  1. Not sure why they care if I sleep without snoring anyways. I’m only asleep while driving maybe 10-15% of the the time at the most. 😬
  2. Couple thoughts. just because the loaded isn’t leaking doesn’t mean the cylinders aren’t bypassing internally. Raise the loader up and unplug your quick couplers. If it stays up it’s the tractor valve if it creeps down it’s the loader cylinders. if it’s the tractor valves leaking by you could buy a joystick valve and plumb that in then it wouldn’t matter if your tractor valve hold or not. my 2 cents
  3. It can do the farming on its own thus freeing you up to get an extra job in town to pay for it. 😬
  4. I have a 3 speed auxiliary trans in my 1850 loadstar. It’s underdrive- direct- overdrive. It’s behind a DT466 and 5 speed. you can jack up a rear tire and rotate the input shaft one turn and see how much the output shaft turns in each gear to get an idea of the gearing. mine has that exact aux gear stick.
  5. I must have just got lucky
  6. Yes. my local case IH dealer was able to get it for me with just the serial number. They didn’t charge me so I’m assuming they got it free. It’s a 1972 loadstar 1850. This was about 5-6 months ago.
  7. Yes sir. when they switched to roosa master they used the same canister filters but had a steel line connecting the outlet of the primary filter to inlet of final filter then down to the injection pump.
  8. Keep in mind that your RD fuel flow is tank, primary filter, charge pump, final filter, injection pump. the roosa flow is tank, primary filter, final filter, injection pump. the lines will need to be routed differently than the way they are on the 56 series setup.
  9. not the best quality but it has all the information needed.
  10. My case IH dealer was able to get one for my 1972 loadstar a few months ago. It really helps source parts to have the line sheet.
  11. I take mine along to tractor shows and let kids ride it while their dads talk tractors. Lots of fun.
  12. You did a great job on that. looks just like mine. I agree they missed the white color by a mile.
  13. I got to see that before they restored it when I lived in Fairbanks for a while Cool idea
  14. Oh man I had that same under dash pioneer super tuner when I was young. cool ride.
  15. I put 5,000hrs on a 1568 and 6,000hrs on a versatile with a 504 cummins doing heavy tillage, no problem with either one. Both got sold and replaced with FWA 5488’s.
  16. I’m pretty sure the 666 casting is notched so you can install the square pin centered in the shaft first and then slide the assembly into the casting.
  17. My 1850 loadstar has a 5 and 3. the 3 speed has an under drive to use in soft fields or any time to want to creep along. direct and overdrive that you use to split each gear in the 5 speed. works good but takes a bit of practice to be smooth.
  18. The 88’s were painted with watermelon juice.
  19. I go the the junk yard and buy the filter housing off a 66 series with the round, oring cap so I don’t have to mess with that gaskets on every filter change. usually about 20 bucks if you pull it off yourself.
  20. I’ve never done what you’re wanting to do but I do know that when I had my three speed apart on my 1568 there was just a spacer on each shaft where the extra gear would be in the four speeds. I feel like they left 2nd gear out of the 15’s judging by the huge split between first and second. I always wanted to compare part numbers on all the parts to see what the deal was but never got around to it. My bet is there is more in common than not.
  21. He probably just didn’t want an odd number of tires in his inventory. the rest is BS. around here it’s all pivot circles. The machines go their entire life with one tire going faster then the other and never a problem.
  22. I’ve seen that before also where engine oil gets into the vacuum cavity on those pulse fuel pumps and then they quit pumping enough fuel to run right. Everything looks fine but you take them apart and there is a 1/2 teaspoon of oil in there. Clean it out and all is back to normal.
  23. Hydros are nice but choosing between a gas 656 hydro and a diesel 966 gear drive I would buy that 966 in a heartbeat. I have both and the 966 is better in almost every way. just my 2 cents.
  24. I’ve had belts make that noise before. Try spraying a little WD40 on one belt at a time while it’s running and see if the noise stops.
  25. I’ve been dealing with this problem for many decades. Nothing discourages then from my experience. you either mouse proof the shed or just sell everything before they destroy it. I know that’s a gloomy outlook but that’s been my experience. good luck.
