  1. Early and late steering cylinders have the trunion bosses welded on at different spots. I think that started with the tapered pin in the black stripes. But the late cylinder would thread right into an early block style if someone replaced it with the wrong one. Then it won't steer all the way one way and hits the stop on the other side a ways before it runs out of travel if I remember right. Have also seen a late cylinder rod in an early cylinder barrel act similar as the steering pivot is not where it should be in relation to the piston.
  2. Most I've counted here I think was 73 tractors this summer. A significant number of tractors never make it to the website. They keep coming and going.
  3. https://www.proxibid.com/Martin-s-Auction-Service/TRACTORS-RELATED-ITEMS-FOR-RESTORATION-TRACTOR/event-catalog/232449 There is a lot more to get added to the listing yet. Sounds like nearly as many tractors as the spring sale and more parts I think. Spring sale made some room but in 3 weeks you could hardly tell there was a sale as it filled back up.
  4. I'm pretty sure 20.8x42s will fit under at least from reading somewhere but I'm not positive if they had to do anything else to fit them.
  5. I've pumped fuel with one, not sure I've done any hyd oil. I think the guy I borrowed it from used it for hyd oil though.
  6. I think it's 8 studs originally, the antenna wire, and ground wire at the antenna corner as well. Open the cab filter door and then you can reach in and unhook rear flashers and antenna and wire. But to just replace lights I would have been pretty confident if you slid it up off the studs you could prop in up and unhook and replace the lights without unhooking anything in the rear. The antenna/nut can be a real aggravation. Be a good practice to make sure the studs are in good shape/solid when reinstalled, as heavy as it seems when you pick it up Magnum roofs can become airborne somewhere around 55mph. Heck of a kite.
  7. I think from a light 460 through a heavy 1456, 1066 T post will fit. The small frame already has the wet bolster the same as the older series so nothing as far as the bolster should need changed. If you can find a post with hubs that would be the easiest, I know there are differences in some hub/bearing sizes as far as what fits and what won't but I don't know what they are. I think the 460 type or early/light posts used smaller bearings then were used on like a 706 post.
  8. I thought of that but wondered what kind of riot act he'd have gave to the guy. Wasn't there another guy that drilled a big hole in his Allis or some makes bellhousing? Tcm? I don't remember having any issues with his posts but I must have missed "the big one" that got him gone.
  9. Either your flywheel is wrong, your clutch disc is wrong, or your pressure plate is wrong. Any which way it is, the way you put it together is wrong. But you already knew that. Not sure why it was easier to take it apart 4 times and then diddle around with homemade spacers then take the flywheel off and have it made right. Only to have to split it again prematurely to remove the spacers... No time to do it right but plenty of time to do it again. I know for a fact FarmallDoctor has plenty of better things to do then argue with someone online who isn't going to fix it properly no matter what he or any other mechanic tells them. I've got flywheels back ground incorrectly, isn't a big deal just messes the timeline you plan on up. Hopefully it lasts despite the unnecessary complicated repair
  10. You're correct, FP/Federal Mogul. I think Jesse still has some of those kits in stock. I'd give him a call.
  11. 55 acre farm a couple miles away brought double that a week ago, 2.965 I think, 53,000 an ac or so. Preserved farm bought by neighbor. Good ground, has buildings but no livestock facilities etc. Then another one nearby brought 54,000 a couple days later.
  12. I have a couple friends from here that were out on their crew and know of a few others locally that went. I always thought I wanted to go but I like silage more then grain. Seems like less silage crews.
  13. The tower is taller but does the Super M have the same 3 bolt pattern that you could use it too?
  14. Only a few run floaters on trucks in this area. Too expensive to wear out for road travel especially in winter hauling cured feed, help tends to tear stuff up with extra traction, flat spot them etc. But most of the trucks in this area are not meant to run in the fields as there just aren't enough fields that are practical to run them in. Gets old running a truck that takes 50 rows to turn around in a field that's only 48 rows wide. Gain 10 minutes on the road in a day and lose 20 min at the blower or worse yet a bagger and in the field, along with not being able to see well or be handy to open up and throw off the rythym of cycle times with the rest of the tractors. Longer hauls we will use them and if we need them to run two crews we'll use them but there is little very handy about them in the field. I've spent a fair amount of time in a silage truck but am usually ready to get back to a cart. But a tractor and cart isn't a cheap investment either.
  15. Yes the splash over with the dump cart caught my eye too. But compared to the amount of feed in the pile it is probably a drop in the bucket and is the price to pay to not run the trucks in the field. Trucks are definitely not the ideal field unit around here. Trailers like that are somewhere between worthless and useless around here. Hardly any fields big enough to turn them in and can't get around and very little trench work. Not sure what took the guy you had 200 yards to switch trucks...that sounds like someone didn't know what they were doing. The switch on the go trick can work well with 3 good operators and the right equipment. Can't have a short cart on the other side of a tall one, hard without a spout cam or everyone on their headsets or radios, but does add up to a fair amount of time depending on what you're filling. We're switching every 15 ton. (10 with the old carts we had) so that's several dozen a day vs half that many with trailers. Till the chopper stops and cleans out and the next one pulls under it does add up... Switching on the go behind the chopper opening fields or splitting fields is where it really makes sense to do. Steady stream of feed coming out and little mess swinging over vs stopping and getting the loaded guys window plastered and starting and plastering the empty guys.
