  1. Is your dog helpful?

    My dog helps all the time. When I open the gate to give the cows a bale of hay, he watches the gate and doesn't let anything past him. When I open a gate to try to chase the cows through the gate, he doesn't let anything through .
  2. Has anyone been able to do any field work

    Last two weekends we've had 8" snows and are expecting one again tomorrow. Haven't gotten anything out of the shed yet. Today I started the Steiger and let it run for a while just because I wanted to listen to it run.
  3. K&M door cylinder

    I like that the k&m kit allows the door to open past 90 degrees. It makes getting in the tractor a lot easier.
  4. Jay Leno Drives a Quadtrack

    don't get me wrong, I only farm a couple hundred acres, but if i farmed 5,000+ acres I wouldn't want to tackle it with only a 2294.
  5. Jay Leno Drives a Quadtrack

    Just think what you're getting done in that hour though. Getting a lot of acres done in an hours time.
  6. Front tire size to go with 15.5-38

    My uncle had a 560 with 15.5's on back and 9.5Lx15's on front. It looked good.
  7. 7120 magnum accumulators

    I felt violated by my dealer when I took them in to be charged. $190 for 10 minutes "work". $10 for each for the nitrogen and the rest was labor. Try to find an independent mechanic to do it.
  8. 5140 vs 5240

    maybe it was there but it didn't work. I told them that it would be nice if it had an audible warning and they said they'd look into what it would take to do it and when they delivered it, it was in there.
  9. 5140 vs 5240

    I've got a 5140 and I like it. Parking brake was gone on mine when I went to look at it. You have to split the tractor to fix it if it's a fwa. The dealer split the bill with me to put it in. I also had them put a beeper in the system so it would beep at you when you put it in gear if the park brake when on. Before that there was just a light on the dash. Later in the 52 series they got a neutral in the shuttle. They increased the HP by 10 or so. They got a glass panel on the bottom of the door instead of steel.
  10. Weight/rock boxes

    These were made by a local welding shop 40 years ago. 1/4' steel and the front hinges open to empty.
  11. Case IH Cyclo 800 planter questions and parts

    Yup, the last couple years I planted with it the thing quit alternating the markers. I pulled the fuse out and the thing clicked. When I tried it again the other marker went down. I finished out the day taking the fuse out and in to switch markers. Never did find out what was wrong. wired a on/off switch into the power wire or the ground wire(can't remember which). Get to the end and flip the switch off/on and go.
  12. Case IH Cyclo 800 planter questions and parts

    I never read through all of the responses and I don't know if the 6-rows are the same as the 8 row planters, but the 8 row we had, you needed an electrical box of some sort that would alternate the markers. It wouldn't switch from one marker to the other without it. It's been a while, I can't remember for sure if either would work without this box.
  13. IH 684 - Water in oil again

    German Diesel engines have o-rings under the sleeves that will start to leak. That would be my guess.
  14. Case 94 vs IH 50 Series

    I've heard that they had David Brown lineage too. I have a 5140 and like it a lot. They do have some little problems though. One hydraulic pump that runs everything is one of my hang-ups. Push the clutch in and it disrupts the flow at outlets, the steering and I think the pto.
  15. 884

    Not sure where the serial # is. Brakes can be a problem on these. Anything from bad seals or o rings to a little plastic tube that slides down in the reservoir( a problem I've had. cheap fix but was hard to find). I've had to replace the clutch on my 685 once. People say they go through them quite often.
  16. Super bowl add

    yup, saw that comin'
  17. Super bowl add

    I read one the computer this morning that no-one knelt.... and if I hear dilly-dilly one more time I'm gonna wanna punch something.
  18. Pictures of the TRX and other IHC prototypes

    I think that was a 3688, maybe the one in the first picture.
  19. How much was that??

    Last fall I took the shift accumulators off my 7140 and took them to the dealer to have them charged. When I payed the bill I felt violated. It cost just under $200 for 15 minutes of "work".
  20. Your opinions - 3 point on a C

    I've never had anything hanging off the back that made the frontend light. It's not like it's a 80 horse tractor.
  21. Your opinions - 3 point on a C

    Here's a little 2 row planter I threw together for it.
  22. Your opinions - 3 point on a C

    I have one on my C. I built a little 35 gallon 3 pt. sprayer for it and got a cheap 3 pt mower to put behind it. If you put a mower behind it, get a overriding pto adaptor to put on it. Like was previously stated, it's not meant to lift heavy stuff but works for what I've done.
  23. What to look for on a 5240 Case IH

    check the parking brake. Have to split the fwa tractors to fix.
  24. I dare you

    I wanna get this challenge started..... The send cash to Mnredfarmer challenge.
