  1. how does the power steering come apart I took the four 7/16 bolts out it comes out part way and stops I've got all the lines unhooked just comes to a stop
  2. almost forgot that they had a dealership in those towns if I remember right I think his name was Hans Nelson he passed away about 20 years ago was super nice guy the towns were smaller towns they also had JD dealership in Lyons that closed that is now Northeast tractor salvage
  3. what would be the best thing to do for a 1660 combine with the IH engine it needs some help would you overhaul buy a reman or buy a used engine from a salvage yard what would be the cost roughly to do each one thank you guys for any help you can give me on this how hard is it to pull the engine on this combine
  4. prayers for you and your family my dad went to the hospital and was diagnosed with heart frailer was very tough on the family but mom asked me what we should do when the doctors wanted to put him on life support. very hard decision to make but I told mom lets let dad go with dignity everybody that mom and dad were friends with still know him and was well respected in town very hard to do but days I wish dad was still here but that would have been if he was still ok life support was not wanted what dad would have wanted split some of the family up but when I look back it would have been a lot harder to see my dad laying in bed not knowing what is going on in the world

    IH radiators

    on my equipment if the radiators leak bad I just have them recored not cheap but if the first one lasted 30 to 40 years I hope the recore will last that long to most new ones are not going to last as long as the original one they are just made cheaper
  7. it is coming out the breather tube the tube comes out of the rocker arm cover or valve cover this engine ran great during harvest never got warm that is what is scaring me normally I always put everything in the shed at night because of some vandalism I had last year I left the combine in the field overnight just once now i'm scared someone did something to it
  8. what would cause a 466 to blow oil out of the breather tube after an oil change it runs fine has plenty of power I just changed oil and was filling with fuel when I noticed oil running out of the breather tube
  9. my vertical tube on my unloading auger went to heck so to get finished I just combined with it out because I could not get it to swing back in we took the horizontal auger off so we could replace the vertical tube now we got the tube in and the elbow on and it will not swing in got power to the coils you can hear the pump deadhead when you try swing it in or out it will swing in if you change the hoses around on the cylinder in the grain tank what am I overlooking

    auger tube

    has anybody tried the upright auger tube from Worthington salvage for a 1660 combine part# 192830c92 was just wondering if they fit just like oem or do you have to modify it to fit the one from case IH is 1100 dollars and Worthington is 500 dollars big price difference I just want to bolt it in and not spend a bunch of time trying to make something kinda fit
  11. is your fuel tank vent open sounds like it creates a vacuum and starves it for fuel
  12. used to work on them a lot 4-53 6v71 they would neve blow just started to leak oil 

  13. prayers sent hope everything goes good and a speedy recovery

    1660 brakes

    how good are the brakes on a 1660 combine mine have good pedal but don't hold the combine from rolling downhill they act like they don't have any disc inside if you have it in second gear and try to stop it it does not have any effect on the hydro at all not sure where I should start looking I've run it this way for a few years but now my daughter is going to combine this year because of medical issues I have and just want to make sure that it is safe for her thank you for your help
  15. I have used tempo in the liquid form works really good on spiders crickets not sure what else it kills got rid of the label safe to use around the house and pets
