I donít think we got Cockshutts down here, and very few Oliverís. This was IH and John Deer country for the big farmers, and Ford and Massey Ferguson for the smaller guys. I had an Uncle that had an Allis Chamlers bull dozer he bought new in the 60ís. Had a backhoe on it, he used it to put in septic tanks.

Bama, I also had an uncle that bought some Allis-Chalmer crawlers. He had bought a sawmill company in the early sixties, and three HD6's came with the deal. They are about the size of a D4 Caterpillar. He skidded logs with two of them and made roads with the one with the dozer. There were a couple of skid trucks too, one was a '57 Dodge, three ton with a Hemi. In the summer all his equipment was in the yard at his home, so he took part of the skid arch off of the Dodge and put on a grain box. I sometimes got to drive a Hemi when I was a kid.
Cockshutt was always a Canadian company and were just trying to get into the 'States, when there came some corporate raiding. The raiders didn't rip the company apart, but made some poor farm equipment decisions and left the company very shakey, so they sold out to White Farm Equipment. So did Oliver, Minneapolis-Moline and New Idea.

Them being Canadian probably explains it. Iíve see a few MM, an Oliver or two, and a few AC tractors. Buddy of mine has an rare one, British Fordson diesel.

Here are the two wheels that I'm going to use, all painted up.
I was telling you about my coolant routing problems, well, the upper outlet/thermostat housing was pointing off to the side, so here is another one pointing up towards the rad inlet.
The water pump inlet points out the wrong side so I made a smallish pipe that contorts around many things to get to the bottom on the left-hand side.

MM- All is looking real nice. Just a reminder to tape the rims before you mount the tires & tubes. Real clean looking water piping. Can't wait to see the rig with the new tires & rebuilt wheels.

Thank you guys. 28, I'm excited to put tape on the wheels.
Here's more fitting of the water pump inlet pipe, and finally painted.

MM - That is one fine looking water line you fab up, now in red it looks like a factory piece. Tape may or not be needed but it can't hurt. Those new tubes are not cheep. We are all looking forward to seeing tires & wheels on that 33.

Here's the red water pipe installed and almost hidden.
The back tires on this tractor were waiting for me so I started mounting one. It took longer than I had hoped for and in this heat I gave up, so after I got the first one mounted, I took the second one to town. Let the young guys work, I say. Here they are ready to go.
