    As IF multi-thousand seat stadiums, special athletic indoor training facilities, special buses used to take the team joy-riding to out of town GAMES, special treatment of the sports 'stars' has anything to do with "life and discipline", really builds character, doesn't it?

    If these schools want athletic programs, let the parents of their budding sports star and the attendees to these events PAY for all those 'needed' facilities, BUT let the TAXPAYER pay for the educational part of education.

    As it stands now, any bond issue that involves sports, will NEVER get my vote.

    But, DON'T let me get started on college and professional sports "heroes" and the fans of the Kneelers. (Especially the Cocaine Cowboys, which seem have earned the right to be at the top of the dung heap)

    2x          here $3500 + per yr per student for the "EXTRAS" our "govt" mandate bill is currently $1200 + every month + inflation

    I'm guessing you fellas didn't play sports in school?

    Special high dollar facilities are certainly in the minority of high schools across the countryside.

    And the largest contributor to the stupidity are sports, which are nothing but pabulum for the masses.  When schools put a higher priority on sports, instead of "EDUMACATION", something IS seriously wrong with the system.  (Of course, the root cause may be that the 'teachers' cannot adequately 'teach' the subject matter, given the courses they had available to choose from in university).

    Karl Marx once said that "Religion is the opiate of the masses", in today's world, it is sports that takes that 'honor'.

    As Dean Wormer told Flounder :

    Sports?  Really?  High school sports teach today's kids more about life and discipline than any other area in their life.  What winning feels like and the taste of defeat.  No classroom is going to teach that, no app on their phone will replace it!

  3. Grew up on this one, Dad bought it in the 1980's, clutch and T/A, then painted it.  Many hours used to pull dry beans, cultivate beans and corn, loader tractor, planter tractor, doesn't do much anymore, plow snow, pick rocks.  Tractor will never leave this farm for at least a couple more generations.IMG_20200425_181629333_HDR.thumb.jpg.4db3ba71986ca51d9e2db033f5a9a934.jpgIMG_20130428_022700.thumb.jpg.d92e905c363340a9a093868a6fb283d2.jpgResizedImage951367159659665.thumb.jpg.d3679043eb69c94958f955f76211771e.jpgIMG_20171227_165042928.thumb.jpg.d9a796597c52f9cc65a706f9d0d424df.jpgIMG_20171001_154950463.thumb.jpg.0cf211b4a9df5d41b03b891dde9e78fe.jpgIMG_20190101_210250502.thumb.jpg.8906fe89160ee99e28eb31c3c8965064.jpg

  4. You can access inside by pulling PTO and belt pulley.  With PTO out you can see if any other bearings are bad.

    The pinion should pull out just as you have it, probably in a bind, maybe raise rear wheel to rock pinion back and forth to help pull it out.

    Minor correction, SOUTH Omaha Stockyards.

    I've got a picture of the sign , which spans the entire width of the street at the east end of the "L" street viaduct over the rail yard which says "World's Largest Livestock Market and Meat Packing Center".

    I've seen trucks, which included a lot of straight trucks, backed up onto that bridge, waiting to unload, but my cousin says he had seen trucks backed up almost the west end of the South Omaha bridge across the Missouri River.

    The unloading chutes at 33rd and L probably 50-60 (probably more) chutes for trucks to back into.

    Along "Q" (IIRC) was the Armour packing house, and Swift, Wilson, and I believe Cudahy (sp), and the smaller ones were also in the same area, some behind the horse and mule barns on the north side of "L" street.

    What I remember most about the stockyards and exchange building was, the walkways above the pens, the water dispensers, which went 'glug' and released a huge air bubble as you filled your paper cup, in the offices of the commission companies (My Dad used Maly), the cafeteria in the exchange building (although we usually ate at "Johnny's" (not the steakhouse, which is still in business), but the bar-restaurant on the north side of 'L', by the above mentioned horse and mule barns, and, lastly the "trough" urinals in the bathroom and the hoses where you could wash the manure off your bootsl.

    Now the former exchange building has been turned into a Latin Cultural Center, even though they really had fk all to do with the stockyards and its history.

    John Skarda, one of the buyers at Maly's, upon retirement went to Coldwater, KS, where him and his wife bought a  motel, and my Dad would then use him as an order buyer for his feeder calves.

    Do not feel bad about calling it Omaha, as it also ****** me off when they refer to Offut, AFB as being in Omaha, when it really is in Bellevue, which is in Sarpy County.

    Why was it shut down?

    There getting pretty darned big. Think they're going to start going for faster instead of bigger machines. The Lexion 8600 in the vid below is choking down 5.1 BU per second with a 12RN head & the Deere & CaseIH machines are doing 1 BU less per second with 16 RN heads. I'd like to see if the Claas slows down with a 16R head & by how much.

    Mike

    That is not harvest rate it is unload rate.

    I've done a few and as someone told me on here don't cap the lines take them completely off and cap where they come off. After that all you'll need is to find a 12v power  and ground and your done, to me taking the old seat out was the worst part just because it feels like they weigh a ton 

    Is this seat red, would you share it's part number?

    Very nice, does this have for and aft or just lateral movement?  What part number did you order?
