Dell - What a great guy. I so wish I would have had the chance to meet him. He offered so much help over the past 15 + years with my n tractors. I think of him often when I am enjoying my n. Rest in Peace Dell.

Wow sad news for some reason I came on and just found this about Dell. RIP Dell and I have met the interesting person in Chattaroy, WA with a few other old guys here still. We talked a bunch in person about doing stuff to 8N's Ect. He would have loved hearing about how it took 23 years to get a 1954 Howard I have been looking at. I just picked up a Series #1 "Howard E60 Rotavator". They were used with the 8Ns and Massey Ferguson TO30 often. You used a Howard Reduction Gear box added to the tractor behind the transmission. IT changed the ground speed to real slow and the PTO Speed High. Main drawback it used small gears to do the reduction and people used it to pull stuff and broke a lot of them. Pulled and sold several of them including used for Rotor Tilling. I have been waiting 23 years to get this one and it is still in the melting snow. I ran into it when I was first getting into 8ns and TO 30s. Wanted to restore it way back then but had to wait till Charley died to get it??? I see Steve Zip Code is still here too. Would you think I would own a New John Deere? I ended up getting a new JD 4044M Diesel (4x4) last winter and just love it till the exhaust cleaning cycle happen or one day it breaks down and I don't know how to fix it. 2 hard clean up winters in a row with power everything is nice at 66 years of age. Restored a 1948 Dodge 6x6 Power Wagon and sold it for enough to pay the obscene amount they wanted for the JD plus some! Never would have taken out a $32K bank loan to get it! That 6x6 was my last project now I just play snow plow on the JD during the winter and road grader during the spring. Bet it does not run as long as the 1953 TO30 Massey Ferguson Orchard I sold to a friend around 15 plus years ago? He still has it and it is clean as a wissle. Blows me away I am on my 3rd or 4th tractor. I should buy it back for back up on the new JD just in case. Dell will be missed and nice this site has Archives so his information is not lost. Mark

I went green because I got lazy and love a Automatic with power everything. The only other dealer in town was a red India made tractor? Nice comment wish the new stuff was so easy to work on. Just fixed a 1954 TO30 that has been giving the owner fits for months running and not running. It was the coil wire it had the carbon center burned up about 1/2" inside the wire. Pulled out the wire and you could see the carbon dust from arching all over it. Cut the end off re/did the brass end it fired right off!

Dell and I took to each other early on in my net experience. We both got to using N's about the same time. Farmed with them in similar manners, had very like sense of humors and came to within 50 miles of each other for a meet up.

Meeting him was on my bucket list but just like Hogman, I guess that window has closed.
