  1. Thanks, Dale. We had no problems at all with that 820 flex head. The hydraulic cable controlled float system worked great....we always took the cable off and kept it in the shop when not in use and the header went in the barn. We used an SCH knife system with every other section upside down and the stamped steel guards, and even a worn out knife always cut great. This one replaced an equally nice 815 that plugged in tough beans one night and ruined the walkers and cranks. The cleaning air worked better in the 815, was easier to set, and the chopper had a better spread, but the 915 had the power to push the 20' in beans even when we had a bad ragweed problem before the days of Roundup Ready beans. The big treaded steer tires were awesome! They allowed the wheels to keep turning in soft ground, so you could still steer it straight.
  2. We had a real nice '76 model until we quit farming 10 years ago. Sold it to a customer of mine that needed a combine, and it's still going today with the 20' 820 grain table and 4 row wide corn head.
  3. Aviation fuel and high octane racing gas are all fine and dandy if your engine can burn it efficiently. The higher the octane rating, the higher compression needed to properly burn it. Old low compression engines are more efficient and run much better on a mid grade fuel. The trick is to try and find the cleanest and lowest ethanol fuel in your area and go with that. There was at one time a website that listed all of the fuel brands and their ethanol content. A little bit of liquid "Sea Foam" Brand fuel conditioner in each fuel tank does wonders.
  4. One of my YouTube followers is looking for part numbers for the oil filters on his UD-18. He asked for a Wix or NAPA number, but even an IHC number would help. Thanks.
  5. Dang! I missed the news too...His mother or MIL was in the nursing home here in town, so he stopped by to see me a couple of times...even brought me some parts for my 560D. Great and very smart guy! RIP
  6. Elden "Duke" Denning passed away recently after a short bout of cancer. He was a member of the Red Power Forum since we started chatting on the very first board in the mid 90s. We always had a great time catching up every year when we met at the National Threshers in Wauseon, Ohio and other shows. His brothers said that he was in good spirits as always right up to the end and said "don't feel sorry for me, I've had a good life". His smile and fun loving personality were infectious to all that had the privilege of being in his company. R.I.P. old friend! https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/name/elden-denning-obituary?pid=193439901
  7. Yes. Quickest, easiest test. If it was an internal high pressure relief valve or check valve you would have at least one direction. The foot-n-inch valve dumps the pilot circuit to both relief valves. Capping the line and valve makes the system think that the valve is closed.. Or in normal operation, clutch pedal "up"
  8. Go somewhere and get an 04 sized JIC fitting plug and cap. Take one line off of the foot-n-inch valve and plug the line and cap the fitting. this eliminates that valve. There is a pintle inside that is actuated by a heavy spring. they will break unexpectedly. I just fixed a 656 that did the exact thing.
  9. He mentioned someone with 20 to 30 years experience. I started in 1994, so that's 25. Is that sufficient for you?
  10. MY glaring disrespect? It was YOU who wished there was a professional on this board that would chime in. Guess what, bud, I have 20-30 years of experience in my own field with my own shop. I have no idea who you claim that I "slapped". Every damn time one of us full time licenced tradesmen give a straight forward answer to a question on here there is a whole gang that jumps aboard saying "that's not how my neighbor's barber's brother does it"
  11. Does your requirement for a professional with the teaching credentials apply to all technical questions on this forum? Should those of us who thought we were professionals produce copies of our credentials before posting replies? You know what they say, those who can, do. Those who can't teach. Pretty soon there won't be a full time licenced and trained mechanic left on this forum. Hope you are good with your wiki. Smell ya later.
  12. Pinion shaft/gear cannot be removed without removing axle housing.
  13. Get a Farmall 140, they will fly down the road! or do what I always wanted to do: put a 140 transmission in a B or BN.
  14. It was introduced in years since 134, hence my "more modern" comment. "Endorsed by green peace and environmentalists"? Well, it was Lorenzo that was concerned about ODP with the old R12. If you are worried about something being flammable then you had better stick to electric vehicles. .....outlawed? Don't really care. It works.
