  1. Some people have added a swinging drawbar to an aftermarket three point, something like the pic in this link https://www.google.com/search?q=aftermarket+three+point+on+560&client=ms-android-verizon&prmd=sivn&sxsrf=ALiCzsYfOi9Ymxt4_HUM8VccT5Q-TRsU0A:1662583941608&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjnqv7px4P6AhVCg4kEHSy9CroQ_AUoAnoECAIQAg&biw=592&bih=280&dpr=3#imgrc=tAr7lkSDpoOsnM
  2. The first windrower I had was a Hesstons 1014 with rubber and steel. The rubber roll wore out enough that it wouldn't pull hay through especially if it was weedy. I had to weld beads on the steel roll to get it working again. It was starting to have trouble again when I traded it off, as a new roll would have cost more than I paid for the machine. My backup machine now is a 1014 with two steel rolls, it has probably cut more hay than the other one and still works well, can't tell any difference in drying time. I use a Macdon most of the time now, it has steel on steel that intermesh and are a couple feet longer than the hesstons and the hay dries a lot better.
  3. I use a group 31 truck battery on an 806 diesel that's not an easy starter. Works well. I just flattened the lip on one side of the left hand tray and made a hold down with angle iron and J bolts.
  4. All I've ever run are the double guards with no replaceable ledger plate, several years I mowed 100 acre 3-4 times a year with a 9'. I tried riveting in a ledger plate once or twice and said never again. Wouldn't even consider using them, let alone trying to shim them up. Like I said the only thing I ever did to keep them close was hit the hold down. I think Crary used to make adjustable hold downs I used on a windrower.
  5. I googled slip plate and lots of places had it cheaper than Grainger. When I used to use it on silage wagon floors it would last several years. The ez slide stuff they have around here only lasts one season.
  6. How do you shim up the guards? I've run a sickle mower for almost 50 years and never heard of doing such a thing. If the space between the bottom of the guard and the section gets too wide you just give the hold down a whack with a hammer to push the sickle down. I haven't used guards with ledger plates in 40 years, the double combine style guards or stubby guard work so much better.
  7. A friend pulled a diesel 560 years ago, it had the pump turned up and different injectors put in it, maybe more I can't remember. They pulled it twice one night at the same settings once with muffler and once with a straight pipe. It actually went farther with the muffler, not a lot,5-10 feet and I suppose many other things could have caused the difference.
  8. Google Farmall M pulling hitch and click images.
  9. When we went from a 2M-H to a 234 picker on a 560 we quit disking the endrows, the bouncing helped it pick up the 234.
  10. The allied precision MCV was developed to combat the time lag in the shift of the spragless TAs. They reworked it so one clutch pack didn't completely lose pressure before the other one was pressurized. A friend of mine and two others came up with it and sold the the idea to allied presicision.
  11. I have ground a little off of a stop to get by. New wheel bearings and or bushings on the vertical part of the spindle may help. One guy he liked Firestone tires better but in this situation firestones would rub and goodyears wouldn't.
  12. Guess I was around spragless TAs too long
  13. I thought about the couplers especially since I'm using adapters, but all four are slow, I didn't figure all four would be bad at once. I'm pretty sure it's the mcv pump on the 10 it had been having some problems before, it lost steering, brakes and drive for sure, I will check the other things.
  14. We put a gauge on the hydraulics today and it was less than 1000 psi, so we tried a different relief valve and got over 2000, but not still not much flow. Very slow to raise and fold disk. So maybe a pump the next rainy day. Rainy day jobs are piling up, mcv pump must have quit completely on the 1086. It stopped moving and rolled backwards until it jackknifed into the planter tounge.
  15. It is an open center tractor. On the three point levers the pivots are pretty good, its the actual control valve at the back of the tractor that's sticky. On the hydraulics I should have said the motor doesn't pull down hardly at all not near as much as my 1086 or 1486. The eyebolt I just didn't know if I could that hot enough to get it loose. After I posted last night I read about somebody taking something that stuck and soaking it in the stock tank and it came loose. Has anybody tried that?
  16. We bought a pretty low hour nice 1586 last winter. A few things seem to be kind of sticky. The hydraulic levers will stay in detent with nothing hooked up and it doesn't pull the motor down much, could the bypass valve be stuck? The three point lever was stuck pretty hard, we got it moving but it's still pretty hard to move, can you get at the control valve sight removing the fuel tank. Finally the bolt that screws into the lower three point arm that the sway brace hooks onto is stuck, any ideas how to get it loose? Will try and post pic of that. Thanks in advance.

  18. But I have the doors off my 86s except in the winter.
  19. Yeah it doesn't bother me to look around one pipe. I'm sure I'd burn my hand if I put the pipe on the corner of the cab.
  20. Neighbor had a 1486 that would stay lit up after turning key off until you pushed the 1000 rpm PTO button.
  21. Not an 806 but a friend of mine used to pull a 560 diesel that was hopped up a little bit. He pulled it twice one night at the same weight once with a muffler and once with a straight pipe. He went farther with the muffler. I know its not scientific, but interesting.
  22. I've got one like in the picture, got it free, it was on a rotary hoe at an auction, they sold together, I bought it and told I them I only wanted the converter so resell the hoe. It brought as much as I paid for both. We use for both a fast hitch blade and a hog carrier we made from a fast hitch carryall back in the 70s. We don't have hogs anymore except for 4h pigs, but we use the carrier if we need to get a baby calf in, usually the cow will follow right along.
  23. New to me 1586(hopefully will be able to post pics). I want to change it it to dual PTO. If I understand right there are two ways, cut and weld coupler for input shaft or change back cover and add 540 shaft to the original 1000 only PTO. Is either way preferred or easier or is it a toss up? I have a donor dual PTO from a 856. TIA
  24. The old IH mechanics around here recommend the aluminum paint for the older tractors. I think two coats let dry and then install while the the third coat was still tacky. Did it on my 560D a few years ago so far so good.
  25. Gehl grinders with a hay table came with a hydraulic driven bent auger, at least every one I've ever seen.
