I hate to tell you but Bill passed away last year. Here's a link to his obituary.

I never met Bill in person, but spoke to him on the phone a few times and he gave me a lot of good advice and always had vintage Case parts I needed. From what he told me, he had an amazing vintage Case parts collection and was always willing to share with me when he could help. I deeply regret never making the trip to visit him in Kentucky when he invited me. I heard that he died of a sudden heart attack. Very sad. RIP Bill Hammons. ::teary_eyes::
