  1. Could it be that the motor never got worked hard and broke in after the rebuild? Usually they will use oil and slobber until you work them good and hard to seat the rings. The bush hog may not have given it enough of a workout.
  2. I put a new tach drive ( right angled piece that come out of the front cover) on my 1566 a few years ago and it's bad again. The little gears inside are all stripped out I guess I didn't put enough greas in it. Or maybe the new ones are made of cheap metal and don't last. Is there anywhere you can buy just the gears inside the tach drive or do I have to buy the whole thing.
  3. Yeah the 66 series cabs aren't terrible just loud inside. Good heat and ac. Mine weighs a little over 19,000lbs and is set at 175hp. It's pulls the nh3 bar alright but I wouldn't want any big hills. I may be upgrading to a 7120 Fwa soon. My neighbor has a cherry 2 owner that I'm going to look at today.
  4. I do wear ear plugs while running it.
  5. My grandpa was finishing up some spring plowing where we hauled manure over the winter. Tractor is a 7120 the plow is a 5 bottom 735 vari-width.
  6. Yesterday was the first day in the field for me here in northern IL. Pulling a 13 shank DMI applicator about 8" deep. Pulled it in low 2nd DD about 4-4.4mph and pyrometer was running 1000-1100 degrees.
  7. I don't have anymore pictures. This is just what was on my phone. Got a new phone this summer and don't take as many pictures as I should. Chuck wagon is a Deere 115 or 125 not sure what one is in the picture. We have a few of each. the 1086 is a 1980 I believe. It was sold new at my local dealer and still has the sticker on the hood. I think I am the 3rd owner of it. I am also the 3rd owner of the 1566, both have been local tractors their whole lives.
  8. This is in northern IL. The chisel plowing in the snow is some last minute custom work for a neighbor that I was working on this past weekend. The 1566 handles the 9 shank chisel really well but it was snowing like crazy and after 4" of snow it's hard to get traction.
  9. These were just some random pictures I had on my phone from this summer and fall. Everyone likes pictures ask all the questions you want.
