  1. Update. Before I dug into the MCV, I removed the plug (5/8) that is located on the right hand side of the plate and bled the air out of her. She spit a bunch of air when we started the tractor. Shut her down and put the plug back in with new o-ring and the problem is now solved. I still am keeping the MCV pump on standby cause you never know when it could take a dump. But my steering is now resolved. She steers like a dream now. I just wanted to update any of those who encounter this. I spoke with several tractor mechanics (old time IH mechanics that are now retired). They told me to try that first. Just in case you were all wondering. I knew you were all dying to know. The pump is going on my shelf of other stand by parts. Thanks for all the help.
  2. New one ordered already. Man these tractors are bleeding me. I spent $7000 grand on my 856 last year and now this 1466 is playing catchup.
  3. Can they be rebuilt or do you have to replace the whole pump? or get the spring kit?
  4. once it warms up, it steers ok. But this is also true during the summer months as well. I replaced the filter also.
  5. Do I have air in the lines or is it something else? When I start my tractor, the steering wheel sticks as though it doesn't want to turn. After applying armstrong, the steering wheel turns, but the wheels don't. I drained all the old Hydraulic oil out and replaced it with Hy trans Ultra traction. I just put my rebuilt pto and everything is working there. I have always had this problem with this tractor. it takes it a while, then the steering pump kicks in. It is just annoying.
  6. Sid, I hear what your saying and yes farmers need to anticipate downturns, However, In my case which is Almond growing we have had stable prices and decent yields. Then the drought hit about four years ago coming off a good year and knowing the future uncertain I opted to pay down dept . & not to buy equipment knowing that I had four wells needing new in the coming two years. All principal reductions is taxed income any money saved for rainy day is taxed @40% Fed & state in my case. When the FEDS & State of Calif. got done with me in 2015(2014income) I gave them all the money I had saved for the four new Wells & pumps & a new drip system to save water. I had to borrow the money from bank to do the water development in meantime yields in 2015 were way down (40%) because of drought and prices have soften. My point being Farmers can only save a little at a time or Gov. will penalize you if you try to play it to safe. and as far as prepayments yes they work but you can only do the "concrete" business that you know well& You know you'll be using otherwise you put your budget out there you are vulnerable to lot of uncertainness and loss of operating funds. So ,in theory sounds great and is prudent, but our tax laws force us to keep playing roulette only real protection we have for unforeseen is equity but it takes years to build . Savings accounts same its after tax ,savings takes long because every dollar I save approx. 40 % goes to OUR UNCLE & State. Just MHO , Tony You hit it out of the park with your last paragraph. I am an agronomist here in Central WI and we are just rapping up prepay with growers/producers. These folks have to spend the money somewhere. I have many that buy machinery or land just to hold and held there to possibly sell later. Otherwise like you say uncle sam gets it. We are way overdue on overhauling our tax code. Flat tax or fair tax or whatever you want to call it is in heavy order.
  7. Thanks for the clarification Dan.
  8. Like I stated, I only got 9 steel, and 8 fiber disks. Do I go two and then one and two and then one or do I go one and one?
  9. Good evening all. I worked on my PTO all day, changed all the seals, o-rings etc. The clutch pak went to **** and that is the main reason I had to pull the pto out. Now that I went back to put in a new clutch pak, My IH service books says that I need 12 steel rings and 5 disks, and do two rings to one disk. Well my parts only came with 9 rings and 8 disks. What has everyone else done? Or did I not get the right amount of parts? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Brion
  10. Well as it comes to know surprise anymore, this tractor is beginning to become a real money pit. I have a cracked elbow that comes off the turbo that goes to the muffler. Also need a threaded flange that threads into the exhaust manifold that attaches to the other elbow that feeds the turbo. It is about 3.5 inches in lenght- 4 bolt flange. They want $400 for a new one.
  11. Very nice
  12. Not trying to beat a dead horse here. I really appreciate your gentlemen's advice. I will keep you posted on what happens. Again, not wanting to nag nag nag about this. It has just raised my frustration level to astronomical heights. I really wish these had primer pumps.
  13. They will both serve the purpose you are desiring. But if you ever at some point need a bigger tractor with more weight and ponies, the 5088 would be the way to go. But if you are not looking at something that big or have no need for that much HP, then the 3688 is the way to go. They are both great tractors. I know several potato farmers around here that have those 3688 with 4wd -awesome machines and they still use them to this day on their equipment. I have several dairy guys that have them ( I have operated it for him- spraying his crops with it) and it is sweet machine. - Note here, he has never touched that tractor since the day he bought it. He has kept up on routine oil and hydraulic changes. Still has all original tires since he bought it brand new. that is simply amazing! So either way, go with your gut feeling.
  14. Did you use a clear coat or did you use anything special with your paint. I use a hardener, and I am thinking of laying a clear coat after I paint mine. Just inquiring.
  15. Alright, I got it started. It turned out to be the fuel delivery valve. It idles fine, but now I can't get the throttle to work correctly. No throttle response. I can shut it off, but when you pull the throttle, nothing. Any advice? I ran out of time to monkey with it any further. In the meantime I am open for suggestions. Thank you.
