My lips are sealed so tight, wild horses could'nt drag it out of me, but if it were me, I know what I would want to pull out of the bushes. Love a good suspense, where is Angela Landsbury when you need her?

Congratulations!

They must be still sleeping overseas, otherwise there would be plenty of replies to the pictures you posted.

No doubt it is a OilPull F, rad and front wheels are the giveaway.

Has it landed yet at your place? That is quite an amazing find! Have fun with it, I am impatient to see more pics!

All the best
Marcel

Marcel, Richard, Tony and all the Smokstakers.

I have to confirm Yes its an Rumely Oil Pull F

Ok now what is going to happen.??????.

Tomorow we are going to start huge lines of pictures and storys about this subject.
We are standing for one of the most incredible storys ever been told in the old tractor world.
The things you have seen until now is yust a little tip of the ice berg.
There is an hole line of treasures going to follow about this subject.

But before we are going to start posting tomorow i like to say somthing to the Canadians and Americans friends.
For a long time we have thaught about this how we are going to post it.
Wel at the momend there is also somthing huge on Youtube going on also about this subject.
We are in the race at the momend against Youtube with other people who also have post somthing about this subject overthere.
So we can not cut some things out of it enimore and have to tell everybody the hole story.
And if you all let us tel the hole story (you know let the ball role out totaly to the end) i don’t think there wil be a lot people very upsed ore have very huge mixtured feelings about this enymore.

So i want to ask the Canadians and the Americans friends to tel us the hole story until the end.
Now i can understand that a lot people having a mountain of questions at the momend.
But first let us tel the hole story’s once for once.
And on the end i am sure most of the questions will be have answerd.

So i want to ask everybody step with us the next weeks in our huge dream.
A dream that have became reality.

Watch of what is going to happen overhere.

Is this the same tractor that sold, quite privately, in southern Nebraska this fall? P.S. Excuse me Brothers, I didn't read your whole post.

This is so cool. No doubt, there are several of the larger or rarer machines tucked away in buildings that have not seen the light of day for decades, but a story like this is so rare.

This is like a story you would have heard out the 1960's or 1970's. I thought the days of pulling early stuff out of treelines was long over. Perhaps the day you boys fire up the chain saws will conclude that chapter of collecting........... or maybe not?

Bill,

This isn’t the Rumely F your are thinking about.

This Rumely was hidding all here life on one place to the same owners.
It was sold brandnew there by the Rumely factory / plant.

Thanks Jeff,


Xplor its having 8.

See you all tomorow again.

Thanks BC, I had been sworn to secrecy about the Nebraska tractor but I couldn't imagine too many of them left in the wild! The previous owner claimed it is an F but I'm not sure, how do you tell an F from an H? If I can get a couple pics I will start a new thread on it. It's not a bad story either, but sounds like it is not of the same magnitude as yours.

Bill an F only has on cylinder.......That’s the main and first dead giveaway separating an F from an H......Besides that fact an H 16-30 is half the scale approx of an F 15-30.........Very nice find.....encouraging too............one interesting point is the barn looks barely 20 years old yet the tractor is obviously on an old estate lot or farm for it to be an UN KNOWEN tractor? Some of the local collecting fraternity must have been aware of it?......is it leaving the farm now?......
