    1926 McCormick-Deering 10-20

    Well, I made a deal on this a couple of weeks ago. We are going to pick it up tomorrow. Needs a new mag and it should run. I have no worries. I know the owner, he's a big collector.

    That's mean

    She hasn't said we couldn't. I'm guessing she hasn't thought about the steel wheels.

    Are you going to restore it, or leave it as is; but running?

    We went to pick it up but, it wouldn't shift. It was stuck in gear. We pulled it out of the barn and into the shop. He wasn't go to let it leave with out the tranny working right. We took a couple covers off and didn't see a problem so we drained the tranny thinking maybe there was some water in there.

    We heated up the plug after it wouldn't move. No water, the 90 wt was cold and thick. It came out like soft-serve ice cream. It sat on top of the drain pan it was so thick. After that drained out it shifted fine.

    After we got it home Dirty decided he should finish his sickle bar project to make room for it in the shop. I was going to just put it in the shed. As I feared pushing it off the trailer got a little tough as we hit the 3 foot of soft ground in front of the shop. It wasn't hardly parked and he was tearing into it.

    I kinda forgot about pictures.

    That gear lube was most likely mineral oil. It has an unmistakable foul odor to it. Years ago I worked on some old trucks that used mineral oil in the differentials and transmissions. When cold that stuff was as thick as grease.

    It was gear lube. Actually smelled pretty fresh. The PO said they had it in the shop for about 2 weeks 2-4 years ago. He replaced the head gasket and did some other work to it including replacing a stuck main bearing. He also had the radiator redone. Cast iron radiator, seemed light for cast iron. He went on to other projects and moved this to the barn.

    It has a sling oil system. Before you start it you have to put a little oil in the valve cover to oil the leathers so they can drip on the valves. It will run on Kerosene or gas. You have to make a couple of quick changes to switch fuels. I don't see us running on kerosene.

    These are the hand holes on the left side of the block. Pretty cool to be able to look right in there. The gasket os just a piece of rubber.

    The valve train. Notice the felt in the trays to drip oil onto the valves and push rods. You're suppose to oil it before starting by running oil down to small holes in the valve cover.
