  1. i put larsens lights on my 5288, 3688 and 1620. been very happy with all of them. i added a 2nd one on the unload auger. really lights up the the wagons. will be putting led in the grain tank. hoping to get a camera mounted to watch the grain tank as well. Duane
  2. Bill, thanks for the pictures! i greatly appreciate it!! Duane
  3. how did you attached the bracket around the steering shaft? any pictures?? Thanks!
  4. i have an 3688 and 5288. l've been looking into adding auto steer to these tractors. looked at wheelman and trimble. i currently use an ez 500 so trimble would be one way to go. i like the wheelman as i can move it between the tractors. however both tractors have tilt steering and from what i understand these systems won't work with tilt steering. no place to mount the brackets is my understanding. might have to reengineer the bracket mounting area to make it work. i see some have went the hydraulic route. does someone offer a complete kit and instructions for that?? if not, that might be over my pay grade. lol so, what are my options and getting different tractors is not an option. lol thanks!!! Duane
  5. i used to own this one. traded it and my 966 on my 3688. really nice handy tractor but i like the cab a lot better. Duane
  6. what the torque spec for the oil pan bolts? 282D engine thanks!
  7. did ertl announce a new line of precision tractors? were any models released? thanks! Duane
  8. when i sell my tractors the weights and duals will be sold separately. none of my tractors i bought had them. had i bought tractors that came with duals and weights i would sell them together. that's my reasoning. fwiw
  9. my 1981 has the tall levers. fwiw
  10. I have 40x40x16 shop that I just converted my 8' t-12's to led. I used these lights. they are very bright and easy to by pass the ballast. i put the other lights over my work bench which is under my loft. i also install a couple of led lights that are on a motion detector by the entrance door.

  11. Jim, i do not remember what dealer i used. i remember doing a search of European dealers. i pick one from the united kingdom. i looked around the web site and could not find anything about the dealer that i picked. sorry i can't be of more help. good luck! Duane
  12. when i went to login to the next generations parts website, a pop up screen came up with instructions and a link to download that harmon browser. try login in as you normally do and see if you get those instructions. this link might help too. https://www.mycnhistore.com/ngpc hth Duane
  13. i signed up for the next generation parts group several years ago. at that time it was the same thing the dealers used. it was very difficult to get my account set as you had to pick a foreign dealer. i ended up using one from england. i thought i would not be able to access that site anymore. i just went there and found out that if i downloaded a browser called harmon that i could access it again. after doing that i was able to logon just like i always did. i have access to all parts numbers again. hopefully they will get numbers back on their new parts site. fwiw Duane
  14. i bought light kits for my 3688, 5288 & 1620 from larson lights. very happy with them. Larsen Lights, LED lights for your equipment !. IH 1086/1486/1586 LED light kit led's are well worth the cost. good luck!
  15. I bought the lower cab kit for my 5288 a few years back. it fit good and looks good. i was happy with it.
  16. whether you use a muffler or not on an open station tractor, always use hearing protection. it's just stupid not too. started wearing them in the early 80's, starting with h, m, 560. continued with the 966 and 686. wish i had started 10 years early. i even wore them when i ran my 715 that had a cab and muffler. first thing i did to my 3688 and 5288 was to put the muffler eliminator. cab is still very quite no need for them there. I always wear them on in the shop too. jmho Duane
  17. we added a work saver 3 pt hitch to our 560. here are some pictures how we plumbed it. plus how we ran dual remotes to the rear and how the loader was plumbed in. picture 12 doesn't show it but we had a set of tees to run lines to the remote and to hook the loader lines to. to use the loader we had to tie that remote ahead. overall it work great. was nice to have 2 remotes out the back. these pictures only shows one, had to rob one and put it on the 966. when the 686 showed up the 560 was tired.

  19. I put a turbo on my 966 some 25 years ago. the first thing I did, on the advice of the mechanic, was to drill out the upper cooling jets when he overhauled the engine. on the non turbo engine blocks those jets are not drilled out. this will help with the cooling of the engine. then a few years later the turbo was added. he modified the fuel tank and the hood for the new location of the exhaust. I would encourage you to get a pyrometer to monitor your exhaust gas temps. nothing was done to air cleaner other then cutting a hole and putting a cover it so the filter could be service without removing the hood. we didn't go crazy on the hp. ended up at 125 which helped. we did go to the 6 blade fan and I think a different oil pump. I can't swear to the oil pump. kept the tractor for 25 years without any problems. good luck! Duane
  20. I still use 5 gallon buckets along with my shop vac. shop vac holds the hy-tran to allow switching buckets and not make a mess. works pretty slick. jmho
  21. I stopped using salt 35+ years ago. it was difficult a first. didn't really take all that longer to adjust. to me food taste better without salt. I do use pepper. I used to salt my popcorn, but I use a microwave popper and salt doesn't stick to the popcorn unless you use butter. as with any lifestyle change you have to want to make the change. I finally wanted to loose weight and have lost 100 lbs over the last few years. btw you can loose weight during the winter months if you want too. btdt. good luck! Duane
