  1. Some guys actually do. You have contract and gate price. Joe blow off the street gets the posted gate price that everyone can see. The contract price is between the yard and the scrapper. They get a much better price per ton BUT they also have a minimum tonnage they have to meet each month as part of the contract. I have a friend who does it around me and if I get 150 a ton at the gate for something he typically is getting about 250 a ton for the same thing
  2. Here in central Iowa that tractor you showed MIGHT bring a grand in running condition at a decent sized auction. 10-20's are not hard to find and remember that they made about 215,000 of them so there isnt a shortage. Offer 800 bux for it
  3. the 560 had a Crawler turbo setup on it with a Garrett T606. that turbo went bad a few years back so i retrofitted it with one from an Allis 190XT. just a little bit of fab work but basically bolted right on. shes good for 100+ hp somehow broke 2 main cap bolts and lost my center main. found a pan full of goodies when i got it back home. Its got all new main cap bolts front to rear. managed not to hurt anything
  4. Its actually just a tick NE of Collins. about a mile east and 1.5 north of town
  5. This thing has had a turbo on it its whole life. I cant hurt it any worse than the idaho cowboys who used to own it........lol
  6. Ive seen numerous times and places where its been discussed about the Garrett T606 turbo for the 282 diesels. Hard parts are unobtanium and last i knew only seals and bearings were available. My 560 ate its turbo about 4 years ago and got towed to the shed to sit til i decided what i wanted to do with it. I had read that an Allis Chalmers turbo would work so I got busy researching. Basically what i came up with was the turbo for the D19, 190XT and some 7000 series was what i needed. Took the gamble and ordered on. It bolted right up to the manifold flange and then after that everything was different.......lol New turbo is longer overall so the intake boot has to be positioned under the front of the fuel tank bracket requiring a 45 degree elbow to slightly reroute the intake piping along with cutting off some of the heat shield New oil supply line needed to be ran Old clamp on exhaust elbow wont work ad have to buy the Allis turbo elbow. There are 2 styles so i flipped a coin. think i may have got the wrong one but oh well. Had to machine an adapter to keep my 4 inch pipe on the 3 inch elbow. The new elbow kick the pipe out to the side and forward just a bit as seen by the new trimming in the hood. So after about 500 bux and a bit of fab work the ole 560 lives again. Seems like its gonna work good but we shall see this saturday at a local plow day
  7. Thats gonna be alot of pictures.......lol Last time i counted i had 57
  8. Pretty much all finished up. Took best of show in the non restored category at the NE Missouri Threshers show.
  9. Back in the shop for the last little bit to do. Its fender fab day....lol fenders and drum lights should finish this thing off just in time for the NEMO in Missouri
  10. She made it to her first show. Went up to Cedar Valley threshers just outside Charles City Iowa on saturday. She definately had alot of lookers! Still have to finish fenders and mount lights along with a little more paint stripping in places. Next show will be in Shelbina Mo in two weeks and the Little cane will be finished by then. The manifold had to get swapped out because theres an internal air leak on it and we just cant get it to run right.
  11. Finally got my butt back in gear and got this thing running today. If i knew how to attach a video i would, but since i dont you only get the photo of it right before it went out the door and got pull started.....lol second pic is the high wheel and low wheel cane for size comparison
  12. Oh man Tony, you have officially broken my heart. I cant believe you're painting that nice original truck. Im sad.......I'm gonna go drink
  13. Worked a little bit the last couple days. started off with lug removal from a set of 42 inch wheels to put them on the 66's for the big cane. Took 2 widetread drawbars to make the narrow one for the big cane. 66 inch steel and 42 inch rubber tire canes had longer drawbars to make sure they went out back past the edge of the tire. extended the length then narrowed it down
