Today we venture outside and have a look at an IH McCormick 1 Point Fast Hitch plow that has seen its better days. This moldboard plow has IHC's newer style plow bottoms with replaceable share and shin.


This plow is in this sad condition due to past owner neglect. The landside heel in the second photo shows the extent of the wear. The landside heel is almost worn beyond recognition (new heel shown in lower right). The plow share is shown in the photo with a new share to show the bottom edge and point wear. Needless to say the share, landside, landside heel, and shin are all worn extremely badly. These are all referred to as tillage wear parts on a plow and are expected to wear with use.


The real damage to the plow can be seen if you look at the underside of the plow. The plow frog bottom is badly worn due to lack of protection that is provided by the wear parts (share and landside). When the plow bottom is this badly worn it is hard to pull and difficult to get a clean furrow. With replacement as needed of the tillage wear parts a moldboard plow can last lifetimes and it will plow as good as the day it was delivered.

We stock a wide range of plow and plow wear parts for older plows of all makes.

So in closing, take a quick look at your plow wear parts and replace them as needed. Doing so will preserve the life of your plow and it will pull better. You will also get nice clean furrows and your family and neighbors will admire your new found plowing skills.

Please contact us for any additional information or help getting the correct replacement parts for your moldboard plow.

Here are some pictures for mid-morning today Dec. 9th, 2018 of our tractor salvage yard. The snow started during the night and as of late morning there was 10 or so inches on the ground and snowing steadily. By dark the total was up around 12 inches and it started to change over to sleet and the dreaded freezing rain. Hopefully it will stop overnight.

For our viewers in some parts of the country, this is a typical winter day while others have never experienced snow at all. To put this in perspective for Burlington, NC (central NC) here are a few statistics based on the past 30 years of data. December average snowfall for the month is 1.5 inches. The TOTAL annual snowfall is only 7.7 inches. Here is a link to the average climate data for Burlington for the past 30 years.

Needless to say this is an exceptional record setting snow event for this part of the country. But as always, it will be back to business Monday AM so please contact us if we can be of help.

Thank you for stopping by.

Here are some photos of an IH Farmall Super C tractor that is in the process of being disassembled. Sometimes salvage parts are pulled straight from the salvage yard. When time allows the tractor is brought inside, disassembled, and added to shelf stock.

This Farmall Super C tractor will be parts on a shelf and a memory by the time you view this post. The following photos show the transmission, differential assembly, bull gears, and shifter rails clearly without the gear oil. This drive train is in good condition in spite of being 65+ years old.

A couple points of interest are the PTO/ belt pulley drive shaft running through the center of the differential housing and the bull gears that take the power from the differential to the rear axles. The shift rails in the underside of the transmission case top clearly show the 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th, and reverse shifter rails and fingers. These do wear and cause difficult shifting and engaging 2 gears at once causing the transmission to bind and lock up. With good lubrication and proper fill levels, these drive trains will
perform for decades without major service.

Please contact us for any Farmall parts you may need.

The Monday after Thanksgiving and it's back to work. Today finds an IH Farmall Super A and Cub tractor both waiting to be moved into the tractor salvage yard.

The Farmall Super A is a complete tractor with straight sheet metal and a full set of wheel weights. This Super A also has front cultivators and a nice solid 1 Point Fast Hitch. The Fast Hitch also has a lift extension bracket to increase the lifting height for extra ground clearance for attachments.

The Farmall Cub is also a nice complete salvage tractor. It has straight sheet metal and also full wheel weights. This Cub tractor has good usable tires.
The operators seat unlike the original solid pan type is an aftermarket pan seat complete with ventilation.

If you or someone you know is in need of Farmall Super A or Cub tractor parts, one of these tractors probably has what you need. So please take a moment and look over the photos and contact us if we can be of help.

It is a rainy, cold Monday in central North Carolina. Let's check out the dry warm shop to see what repairs are in progress. A IH Farmall 140 tractor is in for several repairs.

The brake springs that hold the brake pedal up have failed and need replacing. Spring replacement is a relative simple repair. If left unfixed, the weight of the pedal will cause the brake lining to ride on the drum wearing out the lining at an accelerated rate. This leads to brake failure and worse case brake drum damage. As we have covered here before you have to remove the final drives to get to the brake bands to replace them. This is something you would like to avoid until the linings are worn out from normal use. If your pedals do not fully retract back when released, you may want to replace the spring(s) to prevent needless brake drum lining wear. They are used for both the brakes and clutch in these tractors. Below is a link to the springs.

While the 140 was in the shop, the PTO assembly and valve cover gaskets were also replaced to stop leaks. The last photo shows tractor ready to be returned to the owner with a nice new seat back and cushion for the operator.

Please contact us for any additional information regarding repairs or any of your parts needs

New to Burch Store Tractors is another Oliver 440 tractor. The Oliver 440 tractor is the follow on to the Oliver Super 44 tractor with a new paint scheme and some minor changes. The Oliver 440 was only produced from 1960 thru 1962 in Oliver's Charles City Iowa plant with a total of approx. only 700 built.

The Oliver 440 and earlier Super 44 was Oliver's attempt to counter IH's domination of the row crop tractor market with very limited success. For contrast over 8500 IH Farmall 130s were produced from 1960 thru 1962.

This Oliver 440 has good straight sheet metal and is a complete tractor with cultivators. If you or someone you know is an Oliver collector and would like a row crop Oliver, this might be just the tractor.

Please contact us for any additional information on this or any of our other Oliver Super 44's or 440 tractors.

New to the equipment yard is a Massey Harris Pony Mounted Spring Tooth Harrow. Massey-Harris built six implements especially for the Pony tractors for the small acreage farmer. This implement is quite unusual in this area and rarely has one come up in auctions considering the number of M-H Pony tractors we have seen.

One of these six implements is this mounted spring tooth harrow. It was referred to as a digger in the past, and these days most commonly called a tillage tool. This tool still has the spring arms attached and appears to be complete and in good condition.

This would make a super nice piece of equipment mounted to a restored M-H Pony tractor. Also this could be a nice finishing touch to a M-H Pony tractor when being shown. So if you have a M-H Pony tractor or know someone that does this could be just the thing.
Below is a link to this spring tooth harrow.

New to the equipment yard is an attachment that was very common in the past but you rarely come across one in good shape these days. It is a New Holland belt driven saw. These saws are referred to as a buzzsaw, buck saw, or cordwood saw in different parts of the country.

These saws have been driven by hit and miss engines and later by the belt pulley attachment on tractors. Most all older tractors had an option for a belt pulley drive. These saws were used to cut cord wood and wood slabs. Needless to say carefully operation of these type of saws are a must to avoid injury. There is even a company that currently produces a 3 PT hitch PTO driven updated version of this style saw.

There are several YouTube videos of these saws in action. Take a moment and check them out.
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=tractor+buzsaw

So if you are in the market for a good belt driven buzzsaw this could be just the thing. These saws were usually modified to work with hit and miss engines, rear belt pulleys, and side belt pulley tractors as the saw changed owners or the owner changed tractors.

So as always, please contact us for any additional information.
