  1. Used this 7120 to chop silage, by the end of the field, the oil light/stop engine lights would come on at idle, but go off when idled up to 1000. It did it only Intermittently. I put a gauge on a port towards back of block when I got home. Tractor warm but probably not as warm as when chopping, had 50+ at 2200, 18 at 850 idle. Left gauge on while using it for other chores. Lately has been running around 16 at idle, if I deadhead a remote it will pull idle down to 700, lights come on, pressure stays at 10lbs. I think sender is supposed to be set at around 10 lbs, so electrics I think are doing they're job. Is it time for bearings? Has 13450 hrs on it, supposed to have been overhauled at around 5k for oil consumption. I did notice a oil leak at right side of front cover during chopping, but haven't really noticed a puddle since then. Oil is at full mark now, after chopping for probably 30-35hours level was at bottom of cross hatches. I use caseih 15-40 oil, have been using napa filters. I replaced head gasket in June, but didnt replace the aluminum oil tube for rockers. Could that have cracked? Oil pumps ever get weak? Also had pan off to replace rear main and drive plate, but if suction tube came loose, wouldn't have any pressure, right?
  2. Are they easy to open up? Caseih tech told me that parts tend to fly out, he said either lubricate and they work, or replace
  3. Just wondering if anyone on here has a planter equipped with precision planting parts, such as deltaforce hyd down pressure, clean sweep and vset2 electric seed meters. I have a 12 cih 1250 planter that I'm pondering putting pp stuff on. Mostly because of variable ground that I notill and the irregular plots that have a lot of overlap. The 1250 has hyd drive and air clutches, but 2 failed this year, they would shut off but not reengage until I got out and tapped on them. Just looking for good/ bad on this stuff, thanks Robert
  4. My farm aid reel mixer wagon works good too, the real supports the bale so it doesn't fall in
  5. I've had a parker 839 behind my 7120 for 6 years now. Holds 800 plus depending on how you fill it and test weight. If I have an extra driver we dump on the go except for final fill, then we stop. Never had a chain on 3 pt. Balanced pretty well, I do have one riverbottom field that has to come out a steep hill, about 5-600 bushel is all it wants coming up that. Otherwise you just stay out of wet spots in the field. Just because it holds 800 doesn't mean it always has to be full. I started out with a 1210 JD cart with extensions that holds about 450, but the tires on that cut more tracks than the parker does with bigger tires
  6. Dad bought a super m 30 years ago from that place, still have it. I've been by that place many times as well. We'll be shipping a couple loads of fats to sfrl this evening for the sale on Wednesday
  7. First one is an 03 9400, 435hp Cummins 10 spd, 1,034,000 miles pulling my 08 Maurer steel 40' grain trailer Second one is 78 s1600 ex fire truck, 7.3L IDI Ford and a 4 and 2 spd, with an old Paul gravel box, this is our wet distillers and gravel hauler, about 8 ton of distillers Last one is my sons 81 Freightliner cabover, 400hp 855 Cummins 13 spd, 6xx,000 miles pulling my 48' hay trailer
  8. That looks great! I'll round up some fittings and go to work, thanks!
  9. Anyone know of a cheaper source for the hydraulic system supply hose/pipe that feeds the remotes? Looks like cih wants 475 for one number, other number nla. Got a spare used one for 460, but I think the 560 is different, thanks, Robert

    74 1700 engine

    Took the donor apart, it was just a rering job, and looks like original cam, lifters are slightly cupped. Fuel pump eccentric wasn't installed properly and bolt was loose. Standard pistons with a little wear on front 2 cylinders. We'll have it checked at machine shop. Where is a good place to get parts? Dad and brother pulled truck engine, I'll look for number on block today. Pan had 3 gallons of antifreeze in it, guessing spun bearing, broken rod or dropped valve, check further today, thanks

    74 1700 engine

    Dad's 74 1700 truck engine blew up last fall. Pulling it now, but made a lot of noise and locked up, guessing dropped a valve or spun a bearing. How can I find out what engine it is? He has a 345 that he got a few years ago supposed to be freshly overhauled, pickup it was for burned in a garage fire. The original engine has a 4 bbl Holley and exhaust manifolds have 3 bolt flange for the pipe. Donor is 2 bbl and 2 bolt exhaust pipe flange manifolds. We will tear the 345 down and reseal and possibly rering since it's been setting for over 10 years. Will manifolds swap from one to the other? If this had a 392, will the 345 bolt in its place? Thanks, Robert
  12. We dont use them as much as in my childhood either. Dad hated a haybine, so we mowed everything. Last few years I use a haybine where possible and mowers on hills and rocky ground. Brother mows about 200 acres/yr and I use haybine on 50 acres alfalfa 3-4 times/yr and on most of a quarter of grass/alf mix. I only use mowers now on about 150 acres of grass. All the riverbottom crap we used to hay is now farmed. Still have plenty of hay and ground is insurable and more productive
  13. Bearing number is MR 1205EL, this is an NTN Bearing. May have to clean up the inside of the pitman arm if the center race of bearing wont seat on bearing. Hopefully pictures will give a better idea how to get the pin out. Basically use the bar as a lever, pivoting on the old bearing race that I use for a spacer. An old guy at Aberdeen, SD rebuilt these mower boxes and showed me how to get them apart. The new bearing works better for us, I haven't replaced one out of our 2 sets of double mowers in 4 yrs. Ours sit outside over the winter, and I've found that storing them up in the air with the head off the ground has made a huge difference.
  14. The pivot pin is tapered and can be tough to remove. Center of pin is tapped for 1/2" coarse threads where usually an Allen head set screw is. Remove the set screw, sometimes it is necessary to weld a nut onto the set screw if the Allen head strips out. Then I use a 1/2" bolt to bolt on a piece of flat steel, actually a broken piece of a feeder house bar from a 1440 combine. Need a spacer that the pin will fit thru. Put it between your bar and lower part of the gearbox. Tighten bolt securely then use a heavy hammer to hit end of steel bar. Usually a few whacks and it's out. There is a self aligning 2 piece pivot bearing available that has much more life than a standard ball bearing. I'm not good at explaining my methods, but I'll try to get a picture tomorrow of the tools

    crate strapping

    We call that feed bunk banding here. Get it from a local lumberyard
