  1. Your #15 is a 15 It's all about the ratio between the sprockets used in the "gear box"
  2. Does your planter use 2040 chain for just the drive tire to the first hex shaft or does it use it on the two side by side reductions also? We have had a 900 ,950 and 955 and the only place that ours used the 2040 or 2050 chain was at the sprocket from the tire up to the hex Shaft or from that hex shaft to the fertilizer other than that it was all number 40 chain but maybe they were different on some models
  3. I would consider 2040 a skip tooth chain of a 40 chain . The length is twice as long so it hits every other Cog on a number 40 sprocket
  4. Some type of solder. Any epoxy or jbweld will interfere with fixing it correctly down the road
  5. I was told years ago when we were in the old shop that a sealed drum will (not can) suck moisture in past the sealing Oring on the barrel bung. We were a non heated shop and I had seen issues with moisture in the oils
  6. 2040 chain doesn't make a difference with the ratio. It all goes by rotations of the driver sprocket per acre compared to the drive/driven to drive/driven ratios and then the seed drum holes figured in
  7. I have some ideas for doing something like that but enclosed in oil. I want to slide on big 1000 and have 540 sticking out. I have a few cheaper lagoon pumps that are 540 and I just adapted to do this last week when the McCormick was the only 540 tractor not being used and the McCormick PTO didn't want to keep turning.
  8. We were going to spread manure tomorrow and Monday ( we never do that on Sunday unless absolutely necessary) as the custom guys were available through Tuesday. But it just poured
  9. Heard this on the radio today let the kids watch it again
  10. The guy who bought out one of the few remaining customer manure hauling is starving..huge list of work to do but no weather to complete the work.. just starting to get a little done now.. Hopefully we have some good weather to get the corn in the ground in the next week or so
  11. If it's anything like that 8050 MFD powershift we had it's going to have a negative torque curve ..... The powershift in my opinion was NO better than the 8 speed in the JD. We had a 4630 and two 3020 PS tractors and the 8050 was the one we worked on the most. Torque limiter was out every year and a half like clockwork. We got it brand new in the spring of '87 and sold it in the spring of 2000?

    Exhaust rotocap

    Wouldn't a good engine shop be able to source them ?
  13. SDman is definitely correct about the 7150 being the only 7100 series with the wastegate. I remember having the brochure and looking over it and drooling over idea of a 7150 while we had in Allis Chumers 8050 POS
  14. Maybe he will upgrade like he did with the sprayer. We had seriously been considering the sprayer before he bought it. My cousin was there working on something the day ( or day after) it was delivered

    2019 hay

    Had a shower over night and then it started to rain around noon . It was done trying within 15 minutes. We then finished it up. Light crop so far. Been entirely too wet. Finished with the 7240 limping along without 3, 4, 9, 10, 15 and 16 gears .... Picture of the Red head being delivered to ride (or sleep) in the chopper
