  1. First off tractor starts and runs good when watching where throttle is set at (may have to adjust slightly once this problem is fixed) Current situation -At low throttle (“bottom” notch) it is around 710 rpms -in middle notches it is around 1500-1580 depending on exact spot -two or three notches higher is 1750+ (only for short time when we were trying to find the rpms at certain settings) I know I can use the set screws in the governor to limit the rpms but we would like to be able make smaller adjustments and not have a small amount of travel in the throttle handle It used to not be able to stay running below 900-950 rpms now it easily will stay running at 710/720 so we have made progress but still not enough or where we want it Current linkage position in low throttle (used to cam over-center (to where screwdriver tip is) and that didn’t seem quite right to us so we adjusted it to compensate) “High” throttle setting spring on right side is bottomed out any suggestions or places to start otherwise I’m going to keep slowly adjusting and playing with it until something starts to help
  2. I don’t think there’s direct harm health wise but as it is maturing and pushing out a head I didn’t know if it was detrimental or nutrition wise not helpful to a bred cow or other cattle for that matter. These cows are on hay diet along with being on the fresh wheat (just starting to head out) (finished fence less than 2 weeks ago) They may search for fresh green at the bottom but I think that they may get a sweet tooth for the head/grain as it matures
  3. We are starting a small pasture for a few breeding cows and put wheat in it last fall after beans to get something started. It has been top dressed with some clover and grass which are coming in nicely but the wheat got tall before the fence was finished. The wheat is tall and the cows weren’t able to thin it enough so we are planning to run the combine and probably baler through to take the excess off but my question is how long can cows be on mature wheat before it becomes harmful to them?
  4. Does it start back up within five minutes or do you have to wait a few hours for it to start Try turning the fuel off, pulling the bowl off the carb, turn the fuel on and play with the float to see if the needle valve is letting enough fuel in or if it is sticking (put a cool whip bowl on the frame rail to catch the fuel)
  5. 1.50-2.00 per board foot depending on thickness and length is what the local mills were a month or two ago
  6. We also use an 856 open station on it
  7. We love ours and they still make them so it makes finding parts pretty easy
  8. Sounds similar to something that happened to our 986 two years ago it was something with the TA I will have to ask grandpa about it because I don’t remember exactly what broke and how it was identified but it was the first time he had seen a failure like this and he’s worked on them for 30+ years
  9. Not sure why but that is the low point coolant drain on the block. It might be there to make it easier to drain the coolant from one point. It looks like it ties in to the drain for the radiator which is a good idea because that plug can be a pain and it tends to cover everything in coolant. It is probably from when people would use just water and had to drain it often thus being easier since it was all collected at one point
  10. I’m still in the early learning phase but the big thing is that what and how you feed can turn a $800 heifer into your best cow and it can also turn a $4000 heifer into a cow that struggles to calve and looks horrible.
  11. Northwest Ohio 30 min north of I75 and Ohio 30 intersection
  12. Saw this idea somewhere and planning on doing it whenever we rewire the unloading augers so we don’t need a cord this is what I plan to do on one or two of them is to put up led flood lights on a switch and mount them to a plate on a pipe attached to the bin with some sort of handle to be able to rotate or direct slightly to exactly where you want it
  13. Well just took it off today it put a 3/16 hole in the boot that connects to the heater and had a 2 to 4 inch flame coming out of it (I didn’t see it but who did does not tend to over glorify things).
  14. Teflon tape usually works for those as long as it is completely dry. When the fitting won’t dry completely I use Tru Blu it comes in a tube and it seems to work good so far
  15. Make sure that you are using heavy enough cords and inspect the tractor plug also. We had one start to smolder and flame slightly on the 856 (tractor side not extension cord) last night someone caught it early and all is fine but it is something that you can’t be careful enough about.
