  1. Plenty of people will jump on board and say welding cast is not possible, won't be strong. They "might" know more than I, but, I have welded plenty of cast, "most" have held, even an axle like yours on a 14, it's a farmer fix, meaning, if it holds, you are into it for little of nothing, if it doesn't, try again, or bite the bullet and buy new cast parts. My theory, no harm, no foul for trying Mark
  2. Td,wd 6 should be the same motors I believe, this topic was covered pretty extensively in the construction side here, "when tdc isn't tdc on a td-6. It might give you your information you are looking for, I know those cranks have 2 marks, one for setting up the injection pump, the other tdc. If I remember correctly πŸ€”. Been ages since I rebuilt my 9. Good luck Mark
  3. Just like the "mob boss" in Chicago πŸ€”, he's not telling any secrets these days πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Mark
  4. You could vent the hood and go straight up 😁 Mark
  5. They are handy, work great, hook your shop vac to the side port to keep it clear of dust as you work. Or you won't be able to see what you are blasting in there. Been there done that. Happy blasting Mark
  6. Ohhh, I so wanted to though πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  7. Looks to me that everything in there is on wheels, except for the rocking chair πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Mark
  8. And that is what the colt 45 is for, besides shooting cows. Of course πŸ€”πŸ€”
  9. Ahhh, the good old days , now around here, you have to have surgery done to pull wisdom teeth , it's becoming a racket. I still have all 4 of mine, not sure if that makes me wise or not πŸ˜‚ Mark
  10. Amazing country you get to enjoy daily. Very envious of you Mark
  11. Not trying to derail this thread, but here's what I have for shear pin holes on the flywheel. I appologize for the color. Also the slip clutch
  12. Be glad to hear how this works out for you, as I have had the same problem on a small square baler. The shear pins break all day long on the flywheel . The hole in it is egged out pretty bad as well. It's only a quarter inch bolt though. I have been using grade 5 for it Mark
  13. If it's anything like mine on my td9, much older than yours, mine only has 2 levers, cable operated controls, forward, reverse, neutral and the other was brake to stop and hold if you needed to. Release before pulling, or trying to reverse the winch. Both of my winches, on the 9 and the td8 are pto driven. The 8 however uses a brake master and slave to engage/disengage it I have the manuals for both. The 8 only has one lever. The 9 is a carco, and the 8 is a gearmatic Mark
  14. I don't think that's what he's looking for πŸ€”
  15. If only you were closer. I have a set of 6, coined, new tires, 16.5's. Don't use them anymore. Would bolt up perfectly for you, sorry Mark
  16. I know when I took my 86 tach apart, it was a matter of cleaning up all the rust an bits that stuck to the magnet, I am amazed and jealous of your abilities, and machining equipment, following along on this project has really been a treat. Plenty of machine shops I'm sure could learn from you. Or at least when asked if they will manufacture something, they just say "can't be done". Keep up the good work Mark
  17. How would you calibrate??? It's gear to gear. Cable runs off the cam, or? Are you going to remanufacture it? You have done some amazing machine work with the fordson, don't get me wrong, but freeing up a tach, utilizing what's there, is a no brainer. Not rocket science , can't wait to see the fordson run the quarter mile πŸ˜‚
  18. We can all complain, but back in the day, home loans were 12 percent, that's if you had good credit, inflation has hit, and if any of us has a crop to sell, we will be rich as things are going. Funny how we, some of the farmers complain, myself included, but at the end of the year, we made "so" much money, we find ways to spend it, like $120,000 tractors or buy more land just so we don't give a dime to the government, that we complain so much about. Then again, if you don't pay, you can't complain. Restoring multiple tractors also is a tax right off of the richer half of us, let's just clear the air here. We are all adults. Mark
  19. The weather has taken a turn for the worse it seems, time for me to try and get back home, have heard there's plenty of snow ahead of me. I will start out with 70 degree temps in the morning, end the day in Utah with 33 as a high. Next day start out with temps around 18. My trip might take more than the three days it took me to get here. My chariot awaits me Mark
  20. If not looking to satisfy the correct police, ford motor craft carbs bolt right on as well. Mine does, they are common to come by, and rebuild kits are easy to find. If memory serves me right I think it's a 2150, I could be wrong Mark
  21. Where is the tractor you speak of ???? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  22. Well, at this point it's just throwing ideas out there, when I rebuilt my 9, I had the wires setup for incorrect rotation of the distributor. In your first post you said the wires were wrong, and very possibly so. I am looking through and old manual, and it is saying there is right hand rotation mags, and left hand rotation. When you routed the wires, you are sure which direction yours is turning? I went by the manuals and what I understood, but untill I pulled the cap and watched while cranking, I was backwards. I had no fire at all on a new motor, untill I got that straightened out. You might be right, I'm just throwing out there what happened to me. Mark
  23. To each his own, but air bags are where it's at, unless you Wana mess with taking two sets of leaf springs, sandwhich them together, get longer u bolts, and put up with the ride. I did all the above on my 77 Ford, but then found I was blowing wheel bearings right and left, so now it has all those leaf springs of two trucks, and air bags riding on top a 1.5 ton dually rear axle. Point is, how crafty are you, or, how much money you have to pay someone to make your truck what it isn't ? For the money, air bags are where it's at.(my opinion ) With a load, I run mine at 120 psi. Then again, I have the on board compressor, general driving I like 45-60 psi Mark
  24. Very true the information given, there are two different timing marks on the flywheel, one for pistons, the other for ign timing. The above poster has great information on this subject Mark
