  1. It was used to hold a lye cleaning solution to clean units. I've got two milk units with pulsators but always on the lookout for other dairy related items.
  2. Picked this up at Rentown Old Fashion Days near Nappanee a couple weeks ago. When we milked cows 50 years ago dad used a IH milker & two Surge milkers. Still have them all. Wife let me hang it in the breeze way. Still in pristine condition considering its age and being stoneware.
  3. We've got a 1644 & 2144 both with 20' #1020 heads. Cannot interchange heads without an adapter on the 1644. Everything was backwards plus real jumpy. Got the pigtail adapter from headsight with resistors and it works great. Might be your problem, as above get hold of Jeff.
  4. If I remember correctly, 315 was a wide throat. My dad had a model #93 and I believe it was a @228 head, 2 row wide and a narrow row would be a #327. Someone else might have better information. I do remember they were a pain to switch. Good luck.
  5. I assume you have Crohn's or colitis. Have never used Entyvio but when I was diagnosed with Crohn's my Dr. put me on high doses of steroids along with two other drugs, Humera & Pentasa. I ignored my symptoms too long and eventually led to surgery to remove part of my intestinal tract. Dr. weaned me off the steroids over time but will be on the Pentasa & Humera till the end. Humera is also a biological, take an injection every two weeks. Probably been on it for 15 plus years. I wasn't crazy about it either but better than the alternative. If I remember my Dr. wanted to start me on Entyvio but gave me the choice between these two drugs. You might check with your Dr. about Humera. Don't know if this helps but understand your concern. Good Luck
  6. Old gun boat T Bird?
  7. Ordered some disk parts from Shoup, backorderd. Found just enough shovels for the soil finisher to finish spring work. Generic roundup along with Liberty is tight and more expensive. Usually fill LP tanks in late summer, not waiting for that crisis, list goes on and this is only the tip of the iceberg. Going to get worse before it gets any better.
  8. 2.25" here along with snow flurries. It's been dry enough here that it soaked in well. Need some heat. Been cold and windy last couple of weeks. Ground has worked up as good as I've ever seen. Once over with soil finisher & rolling basket and it looks like a garden. Just need sun & heat.
  9. Replaced the bad brg and rechecked spring alignment. Went to the field and another brg started sqealing. Called the svc mgr/ head mechanic to come and check it out. Wanted to know where brgs came from, all new from your dealership. Took two with him back to the store and would call me within the hour. Called and said he split them open and were junk. Had grease zerks but not drilled to let grease into the bearings. Not even prelubed. Parts mgr was told to pull them off the shelf and call supplier. Got eight Case/IH brgs. Say they're BCA & American made. Rain now going to install tomorrow so we will see. Luckily we have a good soil finisher & dbl rolling harrow and didn't loose two good days.
  10. Appreciate feed back. I've had this disk probably 20 years, use it on 5-600 acres never had any major issues with bgs. He brought me a brg last night and I think this may be the issue. Almost no side movement. Think there probably china junk. Going to try to find some USA made and see if a difference. Will ck back . Thanks
  11. I have a IH 496 24' rockflex disk, my son rebladed the front gangs, all new earth metal blades, new bearings and half spools. Checked all the full spools and were fine. When the gangs were remounted you could spin them easily by hand. He tried working some ground today and ruined one bearing and half spool and can see another one starting to wear excessively. Only thing I think would be the rockflex springs out of adjustment. I'm not much help, had hip surgery two weeks ago. If anyone has any suggestions or have had the same problem would appreciate any feedback. Thanks in advance.
  12. Ethanol plant in South Bend was bidding $6.66 today. .15 over board. Long term not good. Wait till we go buy imputs for next year.
  13. It's a plow, started out with a Buckeye half track wheel machine to do my own tile projects. My boy got interested and started doing small jobs for neighbors, then upgraded to a Buckeye Super D. Got busier and purchased the plow for system tile projects and use a DynaPac 2400 trencher instead of Super D . Started this 9 years ago and now evolved into a full time business.
  14. Not a Dozer but does have tracks, Deutz power & hyd drive.
