  1. I’d like to see pictures of the 1256!!!
  2. Go to a Mills Fleet Farm, or possibly Running’s, and get the cheaper version of the IH 3 piece cushion set. I picked up one from Mills Fleet Farm for my 1066, used the pleated bottom cushion, and got the back rest cushion, and upper back rest cushion, and brackets from K&M. This is the one I bought at Mills Fleet Farm!
  3. As far as I’m concerned, at $1050 was still a good buy if they were that nice!!
  4. That was my other reason for going. Were they nice straight, solid fenders?
  5. Go outside, problem solved! So put your faucet outside, and 2 problems solved!! 😬
  6. If anyone here buys Firestone ag tires, buy them early!!!! They need more cure time!!! We put a set on our 7250 3-4 years ago, they look like they have 5000 hours on them from stubble damage!! Was told Firestone doesn’t cure their tires as long as they use to any more!! So we are buying at least a year in advance, and every sunny day, they sit outside, and sun bathe!!! Just ordered 4, 620-70-42’s for our Steiger 385, those are getting the same treatment!! I have no idea how other manufacturers are on their tires, but Firestones definitely need more cure time!!
  7. Dang it!! I knew I was going to forget about that sale! I was planning on looking at the 806 in pieces, to try bring home for some parts. Guess that isn’t happening now! 🤣
  8. Was that the Heidelberger auction by North Branch??
  9. I’ll have to try find something at the hardware store when I go pick them up!
  10. Tore the brakes off the 1256 wheatland today, both inner friction discs came off the pistons from oil, what is a good adhesive to use, to adhere the new friction discs?
  11. Nice pictures! And even better looking dirt!!
  12. This is not what I wanted to see the internals look like. I just about parted it out, maybe still should, but I’m moving forward with it, and overhauling it!!
  13. I agree 100%!! If they are going to limit trucks to 60-63, cars should be 65-68!! Fair is fair!! No reason a car should have a speedometer with 160 mph on it, or a 1/2 ton pickup with 120 on the speedometer!! I will not comply with this stupid mandate!!
  14. Luckily no damage from the wind, but the storm that caused the damage to the south and west, still had enough wind to wake me up at 11:00 last night! I thought we were in a hurricane! I’ve never heard wind like that in all the storms over the years I thought were bad!! After 36 hours of rain, we are somewhere around 6-7 inches of rain!! Sounds like MN is predicting to be down 3 million acres of corn this year! This is my front yard this morning! One of our fields! Neighboring field! The only 38 acre field we have planted, that may need replanting?!
  15. I’m in the beginning stage of overhauling the 1256 wheatland I just purchased last summer! I can’t believe what a mess this engine is, for being a “good” running engine!! This is the engine that the crankshaft had 1 rod with a .010, and .020 bearing shell in number 2 rod! Well today I came to the decision for full overhaul! Nothing is going right, and I just keep going deeper, so overhaul it, and move on! My question is, how good are these pumps? Can I rebuild it myself, or get a reman? Seems that reman pumps lately are topics of poor workmanship, and being junk. Looking for some advice! Thank you! And here are some pictures! It would have never ran again without major failures! I pulled the head because somehow mice carried seed corn into the water jackets of the head, probably a sandwich bag full? And after stripping the block, and prepping for the machine shop, this came out of the block! Rust, and more seed corn! All but the gasket material came out of the block!!!!! 3 of the 6 pistons had slop in the sleeves, #3 piston tried to exit the sleeve, was no carbon on the upper right side of the sleeve, just wear marks, here’s #3 piston lifters were all pitted, and check out #1 intake lifter!! 😳 cam is shot, as well!! She’ll run like a dream when done! I hope!
  16. I’d love to have an M&W oil pan, but not for these prices!! 😳😳😳 Sad thing is, we had a very rough 1456 years ago, it had an M&W pan, but we weren’t smart enough to keep that pan when the tractor sold, just figured another one would show up. 😢
  17. Wow!! There are some dang nice old Peterbilts out in California!!! @Tonyinca and @DirtBoyz07, thank you for the pictures!! That looks like an amazing show, and show worth coming to California for!!!
  18. I used A&I with no issues on the first rebuild, the second rebuild I got the bad part, and then my parts guy went to Ag Parts, and finished the second rebuild. I’ll have to try Hy Cap on the next one.
  19. They think it’s a 1 fits all world! Well that’s not the case! 3 years ago I was going through the shifting rebuild process on a 1066, 1 main piece was wrong, splines were welded incorrectly, or the roll pin hole was drilled wrong?! Which ever of the 2 was wrong, it didn’t work, period!! Took the parts back to the dealer, parts guy saw the issue, got me another part coming, sent the one I had back, 2 days later, same thing wrong with the next new one. He called the supplier, they knew they had a problem, but until that run of bad parts were sold, they didn’t know when I would see the correct part?? Mmmm, why not pull all the bad parts, and scrap them, and make them right, your not going to sell parts that don’t work!! So ended up going through another aftermarket company! Their parts were right, and better!
  20. X2 Impacts are nice tools, but usually you need to break them loose with a breaker bar first.
  21. It’s supposed to rain and storm overnight, so if it’s not a muddy mess, it may become that tomorrow??
  22. IH part numbers are, seal is 377788R91, cup is ST856, cone is ST761A
  23. Nothing aftermarket really matches original! But your right with this one, it looks like it’s machined to small of a taper, or to short.
  24. I’d like to see pictures of these setups!
  25. I’ll try grab a picture today, of the one we made for the 5488. It’s a pinch type, around the support bar by the windshield
