Well it's been awhile since I posted, I'm pretty much back on my feet again, though it is lonely with Georgie gone, I have my two labs, (senior lab Taffy and puppy Sadie) to keep me good company and of course you good folks on ATF have kept me in tune, and I have periodically viewed the web site to stay up to date.

This is a pic of my 2n that I just pulled the motor and sent it away to get a full overhaul. I just wish that once in my life when I buy a gas engine piece of equipment that the owner would be honest. When I bought my 2n the owner said it had been rebuilt, well his rebuild theory and my opinion of a rebuild are vastly different. His idea of a rebuild is you just fix what needs to keep it running so 4 years later I have to do a full rebuild. Oh well such is life.


I have been busy splitting fire wood for my sauna, I'm hoping this may get me through most of winter, I' hoping for another mild winter like last year, oh boy the Farmers Almanac calls for low temps in Dec./Feb. but above temps the rest of winter, they average an 85% of their predictions.


I have pleanty of tanks ready for cutting to make fire pits and my latest project is also smokers.


Here is one of many different figures available for fire pits.


Here is a smoker with the fire box outside of the smoker.

Guess you have been busy. I sure do like that smoker, just don't know if I could afford the shipping cost on one. Still have the pic of it on my putor you sent me.
Where did you send the engine for it rebuild??? Tractor shop or someone you know?

Ron I took my engine to a shop that is local and only work on Ford tractors. It is a highly recommended shop. I am starting to travel a bit, as you know I just got back from Seal Beach, Cal, Oct. 26th to 29th I fly my daughter and son-in-law to Vegas for 4 days, in Jan sometime I'm loading up the van with me and the girsl and heading for Pearland Texas to visit an old friend I grew up with when I lived in Cal.
You guys and Betty keep talkin' about steaks and stuff I just may head out your way Ron and drop off a smoker or fire pit, maybe get to Ky and bring back some stuff also, if I get inticed.

Hope you get the 2n back togather and running without any more unexpected surprises. Those fire boxes and cookers are something. I feel good when I can get two pieces of metal to stick together and then you see something like that and be able to sign your name with a welder. You do good work.

Your Ford is a nice project, Dave, but the wife is crazy about your fire pits....you should maybe take orders on the forum, map out a circular route for a visit with interested forum members and deliver the pits with a delivery fee added. It'd be a fun loop and may even pay for your trip at the same time !!! :D :D :D
May even be able to rustle up some burgers and brats for an afternoon visit. Well, maybe a steak for an out of towner.... :lol: :lol:

Now I never thought of delivering, man that's a good idea, if this winter is like last winter mild I just may have to do a drive.
Great idea, thanks Dave
