    So you don't think you need CaCl in your tires? LOL

    Actually I run 7 sets on tractors for weight, and at 150 ish pounds per circle it works out to over 1000 pounds per tire. It really helps on the loader tractor, as well as for tillage, and I have the option to strip the weight off when not needed.

    686 article in RP Mag??

    I’ve never seen a 1000 shaft in a 6 either, but it is in every manual as an option.

    886 vs 986

    Nothing wrong with the 360- it’s just as reliable and rebuildable as the bigger engines. And it would respond to a turbo equally well, too!

    What would you do?

    A 706 standard might not be a common tractor, but it also isn’t highly desirable. Honestly, other than the 1456 and the 66 series it really doesn’t appear that standards are more valuable than a row crop. There is a decent market on 1206 standards, but even still a rowcrop in general is worth more.

    Opening up a d-312

    I finally got the overhaul kit for my 686, and I’m tearing it all the way down now. What all can I open up to clean and clear all passages for oil and coolant? I’d really prefer not to have a plug cause me to do this again!

    Opening up a d-312

    That’s what I was worried about.

    Opening up a d-312

    I was just wondering if there was anything hiding that could be opened up. I got the sleeves out late yesterday, and like you said it seems much more open than I expected.

    Security Guard Would Rather Film Than Help Police

    A certain demographic has been convinced that it is perfectly acceptable to resist arrest, so long as someone gets video of a cop beating you. And with everyone having a camera in their pocket, you are almost guaranteed to get filmed.

    Truck cab interchange

    Another truck we run with has the split window, but that’s the only one. He also has a shorter hood and a pretty massive transmission hump inside the cab

    Truck cab interchange

    I’ve got a 1987 ih 2574 as a silage truck. It runs and drives good, but the cab is rusted out bad. Is the cab the same as other models like 1854? And what years interchange? I’ve tossed around the idea of a completely different truck, but with that comes all the unknowns of a different truck. Plus I really like my live pto.

    Opening up a d-312

    Gasket scrapings is my primary concern. I just figured if I could open up as much as possible it would sure be easier to drain!

    Truck cab interchange

    Where are you guys measuring the cab? Measuring seems to be the obvious solution to know, but without two trucks side by side I'd like to have a starting point.

    New joke

    The phone rings. “Hello, Senor Rod? This is Ernesto, the caretaker at your country house.” “Ah yes, Ernesto. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?” “Um, I am just calling to advise you, Senor Rod, that your parrot – he is dead.” “My parrot? Dead? The one that won the International competition?” “Si, Senor, that’s the one.” Damn! That’s a pity! I spent a small fortune on that bird. “What did he die from?” “From eating the rotten meat, Senor Rod.” “Rotten meat? Who the **** fed him rotten meat?” “Nobody, Senor. He ate the meat of the dead horse.” “Dead horse? What dead horse?” “The thoroughbred, Senor Rod.” “My prize thoroughbred is dead?” “Yes, Senor Rod, he died from all that work pulling the water cart.” “Are you insane?? What water cart?” “The one we used to put out the fire, Senor.” “Good Lord!! What fire are you talking about, man???” “The one that destroyed your house, Senor! A candle fell and the curtains caught on fire.” “What the ****?? Are you saying that my mansion is destroyed because of a candle??!!” “Yes, Senor Rod.” “But there’s electricity at the house!! What was the candle for?” “For the funeral, Senor Rod.” “WHAT BLOODY FUNERAL??!!” “Your wife’s, Senor Rod. She showed up very late one night and I thought she was a thief, so I hit her with your new Taylor Made Super Quad 460 golf club.” SILENCE……….. LONG SILENCE……… “Ernesto, if you broke that golf club, you’re in deep trouble!!!”

    Antique pull rant.

    He probably had the pto set to slip. I think some of those moline four bangers can run hd800 jugs. I know case has a four banger that will do 640. I never understood why why someone would spend big bucks to get power- whether 150 on an antique or 500 on a 1066- and then run it in a slow class against stock tractors. You paid for the hp, enjoy the speed!

    dairy herd sales ?

    I’m not surprised. I’ve heard of two larger dairies looking to sell. One is around 300 and is not chopping corn this year. The other is closer to 5 or 600 and is having conflicts within the family that owns/runs it.
