We had been busy up till last week with farm stuff and getting Ruthless ready to go to the Midwest Winter Nationals.  With that over I have my next project in the shop.  1973 966 factory nf.  Pretty straight but it has a lot of hours on it.  Getting it cleaned up and did some repairs on the wiring yesterday.  Got some tax paperwork and corn to haul but I will keep working on it as much as I can this week.  This is my happy place!

Cleaning up a 1066 for paint. It has a year on the out of frame and injection system by Gunther Heritage and about 700 hours on the Ta . This will finish the circle on this one . Total 7290 hours and I think it's 18??? Serial number

Local mechanic is doing a bunch of  things to our 1456, that have needed attention for years.  I need to take the carburetor off our 3010 and clean it.  I just changed the air filters and the cab filter on our 1086.

Wire probably would have rolled out and stapled nicer if it was not 28°.  Then I wanted an  easy indoor job, so I talked to my father into moving this old hay rake out of the barn and into the shop. it’s about 45 years old and some of the  bearings on the end of the bars had some play in them. Non-greaseable, as old as I am, and (most) of them still had decent grease inside.  We rarely use the bar rakes anymore , but they need to be ready either way.  468626F4-9034-40F3-AC7E-3A548D255A51.thumb.jpeg.3723f593855af542a7777400f17af27b.jpegB5BE3888-CCBC-49F2-8F51-D5AF446FE242.thumb.jpeg.8a9f612800cb248397d6749b63a37df6.jpeg58E7A38D-2341-4E61-A4EA-B68828622A53.thumb.jpeg.433cc351ebe8fcc0db5bc28ac88f3e24.jpeg
Added pic got out of order. Found a quart of NH yellow paint in my cabinet that’s been in there since the early ‘90s.  Took 20 minutes of stirring with an Allen key stuck in a drill to bring it back to “fluid” state, but it did 100%.  Old school paint.

Trying to get some work done on my personal Farmall C... carb rebuild, rework the air intake, governor repair and maybe attempt to paint the tinwork when it warms up a bit more. Need to paint my '00 F250 and my wife's '01 Excursion, but I've never really done any body work and the Farmall is a much cheaper guinea pig to find out if I'm absolutely terrible at it. Neighbor dropped off his Long 310 for have the injection pump resealed. Interesting little 2 cylinder tractor with a Mefin pump.

I could be wrong but some of those old style bar rake bearings have a split inner race that can be snugged up as needed to eliminate excess play.  If they are that type, you are probably better off doing that than installing new bearings from A&I or some such lower dollar supplier.

Dealer had 5 in stock, he ordered me 5 more.  I don’t believe there is any way to tighten them…..but I didn’t look to close.  Inner race appears  to be one with the stub shaft, per the parts diagram anyway. The larger models did use a tapered roller bearing that I’d think could be tightened.

Swapping the motor out on my stump grinder. Wisconsin VH4D with one bad and 3 weak cylinders, being replaced with a newly rebuilt (supposedly) one off of a NH baler. The baler motor had reversed controls, and a 6v starter and generator. The stump grinder motor is 12v with the stator under the flywheel. The baler motor gear cover did not have a provision for the stator and the flywheel is different which is why they are torn down that much.  If you remember from before, I had bought a pump with a low hour engine, and was going to get an adapter made for the threaded, smaller, crankshaft stub trying to avoid doing this. But, that didn't materialize, so here I am.

Nice 300,needs a set of Rear wheel weights to make it look complete but real nice with all the chrome lettering on it .I would love to have one like that just to mount a syclebar on it to trim up.
