  1. ive never replaced one of those under the chopper, my 7088 has bolt on wear plates under the chopper that i replaced when i bought it way nicer than replacing the whole pan i also put all new chopper blades in to i went with redekopp blades a few more bucks but way nicer chopping of straw, the knives are kinda spaced poorly cant get a strong arm or a ratchet in there just a wrench and usually have to hit with a hammer to get them loose still working on equipment here aswell combines are done my headers is almost done just pulled the swather out last night, just need to replace a canvas and a oil change and it should be ready and clean out a couple bins yet Crops are still progressing the peas are shutting down the canola is just about done flowering i looked at the first wheat i seeded last night and the seeds were about 3/4 developed, cloudy a lot but no rain has fallen really hope we could catch a thunder storm but they seem to be going north and south of us, either it rain in the next week or dont rain at all and get harvest under way then rain after harvest as holy i hope we get a lot of snow this winter or we'll be going into a dry next year with unreal fertilizer cost
  2. i dont have any pictures but i finally bought my grandpa 706 home after being gone for 30ish yrs its been completely rebuilt in its life once before and i changed the oil and found copper colored shards stuck to the oil drain plug this one is a 1967 model so got the 310 in it so its currently parked till winter when we got time to pull the pan and see whats goin on, still has really good oil pressure was the biggest tractor in our area when grandpa bought it got around 7500hrs on it currently
  3. southland trucks in lethbridge ab said the International name will carry on into the future
  4. what kind of yields are you neighbors to the south pulling off from everything i see looks to be quite a good crop there this year even in kansas aswell
  5. thanks guys i'll give all the ideas a look at here the next time i get a moment, yes i unhooked the generator a while back already i always unhook the battery aswell when i'm not working on it
  6. things are moving along here aswell had about a half inch all together in random showers, perked things up aswell but woulda liked more, peas and canola and hanging in nice but my cereals are short the heads are nice looking but short so farm comin out so hopefully it stretches' abit more the peas are poding out and canola is mostly in full bloom and branching out, was a cool couple days but looks like were heading back into the oven again for more warm weather but hoping to catch a thunderstorm or 2 in next couple days
  7. both but ive mainly been watching points while turning it over
  8. yes i bought a new coil at napa, i found my load tester and the battery holds a charge but does seem to turn over slower than i expected, but this is my first 6 volt system tractor, ive been putting a charger on it and turning it over to make it really spin for a few seconds to see if theres spark,
  9. i'm sure the system is positive ground, as the generator and the starter part number come up as 6 V i'm testing just with a test light at the moment i cant find a ohm meter, just when i touch the coil bolt on the outside of the distributer it lights up and when i turn it over it sorta dims abit like its pulsing a spark but i cant physically see a spark between the points, the only thing i can sorta think of right now is the on off switch isnt doing anything cause nothing changed when i pull it out or push it in as i still have power to everything, both sides of the coil and the points
  10. finally getting alittle rain so back into the shop working on the C i bought a new condensor and points and no change, i don't know what way to go now i'm kinda lost now i still have power at the point just no spark
  11. yesterday was crazy hot crew showed up and changed my sprayer tires over to the skinnys for desicating and drove it back into the shed for a month i hope went down to Rouleau to the ritchie bros yard to look at some stuff, crops vary all over the country drive into some really nice stuff and some ugly looking stuff, i'm still hoping for an average year here yet but we gonna need alittle help from above to make it happen quite a light show here tonight but no moisture to show for it
  12. my 1680 had the standard caseih bars in it with harvest service concaves and it did real well in canola to wheat, also agree with Jass1660 to tight will have more white caps you can turn the sieves tighter to rethrash but then if the wheat it to dry your can grind up wheat to, some white caps are normal, remember its a combine not a grain cleaner
  13. finished crop spraying a few days ago wasted no time washing it out and off and driving into the shed for the summer, didn't want this hot dry sun beating on it being a lot of the sprayer is rubber and plastic and keep the paint somewhat good took a drive to swift current yesterday to look at a combine and there's a lot of sad crops once you get down by the river, salesman i talked to said south of swift is just on the border of crop failure so i consider myself lucky with what i got i just hope i can catch a thunder storm or 2 in the next few days to keep it going
  14. would you suppose the run and stop switch could be bad not telling it to fire even with power at the points?? just a though i had in my travels today
  15. this tractor doesnt have one of those square boxes so i'm guessing the points are maybe bad, i filed them a touch and there's power there but just no spark really odd but i'm not even sure of the previous owner even had it running can everything (pints/ condenser) be changed in the distributor on the tractor or be taken off for repairs?
