  1. I like IHHarvester886;s idea. I would be difficult but add into his comparsion maintenance and overhauls since new To me if something works well for you, you like the design and you don't go broke its a winner .
  2. I am not going to touch the D21. I will get buried LOL I am knee deep already 😮
  3. Nebraska tests: AC D21 Series 2 tested 127.75 PTO HP AC D21 tested 103.06 PTO HP IH 1206 tested 112.64 PTO HP second test with engine at 2070rpm and PTO AT 1000 RPM-106.63 HP AC 190XT tested 93.64 and on a second test with engine at 1937 rpm and PTO at 540 rpm 89.71 hp IH 806 tested 94.93 PTO HP Nebraska Tests don't have bare weight so reluctantly go to Tractor Data for these weights but who knows if they are for a gas or diesel . I will just take the 2 I want to make a point. 806- 8460-9220 lbs 190XT-7675-7945 lbs OK, those numbers are real World numbers not keyboard Dynos. Look at them they don't lie. thats what you would see in the field. The D21 was a decent performer out of the A$$ Cracker line up. We had a guy who had a 210 that said it would run along with his 7080 but guess which one was in the shop the most. I never worked at an IH dealership but from what I have seen a binder will take more fuel than an Allis with better results I saw someone saying the 190XT was a 100 hp tractor last night and thought once again my memory was failing me. I dyno'ed them and thought they were comparable to an 806. Well they are and unless you consider the 806 an under performer a 190XT will not outperfom a 1206 . Allis tended to under build things and the 190s and 200s were good examples.( no LPTO? becuase they are overgrown WD45s) Look at the weight difference with an 806. I don't know why more people don't understand or see how those Binders were build like brickshithouses. The final point is a Binder normally will out lug a AC. If you grew up on one and have good memories I am not here to crush your Team Orange. The D21-220s were pretty good old horse but all and all the AC line up couldn't hold a candle to a Binder. One thing IH knew was how to built engines.AC not so much I love conventional Gleaners❤️
  4. look like you on one of those levers🤠 that would smell good too I can watch Charlie Roadhouse all day with his big Rumely. I had a video of him plowing but a week later I was plowing at a plowday and taking videos of guys around and behind me. I sat my camera between my legs for a second on the seat and it fell off and got plowed under 🙃
  5. good to hear you found one I just noticed a NOS one sold on FB yesterday for $300😮
  6. if some tells me a 190XT will run with a 1206 I say sure ............for how long thats the whole point any tractor can be over fueled but how long will they take it- in any area of the tractor. After the 190XT and 200 trans/rearends Allis built a rearend that stood up very well. nothing poor about them The mid hp 426s were at their limit IMHO and its not a myth they are hard starters, they like ether
  7. The thread was asking who likes to plow, Cecil Wells does ! Last night when I called my friend I asked if Cecil Wells was still alive. Yup , he competed last year at 90 years of age. He has gone to a sulky plow rather than that walking plow, So doing the math he was 79 or 80 in that pic/video We used to go to the Paris Fall Fair just to watch the Draft Horse Show and the 6 horse hitches. Cecil didn't have the fanciest wagon or harness but his teams and Cecil worked in fluid motions. IMHO he is the best horseman I ever saw. I grew up around hay burners and this guy is amazing. Obviously he is still working them if he competes with the horses I would have little interest to competition plow with a tractor and with a team of horses no way!
  8. I don't want to trash the Allis too much 190-200s are my least favorite. There is a reason they are very cheap but even the 7000- series are. I secretly would like a 7050 maroon belly because it has the big shifter on the floor and I almost have good memories in one this statement was the funniest to me but if a guy believes it I don't want to rain on his parade Heck, the One-Ninety XT diesels were outperforming IH 1206's.
  9. ^ bitty can do my talking here silliness in the highest degree
  10. OK, I chatted with my friend Jim Massey Harris #26 plows are the drag plow favorite because they are lighter and easier to adjust. Theres a Cockshutt plow that has a lot of fine adjustments also. IH Ace bottoms tend to do well in other classes. Some guys have been known to paint Massey plows green and put JD decals on them The video I posted shows how US guys start a field but in Canadian Competiton plowing the field is started by turning the soil out and than turn it back in.- its called an "opening split" all grass roots are cut off and there is a perfect crown, The method in the video actually has grass under the furrows which can green up later and the top soil is deeper in that area. I hope this makes sense because I cannot describe it better, I may go to a competition this year and make a video this is what he said via email Sunday with a pic

    Why

    one and the same IMHO
  12. Bobby Hull has passed away. I didn't like the Black Hawks and he endorsed Ford tractors.but I won't hold that against him😏 I used to see him in other Ford ads and I am sure he used them A local farmer sold him some Herefords and brags about that sale I couldn't scan the ad because its 2 pages

    Why

    We were dragged into the Metric system because of a Globull Economy vision a fool had
  14. do you have any current pics of those tractors
  15. hillman

    Why

    do you struggle with Imperial? I didn't and still don't. They converted to Metric here when I was half way through school so I don't struggle with it either. So I wasn't OLD but it was stupid and un-necessary just like the idiot that pushed for it We never completely converted. go to the hardware store you buy building materials in Imperial, you but nails by the lb,never seen a Metric nail yet , you have 3 times as many Imperial bolts as Metric, the concessions are 1 mile apart, the farms are in acres. virtually every blue print in machine shops are Imperial and the steel raw material is Imperial. I can keep going but going Metric was just a total waste of tax payers money up here so we will complain 💩theres a lot more to it than picking a combination wrench

    flashing is when a girl lifts up her shirt😲
  17. I have done 2 v8 conversions on S10s . one for me one for my nephew. Not as fast as that Luv but mine was my daily driver 3.73 gear. 700r4 , 350 with Vortec heads It would pass everything but the gas station. The kid who bought it was doing burnouts and lost control- wrote it off. I bought it back and parted it out and made out very well

    Why

    I am shooting myself in the foot with this link . But I will always say ft/lbs. too old to change . I hear lb/ft a lot more recently this will hurt some ppl's brain. I won't let it hurt mine. I don't care https://www.enginelabs.com/news/torque-talk-pound-feet-foot-pounds-one/

    Why

    flash ? new one on me too How about citiot radio personalities saying " champing at the bit"? champing? what is that? and they obviously don't know what a bit is or what the phrase actually means🤓
  20. I like to see a diesel roll a little coal in a tough spot or when you drop an implement and open it up, Rolling coal across a field all day long isn't cool to me IMHO
  21. I never heard of it before but it does look clean We used to watch Heartland but I got sick and tired of the relationship failure/soap opera crap. It would be nice to see a Mom and Pop functional family show
  22. hillman

    Why

    I looked in an old Motors book and it has lb/ft listed, I virtually had all the GM specs memorized in high school and I just cannot read or say it. Just spec'd out a new Peterbilt 1 year ago. same thing I probably make a lot of people think " why" does he talk like Jed Clampett.? I can't help myself, but I never use "k"
