  3. You are experiencing drought almost like Dale and you need all the hay you can get. So you are going to hay road ditches but don't want to use your newer windrower because of past experience with rocks. You go to your next door cousin's and pull this gem of a swather from the fence row. Its an early 70s NH 910. It is fully functional and was last used a little over 10 years ago. Filter on the engine says 07'. So far have checked oil in all the gear boxes, need to replace some sections and then give her ****. The reason I wanted to use this is because they took the crimper off long time ago so there is just a big opening in the middle of the header. If I encounter any rocks they won't damage too much as oppose to a JD Moco.

  6. The 560 was quite a tractor in its day. Many 560's plowed thousands of acres back in the day. They are still relatively easy to find on many farms today. I had my turn with a 560 diesel for a few years. Mine even had the dealer install IH turbo. I never farmed with mine, only did tractor pulling with it. Sold it several years ago and as it turns out it is in the possession of a fellow forum member now after it was lost for a while. Here are a couple pictures from years ago when I pulled it. Also a picture of a nice restored one. Let's see some more y'all.

  8. Its a 650. I believe it hails from the Nashville IL area. At one point there was some more explanation on it here. I think it belongs to the family of @TheIHMan if I remember correctly. Maybe he can fill in the details and correct me where I was wrong ?

  10. ......The hurricane "Gita"" carnage of two years ago, when a tiny little side creek at home rampaged down with Forestry detritus and removed our then new, sheep yards....and generally made a heck of a mess, removing other new fences ..filled the big shed up with mud etc etc....created a need for new yards and another small shed...for shearing the sheep...and , more importantly, housing IH tractors.....a sample of which can be seen in the pictures .(..mainly parts tractors.....) So had a pleasant drive, today, Sunday, on the old D6B....levelling out the site..... ...also 2 pics from that mess couple years gone Mike

  12. This one? It belongs to the Bodines from Alabama. They always have a nice display and are a very classy crew. I think Randy gets on here some and may see this to add more. The picture boards around that tractor were of their family and farming through the generations.

  18. Peak rpms was 5250, data logger rpms for turbo was just over 120,000 rpms. According to engine builder, the fins get so hot at the high rpms that aluminum loose all strength. Got luck and cross over pipe caught all the junk nothing went into the engine. Thanks for asking. I am willing to share some of the information, so that more people enjoy pulling.

  19. I saw this in the back corner of the NH dealership grown over in the weeds and decided to rescue it. It's got some weight reduction going on and the chain is broken in a few places but the price was right. I could have carried it on to the scrap yard and probably made money. But, I'll fix on it a little bit and see where it goes from there.

  23. Tony in Your Pictures you Have a 50W Baler Pictured, with an Electric motor. What I found was Interesting was the "Blue Dolly Wheel" under the front of the Baler. That Rare Wheel assembly was available for 55T or W Balers with an Engine Mounted on the Baler. A Farmer could Pull a 55T Baler with a Farmall "C" and not have the Drawbar weight of a Heavy Baler. Our Dolly Wheel is still on our Farm, Baler was sold 60 years ago. Nice Pictures Tony!! Thanks!! Jim Droscha

  26. The fiscal operating debt is not the number that everyone should be worried about, although it is a staggering number. The unfunded liabilities are what is going to cause major problems. It will take the entire federal budget to service this debt if we continue on this path. Unfunded liabilities depending on who you ask is $100 trillion give or take. There are already too many people in the cart and not enough people pushing the cart as it is. It is also not the Prince of Fools who is the problem, it’s the fools who made him their prince.

  27. No no, a lot of good has come out of this…… 1. Rick is happy 2. The new owner is happy with a free M and new tires 3. We should be grateful here on the forum because another Farmall is in loving arms 4. If tractors could talk I’m sure this M is overjoyed

  31. Great day! The M is gone! I gave it to a local guy who bought new tires for it. I help him put the tire on just to get that eyesore out of here! We found a crack in one hub and one rim was bad. He dumped way more money into that ugly thing than I would have! Bout 1200 for the tires and tubes plus another 200 for a good used rim. Someone gave him the hub. He drove it home. Rick

  34. 2001 ram 2500 cummins nv45000 retired it at 410,000 original nv4500. Beat like a red headed step child... (Replaced with a 5500 If that tells how how it got worked) but I ran royal purple the last 150,000. At 400,000 the syncros in third were worn. But clutch you need to get a southbend clutch and thank me later... They will have the bigger input clutch parts...

  36. You have to use synthetic oil in them or it will burn the synchro fibers up. You can smell a trans with gear lube in it when you pull them hard. A Chevy used the same transmission with different input and a balancer on output drive. Chevy didn’t have enough power to loosen 5th gear. Again whatever you do synthetic gear oil is a must.

  37. Problem wasn't the fifth gear nut. It was the shaft under fifth gear was only splined for half the length of the gear allowing it to rock back and forth slightly causing the nut to back off. And as @Gearclash said towing heavy in 5th magnified the problem. I tried the set screw nut (worth about 5K miles) then tack welding the nut (worth @15k miles) before failure again. Finally bought a fully splined main shaft which cured the problem. About 200K with no failure so far. I use Castrol synthetic.
