I can't believe that the EPA hasn't shut that down yet.

Back up front a bunch of Case's and a Minneapolis (front water tank). I was always amazed how large the Rumely double cylinder is. When parked next to the 20 horse Rumely my dad had it looked like a giant and the 16 horse looked like a big scale model.

We played in the rain and mud at Rock River thresheree by Edgerton WI. Monday was cancelled. Trailer is sitting in a field waiting for stuff to dry up to load tractors and bring back home. I tried to haul them home Sunday but nobody thought it was a good idea......
Id love to have a tractor. Planning on attending a steam school to become a licensed opperator. Also will need to figure in at least an extra $10k for a trailer heavy enough to haul it home.

What are you looking to buy? I haul the "small stuff" When we had the Rumely it was always hired out to an excavating company to move it with a lowboy and a semi.





I am the little kid in the yellow. This would have been in the early 90's

Probably not larger than a 50hp tractor. Any larger and I'll be making friends with an excavation company.

Wow! My wife and I just watched that video and are now planning to go to an event like this as soon as we find one near-ish to us.

Great video!

Does anyone know of a way to change the background color for this forum? All this white is driving me crazy.

I figured out how to change this. It is a universal change in Firefox but that is acceptable for me. Instructions Here. Be cautious it does have some unusual consequences.


That video of the 110 Hp steamer is sweeeet. I too need to get out to one of these events.

The old tractor shows are the best. After attending a few my son got the bug to get a tractor of his own(face covered for internet security).
1962 IH Cub Cadet Original. We have 2 more in parts we're rebuilding.

That looks like one of those rare Ford utility beds behind him. I saw one here about 6 months ago but it was pretty rusty.

In other news another hot, steamy day here in SEPA. Highs in the 90's with humidity right there with it. I can't even go outside for 1/2 hr without sweating a gallon of water off.

Pretty warm down here in GA too. I was out wiring up our shed for electricity yesterday and had to quit when my hands were so sweaty I couldn't grip the wire and the sweat from my head was dripping onto the electrical boxes.

Best part about being retired is setting your own quitting time for work and projects around the house, truck and trailer.

Well at least the rain held off long enough for some mod time today


Surprisingly small
Relay box Relay box


I put this on the pass side above the ic boot next to washer fluid cap. Could also put it on DS but I'm planning something else for that space. I didnt get any pics before rain ended my outside work. Got most of my switch wired in the cab during rain but need to go back under the hood to finish that one Nothing is preassembled on this tho, which is good and bad. Endless possibilities of use, pain in the butt wiring all the fuses and relays tho. Easy enough to do during a movie tho.

Interesting. What functions are you wiring up?

I have been trying to find the time to build a couple of relay "boxes" to hook up to my 650 lower dash (9 switches):



I have them all earmarked and will wire all of the switches to the relay boxes (one box will be +12V hot and the other one will be +12V hot-in-run) and then wire up the functions as I get them installed.

I was looking at the Cooper Bussman 15303 series but yours looks much more cost-effective. I will add that possibility as I get closer to tackling my project.
