  1. Thanks for all the replies.......yes the bolts are coming loose and then the pan starts to leak. I know what you mean rustred.....it isn't making sense.......we just haven't found the right tree yet. We have had 2 different mechanics locally try to get it........they haven't succeeded, so we are back to trying to figure it out ourselves. I haven't explored anything on the other end.......but that is something we will look into.
  2. They seem to all work loose, although the front are normally more loose than the rear. Then usually starts leaking from the front of the pan........had a local shop tell us the cork gasket is the problem. I can understand that to a point. Haven't been able to find a rubber pan gasket yet. Plan on tearing into it yet today or Monday. We found a balancer..........plan on swapping and at least we can rule that out. Thanks for the replies!
  3. Have bean having this issue with our 756 gasser. Starting last summer we haven't been able to keep the oil pan bolts tight/keep the gasket from leaking. Have talked with a couple forum members and had some good ideas given.......am wondering if anyone else has had this issue. We are on our 5th try right now........and it started leaking again yesterday......bolts are loose again. We can tighten them in the morning and by evening (front mount cultivator tractor) they are loose again. Have cleaned out the bolt holes, tried new bolts and lock washers, loctite, made sure pan lip is true and straight, inspected pan for cracks/deformities. Am thinking maybe dampener pulley is going bad.........at least I think that's next on the list to try. Grandpa bought this tractor new and was never an issue until last year. Any ideas/help would be appreciated!
  4. Here's a link to the post when we re-built it.
  5. I don't know about blade size for that disc.........but I would second the motion that earth metal blades are worth it. We re-bladed our 496 a couple years ago with earth metal blades. I don't remember details of price other than we bought at our dealer's spring open house and the price was just as reasonable as anywhere else we could have bought. Have always had earth metal since I can remember, and have never had an issue with them.
  6. A little history..... https://www.aaanderson.com/about
  7. Forgot to post pics of the finished product last spring.
  8. Bitty........I'm all for that idea........or maybe a nice 6788.........or as long as I'm dreaming how bout a 7488?? I would be fine with any or all of them:) Troy.......I commented to the parts guy when I picked up the blades and some other parts that pretty soon I would have an old disk for the price of a new one........he assured me we were a ways off yet!!
  9. Nice work.........I love seeing those implements restored to new condition......actually probably better than new.
  10. I posted on the General Forum looking for advice on getting the gangs tightened. We started with the rear gangs first, and all four of them were kind of a bugger to get tightened up. We ended up finally getting them, but they took a lot more effort than the front gangs...........suppose by the time we did the fronts we were getting some experience under our belts:). We got the main frame painted and have the gangs ready to hang. Will get some decals coming and get them on, along with the wing wheels painted. Might (hopefully) end up getting a chance to use it before that happens.
  11. We dropped all the gangs off and stuck them in the shop and worked on new blades and bearings as time allowed. The correct police will probably get me.......its an IH disk, but I like the IH aluminum paint on the wheels instead of the white. I have the main frame wheels painted, but still need to get the wing wheels done.
  12. Thought I would post some pics of this year's winter project since winter is still hanging on. Our 496 was in need of quite a bit of TLC, so we went at it. We still aren't quite finished, but here are some pics of the progress to date. First pic is from last spring......forgot to take a pic of it before we ripped it apart this winter. I could still make out the earth metal stamp on most of the blades......some of them were in pretty tough shape. None of them were broke, but were getting thin and starting to ripple and roll the edges.
  13. I don't know about this one.......there wasn't one with it when we bought it. We do have the rear section on our 2 row cultivators for our Super C's, but I don't remember ever using it.
  14. Thanks......looks like you have a nice one to start with......I always liked the wide front on those tractors.
