There's a small tractor show in Christiana Tennesse (just south of Nashville) next Saturday and Sunday.

It's the first show in this area. I'm taking Bertha and a couple others to help them get more exposure.

If you're in the middle TN area, check out the event.

Ordered some copper washers to replace the leaking ones atop the oil filter housing. They should be here any day.

Took Bertha to the tractor show I mentioned in my last post. Along with the '62 Ford 4000 and Susan's Cub LoBoy. Wasn't a big turn out. About 40 tractors total and approximately 150 visitors over the weekend. But it was the very first show for this group and we had a good time. When things seemed to move a little slow I would fire up Bertha to draw attention. We had a nice big field so I even let a couple of the guys that ran the show take a drive on the old steel wheel.

After the weekend it was time to unload. The video below is nothing more than unloading all three tractors. Nothing special, but if you're like me you'll enjoy watching things fire up and move.

Can't wait to get a deck built to mount above the gooseneck. Gotta make room for more things to take to shows

Great job on resurrecting your 22-36! I talked to you last year about a Robin s45 carburetor. Well lo and behold I found one on eBay. It was a little rough, but finessing it a bit I was able to hopefully make it useable. It will be going on my 15-30 shortly. Again great job on your tractor and posts!

Thant's great! Glad you found a Robin Carb.

Mine still doesn't operate properly. But, for what I'm doing with it, it'll get me by for the time being.

I have a lot of work to do on Bertha in the next five weeks. Red Power Roundup in Union Grove Wisconsin will be upon us quickly.

Have you ever thought about bringing it up to Rollag, Minnesota? I know that's a long way for you to travel, but you would absolutely love it! Very large antique tractor, threshing weekend. It falls around Labor Day every year. Probably the largest in the upper Midwest. My brother goes every year, he usually takes his McDs or his red power tractors. Take care and have an enjoyable summer. And by the way, thanks for your service in the military!

not to steal your thread, but I was wondering if you have the governor linkage for the robins carb, I have a manifold and the carb but I will have to make the arm that fastens to the governor rod

Nothing prettier and more refreshing than seeing a clean fuel bowl.
Just wish I had easier access to non ethanol fuel.
Not sure the octane it should run. Probably wouldn't hurt to run higher.




I would be pleased to run that tractor on pure E-100 ethanol. It should run well and E-100 will not mess up that clean sediment bowl like gasoline does. I just wish E-100 or denatured E-98 were easier to get. We run the 15-30 F Oilpull on methanol and ethanol and it runs fine threshing or sawmilling without smoke. I want to put 3 way valves on the fuel lines so that we can do efficiency tests by switching to measured containers or graduated cylinders for measure of consumption while running dynamometer loads. With ethanol you will not have those puddles of water trapped in the bottom under the gasoline rusting out the tank or stopping the engine. The engine will run well with tiny amounts of water dissolved in the alcohol.

Picked up a McCormick Deering 22-36 this week. Need to find side curtains, fuel tank, magneto, steel lug rims. Hope to have it running this summer.

Really glad to see more folks gathering up these old McCormicks. We lost way too many of them in the last big scrap binge a few years ago. There were a bunch of them out there because they were vastly superior to most anything else available at the time.
