  1. Already started!! I know of a few 100 plus acre solar farms east of me! My cousin and her family actually moved when they heard about the plans of the big one going in by them, they got out before it started being built!
  2. $2 corn and $6 beans will slow a lot down! The way MN is going to get taxed to death in the near future, all it will take is low commodity prices, high land rentals rates, expensive equipment, and game over for many!! My property taxes just about doubled for 2024, and my place is nothing to brag about!! $3077 for 2023, and not far from $5800 for 2024.
  3. Shoot, to bad that didn’t work out, would have been an even better trip getting to meet another forum member! Waiting for dryer and warmer, or moisture? In MN we are waiting for spring! Snowing and 42* right now!🤢
  4. Yes, the back spacing is different. I’m not sure, but possibly the same as a 2wd magnum?
  5. I finally decided to make the trip out to Ohio for the quick hitch I bought. Never been through the northern part of Indiana, some pretty nice looking farms, and dirt along hwy 30. I didn’t even realize that I went right past a forum members farm! I saw the name on the barn, thought maybe, and verified it when I got to a hotel last night! Went right by Smoker Farms! Wish I would have taken some time to go back for a possible visit. I had to drop down to Crawfordsville IN after I left Willshire, great weather for traveling, nice scenery, 18 hours of drive time yesterday! I’m really surprised there was not a lot for field work going on in Indiana, or the short distance I was in Ohio.
  6. Would like to see more of the 1206!
  7. Prayers coming your way!!🙏🏻🙏🏻
  8. It’s finally coming along, another reason I hope to get it running before field work, cause right now we aren’t hauling much, and it’s to wet and cold to start on much for getting equipment ready. So have had a few full days to work on it! Just keep finding things that need attention, or replaced! Here’s after today! Sending him receipts has crossed my mind, but I’m not going to come down to his level! I don’t have an account on facebook, but I used my wife’s account to browse, on an IH page he got completely shredded by 70-80 people or more!! That put a smile on my face!
  9. 1256 Your memory is sharp!! 👍🏻😬 I’m drawing a blank at the moment, on the serial number, but I believe it’s a 67 model?!
  10. Every time my great grandfather and my dad would plant oats early and get a snow on them, was always the best oats!
  11. I’m trying to get the overhaul completed and engine running before we get busy with spring field work!
  12. If the pump was just rebuilt 4 years ago, I would sure hope it’s not bad again!! Start with the simple things first, fuel flow, fuel filters, make sure there’s no black slime (algae) A day checking over your fuel system to rule out the pump, is going to be cheaper than sending your fuel pump in for a rebuild, just to have the same issues when it goes back on!
  13. Primer pump won’t pump fuel if the filters are clogged up, start with a filter change, and cut a filter, or both open and check for black slime to make sure you don’t have an algae problem!
  14. I don’t believe they are in business anymore, looks like the nearest dealership is Hammel Equipment in Harmony MN
  15. That was probably the Shell hytran, that stuff stinks!!! That’s all our dealer supplies, and when they filled our bulk setup, the shop stunk for 2 days! I’m about ready to find a viscosity dealer!!
  16. Thanks guys! That’s what I’ll do!! I just can’t believe our parts quality has come to this!!
  17. Trying to get the engine in the 1256 wheatland put back together, but I’m on my 3rd set of main bearings that the thrust bearing is formed to big (lose in the block and cap) So I found the bearings that we put in it before the overhaul, and they fit tight! Those bearings were never ran, just rolled over putting things together until we found major issues and had to pull it down for overhaul. The new/used bearings had some dirt and debris on them from staying in the block while it waited for the machine shop trip, and moved around the shop. After spraying them with brake cleaner, I can’t feel anything on them with very light rubbing. So my question is, would you use them so you can get an engine back together, or keep buying bearings until you find a set that fits correctly? This is my first overhaul in years, and already stuck with 3 rounds of bad bearings, I don’t know how you guys that overhaul many engines in a year keep your sanity?!
  18. I definitely don’t like the new layout, but I think it’s still a step above CNH website
  19. Happy Easter to everyone here on the forum! He is risen indeed!!!
  20. I would sure help where I could if I was closer as well!!
  21. I bet you couldn’t wait to get it, it was definitely a nice 1256! That definitely seems like a good deal on the 560!
  22. I saw you pulling out with that tractor when I was pulling in to get what I bought, that 1256 looked really nice the little I got to see it!!!
