Stuck tractors

This is a reminder to teach your children well, for you may never know what might happen!When I was 12 or so, lived on a small farm in Spur Texas. My dad had retired, and spent most of his time raising a few acres of crops, and garden crops. He developed cancer at that time and only survived a few weeks after the prognosis. Some months later, I decided to take the tractors for a ride to keep them in running order, although I had never been on a tractor in my life. My dad had 3 tractors, a Ford 8N, a Farmall 504, and a John Deere 620 LP. I couldn't get the JD to turn over, so I cranked the Farmall every so often and took it for a ride down the dirt road. Man did I think I was something! I found out later, that the JD's bucket had blown off and had been stuck due to rain. Mom sold the ford to a neighbor, and with me getting up in High School and buying myself a hot rod, the tractors were soon neglected. While I was in college, a man came by and talked mom into selling him the remaining 2 tractors. He told her both were stuck and offered her 150 each to take them away (to Mexico). I know in my heart the farmall was in running order, but they were gone by the time I found out. Strangely enough, I became interested in antique tractors some 15 years later and helped found a club in Lubbock. I've been restoring JD's and Farmalls ever since. Boy do I wish my dad had told me about the exhaust while he was around! Sure would like to have restored those two. Have a great Christmas and New Year, Jerry
