  1. That would be ultra-super fine paper. the kind for wet sanding paint on high end vehicles. And anyways, if you can embed sand in the points, they are not worth using. they should be made of tungsten or some other super-hard material in order to prevent erosion from spark jump. They should ideally be a near mirror finish for longevity.
  2. Yep, I always keep a good old condenser in my tool box to clip on the side of a distributor as part of the initial diagnosis for a poor running tractor.
  3. Just a heads up... I have noticed a few times in the last year that new points sets for the IHC H4 mag have a glazing on them. (supplied by Steiner). They look clean, but will not make contact. Sometimes it can be scratched off with a fingernail, (it is not recommended to handle points unless absolutely necessary).Yesterday they did not show any sign of glazing, but would not make contact. I polish them with ultra fine wet/dry sand paper and blow them clean with compressed air. I suggest when rebuilding the magneto to first remove the old points and condenser. Clean the housing as usual then install the points first and set gap to .013" Do not use the .020" feeler gauge supplied with the kit.. Be sure that the coil and condenser wires are not touching the case and check the points with an Ohm meter to see that they are making good contact when closed, and open circuit when they are open. This also checks that the condenser wire is not grounding to the case. Continue with the tuneup and always check for spark before installing. Cheers. FD
  4. Here is a very fine 6-71 I picked up a couple of years ago. It came out of a GMC farm truck that was just too rotted out to be saved.
  5. I have had issues with reman injectors from CIH and from another supplier for the jd pencil types. I will now only send them to my pump shop. Never had an issue with ones done by a good shop. Check your pump timing though. VERY easy to do. Remove the pipe plug, line up marks and check the front pulley timing marks.
  6. ...Love my Detroits. Classic sound and as simple as they come. My restored 1969 6V53 is going in a Ford F-450 with 6 speed direct synchro Eaton, 4 speed overdrive 6041 auxiliary and a rear axle from an IH 4500 with 3:06 gears. The tags were missing from this engine but I have another set of tin covers that rate a 6V53 with C45 injectors at 210hp. Mine has N45 injectors.
  7. Thanks Fellas! Earl called this morning, and it is on it's way!
  8. Thanks. I called and they don't have one but will look into it.
  9. Desperately trying to locate a complete thermostat housing assembly for a DT 407 engine so that I can install a turbo on an 856 for a customer... Any ideas? Thanks.
  10. ...not to make light of your situation, but I have seen it.....not cool. I had one customer lose 3 diesel systems in one month due to fuel contamination....and not by him!
  12. Anything is better than green with yellow wheels. I would rather run a fleet of Belarus tractors.
  13. There are way too many "best" singers to list.. all great in their own sub-genres.. but I turn the station when Ozzy Osborne solo stuff comes on (Sabbath days were much better), or Foreigner (especially Jukebox Hero). The guy from The Offspring annoys me too because he is trying too hard signing out of his vocal range. I saw a live performance once on TV and you could tell that he was really struggling. The late great musical genius Frank Zappa readily admitted that he wasn't a singer, so when he wanted great vocals he hired GREAT vocalists.
  14. Thanks Howard!
  15. Hi folks. I got this message from a friend today... and ideas? Hey guys...Need International expertise information. Fire Dept has a 1925 International truck we are going to restore. Years ago the rearend was taken apart and now the parts are gone. Any places/areas/contacts we can maybe try and finding parts or whole rearends??? Thanks
