  1. Don’t worry about the block heater, plumb in a tank heater, 30-45 minutes and it’s ready to start
  2. I grew up on this 856, was sold in 1999, and I just bought it back last spring!! Needs a TA, wheel seals, a bunch of gaskets, and orings, steering wheel work, seat, and a bunch of other misc. work, but it’s back home!! 10,413 hours on a working tach, and as far as I know, never been open up, and looks like the original pump on it yet!
  3. I was never impressed with the wind system. We had both the wind bar, and air reel, the air reel was better. We now are draper head, and don’t need wind!
  4. Hard to say? Rock got in the stripper plates? We run a 12 row chopping head, and so far just broke a double chain on the row drives.
  5. My brother bought a new Peterbilt back in January or February, it’s still not ready, it sat in the plant for 2 months waiting for parts, finally my brother started ordering parts from 4 state truck parts, just to try get it done. Still doesn’t have the truck yet.
  6. My 1066 narrow front looked like 👆🏻👆🏻 but, the 4 post and fenders were beyond saving. Rusted out from southern Florida saltwater air.
  7. Is this something you are going to save? Or just a picture of something you found?
  8. I’m worried about parts for spring, and next fall, that really could be interesting!!
  9. 32,000?!?! What??? Black top or red top 8010?
  10. Ok, I have cartridges showing up today for the one remote, it’s been fine since I posted this topic, now yesterday it popped once, today, no go. So are these cartridges easy to install? I’ve done the conversions on some 66’s, but these remote bodies are different, I’m assuming the cartridges come with instructions? J-Mech would be chewing me out about get a manual, I don’t have one, the experts here are my manual, that’s why I came here!!! Thanks guys!!!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
  11. That sure stinks!! Was the package damaged? Or did the seller, sell it broken?
  12. 666 has a 5 speed transmission with a TA. If you look at it, pictures will help us help you!!
  13. Another?!?! Your having good luck!!
  14. Talked to a dealer down there this morning, they actually said a 1 ton is plenty, they pull 15 shanks all over down there with 1 tons. So maybe I can get it.
  15. That does sound expensive!!! I might have one on the hook?! Dirtboyz might have one for me?!🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻
  16. Bought a piece of tillage equipment, and a 1 ton pickup is not enough to pull it, anyone near Redwood Falls, that can help me out? You will be compensated, this wouldn’t be done for nothing!
  17. The rod journal was ground .020 under already, the machine shop checked that right away, and then noticed the thrust area.
  18. Yes, not what I wanted to hear!! I’ll call them, I keep forgetting about them up there!! Does anyone know if they make a wider thrust bearing? The machine shop said he could clean up the thrust if I could find a wider bearing.
  19. As of 9-20-21, the 1256 is in need of a crankshaft! Pulled it, to get it ground, and got a phone call yesterday, the thrust journal is non repairable?
  20. Earliest ever in east central MN! Started corn on 9-18-21, a solid month, month and a half early!!! 18-22% moisture, 80-110 bpa, and 2 years ago these fields did 230 bpa!! We were dry this summer, and hot!!
  21. Thanks for sharing Nate!! I really wish I could have made it there!! Looks like that rivaled red power!!
