  1. Well! , we got into the field with the 560D and the Massey Fergie 224 baler. This is the present hot set up. Just tickled RED with joy after the late night preparations mentioned in prior posting, praises ,field full of bales ready for 560D to pull wagon to load. We’re pouring it on !

    it’s raining today but hasn’t put the Red fire out of the hard work to get hay up . 
    enjoy ! As ever ! Pour it on !

  2. Norm :there’s not one sanction pull that will let me use anything but Carter ,Zenith of marvel sheds on my super C  around me. So what is the advantage of  aftermarket carburetor?  Fuel economy in the field ? Whats the payback in time ? 6 months ! .  Not buying anything with out a less than 6 month payback if I’m using the tractor every day . I’m not  using it daily. 
    NATPA: I pull with them when they come Zion , not going let me use non stock  carburetor.  At least I don’t think so ,haven’t looked at there’re rules this season.

    1000003941.thumb.jpg.5d630305367ae9f530c28dd87725a17d.jpgCharlie Hoober  handed these out before speaking about life as an IH dealer. I asked my salesman to order me four of the new 450's . The planter is for Kurt but my boy can't understand how I didn't bid on it. I explained that once he said he was interested I didn't want to bid against him 









    Nice c221 corn planter! I’ll say , that’s right 

  4. Put a new battery in the 560 diesel. After I replaced the copper line seals on the fuel injector lines. I climb up into the control room. Push the starte button. Nothing ! Thunder! 
    Down to Autozone again ,get a marine rv battery group 27 . Back to farm m. Installed . Hit the starter button , started crank so fast, it scared me. 
    Thunder Battery only lasted 8 years , thunder !

    Well next, going to hook the 560 to the baler and see what’s wrong with it. Stay tuned

  5. Got them installed . Preparation took most time ,cleaning crud around back side. Didn’t have an air nozzle ,so the brake cleaner can nozzle was effective. I got a small telescope mirror to see the back side. I started side  the hard one on back side. Banjo bolt won’t come out unless you pull the line up to clear the engine casting . Was wearing a every-ready head light to eliminate the back better. I did drop the back bolt down into the chassis cradle . Used a small telescope magnet to find it , Cleaned with brake fluid and shop towels. 
    I thighen the bolt tight with 9/16 craftsman box wrench till it felt there was move give and stopped. 

    so this what  you need to do this job,  best I can say after doing it yesterday ,don’t think I forgot much .

    12+new seal's #367984R1 WASHER

    2 can of cheap brake cleaner (air nozzles)

    shop towels 

    9/16 combination box open end wrench 

    everyready head light flash light , sunlight , shop light , got to be able to see what your doing. 

    telescopic small magnet 

    Telescopic small mirror 

    drip pan to catch the crud . 

    have someone close by for you ask  to do something for you . 

    Don’t do this job when your tried or in a hurry ,cause  don’t have time for the re-dos .

    Hardest thing is backside banjo bolt maneuver and sliding inner over bolt . Finding the thread to pump 





  6. I got leaks around these washers ,At least that’s what I think is the issue. Bought new copper washers  from Messicks to replace . Here’s the links to washers 84&86. https://www.messicks.com/cas/143098
    So the hex head is 9/16 on the banjo bolts. 
    I did this once before long time ago. Kind wondering how to get the dirt out of the back sides . Toothbrush and brake cleaner.? Forgot how tight  to thighen ,remembered be careful not to over thighen and break bolt  ? And I got extra washer cause the inside washers on back side fall out ,ugh !

    ugh ! 

  7. Interesting about plums . I heard this is going to be a good year for flowering plants. So your plums are  proving it .

  8. thing about weeds they will out grow all the other seeded plants by 10 to 20 percent . This has been going for a long time. 
    you got cope, figure out-way to out do that genetic superiority. the way I understand it.
