  1. Well Friday I went and picked up this gem. She run for a little then cut off and would start back. Got it home and charge the battery then the starter wouldn’t turn. So first part of the project was pulling the starter off and as you can see the collar or cover for the starter is broke. So I’m taking the starter to a local shop early in the morning since I’m out of school for 2 weeks due to this coronavirus. The place I bought it from has put a new alternator on it so don’t have to worry about that. I will keep a post up when more happens. Took the carb apart yesterday and it’s really dirty from sitting with this ethanol gas so I’m going to get a rebuild kit for it tomorrow too.

  5. If you followed my other topics this one is logically in-line, here comes another orchard topic. Brother and I purchased this 1949 O4 last fall from the original farm/owners grand children. We have been friends with the family as long as I can remember. I'm not going call this a restoration thread yet as we are mainly mechanically assessing and fixing first. We are in no rush on this project and anticipate this one taking several years. Just from assessing its condition we know it is extremely well used and has performed more than it's fair share of work in it's lifetime. The tractor was missing the operator cowling and the side curtains. We knew of a set of side curtains for sale some what locally and purchased them right after we brought the tractor home. A few weeks later I located a cowling. Kind of cart before the horse but had to jump on the hard to find parts as they were available. Any chance of getting it running was quickly squashed as a hole in the manifold allowed water to destroy two intake valve seats, stuck several valves and 4 of 8 push rods were mangled. But, the motor was not seized and the cylinders look as if the were run yesterday. After taking off the rear wheels and the belt pulley unit we quickly found out any and all bearings in this transmission were history. Mice also did a number on the clutch completely filling the bell housing with a nest.

  6. Well, it’s been a long time coming. Spent most of the winter working on this tractor in the shop. I found this 1961 for sale not running and decided to take a chance. It was in fair shape and my friend Chuck and I had it running by the time we offloaded it (carb was gunked up). Engine compression tested good, but it leaked oil from everywhere so a new set of seals was in order. I went ahead and ran her for the fall hay season until the last of the clutch started to fail and then just parked it. Slowly I ordered parts and disassembled the 460 into components and started my rebuild. Here are some photos of the process, hope you enjoy! ?

  7. For odor, get the car ionizer. Local sales guy uses them for his cars.

  8. could be a bad water pump that cause belt to jump off, maybe bad idler, bad bearing in the alternator, a few things could cause that, a/c compressor could be locked up but that usually burns belt up ( ask me how i know ) but maybe the fellas that were driving it wanted a newer truck or were on a binge at teh local pub and she made funny noises when the belt jumped off and told their boss SHEs BLOWN!!!! as far as teh hog smells goes, you can use a lot of things like baking soda, they make deodorizers with baking soda/powders to sprinkle in the carpet for starters after you have washed the grime out first - you can use some warm bleach water to help wtih some of that , they make absorbing cans now or you can get some old school charcoal brickettes and put them in a pan and slide under teh seat, they will absorb a TON of odor and neutralize it, you can put them in a pan under/behind the seat or ziplock with the top open to keep them from crumbling all over. biggest thing will be cleaning fabric as it gets in seat material, headliner etc.....

  9. Nice, always nice to hear. I've rebuilt a six blow before. The bottom ends are actually very well build. The heads, however have not enough head bolts per cylinder, much like the 560's 282. They can be good engines if the updated stand pipes and other high pressure oil parts are put on. The rocker arms have plastic clips that hold them on the rails that like to fail. The best thing about them is they are cheap because no one else wants them. The other thing is that it needs to get used. The soot builds up on the ring in the turbo that changes the vane geometry. If used as a truck, pulls, gets worked, instead of just tootling around, it won't give you much grief. If you just use it to go down the road and check the deer population, then you are going to have trouble with the turbo. They have potential to be great engines, it just costs about as much as a good truck to begin with.

  10. Be careful inside those "rest homes" Professor. You and I both could get lost in the crowd-------and they not let us out!!!!? I gotta get me one of those squeezebox things--------they must attract young "babes" from all of those "babes" you were posting pictures of recently!!? ***** The picture of little "Aimee" definitely looks to be a shiny face for springtime. We are seeing flowers blooming and trees budding out. Should see some corn planters in the field if we can ever catch a few dry days. ****** Sure do like that last group of Mission Mountain pictures you and Matt posted. Just showed them to Milinda as we set here eating breakfast at noon time. I am hoping Wrangler doesn't report his "ranch hand" to the horse police. Breakfast has been served late for the last few days-----but he is a loyal and faithful horse. He is always there waiting on me.? DD

  19. We finally have a rolling chassis and managed to get it done before the snow flies. Transmission reassembly was completed on Thursday night after a slight delay. When installing the left bull gear and axle I didn't pay attention and broke the bull pinion housing. No big deal, brazed it back together nicely and then proceeded to break it agin buy letting the differential bearing **** sideways during installation. New bull pinion housing arrived Thursday. Since we have a long weekend I stayed in the shop getting the back end buttoned up. Friday we mounted the new/used tires and got it off the jack stands. Next up is to get the engine out and cleaned up. All we are lacking for the engine is a gasket set, manifold, and having the head rebuilt.

  22. For now, everything will be gone through so the tractor is mechanically 100%. I have a number of extras to hang on it as well. As rough as the paint and sheet metal are, I don't intend to paint it for now. While the tractor will never be used heavily in my possession, I do intend to use it and won't have to worry about the first scratch, ding, or dent screwing up a nice paint job. As Brian can attest, this 14 has had a tough life to this point and I kind of like the idea of keeping some scars that lend to its history.

  27. Didn't expect to make this much progress this weekend. I need to finish cleaning up the axles and press on the outer bearings. Axle seals I received end up being the wrong ones, but no worries. Not too much more to go on the rear end. I must have taken the bull pinions out at least a dozen times setting the ring and pinion backlash. It was .040, got it down to .014 and i'm calling it good. Even had help from both kiddos. John was excited when we got the "big wrenches" out. PTO assembly has been refurbed with new seals and gaskets and is awaiting install. Transmission cover is torn down for cleaning and to fix the loose shifter.

  28. Still making progress, slowly. Just finished cleaning out the transmission case and preparing all the gasket surfaces. Transmission internals have been fully disassembled and put through the parts washer along with many other parts. All the bearings and seals have been measured so I can start sourcing all of them. Have a few dozen other parts in various states of disassembly and repair. One of the biggest steps has been making new clutch springs. They are actually pretty easy to make using the tooling I made. The original spring is by itself, the ones I made above it. Next task is to pick up the parts donor, if the weather dries up a bit. Brother and I were offered two H's from a friend of a friend. Price was too good to pass up so we bought both of them. One is definitely just for parts and will provide the majority of what we need. The other is complete and in nice shape so we will probably get that one serviced and up for sale. We wont be using all of the parts tractor so if anyone needs anything from an H let me know.

  29. Thanks cbfarmall, that pushrod was the worst one. So we have the engine torn down as far as we will take it for right now utill we get the rolling chassis back together. Pistons and sleeves check out good and appear to have been chaged not too long ago. Main, rod and cam bearings will be replaced. Mains and rods were in spec but are on the extreme low end. Every gasket on the engine was leaking so that will be addressed as well. Outer axle bearings are shot so the hubs have to come off. I couldn't believe how much play the axles had. One hub came off without too much trouble, the other we need to get a little more serious with. Havent gotten it off yet so we pulled the axle, tube and hub off in one piece. Finished up this past weekend getting the transmission torn down. No missing or broken teeth but there have been alot of rolling gear changes. All of the oil passages, machined and cast were blocked with old gear oil and debris. Surprise of the day was finding one of the brake drums almost cracked in half!
