  1. Yes I agree. Wix has a great site. I only got one filter that they say would fit a machine and it didn't.Just after that I buy that filter from a New Holland dealer.

    Under 4 here is only a distant memory. What state do you live in?
  4. I like when old machines get fixed from years of cobbling up.Though for sure I was one of those cobblers. I did it out of necessity and not having quite the tools for machining or blacksmithing. I too look at the manufacturers components verse brand of machine.Far to easy for a dealer to say not in my book,can't order it ,buy new machine.
  5. My dad always planted couple hundred acres of wheat to help with cash flow in summer in the 70's.Bins were less prevalent, and we grew about 400 acres of corn couple hundred of beans along with brood cows. Small farm for sure compared to you guys out west that have thousands if acres.
  6. I agree with all of the above. Sadly it's a sign of the times.Schools do not teach sentence structure, grammar etc. at the same level or put as much importance on proper english,word usage.Heck even the teachers now can't diagram a sentence.
  7. Yes,that is only for when pressure builds up and cap releases it and it is supposed to flow down the side so no one gets burnt from hit coolant
  8. Yes that's just for overflow.If it's burping out check your radiator cap for a tight seal,good gasket not bent.Also don't put a too high pressure cap on it,old radiators will spring leaks.8lb is all I would do no more than 10.Flush the fins first good on the radiator, then check belt to make sure is tight,not wore down in pulleys.Then thermostat. I would try flushing system then if that doesn't work.If it still won't cool,pull the radiator and have it flushed, pressure checked for leaks at a radiator shop.
  9. One thing I like about transmission park lock and living on hills.Nothing is flat driveways,fields etc.So you always have to put it in park and your park lock better work or your either get run over or it runs way even if it's only a few feet.So you gotta keep them working.I don't like starting stuff standing on the ground either but a IH with the park lock working and down is pretty safe.I cringe when you see people doing stuff to tractors that they really don't know what their doing.I do and agree with tractorman Mike, I double check before I hit the switch.
  10. Great mowers.I had 100 to 1000,semi mount, fast hitch and 3pt.Got a 100 and 1000 now.Dad bought a new 100 semi mount when I was 6 or so never forget it coming home from the dealer.Mowing hay,trimming up can't be beat.Nice quiet and just sing .
  11. Also use lubricant in your fuel.Even if your supplier says they do,its cheap insurance plus the fuel needs it.

    scrap price?

    Yea I got some junk here needs gone,not enough for a container but enough that's getting in the way.I hate hauling it in because you drive in a scrap yard and law of averages sooner or later your going to cut a tire.
  13. I been reading this thread all along. You keep talking about your 1066 like it is a dog.I just couldn't understand how this 1270 will out pull a 1066. Just my opinion.But after reading this thread I can.

    scrap price?

    I know,but the problem with honest folks is we are honest. The government knows that.Crooks don't care about laws,jails or honesty.They might get caught once and not 1000 times.

    scrap price?

    I sure hope not. So what did we do cash checks and hide cash in the ground.Do we buy equipment so there is a real value there.its scary for sure.I got quite a bit in financial institutions.You pull it out ,then want to buy something with cash(large purchase) and the dealer whatever cant take because of money laundering laws.You deposit it in a new bank and the government wants to know where you got it.I know of one co op here in the Northeast went bankrupt around early 2000-01,Agway.They had a run on their stock after news was leaked of trouble . My neighbor was a feed,seed salesman for them,thought it was bogus,people just panicking out of rumors,was wrong and the liquidation of people's stocks were the ones hurting the company,blaming them not management,directors.Well it turned out that he was just fed the company line,believed it and was doing what he was told to buy Agway time so the directors could get their money out. Well my aunt,a widow lost $150k in stocks,all she had.She put sale of a farm in Agway and lived off of it when my uncle died.My other uncle told her to get out when things got bad but she didn't.She was sold the lie to put all her money in one basket. But to her defense her monthly checks were real good for her to live on.Just when it was heading down hill Agway kept telling her "it will come back,don't worry,don't liquidate "The upper crust knew all the time that it wouldn't. Stole a widow's money, pretty low.

    Just wondering why IH and Case IH grain drills are or seem to be a standard of the industry or at one time were before all the new no till drills. I basically only ever used IH drills from the old McCormick MF series to 10 ,510 and so on up until the merger. It just seems either a JD,Ford guy either has a IH/CIH drill to plant grain,beans, grass hay or alfalfa or he rents a no till drill. What did IH design that was better than what the diehard green guys felt it was worth jumping the fence for like the IH moldboard plows.Was metering,seed placement,furrow firmness?Just got 2 days of rain going on 4 inches total so can hardly walk in the yard let alone work in the fields so my mind wanders.
  17. I like the picture. Where does it happen to be?
  18. The swinging of the 3pt is why I loved fast hitch so much.

    Td 15

    Wow but original right parts are worth it.And really I spent big money on common roller or ball bearings that were just big and odd ball.$250 per bearing if you think about and it's fixed, probably for a very long time is well worth it and not bad.

    Fuel prices

    Why was there a difference, did they raise 10 cents before they could drive to the next tank?
