  1. cyclo seed drums

    I thought the drums would interchange if the 400/500 drum was from an 8 row planter. My 6 row 500 only has 6 rows of holes. Thx-Ace
  2. South African Farmers

    The Zimbabweans I have spoken with told me the government gave the land to their political supporters. The black workers were not allowed to come back to the farms because they were not to be trusted. The whole situation was a disaster for Zimbabwe. I think the south African government should allow the tribes to start up their own casinos like the indians in the USA have. It would be better for everyone than giving them farms. IMHO, YMMV Thx-Ace
  3. South African Farmers

    Uhm, in my book they lost control of the country. That is defeat in my book. I agree they are likely to cause starvation with these policies. It seems to me whenever farms are taken from the producers by the government and either redistributed or operated by the state, starvation is likely. Russia, China, Zimbabwe, etc. I Am in contact with some farmers in Zimbabwe and am very familiar with their problems. Thx-Ace
  4. South African Farmers

    Just as a reminder 'to the Victor goes the spoils'. The europeans conquered the africans and took their land. Then the africans conquered the europeans and are taking their land back. Here in the USA the europeans conquered the indians and took their land. The indians are now taking our money in casinos. Probably more profitable than taking the land! I have european and cherokee in my blood so I may have a different perspective. Maybe the euopeans in south africa should offer to let the African tribes open casinos? Thx-Ace
  5. Shopping for pickups, not as fun anymore

    Good old trucks normally bring one to two thousand depending on condition. Like anything old they need work. If anyone is interested in the Ford pm me. I also have a very good 80 dodge d100 I am not using. The first Gen dodge cummins have me hooked. I don't want to drive anything else! Thx-Ace
  6. South African Farmers

    I am concerned for all South Africans. They will probably tread a path similar to Zimbabwe. Farmers will suffer violence, the population will starve and the rulers will gain more wealth and power. South Africa has a strong agricultural traditional and have aided to our world. Thx-Ace
  7. Strange 800 planter

    I am looking around at 800 planters and came across this one on tractorhouse. It is painted black and white? Is there anything else special about this planter. It looks strange to me. Thx-Ace
  8. No, I don't think it came with emblems. It had factory looking stickers when I bought it (15+ years ago) that looked similar to the 66 series stickers. They and the paint were very old if not original when I bought it. There are no holes in the panels for emblems either. He actually uses CIH dealer paint on IH tractors and JD dealer paint on the green ones. His painter thinks he is great but I disagree. The tractor does look alot better than it did when I had it. The sheet metal was rusty except where my loader leaked oil on it! I am not sure of the exact price. My wife says my mind slips sometimes. I just was hoping someone on here bought it. Thx-Ace
  9. Shopping for pickups, not as fun anymore

    Mike, here are some pics of my 78 ford. It has had a fender bender but nothing structural. The biggest problem with this truck is the gas mileage. I bought it and could not afford to drive it! I must have been very close to your place when wewe visited Copper Harbor this summer. Thx-Ace
  10. 5488 engine

    Have you tried Navistar? Thx-Ace
  11. Don't use tees in the hydraulic supply lines! It won't work on an open center hydraulic system. Run the supply hose to the loader, from the loader to the backhoe, then back to the tractor. Thx-Ace
  12. I think it brought 7300. It was a pretty good tractor for its age. Thx-Ace
  13. 86 series 4post value?

    I forgot to mention the tractor is an early model with 2 remotes and has a twin shaft pto. Oddly enough it has a hydraulic seat. Thx-Ace
  14. My old 1456 just sold on auctiontime. Did anyone on here buy it? I traded the 1456 to my friend at dumas and he just sold it on auctiontime. I am just curious. Thx-Ace
  15. 86 series 4post value?

    I am in western Arkansas and I bought the tractor in southwest Arkansas, near Hope. It has been on a cattle ranch for many years pulling a brushog in the summer and feeding hay in the winter. The shifter froze up, probably from sitting outside for decades, and was parked under a pine tree for years. It is three shades of ugly but started up good with a new battery. It drove good when I unhooked the linkage and moved the transmission linkage by hand. After I fix a lot of minor details I think it will be a good tractor. It will take a little body work an paint to get it looking good. I plan to put it to work on the farm but will probably sell it, I have too many tractors... Sorry I don't have any pics yet. I need to get it home then I will get some pics. Thx-Ace
