    Anyone Plowing/ Manure spreading for spring

    My field is on a slope, so by the time the bottom is dry enough, the top is too dry. It works OK, except where there is dense growth. I'm trying to avoid having to deep plow it again.

    Anyone Plowing/ Manure spreading for spring

    Yeah, I'll need some front weights if I go much heavier. Steering is iffy already. Plenty of power and traction.

    Anyone Plowing/ Manure spreading for spring

    I think I need more weight on my big disc set. It's got 20 discs, about 6' wide, and I pull it behind a Ford 3000. Without weight, it didn't really do anything. I put 300 lbs. on it, and that helped. I don't have a way to put more weight on right now- I need to make a tray or something to secure...

    Gardens 2020

    Our summer garden is winding down, but the winter garden is booming. Collards, broccoli, spinach, and kohlrabi. The collards will produce all winter long here in SC. We'll have fresh greens until April. I'm also going to put in some garlic just to see what happens. We're having a rather cool...

    Parting out Model 70

    I have a creeper, but I'm using it. They're getting pretty rare.

    Anyone Plowing/ Manure spreading for spring

    I just worked my project field for the fall. It started out as 1/2 acre of pine stumps and brushy sweet gum trees. I had it grubbed off, and I've been trying to restore the soil for a couple years now. I just mowed it, disked it, limed it, and seeded winter rye. The soil is getting better with...

    Ross steering rebuild

    When I was test-driving my Model 70 Hi-Crop project, it was a chore to keep it going straight. There was a lot of slop in the steering box (I put new rod ends on the drag link and tie rod). When I took it apart, I found out that the follower stud wasn't even tight! The nut had backed off. There...

    Ross steering rebuild

    The stud I bought looks more like the long one. I didn't compare it to the old one. As I said, it works fine, although it's backed out nearly all the way. There's a guy that sells them on ebay for $14 with a new set of ball bearings.

    Ross steering rebuild

    I bought a new one, along with new ball bearings. Too cheap to be worth messing around with the old one. I did rework an old one as a spare.

    Ross steering rebuild

    It's fine; I just thought it odd that it would be tighter in the middle. There is no orientation to the stud/follower- it's round. I've seen plenty of them with flats worn on them, but they start out round.

    Ross steering rebuild

    I just finished buttoning up the Ross steering for my Model 70. New bearings, new stud, thrust ball bearing on the pivot, and fresh grease. A couple things- I have the stud backed off almost all the way- I guess when they're new, that's to be expected? The worm looked like new when I got it...

    The 'other woman'

    You can find fuel pumps, but they're made overseas, even if you go to a Ford/NH dealer. They don't sell a diaphragm kit, either. It will be easier to go electric anyway, as I don't have to take anything apart.

    The 'other woman'

    Yeah, my old 3000 is pretty tired, but it keeps pluggin' along. Some winter I'll probably go through it, as I'm sure it needs rings at a minimum. I spent a king's ransom on new tires and rims, so it's a keeper, that's for sure. I need to rig up an electric fuel pump for it. The mechanical one...

    Parting out Model 70

    I've decided not to build a second Model 70, so I'm going to part out most of what I have. It's completely torn apart, and in need of cleaning/painting/restoration. The ring and pinion in the differential are pitted, so are probably not usable. The rest of the transmission gears are in excellent...

    Model 70 custom

    Now that I got most of the transaxle cleaned up, I found pretty significant pitting on the ring gear, and a bit on the pinion. I have another transaxle, and it's pristine inside, so I'll use that. I've had a heart-to-heart with myself, and decided that I'm going to just build one Model 70. It...

    Restored vintage cub cadet 100

    Years ago, my uncle used to restore Model A Fords. Points were actually deducted for 'over-restored' cars, meaning the fit and finish was better than factory. I've seen plenty of tractors at shows that look a lot nicer than factory finish. I saw one Farmall where they had smoothed and filled all...

    That would be great!

    Dad’s 100

    Somewhere years ago I saw a picture of CC's being painted on an assembly line. Nearly the entire tractor was hung up and painted. That's why nearly everything is painted yellow. I wonder if they pre-painted components before assembly, though, as I've never seen any bare metal taking one apart...

    Model 70 custom

    Well, I started digging, even though I know better. I drained the trans before taking everything apart. Fluid looked OK, but smelled pretty funky. Then- I took the rear plate off. There was about 2" of semi-solid gunk in the bottom of it, about the consistency of grease. As I started taking it...

    Dad’s 100

    Beautiful work! I hope mine comes out half as good. What are you guys doing to protect the edge of the hood when you open it? Every hood I've seen gets damaged where it rests against the grille housing in the open position. Most of them contact the steering wheel when opening, too. I'd hate to...
