  1. Sad night for a good guy...

    I have about a half dozen Deere manuals on the 55 series tractors if he could use them as I never will . Picked them out of dumpster when dealer replaced when superceded.
  2. I know, that is pretty much what I am saying but I thought Ingersoll Rand was better than that. I am not an electrician so presumed this compressor would do the job. To get one that would easily handle my sand blaster would cost about three times as much and require me to rewire my garage. I looked at several other makes before I bought this one and It came closest to my situation and budget. Live and learn. The motor I have on there now I am sure is not much better but reducing the load keeps it running nice and cool whereas the original motor got , you might say, pretty darn hot. I did hook an ammeter on it also and did not see any thing that looked over the rated draw.
  3. I burned up a motor on my Ingersoll rand (actually wife was using it sand blasting) in less than one year. After a lot of back and forth , part of it due to me living in Mn and purchase made in S. D. Ingersoll did send me a new same model motor. Voltage when pumping near full pressure was over 230 volts coming into motor on the new one as that is what they wanted to blame problem on. Well, that motor got very warm after running for several minutes and I always tried to give it a break when I was doing the sand blasting. It could keep up but not get ahead so to speak. About 8 years later, another motor went. Would pop the breaker and not run up to speed with belt off compressor. I ordered a similar motor from somewhere, forget where now and I installed smaller pulley on motor, left same pulley on compressor. Compressor runs about 30 % slower but motor can run without even getting good and warm. A motor repair man said they just try to push those high speed motors too hard and are not capable of good service. He told me of converting to the lower speed motor with pulley changes on both ends but I took the easier way and less expensive way out as I don't need the compressor nearly as much anymore. I was really disappointed as I thought Ingersoll Rand, yaa, good stuff. Get what you pay for they say. Can you say Chinese.
  4. Lot of good information there. I hate those out of round bores but could live with maybe .002 ok. Have seen some with as much as .006. I wasn't working on that engine as someone was doing his own job and had me measure it for him. Sent him to the machine shop. Now, I have no idea if this is one of the engines involved or not but some where along the line, machine shop calls me about cracking sleeves in a 407. I gave him my usual thoughts about installing them and added you cannot push that sleeve in until it bottoms out and you need a tool to get proper depth. He says bull in not so nice a terms and we left it at that. Well, a few years later I was over there and we some how got into the discussion of sleeve cracking on those engines. He says, yaa, somebody told me they can't be pushed all the way down and have to be have specific protrusion. Takes care of the problem along with proper fit of course. I didn't say anything. He is a very good machinist , does excellent work but doesn't take to shall we say constructive advice.
  5. 986 - 66 similarities

    The cabs do not come with shifting mechanism so that is a whole different ball game. Also, the 88 series cabs are have a little more room behind the seat, couple inches. This might give you problems using the later shift mechanism, not sure. Might crowd your fuel tank, don't remember for sure but that extra length made it possible to set the seat to full rear position without contacting the rear upholstery of cab and ripping it off. Also made it a whole lot more difficult to get at the hitch internal adjustment of drop control valve under fuel tank, in front of rear cover.
  6. 1466 clutch boost remove and replace

    Take off that whole cab support. Year around is after market cab. I doubt any kits, just individual parts. Take note of the adjustment as the rear adjustment is to set the booster valve with no tension on input but no excess slack either. Front adjustment is for clutch free travel. Also, note you will be disturbing the pivot for the TA operating spool so be sure when done it contacts the snap ring lightly when TA lever is ahead.
  7. 1256 Fuel leak, help!

    Yes there will be fuel in there as the seals to keep fuel from getting into crankcase are in the drive housing in front of the pump. You might want to be sure it still runs good now because if you have a partially plugged return fitting on top of pump, due to failure of the flex ring on governor, the pump will build excessive pressure in the housing and cause any susceptible places to leak that would not leak much with normal pressure. This pressure in pump housing will cause incomplete charging of the pumping plungers and eventually a not run condition. Look for particles that appear to be coffee grounds in the check valve on return fitting.
  8. High pressure relief valves for the hydrostatic drive is located in the center section. I believe you can get at them from the side cover . May only get at one on each side of tractor as there is one for forward and one for reverse.
  9. Bergdahl court martial acquital

    I agree. He was CONVICTED of desertion so that is not in doubt. The sentence was just PC crap. Not sure firing squad would have been good idea but maybe about twenty years in prison.
  10. Spit and quit on M

    If it runs good under load when warmed up, I would not give do anything to carburetor. Those manifolds are really cold for good performance when out there working. I just leave choke on a little and gradually open it up. Doing that is allowing it to run richer when cold but still carburetor is set for warmed up engine. If you open carburetor up enough to eliminate this you will be running rich when warm. Then you can cuss champion spark plugs for fuel fouling.

    A lot of those covers with the wing nuts do not fit properly from the factory. With a new , oiled 0-ring, there should be considerable resistance to pop cover on. Some seem to have too deep a groove for o-ring and others the cover just too sloppy a fit. Using the old 0-ring is asking for trouble. I agree that making that mcv pump pull oil up hill and then down is stupid. Way too many problems with aeration that could have been avoided with a little engineering.
  12. 986 coolant leak

    On those hoses, we used to have to go out and tighten the new tractors hose clamps as they would start to leak while standing in the lot during cold weather. Also, the castings the hose fits on normally has a casting seam that is pretty rough on some and I would file or grind that seam ridge off so hose would seal properly. On the engine temp, a new thermostat would most likely not help you. Probably putting a orfice in the bypass hose would help as the bypass is so big the thermostat doesn't even need to open during cold weather. BUT, those temp gauges don't start to even come off of cold until maybe 150 degrees so engines aren't running as cool as it seems.
  13. 282D engine trouble in a 706 Farmall

    The only injection pump number I find in my book is the 631-20AE for a D-282 in a 706. Only AJ of any kind was on a 503 and 403 combine. The last four digits and letters are the applications number IH put on for particular machines . Of course, my book is almost as old as the tractor.
  14. 986 axel

    Yes dual hubs will fit from 986 to 1066. Most axle housing break when axle itself breaks due to trying to hold them to the ground. Tires are your slip clutch on a tractor. But, with that being said, realize that all axles do BEND a little under load. Not much, but some and fatigue sets in . Some are made better than others.
  15. 986 axel

    The part that is broken is the axle housing and they are different due to cab mounts unless like I said, the very very last 66 series may have the 86 housing. The axle on a 966 is same size as a 1066 but I don't know if it is the same exact part number and material. The 1086 has a larger axle, same size as 1466.
