  1. I know you will all be shocked but put me on a open station 66 series and I am in heaven. If the weather is fit there is nothing I would rather drive.
  2. That is a 16 row 7000 planter! Saddle tanks and a full rack of weights! Sweet!
  3. Dad bought this off the local dealer when a neighbor traded it for a new early 1086 in 1977. It’s has filled many roles it’s years on the farm and spend it’s time dragging the box scraper around mostly. I remember it doing a little plowing, pulling wagons. Pulling a 8 row cyclo, cultivating row crops mowing and about anything else but it was never the big dog. Still have the canvas IH heat houser for it although I am not sure of its condition anymore.
  4. The CNH decals are still the best I have found for the early 66’s.
  5. The tapered axle pin with the block and grease zerk work very well.
  6. Looks great Dan! One of these years I will load up an come see you!
  7. No tractor driving today. First day in a while when no tires rolled, just about got everything done and the weather has changed. Book work and errands the order of the day.
  8. Done with tillage. Rain tomorrow so just in time. Wish I had more to plow and more weather to do it.
  9. Finished up with the chisel plows today and back to moldboard plowing this evening.
  10. Still chisel plowing. Tomorrow should wrap it up.
  11. Got started chisel plowing at sun up. Caught my friends Quad Track and 875 ripper sitting in the field next to where I was working so I had to take a pic and send him. He has a few 66’s too so he liked it. Got my 440 4-16’s out of the shed and used it for the first time. Hooked up the 73 1066 to the 710 5-16s. Good day!
  12. Been running the batwing during the day and chisel plowing in the evenings.
