On Saturday I and my brother made a 450 mile round trip
to central Kansas...On the way out we stopped at North 81
Salvage near Wichita and got a part for my GVI MM..

Our purpose for the trip was to haul home a 1940 UTU
MM..It was a very warm day with the temp being 72...Going
out it was very windy in eastern KS but the wind died down
in central KS...Going home with a load on was actually
easier than going out empty..

I have the remains of a 1939 UTU MM purchased in Kansas
in 1981..Its going to come in handy for a few parts such as
a PTO,belt pulley drive,rear rim,etc.

1-- The UTU just after loading it in Kansas.

2--The UTU safely home in MO..Thats a 36" tire under the
tractor..Theres a pair of nice 12.4x38's on the rear of the
trailer..

3--I bought the tractor with no side shields but was
pleasantly surprised when the owner dug some out..

4--The tractor had been converted to electric start many
years ago..I love the generator tightner..It has later model
manifolds..

5--Old Dauer Brothers sign from Falun,KS..My Dad grew up
on a farm 4 miles SW of Falun..In 1929 Grandpa bought a
new 22-36 McCormick there..Around 1939-40 Dad got a
new M Farmall there...They were a huge dealer that lasted
until the Case-IH merger..

You mentioned the manifold and I noticed it right away. It looks to be an LP manifold (COLD) setup how does that function satisfactorily on gasoline??

Dad ran a tightner just like that on his 400 case for 20 some years, pretty quick to adjust, just give it a twist. Smile

If that tightener ain't barbwire its not an authentic field repair. Nice find post some after pictures sometime.

If it was me I would be restoring the 1939! Production numbers are only about 400 for the 1939 model year.

All I have of the 1939 UTU MM #310974 is the rear half of it..When I got it in 1981 the top had already been off the rear end for years and its a rusty mess..Its would be lots of work to use it as everything would have to be moved from the 1940..

Did you happen to travel north to Herington and turn east on Hwy 56 at around 4:30? If so, I was following behind you along with the several thousand crazy drivers on the way to the Kansas State game.
