  1. Every tractor at the pulls has one within 12" of the carburetor
  2. I am using one backwards (vacuum on the outside instead of the inside) inside of the 450 oil bath housing . I like the oil bath but when the starter doesn't wheel it over good enough it rotates backwards a little bit. This pukes a little oil in the glass precleaner jar all over the 1/64 JD 720 inside of the jar. This is going to run maybe long enough to burn 20 gallon of fuel per year. Hoping this will filtrate well enough.
  3. Because of the stress of the rod caps and bearing caps I think locks are necessary for that application. They aren't big bolts to start with. All it takes is the bolt to stretch over time and it will be loose and then loosen more then a windowed block soon follows. An engine that originally had bolts torqued are designed to be used that way
  4. @TP from Central PA has a neighbor who supposedly put a 4 spreed in a 1586 although with the HP claims he said it might not be a four speed. It was indicated to divide by two and subtract 20 to get a closer HP estimate
  5. I would definitely use red lock tire if not using a mechanical lock and be sure threads are dry and clean
  6. Yup practice and I need to add a 100 lb weight when he gets on to level the playing field. He was less than a foot in 9000 from my pull
  7. My 13 year old. His first two times hooking to a sled . I hooked up three times, third was exhibition unlimited speed. I will try 3rd gear next time I do that, tried 4th and only made it so-so . The V8s did better by far . Lol I out pulled George by a foot or something like that
  8. How far is the show at Center Hall? I have not been able to go but I thought it sounded good sized
  9. Hopefully they are good enough for a pulling tractor. I gutted my 450 air cleaner housing to install a K&N out of view. It still has the glass bowl precleaner this way and it's out of any rain
  10. It was nice meeting you and your family. Glad to see you could enjoy it longer than last years show. It was 9:26 when I pulled the first time
  11. Definitely did better than I thought I would. 8+9000 first places . I believe that I should retire now while I'm in a winning streak . That one is only by 3/4 a foot on the next closest guy
  12. I say that be easier to put a twisted sister sticker on than untwist

    Rare BS 1066

    I will try to remember to look at the side shields from our early black stripe 1566 . We replaced them for pin hole reasons at the bottom edge. New ones are not louvered but I think they were when we got it

    450 TA

    Found some of the problem . I should have parts as we got a parts 400 for this reason and I also got two rears just in case (400+450)
  15. Usually I spend around 400+ Maybe I need to get it to exactly$450 ?
