I always love a good solid table. Mine is a old heavy pallet rack with a 4x8 piece of 3/4 plate steel on top table weighs about 1800 pounds but is pretty much unbreakable. 6000 lb capacity.

Few other projects worth noting from 2020.
Took the remote valves off the dead 1066 had them rebuilt and put them on the 856 so we can use it on the discbine. Also replaced the spindles, steering arms,wheel bearings and the pivot pin on the front axle.

Even put a new tach in it as well. Old one quit with 9200 something hours Sept 2010 installed the new one June 20th and has 183 hours on it. Probably will easily have 200+ by June 20th. Do the math over those ten years it definitely gets it's use

Currently have the motor out of skid steer. Popped 2 head gaskets so closer inspection found a depression in the block on the edge of the liner. So complete re-sleeve and rebuild it is.

Have a loader tractor of mine that needs a clutch. Then a clutch replacement, and an engine rebuild for a customer.

We just got the Oliver 1800A out of the shop last week. Bought it on BigIron out of Minnesota for a Christmas gift to my father. It arrived and that's when I found out the steering cylinder was shot and needed a rebuild, and the radiator was JB Weld'ed badly. It still needs some little odds and ends done, but it's at least together.


The Deere 530 we bought last fall is in the shop, due to me being a moron who broke it. Hopefully that's not in too long. Once that's done, we'll bring the old New Holland 276 in for some odds and ends if the weather stays nice. For it's age, that baler has been a heck of a nice, trouble-free machine

What's cooking? I might be right over. :D  :lol:   Now you got me a thinkin', what I could add to my hay shed.  Na, I like my better half's cooking, if you could see my size you'd agree.  :rolleyes:   I was a rack of bones, when we got hitched, now she's got me looking like a 4H steer.  :cool:

Worked some more on getting the generator done, finished the Delco 15.50 to SAE #10 adapter that Hayes was talking $1400-1900 for. 

A couple of cutouts from the welding shop in town took care of it. Tired old $300 lathe ended up with only .0015 runout when I was done.

I have plenty of swing but chuck is too small, so chucked a drive flange out of a tractor and bolted the smaller 3/8” cutout to that, drilled a 11/16” hole in the center then used a baby boring bar to take it out to exactly .750 which is a tight fit for the generator adapter that was sent with it. Placed the drive discs over the cutout then inserted the adapter and marked then transferred the holes from the drive disc to the plate. Drilled em out to 5/16” and used bolts to fasten spacers in place, welded them then drilled out to 3/8”. had to do that as any 3/8” ID spacers I had were over size. Used the completed plate to transfer the holes to the 16” OD plate. Drilled em then tapped to 3/8-16. Before bolting the large disc to the smaller, I faced the spacers to take care of any runout there. Cut the ID out reasonably close with the circle cutter on the plasma cutter. 

Turned the OD down to 15.505 then a slight relief cut so the discs centered in the bore rather than by the bolts. Everything has just a snug enough fir it can be pressed together using ones thumbs but don’t fall out on their own when carrying the assembly.

I've got my 560 in the garage at the moment. Put a new valve cover on and doesn't seat quite right and I have an issue with the throttle not idling up when it's below freezing. Must have water in the air intake somewhere because when I move the hose to the carb it works alright. That and the right side brake loves to stick and jerk me sideways while driving. Need to get that figured out.

There are ramps and rollers on the brake assembly, the ramps get little ledges worn into them, causing the rollers to stick. Replace the roller balls, sand the ramps smooth and replace the springs. And replace the brake pads.

Thanks stack. Never thought of the ramps being a problem. I also heard that you may need to cut the thickness down somewhere too? There stupid simple in how they work but you need to get everything right.
