Hi Mosses;I appreciate your threshing scene of this engine and mill,along with the grain/box wagon. Your work at bringing this outfit back to life,will be remembered by younger people for the future,of an farming activity back in an era of much harder work than today in a modern combine! I run a Case portable '45' with a mill,as an afternoon 'Old Tyme Threshing' get-together each fall with the neighbours,still a fun thing! I was wondering what the pulleys on the back of the mill were used for? Thanks for now,Oh yea, you'll be ready for the next Guiness Book record attempt! tomq
