  2. The Forbes article basically says the CEO told the engineers he wanted them to think outside the box and do things his way. The engineers told him they had thought outside the box and what he wanted wouldn't work. The CEO pulled rank and told them to make it work. They couldn't- not for lack of trying, but because the CEO had been wrong from getgo. There went the whole shebang. It's one thing for someone like the first Henry Ford, who was a mechanical genius, to try to impose his will on the engineering department and another for a guy who spent his whole career managing people and money- in short, *not* an engineer- to do that. It is just amazing how often that happens in this world, though.

  3. had a rain here so gave me more time to check this thing out. got fuel system cleaned out and had to replace injection pump with one i had to rob off my other tractor. she fired up on her own power. runs pretty good. took it for a field ride and things appear ok. need to get some better rear tires on it and couple more sets of weights and get it field ready for fall work.

  4. Guys back in the 60's IH came out with this heavy weight for what they called the Calif. commercial operator my Dad bought one new in 63 and we baled with it till 1974when I bought my first 290 NH. Not many of these were sold , majority in the Madera , Dos polos, Los Banos areas North of me . Since I traded mine in, in 74I have never seen another until a RPF member Paul Atkins ,notified me of this last year. He saw us talking about it on RPF I was to pick it up last fall , but I had surgery , then the Northern fires kept us out. And till now snow & wet kept us out . it was in a pasture way back through goat trails and had to be craned on trailer . it was in Summerset Ca. Near Placerville towards Lake Tahoe or Reno Nv. its home now! I am very happy as I bought it sight unseen but for few pictures. its very straight , engine will need going through but I think I can have this thing running pretty easy. Wheels had to come off on trailer . The heavy side is an Airplane tire with 12 hole lugs . That was factory. Book says this thing weighs near 6000lbs With this unit , It gives me replicas of the two balers that I cut my eye teeth on 55w , I was in grade school and #71 three wire. I was a junior in high school . My Dad let me do some commercial baling for nieghbor's for my savings account being I was getting married in 1965 year after Gratuating HS. Lol. 63 bought baler , 64 graduate HS , 65 got married , 66 had first born Son , 1967 my Dad died unexpectedly , baler did its job till 1973 tony

  6. I don't think we got too far into our steering bolster. You should be able to remove the shaft and worm by removing the screw in plug on the front of the bolster and screwing the shaft out towards the front. You will have to remove the universal joint on the input side of the steering box. Hope this helps.

  9. I have had five 86 series tractors and one 4630 with the soundgard and I will not own another soundgaurd . Backing up I have to have the rear window open and I can see the drawbar, slight inconvenience. In the field the cab is so much nicer than the JD cab in my opinion it's not a comparison
