  1. Get on ebay and buy a seed calibration tool But I have planted alfalfa with my drills first a 510 from 76 to 06 and then purchased the mistake of my life a Great Plains. I did not have the small seed attachment. I will look today and see if i still have the extra book that i had for mine. I will try and take a photo of my calibration tool and send it to you. I need to calibrate my Great Plains as something is bent on the adjustment and it is only putting on about half what it says. all i use is the big box and plant about 80 acres of alfalfa per year
  2. what did it pull? Does it have a turbo? Dad had a turbo on a 560 in the mid 60's and pulled a 2 row silage cutter with it and it would burn the glow plugs off every few days and we just pull started it of a morning and then not shut it off until evening. It was pulling 90 on the dyno at the dealers and later that fall he traded it for a 806.
  3. Sorry for your loss. It will be a timemark in your life. My dad left us 46 years ago come tomorrow afternoon after a short battle with a nenotoma cancer on his right shoulder. God be with you
  4. Last summer we had a spot show up on a firestone 18.4X42 and the local dealer said i would need a new tire eventually. I asked if we can send it off and get it vucanized and he brought out a loaner tire and mounted as we were between cuttings and it was on baler tractor but $200 later i had a tire with a section cooked in it and 80% of the tread so i am happy
  5. I put a set of michelin 18.4 X 42 tires on the rear of my CaseIh 7210 and have 4000 hours on it and granted it is my smaller magnum tractor and we just do mostly medium duty work with it but i honestly think those tires will last the life of the tractor even if they were put on when it was new. They wear like steel
  6. I was looking on line at Abilenemachineparts.com and i am going to look again but they have them for $20 each
  7. Heard at coffee shop that a fellow about 50 miles down the road was arrested by the Feds yesterday for sealing the top on rain gauges at weather sites for the no-rain insurance that is offered by some crop insurance agencies. Story goes that he was using silicone to seal them and they had been there as they have him on camera and they picked him up. sounds like a case of fraud to me. But who knows what they will actually do probably just slap his hands
  8. I quit using the expensive little clips to hold the windboards in and now just use zip ties. you can always tighten them up if needed plus a whole lot cheaper
  9. if you would look up nickel iron works.com and look at the centers on a darf rake that would really help. I have the masonite centers on my darf. No spillage or clumps with wheel centers
  10. I don't think the supports are as good as they used to be. About 8 years ago i put new ones on my 7110 and Saturday it took 2 of us to lift it and when we went to let it down it fell like a rock. I think probably china made stuff now
  11. is that the reason you are not moving and walking to work Runner?
  12. The reason the tractor is wandering around is it is looking for more work to do. What i told my S I L about his 1486
  13. Yep Art there was a hay grinder about 5 miles away i sold hay to in the mid 70's and he had 2 of them and purchased them at Rocky Ford John Deere dealer. Those "ranch hands" came out in about 74 and were not bad but too light. They were not bad for cold weather but we all made "farmhand stackers" out of a old truck with the rear end flipped over and the operator platform turned around and all the cab and sheet metal was most of the time removed and then a F10 stacker mounted on it. In this area most liked the cable style for the tilt for dumping fork loads (bunches) in the fork stacks
  14. Google Spencer Diesel and they are a ag diesel shop. I have a RD i plan to send to them to get rebuilt for my 63 806 that presently has a roosa on it.
  15. Boog i remember when IH brought out the 66 series and they had the red fever showing and said how the engines were computer or robot made and pistons and sleeves were not matches as pairs. They said they would use 2 to 4 quarts of oil in a long hard day and were built on that tolerance. I felt it was iH's sloopy tolerance Heck they did not even calibrate the temp gauges to work correctly. My 1066 used oil until it was overhauled with matched pistons and sleeves and it used very little then. But the TA was of 706 vintage Deere was making good operator cab inprovments and ih was saying that is good enough. I honestly feel that the 66 series was the beginning of IH failure. Lots of 66's sitting on Deere lots a few years later
