  1. I put a brand new voltage regulator (from the dealer) on the 129 before the mowing season. 2 of the contacts "welded " together causing the starter generator to keep running. Cheap new parts!
  2. The dealer I used to work for still has it hanging behind the counter. Keeps time and still lights up.
  3. Corn this past week. The 1" rain this past weekend was badly needed.
  4. Couple I know of, neither of them belong to me. ?
  5. Glad that the 3 point works for you, Dennis. I will stick to my 656!
  6. A testament to the power that the 407 had from the factory. Plus, this tractor came off the farm. Engine likely not recently overhauled.
  7. Our outside dog killed a groundhog early this week. I keep taking the carcass away from the house and she finds it and brings it back. All 3 of our indoor dogs have rolled in it this week and promptly received a bath from our daughter!
  8. Wow, what a nice pull! That 407 just sings. What did you do to the engine? Any upgrades or is it mostly the way it came off the farm?
  9. AP Air is another good source.
  10. I remove 1 frame rail at a time for cleaning and painting on each full restoration project. No big deal.
  11. Wow! Looks great, Rusty. Now we know what you have been up to lately. ?
  12. I thought it was a good idea. So much going on, and so many rigs in use right now! I could also have included the 656 hydro with 1100 sickle mower for roadside mowing, the Super C with woods belly mower and the 826 on the 990 mower conditioner. But, they were all inside a dark shed!
  13. Dad and I drove to southern Illinois to purchase it. Just before Christmas 2017. Would have driven much further. Definitely not one on every block!
  14. You might be seeing the grass in the ditch. Dad turned around while I was taking those pictures. I was up on the road.
  15. Thank you. We take pride in them. Keep them washed, waxed and shedded whenever possible.
  16. I can take a photo of the pump. It has a hose from the tank to a manifold at the base of the pump. Up to 8 rubber hoses can be attached to the manifold. The chain drives a 4 roller assembly that squeezes the rubber hose from bottom to top as it rotates, thus moving a squirt of nitrogen up the hose to another line down to each row unit. Kind of pulsates the fertilizer through the lines. Make sense? We use the squeeze pump and the coulter units on the planter as we plant the corn as well. Sometimes, we spray a little nitrogen with the sprayer on the corn too.
  17. My tractor collection kind of started out of necessity. When Dad (now retired) and I both worked off the farm, time was crucial. So, with each rig hooked up, we just jumped on and went to work with the time we had available!
  18. It is a John Blue squeeze pump. It is ground driven off the Buffalo cultivator unit with a chain. Tank on the front of the 1206 supplies the nitrogen. Dad and I built that machine from a inline ripper, Asherman fertilizer coulters, Buffalo row unit, and an IH weight bracket and 100# weights for down pressure. Even a 560 slab weight hanging on the Buffalo unit!
  19. This corn received nitrogen this afternoon and could definitely use a nice rain. This is the final field of soybeans we planted. Looking decent so far. Feel free to add your farm equipment your and crop update photos!
  20. 756 on the Westfield truck auger. Dad has been loading a load of soybeans every evening and delivering them first thing every morning this week.
  21. 544 with woods M5 rotary mower. My waterway mowing rig and ride for tonight.
  22. 1206 with the 3 point nitrogen sidedressing toolbar.
