  1. I run a 24" bar on my 365. Good powerful saw based on my very limited experience. If I can't deal with it with my 350 and 365, it's too big for me to deal with anyway.
  2. We took Brody's 240 and Brillion over to the church and mowed a path for our fall festival hay ride. Everything went well for 8 rounds, then the slip clutch on the bottom blades let go. We haven't had time to figure that out yet. The 240 also got hayride duty, but I didn't get any pictures.
  3. I'm glad Brody wasn't able to work the auction. If we had been there it probably would have gone higher than $500. I'd say shorten the frame and put a dually bed or shorter flat bed on it with a goose neck hitch.
  4. @vtfireman85It's rough and definitely farmer patched, but I think it started life as a factory cutter. I'm thinking it's is a stalk chopper instead of a mower. Brody didn't video the Dukes of Hazard maneuvers I did to get it out of the mud hole it was in at the auction with my two wheel drive truck.
  5. Brody and I volunteered ourselves into replacing the mast cylinder seal on a friends Case 585D forklift. The parts book calls for part number D82792 - which is somewhere around $300 or more. Does anybody have access to the dimensions of the seal so I can cross it to a more common seal, or do I need to bite the bullet and buy the $300+ seal? Is there something special about the Case part that is different? The rod is 4", I think the cylinder bore is 4.5". Thank you for the help - If it sounds like I don't know what I'm talking about, then I have described the situation accurately.
  6. I've loved square body Chevys since I was a kid. My first vehicle was a '76 long bed 2wd with a 250 cubic inch in-line 6 and a 3-on-the-tree manual transmission. I could have gotten into a lot more trouble with a 350 and 4x4.... If I were to find one with the 4 speed manual and 4x4, is there a later 5 speed manual that would swap in easily? Or a later transmission and transfer case that would be an easy swap? How hard is it to swap from an automatic to a manual if I find a deal I can't refuse?
  7. Kinda favors Mike MItchell's Fendt with triples - a lot of rubber! I like it.
  8. I don't think we got too far into our steering bolster. You should be able to remove the shaft and worm by removing the screw in plug on the front of the bolster and screwing the shaft out towards the front. You will have to remove the universal joint on the input side of the steering box. Hope this helps.

  10. By the way - I understood this when I was taking engineering classes. I graduated in 1995, and haven't used much of my engineering math since then.
  11. I get 3,327 lbs of force needed using this equation: In your case, the gravity force is 16,000 lbs, and you multiply than by the sin of 12 degrees, which is 0.2079 Since 'free rolling' isn't truly zero fiction, you'll need a little more. This formula is assuming no extra work to overcome friction. That being said, I agree wit VT, buy the biggest winch you can afford.
  12. AGREED! It was a great trip, except for the people.
  13. I did years ago - if you go to google and type in WD Buddy Seat, my tractor appears. It turns up in discussion on FB groups and unofficial allis from time to time. It's kinda funny to browse along minding your own business and find your tractor.
  14. @Wes806 - here ya go - I used a second WD seat support, and added a piece to the lower shock mount to use the brake centering bolt. It would be easier with the later WD45 seat supports that the whole thing just mounts off of the brake cover.
  15. I have 4 pins on the shelf in case anyone is in need - complete set of WD brake shoes too for that matter. We have not worked the D15, but so far as long as we are careful to make sure it is fully in gear, it stays there. I've read that the detent notches in the shifter rail can be welded and re-machined to gain slightly better engagement to cure mild cases of gear jumping.
  16. Not great pic of the guard around the thumb button for vtfireman85
  17. The button has a guard around the front and right side - I'll have to take a pic tomorrow
  18. The WD was complete, motor locked up from sitting with the exhaust open for years. I wanted the wheels and tires, and Brody's buddy wanted the factory 3 pt adapter and belt pulley for his WD. I hate to kill a tractor, but financially it was a no brainer compared to two new rims and four new tires. Brody & TJ have formed a local antique tractor club, and are hosting their first independent show in Boiling Springs NC this weekend. I'm proud of both of them!
  19. Mine is the second factory three point tractor I have ever owned. I do have my Grandpa's WD with the snap coupler set up - it works great as you said.
  20. Been busy at work and not paying attention to Red Power - thought I'd share what we've been up to in case ya'll were worried about me. Bought a sad little D15 - rottenest rims I've ever seen. Tires from the non-running WD parts tractor we bought went on the D15. Need any WD parts? Homemade one wire alternator mount & tensioner Hard fuel line to replace the 4' of rubber hose and the inline filter Got the front end spread out a little to match the rear And got rid of the chrome pipe and installed a cheap original looking muffler. Couldn't convince myself to spend $170 on a real Nelson.
  21. That's a beautiful animal. Thank you for your years of service feeding the nation.
  22. I should take more pictures while Brody is working.
