  1. Had no idea they did these , like I said I have never seen it before . They must of done them around the 15,000 sn because both tractors are in that range ,15,610 and 15,997. Danny
  2. One of my IH friends sent me this tonight , it’s the factory frame rail on his original 1066 . I have been doing this stuff for most of my life and I have never seen a frame rail like this before 🤔 Danny
  3. Wow Matt 😳👍😎 you and the boys hit it out of the park , that looks fantastic 👍look like my old 10 I sold in 2015 Danny
  4. I would recommend a Miller , my Esab gave me a lot of trouble and had to send it in 3 times for repair and I am not a a commercial welder . Spend as much money fixing as I paid for it , sold it at the online auction and got 50.00 less than I paid for it new and bought the Miller . Get one from your welding supplier so you have service and help if you need it . Danny
  5. He would like me to put a turbo on the 886 this summer not to go plowing with it just so it has a little air pressure in the manifold . His dad has a tractor just like it back in the day and they sold it on the retirement auction and they had a turbo on it and it gained 20 hp and really cleaned things up as a chore tractor . I told him , no problem , I’m your man pressurizing manifolds 😉 I have always liked those D 360 motors and have been around them since they were new and there just the best little brother to the 400 series 👍😎 806 man , that side of the bolt bid is the wall of sh
  6. Here is his 1486 planting tractor that’s all original 👍😎 He takes really good care of his stuff as you can see 😊 ‘Danny
  7. It has the round mechanical driven tach , now I will have to check that number again so I can check it . ‘Danny
  8. I put that cardboard on the left side so the -40 windchill doesn’t blow on the fuel lines , it works really good , I have done this for years , no fun putting fuel filters on out in a field 😳 ‘I don’t know when the brake was in the sn for the 358/360 , this one is a 1978 tractor I think , I forgot to look at the number . ‘Those splitting stands are the best I have ever used and especially when your a one man show 👍 Danny
  9. This is one of my customers new to him 886. He just bought this from our local Case IH dealership and had it delivered to my shop and have me install LED lights , clean it up nice fix a couple things . He has a smaller dairy farm and it will be his daily chore tractor , box spreader, move bales , grind feed . The tach shows 3234 hours but the tach cable was bad and the guy that traded it in said it had approx 5000 hours . I ended up up putting a new clutch in it , went to grease the throw out bearing and found the live power shaft about to strip out and upgraded it to a 14” flywheel so he now
  10. 5140 is a very nice tractor and if it’s mfd I would take that over the 3688. 5240 has the 5.9 Cummins , 4 speed powershift , very good hyd system and I’d PFc system, really nice cab with great visibility. Danny
  11. I can bring my D 6 N LGP there 👍 a guy needs to cut through the wash board , it don’t work to push dry loose dirt in the wash boards . My dad worked for the secondary roads dept in my home town area and my nephew is a grader operator in the same area . Those two guys have always been willing to tell me how they fix stuff like this . The best way to fix a road like your dealing with it’s to wait until it’s wet /just after a good rain , cut it out and get it all bladed back up with the correct crown and it will pack down and wash boards will go away . Then tell the guy to only touch it up after
  12. Yep , you can thank George Sorows for this , he is buying one of the gun company’s and shutting it down . So the communist people stop gun the ammunition production so it won’t do you a lot of good to have a gun with no shells 😳 well I have plenty of both 👍 ‘Danny
  13. If you have no choice and have to use one of those kits I would recommend you take it to a machine shop and have them install the sleeves then check for roundness , fit the pistons , and put them at the wide end of the spec , check ring gap , measure all the pistons and plastigage all the bearings if you choose to use there’s . I personally would get the bearings from a USA MFG , there’s are terrible quality, they comes banged up the notches are misaligned so when the bearing is in the rod or block the outside of the bearings don’t line up . Absolutely don’t use the gaskets , get them from OEM
  14. There is nothing wrong with the Deere loader , if I wasn’t running my Cat I would run the Deere , they make a very tough machine . You only want the machine with the dozer under carriage, hyd disconnect coupler and a plastic glass door . When you get the used loader make sure you change all the fluids and use OEM filters , tip the cage up was from top to bottom . Inspect all the hoses and any rub marks , replace the hose and I always put pieces of heater hose and zip ties any place one hose will lay or rub on another hose , this will save you a lot of trouble down the road . There are some aft
  15. The C series Cat I’d really good , I would tell you to look at a 289C or 299C , mine is crowding 3000 hours , other than the hoses been a great machine . We are going to pull the motor and replace the plastic drive plate just for safety so it don’t strip out when I’m out on a job someday . I use it hard when I’m on job sites , we push windrows with it with a 12 ft bucket that’s 2ft high and 2ft deep , I also move snow with it , brush hog , grapple bucket , broom , pallet forks , 10 ft grain drill , land plane , 10 ft disk . The thing will pickup just under 5000lbs ‘For the tracks 1500 to
