     The rails could be fixed, welded. the hole in the block maybe braised. are the internals hurt? I probaly missed something here but come from the old school where anything can be fixed

    Looks repairable to me. Are those holes low enough to be below the water jacket? If so for a using tractor I sure wouldn't be afraid to try and weld it up. After all it's useless as it sits, what are you out throwing some weld at it. I've had excellent luck welding cast in the past. Frame rails are an easy fix.

    Son in law works for home depot in the tool rental dept. Told me some horror stories about people renting equipment and trying to haul a gas post hole digger in a Prius. That is just the tip of the iceberg. Tries to make suggestions and gets shot down because people know more than he does about loading things.


    You should see what my boss hauls in his Prius. He pulled down by my shop one day and asked us to help unload a bucket. Walk over to the Prius and he opens the lid and there is a 4 or 5 foot loader bucket in there. Another time we had to unload an extra heavy set of leaf springs for a fertilizer spreader truck.

    Neat but what was the extremely limited audience goal in TS.....overall (waste) cost...?

    I know cidiot fair pays the bills,but when at this meeting ask him to add a farm section in the far back corner,and a 10 year old that can actually work the computer/phone and actually order some farm items ,tractor parts etc  not will not fit china %^#$^& that does not take 6 weeks or cost $$$$$ shipping

    It probably had to do with them being present at the stock exchange today. I was at his Mothers earlier discussing fertilizing some pasture tomorrow for her and she was really excited to show me pictures of her son at the NYSE. Tractor Supply is just following the money like every other chain farm store. I don't have one nearby to shop at.

  4. Appears to be a Marten. American Pine Marten maybe. I used to live in Northeast Nebraska and I watched our dogs kill one. I had to research it to figure out what it was. Only one I ever saw. I know they dogs sure let out a yelp when it latched on to their lips.

  5. If you are referring to a pto on 06-boxcar magnum then I just work them on with a straight pick. They will stretch but that's ok. I use a hose clamp to shrink them back down. I usually put this on first and then work on the rest o the unit while those are shrinking back up. Just be careful when you start tightening the hose clamp that the ring slips down in the groove. They will cut pretty easy when the hose clamp cinches down.

  6. I guess I'm the minority. I own mostly Craftsman tools. 90% of them are old enough to be USA made still. I make a living with my tools and even before I did I used them alot. I've had one ratchet rebuilt. It is a long handle 1/2" drive that has been used for things it shouldn't be. I've never had an issue with with warranty until I broke an 11/16 swivel socket 2 years ago. They no longer made them so they gave me a universal and 11/16 socket. I will say it sure sucks getting anything warranted now. Sears stores are few and far between now. If they have the tool it's made in China. I don't buy Craftsman much anymore. Snap On truck comes into work but the prices are too out of line. Im not going into debt to pay for tools. Certain tools I only buy high quality but others work well as cheap ones. I've been buying some Harbor Freight and have had good luck so far. Just have to be careful with what you buy.

    Not something I wanted to hear... could you elaborate? 

    I work on quite a few CNH balers as we have sold more Case IH balers than any other dealer in Missouri the last couple years. They did screw up some things on the newest series balers. Mostly to do with the twine system and hay buildup in the belts. I have done the updates on several balers and anything built in 2017 on has all of those issues addressed. Our customers all seem to be happy with their red balers. We have an RB454 out there that see's a lot of baleage and never has the choppers knives retracted. Has had several rocks crushed in it as well and has held up well. I wouldn't hesitate on a CNH baler but I know them well. I will say that a NH 688 is probably the best one NH ever built. I completely overhauled one last year and they have no intentions of trading it.

    Been there plenty. That town hasn’t changed much at all. Cool pics.  They used to buy up a lot of old iron and repaint them and make them pretty nice. Do you ever get in on that deal?

    About the only thing changed is the bridge and highway moved. We don't do much of the fix up and sell anymore. Gets too expensive I think.

    Thanks for sharing the scenic pictures------I can almost feel the silence and tranquility all the way down here in Mississippi.

    Are these your horses-----or an outfitters?  Just wondering how the horses would adapt to the high altitude.

    I have friends that elk hunt each fall in the high elevations of New Mexico.  They work out hard here at home-----so to cope with the thinner air.



    They are our horses. They are the two highlined in the camp picture as well. We intended on riding a lot prior to heading up there but it didn't happen. We were a little worried about them adjusting to altitude but they did great. Had tons of energy. Cool air helped a lot I think. We rode about 60 miles those 5 days. Would have had a few more miles but the wife wasnt feeling good the last day. 

  10. The Wife and I finally got to take our trip to the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming. We left the little one at home with grandparents and spent 5 days horseback. Weather was great sure beat Missouri heat and humidity. Rode through some pretty country and will definitely go back there. Camped at 9200 feet and rode up to 10600 and down to about 7700. Saw some elk and a lot of mule deer.

  11. Yes that is where the clutch is activated.  If everything is moving externally it is possible you have sheared the roll pin holding the throw out bearing fork on the shaft. Number 25 in the diagram. Otherwise it may be the fingers on the pressure plate.

  12. My Wife's Dad's side has a big one every 4 years. It is from her Grandparents all the way down to the great great grandkids. We had 79 present this year with 5 absent. This year the second from the youngest son hosted it at the family farm. Everything was farm themed. Had a carnival for the youngin's, games, bar, and water slide. It is a 2 day event and everyone has a great time. People from all walks of life having a good time.

  13. There are more tractors out there like that or worse than you think. I had an 806 come in one day needing repairs done to the range shift cover. Left rear cast center was broke around a previous weld, engine had a terrible knock, right front tire wouldn't stay up, loader valve mounted upside down so everything was unnatural and a bunch of little stuff. I was only allowed to address the shifting problem. He didn't want anything else fixed.

    ISO bus is a common plug for implements that require a monitor and instead of using indidvidual monitors for each piece of equipment the ISO bus allows the equipment to utilize a single monitor in the tractor. All information should be stored on the balers ECU not on the monitor did the baler have an electrical issue and the ECU replaced? Why would dealer remove the PTO shaft are they a big theft item?

    At the dealer I work out we remove pto shafts and top links on used machinery. Theft and the element are our reasons.

  15. I just realized after talking to a salesman here at the dealership that this tractor was from only a few miles away from me. He had known about and just never mentioned it. If I would have known about it I would have liked to have seen it before it left the area. Sure is a small world.
