  1. Put the top link in the top hole on the 3 point bracket on the tractor. Will only help a little but every little bit helps. If you’re using the bottom hole and you travel with the lift all the way up and the top link has a sharp angle down. That’s your problem!!


  2. The rotary injection pumps are notorious for having the plungers stick after sitting for a period of time. When the cam in the pump comes around it pushes the plungers out and this pumps the fuel to the injectors. When the cam passes it is up to the supply pressure to force the plungers back down and fill the cavity with fuel. The plungers are machined to close tolerances and it only takes a little bit to gum them up and the supply pressure to move them is very low. EDIT: After finding the diagram I realized I described the process wrong. There is not a cam but a cam ring that forces the plungers in to do the pumping. Same principle though. I should leave the explanation to the experts like @Injpumped.

    Yes the 966 was available with a Hydro from 1971 to 1973. In 1973 the Hydro 100 with non-turbo 436 came out. The 1066 Hydro was also dropped in 1973. 

    Are you saying in 1973 the 966 Hydro and Hydro 100 were available but not the 1066 Hydro? I’m interested because I’ve got a 1973 966 Hydro.

  4. I’ve got a McCormick cx75 with the Perkins engine. You need to time the engine before you take the pump off. The pump shop will rebuild the pump and lock it. You reinstall the pump then take the lock off the pump. I took my pump off without timing the engine and it took me forever to get it timed right. Good luck.

    if its a a&i pump with a plastic impellar dont waste your time putting it on. neighbor put one on his little deere tractor 2 weeks later impeller came off tractor got hot. got pump replaced 2nd pump did same thing in a month but this time a young kid was bush hogging with it. cost him a good chunk of change after i overhauled it.

    I thought they were all plastic impellers now a days.

    i dont even use my mig im so frustrated 

    I love welding. I’ve bought many welders. But I’m a terrible welder!! One thing I’ve noticed is I have poor fore arm strength and poor stick control. With a stick welder, if the rod goes way out of the puddle from time to time it still makes an ok weld. On the mig when the gun goes out of the puddle that’s when the arc extinguishes and you get the push back and horrible bead. I have to put gloves on and use two hands to keep the wire in the puddle at all times.

  7. Sorry for hijacking the thread but I love the videos of Indians working. Notice the dirt floor that never needs to be swept. The steel toe sandals, and the auto darkening safety glasses. 🤣🤣🤣.  I do not want a tractor that these guys make!!!

  8. I saw it there. It’s a beautiful tractor. I wanted to open the door and look inside but I didn’t dare touch it without permission. Was the other 1086 yours also? While I was there another person was admiring the 1086 with the factory cab and reminiscing.  He said he remembered going to the same show years ago and seeing the new 1086 at the international tent.

    Sounds like you need the fuel additive from cummins that treats asphaltines, they are created when fuel gets too hot. 

    Yep. I went to a Cummins training class and they said its inside the injectors. Engine manufacturers have drastically increased the injection pressures to make the mist finer for better combustion to comply with emissions. This extreme pressure and heat causes a chemical reaction resulting in asphaltines. The small amount of fuel that goes back into the return line on the injectors carries the asphaltines back to the tank.
