He might be. I tend to believe things that others would be more
it was a travel thread asking where to wash the rental car, and maybe he
was being sarcastic because generally there's no need to wash a rental
car, since they do it as soon as they get it back. So he might have
been saying, I don't just just wash it. I tune it and change the oil.
(This was one of Reagan's sly remarks. "No one ever washed a rental
car". Because everyone knows that the rental company washes it. But
people who rent for a couple months will wash their rental, despite what
I never wash mine and on of the cops doing a breath
test did smirk and say it was the dirtiest car in town.
I do lend it to anyone I know who asks and often
offer it too and almost all of them wash it before
they return it. Likely too ashamed to drive it dirty.

Dragged it in behind the 550 Oliver after backing it into the carwash
and hosing off as much as I could. Didn't make much difference when I
hit it with the "blue-tipped wrench" to get it apart and the rest
started to melt - - - - -
My first thought was oldie. Tractor Data says 550s were made all
the way to
1975. The last real Oliver was the 2255, last made in 1976. Olivers
that popular in central Nebraska. Deeres and IHCs were the most
popular. I want to
say Fords were next but I don't know for sure. There were some ACs
Combines were Deere, IHC, and Gleaners.
I worked for the cockshutt / white dealer at the time and we has a
used 550 as a yard tractor (along with an old Norseman and a JD with a
boom on it) Around here Cockshutt and JD were the big movers,
followed by Massey, case,IH and AC.Also a smattering of Ford.
Had a lot to do with who the dealers were.
Combine-wise White/cockshutt was number one with massey , gleaner, and
JD tagging along. Klaas started eating white's lunch when a good
dealer started pushing them locally as well.
Things soon changed when the local Massey dealer closed down,Case and
International joined, Ford got out of the buisiness becoming
NewHolland, and all kinds of other changes came in - liike masseys
being built in Japan, Kubota taking a big bite out of the small
tractor market, etc.

Became part of MM in 1951 and then White Farm Equipment in 1963 and
Agco in 1991
No Avery designed tractors were ever sold with the MM name to my
knowlege. The Avery tractors were all 40HP or less -.
I believe a few Avery tractors were sold in Canada by George White
and Sons (manufacturer of threshing equipment) of London Ontario - no
corporate relation to the later White Motors (both of which at one
time produced steam engines) and White Farm Equipment
We always called it <incorrectly a White Avery.
probably had the George White sticker - shown as a close-up
on some photos in the Avery web site.
It was late 1940s. 4 cyl gas. 3 speed.
My older brothers rigged a rear-mount cultivator from a chopped-up
old wheeled unit - to work from the center-hydraulics.
And a front-mount snow plow - made from an old galvanized
water heater tank - cut in half lenghtwise, then re-joined
end-to-end - again worked from the center hydraulics.
