    2674 not making air.

    Thanks. I'm surprised nobody has one in stock.

    It's an EL13040X pump. Where are you getting that price? NAPA wants $350 plus shipping from MO. IH wanted $550.

    Update. One piston goes up and down, the other just stays up. Now pricing rebuilt compressors.

    Got the parts today, and no barium grease. Not sure where to get that. Head is off, I'll work on getting everything apart and cleaned.

    No, don`t want to die today

    I'm surprised that was never in a Bond film.

    Let's talk skidsteer mini excavators etc.

    I'll ask my mother how many. It was in the 20s, I'm sure of that. The 35 used to eat them, also. The chain cases would always have water in them.

    We ran Case for 40 years. I remember when we got a new 1835 around 1980 or so. We put 10,000 on it. Had a 35B then a 45C. The 45C had been abused. Went to Gehl after that one, a 5640, now an R190. Put 25 or so wheel bearing kits in the 45C. The 35s were pretty handy for their size. Best visibility and could still load the feed wagons.

    1993 4700 7.3 bleeding fuel system.

    Thanks. I didn't end up being the one to get it running. There was over an inch of ice in the tank. We think it was a farewell gift from an employee that went a bit nuts last year. Drained system and I guess it started up well.

    Thanks. I'll look into getting the kit before I pull the head off.

    I don't think so. The left one is stuck down, and I can't get it to come back up. I suspect that one's been down for some time, as the truck doesn't make air very fast. I think the other one has just gotten sticky recently, maybe because of the cold. I've recently become the person keeping an eye on this equipment. I'm going to get this back into proper working order while it's apart. I may not be able to fix all the broken stuff, but I'm going to tackle every problem that comes along. I'll know more tomorrow. Thanks.

    As much as I like Cummins and IH engines, the Detroits deserve a huge amount of respect. If they start, they pretty much do their job, smoke and oil leaks aside. That creep was just looking for clicks to monetize his channel. A friend of mine was in the Navy in the late'60's. The Mauna Loa had four 8-268 gensets to run the ship and the cargo winches. The Nipmuk, a tug, had four 12v278s for propulsion. He liked to point out that, at the time, each piston had almost as much displacement as a small block V8. (The Mauna Loa had two 3100 hp, 9 cylinder Nordbergs for propulsion) I don't know if the Detroit legacy lives on in the EMD engines. I know CAT owns EMD.

    There does appear to be an issue with stuck valves. I need to pull the head, but didn't have any plugs for the coolant lines. You can see the tops of the valve stems in the one picture. The left one is stuck. The valve stems are in the top of the head just in front of the outlet air fitting. It's a two cylinder compressor. I don't know the make, it has a Like-Nu tag on it, so it's a rebuild.

    Thank you for the replies. I'm not sure who made the compressor, but it does have the inlet hose that comes down from the engine air intake. It goes into the left side of the comp head, and there is a little line from an alcohol tank that goes in there, too. After thinking about it all afternoon, I've decided there must be some sort of valve on the intake side that is not closing, as there is no air coming out anywhere when I take the lines off. 65806, your comment confirms my suspicions. As the truck has been working up until this week, im hoping a little lube will do the trick. Again, thanks.

    Parked the truck last week, was working fine. Now it won't make any air pressure. Changed governor, no effect. Compressor gets up to water temp of engine, so I don't think it's got any ice in it. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks. It's on an NTC350.

    First, and last, video I watch from that cluck. May he contract violent and chronic flatulence.
