    1586 Data Center Aggrivation

    The mechanical tach did not use the pressure switch. The first gen electronic tach did. The second gen tach with the touch keypad did not.

    1466 speed trans question

    Charlies right. The 9s and below used a ball bearing on the rear. The 10s and up used a roller bearing on the rear. All used a roller needle bearing on the front.

    886 injection pump

    The oem hose is softer than a hydraulic hose and acts as a shock absorber to take out pressure pulses caused by the charge pump. Using a hydraulic hose will also reduce horsepower. Proved it to a customer one day on the dyno. Picked up 25 hp just by putting on the correct hose on a 1066.

    DT361 rebuild

    Tool number is FES 24-7. Here is some info from a prior discussion. There are two pages out of the service manual that mention the step plate.

    DT361 rebuild

    Did you use the IH special tool step plate to install the sleeves to the correct height? If you pulled the sleeves down as far as they can go, you may have problems down the road with the flange on top of the sleeve cracking and breaking off. IH issued a service bulletin addressing this many years ago. Attached is an article explaining the proper procedure for block prep and sleeve installation. More info with pics

    Loader valve connection 886

    The 886 didn’t offer PPH hydraulics.

    Power beyond on 1086

    Some guys choose to run the return back into the supercharge line. Of course anything foreign in the return will go through the MCV Pump. The correct way is to route the return oil back into rear housing.

    Power beyond on 1086

    Oil coming off the end of the valve stack to inlet of loader valve is low pressure until you activate a spool on the loader valve then it can get as high as the system relief valve if needed. Return oil from loader valve is free flow back to sump.

    Power beyond on 1086

    Simple to do. Just unhook the MCV supercharge line on end of valve stack. Hook up your inlet hose from open center loader valve to fitting on end of valve stack. It is recommended to return oil from loader valve back to rear housing instead of back into supercharge line. This will prevent any foreign pieces from loader system going directly into the MCV pump. You just need to put a plug in the supercharge line. The MCV Pump will still draw its oil through the passageway in the speed housing just like the 66 series. Just remember to hook the supercharge line back up if you remove the loader valve. I have set up quite a few customers tractors like this over the years.

    756 german diesel clutch throw out bearing

    Can’t remember the year, but IH quit drilling the carrier for the zerk. This was done on production tractors and also the carrier sold across the counter. This tractor has obviously had the carrier replaced by the later style sometime.

    Looking for a square front axle to go on 5488

    The cylinder is bigger on the high capacity front axle so you should change the steering hand pump also. Otherwise steering is slower.

    serial number codes

    The steel plug was something the aftermarket people came up with to make sure no leak in pressure circuit could happen. The purpose of the plastic check valve was to let oil into the steering circuit via the back door to provide manual steering with a dead engine. HyCapacity used to include the steel plug with o ring in their TA kits. Plug has no effect on TA operation.

    A guide to roundabouts.

    If you think roundabouts are confusing, Google RCUT. Restricted Crossing U Turn intersection. What can possibly go wrong?

    Anyone else see this new Ford commercial?

    If you want a Big Boy statue, there are several for sale at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale!

    troubleshooting an 806 that just "gave up"

    Actually the axle housings were a sealed compartment. There were large cup plugs on the inner side of the inside axle bearings installed into the rear housing. There were also seals installed on the inner side of the bull pinions. Even though they were intended to isolate the axle housings, they would somehow fill up and leak out of the outer axle seal. If that happened you just had to remove the check level plug and drain it down. The plugs and seals can be found on the parts breakdowns.

    Differences in 2+2s?

    Yes, the mid 80s was a bad time to be a dealer trying to sell farm equipment. We had several 50 series that sat on the lot too long and had to be repainted. The hoods faded a different color than the cab. And if I remember correctly, a strike made it very difficult to get parts. We kept a new 5088 in the shop that we took parts off of just to keep customer’s machines running.

    Debating on selling the cub pulling tractor

    I went through similar circumstances also. My partner and I built a 3688 pto stock and campaigned it for 5 years winning several state championships. It came to a point where we were going to have to spend some money to get back to the top again and my job was taking up more of my time. We had somebody wanting to buy it so it was sold. He ran it for several years and sold it to pullers from Michigan. They are doing very well with it and ran at Louisville last year. We are happy that we sold it when we did. I think that you already know what you should do. It is hard to part with the machine that you have put in blood, sweat, and tears. But it will also give you great relief not having to worry about it anymore. Also it is best to sell it before it gets too outdated and no one will want it.

    Advice Hydro 84

    It is just a plunger that is spring loaded. It’s only function is to let the operator know when lever is in start position. If you move the lever too far you can feel resistance from the spring. That is when you are beginning to shut off fuel delivery. When you move to the stop position the plunger is fully depressed. The spring loaded plunger has no other function. No electrical switch or anything else.

    We sold a new one that had cab and mfd to two brothers that are now deceased. Last I knew it was sold to a rancher in northern Nebraska.

    5288 wont crank-neutral switch?

    Nope. A different switch. A micro switch with a lever and a small roller on the end of the lever. Over time the roller will no longer turn and lever will bend. Then switch will no longer work. Very important that switch is adjusted correctly when installing.

    New Magnum ?

    It is taking a lot of hp to run all the hydraulics on the current planters and seeders. I haven’t seen how much hydraulic flow these tractors will have but I would think that they will be quite a bit more than current models.

    I got the 560 home

    By looking at the position of the TA lever shown in the second picture, I think that the stop bolt that limits travel in both directions is gone. This would allow you to pull the lever too far rearward and would cause the noise you heard.

    draft arms control lever loose on 1466

    Follow the lever down to where it pivots and look towards the seat a few inches. You will see two bolts that are friction clamps for both levers. Tighten the one on the inside. Refer to item 37 in the attached file.
