Right on Point Tachometer

Note, the replaced tachometer, both in the run and in the off position. It looks just as it should. Everything I’ve done was cosmetic. The tractor itself was mechanically sound and all the “pretty stuff” was purchased from Steiner’s. It looks good for a first time restoration job. My painter, who pushed me to get all the parts said it looked like a Steiner warehouse blew up and lit on it. Not to imply that I am in the same league as your usual restorers, but for me I think it looks great!

Thank you again for all the help from your customer service people.

20 Years of Service

Andrew Wilberding celebrated 20 years with Steiner Tractor Parts on June 15th, 2019. When Andrew started working for STP there were less than 10 employees working out of Dave and Sue Steiner’s basement in Grand Blanc, Michigan.

For the last 20 years Andrew has created our annual catalog, and all print work for Steiner Tractor Parts. In 2018 Andrew became the marketing department supervisor.

Congratulations on 20 years of amazing service, we look forward to many more.

Congratulations and Farewell

Last week was bitter sweet. We celebrated the 10 year anniversary of Travis Pierce in the shipping department. We also said goodbye to Shannon Weber in customer service.

It is always a blessing to celebrate our employees as they continue their years here at STP. And even though we are sad to see Shannon leave, we wish her the best in her new endeavors in Iowa.

Congratulations to Travis on 10 years of working hard in the shipping department at Steiner Tractor Parts!

Farewell to Shannon, we will miss you. Good luck in Iowa!

Life With All Our Tractors

I was born and raised here on a 280 acre farm in West Central Wisconsin. My Great Grandfather purchased the farm in 1897. My wife Kathy and I built our home on the Northeast corner of the farm in 1977. We had Case and IH tractors and equipment when I was growing up.

In 1970 I worked on the Loren Young farm and he had Olivers, 880, Super 88 and 77, all diesels. I fell in love with those Olivers and his daughter Kathy. We were married September 1, 1973. We have four children and seven granchildren. My son Scott and I are diesel mechanics by trade, we have a large shop were we work on our old tractors, six of which are sued for antique and farm pulling.

My grandson Xander pulled his Moline U for the first time in Fountain City. He took a 1st and 2nd in his classes. His dad Scott and I were very proud of him. He did a great job for only being 8 years old, but he has lots of hours of practice at home. We had three generations pulling that night.

We have purchased parts from Steiner Tractor Parts over the years. You have an excellent and friendly staff with reasonably priced parts. I also enjoy your catalog. Here are a few photos of some of our collection.

A Ford and A Farmall

1951 Ford 8N was my first project over the winter of 2017 and 2018. A friend had ask me for help reinforcing a lean-to. The Ford was parked underneath. I was only going to buy it to park outside as lawn art. Well guess what, I had to see why it wouldn’t turn over. One thing led to another and I was hooked. That’s how I caught the bug for restoring old tractors.

The Farmall 100, belongs to a local farmer. It was the first tractor his Dad bought when they started the farm, back in the 50’s. I did a partial restoration on it in return for a Farmall Super A.

Farmall M Restoration

This 1951 Farmall M tractor had sat unused for 10 years. Engine was stuck at first, we were able to free it up and get it running. Then we stripped the tractor down and repaired numerous problems. Repainted and reassembled.

Converted to 12 Volt system and put in all new fluids. Tractor had been converted to a 9-speed transmission and added power steering in the past.

Many improvements have been made thanks to Steiner tractor parts. Have driven it in parades and to local antique tractor shows.

1954 Ford Jubilee Restoration

I bought this 1954 Ford Jubilee 2 years ago and started buying parts for it. In July of 2018 I started to rebuild and paint it, once I started I just couldn’t stop myself. It is my first tractor restoration and it is very addictive. Now I am looking for the next project.
