  1. THis is good to hear. I also took the 3100 that was on my 1486 when I bought it. Never put it on cuz I didn't need it. I also likes the way the 86 shifts. Just like running the tractor period. May have to get the DuAl put on.
  2. Would teeth made from old flattened out leaf springs last longer?
  3. My tongue firmly implanted in cheek also. I hope this thread continues down whichever winding path it chooses. As for your trip through North Platte. A fist full of cash and a car full of gas..... Maybe I should put that on my bucket list. Nothing to do but see some new country in a classic muscle car. If I could go AWOL for a month, good luck finding me ๐Ÿค 
  4. Zip tie around drive shaft so it hits floor of pickup. Harmonica behind engine fan. Back in the golden olden days, a wire from the coil and under driver seat cover.
  5. Mike, oh Mike Where do I begin. I read a lot of people asking sincere questions so they can better understand your fixation with billy goat tea. Your patience bone seems broken or at the very least, stress fractured. Maybe a good strong cup of black (no foliage added) cowboy coffee, the kind you can stand a spoon up in, would settle your jangled nerves. And, adding a raw egg to the coffee pot will take the place of your toothy tucker filter in trapping errant Coffey grounds. (No swinging over the head endangering low flying dodo ๐Ÿฆค birds) As we are not a wasteful lot. We will then give the egg to the camp hound where the added caffeine from the coffee grounds will give him a second overdrive for catching any careless jack rabbits that venture to close. I hope this helps you better understand that the redneck way is not without the benefit of generations of trial and error. After all we seem to be thriving where some other cultures are mudded in.๐Ÿค 
  6. Hope you are over the hump and start to feel better from here on out Also hope your wife has but a mild case and you both up and back to normal very soon Praying for health, healing and strength to bring you through.
  7. My condolences on the loss of your brother in law. My prayers are for comfort and healing for your family. Also that your sister recovers quickly and completely. Sometimes it seems the whole world comes crashing down on us all at once. That is the time to have faith and lean on God because will bring you through.
  8. I looked them up. Start around $3K but have no idea what capability you get for that money. @oldtanker has posted some of the stuff he has made with his. He would be the one to fill us in maybe.
  9. Orrrrr. It missed the coffee spot too and was rebelling๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜‚
  10. Might be a battery and a gallon of gas. If motor or hydro shot. A lot of stuff to transfer over to my 656 shuttle. But sure didn't need to spend what is worth.
  11. Tucker, Todd they say tucker down there where they don't talk such good English like we do up here๐Ÿ˜„
  12. M/SM's have always been special to me First tractor I ever bought and still have two getting occasional use. Nice restore!
  13. Holy smokes Mike Now I've got that consarnit song stuck in my head. ๐ŸŽถdrink it with yer Billy goat. Or think yer tractor is a boat. Black billy tea, it'll make a blind man see๐ŸŽถ Over and over and over it plays.๐Ÿ˜ฉ
  14. International 656 2WD Tractor W/Loader, 7,948 Hrs Showing, 6 Cylinder Gas, Transmission: Hydrostatic w/ Hi/Lo - Stuck In Hi, 540 PTO, Drawbar, Tires: 16.9-38 & 7.5-15SL, Dual All Loader w/ Hydraulic Cylinder, Dual Rear Wheel Weights, NOT OPERATIONAL DAY OF LISTING, SN: 31543
  15. I think I'm going to look at the after market. It will be used mainly for a bale fork, maybe post hole auger. Thought factory would have been the cat's pajamas but it looks like not a simple swap. Donor tractor I was looking at sold to someone else anyway.
  16. It was a 656 gas hydro, said was not operable (salvage was my term). Had good 16.9x38's, good fenders and a decent looking Dual loader and a 3pt. That is why I was interested in it. Why it brung $4900? You will have to ask the last 2 people bidding on it.
  17. Oh but Ace, I should not know that. Now if you want to talk bulls and steers.............................๐Ÿ˜„
  18. Over my pay grade but it is nice to have things operating more like they used to. Thank you BJ!
  19. Salvage tractor I was looking at brung $4900. And no, I did NOT get it.
  20. Well Mike, Not being (nor wanting to be) expert level knowledgeable in billy goat anatomy I will yield to your obvious expertise. Goats is goats to me.๐Ÿ On the bucket, mine looks slightly more appetizing than the number 10 pork and bean can with a #9 wire bail handle your tea sommelier is using. Maybe the leftover bean juice is what gives your black billy tea it's "aromatic" appeal.๐Ÿ‘ƒ And considering pork and beans is THE musical fruit, the more you eat the more you toot. I would assume after drinking mass quantities of black billy tea, you blokes sit around a roaring fire and have a "sing along". Don't get too close to the fire๐Ÿ˜ณ I am learning so much๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“
  21. Did you not get your pill with your morning oatmeal and black billy tea Mike๐Ÿ˜„ In the rest of the tea drinking world, this is a billy And this is a bucket I can slow it down if I'm going to fast๐Ÿ˜‚
  22. Saved it from the scrapper.........showed it some love.............
  23. Some of those pics look like the same places you have posted. "Brew it in a billy, brew it in a pot" What is a billy?
  24. Found over on construction and posted by @busted knuckles Think someone else on here may be a fan๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜„
  25. I have them on my home meadow and have seen them elsewhere. No way of knowing for sure but I figure it is from the days of stacking hay. Where a hay stack set maybe a couple three years or more. If stacks were pulled off sooner it didn't happen.
