Thank you Mark.
I can't wait to get back to work on this big ole girl.
Will post info as I work on it.

One of the bigger issues, side from timing, is a mild corrosion in the fuel tank that keeps plugging up the fuel valve. Can't wait to get the tank off, cleaned and resealed.

On a couple different notes:
I've bought a second set of spare front and rear wheels. The first set I bought have some bad cracks in the rim/wheel areas. Some of the cracks have been welded in their lifetime. The rears have had broken and spliced spokes, and one of the rear hubs has a broken section out of it.
Thought it best to go ahead a jump on this second set.

Vintage tractor show season is upon us. I'd like to go to as many as possible if the distance isn't crazy. Living near Nashville TN, it's nothing to drive towards Kansas City and visit family. Hopefully I can take the tractors up there for a show.
Really want to go to my first Red Power Roundup even though my IHC McCormick-Deering is gray. Unfortunately I think there may be a schedule conflict.

Also, I'm working out a deal on a couple abandoned rock crushers. The smaller New Holland looks like it can be brought back to life. The larger of the two (don't know the manufacturer) is beyond rough. But it has most of the conveyer components. May be able to revive that portion and combine the two.

Here's some photos of the rock crusher I'm hoping to pick up and get back in working order. Think it'll make a nice addition to take to shows with the 22-36. Boring for many but I think there will be some that'll enjoy seeing an old piece of history operational.

Rock crusher would be unique for most farm shows, as they were generally used in road construction. Hard part may be finding a good supply of limestone to crush, but the show might be willing to buy to reuse for grounds maintenance!

Found a couple of old ads.



Judging by the length of the chassis I think the one I'm picking up resembles the one in the ad below. It's missing all conveyor system.



There's a good possibility I may work out a deal on buying another rock crusher. The second one is a larger unit, in much worse shape and has what's left of a rusted out conveyor system. The frame it's sitting on is half original and half what looks to be early 1900's automotive rear differential. When you're equipment busts you gotta do what you can to make it operational again. Better assessment of the two units when I secure them on the trailer and get them home. Hoping to hodge-podge enough pieces together to have one operating with a conveyor.

I really need to stop looking for implements. Still have a long ways to go on Bertha.

Still wanting to put together the rock crusher project. Need something to run of the belt pulley. But also interested in something to take to plow days, or the sort.

Currently looking at a McCormick Deering disc plow. Appears to be complete.
Any ideas on what it's worth? 5 or 600 bucks?

Feedback, suggestions?

That is actually a on-way disc harrow or "harrow-plow" as the IHC literature I have calls it. It combines features from both the disc plow and disc harrow. I bought the 9' version of that implement a few years ago for $300, but it was missing 1 wheel and the hitch. I have since obtained a wheel but still need to build a hitch.

Looking like I may have found the disc harrow a little too late. Another buyer has first dibs. Oh well, plenty of attachments, implements and projects out there.
