A restored 1936 Ford pick-up truck outfitted with “Henry’s Helper” was used to power a vintage Ferguson thresher at the Luxton (B.C.) Fall Fair in late September 2010. Henry’s Helper is a factory-built unit that slides under the truck’s rear axle, transferring power from the rear wheels to the flat belt. “To keep the thresher running at the correct rpm,” says owner Dave Wallace, a member of the Luxton Antique Farm Equipment Club, “I kept the speedometer at 25-30 mph.” The thresher was manufactured in Maxville, Ontario.
