    Just a thought on the fuel level, my 6.5 was doing that when we got it, running out at 1/3 tank and starting hard, I believe it would siphon feed from the tank to the level of the fuel line and lift pump in the frame rail, it seemed to be able to pull from the injector pump from there. When the fuel level got down too it the inj pump couldnt do it anymore, she’d die. The lift pump worked by jumping the relay, but wasn’t working when running. I assume it was the relay on the oil pressure switch but I did it along with the lift pump so I really don’t know. Solved the problem anyway. I know they are 2 different animals , but food for thought.
  3. I am hoping with the vast knowledge and experience of everyone frequenting this forum, someone can help me learn some answers to questions about a milk can I have. It all starts way back in the early '50's, my parents dairy farm shipped milk to the local dairy in cans. I seem to recall we had about a dozen cans, our tag number was "15", this was painted on the side and lid of each can in red letters. The cans of milk were cooled in a "water spray" cooler from DeLaval, it was green in colour. Not many pictures of that time but I do have this one of myself bringing empty cans back in from the roadside during a snowy winter day. Picture quality is not the best but cans are visible on the sleigh behind me. Based on my size there I suspect this was 1956 or 1957. In 1961 we installed a bulk tank and cans were a thing of the past. My mother, in her wisdom, wanted to keep one can as a souvenir. In later years (1980's) when she moved from the farm to an apartment, the can was getting rusty. She had the can painted flat black by an auto body shop and used it as a decoration. I still have that can today: I was cleaning the can up the other day and was paying particular attention to the brass tag on the top side (shoulder) of the can: Some online research tells me that the company Cherry Burrell still exists today. It is now Waukesha Cherry Burrell, a division of SPX FLOW. But I cannot find any historical information about the company during the time this milk can was probably manufactured, which I suspect would be late 40's. It seems there was a Canadian division, so was it manufactured here in Canada or in the US? And, what does the O-R-O-T-H stand for in the logo? Also of interest is the deer in the logo....somewhat similar to that other tractor brand . If someone can help me learn a bit more about the history of this milk can it would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Wes
  4. I've always wanted one of those red cub cadets. My dad always had cubs growing up. Let my brother scrap a bunch he had and regrets it now. I've got some older Allis mowers but I'm hoping to get one of those red Cubs for our mowing. Though recently I bought a large Craftsman by brother in law had given up on (told him it was a $15 fuel pump but he didn't want to mess with it.) Anyhow he always takes the hoods off and I've been thinking of bending up a 60 series like hood for it. Neither here nor there I suppose, other than to say I like your cubs.
  5. I think it might be a match? One I remember from the 1480 we made a mower from was splined all the way. Same thing with the old 203 combine that parted out

    Call Ag Express and ask. Only source I can think of.
  8. ihc 4186 pto couplers wanted. front 403910r1 greaseable & has a shear pin. rear 403909r2 greaseable. does anyone know if pn 184341C2, 184341C1 for combine drive axle will work ? it has 12 splines, 3 inches long, greaseable, drilled hole for shear pin but i dont know if splined only on one side ?
  9. My 1066 seems to like to spit coolant out when slowing the engine down while working it and it gets a bit warm. I had the radiator out last winter for a cleaning but it still gets to 3/4 scale on the temp gauge when it's warm out on the field cultivator. I took the radiator cap off and tested it with my pressure tester, it opens at about 9 psi and then drops off to 7 and holds it. I have a new one and it tests at about 13 psi. On the cap it says 0.9 bar which converts to 13 psi. The old cap says .75 bar which is 10 psi. I guess it wouldn't hurt to have the heavier cap on it.
  10. I went through this on a 656 a few years back. I did come up with sleeves and pistons from CaseIH but they were pricey at the time. I'd bet they're no longer available.
  11. With all the rainy days unfit for planting, guys are restless and agitated........cabin fever.....
  12. BS'ed just now with "Sir Ralfus". He'd wanted to know how to reinstate hisself on Avsig, I forwarded his message to Mike. best, randy
  13. Yes there were three sizes. Due to bore distortion by the time they needed overhaul we always ordered the largest and honed to fit. At the end IH was only furnishing the middle size. Any we couldn't fit with that got a repair sleeve.
  14. When did they stop using Leeches to cleans the spirits and go to this ? Looks like it would take way too much time this way.
  15. The 291 engines had a bore classification for the cylinders. They do take skill to overhaul correctly. Dad's 706 has a pulled sleeve after 50 hours of use. Experienced IH mechanic too. Still working through that mess............

    If you happen to need a new glow plug harness, the ones for the power stroke circa 2003 I think have the same size connector to fit on idi glow plugs, as the idi harness is no longer available or if you find it its big money. I bought left and right harness off ebay for like 20 bucks. Just cut the rectangle connector off the end of each and soldered on an eyelet to screw on the controller.
  18. I would think Morphine.....Course he would probably want Fentanyl or something....

    Wife's uncle Gene had an onsite heavy equipment repair service. Gene did some work for a Twin Cities based company when they were in the area years ago. They like his service and his prices so he became the fist guy they would call in when there was a problem their people couldn't handle. He still tells of getting called out, minimum 6 hours in just travel time for a semi tractor that wouldn't start. Older one that had a manual valve on the floor to switch from left and right fuel tanks. Had a switch on the dash for the gauge. He says he got down there got in the cab, flipped the switch to check to see if either tank showed fuel. On tank showed fuel the other empty. He then reached down and found the manual valve set to the empty tank. Switched tanks, bled the system and that was it. Guess the owner was mad but not at Gene! Rick
  20. Some corn I planted on I believe the 19th of April. Actually looks pretty good, was worried about germination when it turned off cold for so long.

    IDI's are pretty easy, fuel, air and compression ( and glow plugs...) they pretty much got to run. I drove a 1990 F Super Duty IDI for a few hundred thousand miles, when running on the front tank that dang gauge would get a little below a quarter and that was it. The gauge when on the rear tank would go all the way down. Didn't he have dual tanks for inflight refueling? Or,.... not that it ever happened to me..... was it empty too?
  22. Must be the little flipper was tipped wrong and missed the spring seat.
  23. No, my friend came along and told me I was stupid, spent a half hour on it, got it apart, put it back together but now it won’t ****, I haven’t had time to get back to it.

    I would think that will be one of the easier water pumps you change nowadays.
  25. You could test your light switch with a volt/ohm meter. As you click it thru the different postions there should be continuity from power terminal and other terminals ex first click usually driving lights low beam and flashing lights, 2nd high beamand flashing lights, 3rd flood lights and and driving lights on low i believe...
  26. OK this statement is false. I knew that late production 656s with D282 were heavy press fit. I could not remember if it happened to the C263 or not. I finally did the math on Pirlbecks specs on the 263 flange and aparently it did
  27. 18 years ago I replaced the sleeves in the early 706 gas it was 263 to 291 conversion I wrote the number down in my book 530948R2 , it appears that sleeve is no longer available through Case IH may be an aftermarket supply would have something
