    I was finally able to set up this photo this morning.   Bob's 826 diesel hydro gold demo serial number 11,756 and my 826 diesel hydro serial number 11,856.  Special that we could reunite these 2 tractors that started life at the same time in Rock Island.







    Aaron, what do you figure being a 100 apart, a day or 2 apart on the assembly line?  Good picture!!

    Wasn't able to attend this year. It's always a good show. Would have been neat to meet you Farmall1066.

    I forgot to ask Waylon, or DT if you were there somewhere.  I hope to return again, especially when red is the feature!!

    There is a fertilizer dealer up the road that does it. I will give them a call. To be honest sometimes I get a little embarrassed calling places that deal with people who farm thousands of acres to come mess with my little tiny field.

    If that’s how you feel, you can bring your own samples in, and just use the fertilizer dealer as your middleman to the lab that tests your dirt! Just get some core samples of your field, 6 inches deep.  A lot of people in my area soil sample their gardens, and use the fertilizer plant as their source to the testing lab.  
    But if you have a few acres in that field, don’t be embarrassed about asking them for the sampling help! Your property and dirt has every right to be as healthy as the guy farming 2500 acres! Your looking for quantity and quality as an end result, just like a big farm!

     Farmall 1066, I am sorry that I missed you.  Mike told me after the fact that you were there.  Would have made an effort to stop and chat!  Please do come and visit when IH is featured.   Red is strong in our area!

    I was the guy in the blue shirt talking with Waylon, as you drove by with the people mover.  He was trying to tell you I was a forum member.  I was really hoping to stay until the end of the show, so I could bs with you guys more, but dang it got hot at the parade of power!! So I decided to head north on my 4.5 hour journey!

    Had a great time talking with him.

    I had a great time at the show today!! It was great meeting you, and Waylon!! I really wish I could have met and talked with Aaron, but I wasn’t going to stop him while moving people. 

    When IH is the feature down there, I’m going to do the best I can to bring a few down to participate with you fine folks!! 

    And again, I really like your 856!! 👍🏻👍🏻  That’s a good looking tractor!

  6. It was plenty hot at the show today, your not the only one with a melted brain! I got just west of Nevada, and Waylon called me, I left my spare tire for my pickup by his trailer after we unloaded some weights he bought from me! So I had to turn around and come back to get my spare!! 🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️🙄🙄


    It was great meeting you today as well! I was planning on staying longer, but I just couldn’t do the heat anymore!!

  9. If pulling a magnum, I was always told, never down shift below 7th gear, that jump between the clutch packs could cause a nasty jump, or slip.  I wouldn’t know, never pulled a magnum, but one guy in my area that did for awhile, rebuild his transmission a few times because he was insistent to downshift as far as possible!

    Fever is providing a JD sheller powered by a 4010 LP tractor to shell out the crib.  Has JD wagons for cobs and shelled corn too.




    Will have a second sheller on a 4020 LP on display with the feature tractors.

    He is also bringing 3 military IH tractors too.image000000.thumb.jpg.4df87b29eb073c0a8fe10c07bba2f6c0.jpg

    He has some good looking toys!!! I hope the shelling goes good for him!!

    I’ve turned fuel screw in all the way but not getting lots of smoke engine seems powerful doesn’t smoke much when I load test it. What could be wrong ?

    Welcome to the forum! First off, what is the tractor you are playing with? If it’s a 66, 86, or 88, I’m about positive the screw needs to be backed out, not turned in.  But don’t back it out, until it comes out!  If it’s a Roosa Master pump, I’m not as familiar with those, but plenty here are.  

  12. I’m guessing someone painted a different cart  to be IH?! Look for a serial number tag, that should explain a lot.  As far as I know IH never  was into the grain cart side of equipment?

    Lol.  Lol.   Thousands and thousands of them.  Im starting to think every single tractor that left the factory was a gold demo.

    I’m pretty sure my 856, and my 1066 narrow front are! 🤣🤣
