    mx210 exhaust

    I put a straight pipe on my 7140 several years ago because the muffler was rediculous in price, it's not nearly as loud as you'd think it would be but it sure sounds nice😁

    766 with M&W turbo

    The range lever seems to just fall into low but you can feel it "click" into high and reverse, would this be a work roller under the range cover? Also where's a good place to get replacement parts for the mechanical seat suspension, this one is in rough shape. I'm not sure if it's fixable since the bushings are gone and has eaten into the metal.

    Two neat ole puller pics from the 1970s

    Used to be a guy here that pulled a jd 4010 back in the seventies, had some sort of homemade enclosed trailer to haul it in. I've been told by more than one person that he split that tractor and put a new clutch in while his brother drove down the highway for a pull the next day!

    766 with M&W turbo

    My youngest son is taking Ag Diesel at tech college , in his second year and has to complete an engine overhaul. Last year he did air conditioning and transmissions, had a local guys 2390 torn down to fix the range and powershift and got me to thinking, why not do the work for yourself? We looked for almost a year for the right tractor at the right price and found this 766 that has been parked for 7 years. The guy said he tore it down and found the insides were all rusty from moisture, put some new parts in ( not sure what all he did) and it still wouldn't run right . I'm thinking the main problem could be in the injection pump but time will tell on that one , he has to go COMPLETELY through the engine for his grade. The turbo was put on at 500 hours but has been replaced within the last 1000 hours or so , kinda too bad he didn't just start it once in a while and he wouldn't have had this trouble. Wittled him down a little and bought it for $3350 , time will tell if that was a good deal or not. He said it dynoed 115 when the turbo was put on and was his main tractor for many years, future plans after it's back running are gonna start with 38 inch castings , new rims and tires and some paint at some point after he fixes any oil leaks, should be a good tractor when all is said and done.

    Daughter getting bullied in school.

    Our daughter will be 22 in December, she had a **** of a time in highschool with a girl in her class ( only 5 girls in her class to begin with). She really didn't have much in common with any of them but this one girl had it in for her, constantly something. She had a strength training class with this girl and one other girl that she did get along with well, one day it was just our daughter and this little bit** as the other was absent , somehow she managed to hide her phone under a towel in the locker room and set it to take a delayed photo of our daughter while she was topless. This was done on a Friday and on Saturday when I came home for dinner she was crying and almost hysterical because this girl sent the picture to her and a BUNCH of other kids. We called the superintendent immediately and he already knew about it because one of our daughter's friends had gotten the picture and they were concerned about what to do with it. He told them please don't forward it to anyone but don't delete it yet as this would be evidence. My wife told him that we were going to call the county sherriff and he said that is a good idea, I have already called them myself. This girl had been in trouble with the law several times for drugs, alcohol, vandalism, had spent time in juvenile detention,you name it so when they heard her name they knew what she was capable of doing. The sherriff confiscated her phone and sent it to the state police for analysis and the superintendent suspended her from school pending analysis of the phone. In the end she finally confessed to taking the picture, was expelled from school, did not graduate, and was sent back to juvinile hall for a year until she turned 18 and was then sent to a detention center for another year, last I heard she was arrested for drugs again. I strongly encourage you to talk to your superintendent, we have a good one here, if they are worth their wages they will get on top of the situation, if things are happening off of school grounds then get the law involved. When the local police or county sheriff knocks on the door it tends to get their attention, good luck, believe me I feel your pain.

    3950 vs RMX340 disk

    The 340 is a much heavier disc for primary tillage in heavy corn stalk residue than a 3950, just depends on what you want to use for but I will say that I have used mine for finish work ahead of the planter and it does a good job there also. If you really want to bury trash a 370 with 24 inch blades will turn things black.

    I'd be willing to bet that your 756 out weighs a 4020 also.

    Surgery today

    A high school classmate of mine had a knee replacement 2 days before my back surgery and gets the other knee done as soon as the first one heals, we're only 50, this can't be happening! She is in for a lot of therapy when all is said and done but it's better than 50 years ago when you would just be left as a cripple so neither of us is complaining.

    Surgery today

    The doctor told me not to lift more than 10 pounds, no bending over, and to keep my shoulders square with my hips for 4 to 6 weeks. I can see that is going to be a challenge already, I keep catching myself bending and twisting and saying whoa no don't do that just yet. I sure don't want to do this again but it's gonna be tough to behave when I feel so much better already, mostly just sore.

    Surgery today

    Had surgery today to remove part of a herniated disc between L3-L4 vertebra. The inside part of my left knee has been numb since mid may along with extreme pain in my thigh muscle but they were able to medicate for that. 1 hour surgery, glued me back together, my knee is starting to get feeling back and I'm on the way home already. Modern medicine is truly amazing. Anyone else who has had this done, I would like to hear how recovery went for you

    Mx200 front wheel seal

    There is a snap ring on the back side of the hub, have to turn the steering to get at it
  13. I watched the Bootlegger run many times back in the 80's , there was another 3688 called the Revenuer that ran with it. Both tractors ran hard in their day.
