  1. It seems most trucks have a steel sleeve inside the bushings that the bolt rides in. IH didn't use this sleeve. The bolt is in direct contact with the rubber bushings. All I did was stick some needle nose pliers in the bushing and twist them out. They came out quite easily. Man were they shot too. The bolt in the spring loop side had cut its way to where it was almost steel on steel. By measuring from the concrete to the top of the wheel opening in the fender, I assume the extra springs are there to compensate for sagging springs, because both sides measure 34", but the driver side has two more leaves. Not too long ago, I took out 2 leaves on each side in the rear. They had been added along the way. It rode so rough, it would bounce off the ground on a rough road.
  2. I went ahead and took them off. Every time I work on this truck I find a new surprise. Someone added 2 springs to the driver side. There are also shims under both shock mount plates, between the axle and the shock mount plate. Why would someone add two springs to one side, and what do the shims do?
  3. I bought new front leaf spring bushings for my 1964 1300. I am looking for tips on removal of old ones and installation of new ones. Can it be done with the springs on the truck? If not, is a press needed? Thanks for any input.
  4. It was the mechanical lift pump. I replaced it and the rubber fuel hose. I really don't know where I'd be without the help of the people on this forum. A thousand thanks. Getting at that rear bolt was quite a job. There must be a handful of bolts on every engine that are darn near impossible to handle without profanity. That was a tough one. Thanks again.
  5. Thank you all so much for the advice. I am going to pick up a lift pump and see what I can find. I was going to get one yesterday because for the price, it ain't a bad idea to update it anyway.
  6. On the Schrader valve question, there is what I consider plenty of fuel coming out. It has a mechanical lift pump so turning the key on doesn't do anything. The engine has to be turning over for fuel to go through the filter. I was wondering about the governor because while it's going down the road, it gets little bursts of energy, without moving the pedal. I am fearing that the governor may be to blame. It was running fine last Tuesday. I had to go out of town for a few days, when I cranked it up Saturday, the problem began. It started up fine, but after idling a couple minutes, the trouble started. Should I crack open the injector lines and try to purge air? Thanks for the ideas. Keep them coming.
  7. I have a problem with my 1988 Ford F250, 7.3 idi, and am hoping for some advice. I believe the injector pump may be the problem. The engine will start but dies pretty quickly. Then it takes a lot of starter and pedal pumping to get it going again. It sometimes seems to be idling okay, then starts stumbling and running really rough. Then it will clear up and seem to be okay. Then while going down the road, it is lacking power, but occasionally will "clear up" and get a little boost, then loose power again. I changed the fuel filter and the lift pump seems fine. Is this likely the injection pump? How can I find out? Thanks for any help.
  8. Wow. Thanks for the kind words. I just might try to take it. I'm hoping to have my 350 Hi Utility ready for that show. I'm gonna have to have at least a 40' trailer if I were to take a tractor and the wagon. I've got almost 2 years, so I'll see what I can do.
  9. I've got plenty of that. We have to have it, don't we? I do not believe a man could tolerate having these dinosaurs around if he didn't have patience. I know every time I go to start up one of these machines and find something else worn out or broken, it takes a great deal of patience to get things going again.
  10. So I guess I should just take it all apart and see what I can find. Any tips on disassembly? Tips that could keep me from wasting time? Thanks
  11. I have a model 2 tiller behind my 1650. I use it several times a year for gardening duties. There are no grease fittings anywhere on it. I am wondering if there is some lubrication that is needed from time to time. I have the owner's manual, but it doesn't cover any type of maintenance. It is bound to need a lube. It is a 1975 model. From time to time it seizes up and will not make a full revolution. I have to work the drive pulley back and forth for a while, and it will eventually free up. I have the tiller off right now while I am repairing the hydro trunion and replacing some seals. I was hoping for some advice before I start taking it apart. There is no part of the inner workings that is easy to get to. Thanks as always
  12. Thanks you for the kind words. I had several people flag me down on the road and compliment it. It is nice. I'll eventually get the nerve to put it in a parade. I'm not exactly a social butterfly. It will certainly see a many hayrides in its future.
  13. I built removable benches for hay rides. I took my wife, daughter, and two nieces on a ride last weekend. My wife and daughter said the bumps are rough, but my young nieces enjoyed leaving the seats on the big bumps!!
