Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

ant The Good Lord's Telling Me Something

Started the '51 M Farmall to go hook up the Wildcat shredder and when checking it out, had two two low tires on the mains and one on the front. Got them aired up and went to where the shredder is and... both tires are flat. Got them plugged and aired up and ready to go and went to hook up to the steering draw bar and the connection didn't feel right. Ah, sure why not. An inch and a quarter stepped bolt that connects the adapter head to the tractor is all but sheered. Make a new bolt and get that installed and good to go.

Get everything hooked up and drawn up tight and go to the first field to mow.

Yee haw... Mowing time!

No, wait a minute. I had replaced both power steering hoses a couple days ago and noticed the hose block on the pump was cracked. Get the crack ground out and cleaned real good and "fixed" with some two part epoxy. While that was curing, I took a look online, not even expecting to to find a new or even used block and ... viola, Bates has some steel repops. Ordered one on the if and by come.

Well, my "fix" didn't hold. Putt back up to the garage and replace said hose block in the steering motor.

Yeah... Good to go again.

Putt back to the field and actually got that one mowed. Started on the next one and "bink" the sheer pin on the PTO shaft to the shredder popped. Putt back up to the garage and replace said sheer pin.

Yeah... Good to go yet again!! Putt back down to the next field, started mowing and "bink"... new sheer pin did it's thing and left.

Ok, Lord, I can take a hint. Tractor is parked for the day...

The Good Lord is telling me that I'm not getting any onions this year. Some critter has taken a liking to them.

Sounds like the last few years of my farming with the '39 9N Ford.

I looked new tractors that would be at least a close equivalent to the "M" and I'm not spending $60-65,000 on plastic and foreign made parts. I'll suffer through with the old M.

A new shear pin in the PTO shaft and the old gal ran smooth as silk, as usual. No way could I get rid of her.
