Well I finally got to meet some MTF members!!! Hugh SS/16, WVSears, and I were pretty much having a blast with our Sears tractors, even though we had our share of issues (at least WVSears and I did lol). My diesel is now steering wheel less lol, I finished the day discing with vise-grips as a steering wheel!!

It was all in all a great weekend, and I got to put some faces with the names. I got to meet Hugh, WVSears, atfigure, m25pa, kbeitz, Pa318guy, Ken from NJ,and more that I'm sure I'm forgetting.

I'm sorry I didn't get any pics, as I was too busy having a blast plowing and discing the fields. I know Hugh get some cool pics and vids, hopefully he'll chime in when he gets a chance to and post em up.

To anybody that gets the chance to do this, I strongly urge them to come out and have some fun and meet new people.

I can't help but laugh about the steering wheel. What is it with these Sears tractors and their steering wheels? It seems like everyone who wants to remove the wheel can't and occasionally they fall off while operating them. LOL!

I did get some pics lol. If you look closely at the pics of us using the discs, you can see the mighty diesel Sears rocking some vise-grips as a steering wheel lol!!

I think that diesel was just to strong for a normal steering wheel! I was great meeting you and glad you had a great time!

I had a great time. I got to meet alot of new people. I think all of the guy and gals that put this on deserve a big thank you for making this possible :thanku: The food was awesome also.

Heres the story on mine and Jesse's breakdown. I had been battling a dead battery all day (thank you everyone who helped me). I was on my way out to field when the tractor stalled. I hooped off, hooked the jumper box up and it started. I heard a tin-ie knocking sound. After further investigation one of the flywheel screen bolts stripped out and the bolt was hitting the outer flywheel screen. While I was waiting on Hugh to get back I see the diesel powered sears heading back befor he should be and Hugh was no where to be found (still plowing). Jesse pulls up and his steering wheel is laying on his plow and he was steering with and adjustable wrench.:swow:
So I got my issue take care of and jesse managed to make due with his vise grip steering device. The we all enjoyed a round of discing. I had a lot of fun

Sure was a lot of tractor's there. I think there was more this year then last year. Next year I will bring one over to join in the fun. Maybe something different then John Deere or Cub, maybe a David Bradley.

I don't need to know eight digit grid coordinates, but where exactly does this take place, is it in the same local each year, and how does one find out when it's happening?

I had fun just reading your stories and looking at the photos, so I'm sure you lot had a blast because not one of you in the photos had a furrowed brow. Bad pun intended.

Cheers and thanks for sharing,
bolillo
