    Look at BJ's project on the same page as this, I put alot of into that cab and theres just not alot of good survivors left.  I can post pictures here too but I don't want to take away from the 1086 project

    I seen that he did a excellent job on that cab! I picked up a late model 86 cab (what was left) cheap at my local yard but it needs all the sheet metal i want to try redoing for my 986 i bought that was rolled! I have most parts between the two

    It is only a phone call to discuss with Rollie at Herrs to diagnose if it's something simple. We had a capsule go bad once, brother in law had the clutch valve (dump valve) go bad , both simple and cheaper things to repair

    Thanks bitty i will give them a call this week

    Was the PTO engaged when you heard this chattering noise? I have seen some implement drive lines cause chattering in the PTO drive train when turning. I have had tractors show up at the shop that the owner was sure they had a problem in the PTO drive train and when we put them on the dyno they worked and sounded just fine.

    No i usually figured the chattering in that situation is the input shaft goin south! The pto was not engaged it definitely the transmission i dont have the money to put towards it for a full rebuild at this time! So it may sit i been around hydros all my life just never worked on the internals! 

  4. So the old 1026 i know is probably on the weak side! Today i was pawing around at the end of a field on a hill riding a the break trying to get turned around and the transmission started clattering! So i backed off and it quit i know on the highway its not right! It had new hytran and a full service after i got it i put a 100 light duty hours on it since! My question is if i keep running it light duty will i do more damage than what is already been done? Can i destroy something that isnt available parts wise that isnt for a hydro anymore? Not in the budget at the moment for a rebuild! But rather it not totally sit and do nothin! Was picking corn today for the amish!

    I hate to sandblast to much of my time  personally , I hire it now , to much dust ,wear and tear on compressor ,. So what do I do for rust. Power wash clean the dirt and grease off . 

    I use now is a mixture of 50% water + white vinegar  and soak for few days depends on steels or cast irons  the rusted parts a then power wash , dry and paint asap with rusty primer , then that's my take on . 

    here is a sample of rusty Bicycle seat   soaked in vineger and water . Ohio is the capital of rust ! 




    Were pretty rusty over here in pa. to! Haha i hate it

    How about narrow front with cab?

    i second the narrow front with duels id say no cab but im a original guy and if the cab isnt shot it should stay! Cab narrow front an duels and maybe a set of rear wheel weights and a whole rack up front weights would be alittle different!

    You hit the nail on the head, I am just the opposite and find value in stuff I shouldn't and always think "it can be saved". That is why I have too many projects to ever finish in my lifetime. Some people, you ask them what kind of car they drive and they reply "blue".

    Dont feel alone sandhiller i have the same problem to many projects trying to work a 60 hour week job and farm! Wife says im nuts people at work think im crazy! Atleast we can get on here and talk about our problems with other people who understand! Hahaha

  8. So the other day i had a molar yanked out in back of my head they told me oh we cant fix it the roots are eroded away! Ok i guess pull it then! Well went to the oral surgeon he yanked it and another! Well when he pulled the molar i guess the roots were better shape then the thought and they went up in my sinus! Well after he smashed his hand in his own pliers and told me that was the hardest tooth he ever pulled. He got it out he realized thier was a bigger problem with the hole he put alot of stiches in thier i tried counting how many stitches as he was sewing! After he realized this problem his tone of voice change and i had a sense of he was worried but tried continuing to act calm! After all done he told me do not blow my nose for atleast two weeks or i will blow the hole wide open! I can feel crap in my nose breathing sucks cause i breathe through my mouth my mouth drys out breathe through my nose feels like sombody is ramming a stick in it! Anybody else have this issue i just dont want breathing problems or a sinus infection? Before all this i never knew roots could go that far up in your head!

    Guy on another forum says that cleaning up and old farm they found stacks on IH suitcase weights. He was wondering if they had any value. If not they will be going into a rolloff for scrap. Now I know what you pay for them here between the collectors and the pullers.....he's someplace out in mid to west PA.



    Is this a teaser????

    Lol. Brother had hubs, rims were reasonable at a sale. Tractor will float now compared to the 18.4 ones that were on it. It had calcium and the rims were fairly rusty . It's his toy 

    I like it! I bet it gets good traction and would hold mud like duels! My old boss we had a 7930 jd 4wd that had 710 something by 38s loaded with beat juice on the rear it went good they had duels to but never put them on!

    I'd be interesed in Claas and Krone round balers, but basically there aren't any dealers for at least a hundred miles.

    The claas 46 was a baler that cost dad nothin to run was never broke down! He did hit a ground hog hole and broke a axle once! But he bought it new and besides me sometimes he was the only operator! Makes a huge difference on equipment! Im just thinking of branching out into some hay i square baled some last year could have did more i was the bale handler and wife tractor driver! What id like to do is square as much as i can and then when i start running out of time roll up the rest! 

  12. And when i was in school the other kids said i should grow weed on the farm! I always said how much ya giver fer a round bale? Now its gonna become a reality! Hahaha seems to be alot of talk in Pennsylvania about this week with that turd ball governor the rest of the state voted back in! 😡

  13. Sorry to see that i had a couple close calls never lost one completely! Dad just got a new gehl skid steer was gonna haul manure took skid steer down parked went to get the spreader came back and the skid steer was smoking so being 14 i jumped on it was still running and smoking headed for the milk house and got the hose out! Lucky it was new didnt have any oil and everything else in the bottom of the belly pan battery cable shorted out! Then one time i just bought a 966 first day out it had some extra wiring up under the dash for something i was picking corn and it shorted out lucky they didnt have bolts in the center section cause i didnt have wrenches!
