Started My 806 L.P. restoration

Recommended Posts

A good day in shop today 1/20/16.

We started by having to swap out rims in the 300U that we are trying to finish. New rims were miss matched and holes on rails of power adjust rims were to far apart to secure with clamps. So had to dismount tires changed into original used rims found at local salvage yard . then remount tires and mount rear weights. Only need decals ,machined pto. handle because original was rolling key . and emblem guy is refurbishing power steering plate that goes on steering wheel nut.

We removed engine from 806 l.p. ,stripped her down readied for machine shop and got it to machine shop just before closing.

Few pic's

Block ,sleeves, crank looked pretty good.

It had 4 original I.H. pistons & Two newer aftermarket pistons.

Head, three cylinders looked good & three looked like they have been having water.

Lifters had pitting and rockers were wore beyond surfacing , it looks, Cam looked okay.

Flywheel looks like its been surfaced more then once so they will mike and see if I need replace. It does not appear to have any cracks.

Good shop day today! 1/27/16 . Stripped down donor axle for machine shop to remove and re-do pivot pin and to pull axle knees off of center tube.

Took two pallets of parts to blaster, axle parts ,side rails , l.p. tank and many more.

Spent hours washing parts and separating bolts for electrolysis process Then Zinc plate black.

Took pictures but Picasa is not responding. ( heaven knows what I did wrong)

We are starting to move forward on this long process.

No word from machine shop on engine ,So I take that as no news is good news.

Started my list for parts.

Here in the Midwest we have a thing called a knipco heater. I have gotten them loose by putting a 150000 but heater on each side, a come along drawn tight to the rear axle. Set the heaters about 12 inches from the axle and let her cook. Usually after about 4 hours the come along will get loose. Just keep tension on the cable and it will break loose. Btw, axle ha s to be mounted to tractor. This method has never failed me. Shoot, in CA, JUST LET IT SET IN THE SUN FOR A DAY!!! Lol.

Yeah ,I am really not sure what a Knipco heater is. But we can fry eggs on side walk in summer.lol.

The front Axle , My friend Wayne, took his 856 axle to blacksmith etc to pull knees apart they could not with out beating to heck out of it so the last guy he took it to said ,"Take it home and soak in Diesel" So Wayne being a old dairyman had and old cow water trough laying around so he filled it with diesel left axle in two weeks. Wayne was flabbergasted when he pulled it out, the axles started moving with very little effort.

So perhaps we need to be on lookout for old cattle water troughs lol.

Gears look brand new so far no signs of gear grinding either.

Tractor does not look like its been repaired before but gears look like they were just installed.

Couldn't leave well enough alone could you! Looks nice though. Would it be too much to use a chrome clamp like before? With chrome flipper/cap...

Hey Troy!

Like some one said on this forum some time back , "I HAVE TO TONYFY IT." Been doing few things that I think will enhance it hopefully.

This is fun & easy because Danny did the hard part now I get the fun part.

I'll post when I get more things done to it.

1= I had a PTO screw on shield made & Cermakoted.

2= I am having the parts painted for the HYD. Clutch assist that's going on her.

3= I found a original Cat 3 top link , Got the screw ends Cermikoted & waiting on powder coated center

4= Had to put my Allied Equipment Dealer decal on her.

5= Would like to Cermikote the Manifold gray but not in mood at this point to remove manifold

6= Added K&m steps

7= have a few items to get my way but it'll get done little by little. Don't want it all at once.

As for your question of black cap & clamp , I think it makes it cleaner looking and since the exhaust makes the cap half black anyway. lol.

Tony

Found this old rusty Pin blasted it & cermikoted.

Pto screw on shield & top link ends getting done

Productive shop day today!3/2/16 .

Bob & I removed rear wheel weights ,wheels & rims , Removed top deck to expose differential.

I think I am going to dodge the bullet here, all gears look fantastic, including brake bull pinions. First tractor I've done that I have not had to replace brake pinions.

Little dirt on bottom of case otherwise clean . We'll wash with siphon gun and diesel. Replace seals.

I do want to remove clutch pivot shaft to get new or rebuild to end clutch peddle side play . will be doing that on brake peddles also.

Few update pictures

Tony

Pinion gears & bearings show no distress.

806 is pretty shrunk down , still need to remove center section for T.A. replacement. I have parts scattered many places have to keep a journal. parts at engine machine shop, others at regular machine shop for bushings etc, couple pallets of parts at blaster, couple pallets of parts at painter to get started.

Everything is dismantled blasted separately, looked over repaired, then sent to painter.

Many of you have asked,on forum, how to clean old bolts, I purchased this bolt vibrator and we place a section of bolts at a time with solvent & their cleaner & beads and let them vibrate about 5 hours and they come out pretty nice. We used it on the last tractor we did ,saved lot of effort.

Next week remove PTO , & torsion bar , Center section

Engine still going through process at machine shop .Good news no cracks block or head. Need a better flywheel original been surfaced to many times it appears.

The washer looks like a rock tumbler. Wonder if one of them would work? In the machine shop I worked at we tossed little parts in them to deburr them. Funny, I didn't even notice the KnM steps at the show. They blend in so well and so many have them it doesn't register anymore! That 14 will sure be clean, really fix up the old owners shoddy work....... :):)

Ha!
