  1. Hiring it done isn’t an option it’s a good 20 miles from me to him and in this day in time certain tings need to be sprayed within a timely manner not a few days later if that. As far as a spra coupe goes being crude the thought of getting an ol 600 Deere has crossed my mind more than once not having a cab is the main reason I keep putting that idea to the side.
  2. Update on one of the decals it says Tailored hydraulics and on the back of the seat it appears to have said operator comfort.
  3. Over this past year it has come to my attention that a sprayer upgrade is a must before going into next year. I’m just don’t know what to go with as all my previous spraying has been done with a tractor and a few times clearance had been an issue I’d like to have at least a 50ft boom no less than 200 gallon tank as on a normal I probably spray 600 acres and under bad conditions no more than 1200 a year. I’ve looked at a couple spra coupe 230s but all too far off if I knew I could change tires and get enough clearance out of a tractor I’d set up a tractor just for spraying I’d like to stay with a mounted sprayer if staying with a tractor as well. So what’s all the smaller guys using for sprayers if it’s a tractor let’s see some pics. Thanks
  4. I’ll see if I can snap a couple pictures of the old decals next time I’m by the tractor I just haven’t had time to get back to it. But after looking at a few brass tacks decals online in sure that’s what it is.
  5. Ok so I brought in a rust ol international 240 utility was looking at it today with the sun hitting it at a different angle and it had the slight remains of a dew decals. On one side in front of the logo it’s got “4 Speed” behind the decal is say “Conveniently Grouped Controls” and on the other side being the logo it had “Hyra Touch Hydraulics With Tel-A-Depth” and it had one more but it seemed to be too far gone to make out. Was wondering if this was some kind of demonstrator or something put together to show off at the county fair by a dealer years ago. Just thought it was kinda neat and was wondering if there was any back story know.
  6. I know some of the down pressure springs were broke and the feed shaft had froze up probably just take the whole box off and turn it upside down to work on that part. As for the down pressure springs I hope I can find at least 12 good ones to get me going on 15” rows all the openers seem to be in good shape and think there’s like 8 or 10 spare opener assemblies. It has no row markers it’s rare to find them on a drill around here.
  7. Anyone have the service bulletin about hooking the sentry up to key on/off power
  8. I wouldn’t say it’s too far gone but it’ll take some work couple weeks ago on auction 15ft UFT drill with the box and meters all eaten up brought $1200 and a 15ft 750 Deere with numerous parts missing sold for $5000.
  9. It’s hi/low electrical clutch pack issues I’ll try everything said about sentry power and grounds at least it’ll give me a starting point thanks.
  10. Got a 3400 24-7.5 sitting behind the barn been there as long as I can remember was wondering if it was worth fixing up especially since notill drills have went completely out of sight. Need it to double crop some soybeans and sorghum into rye straw on 15” rows hows the accuracy on them? I know parts are kind pricey think that why it’s been sitting behind the barn for so long.
  11. Bought this tractor over the winter as a little project been working on it off and on whenever I got a minute and so on but here’s where we start upon going and looking at the tractor it had to be jumped off and cranked so nothing acted right with the trans sentry system so rolled the dice and brought her home. Upon checking and cleaning all connections one battery was near new and the other was like 6-7 yeas old gone bad killing the other. Fixed all that changed cable ends and all fired it up drove it around everything was fine for about 10 minutes and sentry light came on lost odd gears. Brought it back to the shop switched relays and lost evens that time so went to case bought two new relays popped them in everything was good as new shifted like a dream though we was good to go but couple days later sentry light comes on lost one set of gears can’t exactly remember but kinda puzzled I switched one of the new relays with what I knew was the good old one and off she went done some other work and all drove it a good bit and parked it for a couple months. So yesterday it fired up shifted from odd to even once cut it off to do something and tried to move and it’s a no go in odd shifted to even and it pulled no sentry light has came on or nothing shift it to lo range on the go it stays in high no light ever comes on or nothing sometimes it will decide to take off in lo but when you shift the lever to high there’s no change. amp gauge always has been a little moody but now it’s went completely lazy reads like 10 volts when running but the tractor is charging the normal 14 volts. Sentry unit has fire to it I’m just lost and it’s got me thinking is losing connection somewhere as it shifted completely fine whenever I parked it. I know it’s a lot but it’s the whole story up to now
  12. Got one with the 360 running a M&W turbo on it and it’ll hang right there with a stock 1086 I like it but it’s kind of a complex setup I’d imagine finding a turbo exhaust manifold would make things a lot simpler.
  13. What kind of leaks do you say it causes? So your using the nitrate free Prestone what’s the difference than nitrated? Think shell will do the same thing told a parts guy to bring me some shell oil and a couple gallons of antifreeze thinking it’d green come to find out it was red a few days later when I seen it sitting in the floor.
  14. Not trying to start a debate or anything I’m just trying to clear the air so I know what to do to help increase the service life of my equipment. 1. Been told if I use extended life red antifreeze on stuff with a water filter your supposed to do away with it or is it ok on those pieces of equipment to still use the green? 2. Red extended life requires no additional scr’s so it’ll work best on everything else without a filter ok to buy concentrate and mix it with distilled water?
