  1. New to me 6588

    Good looking 6588. I love my 3788 lots of tractor for the money although mine was a money pit to get back up to par. Go anywhere never get stuck and lots of power and still simple enough to keep it going without too much technology

  3. TD40 Parts

    I have a WD40 vertical head tractor that has the brass carb missing and the exhaust manifold is real bad. A TD 40 should be the same . Any help locating these parts would be appreciated. Thank You
  4. 3 point plow settings

    Try lengthening your top link some to discourage the points to be so agressive. Its a balancing act with the forward motion of the tractor ofsetting the digging action of the plow. More landsides would help too
  5. Red Diamond RD450 engine

    Id be guessing to say the port is on the water outlet that is bolted on the side of the head or in your picture on the top of the head in the middle . Looks like there is something there already
  6. 282D engine trouble in a 706 Farmall

    Cant remember exactly but more than once was running a similar engine in a combine. Had the same 6 second thing going on. There was a fitting on top of the pump in the return line that plugged and caused the problem. Must be a check for the return . It was a mystery cause everything was bled. I dont have a manual here but I would guess it would identify that fitting

  8. Gas start motors

    The TD 35 and TD40 motors have no parts availability especially the injectors and. the big pumps so those parts are in demand . The heads are hard to find in any condition. There are three styles. These were followed by the TD 14 and TD 18 which do share some engine parts
  9. Thank You for your helpful effort. Super post
  10. Poor compression/ Pre combustion chambers

    Neil I dont know about the sealant,Never have depended on it or expected it was going to save the day The mixing of the valves could very easily be the culprit.Most old guys will finish a valve job by lapping the valves individually by hand thus making them not exactly interchangeable.On the other side of the coin lots of valve grinders will grind to allow just a slight wear in so if you can get it running its possible that it may straighten out quite quickly. If you take the head back off you can check the seat by putting a pool of fuel on the closed valve heads and see if it stays or leaks out
  11. Stuck 350 Engine

    no biggie you dont want to run it or turn it over with that rust in there anyway
  12. Got my 1066 done

    Very good job looks great
  13. starter and generator for a mid 30s i12

    The generator is just the common old Farmall generator but you must have the lower engine cooling elbow with bracket cast on the top. The starter used matches a Chevy cr from the past need someone else to chip in with the details
  14. Transmission help on old farmall

    Jack there is a drive shaft from the clutch to the transmission in the torque tube . The U joint is made of rubber . One corner may have let loose letting the drive shaft spin around out of round and scrape and hit on things making the noise
  15. 560 and a 5-14 plow

    You said pull type as in trailer plow then I dont think so. Not enough wieght or power.
