    i think I mistook your picture on FB as Billonthefarms and not apologies.
  3. Killing mold

    I found this stuff is good. Concrobium Mold Control
  4. A bit of trivia about metric/imperial threads. We have a pre war 1927 LANZ bulldog with all imperial threads and nut heads made in the factory in Mannheim Germany We also have a post war (after they rebuilt the bombed factory) LANZ in metric Now I drive a John Deer made in the same factory all in Imperial
  5. Texas

    Reports from have been that since Irma hit Florida, the spotlight has left Texas. They say communities like Rose City have had little to no relief other than small groups like and Cajun Navy/Army. They are asking where did all this donated money go? Rose City has about 1000 residents. I guess everybody forgot about Texas...
  6. Anyone else working on theirs?

    What kind of combine do you run
  7. Question for overseas folks on your metric sockets

    They are all thread pitches You can't work on much in Australia without both Imperial and Metric tools. Yes occasionally you come across Whitworth as well. They all use standard 1/2, 3/8 or 3/4 drives on sockets. We have to adapt to a lot of Euro/North American earth moving and farming gear here. I doubt most people even notice though. Tractors all have the doors on the wrong side. Gearlevers are on the wrong side etc. excavators all are left hand access as are big mine dump trucks. I spent years mining here. You have to drive dump trucks that are left hand drive on the left hand side of haul roads. That means that a truck that has next to no visibility to start with (Cat 793) is even worse! John Deere made in Europe is all metric, John Deere made in the US is imperial. You just know what's going to be what from where it was built.
  8. IH Tractors on Montana Farm

    I once worked on an M where a spacer was added under the cover to raise it up about 2 inches and the forks were extended the same amount.
  9. Killing mold

    I am no expert and do not claim to be one. I do know that the 'Black Mold' that everyone is scared of and the black mold that grows on wet drywall and in wet areas is not the same thing. This comes from a doctor. The black stuff growing on wet drywall is just mold. (but you'll never convince my wife of it). From what I understand, the true 'black mold' just laughs at Clorox. And from what I understand, true 'black mold' can kill you.
  10. Anyone else working on theirs?

    You're lucky you've got red tractors or we might not let you in our club!😂
  11. neat tractor, anybody no whos it is

    Oh no.......
  12. Question for overseas folks on your metric sockets

    And when you get to metric threads you find that they might have more options on a common diameter than the imperial ones. Chiefio has an interesting post on how the imperial measurements are based on fractions which I'll try and post tonight

  14. Today
  15. Question for overseas folks on your metric sockets

    1975 was the year the US was going to all metric. A few years before that the speed limit signs started being posted in both mph and kph. By 1980 or so most of those signs were gone. People just did not accept the change. All lot of manufacturing changed to metric about that time. Delco Remy changed the 10SI alternator to metric hardware about 1976. By 1982 when the 50xx tractors were released they were metric unless the parts, like the engine, were used on the older series tractors.
  16. Anyone else working on theirs?

    Gee Pete, didn't know you were such a BTO! That combine has more dollars worth of tires than I paid for my combine! I've been working on mine evenings for about 2 weeks checking augers bearings etc. Had the straw chopper off for some welding. I'd post a picture but it's the wrong color for this forum!
  17. Can a Bent Grain Auger be fixed?

    I was at the local tractor salvage a while back and told them I needed parts for a C Allis. The parts guy says" I thought you were young enough you wouldn't need that stuff."
  18. Killing mold

    One of the best things I've used before is an ozone emitter. I'm not sure about the technical details as to its ultimate effectiveness, but it made a definite difference.
  19. greenie weenie quadtrac question

    Anybody who was on the tractor / combine roll own / lease plan. Was told last year by their bankers to hold onto machine no more trading every year and no more extra operating to cover payments. All the big time neighbors are complaining about having to make payments and maintain 3 year old machines especially combines. A lot of these guys were running olde stuff until 10 years ago then started trading yearly.Last year everybody was looking to trade off lease or upside down equipment any place that would take it. A guy who is higher up at farm credit told us two years ago every borrower got same speech. They could help you if you owned equipment if you stayed on yearly trade go some place else. Most listened some didn't and have been to 2 other banks since then. That is why you see late model trades at any off color place. Then if they can get a loyal other color guy to trade their can be pretty good incentives the avg person doesn't know about. Makes we think we are lucky to be broke and have nothing but junk equipment to worry about. Was just talking to a guy that works at Steiger plant said welders are going back to 5 days a week were at 4 days with Friday off now production is picking up so need more workers.
  20. Air Conditioning for ICB Cab

    my friend has one with factory air, condensor and fans hang off the back of the cab like the 66 series, really cool to see an original set up, his is missing the compressor and mounts but all the cab stuff is there.
  21. OS 6 radiator

  22. greenie weenie quadtrac question

    I dont why that would be rick. Especially with all tge self ventilating engine blocks theyve been fighting in their bigger diesels.
  23. greenie weenie quadtrac question

    Say what you will but I just got back to town. Was through both the CIH and JD lots. No green on the CIH lot at all. 2 CIH quads and 3 Magnums on the JD lot. Kinda different than about 10 years ago when there was no red on the JD lots and lots of Green on the CIH lot. So, not trying to be argumentative or funny, but what's the difference? JD offering easier credit? Just former JD guys going back to JD? Be kinda interesting to know. Rick
