  1. Farming after heart surgery??

    I normally don't post very often but I can weigh in on this topic. I turned 30 in February. February 8th I had aortic valve replacement which was my third open heart surgery. My first surgery was 12 years ago followed by my second surgery 10 years ago. I am plagued with heart issues ranging from leaking to hardening to rhythm issues. I have 4 wonderful kids and I am as active as anybody I know. I work full time at a grain elevator and farm on the side. My cardiologist wants my to be as active as I can and I have zero restrictions. I enjoy running and yesterday morning I ran 5.5 miles. With all of that being said it is what you make of it, don't over do it but keep working at it. Best of luck to you and I hope you have good recovery.
  2. 1066 hydro issue

    Ok that makes sense. Thank you
  3. 1066 hydro issue

    On my 1066 hydro it sounds like the tractor is under load all the time. When I cycle the hydraulic levers either way the engine gains rpm then when released goes back to laboring. This tractor came from factory with out a 3 point and I put one on it. Now that the 3 point is on when I lower the 3 point it is still under load and when I raise it there is a noticeable increase in rpm then when it raises all the way up and stops the tractor bogs down again. Any ideas where to start? Also the tractor is equipped with power beyond. Thanks,
  4. Finally figured it out

    This 1066 hydro came from factory with out a 3 point hitch. I bought it with water in the engine oil. The hydro only has 500 hours on a rebuild so that was the selling point. After much deliberation I decided to put a 3 point on it. The project went pretty good and I am just finishing up cleaning up and painting some of the smaller parts before I put them on.
  5. Finally figured it out

    I had one at the time I set up the account. It has been gone for a couple years. I redid the injection pump, injectors, complete wire harness, and several other things. It needed an overhaul and I didn't want to take that project on at the time so it went down the road. On a side note the 886 in the first picture is a German. It is the last ih tractor my grandpa bought new. He has been gone for 7 years now. The 886 has 3500 hours on it. He had it repainted 15 years ago because one of the doors started rusting. Needless to say the 8 won't be leaving.

    Is this 3rd arm an IH? If so what is it off of?

    So I have been along time lurker reading this forum daily. I have tried photobucket and other apps and wasn't happy with any of them. Well I finally figured out away to resize and post pictures from my phone. With that being said here are some random pictures.
