It was great to be there and see old friends as well as make new ones. Hoping it won't be 3 yrs before I can make it back this time.

Here are a couple of videos I took of the Tractors and the engines at Crosby. Sorry about all the wind noise during the first part of the tractor video. It was very windy on Friday!

Hi Guys

It has been a busy few weeks in Crosby ND! First the threshing bee! Then the Rivers Auction! Last weekend the 100th anniversary of the Court House! There was a parade for that too! We paraded tractors/threshing machines and cars down main street along with many other parade entries!

Today I was down to Crosby and got the Tillsoil running. We got it together and outside just before the show and ran it for a few minutes but it needed more tinkering. So today was the day to tinker. I got it to run a pretty good but of course it ran better after I took the video. It made six warranty laps around the shop then we backed it inside (all under its own power) for more details to be added!

Here is the video https://youtu.be/hCdT8ucJCKs

Till soil sounds pretty good maybe a little rich. Fine tuning will look after that.

ID:	288308I found the sign pictured below while I was loading a work bench I purchased at Tony's auction. No Dean, the bench is not for my use but for my "friends" use that so willingly do the work for me. I was perplexed that it is J.O. Tysse and Riverstein completely baffled me. John explained it all. The sign was made by Waldo Morstad and placed on the road in front of John and Tony's shops many years ago. Waldo referred to John as J.R. after JR Ewing of Dallas fame and Tony as Riverstein due to his bargaining behavior. I agreed with John that the sign should remain in Crosby. Waldo another great name from the past.

Will, you should post the engine video in the gas engine section also. I think there are a lot of gas engine guys that don't make it over here to the tractor section. Nice video.

Hi Guys

Went to Crosby but nobody was home today! John and Glynn had gone to the Drake ND show. But there is always something to do. Put the mag back on the Little Devil Hart Parr so it can go to the New Rockford show next weekend. Also with the help of parts from the Fordson house I put a new manifold on a Fordson for a fellow from out in Oregon who used to live near Crosby. He wanted to get it running for the show next year. The old manifold looked terrible! Huge cracks and would have not been worth while welding since a new one was available. It ran like a top after!

https://youtu.be/8oFnkUPcpF0

Thought I had a video of the Little Devil running too but I must have pushed the wrong button and only have a snap shot! But it ran good too!

That fordson has been the source of a lot of fun ribbing Wilbur about it not running long enough to make the parade! Now he won't have any excuses.
