    Nice looking stuff 234ia, when did you get the 88?? We are also still on 38" rows and getting great yeilds but, a little tough to get the 2166 with axle extensions down 4 rows. I also have a 6 row for custom corn we combine.

    Deere starting em young....

    Guys, i think indy farmer is just poking fun, but seriously regarding your TA bashing,I have seen, owned, and worked on several IH tractors that with proper care have not had a clutch or TA replacement until 8,000hrs. Had a neighbor that had a 666D ran till 10,000hrs. before 1st split, for a clutch. Another neighbor just had his 966 here for a PTO clutch, 7,000+ hrs. And never touched engine or TA 45 years since new!!! I could go on and on, but my point is, maintenance and operating them properly goes a long way on whatever color you drive.

    Early 1066 vs late 1066

    Your 4630 must have fluid, weights, and the 1066 must not have either, or a cab. All the deeres vs Ih I've been around the deeres are always lighter from the factory. I have a buddy we tractor pull with has a 4020 turbo, it weighs 600lbs less than our 826/856. He has a 4320 that weighs 1000lbs less than my 1456. His 4440 is also lighter than our 1086. And all are bare tractors with no weights or fluid. All said we still have tons of fun pulling against each other.

    Fuel Pump gasket kits

    It is a square ring, I have had good luck replacing a few of them. I get the kits from BK diesel, be very careful when disassembling it, and putting back together and timed properly.

    886 vs 986

    Ya those 360 engines really have great power, especially with a turbo, they burn less fuel than a 986 with the 436 also.

    886 vs 986

    My 886 also has a turbo, it will keep up with a stock 1086 most days.

    886 Gremlin's

    Lachlan, on the TA ,did it come with the drive gear that goes on the countershaft?? Did you verify the correct number of teeth on the IPTO shaft that you replaced with the one you took out, both things could cause the symtoms you described??As far as the release bearing you may want to make sure you have the proper freeplay on the pedal.

    Electrical box under meter and gen throw switch

    Dale that green box is called a Terminal box commonly used back in the day, the 200amp main panel that mule showed will work, just make sure your URD underground wires dont have any bad spots in them,since they haven't had any conduit over them for protection over the last few years. And make sure you have proper overcurrent protection between meter socket and green box as stated, and please be safe.

    Kidney stones

    Mike hope you get that 5th one out! I had my first stone last spring, I was filling the cornplanter with seed one night and the pain came on, didn't know what the h it was and lasted 10min and went away, next attack came to me approximately the same time 3 days later pain was a lot worse this time laid on the floor helpless till it went away. Third time I had it attack, wife said your going to the ER, they gave me hydrocodone and pain was gone 7mm stone they said. Long story short i forgot the pee sceen a few days when i was spraying corn and went for a checkup a few days later and doctors said they couldn't find it,and they figured I had passed it good i sighed. Well while i was at the RPRU last year the pain came on the worst of all!!! Lets just say i could not get home fast enough that day 4hr. Drive seemed like eternity.. I did finally pass the bugger a few days later so I fell your pain, it was by far the worst pain I have ever experienced!!! Hang in there!!!! Below is a pic of mine.

    Electrical box under meter and gen throw switch

    Not sure if you have a generator hookup or not but that box is called a transfer switch?? Or maybe you are wanting just a terminal box that goes below the 200amp main disconnect?? You can pm me I am a master electrician a few days of the year.
