Any chance you could share a pic of those gauge wheels you refer to??
Hopefully it attaches

Any reason why? I don’t have experience with liquid, would be to do starter only on wheat. Rest would be broad cast and incorporated before.

only reason for not doing fert with seed was not getting the fert tank at the same time ... tank still sitting at other guys place [new pump], but went with seperately appled fert ...
still set up with stainless steel lines for the fert and atom jet boots on the hoe part, definitely worth the 6k i paid for it, set up with narrow spacing, needs the reinforcement pieces welded in yet ..

regards, warren

Wish you were closer, I'd be looking at that. I'm still trying to get the 8500 into the field for the first time. I'm having problems with the hydraulics. The wings work fine, and the left side of the machine works good, but the right side is giving me problems. The second last cylinder won't extend all the way so it isn't bypassing oil to the last cylinder (they use slots at the top of the bore to bypass to the next cylinder and are plumbed in series instead of parallel like most IHC products... more like a Morris). We took the 2nd last cylinder apart and it seems good inside, and when we put it on a tractor alone it put oil out the top port. It acts like air in between the 2nd and 3rd cylinders, but I've blown about 5 gallons of oil through it and bled it to no avail. The last cylinder on that side is an aftermarket one and I wondered if it was just the wrong type of cylinder. I replumbed it so the last cylinder was bypassed and the remaining cylinders worked better, but the last one still won't extend beyond 8" and it needs to hit about 8.5" to bypass properly. Any ideas for those experienced with these drills?

Apparently the seal kits are no longer available... I'm guessing the previous owner just slapped that aftermarket cylinder on to sell it. Wish I knew if it ever worked, or if I have something else going on. They tell me the correct way to bleed them is with the cylinder rods disconnected and fully extended. Did you have any problems bleeding after you put the kit in?

seal kits may be NLA at dealer, but local [Maki] hydraulic shop had them on the shelf in stock , weird cylinders, only ones like that ??
as far as bleeding, no problems to remember, didn't take them apart or run with couplings off, was two years ago ?

I actually ended up getting a 787/730 John Deere. Partially because parts were hard to find of the 8500/8600 cih. The other reason was the seeders for sale were either beat or the asking price hi and wasn’t much lower than what I got. Ripped the cultervator parts and harrow, it’s pretty much a 44’ 455 air drill with 787 cart
