• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Jeff Ismail

A great big thank you!! Goes out to Jeff and the IH Parts America team.

This will be our 12th annual show and we're looking forward to another excellent event this year.

Our show is open to all everything IH, but the focus is on light line vehicles. Bring out your Scout, truck, tractor, semi truck, refrigerator, stationary engine....what ever you've got...regardless of the condition. We're not all polished show queens, there's a class for everyone.

Our show is located just 30 minutes north of wichita, ks. Lodging is in newton, ks; a short 9 mile drive. Camping and rv park is also nearby.

I hope that we get some relief from the heat on the weekend of the show!

I spoke to the hotel last week. The group rate rooms will be held until next Monday 8/8/11. Tell them you are with the "sunflower" group.

The group rate is $80 per night.

If you already have your room reserved, just tell them to apply the group rate when you check-in.

See you at the show!
