  1. Might try worthington ag parts or all state
  2. I would definitely agree. I bought a 706 earlier this year that the motor was shot in and had been sitting out. I took all of the parts off of it that I wanted, ( flat top fenders, Wide front end, weights, tool boxes, 3 point components, hydraulics, all tin work, drawbar, and a few other things and still got 900 for it from the boneyard. As others have stated with a bad motor one you’re just going to have more in it plus the possibility of having to redo the TA. But hopefully someone out there could help you out with it and make a go of it. Good luck in your search!
  3. Started becoming pretty common here in the last 5 to 10 years. I know a few that charge both commission and buyers premium and some that don’t charge buyers premium. Plus then there’s the 3 to 5 percent fee to use a card if you do that. Sale we had last weekend didn’t charge buyers premium if you were at the sale in person but did if you bid online. I understand they have bills to pay and have to pay the help but it is getting ridiculous anymore to pay a premium to buy something on a sale.
  4. I definitely agree with all of that. However, a lot of businesses were doing that long before this happened. I remember McDonald’s putting in kiosks to take orders to do away with counter help, or banks discussing putting in auto mated tellers to do away with real tellers. I agree, I don’t understand how these people that aren’t working make a go of it but businesses have been looking at doing away with help before this too. Hopefully things will get better soon in that department.
  5. We are planning on going Friday. Looking forward to it!
  6. The new seat looks great! Boy you weren’t kidding that one has seen it’s use for sure. I really wish I could find an original that’s even halfway decent for my 1256
  7. I’d definitely like to see it. And it certainly is coming together good for you.
  8. Looks great! Was the old one beyond saving?
  9. I believe maple hunter makes them
  10. Ahh gotcha. I couldn’t quite tell and with those narrow rims that is what threw me off but I was guessing that size. Definitely look really nice on there and I would definitely throw a little paint on them
  11. Looking good and coming together! What size are those front tires?
  12. Lol oh I know it’ll go over like a fart in church but hey a guys gotta try!
  13. We ll definitely do that. Not planning on working it too hard, mostly light duty for it. But definitely a good idea for sure.
  14. That’s correct. I mistyped it as a 65, thanks for the correction
  15. Mine are probably known from yesterday but I’ll chime in with my reasons. 1. 560 diesel with a wide front and flat top fenders. We had one originally and once we put the cab on the 1256 we put the fenders on it and it really looked sharp. Had to use glow plugs on an 80 degree day but could run all week on a tank of fuel. 2. 1026 hydro. I remember running one when I was in my teens for a neighbor that had one and I thought it was so cool that a large frame like that was a Hydro and it was so easy to run and didn’t need to use the clutch. It’s sold about five years ago and I really wish I would’ve bought it. Would definitely like for it to be a gold demo as I really think those are a neat tractor and paint scheme but if not it’s not the end of the world. 3. 1979 4586. We had one that we bought when it was only a year or two old and after the original motor going out numerous times dad put in a Cummins 903 motor and it ran great after that. I remember when I was a little kid looking up at that tractor and how I thought that was a monstrous tractor. I’d love to find it but unfortunately I don’t have the serial for it. The 903 conversion would be the tell sign of it and I’d recognize it if I saw it.
  16. Thank you! Lol hey we all have that row. Seems like we never get to it lol. Wow a bareback? Sounds like a rare one? Lol Depending on what’s going on with the 656 , the 706 will most likely be a cheaper fix lol
  17. I would agree. Not sure yet if I’m gonna leave those on there or look for like an 11L15.
  18. Thank you! It needs a few things but overall it’s pretty straight and mechanically is good.
  19. I definitely agree lol. I mean whenever we move something like that we always do our best to be careful and make sure everything is secure but some guys get just a little too picky lol. And thank you!
  20. Oh yeah? If that 4586 had a 903 in it I would be for sure asking for more details on it. Definitely would be curious as to what they would want but between just buying this one and after all the work I just did on redoing the 806 probably should let the bank account rebuild a little lol
  21. Hey that sounds like a good way to handle it! We all have to have some kind of vice. I’m not married yet but If my future wife ever gives me grief I will definitely remind her of her spendy clothes or other things like that lol.
  22. You might want to take the tank out and have someone clean it out. And I would highly recommend putting one of those strainers in the bottom of the tank that kind of stick up right and filter the fuel before it comes into the sediment bowl. I remember when I bought the 806 from my uncle it had been sitting for a number of years and after we put fresh gas in it there was a lot of junk in that tank and it was always giving us a hard time and pretty much exactly the problems you’re describing. I eventually took it to a radiator guy and he opened the tank and cleaned it out really good and sealed it back up and then we installed that strainer and I’ve never had any problems since.
  23. I probably could’ve did a fourth one but it was pretty well secured and we were both confident that it wasn’t going anywhere and it rode comfortably the whole way home. That however sounds like a recipe for disaster for sure I mean it’s not that hard to at least throw one over it even if you’re only going a few miles.
  24. Definitely agree with that!! I realize it costs money to not only keep the tractors going but when you do a full-blown restoration that adds up quick. That being said I know people that have boats and it’s unreal what they spend on fuel in one summer alone. It was funny when I brought this one home, a friend of mine said oh like you need another one! My reply was I don’t drink or gamble or smoke so what else is left in life besides collecting ih tractors? ?
