Ready to Plant

Postby Brandon Webb » Sun Apr 28, 2013 2:42 pm

Was having trouble with my planter missing. The chain would skip on the planter drive I had the single chain setup like the early manuals show like this

Thankfully I had some spare parts and put on the two chain setup which works excellent zero slipping on the gear I guess that's why IH did this

Ready now

What manual are you looking at that says to hook it up that way when driving the planter and fertilizer bases at the same time?

Last year I didn't use a fertilize hopper when I planted I just had the short chain to the planter drive. I saw this picture in the manual and assumed since it lined up it'd work, which after hooking it up I found it didn't.

Yeah, as you found out, that's not the way to connect the chain while planting and applying fertilizer at the same time. Later, when the plants come up and you are just side dressing and you don't have the seed hopper base installed, you can just run the single chain like the manual shows.
Like the set up! Is that an original chain guide and row marker?

Yeah I got real lucky and found this complete planter setup with a cub I bought about 10 years ago. The row markers were hanging in the barn. They work pretty neat but really aren't necessary but I thought I'd play with them. They even had the original chain and ball stops along with the guide. The original chain broke the first time I used it so I replaced it.
Here is the same planter on my old cub it shows the row markers a little better

The Cub is very nice, but what's the story with the wide front H on steel?? That is a cool tractor! Original? Still have it?
