  1. I started using atf in a 7.3 international idi in an f350 about 1995. Stopped using it when I got a 7.3 powerstroke in 1997. About 2004 (iirc) the fuel economy reduced by about 50% and I tried Howes lubricator. Reduced the fuel consumption until it was better than new. Still using it in all my diesels
  2. Guy I know has one of those gas (chainsaw) powered impacts. His has a lever on it to select between 350 ft/lbs and 700. It came from a rail road company surplus sale.
  3. I think Kevin was specifically thinking about the diameter or circumference of the rear tires. If one was larger than the other the machine would turn away from the larger one.
  4. I service a fleet of trucks and I prime filters where I can. The Cat C7 they mounted the fuel filter upside down. In 2011 Cummins 6.7 in a medium duty truck they started supplying a plug for the center hole of the fuel filter and instructions on priming the filter without pouring any in the clean side.

    Gas prices

    In Aldergrove BC Canada it is presently $1.24.9 can per litre. A week ago $1.39.9.
  6. I went to New Zealand a few years ago ( north island only). The water in the toilet bowl doesn't swirl. It goes straight down in a big rush. the sinks swirl though.
  7. I belive the crank is different too, and connecting rods, as the bearings are different.
  8. I have a 41 or 42 farmall A. Was my dads. When he got it, it had the magneto and no other electrics. After a couple of years he got a starter, went to install it and there was no ring gear. it makes sense to me to use the magneto on crank start engines, but in 1950 things were starting to change for ease of operation. After he had the tractor for five years or so it would stop running when hot and not restart until quite cold. After doing some diagnostics we decided that the problem was in the coil. It would have been about 55 years old. I replaced it for him and it still runs good today.
  9. No, I have not "messed" with an upper control. Have done the re & re a few times and have read the test and adjust procedures in the manual a few times. It is complicated enough for me to send it out rather than try to talk the boss into buying all the equipment to do the job. I think it was after two times the first one was worked on we replaced it with new. That was about 12 years ago and it has just started to have an intermittent malfunction. The operator believes it is a control problem but I think that it may be the return hose is getting pinched.
  10. That seal is to keep dirt etc out. If it has been pushed out by hydraulic pressure, the main pressure seal is shot.
  11. Pins are straight. If the PO welded the pins in it was likely they were loose or he was worried that they would become loose. Make sure you have ground out all the weld holding them. If they still won’t move a bit of heat could be your friend.
  12. Track chains are interchangeable. Don’t know about rollers
  13. Where are these slave cylinders? Have worked on an 1991 6H-65PBI and also a 1999 6H- DHL 65PBI. The only thing like a slave cylinder is the pilot actuators built into the lower control valve body.
  14. Check out the King of Obsolete ‘s website. He has a lot of info about these crawlers there. Nice Scout, ‘78 ?
  15. It’s probably 170 kilometres per hour, and when they touch tires there is a slingshot effect that would have launched her car in the air and increased the speed a significant amount.
