  1. Looks dangerous, be careful. Most of the old timers I knew that had missing body parts were from encounters with ear corn pickers

    Fuel prices

    Fuel supplier delivered 3,500 gal of red diesel Sunday. Price was $4.36 Not unusual for us to go thru 500 gal / day when running in the field. Bought my first diesel tractor in '71 (806), diesel was 16ct / gal.
  3. I'll take a look tomorrow but iirc I have a couple of those 86 series mounts in the old shop.
  4. We've been pla ting beans before corn for several years. Bean yields have increased as have corn yields. Last year we had beans up, planted 4/5 that were covered with 1 1/2" of snow & hit by 3 frosts, lowest temp was 26° that made 70 bpa. Seems the modern soybean can tolerate cold weather / wet conditions better than corn. If that field would have been corn most likely it would have had to been replanted. JMO, but I think corn reeders has given up a lot of cold weather tolerance in an effort to increase yield potential. FWIW, currently have 200 ac of beans in the ground here in wc-in.
  5. Class of 69 - " We're 69 ers, try it, there's nothing any finer"
  6. When I redid my SMTA I used copper coat & had issues. When I redid the head gasket an old time IH mechanic recommended using aluminum spray paint. So far no issues. That was 6-7 years ago.
  7. Had that happen to us a few years ago. We'd put a new deck on our gooseneck & treated the boards with linseed oil. Cleaned up the brushes with gas soaked racks & threw them into a Rubbermaid trash can with a lid. Next morning I walked into a smoke filled shop. Next to the roll a round tool box where the trash can usually sat was a blackened pile of melted rubber. Rubber tires on end of toolbox closest to what was left of the trash can were burnt off & black smoke residue up the side & back of the tool box. Other side of the tool box set the acetylene torch.
  8. Sour Lemmon, made with all lemon juice, no water.
  9. We had a hopperbottom custom made for a 9 ring (narrow corrugation), bin that is used as a wet holding bin for our Top Dry. Hopper has 60° slope and four 1.5 arreation fans. We used the bin as a flat bottom wet holding bin while the hopper was being made. We like the convince of the hopper over a flat bottom, no having to have dry corn for a cone, with 60° sides its pretty much first in first out, no having to clean it out every few days & replaced a unload auger & sweep with a 12v actuator & slide gate to unload.. Having the hopper custom made on-site was actually cheaper than buying a commercial hopper & having it shipped ~ 300 miles plus got 60° slope compared to 4t° on a commercial hopper & a lot heavier built.
  10. I'd recommend dual wheels on wings on 24' & wider to keep them from digging in. Based on my experience a 490 will do a better job of finishing & 496 will cut stalks better.
  11. We also have a AA tank converted to propane. Just make sure all the AA is out. You can use AA valves for propane but not vise versa
  12. We converted a 1,000 gall AA tank to diesel fuel several years ago. Tank was empty but we had to bleed some pressure off. After all pressure was off we put in about 300 gal of water, pulled it around behind pick then drained water off. Repeated the after draining stuck air hose in & let it blow for awhile, then let it set for several days to be sure tank was dry inside. We put a high volume 12v tank on top. Neighbor mounted a small gas air compressor to use instead of a pump. Worked good until someone stole the compressor. Don't use the fill bung to fill with fuel, there's a pipe that goes to the bottom & fuel will blow back out. We learned the hard way.
  13. I had one blow up starting a Steiger 435. Just turned the key to start, no charger or jumpers hooked to it, when it blew. Sounded like a cannon when it blew.

  15. King crab, boiled & fried shrimp, bacon wrapped chicken, & marinated steak with hash brown potatoes & homemade rolls. Ate at 5:30 & I'm still stuffed.
