  1. I already offered him triple.....
  2. I've got transformers in my plant now that say Allis Chalmers on the tag. I've seen AC pumps and electric motors as well at my former plant. When we bought our house, I found what looks like a granite or maybe bakelite vault cover with a brass AC tag. Kinda cool since I'm an AC nut too. I've got CH Wendell's book about the history of AC. They were big into power generation, hydroelectric turbines, construction equipment, everything but vehicles and refrigerators as you pointed out. I think that's where the comment about the world's largest foundry came from. If they had focused on farm equipment they may have lasted longer. Management was their downfall, just like IH.
  3. We already added a 1/2" spacer to the prongs. The discs and tail wheel blade will have to be good enough as is. They aren't in bad shape, mainly damage form sitting in the dirt for years.
  4. Thanks for the replies - I was mainly just curious. We are restoring a C-200 to go with Brody's 240. I found the bearings for the tail wheel locally today. I was wondering is replacement discs were available, and a replacement blade for the tail wheel. We probably won't spend that much on it, but I was curious. I was surprised the parts diagrams weren't on the IH site.
  5. We are working on a C200 fast hitch disc plow. I can't find the parts breakdown on the Case IH parts site. Anybody have a parts list, or able to find it on the website and show me where to look?
  6. You should show a close up of your pins. Pretty respectable TIG welds for a 15 year old with a poor teacher!
  7. Screens out the big viruses I guess????
  8. I bought a 2007 f150 super crew with 100,000 miles on it. At 150K a cam follower failed and ate a cam. $2700, a cam, two cam phasers, timing chain set, and timing chain guides later, back in business. About a year later, started making the same noise on the right head. Dealer said 'spark knock' again, so I drove it until it was bad enough they pulled the valve cover and found another bad cam follower had damaged the new cam. Redid it under warranty. About a year later, same old 'spark knock' on the right side. Yep, another bad cam follower, and just out of the two year warranty. I sprung for the whole set of followers and another cam, and been good ever since. I'm pushing 270k miles now, and the valve train rattles like a diesel but it still goes, doesn't burn oil. I think the root of the whole problem started with a blown o-ring on the timing chain tensioner, reduced the oil flow to the right head and damaged all the cam followers. All that being said, it has been the most expensive truck I've owned maintenance wise, and the most comfortable riding truck I've owned. I paid to have the plugs changed at 100K miles, did it myself at 200k. I'll probably make Brody do it at 300K.
  9. I like to listen to the Hee Haw Gospel Quartet on youtube while I work on the computer. This is one of my favorites, wish I could find a copy to purchase with Tennessee Ernie Ford on it. "Each day I'll do the best I can" about sums it up lately.
  10. TJ used to have a snap coupler disk! 🤣
  11. While trying to harrow with our Farmall 240 on Saturday, the tractor popped out of first gear several times. I had to hold the shifter in first to finish what we were working on. I've heard of this on Allis D14s and D15s, but haven't heard of the problem with farmalls. Is this common? Caused by wear on the shift collar?
  12. The advisers - husband and wife - are the best. Mr. Harris was actually voted teacher of the year by his peers this year. FFA / Ag classes focus on small animals, dealing with the goats, and green house plants. They do a spring plant & flower sale, and a Christmas poinsettia sale every year. I'm not sure why they don't do more with crops, we have several fairly large grain producers in the county.
  13. They are big on Robert's Rules of Order! 🤣 Our school has a dairy herd of 30 or so oberhasli and lamancha goats. The kids are actively involved in caring for the animals, raising the babies, and showing goats at the county fair and state fair. Last year the adviser tried planting soybeans for forage for the goats, and it worked well. He wants a second, larger patch this year, and we were able to help out by plowing part of the pasture. We will have to go back and spend some time with a harrow getting the ground worked up to make a decent seedbed.
