  1. I figure it out. Flow control was turned wide open. Thanks
  2. Also I can't raise the applicator with the hyd motor engaged. Is this normal? Do I have my flow control set too high for the #1 outlet? It seems like the silver flow control knob only turns about a half turn in either direction.
  3. Yeah I'll check it with a heat gun tomorrow
  4. I'm using my 7120 on a 16 row fast side dress applicator. Hyd pump is running off #1 outlet with the return hose in the motor return port on the far right side that dumps back into the trans. How hot is too hot for the hyd oil? I can hold my hand on the hyd hoses for a few seconds but not very long it's too hot to hold. Is this normal? I have the flow turned down all the way I think? I have an early one with the silver knobs down by the tire, no in cab controls.
  5. Yes I realize it could all be just bad sensors but it seems odd. Seemed like as soon as we put new sensors on 2 and 11, a couple minutes later row 3 showed fail. Put a new sensor on row 3, a few minutes later rows 4 and 6 showed fail. Moved to a different field rows 4 and 7 showed fail. Hate to keep putting new sensors on if there is something else wrong. Switched sensors from row to row and it follows the sensor so one would assume the sensor is bad. Could a bad ground or bad wire somewhere be burning the sensors out? ill do some more checking if it ever stops raining.
  6. We got a 12 row 955 front fold planter this year. We have it on a 7120 magnum. Everything was working fine when we started planting then after about 5 acres rows 2 and 11 kept failing. Messed around and cleaned them, nothing. Put 2 new sensors on then that solved the problem. Another 5 acres then 2 more rows show fail. Put 2 new sensors on solved the problem. Then 2 more show fail. What's going on with this thing. Seemed to me when I was finishing before it rained that going one way across the field the rows would fail but going the other way they would not fail. If the population count is too low on a row it will fail it. The trouble rows are counting some, it's not a constant fail but still enough to drive a guy nuts. Then I moved fields and I can't remember off the top of my head but I think the trouble rows changed from rows 4 and 6 to 4 and 7.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. I do wear ear plugs while running it.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
