Dive into a wide collection of classic tractors! Many companies have built hundreds of farm tractors over the years, from the 1910 Case 110 steam tractor to the latest-model John Deere 8320R. The most innovative models changed farming for years afterwards and influenced the designs of other tractors. The most wildly popular tractors have sold in the hundreds of thousands. Tractor Superstars focuses on these remarkable tractors, including technical information such as the engine, horsepower, rpm, top speed, and weight. A wide collection of detailed photographs makes this one book that no one interested in tractors, tractor collectors, or anyone nostalgic for farm life will want to miss.
Just as with his previous titles, How To Restore Classic Farm Tractors and How To Restore Classic John Deere Tractors, Tharran Gaines's guide to rebuilding and restoring International Harvester Farmalls has the kind of detail readers need for a first class job. How To Restore Classic Farmall Tractors contains hundreds of helpful full-color photographs, proven tips and techniques, and money-saving advice from restorers who know what works- and what doesn't.
You and your tractor; it was love at first sight, and you’ve been the perfect pair ever since. But sooner or later, the old iron’s going to show its age. It sputters and coughs, oozes grease, wobbles on its wheels, gets rusty, and sometimes even dies. That plow that came with the tractor is still just an incomprehensible pile of parts gathering dust in the corner of your shed. Never fear. This is a relationship that can be saved--with the help of the How to Keep Your Classic Tractor Alive, a book that tells you everything you need to know to keep your old iron chugging happily along. Now revamped with all color photography and a new design, the MBI classic covers all the basic questions and crucial aspects of buying, owning, rebuilding, and using an old tractor, from maintenance and troubleshooting to plowing methods and trailering. Trying to decide which tractor is right for you? Author Spencer Yost suggests ideal models for work, collecting, or both, and all of his invaluable advice is accompanied by full-color photography. Looking for a parts supplier? An extensive revised and updated appendix will help you track down everything from repro carburetor parts to steering wheel restoration shops. This is a resource no old-iron enthusiast can afford to be without.
