Thanks It s a long shot, David James you wrote on Tuesday, October 02, 2007 PDT I have a friend in New Zealand,who buried her fathers samson tractor,and i know where it is, it has been underground for around 40 years dose anyone one think if it is salvagable.
You could be killed outright with a bad impulse on an old Du4 or a Du2.
You can replace these with the new MFR or a MJA-c American Bosch magneto.
The tractor had been parked for nearly thirty years. I tried the engine with the hand crank and it turned freely.
I removed the engine cowling and blew out the top of the engine. Added fuel, one of my tractor batteries, and hotwired the ignition.
The Town has been offered a donation of a 1939 or 1940 Farmall B which has been restored. This is small enough to fit on a car trailer to bring to the tractor shows. I was told several years ago it was worth over 10,000 but since the times are a little harder I will sell it for 7,000 I am located in North Central Wisconsin. I d like to use the photo for his birthday cake and, as maudlin as it might seem, for his headstone.
The tractor originally belonged to a family that farmed in our county and having it as part of the Town s Hostetler Auto Museum would be very complimentary because of its history. He had his headstone placed several weeks ago - complete with a picture of a Case tractor.very sparingly I have used all the gears and the pto, today I plan to return to the ranch and re-mount the mower. Peter, Your tracks are coming off because either your bushings, pins or drive sprockets are worn. Look at your Sprockets, does the right side of your teeth, if the tooth is at 12 o clock have a larger radius than the left that is the side that drives the crawler forward. Your tracks have a pin and a bushing between each link.Lower field is getting really tall and I am in love with the thought of mowing that field. from properly working the ranch Just thought I would add my story so far, to those already here. Idealy, the bushings take the wear and are replaced before there is damage to the sprockets.key was broken off inside the lock she sputtered, fired and ate my battery for breakfast. just plain fired right up and purred like a kitten.. This prompted me to try the side mower......prompted me to research the side mower..low charge Charged the battery and returned the following day. prompted me to use my brain to figure out that it had been re-connected simply for storage and use..I am a widow for two years and need to sell this tractor.
