  1. I made a seal installing tool from an old new Holland belt style bale thrower. Just cut one end off, padded the rough edge with duct tape. It was the correct diameter to set the seal. cab
  2. I have a prediction. South Dakota is going to spend hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars in trying to defend this thing in court. It should be very educational. The lesson to be learned is that the bill of rights and the constitution were designed to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority. judging from this series of posts, the majority on here being Evangelical Christians who can't seem to follow the forum rules preventing the discussions of religion and politics. cab
  3. I had a similar problem with one of my 706's (i have 3). There was a piece of rust partially blocking the passage that the shutoff solenoid closes. I used a piece of piano wire to poke it free and rinsed it away with starting fluid. cab
  4. MY manual is 'international trailing plate-type planter (four row adjustable ) (six row narrow) part no1096 421 R1. There are only a few pages you should need. PM me with your mailing address, row spacing (distance center to center of row units ) and plate cell count usually 16 or 24 for corn. I'll mail you a hard copy of the charts you need. no charge. cab
  5. This is good news. You already have several plant spacing's available just by rearranging the sprockets you have. The shafts both came with two gears that can be used by changing removable hex centered sprockets. You merely have to rearrange the location of the hex sprockets to line up with the small or large sprocket on the shafts. You remove the chains from the spring loaded idlers so that you can remove the linch pin and spacers. flipping the sprocket around until it lines up with a different gear. Play with it, you can figure it out. The hex plate sprockets have a number on them telling how many pairs of teeth they have. you use this information and the row spacing along with the number of seed holes in the plate to determine which chart in the book to use. If given a choice, I prefer to plant large rounds for corn as they are less apt to plant any doubles. cab
  6. Does the hex shaft that the wheel drives have sprockets that drive another hex shaft that drives the planter units? The online parts books don't show a two row planter, so this may be a custom fabrication. The four and six row plate planters have an assembly on the right end of the driven shaft with chains going to changeable sprockets that run the shaft that drives the planter units. The changeable sprockets have a hex hole and three little prongs that fit tight on an idler shaft fitting. Sprockets are for number 40 chain and have from 20 to 34 teeth. If your planter doesn't have this assembly and drives the planter shaft directly, you will be in the fabrication business. Weld a hubs (hex) and number 40 plate sprockets. cab
  7. I run an 800 6 row plate planter, so I may be able to help. first, we need to know what you have. Does it have a tongue and wheels with lift cylinders? or does it mount on a three point hitch? Is there a chain (2040) that goes from the wheels to a shaft on the planter or is the row unit run by a press wheel that is part of the row unit? MY expertise covers those planters run by a chain from the transport wheels to a shaft with sprockets on the right end (when viewer from the rear of the planter). cab
  8. With 18.4 -26 tires, height 139 3/4 inches, width with ladder 136 inches, length 248 1/2 from front of feeder house to rear without spreader or chopper Grain bin with extensions 96 to 100 bu. Unless you're a glutton for punishment, make sure it has a feeder house to run 800 series heads. Problem areas are mainly due to poor maintenance Bottom of bin rust out, rust out under cross augers, cross auger tubes rotting out, holes developing in the shaker pan under the cylinder (best fixed in place using adhesive and self drilling self tapping screws to install a paatch) to remove the shaker assembly would be a great way to learn what an ordeal is. Make sure that the fixed side of the cylinder drive pulley doesn't move on the cylinder shaft -it would mean key way and shaft are both worn. cab
  9. When I read the title, I was sure that the department of health was out to get murky dismal for the stench of all the dead horses he keeps beating on. cab
  10. I switched my sprayer to 30 inches so 2,4-D wouldn't get into the whorls of the corn . thought it was fine to spray normal crop rotation, wound up with streaking and poor control between the nozzles. I am changing back to 20 inch centers for the bulk of my spraying. cab

    New joke

    Cover crops , brush, bare soil or whatever, there's always some BTO willing to take on a new field and outbidding the current farmer. cab
  12. from my owners manual, 615 tank holds 31 gallons -looks to be the same size as a 303. The 715 tank holds 45 gallons 403 tanks look to be the same size. A long day shelling corn will drain either one of them. In small grains, by the time the dew dries off, the tank will likely last until things start to get tough in the evening. cab
  13. 1/4 of what's left after deer get done most likely won't cover your costs or time. A quarter crop seems like a cheep way to get your food plots planted. I have planted a five acre plot for the neighbor in the past. by fall, there was nary an ear to be found. cab
  14. Be careful what you wish for. I have a field that a badger spent one night digging out ground squirrels. A dozen woodchucks couldn't pile up that much dirt if you gave them a month and paid them overtime. cab
  15. Chilton manuals are available online at the mel- Michigan Electronic Library. They don't take up a lot of space that way. Hopefully you don't get grease on your key board. cab
