Michelin agri bib is where it's at Nate. 

Not sure any tire is good anymore, I’ve never been impressed with the Michelin ag tires, and Firestones are to soft nowadays, they get stubble damage from grass it seems

Im one of the few on here that hate Firestone with a passion. Some of that has to do with a extremely bad experienced with them a while back.  They lost us as a customer after that.

Really like our Micheline's. So far had them on my 1066 for 7 years and have no complaints. I do agree ain't nothing worth nothing though.

Mowing hay with duals?

had a 8930 that i took the duals off and left the wheels set for 30" rows to mow hay on some real steep hills, was afraid i was going to tip over, that was a one and done thing. put the duals back on and never took them off after that.

I've done alot of damage to hay equipment leaving the duals on doing hay work. My rows are 36" so the duals are pretty wide.

Me too.  I even take the spacers off for the same reason

So what is the procedure for a rebuilt engine.  How do you break it in?

We went by what the IH service manual said, using the dyno   Right or wrong I have no idea….
