  1. Started a small repair

    I have owned this OS6 for 24 years. I have done very little to it over those years. Replaced intake manifold (all fuel), redid head, and new tires. It has run warm for a while, I pulled thermostat a few summers ago when I had a bunch to do but no time to do it right. Well radiator finally gave out. I purchased new radiator and thermostat. I had a couple of hours this morning to start repair. Pulled hood, front cone, radiator and thermostat housing. Here are a few pictures.
  2. Fall Harvest 2017 Thread

    Apple crop was down about 30% from last year. Quality was looking good, but about 6 weeks before harvest we had I bad hail storm, that sure didn’t help. I took a pic of the last load I hauled in for the season, which happened to be last truck for the day as well. The beans went quick, I got to ride the harvester fo the first time, I usually don’t help with beans or corn, but I helped them make a couple of moves that day. The field was small so I got to just ride for a while. Sorry no pictures. Corn has been good for the most part. Looks like that will be on hold for 3 to 4 days with the rain.
  3. wheres the transtar talk at?

    Nice
  4. Gimme a minute alone with her please

    I watched it and agree with 660 Driver, humanity has let me down once again. Wife and I have had to many conversation lately about the things happening around us. We are distressed by all the negative words and actions. We wonder if it has always been this way or is it the social media thing? Every time we look at our kids and grand kids it hurts to think about the ugliness they are growing up in. I know that there many good people and actions but we don’t hear enough about them. Not saying that is all we need to see, but a little balance would be nice
  5. Did a little hauling today

    SIL said they did about 200000 bussels of apples last year, but will be lighter this year. The 5 loads is 3200 bussels. Tim runs the tractor trailer, takes 1040 bushels on a load. He got in 3 loads, would have gotten more, but had some truck issues he had to straighten out.
  6. Did a little hauling today

    Yes, crispin and Jonigold. Should finsh up crispins tomorrow. Should start Ida Reds Monday. I just help out my SIL on Friday and saturdays. Pickers were getting ahead of Tim this week, pickers are in dwarf trees and really pick a bunch of apples in a short time.

  9. Help!!!!! Farmall H not running well. Cant figure it out.

    My OS 6 would run like crap when hot. It had a crack in the manifold that would open up once it got hot. That H also has an all fuel manifold, like I had. Mine was cracked on the back side, so it had to come off to find it.
  10. OS 6 radiator

    Looked at Steiner, $599. Not sure the difference in price is worth it, for the little use it gets. There are cheeper ones, but Al, not sure I want to go there either. E bay has some around $300 it have not had good luck there either but may end up there anyway.
  11. OS 6 radiator

    Has anyone used "Tractor parts Restoration" Hopewell Ma ? I need a new radiator, they have new ones for $429. Looked at a bunch of places, not the cheepest, mid range on price, but good discription.

    Do yo have to out the dis back to original position after it cools down to make it run decent? If you have to change it back then I don't thinks something is slipping.
  13. 5 is easier then one

    OT. Is KoO website up. I only get the last update as of 8/2/2016
  14. IH SW6-TA help

    We had a 51 or 52 OS6 which the gear on the cam shaft came loose. That is essential the same tractor as a W6. It had the mag drive pump as well. Dad didn't want to spend the money and welded it in place. That tractor ran that way for a long time after Dad sold it. Yes Dad told the buyer what he did. Fast forward 30 years and my nephew bought it, engine set up and block cracked, but welded cam still in it. He has it hanging on the wall.
  15. Pedal tractor parts.

    I found this place when looking for the value of a JD pedal tractor. Never used them, so I don't know if they are any good or not. http://www.greenfunstore.com/John-Deere-Toy-Parts.html I Got this for my grandson / future grand kids, yesterday. A co-worker had in basement, and wanted it gone. His step Daughter won it in a fireman's raffle ~ 20 years ago. She had no interest in it, and left it. Co-worker is cleaning out getting ready to retire and knew that I might be interested, so he offered it to me. We both looked for values and the range was all over the place. Picked up for $175. According to Marty, no one has ever sat in the seat, and the wheels saw the ground for the first time when he took the pictures.
