  1. If I remember right, remove filter and then remove the adapter nut that filter screws onto. Then push it thru the housing. We're up in SD and haven't had trouble without the heater during winter, just run #1 during coldest months
  2. We have popped it out after filter is removed then tapped hole with 1/2" pipe thread tap and install plug from the bottom, as long as you dont need the heater. A little hard to keep tap straight and square in hole from bottom going up but can be done.
  3. I usually bale about 100 corn stalk bales for bedding for sheep barn and calving pen. Have a neighbor who chops/windrows in one pass, makes very nice bedding that can be spread by hand with a pitchfork. Have been using skid steer for last 8 yrs, but still best way to bale them. Last year he broke down, so we raked with an 18 wheel v rake. Much courser in the bale, and it is hard on rake and baler pickup teeth. Haven't replaced a tooth in pickup last 7 yrs on 2 different balers, but have a dozen to put in after last years taking corn stalks. Best route as mentioned is to have cows process the r
  4. Worked on a buddies 5.4 that showed misfire, we swapped coils around with no change. Pulled fuel injectors out and just blew them out with compressed air, put them back and has been running great for 5k now and counting
  5. Yes, hand clutch is probably correct term, sorry. He'd like to get it back to how it was when he grew up. Have to see what hes actually still got and what he needs. Anyone know of a take off unit or one for sale?
  6. Got a neighbor with an M with a few M&W add ons. The clutches wore out years ago on the live pto attachment and was removed. He is looking for parts or a replacement unit, is there any available? I've never seen one personally, anyone have pictures? Thanks, Robert
  7. Hi, all, I have a friend who is trying to clean up his folks equipment after his father passed a year ago. They have a 211 pay scraper they would like to sell, but do t have a clue on value. It looks like decent condition but I have only seen it from the road at 70 mph. His dad had a dream to build his own fishing pond and had used it for that purpose. Any ballpark estimates on a selling price? Thanks, Robert
  8. Had a fuel leak and broke clean grain auger first night of wet corn. Fixed those next day then an hour later the double sided cleaning system drive belt let go. Got that replaced along with the return elevator drive chain and fired it up to see air screen not moving, so pulled that off to clean debris from behind and found 1 roller bearing out as well. Fixed that and next day the 5/8" all thread for adjusting separator drive belt let go. But Thursday and Friday went great and we finished the pile. Wife runs the 2388 and was ready to quit, lol
  9. Took these this morning as we finished our wet corn pile
  10. Rowse still puts these together, but this is a set my grandpa bought in the early eighties. We dont put up as much hay now, but they can knock down a lot of hay in a day. I mostly use them for tougher ground and ditches. Alfalfa and flat fields we use an 18' 1475 haybine
  11. Getting closer, this is the lower hill sides along the James River. I usually farm the actual riverbottom and up top, just hay the hills a little. Neighbor rents higher up hills and corn stalks for fall grazing. No water on mine except for flooding last 2 years, lol. Got 9 miles of road ditches and about 15 acres in another spot to do yet
  12. As an exhibitor, I had the easy job, haul some equipment in and out. The hard work was putting it together and X2! The equipment on display was excellent and attendance on Saturday was pretty good. Less people on last two days, but I didn't have any trouble finding someone to talk to at any time, barely made it through some of the buildings. It was awesome to see a somewhat normal gathering, my 81 yo dad was very pleased. He has been disappointed with the cancellation of nearly every farm show for this season, but during the roundup he was grinning from ear to ear! Hats off to the organizers f
  13. Yes, wonderful to talk to you all! Anyone stopping by tomorrow, or will everyone be heading out by then?
