  1. Found some with no part number attached in some NOS parts. The size is 1/2 inch ID x 1 inch OD x about 1/8 inch thick. Anyone know what they are for?
  2. Model C-14 D Disc Harrow Plow A rare piece. Wherever did you find such a treasure???
  3. Can't help wondering, what red tractor are you picking up in southern Illinois? ??
  4. There is a 782 D for sale now over on the Vine at the Farmall Cub site.
  5. I read the manual too on my 82. They look sealed to me. Can find any place to grease so I have been running the machine. I'd say if you have using your machine annually since new, you must be OK! Keep on combining!!
  6. Looks like Phragmites. Probably be hard to get rid of.
  7. Just got the info. The 6788 sold for 9000. Both of the 3788's sold for 7000 each.
  8. Don't know about the 6788. It was hotter than four barrels of he double hockey sticks so I left after the older tractors sold. Had other stuff to do anyway. I will check and see what the 6788 brought and post back tonight.
  9. Yep, I went. And first I must say that the prices I see on Yesterday's Tractors those sellers are dreaming. Here are a few prices to give you an idea. Big crowd attended. Three H tractors, running, looked good sold for 500-1200. Tires made price difference. Tractors numbered 6, 10, 3 on auction photos. Super M, swartzWF, LH, PS, M&w governor, runs. Looked OK. 950 400, IPTO, TA, drawbar. Looked good. Ran good. 1200 300 with one junk rim and tire. FH and ran good. 1200 300 painted like a 350. FH, looked and ran good. 1400 Super H, real late stage 1 with some stage 2 features. Distillate tractor, good tires, good runner, best buy that day at 725. Five M's, all non runners brought between 200 and 725 apiece. #27 in photos sold for725. # 25 sold for 400. 806 gas, NF, FH, looked and ran good. With spirited bidding, the late owners brother took it home for 4750. 1206 with cab. Non runner. Pretty rough. 3000 1206 no cab. Cranked on it quite a bit giving it ether to no avail. They swore it ran the day before. 8000 There you have a sampling of prices. Let's hear some thoughts! PS: Boots, I've got you two standard pages of brief descriptions and prices. Too dang much to type it all here.
  10. Easy. You said the serial number plate is intact. Plate is on left side of 560,right side of 460. Which side of tractor is your plate on?
  11. James, I think the answer to your original question would be the size of the barn depends on how many tiers high you hang (vertically ). Using 1200 sticks of tobacco per acre, 12ft tiers(barn posts distance apart)that are 4ft apart, I would hang 20 sticks. Using the figure of a barn 5 rooms wide (12×20ft) you would hang 100 sticks. So you need to have a length of 144ft. Only hanging one tier high the barn size would be 20x144ft. That is not practical nor cost efficient. So we are going higher. Say we keep the same width and hang 3 tiers high. Then the dimensions become 20x48ft. In the real world of tobacco, most barns are much higher and wider. Hope this explanation helps. And yes, I have grown and harvested a lot of burley tobacco.
  12. Can't help you with it being the oldest but may very well be. Did you find those tractors in Ky by any chance?
  13. The manual called then "Tall Corn Attachments ". They were an option.
