  1. I lubed it up and it rotates just dandy. Put the mirrors on my 5250. I still want to adjust them differently so will be dissecting the arm to see if the detents can be rotated a few degrees. Kind of like repositioning the splines if that were the case.
  2. I’m not sure about the detents design. Is it a spring loaded hinge? If so, then I’m sure lubricating would help the movement.
  3. How do you adjust the axis of this area? I need to rotate the mirror assembly towards the left. Thanks.
  4. A link you may find useful.
  5. I thought the same thing about the dash. Maybe year of production. Here’s mine.
  6. I said to myself that I am not going to look at this thread. I know what happens. Then it happened anyway.
  7. At least you have an easy start with the sliding links. Remove those small screws that holds the lock caps in place - soak if need be but be careful. Two of mine broke and had to drill them out, threads were ok. Sounds like dirt buildup on top of the locking studs. My sliders were locked in with rust and dirt as if they were welded in place. See the link below. https://www.redpowermagazine.com/forums/topic/134684-rusted-lower-3pt-arm-extensions-will-electrolysis-work-to-help-free-them-up/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-1493902
  8. I'm 99% sure they're telescopic.
  9. I had a leak what seemed like it was coming from the bellhousing. Not. The hydraulic oil filter was barely finger tight. I changed all the fluids and filters shortly after I bought the 5250. No more leaks until just recently with my MFD and that's now fixed. That's sure a nice looking 5250 you got there. Are the lower lift links (telescopic) and lower lift link rusted together? And ask the seller if he still has the hammer strap for your tractor. Looks like there used to be one on the drawbar.
  10. I had a '69 CST20 years ago. 396 factory installed and all the other bells and whistles. I sure do miss that truck but not the mileage.
  11. I have a spare right step. I’ll double check next weekend on it’s condition overall. I’m pretty sure it’s in nice straight condition. I had found an older step system that folds up. But as Jass said, straighten yours out. It’s bent back, not damaged. Very nice 5250. More pics please, plus the serial number.
  12. Just realized something about my build date. January 9, 1997 1-9-1997 1-9-97 or 1997 😁
  13. Had new spindle seals installed and replaced the tie rod assemblies. Thought a little power check was in order. The 5250 is rated at 112 hp (my build date is January 9th 1997). A 5150 Pro from Europe is rated at 132 hp. N&S Case IH dealer in Stockton, CA performed the dyno services. She’s putting out 130 hp. Very pleased.
  14. Can you get a picture of your conveyor system showing the type and positions of the motors?
  15. This is up my alley. I called a couple of coworkers for some weekend brain teasing. One thing quickly agreed upon for the cheap are high end shaft bearings at each end. Upgrade conveyor chains if need be with bearing type links. And keep that chain precisely adjusted for minimum sag. You cannot push a chain. But you should be able to run the three motors together with no problems. Granted that they are of identical spec. Also have each motor alarmed for over amping. If anyone motor should over amp, alarm and stop all three motors with the one overload circuit of the one motor. This would be something wired in series.
  16. A shot of penicillin for your Willy.
  17. Well, think about this. I’m sure we all agree that’s a lot of locomotives sitting there, idled. So where are all the rail cars being mothballed? That’s a shee-ton of equipment considering a couple or so engines can pull 2 miles worth of cars.
  18. I drove by yesterday, still looks like 89 locomotives sitting there.
  19. Thought this may be of interest. https://tracyrail.org/union-pacific-mothball-fleet In Tracy, California ( used Google Earth )
  20. Golly-gee-wiz. After seeing your new 986, I thought maybe I’d like to find one. Apparently on Tractor House, some were put together with golden nuts. 😁 Seriously, very nice find.
  21. I thought I had a better pic of my setup but not. First pic is unfinished rebuild, maybe 80% done.
  22. Top secret. I bought and sold a few plows for profit to build this one. 92 new nuts/bolts, new 18” shares, a couple used shins & new, a couple used cover boards & new, four used like new moldboards, new Coulter blades & bearings/seals and new landslides. Replaced the 16” frogs with 18” adjustable tilt frogs. New Milwaukee sawzall, new Metabo angle grinder and new Aircat 14,000 rpm pneumatic cut off tool (very cool).
  23. When hunting for an IH 450 plow I found out that 16” bottoms were the max in width. That’s when I run across the JD 1600.
  24. JD 1600 mounted plow did come in a 5 btm.
  25. The frogs, moldboards & shares were on many different JD plows of that era. Could it be that 18” shares were mounted on 16” frogs and mated with 16” moldboards? There were two different size of frogs at the time. The 16” frog brace bar was much shorter than the 18” frog. And, also, the 16” frog extended corner was cut off. The blue circle shows the 18” configuration. The red arrow shows what’s cut off on a 16” frog.
