Rawleigh,

Yes they have it. Found a little cheaper on Ebay. But may just bite the bullet and order one for 7/8 buttons from NAPA, along with a good grease gun and flex hose too.

Regards,

Folks,

Is there any big advantage to storing one of these with the levers tied back, to keep the steering clutches open?

I think there is an advantage Chris, especially if it sits out in the wet weather.  I only use mine about 4 hrs a year, it's inside and the levers are tied back.  Not a bad idea on a tractor with a foot clutch that sits out to block the pedal down either.  One of my Farmall C's sits out and last spring when I tried to use it the clutch was stuck. I was able to free it but now the pedal is blocked down when parked.  Just an opinion, but has been working for me.  I have done several steering clutch jobs on these old girls over the years and I'll do anything I can to keep from doing another.

Folks,

 Just a brief update. The TD6 kicked my butt in August putting the diagonal brace back on. I strained my lower back trying to lift that heavy brace back into place. I should have known better too. Anyway after many days of sciatic leg pain, sleepless nights, doctors visits, steroid shots, nerve shock tests, pain meds, and therapy, I have a tentative appointment for back surgery the day after Thanksgiving, near Pittsburgh. Hoping to be able to get back to tractor projects in a few months. The TD6 sets tarpped for winter, which looks like we will get a taste of it this weekend. Several inches of snow possible for Sunday.

Hope things are good in RED land! Be safe out there!

Regards,

 Chris

I had a herniated disc there also, from fooling with my 9B. Mine became a floater, a piece of the inner material broke off after it was squished out of the disc and was floating around the spine. Every once in a while it would take me to the ground. Best thing I ever did for myself was get to a good doctor and get that thing taken care of. It's interesting to find out what all you use your back for, but it's a blessing to be pain and fear free. People didn't understand when I would tell them my back felt great, but my leg was killing me.

Good luck to you. You won't regret getting it done.

Dave, PA shovel, Folks

I havent felt like doing much for the past week.

Reading Dave's note was right on the mark. I could bend over and touch my toes and my back didnt hurt but boy the pain down the leg was fierce!

Well I believe the surgery was successful. Minor complications on getting out of the hospital set me back a week. I have minimal pain in my legs, and have been able to set and lay down again! We are slowly getting better each day. Yesterday I hunted deer from the back deck for a couple hours. Have lots of stuff to do but still coming off meds which really mess me up bad.

The TD6 and its heavy pieces will get a little more respect in the future too.

 Hope things are good in RED land!

Regards,

 Chris
