706 loader attachment, making cheap look better.

Recommended Posts

Hooked back up to the disc so I can repair that next. I have a Motocross ride at our track a few weeks on and need the disc for track prep.

Thanks for the compliments. I don't need to spend a lot of money to complete my vision for this tractor.

Strangely enough when I open the doors to one of the stops you don't even notice how "dirty" they are.

Looks good . Just don't go digging a lot of dirt or lifting heavy objects with the overhang of the loader. All the trouble with breaking bell housings and engine plates on the standards were with long loaders. The bucket weight will pick the rear end weight  up off the ground and all balanced. On the set back frontend.

Looks like a good spot for a 300 ford 6 cylinder doesn't it?

 ford has a IH connection

Ewwwww,  I think a 300-6 would be a frustrating power plant in a tractor.  I've wore two 300-6"s out, a carb'd one and an EFI one.  The EFI solved several problems the carb had but still didn't make much hp,  or mpg.  I think the C263, C291, or C301 IH engine would fit and perform better.  The 300-6 seemed to just give up in either version around 3000 rpm.  And there really wasn't an abundance of torque on the low end.

Not sure what connection IH and Ford had,  early diesel engines I guess,  Ford seemed to ignore suggestions IH made about SCA's early on,  then Ford forced IH to supply engines that produced much more HP than IH intended.  I was actually happy when Ford made their own 6.7L Powerstroke.  They seem to be the Hotrod of the diesel truck market but don't plan on them lasting a half million miles.

Anyhow, neat work you have done.

I have the Hough for heavy digging(once it runs). That is not this tractors purpose.

Looks good . Just warning you it is easy to bust them. I have changed more than a couple ta housings , engine plates and tractor side frames on standard ihc tractors the set back axle just messes with the balance of the loader. We have a loader on a farmall 1256 now and you won't break much but the standards were just different.

Pulled the broken shaft out of the 475 international disc today. A job that I thought was going to take hours took less than 20 minutes.

A quick check of my watch and I realized that the local IH dealer was still open. Broken parts to measure and new parts ordered and still home in time to have supper on time. If I knew it was this easy I would have done this last fall!

The disc is fixed and I have used it to clean up the weeds around the edge of the track. While it didn't take 20 minutes to reassemble it wasn't that hard of a job either, UNTIL! My buddies warned me that a disc is always broken, no matter what you do. This one was no exception. Almost all together and the last stand and bearing to slide on and, It fall to pieces. Off to the dealer and we have one in stock. Thank you, come again and its back together. I don't know what will break next, but it will, that I am sure of.

On the disk gang, If you did not clean/disk sand every blade and bushing surface where they fit together before reassembly...plan to check the tightness regularly.    Any dirt or rust will allow the gang to work loose.   Not that big of a deal--just check it and keep it as tight as you can get it.

Thanks for the advice I hadn't thought about that at all.

So the disc is working excellent, but the 706 quit running.

I idled down to step out and move a tire that is used for marking out the course and it stalled. No big deal I will just restart it. Uh UH, electrical system is dead and tractor is in the middle of the track. That's OK we can move it with the 275 versatile. Wrong it quit running in the middle of the track also. Next great idea.............. we can move everything off the track with the T300 bobcat. Actually it didn't quit and moved the 706 and disc off the track and moved the tractor back to the yard. I always want to rewire these things because that's 90 percent of what goes wrong anyways.

I also was noticing that the tractor was way down on power and smoking like crazy. Initial diagnosis would be plugged fuel filters.

The 276 , ......................... was out of fuel. Damn, well at least it was my buddies fault and I only got to stand in the rain and fix it.

That took about an hour of getting rained on and we had it running. It was mentioned several times that we shouldn't let that machine run out of fuel again. We knew that the fuel gauge didn't work, but apparently he hasn't fueled the machine up since we bought it this winter.

Well after determining we had a complete electrical failure on the 706, it was time for some detective work?

That was fairly easy. Attached the booster cables and everything lit right back up. I removed the 2 6v batteries and their associated bracketry. As near as I can tell, one of the batteries has an internal break. I hate the 2 battery systems to begin with! I will build a new bracket and place the battery where it isn't impossible to get cables on. Pictures will follow. After that repair then we will have a go at the fuel filters and maybe throw an oil change at the old girl.

So after a complete electrical failure that I believe to be a broken cell on one of the batteries I decided to switch to a single battery system.

I built a new battery box/holder for the 706 with a ton of room to install the battery with no hassles.

Naturally I had planned for this to slip in easily and you can see by the pics that there is a ton of room.

There was not a ton of room, not a ton at all..............................

The diagonal that holds up the steps was in the way and had to be removed to install the battery. Which obviously is why I made it this way for theft protection, YEA THATS THE TICKET, DOH!

These last 2 pics show the 4 1/2 inch grade 8 bolts with grade 8 washers and nylocs to make sure everything stays where it belongs.

Now all that is left is for me to do a fuel filter change and maybe an oil change. The previous owner said he had just done one.

Looks neat and a smart place for battery, but if that ground cable don't cause trouble there I would be surprised. Run it to the chassis of tractor or better yet under one of the starter mounting bolts.

A dual battery setup is only as good as the worst cell, or the worst connection. I always change over to a single big battery.

That parts tractor looks to be wanting a 263 combine engine! Don't put a 300 Ford in it, they are a big bore short stroke engine, no bottom end torque.

Actually the 300 ford is a 4x4 bore and stroke.

The ground can be easily moved if necessary but I ground all my race cars this way and don't have any problems.

And I have several gallons of the safety orange paint. But it sticks better to a light coat of rust.

I agree on the ground cable.  You won't keep the ground wire tight on that bolt--not a solid mounting.  You need to run it to a solid steel chassis point---One of the 4 bolts holding the battery box frame on right above the ground terminal would be better.

Changed the fuel filters and I am not surprised that the tractor was down on power.

The previous person who serviced the tractor had put 2 secondary filters in and not a primary and secondary. Also the diesel that came out of the canisters was almost black. The whole change only took about 20 minutes from running to running. Cleaned everything spotless and bolted it all back up with no leaks or problems.
