  1. 1466 steering and clutch hydraulics

    966 did the same thing last week. Checked hyd oil level, was a over full mark. Changed hyd filter, was overdue. Oil color good, still no steeering. Red dash pressure light on. Loosened the ck or relief valve under MCV till oil started seeping out then tighten back up. Dont take plug all the way out could have a mess.Had steering. Will be checking out steering pump next.
  2. Fuel problems

    I had same problem with Bio-D few years back, everything jelled. Got some Power Services Arctic Express Bio-D Anti-gel. Was expensive but got us thru till fuel was used up. Fuel man I have now winter blends starting first of Nov. Also use Howes fuel treat/anti jell when it gets this cold. Cheap insurance.Power Svc also good product. Had -12 few days back diesel pickup skid loader and 966 ran with no problems.
  3. Cold start. Who want some

    Have a 966 and 766 if they spin they start. The 9 is the better of the two though. NH160 skid loader,went to feed cows last week spun but no-go. Changed fuel filter and took right off. Long overdue! Fuel man winter blends fuel but I'm still adding a little bit of anti-gel. Cheap insurance. Always try to plug them in if I know I know I need them. Just takes at least twice as long to get anything done.
  4. IH 1460 combine Hydrostatic Cable Replacement

    If I remember correctly I took side panel off by cab, side panels by rotor undid clamps hooked small rope on and puiled it out used rope to help guide new cable in. Grommets behind cab were the worst part. Helps to have to two people. Not hard just tedious.
  5. My 55 W Baler saga comes to an end today

    Dad had a 50T with a dolley wheel. I remember if we killed the motor it was a hard starter. Continental motor also remember watching dad pull flywheel to change a brass shear key once in a while also.
  6. dairy cow sales in your area?

    Herd expansion in Elkhart Co. area continue to see new dairy barns being put up also bidding up the price of farm ground. Most have newer high dollar equip. Lots of kids cheap labor. Still at the price of milk no one can figure out how they do it. Neighbor milks 120 head. Parents retired but still help. Sister and him do the dairy. Good operation. Decent equip but nothing new. Says there getting by but sure not getting rich.

    My dad bought a new 966 in the early 70's. with quick hitch. Had to order it special with quick hitch and 38" rear tires for him. Still use it regularly. Good tractor!
