  1. 5488 mfd engaged

    Traced wiring ...found the harness was disconnected at switch. Rivet was missing from L bracket on poly mfd cover letting it turn with shaft. Everything back to normal. Detailing now before getting to the field.
  2. 5488 mfd engaged

    Need some quick advice...got the tractor back from having mfd planetary hubs rebuilt and 3 hyd spools redone as week. When son backed it into shop, I noticed poly cover on mfd shaft turning...light was off but engaged. It is later model so it has hyd disengagement. Suspect the solenoid for mfd is disconnected. Where do I look for that? Is there something else I should check?

    Circumference off the tires are the measuring factor used. For example, 18.4-42 has the same circumference as 20.8-38.

  6. Help finding dad's unique black stripe 1466

    Interesting...back in 79 I was going to trade a 966 for a 1086. Already had a 1086. JD dealer brought a 4440 out to demo. We really liked the trans and hydraulics but the Deere was about 5K more to trade. Anyway, I put the new 10 on the 800 planter. What a mess...it leaked oil everywhere, hyd didn't work right, and general workmanship was awful. Furious, I called the dealer and told them to bring my 9 back. Deere dealer found out and traded me for the same money as I did for the 10. He said he netted it out just to get me into green. We were green for years after that but drifted back to red when Deere dealers became so uppety. Red dealers seem the same now...no time for farm visits anymore or friendships.
  7. 1066 Cat 3 Hitch and Other Misc Questions

    Go with whatever tractor is in better shape...3pt is same for either.
  8. 1066 Cat 3 Hitch and Other Misc Questions

    That series of tractors are old enough now that one never knows for sure what changes the previous owners may have done. The 966 I had never had enough cooling capacity compared to the 1066. Personal preference would be a 10 but for what you say you'll use it for, a 966 would certainly be adequate.
  9. 730 versus a 735 plow

    We put a cylinder on the 730 we had and it worked fine.
  10. Smaller combines.

    Over the years, I've run older Deeres, AC, and IH combines. Personally if the choice was mine, I'd much prefer a 1440 or 60. If straw quality was an issue then I'd consider a JD 4400 or 6600 diesel. IH straw quality can be improved using smooth grates and vane positioning.

    That would create a whole lot of interest...1066 STRIPPER!!!🤓
  12. 1066 striper problem

    Grandson's landlord has a 1066 that gets diesel in the oil. He only uses it once or twice a year to mow crp ground. My thought is the injector pump is allowing this. Any other thoughts/advice out there? Thanks.
