  1. Thread-in/frost plug heater 856

    my 856 has a C1 block and it also has one threaded frost plug hole
  2. 6R 1200 planters - good, bad, ugly.

    probably because the 900 was paid for! lol
  3. Floor coatings

    When I finally get to build my dream shop I plan to polish the concrete, amazing appearance and doesn't burn up or wear off and isn't dusty like a raw concrete floor.
  4. Dow passed 24,000

    Um, no they weren't, the stock was bought back from the government for way less than what the government paid for it.
  5. local 5488

    I watched that auction too, just remember those tractors were ran hard and the 9270 had 9000 hours on a twelve speed trans. The 9370 was a good buy though.

    A second look on my PC it sure looks well taken care of, I will point out it has the rotary pump instead of the inline pump.
  7. local 5488

    Probably worth less than $30 but it appears to be real straight, only thing I don't like is that it's an early one so it probably won't have some of the updates. If you drive it and it's nice and tight pull the trigger.

    So if it doesn't effect me its okay? Nope, if it's wrong it's wrong.

    Why would anyone think that it is "fair" that you have to pay a higher percentage tax the more money you make? I started out in this world with nothing but my education and the drive to do better for myself. The harder I work the more money I make but then have to turn around and "give" more money to the government to "give" to people who are either lazy or made/make bad life decisions and do not have what I have. Just because I make more money does not mean that I have more money to prop up the rest of this country. The rich should not have to pay more percentage wise than the poor, that is just plain wrong! It comes down to people being jealous of the rich because they have more, guess what, if you want more get to work and you can have more!
  10. Fall Harvest 2017 Thread

    Last weekend working in corn stalks with my new to me MRX690 5 leg disc ripper. I put new 7 inch points on it and ran a little over 11 inches deep. I found a lot of hard ground down there even my pure sand spots it just shook the tractor and brought up chunks of hard pan. I was running in Medium 3rd gear, handled it real well, 4th gear was too much. you can see in this video I grab 4th gear and then run into my good ole red clay vein that runs across this farm.

    EZ-500 light bar, I swap the light bar and antennae between all of the tractors, the 5488 has EZ-Steer installed so when the light bar is in it I have auto steer. Here it is running a couple years ago.

    a 5488 is timed 23-25 degrees
  14. bolts vs studs

    A stud is only as strong as a stud. The threads won't pull out of the block, the stud will just stretch when taken past its yield point, then the maximum clamping force is lost. Think of a stud as a really strong spring, you torque them to get a certain amount of stretch which is like preloading the spring. As long as the force needed to hold the engine head in place is less than what the stud can maintain the engine head stays put.
  15. bolts vs studs

    Studs are stronger. A bolt undergoes elastic and rotational stresses while being installed making proper clamping forces harder to measure. A stud is only being stretched as the nut slides on the threads on the stud, plus the thread of the nut and stud are made to be identical, a bolt goes into a block that has tapped threads.

    so which head is better?

    Tony! Yes sir!

  19. Fall Harvest 2017 Thread

    Last round of the season, waiting for the pivot to move out of the way, was last Friday 11-24. Been chopping stalks since then. What a terribly muddy harvest this has been. We mudded the crop in then got to mud it out!
  20. 856 clutch wont disengage

    Probably the IPTO hub has rattled the rivets loose and locked the pressure plate up, will probably need a new pressure plate and problem solved.

    Do you have any pics of when making this pipe?
