  1. Have you thought of trying a chisel plow instead of a disk ?
  2. I sure would like to find a 48” mower deck to replace mine. I have a 312-8 that I bought new I think in 1988. I have over 2300 hours on it and it starts and runs great, but the deck is rusting thru in places so probably another year I will have to retire it if I can”t find a replacement deck. You can get the all the parts except the deck. Anyone know of a wheel horse salvage yard that I could contact? Thanks
  3. We got a set of cat3 from A&i for our imported 5250 with the claw links
  4. I think you are thinking of what is now Empire tractor in Waterloo on rt 318. Years ago there was F& W equipment in Geneva that had a narrow front IH that had a boom lift mounted and was driven in reverse like a forklift. That was a beast of a machine at the time.

  8. We bought #13 built in 1971. It is used for cabbage that is going to a sauerkraut plant for immediate processing. Ours was mounted on an 826hydro ( gold demonstrater ) that we bought just for this use. Think of the harvester being on blocks and then you back into it with the 8” channel over the top of the rear axle. We would take the forklift and pick up the tractor’s front axle until the holes line up witha block that is mounted midsection of the tractor. 2 1” bolts are installed on each side and then we drop the front axle off of the tractor. Ours was built with it’s own front axle so we j

  10. CIHTECH, looking at the parts online it only shows a delivery valve spring which is on the side. Am I missing another that is within another part. The diagram didn’t show the top coming apart. Thanks
  11. Thanks for the help, i’ll Get back to it in a couple of days and let you know how we make out.
  12. Yes, we move it by hand at the pump with no change. Thanks
  13. I was disking , running at 2200 rpms when the motor dropped to about 700rpms. It was like a switch was flipped when it dropped. Got it unhooked and got to the shop with only idle speed. I move the throttle but there isn’t any change to the rpms. We got the fuel tank off , dumped it out and there wasn’t anything to be found. The lines were clear, so we remounted the tank and put new fuel filters on and still no difference. Mind you that it starts right up but no increase in rpms past about 7-800. Next we put a new fuel pump on, still no change. When we checked the fuel filters they are 3/4 ful
  14. Why would one kind of battery corrode cables more than others? I never heard that before and yes we use interstate batteries and there is corrosion on some pieces of equipment. I
  15. having never looked close at one of these shellers could you tell me how the kernels are thrashed off the cob compared to a combine. it appears to be a whole lot simpler than a 1460. thanks
