  1. Ok thanks. Yea that makes sense if one is wider than the other. I live 20 miles from the farm and was only glancing at it yesterday.
  2. Do you know when you set your crossbar measurement why it matters what category of hitch you have?. If I remember right, there was 3 inches of difference between a category 2 or 3 hitch
  3. Thank you. Yes he has that manual and that's how I'm gonna set it up. I have t heard a great reason why he sets it up the way he does. His neighbor does the same thing with the pins but has the cross bar lengthened all the way out to the right side. In a way I'm asking why they might do it that way. He makes it sound like that's just how they've always done it.
  4. Ok thanks. That sounds in line with what the manual says. I think when he set his three point hitch to compensate for the plow hitch being level that he may have set the wrong side higher. He was Messing with it a couple years ago trying to get it to work better in frost
  5. Yes I did t think of it. I'll take one when I'm out there again
  6. I get the right and left but said driver and passenger because I thought it may help with confusion about what people consider right and left side. Anyway, the pins being in different holes would make more sense if they were opposite of what they are so it levels the plow when right tire is in furrow instead of dropping it more
  7. I'm the very proud new owner of a 1969 1256. I bought it to add to the collection but also want to use it some. My dad has 5-18" and 4-18" 720 in furrow plows. I'm gonna plow with the 4-18" this fall. His plow hitches are set with the mounting pins in a way that doesn't make sense to me. On the plow hitch, He has the passenger side pin set in the higher hole and the drivers side pin set in the lower hole. Also the passenger side three point arm is 1/4" lower. If I understand the manual correctly it looks like the three point arms should be level and the pins set in the same hole on hitch, either upper or lower. Im thinking maybe in the past they may have ran the pins on the hitch opposite of what they are and adjusted the three point arms to level it. At least that's the only sense I can make of it
  8. So, if remember right an 806 has a 2 3/4" manifold pipe coming up. What would be the correct size straight pipe to put on there?
  9. If I remember what I read correctly, as well as being wider, the block of the V-8 wasn't strong enough to be structural like the inline engines so they had to build a different frame to support it.
  10. Thanks. Yes I'm sure I could use another anchor for it. I think I can angle one to where the steps bolt on. I looked up the shear strength of a 3/4" grade 8 bolt and it's much stronger than I thought. That's not factoring in bouncing though. Again more worried about the casting.
  11. I was wondering how much weight is safe to hang on my mid weight bracket for pulling. I have 1 grade 8 bolt on each side and belly bar is bolted to drawbar underneath to keep it from swinging. Can this bracket hold 1200 pounds (600 on each side) or is it too much risk that I may crack the housing? If it is I'll make a new one.
  12. That was me this last weekend installing new firming points on my dads planter! I had to grind on a 9/16" ratchet wrench to get to the bolt that loosens them. It went way better after I accepted how much I had to take off to change them and got a routine though
  13. I have a narrow front 806 that I bought instead of that 706 two years ago, except with flat tops. I'm glad I did because I'm having a lot of fun pulling with it now. 😎
