  1. could be i'm not sure I was just looking at the parts book breakdown and it shows a steady bearing inside so I either way id like to take alook inside and see if some flighting is atarting to come apart or whats goin on
  2. working on the 1680 in the shop and seeing some small dents right in the middle of the unloading auger tubing, my question is if I remove the bearing on the end and the ring of bolts would I be able to slide the back half away and take alook inside, I see in the parts book there is a steady bearing in there and I wonder if it's got play in it, never had one of theses apart ever this is a 1989 model with the pins at the 90 elbow
  3. I saw that on the facebook page, I sold some diskers to the kid"s dad a few years ago and I keep thinking I met the young kid while we were dealing and then when I bought the Farmall C from the collection redturbo was selling, I was happy to hear the kid got the tractor, nice to know younger kids than me like IH tractors broke my heart to hear he passed away at such a young age
  4. Never had them in Saskatchewan either till afew years ago, starting to see the odd one now, I've never come across one but it is believed that they come this way hiding on semi trucks comin out of the east side of Canada
  5. yes keeping the semi inside was one of the bigger reasons I built mine so nice not covered in snow and froze up, my ol truck starts a lot easier inside aswell, just wish I would built longer so I could keep the air drill inside
  6. first year I had mine the first thing I thought of was I wanted mine outta the weather plus I hated pulling canvases out, to expensive of a machine to leave outside nice to keep the swather in, we keep one straight cut header inside and one outside and you can sure tell the difference one year does to the nice shine on the header, most of my equipment sits inside few nice days here the guys aren't quite done are still going, a few weeks ago it was looking the fall had come to an end and harvest was ruined
  7. haven't seen any combines goin on stuff that's left but you probably could be combining here not much snow, ground is freezing was -14 this morning would be ok to swath if you were to swath to combine in the spring not to much goin on just fixing afew things and cleaninig and packing away for winter here
  8. with the 8120s carry good fire insurance all the ones that were in my area have burnt up due to the chopper bearing, i'm not exactly sure why it does but they were all chopper bearing related
  9. whats safe moisture for corn? picture makes me miss my ol 1460
  10. harvest is all over here finished up around supper time my old 1680 went down last night had a few issues goin on I didn't want to run it much longer and really wreck something, so the neighbour came over with his green machine and helped finish this off wasn't a lot left today but we gotter done before this supposedly wet weather moves in tomorrow bins are mostly full no empty ones left time to start cleaning things and putting away for winter which a few weeks ago I didn't think was ever gonna happen
  11. rock trap beater bearings are a big enough job either have to take the tire off or the feeder house off to get the shaft out to change the bearings I did it in my 2388 I took the feeder house off but then did a lot more work while I had it off working away here yet down to a half section hope to finish quickly some drizzle weather on Tuesday so hopefully be done or it wont hold us up much
  12. got rolling on wheat today not bad yields, snow took it down abit so really got to use the reels to perk it up otherwise not to bad goin. shut down alittle early being on the ground or close to to the ground risk rocks and mud in unlevel fields but should get going later once this field is done, only thing really wrong is the weather holy geez its cold and heaters don't seem to want to work in anything the 1680 I turned the valve and antifreeze starting dripping out of the roof with no heat, looks like alittle warmer temps are on the way and they are what i'm gonna need to finish this harvest
  13. ya ralph i'd probably start swathing that stuff or atleast some of it, I tried swathing wheat yesterday and it worked for the most part just the ends would catch mud and drag abit usually if I lifted quick and went down it would come off, header tilted and pick up reels worked well alone I have lifters but hate the dang thing and prefer not to use them canola swath tested 14.4 yesterday, day started off nice then the clouds moved in and wind picked up it was cold all day till sundown I read that to on facebook a few taken there lives in alberta although I thought it was east central alberta, no doubt these are stressful times especially when what ever grain you do have off isn't worth a bunch
  14. progress has been hit and miss here to got the peas done early sept and been working on canola since have approx. 180 acres left then all the cereals, had snow earlier in the week put the bearded wheat down quite abit and the non bearded wheat faired out fairly well, hoping for another good drying day tommorow and may try on sunday hopefully its close to 10 moisture then the weather isn't looking to good for Monday night been wondering weither to swath some wheat down just incase things really turn south
  15. inside the compensator block theres a bunch of o rings nothing to much could go wrong in there, how was the O ring on the cover that the pump bolts to? they can bypass pressure if the o ring is no good
