  1. I didn't say it worked. That is what it was for. Personally I think it was more of a fund transfer device.

  2. The rivet thread and cold rivet the differential got me looking for old service manual. The 15/30 manual doesn’t have anything about the differential. But I found a milker handbook I never knew was there. It has the posters you would hang up to be a better cleaner milker. Thought it was neat .

  4. If people like Al Gore the inventor of about everything if you ask him, would live on as little as he wants us peons to live on I would find it easier to believe him. Which parts of science do I believe. The Shari was once rain forest. The Ohio river was the leading edge of the North American ice sheet. At last that is what the books said back when I was in school. How oh how did this change without the help of man. But if this is true how can we get so worried about current changes from what we wish to call normal. Only those with the permission of such as AOC will

  6. "never had a problem before" "don't need a safety rope, this will only take a minute" Not highjacking.... but add PTO's to this list as well. (I've see the result of what happens when someone gets hung up in a PTO shaft). At least in a grain bin you don't have to walk around picking up pieces. Just imagine an on farm IED. Nuff said. Reminds me of a T-shirt I saw years ago..... "It's not that life is short,.....dead is really long"

  7. I saw one of those milkers at a show three weeks ago. It was complete with a vacuum pump and it’s own engine, here’s a picture of it.

  8. I have not watched a show on CBS, ABC or NBC in many years. The last show I liked was the lawyer one with Denny Crane? I see the commercials and none look worth watching. When those three are finally gone, with their fake news, the world may just be a better place.

  10. If you can't bring the rivet to a hard surface, bring the hard surface to the rivet. In other words, use a second hammer to support the rivet while you peen it over. Or a chunk of steel. I'm sure in the factory they had a fixture and an air hammer setup, but obviously you're not going to do that for a one-off.

  11. Yes , when the powershift lever is in reverse and the pto is turned on the lube oil gets cut off from the powershift . It will seize up the powershift trans planetaries , lots of $ to repair , if powershift lever is left in reverse with pto turned on . An example of this is when a person backs up to an auger and forgets to put the powershift in 1st gear , can easily happen . I allways thought it was a stupid set up . I worked for an IH dealer at the time of the merger and went to Racine Wi to service school to learn the Case tractors , I asked one of the instructors how about in the wint

  13. I could see it working if the swth sits up well on the stubble and leaves room for the cutterbar to get under the swath. I tried it once with the 1010 header on the 1660. Did not go far before a small rock broke a guard so I gve up that idea I found some vintage paper today that I forgot I had. Nichols and Shepherd , Red River Special advertising from the 1920s.

  16. CX60 = IH heritage tractor with Perkins power, made in CaseIH plant in England JX65 = Fiat heritage, made in Turkey. Personally I'd pick the CX60.

  17. Look at the Fleetneck trailers from Diamond C, the entire trailer frame and hitch is cut from one piece of plate and then flanges are welded to the top and bottom to create an engineered I beam. On a 30' trailer the frame is supposed to be several hundred pounds lighter than a conventional I beam frame.

  18. Did some checking on progress. Glad I took pictures & put dates in the collage to see stages over the summer. New Pioneer app is interesting - take sample ears and it scans points to give yield estimate.

  19. Got this yesterday. Starts and runs nice. I knew the brakes didn't work. After some research, I tore into them. Found newer disks and all the shims installed. To get good freeplay, I have 4 shims in the right side and 1 in the left. Some ignition tuneup, clutch adjustment to help with shifting. I do wish it had the 3 point hitch instead of the fixed drawbar, but I still like it. A vast improvement over the 560 in every way.

  20. When I first saw this vid, I thought truck was simple throwing trash in the dumpster and didn`t know it had bears in it. Turns out, they were rescuing the cubs. You`d think they could have escaped the dumpster on their own but maybe not.

  21. That is how it was done in the dys before quick detach headers. We usually took the reel and knife off as it made it a lot easier working to install the pickup. I remember helping my dad change over from pickup to straight cut and back again on both the Massey Harris 60 and the little Case model A pull type.

  23. I`m going to stir the pot here guys. I think $90/hr is extreme for a fence guy. I understand it is not easy work as are many duties a farmer has to do but it isn`t rocket science. Now if a post driver is needed, that`s a $20K piece of equipment. Mader says he charges half that with minimal equipment. I`d be afraid to add up my investments in my little repair shop and the complexity of auto repair and I don`t charge near $90/hr. What am I missing here? The fact that nobody wants to fix fence? Just one person`s opinion but if I needed a fence and guy says

  25. I don't have a problem---I have a solution. My -42 TD-14 has been hard starting for the 16 years I've owned it. The starter must have millions of miles on it. It has withstood a lot of abuse, requiring only two springs through the years. Lately I found that the magneto condenser was leaking so I replaced it. I got the motor started & then it died. The spark to the plugs didn't look too lively, but neither does it on my -14A. I replaced the distributor cap & rotor---no help. Because I've never had a problem starting the -14A I decided to swap the complete magneto assembly. As I

  26. Years ago all the ring gears in rear axles were riveted. You heated rivets and had a forming punch with a hole in middle to set them.

  27. Bottom line is if your looking to buy an almost 50 year old tractor your taking a chance. I dont worry about the filters when buying. Lots of 86 series i look at the filters are about to rust out because they have been on there 30 yrs. Or in other cases a brand new shiny filter just replaced the old rusty one. Someone could of (like me) changed them yearly. My 766 and 756 dont have them, id like to add them however i DO use the addative in both of them. Other guys are take super good care of theyre tractors and are oblivious. Having the filter helps, but chances are good that tractors been ove

  31. Ouch! That is never a good look. Hope the beer helps. If it makes you feel better, I did battle with a good-sized nest today. I was working under a customer's deck running conduit for a new generator. I looked up and saw a nest about 3" in diameter full of wasps nearly above my head. Thankfully it was a bit chilly so they were sitting tight. Since I had to run the pipe directly under them and given the somewhat tight conditions, they needed to be gone quickly and completely. I decided that the best course of action was brake cleaner, ignited brake cleaner that is. I returned to the nest armed

  36. Is yours like the the following photo? My brother has 5 of those 54/74/84/32XX tractors and IIRC the 684 has the air filter like the photo below but I can't remember what holds the filter element in place. I believe it has the spring clip #11 to hold the filter cartridge in the canister,

  37. Wow! Cooking advice on Red Power Forum? I have thought that we have been all over the map with “Oil Threads” and other anomalies, but here is new and uncharted territory! On a serious note: Thank your daughter for her service thus far and congratulate her upon completing Basic Training!
