Or Montrebec, to be more specific. Didn't have any problems except almost got whacked by a guy on a bicycle who had to be doing close to 40. Never saw him coming. It was my fault as he had the light.
Canadian gasoline costs about 75 cents a liter which puts it in the range of about 2 American dollars per gallon. Not a bargain for sure. I didn't have to buy any because I bought some just before I went in and again soon after I came out. Of course it was the company vehicle and credit card but, since I'm a member of the co-op that I work for, I don't spend money unnecessarily. 'Tain't in my nature anyway.

Ah, oui!
I tell ya what, in Montreal, you might hear just about any language spoken.
Lots of Asians there for sure.
I liked the place. Never felt anything but safe. But it's still a city.

We'll be in the Adirondacks next week. I'm hoping to talk the Mrs. into a trip to Montreal. Did you go to any tractor salvage yards up there? We need lower links for a M.H. That was Massey Harris country wasn't it?

Another is Byer's Tractor Parts, Chrysler Ontario. Take any highway north to Massena NY. Cross there into Cornwall,Ont. Follow the map to Chrysler (about 18 miles).

Chrysler is about 80 west of Montreal.

Your right about masseys here. Don't pay more
than 700$ Can. running unless it has a working bucket and timing gear hydr pump. Same goes for the proprietary 3PH oif it has one.

Average price 300-500 in running order.

No, but I did visit a huge tractor boneyard back in the spring up there. It is in the tiny town of Joly which is off exit 278 of Route 20, not all that far from Quebec City. The proprietor is Yvon Cote. He speaks NO English. Trust me on this.
I took a mess of pictures of his boneyard. Here is one.
I also discovered another place in Quebec on that trip. This guy is a collector of many kinds of tractors, especially Massey Harris. His name is Reggie Richard and he does speak English. I took a bunch of pictures of his tractors, too. He is in St-Romain which is near Lac Megantic. Email me if you like and I can give you his phone #. (Leave out the .nospam).

that would be great-    Posted 08-06-2003 at 15:01:42       [Reply]  [No Email]
I'll ping you. Thanks-

Got your ping. This junkyard is only a small portion MH. There's lots of other stuff, too.
The guy near Lac Meganic with all the Massey Harrises is a collector, not a junkie.
I think you would have to go to Monsieur Cote's place and look for yourself because I'm not sure that he knows what he has there. It is arranged by "color" for the most part which is kind of helpful. I don't know if you can tell but the snow hadn't been melted too long before I got there.

Hey Les, glad you are back. Come on in and sit a spell, take your shoes off, get a cold drink and cool off. :)
