  1. Spraying beans this past weekend. Added a little decoration to the Impala!
  2. Your alternator needs pulled apart and clocked a 1/4 of a turn.
  3. Was Emma out joy riding the 560 again and forgot to check the fuel? Those silly dogs are always doing that!
  4. No luck so far. Few close calls. 15669 showed up awhile back. Had to look close on the sn# tag on that one!
  5. I use 3/8" grade 70 chain and binders. On machines up to 656/666 size, I use one chain on front axle and one on rear draw bar support. 4 binders. Narrow front machines are fastened to frame rail on both sides with separate chains. 706 and up, 4 chains and 4 binders as described above. I only haul one of these at a time. I have my CDL.
  6. Red Tractor Fever is keeping track of them. Thank you!
  7. The Goodguys Rod and Custom Nationals is this weekend at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. Lots of neat cars during my commute this AM. Including the General Lee! Expect to see more on my drive home.
  8. I had an old friend tell me that his parade tractors did not work hard enough to keep the rings seated. So, they tended to puff a little out of the breather. He winked and smiled. "A paper shop towel will cure that!"
  9. The Roundup will survive for a while. Lots of people like me approaching my 50's who have 15 years of ambition for the event. Then we retire and have plenty of time to go! We just need to cultivate interest in the youth in old iron. Chapter 5 supports restoration and other IH projects in 4-H youth to develop interest in the hobby. Proceeds from hosting the Roundup allow this investment in the future. The exhibits will change as the age of the group fluctuates. You will see more 856, 1456 and 1066 machines than H and M these days. Baby boomers grew up on them.
  10. My Dad's last new car and the source of childhood car memories was that 72 Torino Sport. 351 Cleveland, 4 brl, performance cylinder heads, smog delete. It was fast for a heavy car!
  11. That is a 1972 Gran Torino! In the meme.
  12. Looks like the same tire/ wheel assembly on my woods 72" belly mower.
  13. They are not worried...... food comes from the store!😄
  14. We have dealt with groundhogs, badgers and skunks in live traps by leaving them in the summer sun...........
  15. Your national dues pay for the Harvester Highlights magazine and the insurance that covers you as an exhibitor at the Roundup. A good deal, if you ask me. Exhibitors always get free admission to the show as well.
  16. I have seen a large percentage of big frame hydro machines with the power beyond plate installed. If not from the factory, certainly a popular option. Impossible with the cover over the valves in the original posters photo to see if there is one lurking under there.
  17. Remove the seat and the cover. You may need to add the power beyond plate to the valve stack if not equipped.
  18. My hydro 100 power beyond. Block is below the seat where the 2 hoses attach. Hoses go around behind seat to grecian valve on cab wall. Was used to run a joystick on the loader.
  19. When I put cab foam in the diamond cab on my 856 back in the 90's, I had to cut my own from bulk. Nobody made a kit then.
  20. There was only one 756 at the show, and this was it. So sad. My heart aches for those involved. Appears to be the 756 on the front, 1026 in middle and 1256 on the rear backwards.
  21. I concur. You can see the 1026 hydro transmission in the one photo. 756 engine is a tell. White seat made me think 1256 too. Sad reminder of what can happen on the road. Thankfully the driver is okay.
