  1. Last leak on the 1066

    I will try to remember the pics. I forgot the name of the guy restoring a 1066 but he has a ton of utube videos about the restor he is doing. He has a couple where he pulls the valve apart. Nothing tricky. Thanks again GT&T.
  2. Last leak on the 1066

    Thanks for the tip. The tractor has excellent brakes but this leak has gotta go. I found a little on utube, looks simple.
  3. Last leak on the 1066

    I have fixed the leaking injection pump head, one axle, tranny brake shaft o ring, steering motor, hydraulic filter cover & I put the screw in adapter and a new seal on the lower pto shaft. The last leak is the Power Brake Valve. I see a kit listed, part # 71487C92. Is this a fairly simple tear apart, new orings and gaskets type deal? Thanks in advance.
  4. New to me 1066 Hi Clear

    The guy had three and this one was the worst looker at first glance. The first thing I noticed that the front end was in excellent shape, no welds. She also ran excellent. I am on about my sixth pressure washing.

    Thanks for the info on the engine lookup. I actually found the pipe today. I don't see how it's going to fit but that will have to wait a bit, heading out of town. I found the whole kit with the valve cover used for $150 online. This is a 1971 gear drive tractor. Serial number 10109. I think it's the original engine.
  6. New to me 1066 Hi Clear

    I just went to the Case IH parts site to look at the 1086 vent/ breather pipe. I can't find anything related to the engine??????
  7. New to me 1066 Hi Clear

    The battery covers came from ASAP Tractor parts. They fit ok. I'm just not crazy about the whole design. What's wrong with a straight up and down design. I must be missing something. I found the batteries at a Tractor Supply that just opened so they were fresh. Hmmm...I think there was a 1086 where I was today getting the pto linkage. Road trip.

    Just a little progress update. New fenders and brackets. They need to move up one more hole to be even with the hood. New seat from Devon and I rebuilt the suspension. Leaks fixed....injection pump head, one axle, tranny brake shaft o ring, steering motor, hydraulic filter cover & I put the screw in adapter and a new seal on the lower pto shaft. New to me rear tires and rims. Found all the pto linkage today. I bought a new aftermarket grill as this one ahs been repaired but I am not happy with it. It's done nice but it is a bunch of square tubing and my new grill screen doesn't fit it. Anyone got a mint one to sell? The last pic is my vent hose. What was on these from the factory and where was it routed?
  9. Need advice with diesel leak on 1086

    I fixed my injection pump head leak last week on the 1066. Downloaded and printed the first 20 or so pages from the web. $39 pump kit. Not too bad of a job. With the advice from the previous posters went really well. Thanks guys.

    For what new square head bolts will cost you could probably buy an ultrasonic cleaner.

    Read your manual on how to attach your rim to the wheel center using the two different clamps mentioned above. If you don’t it will wobble bad.
  12. 656 injection pump

    If you can"t get the tool you can try this, it worked for me. Cut an aluminum soda can and get enough metal to wrap around the seals. Secure it with a ty wrap. Slide it in, cut the ty wrap and gently remove the aluminum.

    Are there any rv campgrounds around you? If there are drive thru them every now and then. If you see something interesting stop and look and see if it’s for sale. You probably won’t buy it that day but at least you don’t travel to just look at a truck. Those older gentlemen take care of there trucks and most have only pulled campers.

  15. Hitch in-a-ride

    Good score. I have one:( I found it on Craigslist at a junk shop and convinced the owner to ship it via Fastenal.
