  1. Deere's p[art numbering system was based on the factory the product was designed for: R for Waterloo, M for Dubuque/Davenport etc... If a part number starts with an A, it's either an old part designed for a Model in the 1930's thru 1950's OR it is an assembly - example: AH141632 is the assembled outer point for the 9000 series corn head.
  2. I get vertigo in the summer when my allergies are bad.. my sinuses plug up and it screws with my balance
  3. I've been seeing a lot of burr oaks dieing in my neck of the woods lately..
  4. I have one from the farm in storage now.. I think they were zinc plated?
  5. In case you didn't know - this storm was classified as a "derecho" A derecho (/dəˈreɪtʃoʊ/, from Spanish: derecho [deˈɾetʃo], "straight") is a widespread, long-lived, straight-line wind storm that is associated with a fast-moving group of severe thunderstorms known as a mesoscale convective system. Derechos can cause hurricane-force winds, tornadoes, heavy rains, and flash floods. Basically - a hurricane on land instead of water...
  6. We had 80 - 100 mph winds in this storm. I have to drive around piles of branches and take side roads to get to work in Iowa City. I personally have seen the stoplight and railroad crossing light this crazy storm blew down... glad I was not out in this!
  7. I have seen this tractor in person! This salvage yard is not far from my old stomping grounds.
  8. Thanks Jeff... now i am going to have to find any info I had from that project - getting curious to see what Deere did redesign. I do remember they did design new rolls, one like the Pixall rolls that were out in the early 90's...those suckers would take wet corn off the stalk!
  9. last January? seems like a million years ago...before the virus took over
  10. Jeff-C-IL - are you saying the 90 series Deere heads were the same as the earlier 40 series under the poly? If I remember correctly, Deere redesigned the entire corn head. Yes some parts may have been the same. I was part of the plastics team at a vendor on this one... it's been almost 30 years since that project and I thought I remembered the entire head was new parts?? Fun fact... a wet poly head was tested in the field a few times; the combine operator actually was able to speed up the ground speed as the corn went into the rolls faster when wet.
  11. I say yes; the 9000 series cornhead was a HUGE improvement over the 40 series. The poly points will help save corn, will not rust and can take a bit more abuse in the field than the old 40 series could. It was a completely redesigned corn head.
  12. I wonder if the dealer or original owner painted the front knee extensions so they would not rust? I pre-delivered many JD 4440's back in my younger days and always touched up paint so no bare spots were visible to the buyer...
  13. it might have been bought and only used a few years doing tillage work.. and was kept clean by the previous owners..
  14. check for bad gas too. check the plug wires and spark plugs as they may be bad
  15. I have seen rims that were painted inside with epoxy paint..after sandblasting and a lot of sanding/grinding.
