Hello All,
In post #95 I put some Twin City leftovers in the garden and promised to post again later when the garden plants began to color the changing landscape.
Here is a late summer view. Only one cat this time

Hi Frank,
If you look back at post #95 the cats and dog were all over this thing when I put it in. They did not bother to investigate the late summer photo shoot so I suppose they are not very impressed either.
I sold the old F-20 I was using for yard art...running out of junk to use for yard art. Anyone else got ornament photos?
Tony

Hello all,
Have had a rather nice unmolested original F-20 here for some time. It makes wonderful yard art as it has a highly desirable "long term authentic patina" to go along with originality.
I parked it along side an old wood building near my driveway and the changing season has provided more opportunities for photographs. The general public really likes this one, I hope you enjoy it as well.
Tony

The D is "running yard art". The G was lined up with it for a photo op with a nice 4020 that came to visit its older cousins and get a new injection pump. . .

I bought another yard ornament several weeks ago, need some front steel. May just end up welding up something. Got 6 remnants of tractors altogether and had to scrap all but these two because they had drained all the oil out some time ago to scrap them and the f-12 transmission was locked up. Did get it to roll after I got it home, took off as many good parts as I could find on the others before they went to harvester heaven.
Years ago I used to think about re-using rearend oil out of my tree row parts tractors, not anymore. It sure doesn't take long for everything to rust and become useless.

About 20 years ago I brought home a Farmall 200 "To plow the driveway" I parked it next to the driveway and was happy. My wife said, you need to get a shed to keep that in. I said it would be fine. couple days later. I really think you should get a Shed to keep your tractor in. It will work better and last longer. That was when I realized she was thinking That thing is ugly you need to get a nice looking shed to hide it in. I took her with me and we picked out a nice shed. No tractor in the yard.

Tractors in the driveway.
Late this last fall I had several tractors cluttering up the dooryard. I began to leave some of them and mow around them for several weeks. People were stopping in to view them so I just let it be that way for a while
After numerous complaints from my wife and daughter about lack of parking spots for our cars and trucks I finally gave in and moved them.
Temporary yard art. great fun while it lasted.
Tony

Here is an Allis Chalmers All Crop combine that a guy is using for yard art. I was curious
to see how the engine powered the combine compared to the PTO powered combine.

My 60 all crop was engine powered but the man that sold it to me wanted to keep the engine so he provided me with the pto changeover parts necessary. I always figured one less engine to service was a better deal so that's what we had. That 60 all crop was a fine combine.

Back in the time when these were still plentiful and I was in High School, I was just starting to collect tractors. There were the little Allis B and C tractors around, most had shot motors. The local scrap yard had a pile of motors from the combines they scrapped. I bought several of them for parts, when opening them up, most were like new inside as they had very few hours on them. I cleaned some up and used new gaskets on them and installed them on the model C s we had. Ran them for years like that. In the hills around here the auxillary motors helped out a lot as the tractors were small and many didn't have a PTO. Many farmers barely could afford a All Crop, so they pulled them with what ever tractor they had, mostly Fordsons and McCormick Deerings. The F 12 was also a popular tractor here, but was short on power, so the combines and balers all had a seperate motor. That little Allis motor was many times better than the common air cooled V4 Wisconsin that most implements used.

We have an old All Crop Model 60 made around 1934 with the round top and the bucket elevator and the bigger hopper which went down so the drive shaft went into the bottom. It has the Farmall mounting and we ran it with a 1928 Farmall. It was a good machine but the gearbox vibrated and cracked the sheet metal so we made a permanent repair there.

I worked with a few of those Wisconsin V-4 engines on balers, combines and on a Jaeger 11-S concrete mixer. They are excellent, well made engines. I had a cousin who was an expert Air Force mechanic who could not take care of anything and he ruined one by making stupid mistakes. I was a high school senior and had to make many corrections for his stupid actions.

It's nice to see that Model 60 in post 112. I saw one like that with the engine and it was equipped with bagger equipment. It was in San Jose California area.

Oh, we had good service from them, easy on fuel. The big thing was to keep the cooling fins clean and don't stall or shut it off till done for the day, they would be a bugger to start when hot. We used a hammer mill drive belt on the tractor pulley to start them most times, electric start would have cured the starting issues. The little Oliver #15 combine we had used a small Continental liquid cooled power unit, it did start well enough but was terribly short on power. The combine did a good job but it wasn't all that good with soybeans. The canvas apron would choke up at the bottom.
