  1. Got a good bit of our project done. Storm came up and chased us out of the field. We should be able to wrap it up some evening this week. 4 of us. 2 1066’s a 1466 and a 1206. Didnt get a pic of the 1206. The canopy tractor is my 1975 1066 pulling a 720 5-16’ s. The second nice looking tractor is a sharp looking original 1974 1066 pulling a 5-16 1450 deere plow owned by a friend. I was driving my 1466 ser 7103 on a 730 plow set on 5-18’s.

  2. For years I have maintained that I didn't want or need a disc mower and I was completely content with my sickle machines. Well this year we have had two hail storms that pummeled my 1st and 3rd cuttings both into the ground. I was only able to creep through alot of my first cutting and plugged a couple times- it was very frustrating. So I went ahead and found this like new DCX163 (same as NH 316) and my cutting time has nearly halved for alot of my fields. It sure doesn't cut light grass hay like a sickle and those fields are so rough I didn't pick up any cutting speed but I can really fly in my irrigated grass/alfalfa and grain hay. I don't think it conditions quite as well as my Hesston 1275 but it might be because I'm traveling so much faster. I would like to put a set of crushing rollers in to see if that improves it.

  3. The small town of Avoca located in the southern tier of NY had there 1st annual agfest to raise money for their town park. It was unusual because there was a tractor show on one end of the town and a car show on the other--with a tram running between them every 1 min. This worked out very well with the ag people enjoying country music in there area and the car show people enjoying there type of music. Some tractor pics first

  5. I’d like to have that with a steel box around the top and a case of old Milwaukee for when they come to get me for the nursing home. I’d want the muffler off that screaming detroit for more effect.

  6. They somehow followed me home from the tractor show, so I guess I'll find a spot on the wall for them. The battery cable sign I've seen before but not the tune up one.

  7. Instead of put some harvest pics, I would share with you an experience I did this past week end! I did about one hour and a half on a hot air balloon! I did it in the Champagne area, between Reims, Epernay and Chalons en Champagne. It was really nice to do, and grape harvest has started on some town! As you can see, there is plains (chalk soils, very clear, almost white), then grape vine, and on the top of the hill, it is the forest. This hill is called "la montagne de Reims", or in English the Reims mountain. A few numbers... 1 hectare worth between 1.5 and 2 millions of euros (the same in US$) when it is in the champagne protected area (to make wine of course). It is among the mosts expensives soils in France. In the plain, a farmer was harvesting potatoes. Enjoy the view in the sunrise!

  10. maroon 1967 Mustang fastback 289 4 speed, like my cousin bought new. He gave me a few rides home from college in it. Later, he rolled it and totaled it. If that is too low/cramped to get into, I could settle for a 1967 GTO. Actually, I reasoned that I would never have a '67 GTO, so I bought a '67 1206 to compensate.😄

  13. Update; Finally got the old girl running today. Somehow I got the pump timing off. A buddy of mine stopped at the farm, had him watch the exhaust while I cranked the engine. Little bit of smoke, not much. Set the crank back to 15 degrees, pulled the gear off the pump, it's out by like 45 degrees. How did that happen?? Reset it and tried again, not even any smoke. Spun it 360 degrees and it lit! Will finish putting it back together this week, really a good feeling to hear it run.

  14. Looks just like me when I personally drove the tractor into the leech field mowing even after the lady in charge told me that the tall vegetation covers the sink hole! Another one of our drivers got stuck in the same hole twice coming from different directions. I didn't realize I was back at the hole!

  16. Yeah I have found the middle setting with the locking pin is about right most of the time for me. But I'm cutting this hailed down 3rd as I type this so I've got it tilted all the way down to cut underneath everything.

  17. All you need to do is chase the lift line to the "T", cap it off, and run a hose to the tractor if you want a seperate tilt circuit. I only tilt mine a couple times per cutting when on the go so have never seperated the circuits. Working on trading my 7 season 316 for next year, has been good. 2 guards, 3 shock hubs, and knives been it since new. Its my 6th New Holland center pivot discbine since 1999 and my most liked due to quick change knives

  22. After putting some thought in it I kept falling back on a 79 Ford f-250, four wheel drive of course, four speed manual with a modest lift. Then I also remember that trucks really didn't get "refined" until the late 80s or early 90s so if I was looking for comfort and convenience I would go with that series gm, probably a three quarter ton with a manual. I already have my plow truck which is a 94 but its only a half ton with an automatic.

  25. Long post but very meaningful to me! Seven years ago I brought home this Lawnboy built International push mower that my Great Grandpa bought new. It’s a model 3323 built in 1973 and 1974, he would have bought it around then from the IH dealer about 30 miles from me. These IH version mowers are hard to find and this one has electric start because great grandpa was tired of pulling a rope as my great uncle tells me. The ones with electric start are very hard to come by. This mower was used on the farm through the 1979 mowing season as my great grandparents moved to town in early 1980 and the mower was parked in the hog shed. That’s when great uncle moved onto the farm. I brought it home during wheat harvest of 2015 and tried to work on it off and on up until last summer when I really started making progress on it. This June I found a Lawnboy parts mower at the scrap yard, I took off about every interchangeable part and kept it for my mower. Since it always sat inside the engine was good and it still had compression then I found it had spark. Having gone through the carb which was good, I then took the muffler off this summer and cleaned that and the exhaust ports. The muffler is under the deck. I put it all back together and it ran on its own power for the first time on July 17th, 2022, seven years to the day since I brought it home. I later had to work on the throttle so I took the flywheel off and adjusted the plate that rests on the governor. I was also very fortune to get some original literature on eBay and a NOS Lawnboy grass bag that I found locally at a parts store, it was in a back room with serval other NOS Lawnboy parts. This was a huge accomplishment to me in honor of my great grandpa who passed in ’86 and my goal was to get it running good before I went to college which I was able to do. I have always wanted something mechanical that one of my great grandfathers bought new and have it running and this is the only thing I have that was one of theirs. On the project side of the forum I’ll post some pics and comments going through the fix up. Here is the first picture I have of it when it was in the hog shed. It was also taken on July 17th. Notice a lot of the plastic top was still in tack. This was a few years ago with my other IH mower. It’s a 3331 I believe. Here is the parts machine, it was an 8237. I went up to the neighbors and he helped me get the muffler off mine. He had an IH screwdriver that he gave to me. Here is a pic of my IH fleet. I was really happy to get this grass bag! Here is a manual I found printed in December of 1973 and a brochure printed in January 1974.

  26. You think the Montana Ag society would have picked a certain 1066 looking shape, sorta like the one in their building.

  28. ...while we are indulging in this fantasy......on my first visit to the great USA, in 1972...I met a 1970 (I believe ) Thunderbird, with those sequencial flashing, rear indicator lights....starting from the middle...(of course !!)...and flashing across for about three feet ..then starting again !!!! Just the greatest...If I had a car like that, I would only drive it at night....and indicate all the while... And as one of your great vocalists Marc Cohen sings the ""Silver Thunderbird""....'''if there is a God in Heaven, he will have a Silver Thunderbird...."" That would be my pick ... Mike

  29. I was very close to a 79 F250 for mine also. I’ve owned 2. I purchased one with 14K original miles on it in 2009.

  30. Ryan , I always guessed you are north of the 401 around Guelph or Milton? that dirt looks pretty light esp when that 200 didn't struggle to pull a 3 bottom 8C plow. I thought the land was heavier up there and hard esp this year Anyhow that was a fantastic video and thanks for making and posting it! love it 😎

  33. Prayers from here. I read the article. It was probably good law enforcement didn't arrive to prevent the farmers from freeing the cows. A very bad situation occurred locally when an off duty state trooper stopped at a barn fire and intervened a out 2 years ago.

  35. We are very close and yet so far away 😃 Really anything pre "energy crisis" but if I had to choose one that could be a daily driver it would be a 70 Chevelle SS 454 LS6, 4sp. This car to me just oozes American Muscle. But like @iowaboy1965said, hard to pick just one. If I got a million dollar gift card to Barrett Jackson for my birthday (hint hint) I would go crazy trying to pick just one. But what a way to go😄

  41. I wonder if you could roll the tractor across a dusty dirt track and see the tread creep in the tracks it leaves. To my way of thinking it should leave clean marks going forward but elongated marks going backward, or maybe the other way around...
