  1. Always had a round muffler on ours. The guy who overhauled the engine stuck a oval muffler on as the one we had on it broke off and I was disappointed at first but it has really grown on me
  2. Best way to prevent from being used therefore not wearing out the TA 😎
  3. Thank you for the clarification. I didn't even know the 06's or swooping it down was a thing. The 1256 I think it was that I saw on tractor house had the wide part of the handle at the lower/bottom and narrow at the top. I mean I guess it would work either way or swooping down depending on the preference
  4. Back in March I finally got around to installing the grab hand on the left hand side of the 856. The cage nut was missing so removed the tin over the steering tower and somehow with pure luck was able to get a long enough bolt down there and stuck through the hole. Mind you the fuel tank mount is in that area, makes things a bit tight and the main reason I held off so long on putting the grab handle on. Real question is it the correct way? I have seen them put on the other way around and now I'm second guessing lol
  5. Funny how all those "advocates" use roads and infrastructure and many other things the government funds with tax dollars of which in part come from animal ag. Not to mention the businesses that animal ag supports directly and indirectly F'ing hypocrites
  6. A little update. Couldn't get it to run at all end of last summer. Parked it and February decided to send it to a mom and pop dealer we do a bit of business with and who works on a little bit of everything. Had burnt valves. Like really bad lol Did a complete out of frame overhaul, new distributor, electronic ignition, new intake and exhaust manifolds. Bunch of other stuff and now have a third tractor with nearly twice it value in repairs 😎😎 but it runs perfect though. Purchased from the original owner nearly 20 years ago I believe it had 3500 or so hrs and now has 7140hrs and I never remember
  7. It's hard to wrap my mind around what those"kids" endured and accomplished. Young people these days have no idea how easy they have it
  8. First year I remember having this happen. Planted June 8th pics were taken June 22nd. It was so dry corn in some spots didn't germinate till like a month after planting while other corn was a couple inches tall. Looked awful and uneven but it ended up yeilding more than most years Almost mowed a turkey nest. Looked like a young hen. Neighbor who owns the field said a day after I took this picture the eggs hatched a mom and chicks made a bee line to the woods Got some ground back. Stopped to pick up fallen limbs and branches. Thanks to emerald ash borers
  9. I have never been able to get interestedJohn Wayne or most westerns from that period
  10. Starline and patz silo unloaders. Glad they are all gone and replace 89 ford f350 single rear wheel. Bought brand new. Seems we worked on it more than drove it. If it didn't have new or nearly new tires on it it had to have 4x4 locked in or else would get stuck on dry pavement. Replaced with a wore out 92 one ton Chevy with a 6.5 diesel thought we were in heaven Overhead doors. Previous owner of the farm had one on the door for the manure spreader. The barn cleaner spreader and tractor are all inside the actual barn. Had to pick it up just right or the cables would jump the spools a
  11. I still prefer Charles Bronson
  12. There have been quite a few big busts this year in our county and the one north in NY state. Problem is one ring gets busted and one or several more pop up. Some make it a couple were going out of state to some big metropolitan areas and bringing it back here Sorry to hear the news Mark. If they are using the supply it might not end well
  13. Thank you for the comments. I'll put up some more photos if I get around to it
