  1. Who will be the 1,000,000th poster and when on this forum? What an accomplishment. Way to go guys. I pick March `1st/21
  2. wouldn't want to be hunting in a big wind storm.
  3. my neighbor just opened up 1640 tranny today. wouldn't stay in 2nd range. needs gears. How could he contact you?
  4. Congrats. Nice full fan. How long are the Spurs? first of many I hope. I live to hunt but getting up at 3:30 , hunt morning, then get on tractor is getting tough in my old age or any age. consistently killing mature gobblers is a thrill. keep it up
  5. Need help. Can't find post about maxxum parking brake replacement without splitting tractor. I remember it said to remove rear right wheel and their is access but I can't remember the rest. It's a 2 wheel drive. Did multiple searches with no luck. Thanks. It's for my neighbor
  6. Brian S & guys- By following your posts I think you helped me find my 886 problem. I have identical symptoms and when we have room it's going in neighbors shop Big Thanx
  7. iirc owners manual says to pack concave cylinder bearings annually but they look sealed to me. we've owned since new for 10 acres or so each year but decided to try in beans. doing good. little over 71 bu/ac but dusty. only have 20 ac out but was wondering about those bearings. they are running cool but if they can greased I want to do it. thanks
  8. hilarious how we go from my slobbering 358 to the cultural drawbacks of us old farts. lol.i have a good grasp of this slobbering thing, but it's engine oil not fuel. with no blowby out dipstick, and long wait to check oil level was my main question of possible causes.
  9. sorry guys but you're right. it runs baler but never over 1800. i'm guilty as I've got a 1066, 574, n case 870 and run them all easy. if temp gauge even gets near midway I get concerned. I guess I need to change that. I did try straight 30 wt rotella with no change.maybe injector cleaner n run snot out of before anything. I really do baby them. thanks again
  10. thanks. appreciate your knowledge on thesubject. an off season project for sure
  11. no leaks. tractor is very nice condition. tri-stripe. if issue was compression I wouldn't think it would start so well but I have convinced myself this summer it's a little tired. bales hay in summer but a little tillage in spring. thanx
  12. a good quart. looks like an overhaul this winter
  13. no. motor uses oil. have owned it nearly 20 yrs. has always done this but just tired of it. shouldn't have to wait 2 hrs to check the oil. maybe pull head this winter n check it out. has 5200 hrs on it
