  1. Thanks for all the replies.......yes the bolts are coming loose and then the pan starts to leak. I know what you mean rustred.....it isn't making sense.......we just haven't found the right tree yet. We have had 2 different mechanics locally try to get it........they haven't succeeded, so we are back to trying to figure it out ourselves. I haven't explored anything on the other end.......but that is something we will look into.
  2. They seem to all work loose, although the front are normally more loose than the rear. Then usually starts leaking from the front of the pan........had a local shop tell us the cork gasket is the problem. I can understand that to a point. Haven't been able to find a rubber pan gasket yet. Plan on tearing into it yet today or Monday. We found a balancer..........plan on swapping and at least we can rule that out. Thanks for the replies!
  3. Have bean having this issue with our 756 gasser. Starting last summer we haven't been able to keep the oil pan bolts tight/keep the gasket from leaking. Have talked with a couple forum members and had some good ideas given.......am wondering if anyone else has had this issue. We are on our 5th try right now........and it started leaking again yesterday......bolts are loose again. We can tighten them in the morning and by evening (front mount cultivator tractor) they are loose again. Have cleaned out the bolt holes, tried new bolts and lock washers, loctite, made sure pan lip is true and straight, inspected pan for cracks/deformities. Am thinking maybe dampener pulley is going bad.........at least I think that's next on the list to try. Grandpa bought this tractor new and was never an issue until last year. Any ideas/help would be appreciated!
  4. Here's a link to the post when we re-built it.
  5. I don't know about blade size for that disc.........but I would second the motion that earth metal blades are worth it. We re-bladed our 496 a couple years ago with earth metal blades. I don't remember details of price other than we bought at our dealer's spring open house and the price was just as reasonable as anywhere else we could have bought. Have always had earth metal since I can remember, and have never had an issue with them.
  6. A little history..... https://www.aaanderson.com/about
  7. Think this is what you are referring to. It's not too far from me.......have driven by it many times. https://www.news8000.com/spring-grove-farm-owners-experience-close-call-after-silo-collapses/
  8. RIck......this is my first experience with one of these.......I thought it would pull a lot harder when we buried it as we have some pretty heavy soils. Your expectations are correct........we were in 4th gear and it didn't hardly move the temp gauge:)!
  9. Lookin good!! Dad and I had an old 2 point ripper that we picked up a while back sitting in the shed in pieces. We decided it would be fun to put it together and try it out. I was also amazed how well the SMTA pulled that thing........was a lot of fun!! Had a few neighbors stop by........most of them just shook their heads.
  10. This ended up being the first project of the winter........I posted before about the 251 planter we picked up. For the most part it is in pretty good shape.....the only area that needs major attention is the fertilizer pieces.......and most of those are pretty decent also. What we need help with is the shoe, or frog, or whatever you call it that attaches directly behind the runner that distributes the fertilizer in the furrow. Those pieces are in pretty tough shape...one side is better than the other. I know they will be hard.......maybe impossible to find, but am looking for ideas on getting some replacement parts. Thanks!
  11. Wes.........I thought it was a pretty good match to what I could make out from the original. I am curious to know if the model number was anywhere on the cultivator frame. I noticed in the new issue of red power on the first few pages a pic of a toy 400 with a 4 row cultivator.......that cultivator had the model number decals on the front of the tube.
  12. Here's a pic of the decal we used. It seemed to match the type and size of what was on it previously as near as we could tell from the old decal remnants. Not sure if the model number was displayed anywhere on it........I have never noticed it on any other cultivators or cultivator pics.
  13. This is a pic from before we started on ours. It's on top of the square tube........gives you some kind of idea what was on it. Should be original as my grandpa bought the cultivator and tractor new and this was the first it has been rebuilt. I will get a pic of the new decal when I get a chance.......I think we ordered it from Maple Hunter.
  14. Forgot to post pics of the finished product last spring.
  15. Bitty........I'm all for that idea........or maybe a nice 6788.........or as long as I'm dreaming how bout a 7488?? I would be fine with any or all of them:) Troy.......I commented to the parts guy when I picked up the blades and some other parts that pretty soon I would have an old disk for the price of a new one........he assured me we were a ways off yet!!
