Since the spring weather has tried to make an appearance I have been doing some tinkering and spring maintenance.
Decided to see if some of the tractors that have been sitting since last October were ready to wake up. I climbed up on the BN and pulled the switch and tapped the starter. It fired off on the first revolution! I moved it out of the way and decided to see if Miss Daisy the '39 F-14 was ready to wake up. Shook hands with her gearshift (she likes that). Set the magneto advance about halfway and put the throttle at about 1/4.
Put the crank on and made the first pull. (It always takes one pull to get the gas up to the carb.)
I re-set the crank and slowly pulled it over one more crank. She fired right up and settled down into a nice idle. No choke used at all.
I let her warm up a bit and decided it was time for a ride. So we took a little tour around the neighborhood. Miss Daisy loved the sunshine and I enjoyed the ride.
Spring is good!!!
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Nice! she started like that because I wasn't there!!

Nothing compares to a ride on old iron in the warm sunshine!

Does make you feel good when they start like that, doesn't it.

Happy to see the the F-14 is doing fine. I love those old engines, they never seem to quit if taken care of. We are going to try to make it to your Cubfest/CubTug.
The Jeep is also going strong.
They always start good when no one else is around....

IH's are RED. Just say NO to yellow and white!
Let us pray for farmers and all who prepare the soil for planting, that the seeds they sow may lead to a bountiful harvest.
Glad to see they fired up for you easy enough. Maybe I better go out and start mine. A few of them may be a little tempermental.
I don't believe in taking the bull by the horns. I took a goat by the horns once and that was enough excitement for me.

Nice! I think its best to give em a ride if you are going to start them.
It does show that a machine that is cared for will start and run, they are lucky machines
