Ratchet Style Starter Drive Repair
We posted this video on our YouTube channel some time ago but we thought it was time to share it again. We still get comments from people about how this video helped them out when they accidentally spun out (opened) their starter drive. This video will show you how to get it back together and ready for your tractor.

Tractor Club Webinar A Success
Steiner Tractor Parts was excited to share some information about promoting and advertising tractor shows with a group of around 25 people on February 23, 2013. We presented Steiners program for tractor clubs, discussed various activities clubs could add to their show as well as effective marketing practices, including how to create a Facebook page and posting on a WordPress website. The video along with a pdf version of the slide show is available at SteinerTractor.com/tractor-club for other clubs to access and utilize.
People call from all over the world with ideas, questions and feedback about shows they run and attend and this presentation was designed to help grow awareness of what various clubs are doing. Those that attended came away with some actionable insights into activities and marketing for their own show, and we hope that this will not only get you excited with new ideas, but also let you know Steiners cares.
If you would like any more information about the information presented in this webinar, please feel free to email Elizabeth@steinertractor.com or call 1-800-234-3280.
Thank you to all who attended and especially to those who helped to make this presentation possible.

Tractor Story – 1957 Cockshutt 40
This is my 1957 Cockshutt 40. When I was about 5 I told my Grandpa that someday it would be mine. Back in the day it had a corn picker on it, and at one point had combine tires on it for weight transfer pulling. Towards the end of its use a valve for propane was braised on it to run a corn dryer. I’m almost 16 and I’ve made some money, I’ve made a lot of progress in figuring out and understanding mechanics. My Grandpa said, do you want to work on the Cockshutt? I jumped on that. She’s a little rough, but by next fall I hope to have it back to show quality. It’s expensive, but its worth more than money to see my Grandpa smile.

Antique Tractor Crossing – View from the Air
We wanted to share this awesome video shot by David and Brenda of Outside Our Bubble . If you have not seen it yet you should take a moment to watch the antique tractors crossing the Mackinaw Bridge, and an overview of the 921 restored tractors parked for display. It is incredible what they shot with a remote controlled helicopter and camera.
5th Annual Antique Tractors Parade on Mackinac Bridge
Tomorrow will be the 5th Annual Antique Tractors Mackinac Bridge Crossing Parade. Hundred of antique tractors will drive across the bridge starting at 10:00 am in Mackinaw City and ending in St. Ignace. The parade started in 2007 with 614 tractors crossing the bridge. This year they already have well over 900 entrants signed up.
Steiner employee Deona Vorheis will be attending the 17th Annual Big Truck Show and Parade of Lights with her husband Rob who drives his semi in the parade. The truck show is held September 14-15th with the trucks crossing the bridge at dusk in the “Parade of Lights”.
Even though Deona does not own a tractor she has offered to take a few pictures. If anybody else would like to share their pictures of the tractor parade we would love to see them. You can submit them on our blog using the “Tractor Story Submission” tab or share them on our Facebook page.
Need dimensions or installation instructions on a part?
The print catalog is great. We are very proud of the work we’ve done on our catalog and we know that our customers love to have one in hand. However, space is limited in the catalog, but unlimited online. In many instances we’ve added additional measurements and dimensions to our website that aren’t found in the catalog. In addition, many times, we spell out the various tractors that a product fits whereas in the catalog, we have to abbreviate and list year ranges etc. So, if you find yourself wishing for more information on a part you are looking at in our catalog, we have a few recommendations.
- Search our site by part number – In most cases this will land you directly at the product detail page. If you are taken to the search results page, you may see information in other tabs, under Blogs or Social or General. Take a moment and look at those other tabs, sometimes we will have additional information or details on a part on our blog or in a helpful how to document.
- Once you are on the product detail page, make sure to read through all of the information. Check each of the tabs. On the Videos / PDFs tab there may be a link to some additional information or to a diagram. Sometimes the diagrams will contain more detailed measurement information (particularly true in the case of seat components and carburetor floats).
- If you still aren’t seeing the information that you need to determine if a tractor part will fit your machine, then send an email to our customer service department. We’ll see if we can get the appropriate measurements and then we’ll list them on our site to help out future customers.
