  1. Old bronco!!!!! You kidding me?? That year was just yesterday๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€. I have a 79, a bit like that I've had since 82. It's a bit off stock now however, riding on 44's , stroked 460, 6 puck bronze clutch, posi on both ends. Running 5:36 gears. Everytime I get in it, I'm back in high school all over again. Oh, an yes she does make that bronco look good๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€
  2. Wow, great find. Should be a beast to have running
  3. Funny how some people are not satisfied till they get factory parts. So if it's factory parts for 40 plus year old tractors you look for with your micrometer, go to CIH and pay their price, see what you get, and be happy. Bet it's not CIH that's making it now a days though. Parts new or older are all about sourcing out, repainting or having painted your color and sold as "original" good luck
  4. My td9 has the 350 motor as it should. Starter has solenoid on top, is it possible they clocked the nose piece on the starter quarter turn? Can't remember when I rebuilt the motor if they starter had 2 or 4 bolts holding it together Mark
  5. It's economics, nothing is getting cheaper. Everyone up the pipeline wants to make more than the year before. Be nice as a farmer/rancher to name your price as apposed to being told what you get!!! As a small cattle biz, if I can't make money on the beef I raise, it's given to family. Same as the lumber off our property, if it's not a good price at the Mill, which it usually never is, it's cut for firewood. At this point, I burn cedar as firewood as the price might be right, but when "they" scale the logs, it's not true. I will burn it first. My 2 cents
  6. Nothing near as big as alot if these stories, but was outside working, storm rolled in, heavily treed area, not much worry of getting hit, big clash, lightning same time, kids were in the house. Next thing I new "all" the underground sprinklers were on. Must have charged the ground enough to activate all the valves. Realized at that point it was a close hit. Found a big fir in the yard, burnt strip in the bark, top to bottom
  7. An easy way to check points is to take cap off, to the point you can see the points as you crank the engine. As you crank you should see spark every time they open. I have an old Massey that if this happens and I get no spark, it's the point base not grounding properly. Take the points out, sand the base and base of the distributor, install set Gap and usually works Everytime. Good luck Mark
  8. Ok, now I think we are getting somewhere. Took triangle cover off, was able to move the arm back and forth but it was a bit sluggish. Sprayed with brake clean and moved arm while doing so, moves much easier now, replaced cover and it works much much better. I did find however the compartment it's in is lubricated by motor oil. A line goes to the bottom of it right off a t at the pressure sending unit right next to it. Now I need to adjust the low idle as it will go below 600 rpm and die if I pull the lever all the way to the bottom of the run socket. Also shuts down as should now without delay. Thanks everyone for all the help and advice. This being my first big frame IH, I'm sure I will have plenty more questions. Now to fix the draft control lever. It only moves half way back Again, thanks Mark
  9. Perfect, was hoping it be something like that. I will check that out this afternoon and let you all know how that goes Thanks Mark
  10. So? With time and use might it get better? Is it immersed in diesel and.free up or separate chamber? Thanks Mark
  11. Takes a while to shut down also. Was told the tractor sat for over a year, before I received it. Runs good, starts instantly, just delayed reaction to throttle
  12. Update on the injection pump. Finally received the IH fuel line as suggested and the results are the same. Delay in throttle response. Won't idle, just dies below 1200 rpm. Had better response with the solid copper line, but also experienced the wandering low speed fluctuation as was told to happen. Here's a link to YouTube of one of the videos showing linkage/arm movement and how.long it takes to respond. It is the old hose on there in the video, but with the new one response is identical
  13. Wow, if only we had prices like that. Around our parts it ran $150 to 180 per ton 1000 lb rounds. Small squares even more. Not sure what this year will bring.
  14. Yup. After rebuilding 2 ih motors and having to go back in after the fact. Most pressure was lost at the cam bearings. Had a td8. New everything but cam bearings. Had 30 at start up, 15 after warm,. Tore down and did cam bearings, oil pressure for days and not much drop. Same I did with a 350 td9. Think I would have learned the first time huh? Mark
  15. I know. It's not what's supposed to be I'm sure. Got the idea from my td9. It's only temporary till the ih part gets here. Tried to rule out the injection pump. Thanks again for all the help. You all wouldn't believe how the hydraulic filter looked like.
