  1. Went on a road trip today with a friend to pick up a snow blower that he bought on big Iron and the guy has this tractor sitting in the yard with the snow blower already hanging from the loader ready to go. Its a 1966 model that he said his Dad bought new, has 5,000 hours, he said the only thing ever done to it was a new clutch. I have never seen an original 806 that's this clean, not a drop of oil anywhere or even a damp spot, pictures don't do it justice but my phone camera isn't very good. Its even got an IH fast hitch hydraulic blade on it, never seen one of those before.

  2. I found this on youtube. Any time someone thinks this great country owes them something they should listen to this. I'm a history buff and did not know all of this. Some of it I did, but Paul Harvey goes into much more detail as only Paul Harvey could. This should have been one of his classic "Rest of the Story". Moderator, this is a history lesson not a political statement.

  3. My flags usually endure 6 months of weather before becoming tattered/torn/faded. I keep fresh new ones on hand to replace with. I noticed today mine is looking poorly again. I chose to leave it alone. It reflects my mood as it is. Maybe replace it another day. God bless our flags.

  5. Welcome to the forum. Sorry your first reply was from that arrogant blow hard. You can drill through the cast rock shaft cover if your are comfortable. The contour isn’t right but you can drill it. Grease on drill bit will catch chips. Or take the center link cover and modify it you can add zero pressure return if you want to run hyd motors also. now here is a trick a old time Ihc guy showed me. Take the funnel you are using. Find a piece of 1/4 copper tube or brake line will work. About 2 ft or 2 1/2 feet long. Bend it to look like a candy cane. Hang it inside your funnel over top edge

  6. My ladder thread seems to have more interest in the church building than the ladder, so I thought it would be fun to have a church thread, they are sometimes simple, sometimes elegant, sometimes unconventional, but every little town everywhere had or has one or more that is or was very important in the community. I will move some of my previous pictures over and add the ones i just took on my little tour of the bell tower. I apologize for the up close pictures with no perspective, it was quite cramped and hard to get back to take a picture. The church is of a King Post Truss design, and the f

  7. A guy walks into a bar and says "bartender I would like a glass of punch". The bartender said. " if that's your order you'll have to go to the end of the line" The patron scanned the bar and said "there is no punch line". Bada bing bada boom!!

  10. I had a vision that this thread was similar to my experience. Wife and I were cruising along on I-80 and the car ahead would speed up and then slow way down. This went on for several miles. Wife said pass him he acts like he is drunk. Just as we pulled along side another head pops into view.

  14. I got he 429 from one our forum members over in Michigan /Rusty Farmer . This motor came out of a 4100 tractor and had been sitting for years , the tractor had 4600 hrs on it . We got it home after the 1600 mile road trip . I rebuilt the injection pump , went through the injectors , adjusted the valves , changed the oil , hooked up a makeshift radiator , slipped my cut off TA housing on there and the oil girl cracked right off . 70 psi of oil psi after running about 30 min πŸ‘ Thanks again to Frank /Rusty Farmer β€˜The TD 20 will be back in the field operating this spring after saving it fro

  15. One of my customers dropped this off last week and said he had a new operator and first day the guy busted this bucket. He was pretty up set, said his machinic had just welded in a new base edge shanks and teeth into it After looking over the seen of the crime I looked at Jeff and said I hope you didn't get after the operator to much , It was not he's fault. I then explained what happened was hydrogen cracking, the cause no or not enough pre heating . any one that has worked with steel has noticed when you heat steel water will come to the surface, the thicker the stee

  16. The 86 IH tractors transmission fill port was on the rear rockshaft housing. I've seen guys drill the cast housing and drive in a tube from an 86. Or switch out the rockshaft housing. It's not easy, and it's risky. Here's my suggestion: buy a dang funnel or one of those jugs with the spout out the bottom with a stopper you open with your thumb. 50,000 66 series tractors out there that guys use all the time and figured out how to fill it without making a mess.... at least only rarely making a mess. I could do it at 12/13. It's not worth the hassle.

  29. ...hardly an award winning picture.......but this is our little, local Anglican Church, in a very small place called "Ngatimoti ".....top of the South Island of NZ ..it is very old...by our NZ standards.. ..contrary to popular belief, we no longer wear grass skirts.......nor has that quaint custom of seizing a luckless 'man of the cloth'......tossing him into a large cast iron pot, and parboiling him for supper, gained much traction in latter years.........so without checking back, the little church would be around about 130 years old......

  30. The church I go to is around 120 years old. The bell tower blew over around 2010 . The bell didn't break. We weighed it and at the local summer fair we had a donation 50/50 guess the weight. My guess came in second place . It was around 1800 lbs . We put another steeple up and we found one that a guy who takes down buildings had . He donated it. I don't have any pictures but we are starting back up in person February. It was built in 1895

  36. I welded a ripper tooth bracket on the backside of a Case 9020? Excavator 15 years ago when we rented it. I pre heated it and used 12018 rod to attach it. Last I heard it was still attached to it and this was a rental machine

Pull seat, pull seat/shifter sheet metal, remove snap ring and couple linkages, work shifter handles off, clean stuff up and emery cloth shaft, put it back together, bushings are small, can push them in with a vise. CNH is expensive for them they a standard 7/8x1x1 oillite bushing. At least I think that the size

  42. Glad this is non political, otherwise we'd have to hear from the Lightning Bolt party being still bitter about the H Pattern Party taking over in the early 80s. I am thinking power wash might be forcing in debris/moisture and then the crud rusts and expands over time. I'd just dry clean everything then try PBlaster liberally once a day and keep moving shifter as you spray. If you see rusty liquid coming out then that's likely the cause. If that doesn't work...take it apart. IPTO linkage became sticky/binding on the 495. Pblaster solved it, no other times but time.

  45. Welded a 19' long 5" thick spade nose cutting edge on a Cat 994 loader bucket back in my welding days. A TON of preheating was involved lol, hours and hours. I believe I welded it at 400 degrees. Then I had to bore about 50 holes through it to bolt the wear plates to it (it was a quarry machine). Had to heat it local around each hole to anneal it enough to bore the holes through it. Got to weld on some real interesting things back when I worked at the construction dealer as a welder.
