  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  5. I figured on rtv or the right stuff for the top cover gasket, but for the bevel drive gear bearing retainer and stub shaft cover I would like to use gaskets. We all know how rtv can make parts hard to disassemble. Olson gaskets is sending me some material so I can make my own. Thanks, guys!
  6. Is there a source for the main cover gasket on the rear axle? Also looking for the bevel drive gear bearing retainer gaskets and steer clutch release bearing cover gaskets. Found the seals. Thanks, Robert
  7. Cleaned it better, the number on the ring gear is 58357DA
  8. Thanks guys, we'll get it apart and check numbers, hopefully in the next couple days. Sun is shining and I have hay to bale after 3.5" of rain Friday
  9. After closer inspection, I see there is one tooth damaged on the ring gear. Anyone have a spare? It looks like it should be addressed now while we have steer clutches out
  10. So do I, unfortunately i have a place for the two i got yesterday if they are sound
  11. Got a 55 td9 at auction recently that has been setting inside for nearly 25 yrs. Got it running but steering clutches, both sides are stuck. Does anyone have the manual and could post the pages for disassembly and reassembly? Thanks, Robert
  12. I'm not sure it's a mate, either. The manifold has an ih number stamped in it. I have 2 other manifolds like it, but they have a bigger turbo. I thought I had read that the m&w turbo set up used original hole in the hood? Mine have a 4"+ hole cut further toward radiator. I'd be interested in any info you guys k ol about the turbo set ups. Also, my son and I did get the td9 running this afternoon, but steering clutches are stuck, so we are working on that now. Anyone have a few pages out if the manual to guide us thru that?
  13. Got the pallets of parts mainly for oil coolers for out 4-560 fleet, but should be a few good parts in there for 50 bucks
  14. Went to an auction, gentleman was the ih dealer till 85, then just hobbied on old stuff until his death. Sounded like kids were squabbling a bit. Got a couple goodies, an m&w turbo/manifold for a 560, a couple pallets of misc parts and this td9 with a drott loader and 4 in 1 bucket. Supposed to have new sleeves/pistons, overhauled in the late 90s and ran at that time. Sat in his unheated shed until 2 months ago and is now seized up.
  15. Thanks for the info! Dad has a haybuster 107 that needs openers as well. We've never used it. He got it to remove some row units and convert to 3 pt for planting cover crop between corn rows but never got it accomplished. Might be better off rebuilding the 107 instead of getting the 6200s
