Default Where do I belt up?

After pitching sheaves in Manitoba last week, I thought I'd be smart and be the only guy to ever have threshed soybeans with a GS&M Ideal tractor!
I never claimed to be very bright. But? Where in the sam hill do you belt up to this outfit?

I'm not sure belting it up would work but I think you should borrow the yellow globe on top of that combine and have the first GS&M tractor with auto-steer!!

You belt it the same place as you usually belt it when it doesn't run. Mine is red, I've never had to belt it up!

I was just having some fun while the combine was sitting there. The GS&M starts easily, every time.
The beans were a bit wet for harvesting. Looks like they should be going tomorrow. They are not planting wheat so I might get a chance to do some ploughing.
A few more pix. Quite the changes in over 100 years. The GS&M cost around $2,600 in 1913, but a homestead filing fee was 10 bucks. The JD combine is around $600,000 less the headers, but a 100 acre farm just sold the next road over for over a million!
The GS&M worked hard in her life breaking land and threshing. The JD combine works hard every year putting several thousand acres of crops through her body.
The GS&M was worth the expense putting her in running condition 100 years later. Will the young lads whose grampa owns this combine be interested in restoring one 100 years from now? I don't and won't know. Maybe they will. God Bless them.
The JD combine has all the frills and thrills, but it is still just a self propelled threshing machine. It is all actually very good fun.

A remarkable contrast, one wonders what the next 100 years will bring.

If the government and the USDA have their way, only the corporate giants like Monsanto and the like will control farming. The family farm will no longer be possible. Every since Nixon and Earl Butz, the policy is over production by corporate giants to keep commodities cheap so as to use it as a weapon of control to the rest of the world. One would think that sooner or later that idiotic theory would end and we could once again return to our strongest foundation. Those giant harvesters like that above will be like the giant coal mine shovels and other giant machines, will simply be scrapped out to make way for the next version.
