  4. Fuel Shutoff Solenoid 7220 trouble shooting pic

    Good point Injpumped. I checked and it is bottomed. I disconnected from pump to make sure it is able to do that. I even lessened the pull to make sure it doesn't even try to pull on the extension spring at all, that is built into solenoid arm. It still let go and tractor dies. Thanks Mark. Last Thursday drove it 20 miles to dealer, put on dyno, shut on and off few times, drove home 20 miles and never died once! Now I can't even get it out of shed or drive around yard. Must be that extra fuel were pumping Now! Lol

  6. My 7220 has been randomly shutting off after starting. Sometimes after 3 to 5 seconds, and sometimes several minutes later. I had put a jumper wire on cab solenoid to eliminate the cab solenoid and/or the signal wire from key that turns it on........ Same problem existed, it would still randomly die. Cleaned the cab post under right front corner of cab to make sure I wasn't loosing power to cab. Didnt think it was because cab fan on high speed would still be running when tractor would die. I checked the big plug under right front corner of cab that is the harness going to engine, it was fine. So I cobbled up a harness at connector of solenoid to check power. Pin A - solenoid hold in power Pin B - solenoid pull in power (Has power while cranking motor) Pin C - ground Finally got it to die with my test light on the A pin wire. The light never went out but the solenoid let go. Those solenoids are $212ish. Kinda want to make sure that is the problem before you buy it Last year the cab solenoid did go bad, which causes similiar issues. Jus thought I would share. Can be a common problem on the Magnums and need to figure out what may be wrong. Most of time it is cab solenoid or power post coming into cab.
  7. 1975 model 966

    By the tag in pic, serial # is 72 model. If it is 966 tag cant read middle number. Tractor was put together. Has turbo motor, 86 series rear housing, 86 series Ta housing ( more than likely) and the top deck is prolly from a 966 because of the style of lift arms attached (cobbled) onto the turnbuckle arms.
  8. I was enrolled in Tech School there when they had the 50 series school. They brought in the tractors, and all the Block men/service reps tore them down in our shops. I remember the reps telling us how few of metric tool sizes were needed. That was the era of 'here comes the metric' We got to sit in on the training. I still have the 50 series manuals for that service school. When session was over. They reassembled them and drove them out. Geez, if I only would have took pics of that back then, brand new 50 series stripped down to bare transmission housings........ heck was in college, had 2 legged rear end housings on my mind!
  9. 1975 model 966

    Looks like a marriage. 986 rear end and Ta housing. Put together . Is kinda sharp If that is even a 966 serial tag. That would be a 72 model. Can't read tag 9?6 One photo you can see the 86 series turn buckle lift arms attached to the 966 style top deck 3pt arms. Very wrong! 966 BS have round lift arms with crank handle. I have a true BS 966
  10. Yep, so glad I got to go on that plant tour. I still remember the paintings on the walls. Especially the night time one of the 2+2 on the wall. Ironically it was right next to where they had one off the line that was split in two fixing some assembly issues.
  11. corn is late , really late

    Dryest crop here are the beans, yesterday they were 16 to 17, lol Still haven't finished that field of beans I posted a picture I started Sept 30. Many have barely started or haven't started beans. Keeps raining every couple days. 20 to 30% beans done around here guessing. Neighbor has 4000+ and others several 1000's and others several100's to do. Guys are doing corn, it is 20 to 25%.
  12. 86 series split gasket mystery

    A Lot of great info in this thread. Thanks guys. Gonna have to print and save👍
  13. Thought I would share this story. The thread on building a Sentry made me think of this. Back when 50 series were new I worked at dealership. I got to go to service school '83 -'84ish and it was at Scott Community College near the Quad Cities and near the Farmall Plant. Our local company service rep was Dan Renaud of IH. Dan Renaud knew the 50 series Hyd system, Sentry System very very well. It was his job I guess, but he was good. Dan built this diagnostic trouble shooting simulator. He could flip a switch, or a series of switches and it would simulate an issue. It was the coolest thing. He would show us many scenarios of what could happen to a 50 series and how to troubleshoot the Sentry and or Hydraulics at that service school. Fast forward to 2010, I was at the Farm Progress Show in Boone and recognized him at the CaseIH booth. We visited about back in the day. I asked him about his 50 series simulator board. He said you know, I had that sitn in my basement for years. I jus disassembled it a year or so ago. It's neat to see those type of guys still involved with the company. I did a search and found him still involved as of 2014 with combines for CaseIH.
  14. 30 years ago today it snowed

    Congrats! Sounds like harvest got put on hold for your wedding!! Worked out!!
  15. Anyone else working on theirs?

    Rainy day project, lots of them days lately. 2388 steering wheel was loose and squeaking. Found the top bushing with top wore off and it slid down inside housing. Simple fix, new ones are in, pic of old ones, feels like I'm driving a new one!
