    Who makes a good 14 L 16.1 4 rib front tractor tire

    I'm confused on what you posted here. Boots?

    Everything has. The dealer we deal with showed us on the computer what the retailer price they pay and their markup was only another $10. The Firestones were $100 more than that. (Not that that was a option)

    Hows planting goin

    We got all our corn in early part of the month. Soybeans however have been a real drag however. The last 2 weeks around here we have had 5 inches of rain. We plant about a day and a half then it rains and we sit the rest of the week. We have about little over a 100 acres left to plant not counting replanting anything. There is 2 places I doubt we get planted. One on my place where the #/\\&£_% foundry sand with that oil in it that the neighbors had dumped on their farm years ago allows the water to run down hill to me. It wasn't a problem until it came out of CRP 13 or 14 years ago and went into crop production. I'll lose a couple of acres there. The other is 4 acres on another chunk of rented ground. it's a lake right now. Hopefully we can start planting again tomorrow. 2 days other than replanting will finish us up. Then it' right to 1st cutting hay and sidressing anhydrous on corn. A Friend of both my brother and me sent this meme to describe the planting season around here the last 2 weeks

    Matt, you're partially right, however that's only half the problem. If that rubber fuel line that went to the supply pump was hooked to the suction fuel line and by some miracle it did pump fuel, there is one minor problem. See the picture that I put a red X on. That steel line that has been cut off is the fuel supply line from the fuel filter to the injection pump. With it being cut off that fuel is going on the ground, not into the injector pump Stuart, what is hooked to the front fitting on the injector pump like I showed you above? My gut is telling me that that line is somehow jerry rigged directly to the supply line to the fuel tank. The supply pump and filters have been completely bypassed 😲. The part I haven't figured out is the return line off of the injectors. It is supposed to empty into the fuel filters and start the cycle over again until it is burned. Where is that return fuel going? The filters will only hold so much before it starts running out of all the cut lines.

    I'm going to post some pictures of how the fuel system is supposed to be set up and run. The first picture is the suction side coming out of the fuel tank. It has a thumb screw for a shutoff valve inside to turn the fuel off going to the primer/supply pump. The second picture is how the supply is supposed to run. As you see it comes out from under the cab, through the inline fuel filter, to the bottom side of the primer/supply pump. When the engine is running the supply pump is following a lobe on the camshaft, the inards going up and down, pulling fuel from the fuel tank and pumping it up to your fuel filters. I highlighted the path the fuel takes in red. The third picture is of the supply line coming off of the fuel filter base that goes to the injection pump. On your tractor this is the steel line that has been cut. The fuel supply again highlighted in red comes from the fuel filter base, through the steel line to the fuel supply port in front of the fuel injection pump. The 4th picture is of the other end of the supply line pictured above where it goes into the injection pump to supply fuel to the injection pump and subsequent fuel injectors. Again highlighted in red. The fifth picture is of both the fuel supply lines going to 2 of the fuel injectors on the engine. The red lines are the the fuel supply going into the injectors. The blue lines running parallel to the injectors is the fuel return line. It runs parallel from injector to injector across the top of the engine. The 6th picture is where the injector fuel return line returns back to the fuel filter base to go back through the system to eventually be burned. The last picture is of where the fuel return line leaves the injection pump and returns to the fuel tank via the second fuel line going to the tank. Again it's highlighted in blue. Hopefully this helps

    That's to bad. When not jerry rigged to the ninth degree and maintained right the entire Magnum line of tractors is a great line of tractors.

    Your not kidding. It took more work to screw it up like that then it did to fix it properly. As I said whoever did this to this poor tractor should never be allowed anywhere near a piece of machinery again.

    It's crossfire.

    I warned him about that but his Dad is kinda attached to the tractor. It is the only piece of farm equipment they have left from when my buddy's Grandpa and his dad were still farming. Everything else except the land was sold in the 80's to pay his sisters off when their dad died and they wanted their money. It ended his farming career. For his dad that tractor is a link to that past. He's really doing it to please his dad.

    Old Ratchet repair kits

    We started the thankless task of cleaning out my Grandparents house because there is no possibility of my Grandma ever coming home again, that and there is a ton of stuff that belonged to Grandpa that needs to be gone through. (He'll be dead 4 years at the end of July ) He had a personal supply of tools and junk in a cabinet on the back porch just for around the house separate from the tools for the farm. Being a man that grew up during the Great Depression he hardly ever threw anything out. While going through his tools I came across a ratchet handle( the one pictured here ) with the inards missing. It is a POWR-KRAFT which I know was sold by Montgomery Wards back in the day. Obviously the warranty is void now. However I know these tools were produced by another company then sold under the POWR-KRAFT name. If it is a company that produced tools under other better known names maybe a repair kit can be obtained. I know that this is a long shot and if nothing is available it's no big deal. Really I just wanted to see if I could fix it just for giggles. If I can't, into the junk pile it will go
  11. A buddy of mine has a 1650 Oliver diesel that looks like we're going to have to tear into the engine. While running the engine has developed a miss, is smoking blue smoke and is slobbering oil out of the exhaust like crazy. Compression check shows none on cylinder 2 so it looks like he wants my help tearing into it. I'm looking for a good tear down and rebuild manual for one with the specs I need. If anyone has any sources it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Well, like I said that is a coolant line going to the heater core in the roof of the cab. NO fuel should be in it. Just antifreeze and water. I'll get you some pictures of how the diesel fuel system is supposed to run. The more I look at the pictures the more I'm beginning to think it is a hacked up mess. I'm not trying to depress you but I think you have your work cut out for you. These are great tractors but unfortunately from what I gather you bought this tractor recently. Well whoever worked on this tractor before should not be working on anything over a bicycle as they have butchered the poor thing.

    Just to make sure we are talking the same line. Are we talking about the rubber house that again has the broken tabs that goes into the side of the engine block and not the steel line right above it?

    No, there should not be any fuel in that coolant line. If you do you have real problems. It's just your engine water.
