My husband receives GEM and reads it cover to cover. His first love is his Minneapolis-Moline UB that he has restored and tractor pulls with. He has done quite well with it and has too many trophies for me to dust. Eventually he built a shelf above his work bench in the barn where they can stand proudly displayed.
For the 1994 season of pulling, Dan won first place in our local tractor pulling association and second place in the association across the state. (Second place due to dropping a weight and getting disqualified.)
Sometimes Dan will let me pull too, and I realize why he has the pulling feverit is kind of fun!
Dan has always been handy with tractors and has bought and sold them. The most popular models have been the 9N, 2N and 8N Ford tractors. Due to numerous phone calls and questions about these Ford tractors, we realized how helpful a video that shows people how to fix the tractors themselves would be. It would save these folks some money on repair bills, and it is furl to work on your own tractor with the satisfaction of 'I did it myself.'
So Dan and I decided to make a repair video that shows folks how to tune-up their own tractor, including how to get the front distributor off without removing the hood, etc. It shows how to adjust the carburetor, troubleshooting, starter button replacement, and so much more. We ended up with 65 minutes of information and of course the UB Moline is in the background of the filming.
Our repair video went over so well, and people started asking for an engine rebuild video.
So, we filmed an Engine Rebuild Video. This video shows how to remove, rebuild and completely overhaul the motor. It is filled with so much information I think even I could do it myself! I try not to be too serious when I say that, or Dan just might have me out in the barn rebuilding motors during the day.
P.S. That trophy shelf in the bam shows up in the Engine Rebuild Video, as does the UB torn down. I'm not sure what he is doing to the UB, but Dan assures me it doesn't cost much. (Yeah, right!)
