  1. I'm looking for a factory reproduction muffler for a Farmall A, and I can't remember who makes them. I'm not a fan of the Stanley mufflers and I seem to recall a Red Power advertiser that started making them to factory specs. Anybody have a link?
  2. Thanks everyone for the ideas! I plan to start working on it tonight and will post back when I find the culprit.
  3. It seems like the issue is in the hub to axle placement. It does wobble slightly side to side but most of the issue is non coincentric to the axle.
  4. The 856 is getting a new pair of rear tires this week. Now seems like a good time to try and rectify the whomp-whomp-whomp in road gear. Based on my crude flat bar and vise grip measurements, one wheel is roughly 1" out of round and the other is slightly more. It doesn't sound like much, but when they get in sync (more so out of sync), it can be a violent ride above 11mph with a 300 gal 3 pt sprayer. I've had the wedge locks off before to narrow to 30" rows and the problem was noticably worse afterwards. It is not noticable when the axle mount duals are on, but I don't want the duals for post emerge spraying. Any suggestions on how to better center these wheels?
  5. I've just started using a new to me 656 hydro and there is no neutral in the hydro handle. I literally cannot find a position where it's not creeping. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Thank you. I guess I was reading too much into it.
  7. All hydraulic functions on my 856 have gotten intermittent to non-existent with a whine in the pump indicative of starving for oil. After pulling the filter i found it and the suction screen covered in a gray slime, roughly the consistency of snot. Filters and hydraulic oil were changed about 200 hrs ago (2 years) and the hytran has no signs of water. Any ideas on the cause of or solution to the slime? I'm familiar with algae in fuel, is this the same thing? Should I flush the rear with diesel? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
