  1. 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.
  2. OK. snoshoe. Apparently the counter bore it fits into is too loose it will fall out when I tried that.
  3. 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.
  4. Looks nice but is are you going to be OCD and have them exactly in the same direction when showing?
  5. So sorry.. Prayers from us for your family.
  6. 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.
  7. Dad had a messed up leg getting it into a 2MH picker.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Key word "ALL". At least you have enough creature comforts and that power
  11. Saw a video somewhere about a guy using a hose from the rear ports to prime. Not sure where or who it was.
  12. At least he was not experimenting with brake cleaner from a can and a flame like my son did...Garage still has the burn mark up one wall.
  13. Might have a small washer if I remember correctly.
  14. We tried cutting hay with a draper. Lets just say wet pocket gopher mounds are not compatible with a draper.
  15. Where is the drum roll when you need it.
  16. We had a 1466 with a white cab, for a few years and a neighbor sold my Dad a 5 bottom 20 inch 720 toggle trip plow. Went out to try it out in an old hayfield. First of all the only suit case weights we had were on another tractor. Well we dropped that puppy into the ground and saw a lot of sky as everything in the front went way up:-) After that first scare we were more careful and the tractor pulled it OK. Went and dropped a bottom off, and moved things forward. We could now plow without weights and full gear faster. I think the only time we ever plugged it was when my brother got too close to a fence line on rented ground and sucked in a barbed wire fence some one had taken down and just laid it up against the remaining fence.
  17. Yes, 720 moved tail wheel ahead and don't forget to move the back land side forward also.
  18. Yeah about the tractor trailer with the suicide sticker. And then they proceed to drive in the left lane only--maybe a exaggeration but seen it more than once. First cousin had a 600 and a 650. Poor guy died last year, I wonder what happened to them. Those earlier tractors had a certain grace about them.
  19. My first thought is that they were going to do a clutch job and when they removed the last center bolt, they lost control and it tipped over possibly hurting some one and the survivor said get it out of my sight.
  20. Part in the red box on the diagram above is bolted to the bottom of the bolster and controls the steering assist.
  21. Like mentioned it could be the spring. My self I would disconnect the shaft to make sure it is not affecting it because down at the bottom it has to allow the stub coming out to move in and out. My one 560 the spring did slide over the washers and caused something like it. Attached pic. You do have to drop the bottom stub shaft out first before you can pull this out. If I remember correctly the is something holding all the parts , some kind of a keeper. All this stuff can be dropped out the bottom but with a loader on it will be a pain. Dropping that side rail makes it go really easy. Support the tractor if you go that route.
  22. Looks like a clean tractor. Those wide fronts, I have had two and got along fine with them. One was on a 706 D.
  23. There was a bulletin of which cranks depending on the hardness you could use in that series block, also the gear for the timing train is the exact same part number. Not sure if I can find it though as that was 4 or more years ago.
  24. Actually the diesel crank ended up in the gasoline engine when I think about it. Still running and the guy who bought it off me still rubs it into my face how well it runs, he got the better running one of the two I had at that time.
