  1. Thanks . That's what I found it was . Made the task a lot faster of refilling .
  2. Having heavy frost and loosing power on and off to the electrical lines must have done a number to my frost plug block heater on the 706 . Anyhow its dead quiet and I need to replace it . Draining the engine coolant and refilling it . Is the petcock by the thermostat for the purpose of bleeding air out of the top end of the cooling system ?
  3. I also run a 8430 baler . Belt tension is non adjustable . Snug the tension valve set and go . Power wise you maybe have some heavy swaths or windrows ? I run a CASE 830 on my baler ever since I had the baler . Need to bump the hydraulic valve on the tractor once and a while to keep the belts tight but never noticed it loading the tractor down much .
  4. Hum ,,,, Pay Day ?
  5. Hope you don't need to start the flathead in cold weather . My 8-n will spin and sputter and has a **** of a time starting when its really cold outside with no cold starting aid ( heater ) . The hydraulic 3 point lift is not much better . But I think there is a pressure leak causing that .
  6. Found the check plugs behind the rear axles . Many thanks .
  7. Where is this square pipe plug located ? The only place I know to fill is through the oil check stick gauge hole .
  8. 3 drain plugs under the back axle , ( one above the drawbar and one each side of it ) 2 drain plugs mid section .
  9. changing transmission / hydraulic fluid and filter on my 706 Farmall . Everything tells me the rear system holds 17gallons of fluid . Drained out mid and rear section and filled 3- 5 gallon buckets . Are 2 gallons hiding some where or could it have been just low ? Does the power take off use fluid separate from the tranny/hydraulic system ? I don't have a manual for it so I have to ask silly questions .
  10. did you get it glowing orange hot ? It some times takes 2-3 heat treatment cycles I have found out .
  11. And in the early 1980's a lot of Us at FARMALL were watching the first Chrysler Bail-Out REAL close. There was a little talk about IH asking for help like Ioccoca did. I heard it didn't happen because IH only employed 35,000 company wide. Chrysler was about ten times that many then. I wouldnt care if chrysler was ten times larger . Wasnt IH the top agri buisness leader over John Deere ? I dont think international even bothered to ask our government for help .
  12. Rick do the members have to sighn in NOW? cant we just pop in as a guest to check on topics
