6 cylinder Ford Tractor and 24 inch K. G. Separator

Here is a picture of threshing on the Emge Bros. Farm in 1955. It is a 6 cylinder Ford Tractor and a 24 inch K. G. Separator.

Come on Boys and send in pictures of your old gas and oil tractors standing where they may be.

I for one, love to see these pictures in the Iron-Men Album Magazine. I have run lots of these old sod-busters in the early days of Montana.

We must give credit to these engines for the going was hard pulling. They put these prairies into rolling wheat fields. And all they ask is a little oil and cheap fuel.

I have read in the Iron-Men Album that these engines stick. Well, I would like to say some of our good steam fans, one a Mr. C. A. Harsch, E. 8713 Frederick was asked by the Spokane State Fair to bring his out and go to the fair and believe me, you should see the smiles on these peoples faces, when we started these engines and run them around. There was about 300 to 600 people around us all day long and pictures being taken all the time. So I don't think they stick too bad.

So lets have more pictures and more power to a great magazine from an oil, gas and steam fan.
