  1. IH856 12V Dual Battery Help

    I think Steiner sells a stud that will screw on to your damaged one or you could use something like a Perko switch that has studs for two inputs and one output to the starter. I bought two 12 volt batteries from Tractor Supply for mu 1066 that fit in the original battery boxes. I built new cables. Each positive goes to the starter. Seperate grounds.
  2. Engine stands

    There is a thread on the Unofficial Allis forum right now that has a really good picture of a commercial diesel engine stand you may want to look at for ideas.
  3. Engine stands

    That should work. Build a plate that bolts to the block and bolt it to the plate on the engine stand. Take the four arms off. Maybe remove the wheels too. Just have help when you flip it.
  4. Engine stands

    I just read this somewhere today. Pull the head while it’s in the tractor. Get a steel 55 gallon closed end drum. Lay the block on the end of the drum. Easy access to all sides/ends. This is for the non professional guys.
  5. 1066 Boost ???

    Yes the muffler will probably burn out. Glass pack type mufflers all eventually do I guess. I am just trying for some slight, free flowing baffling. I did the same thing on an AC 7060 and liked it.
  6. Is there such a thing as a 560-era volt guage?

    I looked and could not find one.
  7. 1066 Boost ???

    Tubing was ok. Got to looking at the muffler and wondered about it. It looked old and this tractor sat out most of it's life. Peeled it off and this muffler has an obstruction in it that makes the exhaust go through the perforations. Don't know if this is a factory muffler or something else. Looks somewhat plugged to me. This morning I ordered a 3.75 to 3 inch adapter, a Dynomax 3 inch inlet/outlet bullet muffler with a 4 inch case and a stick of 4 inch exhaust tubing. Gonna weld it all together and build a straight pipe looking muffler, sorta.
  8. 856 charging problem

    If you determine that is is the regulator buy a good quality one. Good ones are not cheap.
  9. 1066 Boost ???

    Yep, open elbow. The manifold port is clear and I checked the gauge with air. Maybe that cheap plastic tubing is the issue.
  10. 1066 Boost ???

    Well I worked it pretty hard yesterday and that gauge never budged. Tractor runs fine, no unusual smoke, good power? When I get time I'll get the turbo info and post it for you guys. No telling what's on there, Gonna check my tubing too. Maybe I pinched it somehow.
  11. My new shop truck /year plus project !!

    Very, very nice.
  12. 1066 Boost ???

    Here you go.....
  13. 1066 Boost ???

    Hey if it doesn't rain tomorrow I will try that test and let you guys know.
  14. 1066 Boost ???

    What this tractor will pull is what we call a three row. It will build three rows at a time. Some guys call them hippers. The rows end up being ~60 inches wide. So six four disc gangs on a heavy toolbar. Mounted tool. It will be a good workout for it.
  15. 1066 Boost ???

    The gauge is 0-30. It's new and I tested it with shop air and it moves. Stock fuel setting as far as I know and stcok turbo.
