OK so even better yet that draws a link from David Brown to James Bond. I'll take a DB5 with all the 007 accessories

If you weren't so far away, I could use some help with that also.
Did you notice my N has a pre filter on it?

It keeps the chaff out of the oil bath filter so it doesn't require as much maintenance.







{edit: Guess I should have pasted the photo link! }

I'd posted a few in the Agriculture thread:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/26-mini-challenges-games-photo-stories/16...ml#post3716801

However, a thread dedicated to just tractors is not only a great idea, it's a good excuse to look through my old pictures. I'll post some more here in a day or so.

Thanks for the link, a couple others had mentioned that thread.

On the topic of filters and such on tractors - I noticed the instructions on an air cleaner when shooting tractors at the Harvest Festival. One part stood out for me - "When the tractor is operated under dry, dusty conditions" - gee, that never happens on a farm.

The air cleaner was installed on a 1929 Rumely Type W Oil Pull shown here sitting beside a 1930 Wallis/Massey Harris.

Thought I posted these last night. Guess not. Must have been a dream or something . . . . . . .

Last April we had a minor wind storm, and I spent a warm summer day cleaning up the windfall. I usually take it down to the river, to use for summer bonfires. On the way down I always have to stop at the top of the hill and place the N in double low gear (it has a Sherman Over/Under auxiliary gearbox) so it doesn't run away. The N tractors are famous for having crappy brakes, and mine is no exception. This time I stopped completely and made a few photos.




After unloading the wood and branches I had a well deserved ice cold beer and took a swim in the river. It was still high, deep and swift so it was more like wade out, swim back and hope the current didn't carry me away.

Oh, and the water was brisk, fed from the spring snowmelt. Even though we had an unseasonably warm day (about 85 as I recall), the water was nearly as cold as the beer.

Brrrrr!!!!!!!!!

I looked at a diesel M before picking up my 8N. The M was interesting, diesel wasn't very common back then. Today's tractors are exclusively diesel.
