  1. Is that a kraut or a 282? Either way shes a beauty id keep it.
  2. Find a good original used one? Should be super easy to find. Check ebay or salvage yards. The new stuff is garbage.
  3. How are the valves for adjustment and wear? Those engines are notorious for burning valves. How is your governer system? Sounds like your governer could be worn out/out of adjustment. Does it throttle up to meet the load thats applied or does it just pull down? Does it smoke? Use oil? Is it getting fuel flow? I put flame thrower coil on every ignition conversion i do now as well.
  4. Hope your project goes well! The old dog is pretty clean yet from the picture you posted. I cant wait to hear how ya come out. My dad flies up to the northern edge of canada to hunt caribou. Says its pretty much tundra where he hunts. I cant remember what the resorts called. He met a guy at cabelas who used to guide up there and thats how he got into it. Hes an IH nut like me and we have a 966 as well. Good luck to you sir! As been said they are easy to work on compared to new stuff.
  5. Heres what it looks like now. Needs new tires yet.
  6. Thanks! It now has been painted and got an engine out of a 400 with m&w pistons and governer.
  7. Havnt seen ya in a while, hope ya doing good

      All is well. Just been busy playin in the mud and trying to get a bathroom remodel goin,and fix some old arctic cat triples!

  8. Do your pulls have an actual "farmstock" class or are they all modified? If you have an honest farmstock class a good stock M will compete. Will even place high or win consistantly if it has M&W or firecrater pistons. A lot of them do from getting overhauled during their service life. We competed for years and won regularly in 5500 and 5000 with a '47 M with weights over the axles and bolt on rear wheel weights. Nowdays its a lot tougher. Its tough to find unmodified tractors to pull against.
  9. Very cool. My uncle loves his 544. Its now repowered with a 656 engine though. The original 4cyl gave up about 15 years ago. Was a real fuel miser with the original gas engine. Which is unusual for a gas tractor of that age and size.
  10. Another thing to remember the d310 kraut equiped 706's were physically taller and longer than the d282 706's. I like the 282 in our 670. It pulls 4x16's in heavy soil very well. Theres even a story of a local farmer that pullled 5x16's with his from new. My uncle has two 706 krauts. One of them pulled 720 with 5x16's on it. Great old horses.
  11. Typical! That 1" hammer is causing me to have flashbacks of changing semi tires!
  12. Oof tractor mounted pickers dont bring much at all from what ive seen. They are a pain to mount and dismount too. The easiest to mount up were the new ideas. That being said if you could throw that sheller unit on a pull type you have some value there. A good one can bring 2 to 3 grand pretty easy.
