    Hey Pat, be careful guy. Don't let it over take you. By that I mean, don't try to do anything, that you aren't use to doing. Be careful with it. Tractors are not forgiving. They will hurt you and can kill you.

    Just be careful.

    KUBOTA baby!






    Just kidding. Thought maybe I'd hear a couple of heads explode.





    Seriously though, you'll hardly ever see a man more proud than with his new purchase of a good peice of American made iron.

    Actually, Kubota makes one hell of a tractor. At least they used to. Our was about 15 years old. Got rid of it a couple of years ago. Never had one problem.

    Smile And Now........................... .........

    Every farm boy has one of those moments that really define what make this lifestyle worth it. Mine is Spring Plowing time, with an early 50's John Deere model 70 and a 3 bottom moldboard plow. Plowing until it got too dark to see well was a given around here, with most of us being "Farmers" who had a fulltime job elsewhere, and Farming was a way of keeping the place intact, without huge taxes. Anyway, I'd get to the end of the row, swing out and line up for the return pull, and all at the same time, drop the right tire into the furrow, drop the plow, and pull the throttle lever back to wide open. This would create a 4 foot tall bright Blue Flame out of the Stack, and the well known sound of "Poppin Johnny" going to work. Most of the time, I'd be grinning at my son as the Green Machine walked right on past his Farmall "M" which was pulling an identical plow. What I'd give to have that Tractor back..........

    StayBack, my good man, I knew you were a fine individual! My dad and uncle have a roughly '49 model Cub! I'll have to get a picture on here.

    They also have a '63 Allis Chalmers D17, a '68ish Allis 180, a '78 John Deere (can't remember model #), and a '72ish International 454. I love the 180. It is one bad SOB.

    And Harv, I know what you are talking about. There was nothing like finishing that last row of tobacco after dark, getting the setter out on our little one-lane road, and blowing that little diesel wide open to clear out any goo that accumulated during several hours of idling.

    One of my best memories of my late grandfather was from his last days, when the pain medicine for his cancer was loosening his lips. A doctor or nurse was talking about what great fun golf was, and Paw-paw said, "That's not fun. Fun is dropping that plow into the furrow and opening that throttle and shooting black smoke all the way to the top of the sky!"

    Way to go Harve. Maybe when he is being a pest again, you can send him for a left handed hammer or azimuth grease!

    I've got a good one, asked my nephew to change the oil in a Lawn-Boy pushmower, he came back in 30 minutes.......like, where is the drain plug.

    Grew up on nothing but IH, Super C, M, 300 then a 706, 1066 (best dang tractor ever made!), 2 1586's and a 1486.

    My brothers and I still have the 300 Farmall, looking forward to a full restoration some day. (It does still run, BTW)

    Own a MF 1030 with loader, handy as shirt pocket!

    I think the 806 is the best, got one with 14,000 hrs on the clock and that quit 7 years ago. The only problem is that I was having muffler trouble. So I replaced the old shaft drive muffler with a new hydraulic driven one. IH hydro just not strong enough, so it is louder than a bull that caught his balls on barbed wire.

    Perhaps your muffler bearings are bad?

    That is why I went with the hydraulic muffler. The orbit motor drives the muffler directly, no shafts or bearings. There is a ceramic seal on the orbit motor to handle the heat.
