RE:Wallis Tractors
Tom:

You have a very keen eye to catch that!! When I was cleaning loose parts off the top of this tractor I picked this piece up and looked at it and thought it was a disc off a grain drill and almost left it there. I did not know what it could have possibly been for at the time but I figured it was with the tractor for a reason so I took it with me. It is snowing heavy here but I did run out and take a picture of the guard.

For those of you that don't know what we are talking about here, this is a guard that keeps dirt from going into the PTO belt pulley when in the field. If you ever drove a Wallis this is a very nice thing to have when in the field because the belt pulley runs all the time when driving the tractor and when the steel lugs toss a piece of dirt or dust into the belt pulley the pulley is not a bit bashfull at throwing the dirt right into your face. In dry conditions it is even worse as you are usually sweating so all the dust sticks to your face and you eventually look like your makeup is running... Not to mention your nose plugs up very rapidly and looks like you were in a coal mine...
