• 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

RMIHR20 trip


Well after 3 years I finally made it back to rmihr. And it was as good as I remember it


Friday morning at 6:00 taking care of buisness


The only thing the duke couldnt pass. The damn gas stations


Finally made it up at 2:00 with body and engine specialist ellie


Few more here, was truly disappointed there wasnt a single loadstar, fridge, or tractor. Short of a cub cadet. So next year I'll be bringing my IH fridge, farmall m, and toterstar uber hauler as well as the duke





In this last picture you see an omaha orange Scout two, its a one owner which he bought from the kansas dealership. He was also my neighbor and proved to be a true gentelman who understood the IH way of life. I offered him the use of my camper and ammenities which he graciously accepted and used sparingly, and in response gave me some wild game of his own that he makes. He also proved to be a very intelligent and stimulating conversationalist. He also took second place in the stock class which was appropriate, his paint was well done and the restoration job was money well spent.
So while he May not be on this site I'd like to thank him and all my other neighbors for allowing me to ramble on about how much I love IH and fine cigars...and large guns that go boom


Also should be noted that I dont like to play follow the leader and I know salida well so to hell with the buddy system, I went to find my own skyline


On the way home my tranny and engine were getting damn hot

I had plans to rob a bank to pay for the trip but I got sidelined by orange julius and decided to let my stuff cool off instead


One more quick post. Special thank you to the vendors. Jeff I hope your leg heals quickly. However thank you for the things you donated for door prizes. I won some wonderful mud flaps and ellie won a set of shims. A big thanks to phil coonrod who is always stimulating if not slightly confusing.

And a very big thanks to bill hamilton for taking the time out to chat about fuel injection and making me feel like I have the brain of a drunk toddler.

Congrats to all the owners for making this a great return to rmihr.

Congrats to jetfxr and his wonderful lady for taking home many trophies. And again, thank you for not dropping a chubby small block in that wee beauty
