  1. 2188 unloading swing switch accident

    My neighbor bumped the unload switch on his combine while harvesting. He didn't know until he got a call from his son on the other combine... He fed alot of deer! Thx-Ace
  2. 18.4-38's vs 20.8-38's

    20.8x38 are taller and wider than the 18.4x38. Both the width and height add ground contact. The difference is substantial. I would run whatever is on the tractor before I replaced it. A neighbor has 18.4x38 duals on a 4630 with 20.8x38 on the inside. The duals don't touch when on hard ground but work in soft ground. IMHO a 1066/1086/5088 should pull fine with 18.4x38 duals but anything bigger should run 20.8x38. Thx-Ace

    I pay about $25/acre for pasture rent here in Arkansas. Crop land rents for 1/4 crop share (typical in the south). I do have a neighbor who pays 1/3. Thx-Ace
  4. I have not bought a dog, ever. I have a hard time getting rid of the ones that show up here. I love my dogs though. Probably too much (nothing wierd). We are looking for a Livestock guardian dog for our sheep. My daughter who volunteers at a shelter found a Great Pyrenees puppy we are adopting. I was hoping for a komonodor or anatolian but I think it is good to take a shelter dog. I HATE for dogs to be put down for no reason... I know it is necessary but I don't have to like it. Thx-Ace
  5. Building a Sentry Module

    Did you figure out what the integrated circuit is? At this point I believe it is completely analog. I heard it was a small computer but that was wrong. It looks all analog to me (even with the IC). Thx-Ace
  6. Retirement

    I hope one of my kids becomes interested in the farm in the future (they are in college so I figure I have 10 years or so and I am 50 now). If they want to take the farming life up I will transition it to them (slowly). I hope to help out alot but let them run everything. If they don't get interested, I will probably farm until I can't. It is in my blood so much I could not have a sell out while alive. I want to do some sailing, possibly sail around the world. Thx-Ace
  7. 4366 trans lube

    My 4366 has the transmission oil pumped through a filter and cooler (in front of the radiator) and back to the transmission. The oil pump and cooler are on the right side of the tractor. If you need more info I can get you a copy of the hyd and trans oil flow on these tractors from my service book. Thx-Ace
  8. 06 Thru 86 Series Engines

    I love the 1066 (with turbo) but the cat III three point hitch may not be the best for your cattle operation. The 986 has the cat II three point hitch and no turbo. I really boils down to the cab. If you want the cab the 86 or 88 is the way to go. The 66 is much simpler for an open station. Thx-Ace
  9. Spark plug Question

    When I am having problems with a gas or LP engine I check these items. They will often show you the problem. Compression, Timing and Vacuum. Good Luck! Thx-Ace
  10. 4366 trans lube

    I have considered adding a hyd temp guage to mine. Thx-Ace
  11. 1020 flex head question

    Thank you for the nice description and pics. Do you know how what the part numbers are for the cable? Thx-Ace
  12. Spark plug Question

    I run a slightly hotter plugs on LP engines than the plug recommended for gasoline. I tend to run champions but have good luck with all brands. I will run one set of plugs in my LP irrigation engine may through aug for my rice then run it some in the fall/winter for ducks. I replace them in the spring just because. Good Luck diagnosing your problem. Thx-Ace
  13. cab identification

    Excell made the custom cab for IH (I have a 1066 with one). They also made after-market cabs that are slightly different than the IH custom cab. I would guess that is what it is. Thx-Ace
  14. My sympathies. I am a mess when I loose my dogs. I got so upset I wrote a poem the last time I lost a dog (that is not something I do). I have three dogs I have had 10 to 14 years. I am trying to prepare myself but it will still kill me when I loose them. Thx-Ace
  15. 9 bolt cast centers

    I think the 1206 had 32 inch tires. I don't remember for sure but they were an odd size. Thx ace
