  1. My son bought this gravity wagon that was missing a hub a few weeks ago just to hold corn for the butcher calves. Didnt figure it would be too big of a deal to find a hub but so far we havent had much luck. Shoup hubs are different. Have different size bearings and all that. We took another hub off and measured it up and compared it to their book. First thing thats odd is the nut. Its a 16 thread pitch that I would call a 7/8 bit the spindle measures about .815 on the threads. An SAE 7/8 fine is 14 TPI. And all Shoups 5 bolt 5.5 inch bolt circle hubs with a 4 inch pilot that measure up close to this hub take an outer bearing with a .750 ID. And the inside bearing on this wagon has and extended innner race where it buts up against the shoulder on the spindle. So short of spending 80 bucks on a new hub/spindle assembley and cutting this one off and welding on a new one I'm out of ideas unless a person knew of a place that might have a used one. The numbers on the hub we took off were DK 13-1601 in the casting. Its a nice wagon to dump corn into buckets out of becasue of the way they got the gate fixed up on it.
  2. Ed, what the heck we gonna do when you decide to retire? You got anyone working with you now to learn the trade?
  3. Not to hyjack the thread here but I asuume that is a needled spider and cross. Will that fit in a stock diffential carrier?
  4. Had plenty of baths before in diesel and gas and am still way past elementary age. Not saying I cant get cancer from it someday or from something else but if I took a shower in that jet fuel and as a result hunderds of people lived I guess I would go home and shower and not worry about it. I guess God is in control.
  5. It was a fight. Especially beans. Didnt cut any beans below 13 till the last 3 or 4 days. Got done with corn the 8th of december. last 4 days of that went pretty fast after we teamed up with a friend of mine. Took out his 190 acres and sons 90 them 4 days and the 190 acre farm had to be hauled about 25 miles. Had 3 semis, two combines, two grain carts and about 8 guys a couple of days. The last farm we finished was Bronsons home. Had to wait on the dryer there and dry it and fill semi at the same time as dry holding bin was full.
  6. Yep, still am gun shy about that. Always wanted a big shed to put everything under one roof but not anymore. But no, this tractor is always fitted with a spray boom and saddle tanks in the summer. On the grain vac quite a bit in the winter. So it sets outside alot. It has a cab so it aint too bad to move around on the road from far to farm. Also the vac PTO shaft will actually lock on to this one. The other 1466 and the 5288 got the short 706 style 1000 RPM shaft and lock collar wont lock.
  7. Been using this one on the grain vac all fall. Hate that it sets outside so much but dont have a choice right now. It wont fit in the shed on the farm its at right now. But I ended up having to chip the ice off the throttle linkage before it would move and also chipped ice off compresor blet just to be safe. Gave it a real short burst of either and she popped right off. When I saw my tractor I rememberd a picture on here a long time ago that I saved. I dont recall now who posted it. I think it will be the second one in the post. My cab door was froze shut as well. Had to get in the RH door. After we got the semi loaded the heater had melted enough ice I could get it open then.
  8. Wish we could have got him to fix our Timpte grain trailer last winter.
  9. Yep, dad has a hex driver kind of like that. Seems like the flexible part might be made out of finer stuff. Might just be my luck some jack ass made the new points with a metric hex.
  10. Yep, pretty sure there is a special driver in my dads toolbox with that hex bit on it with a flexible cable type shank with a screwdriver handle on it.
  11. Its actually a delco distributor. Its a 427 chevy.
  12. I just hope I got good parts for it from Carquest. Local mechanics are trying to talk me in to doing away with the points and doing a breakerless ignition. No more than this thing gets used I dont see the benefit. Not room for an HEI distributor as it will hit the firewall. Its in an 1800 Loadstar.
  13. Here's the view from the bucket. Oh,you already drank the Coors light.😀
  14. Yea, but it lined up with the door jamb. I never minded it much. Never figured it was any different than the exhaust stack out the hood of any other tractor.
