Tractors, Tractors Everywhere
Well we have a few different tractors. A Fordson Major which is my favorite because that is the one I learned to drive first. It was a wedding gift to my parents from my mom's father. He brought it off the boat when it came to this side of the Altantic. But the story that is filled with several questions is not about my beloved Big Blue that has a bark and teeth to match. It is about a poor old batter Iron wheel that suffer damaged at the hands of vandals. I don't know the year but it is a McCormick-Deering. it layed buried under several years of growth I and my father pull it out with Big Blue after I pumped grease on the axles. It was my Grandfather's. I guess to me if I could ever see it run it would be another part of my grandfather brought back. I never had the honor of meeting him but I would love to save the tractor that meant so much to him. I have asked people if there is anyway I could fix it, most tell me to sell it for scrap Iron but I just won't expect that as an answer. I have helped my father rebuild the Fordson and in process of doing the same with the Super A. I guess you could say I am hardheaded on the subject. I don't know much about McCormick-Deering Tractors I have been trying to find any information I can. I know it needs alot of work but I would love to fire it up just once if there is any way possable. The vandals did the damage along time ago. They took an axe to the radiator, and ripped off parts to the motor. My problem is I can not find the information plate on the trator, Does anyone know of another way to find the information I need as in; model and age? I am not sure but mom says this is the first tractor my Grandfather had. I have no Idea what color it is suppose to be mucn less anything else. I don't want to get the manual for the wrong model and year. All four wheels are Iron, it stand about 5' at the top of the engine cover. I am told that it survived a fire when my Grandfather was sixteen, that would have been 1929 but I am not real sure. The fire was after he left the farm and went to Washington DC because his Grandparents died so he went to live with his parents and Aunt. He was a hard working man and so was this tractor at one time. I guess I love these old machines because when they work they work you feel it. I feel at home on one. I love to feel the tire bite when the load is have. The grubble and roar rings in my ear I feel the blood rush and the diesel flows I feel the Iron teeth open the soil below to see fresh dark soil that seems as sweet as the apple pie cooking in September As the Bark and growl to do the job A good healthy days work I love the tractors and the work they do I am home there.
