Shortly after our first restoration, my father and I were looking through a Farmall A parts catalogue when we came across the tool kit in the accessories (I think) section. This jogged my fathers memory, and he went to a cupboard in the house and dug out this.

These are the feeler guages that came with my grandfather's first tractor, a 1947 W4, and they are still in the original envelope!! We went digging around the various garages on the farm and came up with , we believe, the complete original tool kit that came with grand dad's W4, including the "Lincoln lubricater". :D

BTW, the picture is pretty much actual size.

Cool!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!

The "Farmall A" made me remember that I have a line on a BEAUTIFUL restored A in Michigan. I know the guys that did this restoration and its probably "over restored" if anything. I haven't seen it and don't know the price, but if anyone is interested let me know and I will get the details.

Where can I find a Lincoln Luber?

If you put those feeler gauges up on Ebay you might get enought for another Cub...I can't believe how much some tractor stuff is selling for. :roll:

My mom threw away my basebal cards too.

WE still have the tag that was wired to the steering wheel of that W4 that had directions on care of the anti-freeze or some such thing printed on it. It is put up carefully "somewhere". So carefully that we won't find it for at least another 5 years!! :lol:
