Confession Time

Recommended Posts


It's time for confessions. I have not been on the computer much for

several months due to a nasty health issue. I lost a kidney to cancer 12 years ago and thought that I had won the war. Well, it seams that I have not. November of 2013 took me to the hospital with pain in my back. After some scans, the docs determined that I have a tumor in the area of the original cancer. After a year of chemo it was determined that I was losing this battle.

I am now under the care of Hospice and my time on Earth is limited.

Which brings me to the reason for posting this under "Talking Tractors". I will have most of my tractors, implements and parts for sale. Most of them quite reasonable. I have 3 sons who are willing to help. Everything will be sold here at the farm. All the sons have full time jobs and families to take care of, so their time is limited. They are going to keep a few of the tractors to use here on the farm.

First, I would like to sell the '64 Landlord that I bought from member JimH. It has a Wheel Horse winter cab which fits well. The cab is in great shape, no holes in fabric or vinyl. The roof is perfect. Jim refurbed the tractor, but used it very little before moving to Florida. It has hydraulic lift, chains a good blower with all controls, a winter carb kit and pto belt cover. I would like to sell it for around $800. The tractor only need a bath and a carb cleaning. It has not run for a year, but did fire right up with a shot of gas in the carb.

I will compile a list of my other equipment and post it later. The LL will make someone a nice winter unit. That is my reason for posting it first.

Thanks, Jim

Sorry to hear about your health issues ... Best wishes to you.

I am too far away to buy anything, but I am sure that other members will help to make your sale easy and successful ... and they will take good care of your legacy tractors!

So sorry to hear that Jim.

I still need to make another trip down to see Charlie sometime, if I can help you make a sale by dragging something back toward Western New York, please don't hesitate to ask.

Good Luck, and we are thinking of you.

Had to 'tweek" John the other day, since you dropped out of my "inbox"

for awhile. But you have not dropped out of our prayers. You have a runtime clock on that Lay-z-boy? Sure do wish that Billie and I could have made it out there to meet you and Audrey in person.

Hang tight Buddy! And God Bless!dOd

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
