  1. A lot of inhalers for people with breathing problems use 134a as a propellant. Sure must be some wicked stuff.
  2. You can change the hydraulic filter without dropping the oil. You will lose probably a quart at most if it isn't plugged and maybe a gallon at most if it is plugged. I guess if you can't try pto you can try raising 3 point hitch up and down or plug a hose into a remote and hit lever to try to pump oil into a bucket. That should tell you if you splines are sheared and you looking at a split. I'd hate to do a fresh oil change than have to split it right away.
  3. Our 735 was recessed too. Did nice job plowing but had alot of trouble with that plow. Parked it after main beam snapped the 3rd time. Running a 7500 onland now. They have some improvements on the main beam which look like they should help.
  4. In my opinion 1256 too much power for them step up wedges. Better off with step up rims or find some 38 type cast centers preferably wedgelock style.
  5. Do you stick with original size clutch or you run bigger in your 3688?
  6. We always float our 3688. It can be a bear using the clutch for running on the road.
  7. I found a link with more photos from a previous auction but I can't get it to transfer out right here. I might just download them and put them here. It is a confusing machine. I kinda want to say prototype.
  8. I tried to snoop a little. I not very handy on here but this what I come up with. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slrwP10jDcQ There is another article but I lost it. I'll try to find the link again. I think I found it. https://tractorzoom.com/blog/2019-interesting-equipment-auctions
  9. Thought they run red cabs black rear castings? Must be different type of gearing to run planetary rear to match the front planetaries. It a mind boggle.
  10. I want to say 986. Looks like 34" clamp type wheel castings with step up blocks to 38" rims. 1086 most likely have 38" wedge lock castings. I can be wrong too
  11. The tread on the customers shoe also pretty modern. Is a nice pic though.
  12. I run a later 1680 with long sieve. It has standard rotor. The front concave is small wire with every other wire removed. The middle and rear are large wire with every other removed. Run cover plates on front and half of the middle concave. Install slotted grates on account of baling straw. It does a nice job with that setup. Always picked up swaths, never did any direct so that might be different ballgame. Also you know how farming goes, what works for one guy might not work for the next. Forgot to mention did spring wheat for few years with same setup also and that was good too.
  13. I watched that and it looks kinda like the main boom hyd rams fold up as tree starts falling
  14. Can that clevis be made new cheaper than what CNH is asking nowadays? We run six of that style tractor on farm and our stock of brake clevises are getting a little low. Is any aftermarket jobbers putting them out? Maybe welding them like fellas in video hold up also. Personally never tried but might have to start. Share your knowledge and opinions. Thanks
  15. Different areas have different soil and weather conditions. I feel like frost not much issue where you at. Where I am it is wise to remove black dirt down to hardpan then put fill down usually a dense fill with sand on top. Always build high otherwise future landscaping or driveway maintenance has water running towards building. I feel bad for you to have restrictions like height restrictions and such in your area.
  16. Are you gonna bring in some fill? Keep in mind the hoist height when planning building. Some are awfully tall.
  17. There will be a little difference in the brakes compared to 656/666/686. Discs and actuators are smaller for some reason
  18. Katolight makes a nice pto unit with good surge rating in my opinion. Had a agri power before. They were weak on surge.
  19. They are very scarce in my area and the few there are are extremely overworked. Now the FDA is making more meds prescription only to make things worse. I just curious if large animal/livestock vets are scarce all over or just a regional thing?
  20. Just out of curiosity do you know what agency oversees the certified organic farmers for them to maintain their certified status?
  21. Yep. I hate seeing that happen to people. Usually the trusses are bare minimum heft and spacing is maxed out also. I don't know how snow works in original posters area. Just want them to keep it in mind when planning a build. Probably get away with it but all it takes is the one freak snow situation to come and bring it down.
  22. Is snow loading an issue in your area? It is something we have to consider in our area when planning pole buildings. Not very often but every few years some of the weaker ones collapse.
  23. We on third engine in 247B and that has slight tick to it nowadays. Last two were remans from Cat. I don't think they even Perkins. I want to say shibaura badged Perkins/Cat.
