  1. I rebuilt all the wood parts of my cider press, painted up the metal parts, (IH red of course) we did 3 5 gallon pails of apples. Got 4 gallons of cider! Didn't plan very well, scrounging for containers 😂. I have 3 intermediate press blocks, and then the big one. I need to create a better stand, this was impromptu.

  3. So as the title implies, I picked up a 656 with a F-R shuttle shift today. Rare or not really? Should make a handy little loader tractor I've never seen one before but then I live under a rock so......... Went to see my friend George's widow to help her go through some ofh his things. She was wanting to simplify and I was trying to figure out a discreet way to get her a little money. She wanted to give stuff that meant something to him and me and take the rest to auction. I bought a little including the tractor. It was the first tractor he bought when he bought his ranch and he bought it back after the bank sold him out a couple springs ago. Sentimental value. "A little"? ****, after I got the pickup and trailer loaded, I looked like the Beverly hillbillies come to Nebraska 😄 I even got all the wild barn cats she could trap☺️ So anyway, neat find or meh, not so much?

  5. Army worms! Man I hope you keep them down there bitty. We had them a few years ago, but nothing like what it seems you have. I didn’t know we had them till I was backing the mower in one night and noticed it seemed to be wiggling….because it had about a half million worms on it. That looks like a good yield Pathfinder. We had a good day here. One day of sunshine…out of the three that they originally forecasted. Wore sweatshirts all day, 60 degrees.

  11. 2 things take the spirit right out of a guy, constant technical problems that prevent one from submitting a post after going to all the work of placing pictures and editing comments after a decades labour of love and then that body of work disappearing overnight Gary I’m hoping this returns and you can take this past 1000 pages and reconnect with friends made here

  12. We built a cider press in the ag shop when I was in high school. The teacher was pretty talented and he welded together a stainless cutter for the radial arm saw. It had a stainless chute and would grind apples as fast as two people could drop them in. We just used a hydraulic jack to push a plate down for the press. A tarp was suspended from the stake pockets of a pickup box and the tree was shaken to gather apples. We had it down to a science and sold quite a few gallons of cider and no lawsuits for food poisoning. I did some experimenting and came up with some pretty good hard cider too.

  15. I picked this up at HCOP also. Had never seen anything like it. I know there was a thread a while back about radio installation in an 86 series. This is dated 6-80 so it would be in that timeframe. If you need to know how a CB radio should be installed in your 1086, just let me know 😊 (it has pictures so I can understand it 😉)

  16. Finally found what I was looking for. It will need a little bit TLC before next spring, but it is overall good shape.

  21. They pump it in the valve stem and they drill a hole opposite side of the tire . Then they put a nail in the hole once filled until it dries

  22. I foam filled my tires. It cost as much as the tire, but I was spending that much fixing flats anyhow. They ride like steel tires. for years dad would use cheap tires, but I found Bobcat brand last much longer. If you’re gonna get it filled, use a good tire.

  23. I agree with the other guys in that if for no other reason it's neat cause it meant something to your buddy. To me the shuttle would be pretty cool. Did they hold up well? Do you have to come to a complete stop to use it? I assume so?

  24. Recapped tires on a skid loader just sounds like trouble. Too much twisting and turning

  28. Was a TD-25E with the International Hough badging. Had a long wedge on the rear for splitting tree stumps. I thought it was so cool of someone to bring these big machines. The PayLine machines don't get much recognition compared to the AG and trucks, and stuff this big has to be expensive and time consuming to bring to the shows. Supposedly the old timer sitting down under the tent bought the TD-25B new. He was nice enough to allow me to sit in the seat of this beast!

  31. I thought I'd seen all the different cabs that might be on an old IH, but I was wrong. I found an 806 on a consignment auction with a Westrum cab. There were backwards doors before the 86s. It's pretty rickety you can see it rock back and forth when you let the clutch out, will come off right away. On one pic of the cab you can see porcelain insulators and wire across the back of the cab, can't figure that out. The tractor seems to run well, has the R&D pump, hopefully just clean it up and put it to work, I guess the shift linkage is pretty sloppy, probably try to tighten that up. Got another one with a bad engine for parts, it will be donor read end for an 856.

  32. We had two sets of claw daddy solid tires . We experienced much more axle and bearing failures during that time. They are narrower than air tires and sink to China especially when turning. They do make good rototillers though. We have one set of foamed caterpillar branded tires that came on one of the ones we have now . We put them on the shop skid loader and only use that one for known bad things like cleaning up the burn pile etc

  33. X2 I have never seen a shuttle shift tractor. The 500c or T340 dozer the neighbors uncle had might be a shuttle I don't remember ? @taylor1566 do you remember?

  34. We never had any recaps fail only casing problems. Close to double the life of recap compared to a virgin tire . Tread is harder

  35. Id agree. Im done with any recaps. Ive never had them on skid loaders but have on trucks. They are nothing but trouble.

  36. Seems like a old square baler plunger would work to repurpose as a cider press

  37. The part number is 668957R11. The frame is about half the value of the baler on a good auction day. The knotter stack comes out of the trip clutch. You have to disconnect the shaft that drops down to the needle yoke, unbolt the knotter frames, unbolt the packer relief anchor support from the outer knotter shaft bearing support, then you should be able to grab it by the bearing support & pull it toward you. That should get the assembly off. As you take everything off, make sure everything stays in order. That's a lot of parts & a lot of shim washers tucked in there. When you get the offending frame off, you have to gut it. The only thing the frame comes with is a bushing. I recommend welding the piece back on. Have one welded on mine in the exact same spot yours broke. Works fine. Though I didn't weld it so that's why it holds Lol! There are four salvage machines listed on Tractorhouse. Every once & a while a used or NOS complete assembly will float across eBay. Be sure to get the knotter service manual. I know I'm forgetting a couple steps & it takes a little monkeying with the trip dog to get it to line up in the clutch upon reassembly. Been a few years since I had mine apart.... like 50 times. >:v( Should you need the manual right away, go to the CaseIH technical publications store. You can buy it & download as a .pdf it all in one fell swoop. Mike

  41. "There must be something to screwing insulators on to your tractor cab? Any one?" The tractor cab pictured has wire strung on the insulators. Perhaps when parked in shed or barn an electric fence controller was connected to the wires on the cab to shock cats or raccoons when they tried climbing the cab sides to get on top of the cab to take a dump. HaHa!!
