  1. In numbers at the farm that is. If we gauge off total HP, Red is ahead. I'll need five more to make the count even with the Orange. Have I got that much shed space??? Here's the story; Last week I spotted this thing sitting at the local AGCO dealer, had about 10 minutes before I had to head to work so I stopped and inquired. Just in on trade. The original owner had passed, his family traded it in on a smaller Kabota. Stopped the next day, more time to work with. Took it for a spin. Thought wow, this thing is pretty quiet for having a straight-pipe. Seemed to have a whistle too. Sure enough, M&W turbo hiding under there! Missed that the day before. Everything seemed to work good, I like it. Now just need to find out how bad they are going to bend me over on the price. Well, it wasn't 'cheap', but better than I expected. I've been looking for another bigger horse for some time now. They either go beyond reality on price or need more love than I have time to give them. Or, like now, there just doesn't seem to be much for sale. Was really looking for a 1566, know of a 1456, (will keep an eye on that) but this 8 is going to fit right in. It will lead a very pampered life, going to do some plow-days, tractor rides, maybe a pull or two. Probably pull some wagons to the elevator in the fall. Anyway, without further adieu, some pics.
  2. Currently Restoring a 856, I am looking for some guidance on a few things. I got it stripped down to the engine block and frame for the most part. - is it necessary to take off every part ? when it comes to primer paint can someone educated me on that, please and thank you. is a spray can can ok, how many coats , clean and prime as I go, paint/primer every part separate ? any other tips as first timer restoring a tractor would be greatly appreciated thanks.
  3. Pto on the 856 wouldn't stop when I bought it. Previous owner said it held fine, just wouldn't stop turning. I pulled it apart over Christmas and found most of the fraction disc wore to nothing, blue steel discs, and brake pads wore to the metal. The back of the drum was slightly grooved from the brake pads. I rebuilt it to the "heavy duty" specs per the RedRunRite sight. New friction and steel discs, didn't touch the orings on the drum, they looked good. Now I haven't set the pressure yet, but when you shut it off it wants to barely turn and I can turn it by hand when the tractor is off. What did I screw up????
  4. I was taking with @Axial Flow and he sent me some pictures and asked me add them. He was hoping to see what people know about the serial number differences shown in the pics. Why are some the “old style” and others the “new style”. The first pic is a later serial number 856 hi-crop followed by it’s tag. The second set is an 856 LP followed by its tag. He will probably be along to comment further. Was there a timeframe as to the swap in serial number styles? Did the letters other than the serial number have meaning like the earlier letter series tractors?
  5. Took a walk this evening when I arrived home from work. Decided to show off some of our machines at work. Dad in the 856 with 3 point sprayer, applying post emergence in corn.
  6. I bought this running and operational 856 Diesel in December from a guy in Monee, IL who told me he got it from somewhere in Indiana. He bought it with a 2250 loader on it and stripped the loader off to run a large round baler. The hour meter shows 6700 and change on it, but is currently not working so hours are unknown. The guy I bought it from had the PTO rebuilt and told me the engine had been overhauled before he bought it. That's all I know about its history. I have taken the Year-A-Round cab off, removed the 3 pt, and am having the pump opened up along with bigger injector tips for pulling it this summer. It needs to be rewired and the lights added back as the cab was wired in place of the factory wiring and some hydraulic leaks fixed. Barring any major failures this summer it'll get put on a plow in the fall and then get some forced induction over the winter. Model: 856 Farmall Diesel Year: 1968 Serial #: 14435 Options: T/A, Flat Top Fenders, Wide Front, 3 PT, Dual Hydraulics, Dual PTO, Tilt Wheel, Hydraulic Seat
