"Peek of the Past"

Postby Arizona Mike » Mon Jun 06, 2005 11:38 am

A friend gave me some old pictures to share. His dad worked for IH back in the 40's. I think these show some early work on loaders and cranes. Thought some might find these interesting :)

Great pictures Mike! I wonder what OSHA would think of those rigs now!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Mike:

Really interesting look at the past. Amazing how far we have come in 60 years isn't it?

BD:

Those things would never see the light of day if OSHA had been around then. :roll: :oops: :roll: :lol:

Course, neither would our Cubs :cry: :cry: Sometimes progress isn't all it is cracked up to be methinks.

I love that old equipment. If you look it over closely much of it has field engineering that was later incorporated into commercially sold units.

:shock: Boy aint that a crazy primitive looking loader unit. those hydraulic rams look longer than the main rams in my old sherman backhoe and mine were all I could handle by myself & a cherry picker removing them for rebuild.

That appears to be a custom designed unit for picking up light loads and then reaching out with them to dump them. don't think I would want to pick up anything very heavy with the rams all the way out.

Hey Mike...GREAT Pixs from the Past :wink: ! It's a SHAME that IH folded the way it did :cry: !!! For a company that made such lasting equipment...folks like Brooks McCormick & Archie McCardell ran it RIGHT INTO THE GROUND :evil: !

OOoo. See the '35 Master Delux in the background. I got one, has 4 sucide doors, no trunk but a continenta kit, rear window has a little pull down shade. Great car....and the tractor/crane/fork lift was neat also.

Jack,

I hadn't thought of this for maybe 30 years, but my first Chevy had the rear window shade. I think it was attached to the hat shelf and pulled up to a hook of some kind. Does your master deluxe have a straight front axle?

I'm pretty sure it does, it is at the shop and i am in the motor home. One thing is that all windows had handles to roll up and down or in and out. Later on all the vehicles had the wing glass on a swivel and eliminated the handles and being the master delux it has crystal flower (or bud) holders for the rear seat occupant and leather hand holds. neat old car, i drove it down and it only took once to remember that mechanical brakes will scare heck out of you after being use to hydro brakes. I wish I had the time to restore her (that was my first goal) but with her, the 50 ford pick up, 2 cubs, 47 8N, 46 JD B (with the outside clutch)(and all its implements) and a WWII piper (the type Glenn Miller was in when he was killed) I will have to drop some of these projects. All the hot rodders from around here and as far away as California have call and asked about her, she would make the ultimate hot rod, but I don't want to see that happen. Guess one day I will put her in Hemmings (the collector mag) and ask a lower than worth price and hope that whom ever buys her will restore rather than hot rod.
any way.......I am glad that she caused a walk down memory lane for you.

Capt.Jack
You have som pretty good projects set up. I know after a while you have to tackle the ones that get your passion going, I like the Piper and the pick-up. Unfortunely Miller was killed in a Noorduyn Norseman C-64 on a cold foggy night on 15 Dec 1944.I just happen to know all this useless information.Thats why I'm where I am today.As my co-workers and friends say."Bob, Is going back on his wayback machine."Hang on. :lol:

See, I had always been told it was a piper observation plane and when this one came one the market for very little money, I jumped on it. Well, you have solved one of my projects. I'll sell that one. I was only gonna do it because I played and enjoyed Miller's work. Perhaps I will take the piper and bury it nose down in one of the pastures. (nope, cant afford that joke). Have a great time at the 'fest and drink a lemonade for me.

Jack,

My partner and I still have the '41 Aeronca "Chief" we bought in 1965. It's kinda far down the list to restore it again. In spite of what we've seen in the movies, the 3 trainer planes that were aloft when the Japs attacked Pearl Harbor were not Stearmans, but '41 Aeronca "Defenders". The same airplane that became the military L-3. I was consulted during the restoration of one of them. The guy who called said it still had holes that were shot in the tail, but they wanted to restore it to flying status.

Here's our last restoration:
