    New (to me) 4100

    Ultimately yes, I do plan to do the back half when things aren’t so busy. Years ago I also did all of this to a 4400 for my parents. It’s plastic was badly oxidized and some of it was broken. I waxed the good panels and replaced the broken ones, looked like a new tractor when it was done. Might...

    Burned Up Trailer Wiring

    On my PJ dump trailer it has fuses on both the positive and negative sides of the charging circuit for the trailer battery. If you have smoke its most definitely a short circuit somewhere, a bad ground prevents flow of electricity so that would be highly unlikely. Id trace out your harness from...

    I think the newer variant, it was whatever the had in the shelf at the dealership

    Thanks! I did some fine sanding, primer, paint, and clear coat.

    Most likely it’s a safety switch that is preventing the tractor from starting. Now assuming when you turn the key to the on position you should have power to your gauges, the fuel gauge should read tank level. If that’s the case I typically run through each safety device on the tractor (Neutral...

    Got my hot water pressure washer back from the shop today and couldn’t resist cleaning up the 4100 a bit. Leaning towards waxing the side panels to get rid of the oxidation. [emoji848]

    New (to me) 4100

    Made a little more progress today on the 4100. Somehow I ended up with an I match when I picked up the parts I ordered last week. [emoji28] Not knowing what I had/ didn’t have I ordered the loader joystick so I could start figuring out what else was missing. I’m missing a number of small...

    New (to me) 4100

    Made more progress on the hood today: The John Deere paint turned out pretty good but I’m debating shooting it with clear coat to give it more shine. Either that or waxing it in a few days. Open to ideas there, leaning more towards clear coat though. Also got a picture of what I’m up...

    New (to me) 4100

    Any advice on finding the trim piece for around the headlight switch? This 4100 just had duct tape over the hole that the switch goes in so I ordered a new switch and installed it yesterday but am missing the trim ring that holds it in place to the instrument panel. Upon my searches through...

    New (to me) 4100

    Got a little time today to start cleaning up the hood. The white color was actually primer, apparently some of the paint had came off in the past so their fix was shooting the hood with some grey primer to prevent rust. This go around it’ll get sanded, primed, and painted. Although far from...

    New (to me) 4100

    Making the tractor useful with a new Fronteir mower [emoji1362] Reversed the rear tires and when right to work cutting brush. Forgot how dusty mowing can be on an open station machine but it was certainly enjoyable nonetheless.

    Anyone have a recommendation for a GPS tracker for their equipment?

    I bought 4 trackers from SVR Tracking a few months ago. These were recommended by a friend who owns a rental yard so I figured it was worth a try. If I remember right each unit was around $180 each up front but that included coverage for 3 or so years and was $40 a year after that timeframe. I...

    Unfortunately no progress pictures but I got the Z225 out to cut the grass.

    New (to me) 4100

    Picked up a high hour (5540 hrs) John Deere 4100 today so I can have a mowing tractor again. Surprisingly for the hours it’s mechanically sound, no blow by, smoke, or stuttering in the transmission/hydraulics. I’m not sure what it’s previous life entailed but I think it’ll have an easy...

    Manual tilt vs Electric tilt trailers?

    I’ve not seen an electric tilt fail however you could probably adjust the relief valve to get the deck to tilt if the system was to fail. Really it all depends on what you intended to use it for. If just hauling a tractor or equipment I’d just go with gravity tilt. If hauling cars or pickup...

    Excavator v. Skid Steer for Hobby Farmer?

    Having both, I use my skidsteer around my property considerably more than the excavator. The skidsteer is more versatile, you can move things faster over a distance. Some rental yards will rent out just attachments, you could always rent a stump grinder for the skidsteer to deal with the stumps...

    T66 with 74" HD Bucket

    I’ve put about 350 hrs on my T62, awesome machine. Yes, you can see the cutting edge well. If you get wide tracks get the 5 link suspension, without the suspension you have maybe 1/2” gap between the track and the body of the machine. With 5 link that gap is much better. I got zigzag tracks...

    YM187D Project tractor

    Small update: Found a set of turf tires off of another 187D yesterday and got them mounted up. Now the drivetrain won’t work against itself in 4wd, the rear tires that were on it were from a 165D.

    YM187D Project tractor

    Small update. Havent gotten too far on the 187D, ended up picking up a bunch of forklifts to fix up which has pretty much consumed my shop space. Will be back on the Yanmar once I get these forklifts fixed up.

    YM187D Project tractor

    It does have a lot more in common to the 226 I had vs the 186. My buddy was offered all of Raffi’s parts tractors but before he could say yes everything was sent off to auction.

    YM187D Project tractor

    No worries! It’s better than some but certainly far from perfect. I may try to fix some of its imperfections and see how the paint responds to some wax.

    YM187D Project tractor

    For as simple as it is it sure is handy for engines that don’t have a functioning electrical system handy. I built it for a Duetz F2L410 2 cylinder air cooled engine that I had out of an M600D Bobcat that I got running last year. I wanted everything in a box basically so I spent an afternoon...

    YM187D Project tractor

    Another update! Tonight I started taking some things off the parts tractor. Before I go too far I wanted to try and get it running so I robbed the starter, fuel filter housing, and injector lines off of my runner and put them on the parts tractor. Hooked up my remote starter box and bled fresh...

    YM187D Project tractor

    I’d be more than happy to sell the hood. The main draw back is the holes behind the 187 emblem for who knows what. This tractor had a loader at one time which explains its rougher looks.

    YM187D Project tractor

    Funny you mention that. Yesterday I took a trip 3 hours south for a parts tractor. When I got there I noticed a bar none sticker on it which means this was one of Raffi’s parts tractors that was auctioned off earlier this year. The parts tractor is missing quite a bit but I think I can make one...

    YM187D Project tractor

    It was bound to happen… listed my 226D for a stupid price thinking no one will ever buy it yet I still sold it. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Timing wise it worked out though since I was moving into my new shop and needed to free up some space while I got settled in. Now that everything is put away it was time for...

    Hyster S40 / E50 part interchangeability

    Finally dove into the mast swap! As expected, it’s a direct swap, very simple and straight forward as long as you have a second forklift handy to move the mast and set it in place.

    Fortunately I have a Hyster dealer close by for parts support. [emoji1303]

    Hyster S40 / E50 part interchangeability

    About 2 months ago I picked up a Hyster S40XM forklift for a fair price. It’s everything I need in a shop forklift although I wouldn’t mind if it lifted higher than 7ft. A few weeks ago I snagged 2 more forklifts, 2 identical E50XM’s. One is missing the battery and the other needs the...

    New to me 226D

    Got the 226D out to mow today. Overall very happy with how the R4’s don’t tear up the grass like the R1’s did. Still debating getting rear wheel spacers since I can’t use the turn buckles to adjust the lower lift arms.

    New to me 226D

    More progress: Fixed the leaks on the front axle And finally got the front tires on [emoji7] Note: Front wheels only fit in the wide setting with little room to spare. For me it’s perfect, the tractors setup for stability and flotation for running a finish mower. If you haven’t...

    New to me 226D

    Small update: Rear tires mounted and back on the tractor! Front tires coming in tomorrow although I’m planning to reseal the front end before the new front tires go on. Front end parts should be here tomorrow tho! 🤞🏼

    Good question! I just ordered the white paint from Hoye so it should be pretty close.

    New to me 226D

    Small update: Got the 790 wheels sandblasted and started repainting in Yanmar white.

    New to me 226D

    Yea, I’ve read that. Fortunately a local salvage yard shows the gears in inventory, I’m just waiting for a day off to go buy them since I’m sure mine are in bad shape. Today I tried to get it started and found the starter is toast, literally wouldn’t even spin the engine over with no glow plugs...

    These are Deere ones that I’ve just painted black. I’m pretty convinced I paint them every time I use the tractor 🤷🏻‍♂️

    New to me 226D

    Made a trip out to a friends house and found some Yanmar side panels. [emoji7] unfortunately they weren’t exactly right but with slight modifications they fit right on. [emoji1362] And I got another project tractor…. Allis Chalmers 5020 (Hinomoto E23 if I’m not mistaken) [emoji28]
  41. Johndeere3720

    New to me 226D

    They are from Hoye yes
  42. Johndeere3720

    New to me 226D

    It is yes. They’re not quite as long as the originals but they do look a little nicer without all the fading.
  43. Johndeere3720

    New to me 226D

    Just some cosmetic changes to clean up the 226D. Sizing up the new front wheel Note: Front wheels only fit in the wide position
  44. Johndeere3720

    New to me 226D

    More progress, got the tires dismounted today and picked up the 4th wheel. Next step is getting the wheels sand blasted so I can get a fresh coat of Yanmar off white on them. John Deere part # for the front wheels:
  45. Johndeere3720

    New to me 226D

    Ordered another front wheel today through Deere and got the rears back off the tractor so I can get the tires dismounted and wheels sand blasted. Really looking forward to getting this tractor dialed in. [emoji1362]
  46. Johndeere3720

    New to me 226D

    Finally found most of a set (missing 1 front) of wheels/tires from a 790 John Deere today. [emoji28] The rears fit like a glove, front measures to be the same as well. My sway links are a tight fit however I ultimately plan to get a quick hitch and probably spacers in the rear which should...

    135D project tractor

    I’m hoping so, the free play in the pedal is about double what it should be, I’ll see if a simple adjustment is all it is. 🤞🏼
  48. Johndeere3720

    New to me 226D

    Well that’s unfortunate.. I’ll have to do some reading in the manual to better understand how it’s put together. I got to rebuilt automatic transmissions in college so the whole hydraulic clutch pack is familiar to me.
  49. Johndeere3720

    New to me 226D

    So I did this test today and with the valve locked and 3 point up it did not drift. As far as the front end goes I’ve put together a parts list on Hoye, it’s about $200 to completely reseal the front end.
  50. Johndeere3720

    New to me 226D

    Brought the 226D out to my property yesterday to do some mowing and test things out. What I found is in high range the power shift is super delayed, it takes up to 10 seconds to build pressure and start moving and up to 5 seconds between gears. On an incline it actually will slow to a...
