  1. I tired some Virgina Jumbos in my garden several years ago. It was a cold wet spring and they rotted before they came up. They were big seeds if I remember. If I had time and space I would try them again but plant them in ridges. That might help the wet part of it. Seems like they needed 120 days to mature.

    I tried to buy that tractor 2007ish and he didn’t want to sell it at that time . You guys won’t believe this but that was our next door neighbors tractor where I grew up in north east IA . My brother worked for Ray and Joanne and run that tractor .  When I started at IH worked on it and when Ray had his sale I did the complete service on  it , washed and waxed it , deliver it back to there farm on the way home from work . 
    ‘Hope it goes to a good home , I should go down home at see it one more time , I see the water filter is still the one I put on it back when I serviced it 😳 that’s crazy . The owner now I have known since I was a little kid and when he got it he has had it sitting in the shed in Volga IA at his old salvage yard . He would run it every year so I’m sure he has the old good diesel fuel in it yet . 


    So did this owner buy it new?

  3. This ones made out of what looks like pot metal. My fingers got silver stuff on them after I washed the carb cleaner off of the parts after it came out of the bucket. I took it back apart and didnt see anything plugged and turned the venturi over and it idles better but still dont suit me.

    Alittle off topic  but I'll never purchase another caseIH reman engine from SRC  the one I got once had poor quality  aftermarket bolts even had exhaust stud holes fixed with heilcoils and had to swap parts from the old engine to make it useable on top of that it only  lasted 1500 hrs before the cam went bad poor poor quality parts very disappointed 

    Mechanic at our local dealer told me awhile back they quit using remans too. They rebuild them in the shop now. Have a somewhat local machine shop does good work on the parts too.

  5. Have a marvel shebler TSX series on a massy 150 with continental engine I'm working on. Replaced exhaust manifold and decided to rebuild carb while it was off. Got it all back together and running but now it wont idle unless the choke is pulled partly out and idle screw is all the way in. The only thing I seen that I didnt like when I put it back together was #12 was pretty loose in the the upper housing. Could actuall see a little daylight around one side of it when you look in from the top depending on whick way you held it. Not sure if that could do it or not. They sent two new idle screws with the kit. I matched up the one that was like the old on and installed it. I even took it out and put the old one back in and still no luck. Any ideas?

  6. These new tubes nowdays are junk anymore. We have a planter with 7.50 x 20's on the main transport and they put flaps in them like a truck tire. We've had a battle with them untill I fianlly had them foam tilled. Seems like the tube would always get cut by the edge of the flap or the corner of the bead would eat a small hole in them. They weren't 2 peice rims either and was a PITA to repair.

    Here's what I find....29 GPM for pump flow; relief valve pressure spec. is 4000 psi.

    Thanks for the info. Got a neighbor thinking we may just be that I have the wind board set wrong and not letting it out of the rollers enough. It could be becasue I am wanting to lay it out as wide and flat as I can. I may try re setting that tommorow.

  8. I have 3 or 4 of them on rifles and cant complain about them so far. I bought them because everything I read about them at the time said they were made in USA and would hold their settings unlike some imported scopes and on and on. Now you all got me second guessing. Another problem I have nowdays is seeing without reading glasses. My redfield on my 22 seems to work better for me if I wear my glasses I keep in my toolbox in the shop.

  9. Anyone know how much drive pressure I should have on an 8360 mower conditioner to the drive motor? Have slugged ours 3 times in tall grass. Tired of cleaning it out. Just want to make sure we havent got something going on with the relief valve or whatever.

  10. So can anyone tell me by the picture what model fridge this is or where I can find a tag to figure it out? Thing sure works good but gets real sweaty around the door on the outside and some times it drips on the inside too.

    replaced seal under steering wheel and I thought it took care of leaking issue,

       used it through planting and first cut of hay and steers harder and leaks out the bottom now. leaks bad at start up .

    need to probably replace now.   Where is best reasonably priced place to get one ? any ideas? 

    not sure I want to go the new seal rebuild myself route ,I  envision nightmares with that , 

    Tey arent that hard to do. As far as the hard dteering issue, when you put your top seal in did you just take it out or did you pull the housing off the hand pump that the seal is in? Reason I ask is if you pull that hosuing and dont get it lined up perfect going back it will steer hard. I always take a hose clamp and go around the body and housing and tighten it down before I tighten the bolts.

  12. Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone. Spent most of the morning sleeping in till about 9 AM. Then canned some carrots and made some home made ice cream this afternoon with some frosty beverages in hand. Son and his wife brought the grandson in for supper. Grandson's birthday is the 18th and daughter in laws parents threw a big party for him last night for his first birthday. They have a big family so there was lots of people there and major presents for him. He went nuts over the 7140 that I got for him. Best thing is daughter in law told him this isn't just some walmart type john deere farm equipment here buddy. Other grandpa is an athletic director so if he likes baseball later in life we can deal with that too.

    Thats the bearing,  Often that gets boogered up when the transmission gets put on the differential.     Someone may have forced it together by drawing the bolts up.    You can stretch a rubber band around the rollers to hold them in, then join the trans to the diff.   You dont have to worry about getting the band off of the rollers.  Leave it in place and it will disappear in time..

    Yep, figured thats what happened. Thats what I always do is the rubber band. Sometimes it ends up in the filter cavity too. That roller was the only one I could find even after pulling the 3 point cover off. Figure it wont hurt nothing for him to keep running it mowing hay till we get a chance to split it. He mows in hi 1 so that bearing will be in two shafts locked together.
