  1. Looks like the wife, daughter and son in law besides me will be there.
  2. The engine block is different. I used a motor that was from a gas tractor that had work done to it wrong from a tech school. I reused the diesel crank and new bearings. I reused the clutch and starter. I changed the hood. Long story but several years ago when I bought them I had to take the running gas tractor to get the diesel. Well it ran but needed help as in you could see the seats around that valves. Once done with the overhaul I turned to the diesel. Motor was seized, the injection pump was too. The head was trashed. Which left me in a dilemma. Iron price was down. So I found the gas engine real cheap and installed it. The loader was added to it. I wish I still had it as it ran very well. I sold it for enough money.
  3. Here is my two that I have both at the beginning and have only one now. Also one of my toys. The Diesel turned into a gas.
  4. Water source has to come from somewhere. that would be my starting point.
  5. Trouble with this is I have seen tractors that someone put a new rod/components back in and brazed the block shut and the tractor does run very well. Old days people were desperate sometimes....
  6. The only times we used the position control was for cultivating with a mounted cultivator and when plowing with the 560 on a semi mount 710 4-16 plow. The mower and blade we set the hitch to float and had stops in place.
  7. I can only suggest that he disable the control from the rock shaft. Center the valve with the lever either forward or back(up or down) all the way and with some sort of tool align the part by the clutch turning it until it goes off pressure. Note I have not had to do this. Or remove and replace the valve which is a lot of work. Another thing the OP has not said if there is a change in pressure noise. Maybe the cylinder is bent or froze in position. Or is the lever stripped and not positioning the gears in the valve. I am now not sure if there is enough information here.
  8. Engine cooked food reminds me of the crew that was tiling my farm. They dropped a can of beans down the stack but did not take into account the green blue clay they were going to run into. It blew everything into the field when the exhaust temp shot up. Boy they were hungry then.
  9. Bolt pattern is the same but there is a two inch height difference on the front saddle from a 560 and newer and the 400-50 series that needs to be taken into consideration.
  10. This is just a bit confusing. Supers never came with a fast hitch but people have made things work so to speak using early 400 fast hitches. I am picturing a fast hitch here that has the collar on the hydraulic cylinder that you either adjust the collar or the rod that has notched that can be slid up or down. Yes there are differences between utility units also. Picture would help a lot. My 560 which has a 450 hitch on it the extension plate almost hits the ground. Some one may have made your hitch go higher though.
  11. Short answer, yes. I have used single shank fast hitch on a 560 Farmall to break some hard pan but also to dig underground wire in for my well when I had a farm. Can buy cheap ones for three point but some are real cheap, but there are better built ones out there. The one i used had a shear bolt in case you really ran up against something solid, but my tractor would slip first. Older wheeled ground breaker is a better choice for durability.
  12. Talk to the engine builders, but it may be possible. Only thoughts here, but removing the sleeves , a touch of a boring the block and a stroker crank might get you there.
  13. If it is along a major highway it went to development.
  14. Seal was CASE -IH with the tube, expensive-. Originally had it pressed in but came loose when tube was inserted and went down hill from there.
  15. OK. snoshoe. Apparently the counter bore it fits into is too loose it will fall out when I tried that.
  16. Cup facing the pump, been fighting a new seal on a 560. It is too loose so when you push the pump in it gets caught on the recess and does not seat. Went back to the old style that you can barely move on the pipe and now everything is working.
  17. Looks nice but is are you going to be OCD and have them exactly in the same direction when showing?
  18. So sorry.. Prayers from us for your family.
  19. We filled a silo with ear corn. We put a Farmall 230 on the blower ran the unloading auger from a 1150 mill into it, covered it with canvas. 766 on mill with a 1 1/4 screen in it. put a gravity wagon feeding the mill. Elevator to gravity wagon and filled it with the wagons cycling to the 702 Uni two row and the two row 324 picker. One person just stood by the mill feeding it with earplugs in. Filled a 14x 45 that way for years. Feed quality was if you used less than a 1 1/4 screen it pulverized anything including sticks and handles that were unplugging the bridging, never had a problem with stalks or the husks. One year the mill broke and rented a roller mill which was quicker but my Dad flipped his lid when he saw the bill for the rent.
  20. Dad had a messed up leg getting it into a 2MH picker.
  21. Painful memory there with the turd tosser. One year when I was less than 15 we had a lot of corn that dropped ears when we were chopping with a Uni system(I want to say 30 acres or more, corn was short and we filled two 18x50) and dad was into Parkinson's bad enough he would be off the row for a while before he corrected. Well we picked up the cobs by hand, walking 4 to 6 rows at a time, probably three 150 bu spreader fulls and possibly a flare wagon full of the cobs. We fed two lots of about 70 hogs in open lots and the brood sow were on an open lot. Just back in and run a bunch off.
  22. Not sure what some people think, but for our farm we could start harvest at least a week or two earlier by going high moisture in a silo and then using cribs we could go sooner than a combine. The cribs we shelled out and used the cobs for bedding the brood sows. It broke harvest up and we did not spend for dryer gas on probably half our crop. With the silo we needed bulk to fill out the ration. So many reasons when you have livestock.
