  1. Brillion Iron Works closes

    I know what he's trying to say. My point is who does the "common working man" as you put it work for?
  2. Husker Harvest Days, Grand Island Nebraska.

    The tribine blows trash out that little opening on the left side. I have a hard time understanding the point. Is this supposed to eliminate a grain cart? Stopping the combine to dump doesn't seem very efficient for a large operator who would want a machine that size.
  3. Brillion Iron Works closes

    So your saying that manufacturers and large farmers don't work??
  4. Went to a Local Cruise Night

    I had an '84 Monte Carlo SS in high school.. Had a 4:10 rear end and did really well in the 1/4 mile. I raced a kid in a neighboring town one night who had a Grand National. I had a 2 car length lead off the line. Next thing I know I hear the whistle of the turbo as a black streak passed me. I love those GN's.
  5. QA42A snowblower

    Would a Q42A snowblower that had been on a 782 work on a 682? I know it will fit and drive the same I'm just unsure about the lift Since 782 has hydraulic lift can it be made to work on 682? I haven't looked at it in person was hoping to get an answer before driving to do that. Thanks.
  6. Shed find old ihc

    Farmers aren't exempt from that either. I know some that could use this.
  7. Mysterious Nebraska Crop circle formation

    When Iowa and Nebraska play at the end of the year I don't know who to cheer for...I want them both to lose. Go Cyclones! 😀
  8. Gas Grills What is Good

    I like to use apple juice and Worcestershire sauce in a squirt bottle.
  9. Gas Grills What is Good

    These are great for smoking cheese.
  10. Gas Grills What is Good

    I have a Green Mountain but same concept as a Traeger. I have been very happy with it. Slightly slower to get up to temperature than a gas grill but not much. For a gas grill I would recommend a Wener Genisis. Have had the same one for at least 10 years with few problems. Finally had to replace the burners last winter.
  11. QA42A snowblower

    Any ideas where the lift assist assembly could be found? Also would that work with the 54" blade I have? Thanks again.
  12. OT: Tax payer money!

    What are foreign farmers doing to ruin our country?
  13. Plow bottom colors

    I am the 2nd owner of a 211 with original paint bought new with a 1960 340. This is an early one as the decal on the main beam says "IH Farmall" rather than "IH International". It has blue frogs as well as the yokes for the coulters. i believe it was this way until they eliminated the blue color. My Dad has a 60 with original paint that must be a late one as frogs, moldboards, and coulters are black.
  14. New idea pickers on a farmalls

    My Dad and Grandpa picked and shelled many acres of 36" row corn with a New Idea picker on a 560.
  15. Downfall of our society

    I don't disagree with most that's been said. Agree most spend way to much time on their phones. But I find it ironic that you say this on an Internet site that many look at on their phones.
  16. Neighbors/renters started planting today

    Agree thank you for the service. Where are you located? Just curious where Schell grows their barley. Whe I toured the Leinenkugel brewery in WI I thought the said a lot was grown in SD. I love Schell's Firebrick.
  17. Old sales literature

    There were many Big A's around here in the 80's. I'm thinking the local elevator's had Cat 3208's. I know they had Eaton transmissions, 9 speed I think.
  18. Cost of planting corn per acre

    Here in IA $600-$700 would give you a good idea. Varies greatly based on debt load and land cost.
  19. 312 / 412 Plow

    I don't have a picture of it. But with the manual lift there is an arm that bolts to the rock shaft for the fast hitch. Then a chain that goes from this to the lift arm on your plow. There is a piece of pipe over the chain to keep it from twisting and special washers you used to control the depth by moving on the links of the chain. I will try to get a picture or scan my parts book.
  20. Putting a hog ring in a large sow

    When I was a kid Dad always would ring the sows when we moved them back into the hog house before they farrowed. Dad moved them with a 3 point hog crate so they didn't have much room to move. He would catch them with a hog catcher as NE cowman describes. My job was to load the ringer and hand it to Dad when he was ready. I HATED that job as a young kid. Those sows were so loud.
  21. Benefits of Electronic Ignition

    I installed Pertronix electronic ignition and new coil on my 340 with 6 volt system. When I pushed the starter button it would not fire when the starter was turning the motor over. As soon as I took my finger off the starter button it would fire. Seemed to me like there wasn't enough voltage to operate the starter and the electronic ignition. What would cause this? I ended up putting the points and condenser back in.t
  22. Outdoor FM radio antennas

    I live in an area where I don't get great reception but I really struggle in my new metal building. I've looked at a couple outdoor mast type antenna to put on the roof. Just curious what others have used that work well. Right now I'm just using my Dewalt job site radio but I will probably need to get a stereo receiver that i can hook up the external antenna too. Thanks in advance.
  23. Outdoor FM radio antennas

    I have an iPod that I use but that wasn't my question. I want a way to bring in FM radio.
  24. Outdoor FM radio antennas

    The only problem with that is I get lousy cell reception in the shed also.
