  1. Mike Links doesn’t list any exhaust parts for magnum tractors on his website. Only 86 and 88 series tractors.
  2. Since dave went out of business where is the best place to buy a chrome straight pipe for my 7140?
  3. So I borrowed a neighbors 7140 and batwing mower to mow some ditches. It sure has a flutter around 2000 engine rpms. Goes away at full throttle and runs pretty smooth below 1800. Out of the 4 magnums we have none of them run like this so this is a new one for me. I’ve heard Danny dirt boys talk about it before. How does a guy fix this?
  4. Well I think the diesel fuel worked. I drained the rear end and it actually had hy Tran in it and didn’t look terrible. I had 18 gallons of diesel I took out of an old transfer tank so I dumped that in and went for a drive. The ta never missed a beat. One time it didn’t quite grab right away in the low side but that was just for a split second. I drive around for a half hour and shifted the ta a lot. Seems like it really snaps your neck when you let the clutch out with the ta back but I guess that’s a good problem to have. I bought the tractor from a neighbor who’s dad bought it brand new. It’s been right next to my home farm it’s whole life. It has original paint and darn straight hoods. I got it running like a Swiss watch, not a miss, flutter, or tick, I can’t believe how nice it runs. It’s still on 6 volt and I think I’m going to leave it that way. I’ll post some pictures when I get the hoods back on.
  5. How much does the rear end hold? Like 15 gallons? How much diesel would it take to fill it? Sounds like a lot lol. Thanks for the help, hopefully it’s just gummed up.
  6. Thanks. That explains exactly what is happening. Since it’s been sitting for years hopefully it’s just gummed up. When I get a chance I’ll try and flush it and see what happens
  7. So I bought a Super M-TA from my neighbor, his dad bought it brand new. Didn’t run, drug it home and got it running. He thought the TA was out of it. You can pull back on the TA and it works but sometimes if you start out with the ta engaged (back) it doesn’t want to grab and you can hear it sort of free wheel under your feet. But when the ta does lock in (back) you can kill it by jamming the breaks real hard and it doesn’t slip one bit. Driving forward or reverse doesn’t change. Is this just an adjustment issue or maybe they have gear oil in the rear end instead of hy-Tran? Or is the ta actually going out or bad?
  8. My stepdad is taking rims off his 86 hydro and putting different ones on. Without looking and measuring I was wondering if they will fit on my super M? My super M has 13.6x38 size tires and the 86 had 15.5x38 tires on it.
  9. Has anyone found a good source for the adapter to charge the newer style shift accumulators? The otc part number is 380001168. I called my dealer and they are about $600 but they are back ordered. The price doesn’t rest bother me because I have everything else to charge them.
  10. Here’s another auction result. I took this screenshot on November 30 2021.
  11. These prices are just wild. Im glad I’ve been upgrading equipment the past few years. I bought a 7120 fwa, 7140 fwa, 16 row 1770 planter, 4800 field cultivator, and a Parker grain cart for what that 8930 sold for.
  12. Accumulators are all the same correct? So I could just swap ones off my smooth shifting 7120 and put them on my rough shifting 7140 to see if anything changes.
  13. Accumulators we’re charged this spring. Maybe one could be bad or something idk. Seemed like it shifted delayed or too soft before I had them charged. could it be regulated pressure in the transmission is just higher on the 40 series than the 20 series causing a harder shift?
  14. My 7140 shift a lot rougher between clutch pack such as 6-7 and 12-13 than any of our 7120 tractors. Is that just the nature of the beast or is something wrong or some adjustment need to be made? While chiseling shifting up or down between 6 and 7 is darn rough.
  15. Damn those low houred boxcar magnums bring good money. I bought both mine for less than that one cost.
  16. Thank you. Im 31 years old and work a full time job also. It’s not all mine. The combine, the 2 7120’s on wagons, and the big red wagon are my grandpas. We farm separately but work together.
  17. Oh and my 706 German diesel and 2 smaller wagons to finish off the field this morning. It was such a nice day today I hauled 3 rounds with the 706 just to spend some time on an open station.
  18. Well I combined everything full Saturday night and the elevator doesn’t open until 11 on Sunday’s so I had the whole fleet lined up and loaded this morning for pictures. I like seeing everyone else’s pictures and I appreciate the advice from you all. It’s not new but it’s bought and paid for. 3, 7120’s, a 7140, and a 2366 with a 1083 corn head.
  19. I’m not sure if I can get to the solenoid without moving the wheel. Will it cause any damage to run it the rest of the fall with it in 4wd all the time? It’s on grain cart duty so will be going down blacktop roads a handful of times moving from field to field.
  20. My 7120 tractor is stuck in 4wd. It blew the fuse, I replaced it, blew it again. What are the chances it’s just the switch and not the coil behind the rear tire? When it dries up I’ll be able to change the switch with one of our other magnums and see what happens.
  21. Oh and for the record I do have one farm that I no till. I have a couple neighbors that are 100% no till, it does work on certain ground.
  22. It’s very dry here in northern IL, we have been missing every chance they call for. My new to me John Deere planter is running like a sewing machine. Grandpas 955 cyclo is also running good. Done with corn, should finish beans tomorrow.
  23. Yea your 5488 will pull it fine. If it’s MFWD you should be fine but if it’s 2wd you will need a lot of weight on the front end. They are very heavy on the drawbar. Ours came with a hammer strap that attaches to the 3rd link to take some weight off the drawbar. We pull ours with a 7120 MFWD and it works just perfect.
  24. Well I noticed it this winter. Pretty easy to see in the snow.
