The restoration was started in 1974 but stopped for one thing or
another. When we bought it, it was a basket case but thanks to Don
Hinds of Centerville, South Dakota we got some levers, radiator
panels, and other miscellaneous parts. We have it running still
with the original rings and not too much blow-by. The tractor was
purchased new at Beaver Crossing, Nebraska in about 1919 or 1920.
It will be at the Papio Valley Threshers Show in Omaha on July 30,
