That brings back a lot of childhood memories using the old "Smalley" belt driven feed mill to grind ear corn right from the crib.

Yep! same for me, my dad and uncle used an Oliver 77 on ours, idled it down and you couldn't even hardly hear it running, was like a sewing machine, lol, I still have the 77.

Nice picture.  Just curious, are the radiator side plates that say EARTHWORM somewhere in the archives?

Those side panels that say EARTHWORM looks to be glued on as they cover the bolt holes for the lights.

PS, I would like a set too to put on my RD4.

This last picture sure reminds me of a farmer near the intersection of Highway 41 and Kansas Avenue. A short way up Kanas Av they had backed a 1H D8 up to the well head and pumped a lot of water. But as time went on more and more of the undercarriage was removed . Kind of became the joke of how much more would be gone when travailing with friends to the next Tulare Farm Equipment show which is now World Ag Expo or something close to that. I want to say remains of the D8 where still there 5 to 10 years ago even though a electric motor had been added to the well head.
