  1. At least 5 years ago I replaced bad tie rods similar to those with cheap three point third arms. Still working and I regularly haul 8 1500# round bales on that wagon. Can you add sides to that bed for your thrower.
  2. Been wondering about that myself, haven't come up with any ideas.
  3. We built a cider press in the ag shop when I was in high school. The teacher was pretty talented and he welded together a stainless cutter for the radial arm saw. It had a stainless chute and would grind apples as fast as two people could drop them in. We just used a hydraulic jack to push a plate down for the press. A tarp was suspended from the stake pockets of a pickup box and the tree was shaken to gather apples. We had it down to a science and sold quite a few gallons of cider and no lawsuits for food poisoning. I did some experimenting and came up with some pretty good hard cider too.
  4. I thought I'd seen all the different cabs that might be on an old IH, but I was wrong. I found an 806 on a consignment auction with a Westrum cab. There were backwards doors before the 86s. It's pretty rickety you can see it rock back and forth when you let the clutch out, will come off right away. On one pic of the cab you can see porcelain insulators and wire across the back of the cab, can't figure that out. The tractor seems to run well, has the R&D pump, hopefully just clean it up and put it to work, I guess the shift linkage is pretty sloppy, probably try to tighten that up. Got another one with a bad engine for parts, it will be donor read end for an 856.
  5. If you plugged all the holes with corks, could you fill it up with Diesel and penetrating oil and let it soak.
  6. Here are pics of the one I have. It has the same number as the one from 560 but it feels lighter and where the back bearing goes it is definitely smaller measures about 1.7 regular measures about 1.8". Probably wouldn't save you much weight but you're welcome to it. I'm about 25 east of Decatur.
  7. I have one I bought on an auction that has smaller spindles than a standard 6 bolt hub takes. Somebody said it was maybe for a 656. If I can locate it Ill see if it's any lighter than a standard one.
  8. A lot of them are used for weight saving when tractor pulling on some pretty hopped up tractors.
  9. It's really nice on the drag auger for being able to change speeds so easily.
  10. Grinders are getting hard to find in my area and therefore a good one will sell well on an auction. If you're not gonna do a lot a 950 in decent shape would be fine, but a grinder with hydraulic drives on the augers is a lot better.
  11. When I put a power beyond plate on I connected it to a three spool auxillary valve with a joystick on two spools. It was a lot cheaper than buying another open valve.
  12. Consider replacing the cover if the holes are worn at all. Not very high priced and can make a big difference in shifting.
  13. Does the bush hog have a clevis on the hitch that can flex or does it need one.
  14. I know there was a kit available at one time, either Allied Precision or HiCapacity had it. I'm thinking it was Allied Precision and they're out of business.
  15. I can't remember the title but I believe there is a YouTube video about cleaning this screen.
  16. Some of them put in the old style upper bolster and use a light Schwartz wide front
  17. My 806 came with 18.4/34s and 9.5/15s on it. I put 10:00/16s on it for the loader. For some things that makes the drawbar too low, the implement jack won't lower it far enough for it to sit on the drawbar.
  18. https://www.ebay.com/itm/311585275310 Some on eBay. We used to cut off Danish tine sweeps all the time without any problems. You could try annealing if you cut more off.
  19. My 560 probably has at least 10000 hours and is the fast hitch is floppy but it still works great. If you don't want that, I think the best three point would be the rock shaft and the upper arms and cylinder from a fast hitch and then make you own three point lower arms and attach them to the fast hitch. If you search on here I think you can find where a guy did this same thing with a 560 fast hitch he had mounted on an M. This would much nicer than any after market three point I've seen, I hate trying to climb on a tractor over those.
  20. The fast hitch on my 560 wants to hunt and stick on pressure some times. I finally realized I probably caused the problem by modifying the fast hitch so it would lift higher for a post hole digger, thereby screwing up the teledepth valve. I've read that you can replace the teledepth valve with a regular hydraulic valve. Would that cure my problem and work with the hitch going higher? If I do change to a regular hydraulic valve will I need to change any of the linkage or the lever. Thanks in advance.
  21. Schwartz should be lighter, I thought Super Ms all had the live pump by distributor and no belly pump. Used to be an outfit that made aluminum radiators that saved a few pounds.
  22. If you continue to have problems with the wheel moving you might want to consider replacing the wedges, they're not too high price after market.
  23. There is very little difference in actual size or maneuverability between a 656 and a 966. And I believe you mentioned a round bales, a 656 would be underpowered for a full size round baler, a 966 will work pretty hard with a full bale in any kind of hills. I bought an 856 on auction last September for $3000 and it took about $1000 parts and my labor to put it in good shape another $1000 if I had hired it done, so $5000 total.
