  1. Lets see some steps

    dads 856 has a step/toolbox just like that, ill have to ask him if that toolbox came with the tractor when grandpa bought it new in 68 or 69. i made a battery box/step for my 706 after i got it, it had an f25 farmhand loader and a rear entry cab on it when i got it which i removed, so i needed a step and battery box. ill have to get pictures and have my wife post them on here for me. the steps i made arent fancy but they are functional, just used some iron that i had laying around.
  2. Another simple 986 question

    sounds to me like its the starter drive. i dont know if you can get at the starter from under the cab very easily, thru the floor of the cab is the only way i have done it or seen anyone else do it. kind of a poor place for a starter to be but you dont have to work on the starter very often. a long extension and a 9/16 socket is what you need to get to your mounting bolts. after you get it out take it to a shop that specializes in starters and alternators and have them test and rebuild it.

    never had a problem with hycap stuff
  4. Down Corn

    see if any neighbors that have cattle would want to turn cows on it
  5. 2188 eating rotor belts?

    when the old belt broke did it bend the support for the tower that the chopper gearbox sits on, throwing the belt alignment off or when he was replacing the broken belt did he loosen the bolts for the chopper gearbox. if he did he might want to have someone realign the pulleys, alignment is very critical for the rotor belt

    could be a cab feed relay
  7. IH 856 rear end fluid change

    you can knock the plugs out from the three point top link hole, its not the easiest but doable
  8. 2388 cleaning fan belt

    its been awhile since ive worked on these combines but iirc there is bushings that the bottom sheave slides on inside the springs. the bushings and the holes in the sheave get worn, but also before you put your new belt on grab your top pulleys and see if the pulleys move in and out, if they do you will have to pull them pulleys and bearing housing off and rebuild housing with bearings, shaft, spacers and maybe the bearing housing. im pretty sure you have to have the variable speed adjuster swung out of the way to push/pull on pulleys
  9. Removing Roosa Master pump

    Might have air in your lines yet, crack the lines loose at the injectors to get air bled out. Crank engine until you get fuel squirting out your lines and then tighten lines up and then it should start right up.
  10. Spicer pull clutch

    I have had decent luck with an air hammer to get them to turn.
  11. clutch 1206

    were the 66 series the first to have boosters on them or was it an option on the 56 series? dads 856 custom does not have a booster but my father in laws 856 farmall does. my 966 has a booster but dads 966 did not have one.
  12. 826 Engine Swap

    what is wrong with the 1256?
  13. Sickle mowers

    is the wobble box getting wore out so sickle is not making its full stroke, or the sickle drive pin and bushing are wore?
  14. 806 Hard Power Steering While Turning Right

    check bushings/bearings in front axle, my father in law had that happen on his 756, found bushing in spindle had piled up and would bind up when wheel was turned one direction but would turn ok the other way
  15. Grandpa's 806

    I acquired a 706 diesel that had been sitting for about 10 years, cracked all the drain plugs to make sure there wasnt any water in the oil, checked the fluids, put new batteries in it and started it up. It didnt run real smooth, im guessing the inj pump was sticky from sitting for so long, drained fuel and put fresh fuel in along with a qt of atf and runs alot better. I ran the tractor for a while and then changed all of the fluids and filters.
