  1. Turbo it. M and W or spend a little more money and find a 1256 set up. Would make a nice difference.
  2. https://lancaster.craigslist.org/grd/d/saylorsburg-ih-row-front-mounted/7339392356.html Happened on this set on the local Craigslist but I see they are for like a 300-450. I'm not sure if they'd be adaptable to the newer tractors or not. Theyre not pretty looking but maybe they are somewhat sound I don't know.
  3. I always thought if I grew a bunch more tobacco and cultivated it I would find a front mount 4 row and make it a 2 row for my 544D NF Hydro. Comfortable, any speed to cultivate, easier to steer than a C I think with the cultivators on, still 4 cylinder. But I like working with no till tobacco and I don't cultivate or grow that much so whatever I do cultivate I use my Super C.
  4. I wouldn't want to be without ours. I really like it, nimble, peppy, just a nice handy tractor. That has something to do with the 310 in it and M&W on top of it. I would think differently about a gasser or 282 powered one I'm sure. Came from a family friend when he went to a home and had no need for a tractor any more. Of all the tractors he had while he was farming, the 706 is the one he chose to keep. Fast hitch, 2 remotes, 34 inch rubber, narrow front. I wouldn't like it as much with a wide front I don't think either. I use it a fair amount for tobacco, it pulls my transplanter and then I use it some to load wagons when we are harvesting.
  5. The I-1456 I worked on with a factory cab did not have the lights in the grill either. I think they look better without but I grew up in row crop country so that's what I'm used to.
  6. Yep for sure. About all there was in the first post was a hood and side panels. The rest makes a much more complete story. I'm glad it's being saved and it will look much better in yesterdays tractors classifieds when it is bolted back to its original rear end. But it is true like TP said the rarer it is the more scrutiny there will be. I'm glad some folks like the wheatlands because I wouldn't want to farm with them here. Wear out too fast and never seen the turn radius as any better, most worse. Wobbly down the road at least on our roads in here. I know they have their place. I know it is the missing piece to someone's collection but just because it's rare does not make it valuable to me personally. Will be nice to see it back in working order.
  7. Not yet. Though it might be pretty well till all the work of going through the Hydro and bolting it back together right. Lot of little details to get right going back to "factory" from some cheap farmer fix although if all is on the back half on skids that helps.
  8. I bought one of these for at the shop after my coworker got one. Decided I couldn't be without one so I bought one for at home on the farm too. Magnetic base, swivel head, three light modes. USB recharge. I'm not sure it's best for what you're looking to do but would work I think and I find myself grabbing for it all the time in an underlit shop or barn. Bright but compact with good enough battery life and I feel it to be a sturdy magnet.
  9. The should fit the Case 70, 90 series type tractors I think and the Magnums with the 2 piece rear centers without all the bolt holes (uses 8 bolts to hold to the dual hub type hub on the axle) and Ive seen them on 89 series pressed steel rear wheels. Think the inner bolt pattern is 4 on 8 5/8 if I remember right. I wouldn't have minded a couple sets of these but got ahold of some big inner and outer "Texas" type weights that I'll put on my Magnum I think. Have seen them on a 1066 before though, forget what it took to make that work...
  10. Different perspective here as I'm more of the generation you're talking about. I think good friends are a big part of it. It's easy to get caught up in the going with the flow group but I was fortunate to have some really good friends throughout high school and the years since. I was active in FFA and youth group but most of those were the same people I'd run around with the other nights of the week too and grew up going to church with and knew since preschool. Definitely had friends that knew how to have a good time but nobody was ever into drugs. We knew the kids that could probably get or have them in high school but we didn't associate with them probably because they were different. We were a pretty closed group. There's only so much parents can do, I think the kid's peers have more influence since they likely spend more time with the kid. Keeping busy helps. My group most always had plenty going on so we didn't have too much time to get into trouble but we usually made time to get together most weekends. There wasn't many weekend nights from the time I could drive through a year or two out of graduation that we were out doing something hanging out somewhere...after getting our work done. We've all grown in to what I hope are productive members of society, young farmers, mechanics, fair board members, church leaders, and some are becoming parents themselves. I was always thankful for the other older generation in my life that weren't my parents but were that age, families and people I worked for. Came in contact with many walks of life and most fall into the category of either being someone I'd like to emulate part of them or one I want to work to be nothing like them. Can learn from almost all of them. We had a lot of fun and I wouldn't trade it for the world but I wouldn't go back. We all made it through with all our limbs and only a handful of broken bones and no records and a truck load of stories we can look back on. We never ran around with girls in our group so maybe we were missing something but we didn't have those troubles either. Always was told "nothing good happens after midnight."
  11. The 766 was nice but 24,500 is a lot of money. I thought that 9,000 for the 544 Hydro Diesel rowcrop that had sleeve cavitation issues was way more than too much for it. Definitely glad I don't own any of the tractors that sold there, nice but too expensive.
  12. I'm not sure I would spend too much time in trying to make that fender perfect. I like original fenders but that one is gonna take some work. I had originals on my 826 and when I painted it I put new ones on it and my 756 from Abilene Machine. The yellow ones. They are the right width and weight I think, maybe slightly heavier than the originals. I think the lights might be further up in the fender which would probably be noticeable if they were mismatched on a tractor. A&I fenders have a nice paint ready finish but there's no hiding being .75 of an inch too narrow. Abilenes take some sanding to take out primer runs but I think they are a better fender. Have had some sets come through the shop that are not as nice as the rest, not sure what was up with them. The originals from my 826 went on a 1456 so they aren't around anymore. Some pictures for comparison, not sure if you can see what you want to see or not. 756 826 with originals 826 with new fenders
  13. That 79 Red Power one you posted looks like the low hour one that sold on auctiontime or some other auction last year or somewhat recently? That tractor passed through here on its way to its new home I think to switch trucks or something. The hour meter was not counting at that point, hopefully it was as low hour as it was supposed to be. It was still a nice tractor though. We have a 79 Red Power 1086 as well, I'll have to get on the computer for those pictures. There's still a lot of them earning their keep but it's harder and harder to find a nice one anymore. It mowed most of the rye for a couple years after we got it when we had cows, bought it to be the planter tractor, pulls the grain drill some as well. Dad really likes the tractor. About 4800 hours on it now. Original paint but had new interior when we got it.
  14. Would have been fun to come up for a couple days Tim! Looking good. Down here have very little alfalfa to chop and finished rye/triticale a couple weeks ago.
  15. Exactly. I'm not sure why that is so hard to understand. But then here you're trying to explain that to people that forget their tractor needs oil because their horse doesn't...
  16. The only thing we have seen around here with the spring loaded park is they are quicker to knock a reverse tooth off it seems because of how they drop. When that tooth came off versus when the update was installed is hard to measure but that seems to be the general pattern that those with it more often have teeth off than those that don't, because the adjustment rod will bend. We have both of them at home and I don't prefer one over the other, but there aren't many monkeys running my tractors to mess them up either. As far as popping out of high range, I just replaced the shift fork and collar on an 856 that would not stay in. Good detents, made certain it was getting full travel, (above and below the cover) but it took the collar to finally take care of the problem. The old one had some wear but was not what I would have called ground to bits.
  17. Have used Miller Diesel in Harrisburg and been pleased with their work.
  18. Federal Mogul should be every bit as good as the Mahle parts. Sounds like a great option.
  19. Some neat things on that one. But I wish I could find those steering knobs still. Everyone loves the irrigation pump ones but these are my favorite. We have a 706 with a 310 and an M&W on it that is a good runner, I imagine a 358 would be even better. I'd like to find an 826 Hydro to put a turboed 360 in sometime.
  20. If you could find the clevite number that would be best. I'm not sure if they have a way of crossing the IH number. If you ask them about bearings for a C113 they could probably find the number too but if you find it you know what it is. Amish machine shop is a thing here, have almost Amish everything it seems in this area.
  21. Spring Garden Repair in Kinzers deals in Clevite though they are also into Maxiforce as well if you don't find one closer. They are the go to machine shop around here. Amish shop so you might have to leave a message and them call you back.
  22. I would agree going with Mahle, good products.
  23. I see that now. The big rubber looks good as long as it has big enough rubber in the rear!
  24. I'm pretty sure those are just 11.00x16s on the sales picture. We bought an early 1586 new and it's still in the family but it needs a little love to be nice again. I'll have to search the computer for some older pictures. Dad was always impressed with how it would pull. He never has seemed to really think our Magnum was much of an improvement if you kept the 4wd kicked out. It was our big tractor and was mostly a tillage tractor most of its life until we got the Magnum and then went no till. It's mostly relegated to loader work now, it's loaded a lot of silage out of Ag Bags. Think it had 9 some thousand hours on it last I looked. It's had motor, TA, rear end, and brake work done in its life. It was swapped to a dual PTO early on too. Early steps, early shifters, round mechanical tach. Hydraulic seat, 3 remotes. It always wore 20.8s and 11.00x16s, water in the inner tires but duals were dry, and a couple sets of wheel weights. Found pictures: It was after this workout that it needed rear end work from what I remember Dad saying. We have a 3 tooth subsoiler, I'm not sure why we were running a 5 tooth. It's almost as steep as it looks, gotta turn your phone to straighten the trees but its still steep, thats why we left the duals on.
  25. I always thought it would be a neat project to take a Kinze pivot frame and mount IH row units on it. Would probably be a fairly pricey project and it wouldn't gain me anything at this point.
