This Is Their Story
Dealer Nate Girbach came in from Milan, MI pulling a trailer with his 1958 John Deere 320. Nate has been a dealer with Steiner Tractor Parts since 2004. When asked how many tractors he has restored he replied "too many to remember". Nate has an agricultural background as a 4th generation farmer, Great-grandfather Andrew, Grandfather Ernest and father Gary all farmed before him. Nate currently works a 50 head dairy farm along with 1500 acres of cash crop. It seems tractors are a big part of his personal life as well. He met his girlfriend Sarah when she lived on the section North of his family, they both enjoyed tractor pulls and according to Nate "she had a tractor but I had the trailer". They are pictured here by Nate’s John Deere but he tells us Sarah is an Allis Chalmers girl.
Father and son, Chet and Chad Terry brought in 4 Case tractors; 1961 model 630, 1966 model 530, 1968 model 430, and a very rare 1964 model 431. According to Chad they didn’t know the find they had with the ‘431’ they bought it in 2005 with a blown motor and had to rebuild it not knowing that it was a very rare demonstrator model, and a first year diesel sent only for display at dealers. The family farms 40 acres and attend around eight shows a year within Michigan with their Case tractors.
Geoff Parmenter fell into tractors strictly by necessity. Geoff purchased a home in North Branch Michigan on 3.4-acres and armed with only a push mower he decided to buy a tractor for mowing and other work around the property. Geoff chose a Ford because he said he has always been partial to Fords because to him they scream tractor. Geoff purchased his 1955 Ford model 860 in 2001 as the 3rd owner. He restored the tractor with his brother-in-law over the course of 2 years.
R.G. Whitford of Perrington brought his International McCormick to the show and says he has been restoring tractors for nearly 30 years and is hoping to pass his love of tractors on to his grandsons pictured with him; Trent 2, Blake 1, Brennan 10 months, and Landon 7 months. Whitford says "I am an International man, I love them". R.G. has retired from farming and has passed it on to his youngest with hopes it will remain a family tradition.
Dan Sager of Napoleon and Tony Moore from Grass Lake have been friends for 6 years and have been restoring tractors most of their lives. Both men are members of the Jackson Area Antique Tractor Club, and take their tractors to around 6 shows a year. The Farmall B they brought with them has been a work in progress for the last 3 years. Tony will be restoring a John Deere B in remembrance of his Grandpa.
Gene Kurney of Juddville brought his 1957 Farmall 450 to the show. The 450 was bought new by his father in 1958 and will be passed on to his first grandson Wyatt Rosser. According to Gene the tractor has around 3200 hours and the motor has never been touched. The only parts replaced have been the tires, seat and steering wheel. Gene has farmed his whole life and also owns a 1953 Super H that will be passed on to his son Justin.
How do I find out what year my International tractor is?
If the serial number tag is missing you can estimate the year by when the castings were made. The bigger castings such as transmission, rearend, clutch housings, rear wheel castings, front support casting, etc will have a raised letter barcode.
Example: 12-31-‘S’ = 1950 year Barcodes started with A = 1931, B = 1932 etc. in alphabetical order to Z = 1954 (The letter V was left out on purpose) 1955 then started with ‘A’ again thru 1958 = D after that many letters were dropped from the system making it difficult to verify the year.

New Colors For a New Look
The new colors give a fresh new look and everyone here at Steiner Tractor Parts is enjoying the lift. Most of the work was done during working hours and the Steiner staff and painters worked around each other.

How do I polarize a generator?
Before starting the engine, momentarily touch one end of a piece of wire to regulator terminal marked ‘arm’ or ‘gen’ and the other end to terminal marked ‘bat’. A spark will occur when wire is removed this is natural. DO NOT TOUCH ‘fld’ terminal, regulator will instantly be ruined!
How do I test a fuel gauge?
Simply hook positive test lead to one side and negative test lead to the other, if the gauge needle moves it is good. Sometimes if a fuel gauge isn’t working it can have a bad ground, you can run an extra ground wire from gauge to sending unit.
Practice Good Receiving Habits
Steiner Tractor Parts, Inc. is committed to providing top notch service as well as quality restoration tractor parts, but sometimes we need your help to provide the best, most efficient service. We know that the average customer does not receive packages regularly and freight shipments rarely if ever. We thought we’d share some best practices when receiving your shipment so if an issue occurs we can handle the problem efficiently.
- If possible check package for outside damage before driver leaves. If damaged make sure driver notes the damage.
- Check outside of box for the packing slip, note any back ordered items on the packing slip.
- Open package carefully. Do not put knife all the way in the box as you can slice decals, cut seat covers and gouge emblems.
- Remove items and check off on the packing slip.
- Open items like headlights, lenses and check that they haven’t cracked during transit.
- Make sure to check inside of each box for additional items like knobs and boots stuffed into battery boxes.
- Look at items that are sold as left and right and make sure you have both sides.
- If all is okay, file the packing slip with your other tractor related documents.
If there is any problem, damage, defect or missing or incorrect product shipped contact us right away by phone 1-800-234-3280 or email firstname.lastname@example.org The sooner we deal with any problem, the easier it will be.
LTL Freight Shipments
- Someone must be home to accept the shipment.
- The driver will present several documents. Do not sign before unloading.
- After you unload the shipment, look at what you’ve received. Are there any dents or signs of damage? Is the shrink wrap torn or partially removed? Are the pieces still securely banded?
- Now, look at the documents the driver gave you it should say somewhere on the document "Said to contain ____ pieces" or "____ Pieces" "STC _____ pcs". Make sure you have that number of pieces. The skid / pallet does not count as a piece.
- If all is in order and you have all pieces sign the document. If anything is out of the ordinary, damaged, possibly damaged or missing. Show the driver make a note on his document and sign. If possible, get him to sign also.
- Now, find the packing slip and proceed as above form step 2.
With your help we will be able to navigate through any issues that may arise with ease and you will be looking forward to another load of top quality restoration parts from Steiner Tractor Parts.
What weight oil should I use in my gas tractor engine?
If it has not been rebuilt recently use a straight 30 weight non-detergent, if it has been rebuilt recently you can use a detergent type oil.
How to Remove a Steering Wheel
How to pull a steering wheel off on some tractors with exposed steering wheel spokes. Take the nut off, soak the center hub (with penetrating oil) where the steering shaft goes thru. Tap the spoke of the steering wheel and if you are lucky it will start to loosen. If it doesn’t move you can use a torch (DO NOT — USE if it is close to your gas tank) heat the center hub up and tap the spoke of the steering wheel. On other applications with covered spoke steering wheels sometimes the center hub is threaded so you can use a steering wheel puller to remove the wheel. Otherwise you can hit the covered spokes with a hammer to break the outer covering and use a 3-jaw puller to pull the steering wheel. On tractors that have steering wheels held by a pin thru the hub use a punch to try to drive the pin out, if it won’t move you may have to drill the pin out, then tap the hub of the steering wheel to remove it.
How do I switch from positive to negative ground?
Reverse wires on coil, reverse amp gauge wires, reverse battery cables, and if you are still using a generator with regulator you will need to repolarize the regulator. If tractor is equipped with a fuel gauge you will have to reverse the wires on it.
How do I polarize a generator? Before starting the engine, momentarily touch one end of a piece of wire to regulator terminal marked 'arm' or 'gen' and the other end to terminal marked 'bat'. A spark will occur when wire is removed this is natural. DO NOT TOUCH 'fld' terminal, regulator will instantly be ruined.
