Great pictures, Bill. I'm enjoying them like the others have said. The second pic shows the M's rear wheels turned (dish in) which you don't often see.

Do you recall the M having any trouble with the corn picker messing up the rear axle bearings? Some talk on another forum suggested that a 2-row picker on an H was almost too much weight, but with the M being heavier, may not have posed a problem.

Thanks again!

Stanton, The photos of the field work came along about 3 or 4 years before I was born. Dad died when I was five so we moved from the farm right after that. My uncles continued on but I would have been too young to know anything about any of the problems they may have had.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
