  1. I have an 18 ft Salford, pulled it with a 7120 if its dry, but when we are trying to dry out wet fields, the 4890 pulls it an 10 to 12 mph. It doesn't turn ground black, never was intended to. It also doesn't incorporate fertilizer, maybe a little but not completely. It is amazing what it will do for wet fields. With warm sunny weather a day will get you into the field to plant. I use it for residue and to level worked fields. For example we had many acres flooded by james river last 2 seasons. Finally got in with a 485 disc last fall, got stuff knocked down but ridged and no mulcher. Salford
  2. Got most of a day in with all working excellent. That is until 5:00, when the serpentine belt shredded itself. Local dealer didnt have it so mrs drove for 2 hrs to get one. Ground hay in the meantime. Finished first field right at dark. Thanks for all the help, Robert
  3. Dad unplugged the monitor on his jd 7000 30 years ago, just looks for seed at ends when he turns around. This newer stuff isnt all bad, just makes you think once in a while
  4. Read this too late, I've got them now, lol. But if you can tell me for sure which ports they go in, that would be awesome!
  5. This what you're talking about? Tech hooked up the new active terminator that I tried and got codes and no go with and now everything works fine!? In the meantime I installed a pto pump setup on the planter, but it keeps spinning the adapter off the pump. Apparently need to change a relief and unloader valve to switch to pto from tractor hydraulics. The mrs headed to Aberdeen to grab those, hopefully be going tomorrow. Thanks for all the help, very much appreciated!
  6. Yes, tractor harness uses the 4 pin active terminator, but has worked for 2 seasons without it? I installed tractor harness when I bought planter in 19, was never instructed on needing the active terminator, would think a complete harness would include all components? We installed the precision meters and down force before start of last season and is operated by the 20/20 display, no crossover between the 2 systems that I know of. The 600 came with planter and dealer had to update software for variable rate prescriptions, everything worked fine first year except for air clutch problems, which
  7. Incorrect point setting can change timing as well. Did it run well when parked? Ground test light and probe negative side of coil while cranking. Should get a clean flash as points open and close. If not points may be pitted, dirty, stuck or not set correctly
  8. The tech claims voltages are correct. Check can go and low at diagnostic connector in cab? Iso pins all look straight and clean. Tech mentioned that terminator was JD number, maybe local deere dealer has the planter terminator, but the one that looks like a module on the cab harness was one of 2 in the state. Not sure why everything worked for 2 seasons without the cab terminator module, or if I really need it. It was around 220. Really only need 600 to fold/raise planter and operate vac fan as meters are precision vdrives.
  9. Bought a 12 1250 16 row front fold planter 3 years ago. Have used it two seasons, half way thru 3rd. Got corn done Friday night and home in shed. Saturday morning it gives an 18001 code on the pro600 and disables the rate ecu. It wont let me unfold or do anything really. Checked power, fuses all good. Its hooked to an mx200 that is not iso bus wired so I installed a universal harness to power 600. Had a tech look at it this morning and he thought there should be a little terminator on the universal harness. There is a plug there but never had a terminator installed. He thought that may have ta
  10. Finally tore into it this spring, front cover was leaking lower right side so pulled that and while apart I pulled oil pump out. It was at high end of spec so I put an asap new one in. Now has 20 psi even at 600 rpm. Fixed a few hyd leaks as well, a few dollars in orings saves a lot of expensive hytran!
  11. Pressure fan is junk, blows fuses nearly immediately. Any aftermarket source for these?
  12. Yup, injection pump timing was terribly retarded. Jr found timing procedure online somewhere and got it set back where it belongs. Runs like it should now
  13. Our 4890 case has been slowly running a little less strong, but doing its job. Son used it all day Thursday and ran fine, but Friday morning it wanted to miss and smoke/ pop out the exhaust. We thought injector was stuck, as fuel was dripping from exhaust manifold joint at back of engine. Temp gauge showed #6 only running about 150 degrees. Pulled #6 injector and it seems to hold pressure and pop around 23-2400 psi with a good spray pattern. Yesterday put it back together and it sounds worse, really popping out the straight pipe and smoking. Now #1 only 150 degrees exhaust and fuel dripping fr
  14. I put a new clutch in my 1586 years ago that made it only a few hours then one release finger broke so clutch wouldn't release, they gave me another pressure plate under warranty but I had to do the work again
  15. Thanks, I thought cab was a little dusty, probably hasn't been working for a while. Ac may need a tune up as well, was a little warm last year
  16. Cleaned air filters today and noticed the cab filter behind the steps was pretty clean so I started tractor to see if fan runs. It didnt. A blower runs when key is on, but I was under the impression that for positive cab pressure, the one under the cab should be running, not the heat/ac blower under the seat. Am I wrong? If I turn fan switch by temp control down, fan speed decreases and stops when switch is turned to off. Thanks, Robert
  17. Definitely will change filter and fluid, not sure if or when it's been serviced last. Tried to raise a 12" auger last fall and it couldn't do it, I'll pull hitch pump and inspect when fluid is drained. I put new mcv pump in my 1586 last winter, shaft bushings were very loose, I'll bet the 806 mcv not far behind
  18. Neighbor wants help on his 806, pulls a 12 ft NH 499 haybine. Says hitch pump is slow. I plumbed a gauge in remote and get 1400 psi dead headed. Relief valve is 1600. I'd say it needs pump. Also, stops for a second when lifting haybine and turning. Lube pressure does drop to near zero when steering against stop in DD, but stays at 14 psi in TA. My book says DD leak in trans. Probably in TA, but anyone seen a jumper tube leak that could cause this? He wonders if a new mcv pump will get him going, at least for awhile? Thanks, Robert

    806 Bolster

    Got a 560 that must have been really abused. All 4 were broke and welded before it lived here. Has had an f10 or F25 farmhand loader mounted most of its life. Broken a couple spindles and knees from moving 2 1500 lb bales at a time but the 4 threaded holes have never given any trouble. As long as there is 3/4" of thread left in the hole I'd square it and add the bushing and possibly a longer bolt. The bolster can be replaced if the repair doesn't work for yoy
  20. About 15 min south of the state fair city of Huron, SD
  21. May have to use different gasket depending on how much material is removed. Gasket thickness sets pump gear clearance I think

    I have some hay and crop ground that borders neighbors pasture along an abandoned right of way. After his cows got into corn a couple times, he put a fence in. We agreed to run fence down center of right of way. He paid for all as I will never run cows there. Brother has pasture that needed new fence, bordering neighbors had no cows so we paid/did all work. Another neighbor has since told me that SD law is to split cost regardless of livestock situation, but broke landowners will never pony up anyway. If you do not need fence for livestock containment, I'd let neighbor worry about fence
  23. My son put this together Nov/Dec of 20. Started as an 89 f350 crew cab long box 460 5 spd. Sold motor trans all body parts for more than he paid for truck. Got 76 crew cab from a buddy, rest of parts came from his stash and a donor f150. Put a new flatbed on it and put in his built 7.3 IDI ih diesel turboed and intercooled and another zf 5 spd. Painted it all blue, cab was brown, fenders 2 tone brown. New carpet and door/window seals, 93 ford crew cab cloth seats. Body not perfect but good enough for a daily driver he says. Needed another truck after sold the 69 f250 in October
  24. You may be able to find someone to ultrasound the ewes. We have a local vet come and check the last ones to lamb about 6 weeks into lambing. Always a few opens. Opens are less on mature ewes but we our replacements always yield some opens. Late gestation the vet can only determine bred or open. If done early in gestation it's my understanding that they can tell you if twins, single, etc. Have heard about traveling person that does this service but have never had it done early here. As mentioned they usually are very fertile. Maybe try to talk to other local sheep producers to see if they know
