  1. Thanks for the info - much appreciated!!!!!
  2. Did the D360 used in the IH 766 and 886 tractors suffer cavitation erosion in the sleeves like the 414 engines in the 66 series tractors? I especially see 766 tractors without the additional coolant filter/conditioner in for sale ads. Were these D360 engines less prone to sleeve erosion from the coolant? Just curious. Thanks!
  3. How do these two tractors compare? IH 444 (Louisville built 1968-1971) and a Massey Ferguson 135 of the same era? Both diesel tractors. Any sage advice is much appreciated. Thanks!
  4. I still lurk here... Special thanks to CIHTECH !!! Baling some hay...
  5. Here is a fun video we put together for folks with small fields who want to have a try at making hay on a budget with older equipment. Scattered in this video is the 756 gasser and in one frame where you don't see it - you know it's there from the smoke... LOL! Enjoy!
  6. January 12th Temperature in the 60’s, sunny and clear...?
  7. Our hay is cash only - receipt provided. No holding, no pay me later. First come, first served. We also have a net 45 on payment. You got 45 seconds after the hay is loaded to pay or it gets unloaded. Had a guy offer to pay via an e-check. I asked him how I would hold an e-check until payday? He paid cash.
  8. In addition to the Krone I mentioned earlier, we have a New Holland 256 rake, New Holland 156 tedder and a John Deere 348 square baler with a pan kicker. I’ll try to attach videos of those - but you can go to JHJ-Farm on you tube and find all of our videos, including other hay equipment we use. 80 acres is a lot of hay, especially for square bales and older equipment. What is your market? Good luck!
  9. We also have a Krone mower conditioner, 2801cv impeller machine. I’ve had mine on two wheels too... Here a video of it working... The Krone is an awesome mower conditioner.
  10. What kind of weight is being placed on these draw bars with the grain carts?
  11. Forgive me if this link has previously been posted. If not, I’m hoping you folks are watching this guy and his 856 project. IMHO - incredible.
  12. My 2 cents - get him an old Marlin 336 30-30 lever action rifle and a cheap Mossburg pump 20 ga shotgun. He can upgrade later - he has a lifetime to do it. Get him into a hunter safety course. Good luck!
  13. Looks like a nice tractor. As far as the hours, as old as these machines are, IMHO it’s more about condition. Don’t remember who said, “how old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were”. Sometimes I think we’d be better off if there were no hour meters. As to the 34’s, I seem to recall when looking at a very early 986 with 34’s, someone said they were standard at that time, but I don’t know.
  14. Has the percentage of people reaching into the fridge and drinking straight out of the jug, when no one is looking, gone up or down over the past 30 years? Sorry... BACK TO LURKING!!!!!
