  5. 857 lift cable size

    well i thought i would go the cheap route maybe not
  6. my 857 has never had a rear lift cable i have some cable from my old garage door and was going to local hardware and buy some small clevis and make my own cable. what size cable diameter was on these 857 originally. my cable guide is there on top trans thought i just thread a cable thru it and put some clevises on both ends.
  7. K181 hone cylinder or leave it?

    i always run hone thru cylinder to put crosshatch back in if it smooth the rings won't seat and will burn oil. least that is what i was told. last couple engines i done k181 and k301 i sent em to machine shop 40 bucks they checked em out bored them if needed and honed all i done was put them back together. always install new rings if you pull the piston out cylinder better insurance now then latter when it has blowby and burns oil

  14. my new toys

    my father in law past away 2 yrs ago was over there today and one of his old buddies stop by and we were trying to start the JD B but seems the mag no good and my mother in law told me that theses tractors are now mine .at the moment i have no where to store them so they will stay there for now the one is a 1937 JD B unstyled and the other is a 1938 JD L unstyled they both been sitting for about 20 yrs. the L will start and run but the B wont. my father in laws buddy wants me to get the B running for this fall a local club here has a plow day this fall and wants me to bring the B and plow. was looking on tractor data .com and this B is only rated at 12 horse at the draw bar hell that is what my wheel horse is but the B probably has a lot more torque to it. he says it will pull a 2 14" bottom plow the one picture is his old butt buggy he made to get around at the shows it is a choremaster i had to get it out and make a couple laps around the house he has a straight pipe no muffler and it is a little loud.
