  1. Going to slip down to the neighbor’s tonight an pay for our ‘24/’25 winter project, a 1566 that reportedly has a bad injection pump. 4900 hours, hasn’t ran in about 20 years (filters show 1995), Ansel cab, LOTS of weight in the rear end, aux front fuel tank, no water in the oil. Kind of a cat in a sack, but should be a fun project.

  2. I was on a mini vacation last week in Zumbro falls Mn and stopped Zumbrota Minnesota and come across this bridge, it’s in great shape, I’m glad they preservative it. Very cool to walk through and think about everything that that travel through it over the years.

  3. Had a good time at the show today in Seagertown. Got both the Farmall C and the Fordson into the parade . I had to run hard to get Fordson started and into the parade, last year because I wasn’t slow getting the C into position .C was first down the parade route. They were featured John Deere but the other makes we’re well represented also . linked in some photos for your edification and amusement. Didn’t take as many photos as movies .A lot to do and see. Take a few more tomorrow.

  4. Over the years, I have collected a Massey baler like Big Bud's video, a Case baler, and a NH Super 77 (that one minus the engine). As well as the Allis round baler. None get used for baling, but I suppose I could have a hay day some year.

  7. 560Dennis has a thread about the Pioneer Steam Show, and this was down the road a little bit on the same weekend. Both are in NW PA. Here are a few items I thought may be of interest for what I know. Mostly all early tractors.

  8. They couldn’t find bearings that would stand up to the heat and speed needed, never mind the corrosive environment it would endure…manure pumps would have a better chance of lasting

  13. ....Yes....OK....well, the Department of Conservation is empowered to take care of our environment......but I question them.....well the local area DOC personnel...I ask them to define the word ""Conservation'' this after 40 acres of bottom land flat has been washed out into the Tasman Sea...So..to cut to the chase...these over educated morons, who wouldn't know or have a practical bone in their body...finally acceded to allow further rock protection......which involves crossing the river..... Then we get a lecture on ground nesting ,birds that frequent the river.......so I tell them that we have a total non violence pact with any avian life.......and on it goes....Because one is old...and happens to be a ''digger driver''....those sort of ....as previously stated..'' over educated morons''...immediately make the assumption that the I am a total fuckwit....Maybe they are right...but I can fire right back at those sort of people...when one well knows they are pushing a social boundary, but feel insulated by their perceived status as a DOC ''officer '' Always fun dealing with various Councils / River Control Officers and other peasantry , masquerading as 'some body' of great and necessary importance.....

  14. Our local fuel injection shop is closing the doors after 50+ years of service. I have used them for parts & services for nearly 25 years that I have been in business. They approached me regarding purchasing it, after much thought and consideration we have made the decision to move forward with the purchase. I was able to purchase the complete operation, test stands, tools an all contracts with Bosch, Delphi an etc... exciting times ahead. The 2 employees have agreed to continue to work part time to help us get on our feet, alternating their days so we always have an experienced guy on tap. We will have to build unto our facility to handle this step, but in the end hope it will all work out..... (I should have put this under the support thread 🙂)

  18. Brother got the flywheel fixed up on Friday night. Heading down today to pick it up again. He ram into issues pressing that new bushing in as well too. Wrecked his new sleeve that he had pressed in so he had to do it over again. Second go around he machined a bevel on the outside edge of that hardened bushing. It was square cut and very sharp. Second go around it went in smoothly he said. Got the seal drive made on the lathe and finally got the rear main installed yesterday. Monkeyed around for quite a while trying to get the seal retainer centered as best as I could. With the thicker pan gasket they use now it was impossible to get it perfect. Got it to around .008-.0010” so it will have to do. I made some aluminum dowels to center it. Never went to this much trouble on our genset and it’s not leaking so hopefully this works as well. Speedy sleeve was a little hard to drive on but it’s sitting in where it should be now at least. I installed the seal and sleeve together.

  21. Take the filter off the tractor and wash it out with solvent -- nothing in there to replace -- just a roll of screen wire that need washed out periodically

  22. Been a while. Seems like I’m finding time to do everything except work on this project. Primer went on in early May. Completed the first finish coat today. I really like the way the CaseIH 2150 Iron Guard brushes on. It dries very quickly.

  23. Congratulations to the both of you. I have been with my girlfriend for 6 years now she told me that 6 years was the iron anniversary so I told her I got her a new cast iron LP manifold for her tractor as a gift I’m still waiting on mine

  24. I’ve always thought he understands rural America life. I don’t know how to put it on here but his song “Fly over States” proves that. This whole controversy that people are complaining about is stupid. I wish they could put all their complaining to good use

  25. What’s your story @TRAVELETTE? Do you own a heavy truck parts business? Work at one? Just have a large parts stock for your own use? You obviously have a lot of knowledge and a huge parts stock. I enjoy your posts. As a lowly farmer myself, I find it incredible the diversity of backgrounds and the knowledge on this forum.

  30. Round here bales hit the ground and were picked up. Most were hauled with a pickup. A few big time operators had bale lifts that attached to their bob trucks. One guy had a wagon on the back and had his girls stacking them as they baled. After the wagon was full they hit the ground until the girls got back from the barn and they hitched it back up to the wagon again. After they finished bailing and unloaded the wagon, he pulled the wagon while the girls loaded it. I don't ever remember seeing him load/stack hay. He was a driver. His wife and girls did all the milking too. His daughter Mary was famous as a hay hauler. She picked up two heavy bales at a time and threw them up at once. If the stacker wasn't looking she would aim for him. She knocked many a man off a load of hay! Them girls were good looking but stout! They were Lithuanian.

  33. Definitely the IH V8 series for me. Sad to say, I’ve called that engine in my 1468 a POS more than once. It’s absolutely amazing how that engine falls flat on its face when you slow down the throttle coming up to a headlands. I’ve asked myself numerous times how it’s even possible for that engine to stall so quickly. Anyone know where I can buy one again???!!! 😀

  34. Grandpa purchased this 1086 new. It is a 1978 delivered new March 14, 1979 according to the warranty card. Showing just under 4300 original hours and sitting on what I believe are the original 20.8x38 BFG’s. No IH duals available at the time but the dealership had these white DMI dual wheels. Has the 8 track player and a good working cigar lighter 😊. It originally had the soft rear end gears and was updated early in life. This was the only new tractor he ever bought and has never been out of the family. It isn’t perfect but is original and my favorite because of the family tie.

  36. Precisely, Matt Walsh did a thing about it yesterday. utter nonsense, there’s 50 songs this year in the rap/pop genre mostly, that are offensive and inappropriate, this one has good moral values and nothing more, the video shows criminals in recent incidents doing hideous crimes, draw whatever conclusions you will but I think the message is good, clear and exactly what country music should and has projected forever.

  41. And if it wasn’t broke enough already, add a loader to it and try lifting something too heavy. Apparently Belaruses had enough hydraulics to get the back end in the air. Jerk the hydraulic lever a few times like that and -crack- goes the bell housing and now we have two halves of one Belarus.

  43. I wasn't gonna say anything but I can't resist. The only parade I care to see a 2-cylinder JD in would end with them going across the scale at the local steel yard. And that's from the bottom of my heart
