  1. Got a dealer 45 miles from me that delivers bulk for free. Open house price this spring was 12.50 hytran, 12 for caseih 15w40
  2. I did that once on dad's 656, after that I put rockers on dry and after a warm up I'd retorque head, easy to see if it was oiling then
  3. Finished corn here on Friday. Last year this field went 187 and all planted, this year half planted and did 58. Glad it got cold early in the week so I could get this done. Kinda freaky driving with one set of dials on the ice,lol. This field avg 17.5% moisture. Had one field close to home that was 16%, but rest we took at 20% + and added alot of water to make a wet corn pile for feed. Had bad green snap from high wind in July and the 30 + inches of rain was a pinch too much and next year looks to be same judging by high levels of water in November
  4. It had a leak at rear of timing case when I got it, pulled cam gear to fix that. I'll have to pressure wash it better to see exactly where leak is now, but it looks like right side where tin cover bolts on, may be front seal. Cold it has 60 plus psi but when warm and you take off at idle, rpms drop to 750 and psi drops to 10 to 12 psi, just long enough to turn lights on then go off as rpms come back. As long as it's not going to hurt it, I'll check it out further after harvest and hay hauling. Really need it as wet a year as it's been. Thanks, Robert
  5. I bought a skid steer in IA, a combine in NE and a corn head in MN. Within 3 years I received a notice from the state that I owed use/sales tax on them. They audit dealerships in neighboring states and if it takes a couple years to catch up with you they want to charge interest too. Buying from a private seller bypasses the tax issue. I think its BS that they want to charge tax on a used piece of equipment, in or out of state purchased. Tax was charged when it was new, should be good enough. Generally the state govt cant spend it wisely anyway
  6. We finished silage 3 weeks ago. Many acres were poor, 30+ inches of rain this season was too much and stunted a lot of it. On higher ground it was nearly cab high. This ground is sandy so we got by ok, got stuck with truck once and left some ruts with cutter. I switched over to dark side this year with the 3950 cutter. This is only picture I took, hope next year is a little drier. Last years riverbottom was much better
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. My farm aid reel mixer wagon works good too, the real supports the bale so it doesn't fall in
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. That looks great! I'll round up some fittings and go to work, thanks!
  15. 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
