What did you do with your Red tractor today?

Not much of a Red tractor day here today. Started the 10 up and backed it out of the shed so I could get the WD and the 45 out. Spent most of the day with the little Orange guys. Loved every minute of it! Used all three of these today.

Never been an Orange fan, but I firmly believe that the WD and the WD 45 were the best tractors Allis ever made. I can point to a couple that are still earning their keep on farms around here.

Man that thing looks mean! Looks like it would cover a lot of ground in a day too. What's the story on the missing dual?

I worked about 60 acres this afternoon.

I'm in the process of changing it over from 18.4x38 duals to 24.5x32 singles. It's a major job and I have other things to do. Basically it happens when I have a flat or something.

The 24.5x32s are old combine tires and wheels.

Spreading fertilizer with one of our 7120s. Brother is Spreading with the 105U and Dad is Spreading manure with the other 7120 and 3230.

I knew you wanted 30.5-32 but thought it looked too narrow but this answers my question about size also. Our 4366 is by the shop for brake repairs and it's a back burner project but it's getting used 30.5 when I get to it . I have 3 hubs off and the 4th is giving me issues.... I might have to get new wedges for that one or a 1" drive 7/8" 12 point socket if available.

I still want the 30.5x32 but I have the 24.5x32 and my budget is tight.

You better find some used wedges. New ones are pricey.

I spent alot of time working on my brakes but I quit and went to work because the fields got ready. Still need one more o ring for the caliper...

Thx-Ace

I got a proto 7/8 12pt 1 in drive impact socket. It's too big to get on the bolt. 

I currently use a 1/2 inch drive proto 7/8 12pt deep impact socket with my dewalt high torque impact. It usually works unless they are sized up. If so,  I then apply the hot wrench. They either come loose or pull the threads. I apply lots of oil, antiseze, whatever and work it back and forth until the threads are cleaned up and it moves freely.

I would like to get a 7/8 12pt 3/4 deep impact socket and a higher torque battery impact to run it. Deep sockets help because I can often avoid using an extension. I have much better luck without an extension.

 

Whatcha doing to your brakes @bitty?

Good luck!

I'm hoping to convert to 966/1066 style in the rear ends . Want to make the disk into a park gear for a park like a 1086 paw to engage in....

Mine moved back and forth some but won't now..... I might have to sacrifice a set of wedges on this one. Going to try heat first. Probably won't be doing anything until after the crops are planted

I forgot to mention.. I ran the buzz saw with the trusty old F-12 for a couple of hours on saturday. It is the perfect tractor to use on the saw because the belt pulley runs backwards, which allows me to cross the belt, and it only uses 1/2 gallon an hour worth of gas!

Thankyou! It is all original on the outside… I was very careful when I built the engine not to disturb the originality. In the right light, you can still see the Farmall decal on the sides of the fuel tank. Anyone can have a repainted tractor… not everyone has an original.
