Here at Sterling Publishing Co., Inc., we are in the very beginning stages
of putting together two books on tractors from the mid 1920?s to the 1950?s.
One book is for children or young adults, while the other is for adults.
In these two books we are going to profile both tractor manufacturers as
well as specific models of tractors. Therefore, we will need company histories,
tractor profiles, photographs and old advertisements for all of the following:
Sons & Co.
Moline and Twin City
Manufacturing Company (OMC)
Tractor & Implement
Wheel Company (Economy Tractor)
let me know if you have historical information, photographs, or any
other helpful information on the above, or any other, antique tractors.
Anybody that contributes to the books or provides photographs that are
used in the books will receive an acknowledgment in each book and a free
of each book.

tighten up the front end on your M-H 44 Standard? New king pins are still
available through your local Massey Dealer for about $80 CDN each. I got
Oilite bronze bushings (1.125"OD x 1" ID x 1.5" Long) from a local bearing
distributor ($2.95 CDN each). Make sure you ream the bushings and drill
grease holes once they're installed. For thrust bearings, I used NICE #610's
($11.00 CDN each); all parts fit like a glove.Derek Wilson - firstname.lastname@example.org
