  1. 615 spike

    I'm free!!

    I thought the wet towel thing had to do with urinary incontinence. cab
  2. Married his daughter who at the time was Hyde's book keeper. We live a mile and a half south of the Lakeview State Police post.
  3. When my father in law was alive, He was a parts man at Hyde Equipment , an IH dealer at Lakeview, Mi. When he went out on service calls for balers not tying, the first thing he did was install New Holland twine. it often eliminated the problem and at least gave him a consistent starting point. cab
  4. PM me with your address, I'll mail you a paper copy of the charts from my 800 trailer planter book. Our current printer-scanner is not compatible with my xp computer to allow easy email of such things. cab
  5. It sounds like you have a device to separate buck-horn seeds from the clover.. Seeds are about the same size, but the buck-horn seeds have little stickers on them that would stick to the felt rollers. important if you don't want to plant buck-horn. cab
  6. I have an 800 6 row plate.. things to check Is the bottom plate that the seeds rub against still flat? Seeds going around the outside of the plate tend to wear a groove in their path. the deeper the groove, the more seed (at $$$ per bag)gets planted. JB weld and a drywall knife will level them for a season . I suppose someone with a better welder could fill and grind things flat. next check the little box at the bottom of the hopper to make sure the seed knockers and levelers travel freely. There is a rubber sweep on the edge of it that can get worn to the point that seed will feed from
  7. It depends on what color tractor you want. Red, you/re ok. Green and yellow--you must be really sick. cab
  8. What sizes will you be needing? Should the off brands (anything but Carhartt ) be labeled to indicate that they are part of a scientific test and not a personal preference by some cheapskate? I am familiar with the problem, good luck on finding a cure other than constipation,. cab
  9. 715 chassis book has ten pages on R&R for final drives. If you want a copy, pm me with your address. cab
  10. In the service manual for a 715 there are specifications for the amount of preload you tighten the bearings to, also how to measure it . If you need such info, I can look it up. cab
  11. If you know fish are present, you at least have some chance of catching them. Setting over barren water not so much. I have a friend Tom lives in the UP- fishes lake superior. He has a camera. Helps avoid little fish and is entertaining to watch he says. One of his friends in a neighboring shack lost his camera last thing he saw was the throat of a giant pike. cab
  12. My days of fishing daily all winter and boring hundreds of holes by hand are long gone. Thanks to electric augers, I can still ice fish. Does anyone have recommendations for a camera so that I will at least know there are fish under me? thanks cab
  13. They are for walking in tall grass. they act like the dividers on the ends of my 303 combine header. cab

    Join the democratic party! A flood of conservative minded voters (say thirty million or so ) would shift it's internal balance farther to the right and and thwart the liberals far more than a opposing party would. cab
  15. Whenever someone gives me a quote on the maple logs in my woodlot, it always figures up less than what it would bring as firewood. cab
  16. little boxes on the hillside and they all look just the same. Old song same picture cab
  17. I had a 706 gas that did that. turns out that the gasket I used for the oil filter base did not match the pattern of the internal channels of the base. bolt holes lined up outside edges were fine. gasket set had more than one filter base gasket. I chose the wrong one. cab
  18. I thought everyone put their glass frames over their ears. cab
  19. What you measured is overall cartridge length.which changes with bullet length and seating depth . you need to measure from the base to the middle of the shoulder to determine if the head space is different. cab
  20. I run a 615 which is the same but a straw walker narrower. Manual is a good place to start. Usually run the fan about 900 , cylinder speed almost always with the large pulley on the beater shaft, smaller one down below. The combine will let you know if the beans are actually ready to run. If they are too tough, lots of pods in the bin--increase cylinder speed. lots of splits, slow it down. Wrapping around the auger, too tough, cut them free with a saws all and wait for dryer conditions. cab
  21. I have some laying around from combines. I'll need more dimensions to know if any of them will fit. probably won't have the outer screen. Limbs along the edge of the field tend to dislodge them. let me know length diameter etc. cab
  22. Friction of the bottom of the furrow against the nut will loosen right hand thread plow bolts. That same friction tends to tighten left hand threaded nuts. cab
