  1. Looking GOOD! Tony I'm like Smoker1, If I came down and walked around the baler once, I would walk out the door with at least half your dirt/grease attached to me!!!! Keep up the good work!!
  2. If I had found it around here, I'd get it for the pump, injectors, and head..... Oh, I would pick it up for any parts for my 350 UT D.
  3. It's suprising how different area's get their rain! Our OFFICIAL NOAA weather forecast for today is "10% chance of sprinkles"!!!!!!!!!!!
  4. Hadn't heard about the fires, but did hear about your record setting high temp's. Your skeeders will have to start carrying water tanks to keep cool! Are some of these fires going to be put out by the first snow fall?
  5. Looks Good! I have a little 19" IH "Lawnboy" similar to yours but either a little older, or a little newer. It just quit one day many years ago, I think no spark!? I'll be will be watching your thread to see how you are doing on finding parts. Thanks for the pictures! I'll take a picture of mine next February when I get the hay fed out of the barn!!!!
  6. Nice A C 66? Good Eye! Yes it is a 66 that I rebuilt. No small pull type IH's around here, so had to go with the Allcrop. Been cutting my heirloom wheat for the last 6 to 8 years behind the 350 ut. diesel.
  7. The newer wheats in this area do not roll over due to stiffer straw. We used to: first check for ANY green in the plants, if found-go home! second pick a head and put between your palms and do a rubbing/twisting movement, should thrash out in 4 or 5 movements, three blow the chaff off while changing hands with the seed, four bite several seeds to see that they are hard. If you can dent them, they are not ready yet. Here, the wheat is usually around 12 to 13 percent moisture when cut. People will like to start about the fourth, but it is usually two weeks latter. One neighbor told me that the winter wheat crop would have been excellent (due to perfect winter and early spring moisture) but that we did not get our early June rain, so will only be a good harvest. My little patch of hulless oats Comparison of what was ,and now with the neighbors combine.
  8. That's great! That would be very nice of your brother to fill in the current owner. Also running into something that he had worked on years ago!
  9. It's a 21, the 24's had two springs on the back. I do not remember what other numbers or letters were ahead of the 21. Looks like a 7 foot, I bought 2 sickles for dad's 24 about 10 years ago from Case ih no problem. Looks like you need a pitman and a few guards also, be the same as 24.
  10. Mike when I saw that first pic I thought that it had been double exposed! Quite a comparison, bigger is not always better! One of my uncles managed a highway construction bisness, he said that there was always a "Catipillar" only thing going on! His input was: if in rock, put in the "Cats" if in soil or soil/rock put in the "IH's", they would run circles around the Cats! I see about your Hitachi, ground doesn't look to be the most stable. At least the operator is on the oposent side from the rocks coming down...…. down hill side...… front row seat when it starts sliding!!!!!! Looks like maybe you were heading for the base of the second outcropping! I take it that you made it! Great pic's, Love em!!!
  11. There are spots of white and around the international, it does not have the center stainless bar, but the clincher is that there is a paint difference where the 650 emblem was. When the second pic is lightened, there is some white on the grill..... This one will not be hard to strip the paint1
  12. Jim I hope you are right. I adjusted the light on the one pic and see a complete power steering drag link strapped to the deck, so maybe. He's got the international scrip booth sides and booth of the radiator stainless bars, but missing the 650 booth sides. I would take it the way that it is, would fit in next to my 600 real well!
  13. Great pic's Mike! It took me three loads to get them to all to come up, but I would have done it ten times to see these!!! I see by the two road pic's that you have plenty of experience doing that work. Excellent grade!!!! Is that hill side an old burn? Like the 91, wish mine looked that good. Thanks again for the post!
  14. I just dropped my third field of hay this morning. Plugged up the old 990 four times. The side hill part of the field was exstreamlly heavy with grass where it got ahead of the alfalfa. Weather forcaster is now saying in the 90's Sunday! PLEASE take some of this weather, I will trade anyone straight across for a little rain and cooler days!!!!!
  15. Same as PMS but 5 hrs. east. High 70's into low 80's by Friday. Dropped my first hay today after starting second irrigation system. Haying here usually starts at the other end of May!
