  1. I cultivate with my 856 and put the add on sway limiters that are plates that bolt to the drawbar. I have already broken one torque tube and now it is leaking out the torque tube. It seems like these limiters put too much stress at the base and problems are going to arise. Does anyone make any type of sway limiter that comes down from the axle and attaches to the lift arm out closer to the end of the 3 point? I'd like something like on our New Holland or JX100U.
  2. And I got it! I love this old girl. Out cultivating and noticed it. I wish I could buy a brand new one!!
  3. I think I put what you are talking about on my 2+2. It is from hy capacity. I don't know what it really does. It worked for years no problems but now have no hydraulics. Parked the anteater in the shed and haven't had time to fix it. Got a 240 and 255 so the 3588 is needed like it used to. I want to get it going because could use it off and on.
  4. I folded up my tine weeder today and the end snapped. I have no idea where to find the part number. Can anybody help? It is a 3 inch cylinder.
  5. Sorry but there is no way I would own a Massey. My son had one about that size, I can't recall the number. It really was bad, traded for a Farmall 95. Better but not the best. Now got a 120. Much better.
  6. My 50 has a hydraulic seat and no right hand armrest. The seat is one of the brown ones that is kind of cloth and is close to flaking apart. Any suggestions where to get a new seat or try to get it recovered? Any suggestions on a right side arm rest?
  7. Who makes a good replacement seat for a 856? The wrap around on mine needs to be replaced.
  8. Was out cultivating and the 3 point won't go down, no matter what I did with draft. I took it apart and the linkage from above was wedged into the arm coming up from the rock shaft. I got it into the position it is innow as shown in the picture. It doesn't want to go all the way down now but I am replacing the 1/4 inch bolt in the arm from the rock shaft. What do I do to prevent this from happening again? How do you adjust the set bolt? Can I just do away with the draft as I have never used it?
  9. What fittings do I need to test the clutch pressure under the floorboard of my 5088? It doesn't want to move very well and I thought I would start there. I have never done anything to this tractor other than install guidance and change oil, so I am pretty green. Thank you for your help.
  10.  Yes it is the same
