  1. I just got done with this project today , took out about 1 acre of trees , cleaned it at up with the land plane and seeded it with the old trusty IH 620 drill that we converted to use on my skidloader . The land plane just got its 3 reinforcement job , that skidloader is just plane mean on it ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I took it to another job this afternoon and did some finish work around a new pond I built and hit a cut off stump , it passed the test , Danny hit the front window /plastic ๐Ÿ˜ณ all good ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š Danny
  2. Matt , I pre delivered the last new 1586 at our dealership that looked just like the one in the picture , our customer bought two that time , a new 786 open station and and the 1586 with western interior . Here is the best part of this story , the guy still has them and there sitting in the shed he built for them and there brand new and he gets them out a couple times a year and runs them and puts them back in the shed . He was all red on his farm and was retiring early and bought these as an investment Iโ€™m guessing was his plan , Iโ€™m thinking it was a good one ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž โ€˜Danny
  3. 4 of us built this track , along with more donated help with trucks hauling clay , donated road grader guy , the list is endless . At the end of the day we have a few sponsors so instead of 4 of us paying out of our own pocket to put these pulls on so everyone can have fun if we are lucky we break even ๐Ÿ˜ณ I have done a lot around this area to promote pulling and I really enjoy it and we are getting some of the girls pulling now and as you can see in the pictures there pulling the 10,500 lbs up ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž We have talked about having a tractor pulling training day to get more folks involved in pull
  4. The disk is a 10 ft IH wheel disk that we converted so I can push it , it works great , you can put down pressure on it and it really cuts . Be careful of the rocks , those old blades donโ€™t like that big skid loader , I will need to replace some blades . We have about 24โ€ of clay on this track and we have had guys tell me itโ€™s the best track around and itโ€™s as good if not better than most NTPA tracks . We run two packers and I run my skid loader with that 8 ft wide land plane that we built . The day before the pull we disk it open and water it it with a big tank with a pump and flood it pre
  5. Iโ€™m in charge of the dirt at our track so I run down to our track 3 miles from my shop and did alittle track maintenance yesterday, had to get rid of the winter weeds, people having to tear it up with there UTVs ๐Ÿค” We have 3 pulls on the books for this summer in Mazeppa MN /Mazeppa Days starting on July 11th our biggest pull . If any of you guys are close or far away we would love to have you come and pull , itโ€™s a two lane track with two sleds so we get it done from 10:00 to 3:00 last year we run 225 hooks through ๐Ÿ‘ Danny
  6. Thatโ€™s really cool , I have a smaller anvil and use it all the time . The mill would be handy but Iโ€™m not sure if I would use it enough , I do have a big machinist drill press that I can mill with if I want , just need to buy some tooling . Danny
  7. Make sure the sensor is adjusted correct , if I remember correct , turn it in all the way and back it 1 turn out . There is an ohm test , I can look that up if you need it . Danny
  8. I use soap from my powers washer guy , itโ€™s a degreasing type soap and I use 3000 lbs of hot water with a rotary tip ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž โ€˜Danny
  9. Looks great Matt , just hard to beat this stuff๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘ Danny
  10. Dirt Boyz Proving Grounds at your service ๐Ÿ˜Ž I will get my bag packed Tony ๐Ÿ‘ Do you have you got a distributor with points setup in it , try changing that out also do you have the metal wire spark plug wires ? Look inside the distributor cap and see if the rotor is riding to hard on the cap /coil contact area , I have seen the rotors donโ€™t fit down on the distributor like they should . Start it up and run it and put your Fluke Meter on the wire feeding the distributor from the coil and see how much power you have . I know there is different setup with those electric ignition setups . Is the hea
  11. Thank goodness my name didnโ€™t come up ๐Ÿ˜ณ Just so all of you know I was going to throw the towel in a few weeks back over one guy that was causing a lot of grief on here . But hereโ€™s the deal I enjoy helping you guys and that would be unfair to the rest of you over me getting upset with one bad apple . Most of you know that person is not on here anymore causing trouble so life goes on . โ€˜This is a really nice site , BJ and his team of folks keeping this all in order is a thankless job. Thanks to all of you and the forum members for keeping it all alive and well . โ€˜Danny
  12. Dang Billy , sorry to see this ๐Ÿ˜ณ That doggy would be dead if that happened to me !! I was bit as a kid and still to this day Iโ€™m very careful around dogs that donโ€™t know you . โ€˜Iโ€™m glad our guard dogs here at the Proving Grounds are much more calm and only kill on demand the way you trained them ๐Ÿ˜‚ Danny
  13. You need the drive gear and the adaptor that the pump mounts to on the back side of the front cover . A setup off a truck motor or a newer Ag application 466 with a inline pump is what you need . For pumps I have an extra P pump thatโ€™s all gone through open RPMโ€™s , it made 1140 hp on the dyno and also have some new Bosch MW pumps that would work on that same adaptor for the pump drive . For your injection lines you want .093 line and for injectors there are lots of options depending on fuel delivery , turbo size and rpms. Make sure when your building a puller you do all the safety stuff donโ€™t
  14. On the earlier tractors that return the fuel into the bottom of the tank I have been making a new line and returning the fuel into the top of the fuel tank . You can use soft copper line or steel brake line , drill a hole in the top front of the tank and tap it with 1/8โ€ tap then use compression style fitting to clamp to the new line . โ€˜the reason for this is back in the day when it was returned to the bottom of the tank the forgot about the weight of the fuel pushing back on the injection pump so itโ€™s harder to return the fuel when the tank is full . like the other guys are telling you
  15. Thanks for all the pictures Tony ๐Ÿ‘ The Red Kid deserves ever award it gets ๐Ÿ˜Ž Danny
