  1. Coulters were removed at some point over the years, i have plows that had coulters for 75 years and they dont have any wear marks in the beams.

    When you rebuilt carb did you set the air plate to the proper gap? Should be just a tick under 1/8" opening. Is the Mag wired properly? They are counterclockwise rotation magnetos used on diesels.
  3. M and super m are specific mount, super mta-560 are a completely different mount and do not interchange. We have a extra set of M/SM mounts we would sell or trade for smta-560, 544, 706, or 666 mounts.
  4. Replace the distillate manifold with a gas or lp manifold
  5. In search of parts for a 234, need extension panels for front center snoot, tractor mounts and a few other odds and ends. Any help or leads is appreciated.
  6. I sent you a private message regarding planter. I would possibly interested in buying it. Jim.
  7. Mike is a close friend, he was my first call lol
  8. I have a hm110/hm111 rear mounted planter, i am in need of a few parts to complete mine like to brackets for mounting and row markers. Does anyone know of a parts planter or could provide detailed photos of a complete planter for reference. Thanks Jim
  9. The decompression lever is correct, forward gas rear to diesel. I have 5 mds and they are all that way, the manual was a misprint. Your issue is the friction disc in the cross shaft housing are cruddy and need to be disassembled and cleaned.
  10. Ih mounted and pull type pickers
  11. A sweet corn picker is a typical picker without a husking bed, the #24 and 34hm series pickers are getting extremely hard to find in usable condition and parts availability is scarce. Your cheapest and most efficient source would be to find a new idea mounted picker with just a hopper or just remove the husking rolls. If you are on facebook there is a really good group dedicated solely to IH pickers and a group of guys with great knowledge of them.
  12. You are correct, the md-early 400 felt seal requires the oil grooves on the crank and it also uses different upper and lower plates. The 2 peice lip seal uses a smooth crank. I personally prefer to not half*** something.
  13. Bates is suppose to be trying to get seals made. Check with them. Last year cam bearing finally got back on the market for the diesels. It takes time to get stuff made unfortunately and finding manufacturers to make the stuff can be a challenge.
  14. If the starting vales dont open fully it wont run on gas properly, if they dont close fully then it wont run on diesel. The opening and closing of starting valves is controlled by linkage behind carburetor, all that is set to tolerances set with a feeler gauge. If you start adjusting things or someone else has this will csuse problems. Also the valves can stick from setting and build up. Its hard to fully under stand this till you have seen the bottom of the head. The first pic is before valves were installed. The small round hole below is the starting valve, the 2 large are self explained, the small elongated hole above is for the injector. In the assembled long block the shiney round cups setting between the edge of head (spark plug side) and int/exh valves is the starting valve. The final pic is the latch and control arm that must be within tolerance to properly open and close starting valves and butterflys in manifold.
  15. The starting valves are pushed down to open which is how gas gets into the cylinders to run on gas. If the starting valves arent opening properly thats why you not getting vaccum to draw fuel. The valves must close completely for it to build compression to run on diesel. If a valve hangs open then it wont have enough compression to run or it will miss on that cylinder. Hopefully your friend has experience working on a gas start diesel, the i worked for IH for 30 years means absolutely nothing if you have never worked on these engines before. Once you get it running you better take darn good care of it, its not hard to drop 6 grand or more in overhauling one of them. Good luck.
