    Fall plow day ky

    If you can text them to me, I'll post them.
  2. I borrowed a service manual from Donny. Should be able to figure it out.
  3. Wire is truly incredible stuff! Think of the things that would not be possible without it.

    If only I had more time! I have got far+ stories!
  5. Going to see if I can find some SS cotter pins in Newton Ia. today. Want to put this thing together tomorrow and really don't want to make a 50 mile trip for two cotter pins. Don't want to have to open her back up in the future either. Edit; Grinnell has them, going to take the scenic route to work and pick up a couple. Stainless steel has a lot of chrome in it, that would give it an abrasion resistant quality, I can see that. Thanks for the tip Kal! Really don't want to take that access panel off ever again!

    I'll be with you in spirit, little far to be there in person. Hope you get some good pics for us, video a real bonus!
  7. No, is that bad? Still time to change that. Need to figure out which way is in time.
  8. Another small update; Probably, (hopefully), the most expensive part of this job. 6 new buckets of hy-tran and one low ash 30 wt.
  9. Found a set of 'combs' at work here a while back. Took a little time to figure out what they were, then thought, a set of them around the farm could be handy. Haven't got them yet though. Every radiator I've worked on has been done with the old screwdriver method.
  10. A large factor in my bringing home that 756!
  11. I frequent this one and unofficial Allis, there are a few others on both sites. If really bored during the winter I'll look at YT. Like Doctor Evil said, not the best place.
  12. Wow! What an improvement!

    966 Fuel Issue

    X-2. A fear drive Cub cadet in low gear works too!
  14. That's the one. Rose hill is a pretty small place, think Luke and his dad are probably the only AC collectors there. They have some 'rare' tractors.
  15. I'll bet I know that guy from Rose Hill. Good Allis man.
  16. Spent a bunch of time at the yard finding the right auger. The one we were going to get had been converted to hex drive, mine is pin drive. Searched for quite a while then found one I really like. Think it was re-flited as opposed to a new replacement. In the search for the horizontal one we found a good vertical auger marked 1460 laying on the ground. Needed some help from the gas-ax the get the horizontal one out so inquired about the vertical at the office. Price was livable, had to go back home for the torch. Anyway, got both augers and got home. Put my good eye on things and decided the prudent thing was to get the vertical changed first. Wheel and tire have to come off to get that thing out, that didn't go too bad really, it is heavy though! Got the 'new' auger in, didn't get the drive back together yet. That old auger was beyond sharp, more like a serrated knife! One note here, the pins and especially the cotter pins that hold them in are a serious pain getting them out and back in working through that access panel. Used the torch on some of them.
  17. Got a buddy to help with the install of the new panel, glad I did, it was a pain. We pulled the auger out, going to the junkyard today to get the 'new' one. It surprised us how easy it was to remove it. Shoup has the vertical ones, probably order one tomorrow, change it next weekend and put this system to bed. With the limited amount of acres I run anything like this should last my lifetime.
  18. The 185 Allis got some damage, not horrible. Working on the new shed thing. Builders are pretty busy.
  19. It's a little more than cosmetic. That bent up panel has been removed, have a replacement ready to go in, there is a piece that I don't have that is so mangled another trip to the junk yard is in order for today.While it's this far apart I may replace the auger too. The machine the "new" tube came from has a nice one in it, if the price is right it will be going in this one. I would like to re-flight or replace the vertical auger also. Not sure if that will get done this year or not.
  20. Saw some corn coming out here in Iowa Saturday. There was a serious cloud of BLACK dust coming out of the combines, mold I assume. The corn was down but not nearly as bad as some of it around here.
  21. Long overdue for an update on this. After the wind-storm and the starter debacle I'm glad to be moving forward once again! My helper was here today and we got the bearing blocks buttoned up. next on the list was the unloading auger, it took a pretty good hit in the storm. Was thin and in need on repair before this, time to get 'er done. Found a really nice replacement tube at the yard. Straightening everything else kept us from getting it back together. Another parts run is in the offing, going to inquire about the auger in the machine the tube came out of, no time like the present to fix it. My beans are still a couple of weeks out but will feel better when this thing is ready.

    756 gas muffler

    Thanks for the ideas guys, will check out the Steiner ones for sure. I have three of them on my AC's and like them. I wondered if Nelson made the originals, much better quality than Stanley.
  23. What are the options for a muffler for my 756 gas project. Pretty sure Stanley makes one, not a huge fan of their work. Anyone else?
  24. Have it where I work, assemblers go threw scads of it! Of course everything we build is custom, one-off type of thing. Congrats on getting it out.
  25. Finally have a manifold ready to go on the tractor. Plan for the day was to mount it on the 301, then tighten the bolts that hold the two halves together and remove until in the tractor. it's not fitting perfectly so final assembly will wait until the 301 is in. Also pulled the waterpump in preparation for the swap. I may not have needed to do that but the pulley won't come off, will have to explore more tomorrow.
