  1. Make sure to roll down hill only in DD, in TA bad things happen
  2. Looks good! How was the hay crop there? We got by pretty good here but was less than last year. Sure could use some moisture!
  3. Shorten the link between the clutch and ta clutch release shafts half turn at a time until it doesn't bind
  4. I have a 86 series starter on my 560, it can be clocked in many positions, I didnt think 806 starter was. Dad had one on his 560, believe the steering shaft bracket fits around the solenoid bump. This is a picture of my 560 w a 10/1486 starter. The hydraulic pressure line needs a slight bend to clear starter
  5. I think diesel has more head bolts than a gas, and in different places
  6. I pull an 06 summers 90' with my 7120, had this one since 13, before this pulled an older dragging boom 90' summers for about 8 years. Like tractorholic said, one of the best investments I've ever made. Around 1500 acres per year sprayed twice. Local ag dealers get 7 plus per acre. The sprayer pays for itself pretty quick. Would be nice to upgrade to a self propelled
  7. May have to shift down a gear on that tall stuff
  8. Isnt there still 2 small half moon keys to lock release bearing carrier onto shaft? I was thinking the set score just kept carrier from moving side to side?
  9. Got the 4408 locked down. Was my cousin's, she added and bought new in 15. One year had green snap bad and another had hail and last year he hired harvest done. Only had maybe 2k acres on it. Should keep the mrs happy if we dont break down, shes the combine operator
  10. We got by ok, but 2208 seemed bad on butt shelling and had a few stalk roll bolts break or spin out. Also broke a couple stalk roll shafts. Otherwise it worked fine, but it is time to upgrade.
  11. Upgraded the 2388 to a 7088 and need a corn head. Just wondering what you guys know/think about either of these. My cousin has a 4408 that has maybe a couple thousand acres on it that I could deal with him on. His comparison was like a 1066 to an 8950, lol. Had a 2208 and got by ok with it, but time to get something better, thanks
  12. The inside of filter touches a round plate in the housing that can be removed, should be a square cut oring there. Round one is for thumbscrew cover on an 86 series. Should also be an egg shaped gasket for the 806 cover. Same filter for IH 06, 56, 66, 86 series. I use napa filters and the box has all that in it
  13. The parts rear is 2000 serial #s apart, both 62,xxx and above, hope to get it apart this weekend
  14. There is a coupler between TA and clutch shaft that can strip out, or splines in TA clutch disc can let go. If TA is good it should still move in TA just not direct. Have to start pulling covers and look for movement
  15. We have a 42 ft rowse dump rake, used it for 20 plus years until we finally upgraded to an 18 wheel v rake. Still have rake and still use the rowse double 9 mowers. Rake teeth and dump linkages were getting pretty worn out.
  16. This 560 has a 1486 starter on it, I had to bend hyd pressure line just a bit to get it to fit. Then I put a glow plug relay on off of a ford powerstroke diesel to power up the rethreaded powerstroke glow plugs. I used 6.0 ford glow plug harnesses. It has a block heater set to come on about 2 hrs before I need it in the morning and I fashioned plywood engine covers to also hold heat in. At night it sits in an open lean to so it's out of the wind. Seldom run #1 fuel in it, only when -20° lows for an extended period. I add power service to the fuel. Cab has a heater and radio, so it's almost like a new tractor, just much more affordable!
  17. Yes, F25. Had an F10 for years on it, looks similar but uses cables for tilt function operated by a cylinder within the square tube arm. This tractor and loader stays on concrete in a bunker silo, used daily. Cheap and handy
  18. Just have to strip it down a little, have a parts tractor so hopefully mostly labor and not much $, I'll get some pics during the project
  19. The chore 560 stopped moving yesterday. Applying the right brake got it back to shop. Pulled the pto to find that the bull gear turns but not axle, shavings in bottom of housing. Never heard of splines stripping like that. Top has to come off to get gear out, has cab and loader on it too. Oh well, supposed to be 100 next few days and shop ac is working
  20. Latest addition here. Neighbor got this from a jockey for 1k. He wanted the one nearly new 15.5 rear. Other was rotten along with rim. Been setting for 5 years. Hooked on and pulled it about 500 feet and it was running. Changed fuel filters and threw on this $75 set of auction 20.8s to test drive. Seems to run good, PS works but nothing happens when pull TA, just stays in direct. Son offered him 600 and we will dismount tire for him. Looks like a monster with the 20.8s
  21. We tried roundup ready sweet corn a few years back but it tasted more like field than sweet corn. Been conventional ever since. I usually have a little chemical left from conventional field corn and spray it with my 4 wheeler sprayer. Seed dealer gives me 3 to 4 lbs per year.
  22. Yup, wasnt too bad. Cleaned it up with pressure washer and removed grill and didn't take long to swap them out. I just left the foam out in that corner under the radiator
  23. Are you meaning the radiator mounting stud? Can I get to that without pulling radiator mounting plate? I replaced radiator a few years back and remember it wasn't fun
  24. Any advice on replacing oil cooler hoses on my 7120? Looks very tight to get them slid out under radiator and engine front cover?
  25. When I start my 560D in the winter at 0 or below it takes 30 seconds to start the needle moving
