  11. I'm going today. If you would like to meet up, there will be a 1206 tractor that I helped restore there for a raffle project for the Luxemburg-Casco FFA Almuni. On the poster is a phone number, give me a call, we could meet there. It is going to be parked outside by one of the hangers, I'm not sure which one. One of the other alumni members was bringing it this morning for me because it had to be there earlier than I could be. Hope to see you there.
  12. got the same drill and it works good very handy. have no where near the use on mine as your nephew has.
  13. i madeone years ago with a flat bar 3/8 x 2. drilled center holes to fit where drum bolts on. the flat bar has to be the same length as drum diameter. drill a 3/8 hole in the end of flat bar that would line up with were the rubber seal on the seed drum touch the fire wall. next take 3/8 ready bolt about 2" longer than the depth of seed drum and bolt it to flat bar. set it so you have .010 from fire wall. use feeler gauge between ready bolt and fire wall as you turn keep checking the gap to make sure fire wall is true to gauge. if all is true make sure gasket is good and it should work . i put 2 900 planters together for our dealer an they didnt have one so i made one.
