  1. Hello all Ive recently installed a newer style oil pressure gauge on my M so i can see my exact PSI. Im idiling at 50 psi but here is my question. I only use the tractor for pulling so about 2 or 3 times a month. And when i start it it takes about 8 seconds for the gauge to climb,but once it goes it goes fast. Is that 8 seconds of little oil psi ok? When i checked the base plate on the oil pump last winter i was superised at how little wear there was on it compared to all the pictures ive seen on the web. None at all really. I think everyt hing is ok im just not sure about the pump taking so long to get me pressure

  4. I am currently in the process of rebuilding a Farmall M engine and was wondering about running a used cam with used followers from a different engine? I've always heard this is a no-no on a non-roller follower automotive engines; once the cam and followers are run together, they are supposed to be mated for life. Does this hold true for tractor engines, too? I really don't want to shell out $180 per follower for new ones if I don't need to, but I don't want to end up with a flat cam, either. Anyone had them re-surfaced? Thanks.
  5. Wht to do?

    Boy now I have the options! As I've stated the SIL got that 706. Runs but needs some carb work but I have blown snow with it. Now that it's here and I can use it as/when needed I don't need the M for what to do? Hang onto it? Sell it? Get the wife's cousin to run it through his crusher? What would you do? Tin is straight. Needs new rear rubber. Could use a little paint..............OK a lot! Runs great! Rick
  6. 14.9x38 vs 15.5.38

    I bought a Farmall M with bald 14.9x38 tires ,with one new rim.Tire guy says 14.9x38 are expensive and hard to come by.I want the tractor to set level and look good.We pull trailer plows with our tractors too.I really only wanna by one rim.Should I get 15.5x38s or 13.6x38s?Any help appreciated.
  7. I was wondering if anyone on here would have the manual/installation instructions for a Heisler 9 Speed for a Farmall M? I would be looking to get either a copy of it or pictures of it, if possible. I would be more than happy to reimburse someone for the time and effort. I've tried my usual manual sources, and haven't had any luck finding one that I could buy. Thanks.
  8. There is an auction coming up pretty close to home with 3 tractors on the bill. They all look to be in nice, straight shape. I know auctions are unpredictable but what do you think these should bring in a fair market? I think they all have more than 200hrs making the value somewhere under 40K. It looks like it might be worth a 15 minute drive to watch these sell. I'm not really looking for another tractor but would hate to see them sold too cheap. 49' M, good paint, matching tires with good tread, good paint, fenders, 1 set of rear weights 57' 230, fast hitch, matching tires, fair paint, 1 set of rear weights International 300U (no serial number given for the year), fast hitch, mismatched rear tires with good tread, good paint
  9. I posted this other day about my farmall m that is blowing oil out the rear seal. No doubt it's a split. Needs a rear seal for sure, maybe a clutch since I'll have it apart, I thinking I'll probably have to roll bearings in and probably could use rings. Right there alone I figure $500 in parts and it may very well need a full overhaul. The tractor isn't in great shape cosmetically and I would probably never restore it as it has some issues that would always bother me (repaired rear casting). It also has some rear end noise that I think is in the differential. Trying to figure out if I pick up another M or super m for $2000 that is in better shape and use mine for a parts tractor or sell it for $800 to offset the cost of the replacement (tires are worth that). Just an M, I know, but it does get used here. Best tractor in the woods for firewood, works great on my 6 ft brush hog, rake hay, pull wagons, heavy enough to pull out stuck items, and to be honest I don't care if it gets scratched, dented, or otherwise broken as we do have several other newer tractors for tillage, planting, and haying. So what would you do, repair or replace? I'll try to add a photo and maybe a video link.
