Hi Guys

It was time to winterize the Stanley and put the burners back in after some repair. It worked great after the burner repairs and after a test run John and I took it for a tour around town.

John also just bought a 1905 Model F Ford. Here is a photo of it.

I had better get back to tractors here before I get fired! This tractor was built by a local fellow using an All American truck frame and radiator, Model T Ford Engine and trans as well as another car trans for more gear selection and a truck rearend. It had different rear wheels when they used it. Seems to me John said front axle was from a car too but I can't remember what kind.

Kelly, do you know if the four(?) big IHC tractors that went to Rollag from Crosby for the IHC special are coming back to Crosby in time for next year's show?

All the best

David

I spent the day in Crosby yesterday. Lots of projects on the go in the shop! There is talk of Stationary engines possibly being the feature for next years show. It looked like a strong possibility as John had three engines in the shop. A Gould Shapely and Muir 12 hp. which will stay in its working cloths and a Mogul receiving a new paint job. The other was in the back room my picture is poor and my knowledge of gas engines the same so you guys can identify it! I will attach some pictures.

The All American is finished too! This is a tractor that was made by a couple of local brothers that farmed in the Crosby area. I will let John Tysse tell the story of the tractor as he knows it best. But this is a fine example of ingenuity and a piece of local history from the Crosby area.

Many years ago (at least 25) this little guy was haning around Johns shop and interested in Gas Engines. He was maybe 10-12 years old at the time! He had a keen interest in how things worked and began to collect engines. Then his interests changed a little ...horses.....then Girls I suppose (not sure of the order there!). He became a law enforcement officer in another part of ND then returned to Crosby to be Deputy Sheriff for Divide County. He has taken on a restoration project of this 1929 JD D. It is good to see him involved in a tractor project and around Johns shop again!

So if you get a speeding ticket when you come to Crosby! This might be the guy giving it to you! (Bribe him with JD parts you might get off)

We did a little work to the wheels for the Samson Truck so it can get back on all fours again. That is just one of the projects John has on the go. When you look around the shop you will see....two Tilsoils , Waterloo Boy tractor, Case Car, 30-60 Rumely, Avery tractor.....just to name a few! Crosby is always a busy place with lots to see and do!

I actually talked to John a couple of weeks ago about the "D" John Deere. It sounded like he had an abundance of projects. Anything from a Case car, to a John Deere and beyond.

I've actually been through Crosby twice and had no clue as to all the goodies up there. Next time I'll have to "stay a while"!
