The old threshing machine has been parked in the barn for 40 years and many memories were made threshing with it when I was a kid.
I called my 85 year old dad to see if he could come out and show me where and how all the belts went, they had all been taken off the thresher when last used. Dad came out and we got all the belts in place and checked and greased everything. We started it up and lo and behold it all worked and ran like it had never been parked for all those years. I even ended up getting 3rd place in the parade.
