  1. I want this for Christmas

    If everybody on the forum could pitch in and get me this Id really appreciate it..........ha
  2. This is mine and as of right now its the only tractor I own and its a 1970 MF 1130 that I bought back in 2011 for only $2200 so I couldn't just walk away and let it go for that kind of money and I'm probably gonna have me a open station 1066 my old neighbor owns and wants to sell so thatll be later on next year. I know most of you guys have numerous tractors on yalls farms so I was wondering which one you always jump on to use ya like the most
  3. Can you believe this and because there were only 9 of them made it makes it a piece of gold. This tractor is at Tomlinson Equipment in Marquette, Michigan. Prices of used tractors are getting so high its unbelieveable. The used market is way to high at this moment and seven or so years ago you could buy a good used 1066 for six to eight thousand and now that is nine to twelve thousand. That 1066 in my buddies barn that I want to buy he told me he would look on the internet and figure a price so I told him to forget me buying it but I said somewhere five and seventy five hundred is about as high as Im going so he didn't say no and this deal will happen next year sometime cause Im rebuilding my nest egg up for the moment and I told him it needs basically everything redone like tires, paint, seat, frontend, shift linkage, etc
  4. has those Alliance non radial back tires Ive been pricing myself for my MF 1130
  5. Dad passed away

    Sorry for your loss JD
  6. That is one bonafide red eye candy Farmall and it even comes with a DT466
  7. Its home is the CaseIH Racine Plant in Wisconsin or that is what it saids and wonder where the first Magnum is? Talk about a guarantee payday when ya want to get rid of it. This tractor looks like it don't go outside much and looks like it just came off the line this morning
  8. Leaving out the house this morning and I noticed a blackhole off to my side and looked over and kinda thought it was a oil spot but then I noticed it was a blackhole and stopped immediately and got out the truck and I be dang if I aint got about a four or five foot deep and about same size around sinkhole on the top of the gravel drive of our place so I kicked it out on the edges some and throwed a concrete block I had in the truck in case some idiot runs in it and called my girlfriends Dad and he is going to take the backhole and scratch it out and take some gravel off the drive and fill the void up. Our drive runs about 500ft long off the main road and its gravel and its been there probably forty or fifty years but it just seems Why Here, why not out in the field somewhere and believe you me Kentucky is full of sinkholes and we are about sixty or seventy miles from Mammouth Cave and sixty-five miles from Bowling Green where the sinkhole ate the Corvettes and this drive has been runover thousands up on thousands of times but O Well.
  9. Good times with good equipment

    I see you got the right size rubber matched up to that 686. They came from the factory with those skiny 15.5-38 on the back and skiny 7.50-16 on the front where most people would after their factory tires wore out would always go with 16.9-38s on back and some would put 95L on front or 11L
  10. The first picture is of the TRX184 or 3688 and its got the command controls or whatever in the steering wheel and powershift lever on right hand side where its suppose to be and the second pic is of a 5488 with the Magnum cab they almost introduced in 1981 and the third pic is the mid-size tractor design proposed in 1983 and the last is part of the third picture. Some interesting things were about to happen for Harvester but with the closure all this was a has been that should've been. That very last picture is of a design they were going with until they decided go with the 88 series design
  11. That's Danny Thomas of Pittsboro, North Carolina pourin the coal to the ole girl. Check out the perfect balance on the frontend, that's about all ya want on the end is about two or three inches above ground
  12. Found this the other day and the owner was running it on a silage blower and it was there for eleven hours and when it got dark this manifold would glow like it is
  13. I can remember seeing this picture in the Puller from about 1977 and he was pulling at the Indy Super Pull. About the only 56 series that could contend with the 66 series besides them boys from Ohio on a 856. Looks like he is in H3 and wonder if he was running two turbos Im sure he is but not really by the looks of that pipe going down into the side of the sheet metal the way it is looks like maybe one big turbo?
  14. A John Deere funny sticker

    Bet he wished he had a Binder that day
  15. Id love to see this little Ferguson with a V8 and turbo pull. It looks like it is really getting down the track from the picture and look at that molten manifold and flame coming outta that little package! I bet that tranny is sweating bullets and about to blow to pieces from all that energy going into it
