  1. Thieves

    If using trail cameras, always put one on the camera you are using to catch them. Sometimes they see the cameras and take them, but not the other. Now you have them on camera actually stealing property.
  2. Hired Grain Haulers

    Well come this Saturday, she'll be my wife, but she already helps. Doesn't disk, or nothing big, but will move the truck, skiddy or other implement in the field for me to the other end. Bring a truck load of fertilizer, or do what I ask, as long as she is comfortable with it. Don't push, she'll warm up to it.
  3. 1937 Pontiac engine

    I have a 37 Pontiac with flat top inline engine. Shows potential for a resto project. I got it from previous owner who says it was just a little stuck, didn't take much to get it free. Long story short it has everything needed to run, minus compression. It is around 50-55 across the board. I'm thinking that the rings are just stuck and need some freeing up. Just want to make sure it at least will sputter. Going o take a chance and pour some Diesel down the cylinders to get the rings free. Do you guys have any other opinions?
  4. 1937 Pontiac engine

    Sweet guys, sorry I haven't seen the topic pop back up in the section. We ended up stumbling upon an engine. A guy who we got some cows from had one that he rebuilt in highschool. He is retired now, so it's been sitting... But still is very nice looking and all the ports are covered. Best part was, it was free.
  5. Wisdom of buying an Elwood axle to farm with?

    We have several with the Elwood on our 86 series. If they are set right, turning wise, they really aren't that bad. No you can't turn as sharp as a normal front, but hey, when you hit that we spot, a regular front end isn't going to help you much, if any. The other big advantage is just getting the power to the ground, I don't care what anyone says, with two wheel drive, you're spinning. I have brand new Agri bib tires on my 1066, pulling a 5x18 710 plow, you spin even in first high. The front end helps a lot in spinning and puts the power to the ground. Less fuel consumed, more money in your pocket.
  6. Great run today

    Who put it in the weeds? Also I'm sure everyone wants to know too, why is your gauge covered?
  7. Same rant, different day.....

    Biggest thing is that people need to say, "it's the past, get over it." This country was basically formed on a dream. Everyone felt as if they were being discriminated against and they simply picked up and moved. There are other places to be. Everyone will always get their feelings hurt no matter where you go, there is always that one person who is willing to offend or defend themselves over anything, I mean anything. These protesters are nothing more than a bunch of hoodlems that have their feelings hurt over the past. There were slaves in the Bible even. Fact of the matter is that isn't happened, is it happening to you? How? Where? Why? Is someone being mean to you? How where and why? Maybe if no one has anything nice to say about you, then there is someone else who needs to change, not society. Thank you for listening, I'm out.
  8. Rough Start / Misfire at high Idle

    Awesome glad you got it figured out. The cap should be vented. Maybe time to replace it?
  9. Funny noise in my new to me M-TA Thought is was an axle bearing, but...

    Wow, now that is neat.. I would definitely put them up on the shelf. How many people can say they have them?
  10. Can a D361 be made bigger?

    As far as I know they are different. But with some machine work and some time, I'm sure it could be done...
  11. IH 886 with German diesel

    As far as parts however, there are more German diesel in our wrecker yards than there are the 360 engines.
  12. IH 886 with German diesel

    We have one in our 886. It does what we ask of it, spreads manure, blows the silos full. It's nothing compared to our 766 with the 360 though. It seems as if it has more power and tourque. The 358 is good, no doubt, the 360 is just slightly better.
  13. Today`s misinterpretation

    Reminds me of a deal I seen on YouTube I think. Have to buy just three items any three to get the cashier to ask what you are up to. One guy got cake mix, a sympathy card, and rat bait lol.
  14. 3 Tri Stripe 86's in a row to be sold.

    Where is that?
  15. 686 engine swap

    Good deal. I had my starter custom built at a shop local here. It was a third of the cost as one from a.i.
  16. 686 engine swap

    Of course I forget the starter. The d301 is a whole different can of worms for part numbers and such. The 686/666 use the same parts however
  17. Rough Start / Misfire at high Idle

    Does it make any unusual sounds?
  18. D 360

    Could try to power lube or pressure feed it.
  19. 686 engine swap

    Literally just did the same swap. You are going to need flywheel, PTO drive in the bell housing, seals, front and rear plates, different oil pan (I think). Make sure if you are putting the wide front on, put the bolts in the frame under the front plate first. Also you will need the correct throttle linkage, fuel tank, and the fuel lines. It's all pretty straight forward. I just cut a larger hole in the hood for my exhaust. Turbo exhaust will be different story. You may need to find something for the fuel filters because the truck blocks don't have a spot for the fuel filters to mount. Run sfi clutch if you are pulling, no if or buts.
  20. 560 generator regulator

    My 560 will charge using the generator and regulator until I rev it up over half rpm. At this moment, the charging stops and will not restart until I repolarize the generator. Any way I can stop this? Adjustments?
  21. 560 generator regulator

    Nice to know. It does arc when the generator is running, sounds like I will have to cut it down. I will check my points on the regulator also. Thanks for the heads up on the generator coming loose. I did inspect it, as I had to replace the armature, but they all looked good.
  22. 560 generator regulator

    I am wanting to keep it original, so no alternator. Wires are a little beat up, the new harness is a thing to do. What is mica?
  23. 560 generator regulator

    Racine is a little far for me. My generator tests out good in every way I have looked at on the internet. I'm thinking the regulator because it won't start to charge unless I restart the charge .
  24. That guy was here

    That guy was here. You all know him. He comes around often. This morning went to get the chopper, he didn't tell me the alternator went out and killed the batteries. Then today, he plugged the fill pipe on the silo, twice. Then, sent the cam put on the pickup head for the chopper. To top it all off, the bearings went out after it was put back together because he forgot to get the new ones. When they went out, the new cam got all ground up because he was pushing it hard to beat the rain tomorrow. Looks like our hay will get a washing... Does he visit anyone else or just me? Just had to vent some... But I'm laughing about it all now.
  25. That guy was here

    Dang.. well he seems to get around more than I thought...
