I took a quick look under the dash, the chock and throttle cables both go into a black plastic box without any apparent adjustments. Has anybody else encountered this issue? If so how...

    Recently was on our way into town to fill my diesel cans when my wife suggested that we stop at TSC and get an additional 5 gallon fuel can. I certainly was not going ignore that suggestion! So we stopped in, I purchased a new can and we proceeded to the gas station to fill the cans. Now we all...

    It's cold a bit snowy in Western Washington

    Nice surprise in the greenhouse

    I have been fighting a daily battle with aphids on my peppers this year. They seem to be impervious to most insecticides that I am willing to use on my food plants, so I have been washing them off every morning for since late April. A few days ago I noticed a small (1/8") worm looking thing on...

    Living in a magic place

    I've spoken in the past about my sister's farm in the Skagit valley, the link below shows what they are all about. My sister has a degree in biological oceanography, she has applied a great deal of her education to the practice of sustainable farming, and has made a good living while doing so...

    I'm puzzled

    As I travel around the area that I live, I have noticed that there are a lot of tractors that are parked outside. In many cases they are parked outside of barns, sheds and shops. Why would you make a substantial investment in a piece of equipment then let it sit out in the elements. I have...

I have been a tractor owner for over 35 years, up until a couple of years ago we had a 1948 8N Ford. As I am...
