  2. unisystem brake part

    a brake piston on my 802 power unit has corroded to the point that it is ruined and needs to be replaced. part 3708415. i think it likely was used on some other units also. any ideas on parts yards that might have one?
  3. unisystem brake part

    ask away, or, what is group address?
  4. My best run of the year

    the blast of wind from the tractor must have knocked the cameraman over. nice run!
  5. Edmund Fitzgerald Nov 10, 1975

    darryn, thanks for the reminder. gordon lightfoot's song will be my first song tonight. it really is sad, how close to land they were when they sank.
  6. i bet you could really trim some trees with that exhaust pipe. or vice versa.... its tall enough to keep the smoke away from the jolly green giant.
  7. cab identification

    this is the Hinson Royal Guardian cab on my 1456. somewhat similar to the pictured cab. it is supported only by the mount cantilevered off the rear axle (no front anchor). another unusual feature is the narrow horizontal window behind the seat, which is intended to make it easier to see the drawbar when hooking up. but mine has no words on the door. on closer look, the doors on mine have a hook over the fender before it gets to the hinge. so hinson is out.
  8. Happy birthday

    i met mike newman at the rpru in sedalia. interesting guy. happy birthday to all.
  9. Colonoscopy by Dave Barry

    hah! i just had mine from both ends last week. so timely! and, with a good report, see you in 10 years. i will say, the prep liquid tasted less awful than what i had 10 years ago, at the last one. end result, so to speak, was the same.
  10. Farmall C or Super C?

    funny, i don't remember our conversation as touching on Super C generator belts. also timely, since i have drained the water and sludge out of the SC transmission, but haven't refilled it yet. does it apply to an H transmission also? thanks.
  11. Farmall C or Super C?

    just found out about the gen belt length on a super C i'm working on. meant 2 trips to the parts store, instead of 1.
  12. Happy b/day rjpont,red tractor fever,red farmer

    happy birthday, all. quite a bunch lately.
  13. Farmall C or Super C?

    mmi is right, very early 1952, as 1952 serial #s start with 131157. if it had 5 numbers, it would be a C. all Super Cs have 6 digit serial #s.
  14. former fire truck? looks great.
  15. Happy Birthday Jesse in Wis

    happy birthday, jesse, and others.
  16. Remembering the farm crisis

    looking through 50+ years ago glasses.... learning and testing came easy to me all along. but by the time i was a senior and accepted at Cornell, i didn't care about school. except ag class and FFA. so its fair to say that those activities were a big part of getting me through high school. my jacket must have come from the same factory as Al's jacket- it doesn't fit me any more.
  17. Remembering the farm crisis

    from Oklahoma (City's?) Journal Record, about the FFA jacket: Its guidelines don’t mince words. The jacket is for members only. Current members, at that. The last time I wore my jacket was at the state FFA convention in 1982. My time was up. I hung it up and, having so much respect for the organization, wouldn’t dare wear it as a non (although former) member. Sure, occasionally you’ll see someone wearing it who was never was a member and doesn’t understand what it represents. Or, you’ll see a former member using it to make a statement. (John Mellencamp, himself a former FFA member from Indiana, wore it toward the end of his 1985 “Rain on the Scarecrow” video. Yes, it was a violation. But I admit, it made me proud.)
  18. Happy Birthday ny bill o

    thanks, everyone. so far, i celebrated today by having my teeth sharpened, and doing some work on the church parking lot. (methodist harvest dinner is saturday evening, including fresh frozen sweet corn from us.) i won't have my birthday dinner until tomorrow, when DFA has a fall meeting at Brook's BBQ in Oneonta. (piggy backing a birthday meal onto an open house is a time honored tradition from back when Agway Petroleum used to have their member dinner right around the time when Linda's birthday happened.) no karaoke until friday and saturday nights. Bob, we are milking about 95 cows now (almost as many as we had when we sold the big herd almost 3 years ago); that will change as soon as i find a home for them and try retirement again. Tim, i missed RPRU this year too- we were so far behind on crops- but i did get to Half Century of Progress show.
  19. Happy Birthday Smoker and others

    how about that, jerry, you beat me to the next year again... several active members celebrating today. happy birthday to all!
  20. Pto generators

    be sure to put a double throw switch in to keep it safe, no matter what kind of generator you get. i have a 40/80 that is big enough to run the whole farm. usually use 100+horse tractor on it. double throw switch is on the other side of the plywood. before i got this one, we had a 25kw and could milk or run the milk tank compressor, but not both together.
  21. Birthdays

    happy birthday, Rollie.
  22. new red power

    great story! i agree Jeff is first class. I needed a Farmall emblem for my 1206, to replace the International emblem that was on it since i bought the tractor. I saw Jeff at HCOP and asked him to send me the best used emblem he had, and this showed up in the mail. pretty nice! Thanks, Jeff.
  23. plowing

    good memorial.
