I am a new subscriber to your magazine and enjoy them very much.

I have been working on a couple of projects that you may be interested in. The first, an ice cream maker, has since been put on wheels to be pulled behind the pulling tractor.

The pulling tractor has five Twin Maytags with a two speed gear box that can be shifted full throttled-a three speed with reverse transmission and a Positrack rear end. The 90° gear box below the oiler was homemade from parts of an old Johnson outboard motor. The cart beside it is for starting tractor engines. I used an old Ford starter, had windings put in to reverse the starter to go the right direction. So far these have been hand built by me only.

At the present time I have put the tractor on hold because of three back operations. Someday I hope to complete the tractor. I have made lots of ice cream and taken the tractor out several times. So far no serious problems with breakdowns.

I was hoping to make some shows in my area but Doc says NO. Maybe next year because of one more operation.
