Erik,
I sent several to you over the weekend via e-mail. I'll post some here too.

As you can see I had to take it apart and give it a steam bath. More paint came off than dirt ! I got all new sheet metal and a lot of spare parts.....the original Eiseman ignition switch and key is there too. My plan is to take a lot of pictures of Pat's Cat Ten because he has done a good job and I will need guidence.... :)

Pat, my perpetually under-painted D2, and I hope the LaPlant-Choate CAB ( If I get it back together) OR maybe a Russel grader!



Stephen,
I hope you do bring the scraper as I would like to see one first hand working. Mine is still in pieces. It is requireing a lot of metal work and a whole new language to work on it ! :)

Bill,

What a complete tractor! What is wrapped up in plastic on the back of the TEN? Are you going to bring it to Ken's show in November? I took lots of photos when I restored mine...if you ever have any questions...I am always happy to try and answer them or tell you what I did on mine.

You were lucky to still have the Eiseman magneto switch and key...they are almost as hard to find as the Ensign Carburetors!

Because I put the headlights on...I used a 3 position magneto switch for a Husqvarna riding mower!

Great looking tractor!

Erik and all Chapter 12 members,

I'm actually taking the TEN to a local show near Yadkinville\Courtney on Saturday. Hope this beautiful weather holds out! I'm meeting a good friend at the truck stop in Mocksville for breakfast and then on to the show. I have never been to this one. 100% of the proceeds go to charities each year. Even Duke Energy donates all the power for the food vendors and event needs. I'll let you know how it goes. I'll be checking over my trailer tonight, making sure all lights and brakes are working.

Pat

PS...I went to the Silk Hope show over Labor Day Weekend (without tractor)...I saw Mike Siler's TEN on his trailer but never caught up with him. Mike's TEN is outstanding! I still marvel at his workmanship. I almost got talked into buying a 1949 Allis Chalmers HD-5 that was in darn good shape! But she is a lot more weight than I can carry behind my 96 Powerstroke! Price seemed fair for a running machine with frontend loader and blade!

Wow...

Yesterday's show in Yadkinville was a total washout. It must have rained 2" or more in 4 hours...
There were a total of 96 tractors that showed up since Thursday. Donnie and I got within 5 miles of the show yesterday and it started raining and really never let up. We never even unloaded our tractors. We hung around and ate and spent some money on T-shirts to raise money for ALS disease.
We tried to leave just after lunch...but we both got stuck. My F-250HD is 4 wheel drive but it's not posi-traction...kind of stupid in my opinion to build 4 wheel drive vehicles and not make them posi-traction. So instead of one real wheel spinning...I had one rear and one front spinning! I almost made it out...but it was such a soupy mess that the clay just turns to ice. Donnie didn't make it near as far as I did. His F-250 is a dually but not 4 wheel drive.

Earlier we watched this guy in his older Dodge Ram with a big block V-8 try to pull out a brand new Chevrolet Silverado 4x4 and his trailer. That Dodge must have rooster tailed nearly a yard and half of mud all over the poor guys new Chevrolet. All the Dodge did was go to wide open throttle like he was in a truck pull! The Chevrolet's windshield was completely covered and his grill was packed with bright red clay! He couldn't see where he was going!! The Dodge ended up pulling him 5 feet before they were all stuck!

I had a gentleman come over by me and offer to pull me out...I said you don't drive a Dodge do you?? We both laughed because he watched that spectacle too. He had a very nice Minneapolis Moline tractor that we chained up and he pulled me right out as I just barely kept the throttle open on the my Powerstroke. He also pulled Donnie out.

Erik, we saw one of your tractor trailers there! We talked to the guy and he said he borrowed it from you guys! He was very smart and very skilled as he got the whole rig out of the field very early in the day and did not get stuck!

That was my first show of the year! And the worst I have been too as far as weather goes. The show itself will be very nice in good weather. I felt bad for the organizes because they had so many events planned. They were pretty upbeat for the conditions yesterday and I commended them!

I was going to unload the TEN and help pull people out...but there were enough other tractors already doing that.

I will go again next year...but if it is raining...I will not pull into the show field! It wasn't steep or in a hole...but there was so much water from the intense rain that it just made it a mess like I had never seen before. Even my cloths are stained red from hooking up my truck! I might just throw them out...not worth damaging a washing machine with so much mud!! :)

Hope everyone else had a great Saturday!!

Hey Eric,

We should have plenty of room to play in the dirt, I hope to get down there this week to get the planned location confirmed with Ken and Patty.
