Pictures as it sat when I bought it... they drug it 8 feet out of the Bush and took the tarp off of it.

I have never encountered so much tar like [email protected] in a fuel system...
The fuel tank must have been full when parked... sediment bowl full of tar, along with fuel lines and carb bowl... all full of this sticky stinky tar....
Although I think it was better than having a empty fuel tank and getting moisture and condensation in everything, rusting it out.
The "tar" albeit a *itch to clean preserved the fuel system.
FYI acetone worked quite well in cutting that gunk..20190617_135813_1560819254077.jpg

In taking the carb apart one of the floats had fuel in it...
Looked through my scrap... found a couple zeniths but were different floats.. so I thought .. what have I got to loose? If someone else soldered them up, why cant I!?
So I think it went ok.... soldered them up and dunked them in gas while I whip up a couple pizzas!!20190617_180259_1560819666637.jpg20190610_174551_1560819686931.jpg

Equipped with real nicely made hopper extensions.
And a straw chopper!
Even here where we grow quite a bit of straw choppers were rare.

I spent my youth driving a massey harris 82, i still remember the exhaust note those flat head 6 cylinders made. freezing my ass off on an open station combine. i would miss the first few days of school combining into the night on those freaking slow monsters.
i have two in my machinery graveyard. farmers suffered on those guys, Not at all like today.
Even though my equipment is old i still feel the wonderment in having a cab with air conditioning. you haven't lived until you have harvested in the cold nights freezing your butt off getting the crop off.
I don't think it is legal to put a 10 year old on one of those in Sept on hills that make the ass end come up about 6 ft off the ground going down the hills steering by using those standard brakes, lol. Talk about an adrenaline rush, lol.
going to school in Saskatoon, the teacher ask what we did for summer vacation, they never believed me, lol.
Mine is still on the yard getting old like me
the top one was mine, the bottom one was my dads first combine a cockshutt 112. hard times but somehow good memories, almost like a badge of honor to lived it.

Of all the different types of farm equipment, I want to restore a combine more than anything. Not many people restore them, and for some reason, a combine is a farmers pride and joy more so than any other type of equipment. Most old timers stories seem to revolve around harvest.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

I'm happy to have stoked up some old memories... be them good or bad!
It is true about the combine being the pride and joy of a farmer I believe.

So, it appears that my float resolder job worked, after being submerged for about an hour it was still empty... [it's all the time I had]

Though I may have spoken too soon about the tar gunk "preserving" the fuel system..... I got the carb back in [that's a job in and of itself!...]
And in scraping the gunk out of the sediment bowl my screwdriver pushed right through the top... it seems the old gas ate away at the pot metal that the sediment bowl top is made of...
So, I had to run home and "procure" one from another "resting" tractor.

Hopefully tomorrow I will hear that exhaust note!

Keep calm and combine on....

She is alive again!!
Drove it the 8 or so miles home, only running out of fuel once...
It was an absolutely beautiful day to take a little ride in a time machine!

I hope your new project brings you as much enjoyment as it has for me. We used these machines on our farm before my time and my Grandfather had the massey dealer in Trochu, J.E. Frere & Sons so I know the feeling of paying tribute to those who farmed before us. Here is a few shots of my fleet (2 92's with pickups and a straight cut Super92) and a video of me straight cutting canola with my Super 92.
