  1. Rescue these and paint them RIGHT!!!...(pleeze)

    John Deere boys tell me " nothing runs like a deere " , I tell them nothing smells like a "John "
  2. 706 hydraulic pressure

    Also something to think about is your loader cylinders . Does both the bucket and the lift arm circuts seem low on pressure ? If 1 of cylinders on a circut os leaking you wont have pressure on that particular function as both cylinders are plumbed togather . Does the 3 point lift have good pressure when lifting ?
  3. Fiery Accident in the Area

    ^^True Dat^^ That is as bad as they get . No way in heck can i go to bed after calls like that , need to unwind and decompress and be thankful for the things that mean the most to me . Sometimes i find myself reflecting back on some of the bad calls over the years and the good ones also come to mind : Doesnt happen often , but i have delivered 2 healthy babies . I have had patients that were in cardiac arrest and with CPR ,defibrillaion , intubation and medication obtain pulses back and after leaving them at the hospital and not hearing thier outcome to have them show up at the station a month or 2 later to personally thank the crew . That is a pretty awesome feeling . This makes everything we school amd train for all worth it and makes the bad ones a little easier .
  4. Fiery Accident in the Area

    R190 I whole heartily agree ! I too have done all my time in Rural EMS with long transport times to the hospital , an hour on average covering small communities . Seems at least one crew member knows the patient . I remember when I was a new " Para Pup" , fresh out of school thinking I could save every patient , doesn't take long for the reality of the job to sink in . I had an awesome partner who was Veteran in EMS that helped me through some of them first bad calls . He told me these words that remain in my mind yet today " there is only so long we can have a tug of war with God , when he makes he mind up for a patient to come home there is nothing anyone can do to change the outcome " I had alot of respect for him . Now as a Veteran myself I try to give guidance to the new personel with the same respect I was given when I was the new guy . I was on duty the day my Mom had her cardiac arrest , worked on her but she never made it . I was also was on duty when the tones dropped for an MVC rollover unknowing it was my own daughter until arriving on scene . She had a 2 month recovery from a head injury but turned ok with no long term affects .
  5. Fiery Accident in the Area

    I have worked 2 jobs most of my life 30+ years owning a tractor repair buisness and have been a Paramedic for 26 years , I have seen my fair share of people come into this world but without a doubt more leaving this world . Some things I have witnessed will forever be ingrained in my mind ; the smell of burnt flesh , the pleading of a parent in the ditch at a rollover vehicle accident where 2 of her children were involved , a 14 year old and a 9 year old and having to pronounce the 9 year old on scene ( ejection from vehicle and rolled over the him , non life sustaining injuries ) had to move on to the other child whom did have lessor injuries , suicides young and old , breaking the news to a wife / husband of 40 , 50 or 60 years that there is nothing more that can be done for their loved one , the look in their eyes I never forget . These are just a few . Over the years I have had people ask me how EMS personel cope with these things , at least for me , I get so focused on the care of the patient(s) that you do what needs to be done at the time , it is after the call usually when doing the paper work that things set in and am not afraid to admit that some calls do bother me , it is the human factor in all of us . I have an awesome Wife of 33 years that allows me to vent when needed . My faith and my family helps to get me through . The day a person gets so calloused and the human factor leaves is the day I hang up the EMS career , I don't foresee that happening anytime soon though .
  6. Precup puller

    I have an original IH precup puller for the old Farmall and IH engines . There has been discussion occasionally on how to remove stuck precups in these engines , I will be leaving this afternoon for Red Power and I could certainly bring it with me if anyone would be interested in getting measurements for possibly fabricating one . I am not interested in selling mine though , they are kind of hard to come by . I aquired mine from the sale at a dealership I worked for quite some time ago .
  7. Anyone service old IHC injectors ?

    DK Diesel in Watertown SD . Phone number : 605-886-2750 .
  8. Working on a 460 clutch type pto right now that was doing what yours is doing . Pulled it out and found the snap ring that secures the over center clutch assembly on the shaft broken and out of place allowing the whole assembly to move on the shaft when trying to engage the clutch instead of overcentering and engaging the clutch .
  9. Tomatoe Farmer where are you

    Happy New Year to you too . Our conversation was via PM . He never said if he got the tractor running or not .
  10. Tomatoe Farmer where are you

    Happy New Year to you also Mike , Yep I am still a Paramedic in Clark have been in EMS 26 years as well still at my shop on my days off , been pulling wrenches for 33 years , kind of like an old Farmer hard to keep them off a tractor , and it is hard for me to keep a wrench out of my hand totally . I have been in contact with Tomatoe Farmer in the the last week or so , he was going to mail the service manual back to me . I will buy you a cup of coffee and a donut next time I see you at the Diner , Service manual or not . I allways enjoy good conversation .
  11. 1466 PTO retainer ring

    Yep after rereading it you are correct , sorry for any confusion . On the first read I took as he was turning the output shaft ,
  12. 1466 PTO retainer ring

    That is correct if he has the late style pto with the hydraulic applied brakes . The early style pto had spring applied brakes and you shouldn't be able to turn it .
  13. 1466 PTO retainer ring

    Just looking at your photo to me it looks likes you may have the idler gear shaft in upside down , the shaft should have a notch going half way across the face of the shaft ( for lack of a better term ) on the end of it that goes toward the clutch side , the notch stops the idler gear shaft from spinning when the pump housing is in place . Aside from the input shaft of the pump , if you didn't take that apart , the only other places I can think of at the moment that a smaller snap ring can be is the one that retains the 540 drive gear or the clutch spring retainer .
  14. Why wont it run?!?! IH 263 Gas

    Possiblevmassive intake leak , remove intake hose from carb and put your hand over carb intake and turn engine over and see if there is good suction .
  15. Head Bolts

    If you replace the sleeve oring be sure and get the correct size as the german engines used 2 different thickness of orings depending on engine serial number . If I remember right I think there were 5 mm and 6 mm thickness . There is only one oring per sleeve .
