  1. Years ago there was a guy I would see at farm auctions that had a 66 or so dodge power wagon with a Perkins diesel. had factory looking cast metal Perkins emblems on the side of the hood. Looked and sounded good.
  2. Did they come painted red? the only ones I’ve got to work are the super expensive black ones from CIH dealer.
  3. Instead of taking it apart just buy a temp gun and when it’s hot see what the temp actually is on one of the freeze plugs or thermostat housing then you will have a decent idea what your gauge is telling you. my 2cents.
  4. I bet it started right up and didn’t have a check engine light.
  5. Might be an old oilfield truck that someone put a live floor potato box on. there were a lot of those two steer axle trucks used to move drilling rigs. they had a big winch right behind the cab and a roll back flatbed to drag heavy skids up on them. They needed to be really heavy in the front to drag that stuff up on the back. There is a similar configuration kenworth close to my house I will get a picture of if I remember.
  6. I had manual drums on my roadrunner for years. hit them hard at 120mph and they slowed you down pretty good to about 50-60 and then faded to nothing. swapped the fronts to discs from a challenger and rears from mark Williams. Still manual but stops good with no fade.
  7. Something about watching a bunch of new calves just makes me happy.
  8. I have a miller bobcat welder/generator with gas engine and have that in my heated shop and wired up to my transfer switch. I use it for stick welding in the shop, load it on pickup for remote welding and it can run my well, furnace etc. during power outages. wont run everything at the same time but has worked well for me for years. Uses a gallon an hour of gas is one drawback. it gets used enough that I haven’t had any issues with old gas etc. my 2 cents
  9. I spent many many hours as a kid on a super H with 8’ roller breaking a crust after a hard rain to get the ground loose enough for sugar beets to come up. Hot and noisy but that’s how I learned.
  10. Doesn’t your super M have the squared off rim where the lugs clamp and the hydro has the double bevel rims?
  11. No need to remove the pump or lines only the wheel.
  12. Been a few years since I’ve done one. The original had 4 or 5 different seals, washers and bushing in there. you just take off the steering wheel with a puller. Remove a snap ring and then slide wheel back on. With engine off just turn the steering wheel and it’s builds enough pressure to push all the old parts out. My kit had directions for the order the new stuff went back in. I don’t remember using any of the old parts except maybe the snap ring. You definitely throw away more old parts then what’s in the kit. good luck.

    Not mine

    Lot of money but I have the same tractor and I wouldn’t sell it for that.
  14. I agree. Not a bad tractor but if you can step up to a 706 it’s twice the tractor. Better hitch, better hydraulics, better steering, more gears.
  15. Do not take the six bolt 3x6” plate off. There is a valve under there that controls the three point hitch. The remote linkage you need is above that and directly under the seat. Much easier to access if you pull the 4 seat suspension bolts out and get the seat out of your way if you’re working inside a cab.
  16. Your post is working fine. My 656 is a gear drive so I can’t answer your question but someone will chime in I’m sure.
  17. I’m sure you probably know already. that RD pump has a spring in it that adds fuel for better starting when cold. You have to have the throttle wide open to engage that spring while cranking. This might help it start but you probably have something else going wrong also. this picture is right out of the RD service manual.

    That’s cool. I like the red cabs better also. I always have the side windows open.
  19. I took all the hand crank stuff off the front. the gear is a standard size hole. Slides right on the crank. I used a tapered pin that was sized for existing hole in the crankshaft and drilled my gear to accept that pin. I did have to slide my front bolster forward to have enough room to slide the gear on. It all fits but it’s close. It’s just standard 60 chain. 15 tooth on the crankshaft and 40 tooth on the pump I think. the pump I just bought a PTO extension shaft that’s available and turned the big end down to accept an off the shelf tapered gear flange. hard to get my phone in there for a decent picture. I don’t remember cutting the fan shroud but looking at that picture it looks like I may have. Been too long to remember. took a couple days but the live hydraulics are definitely a night and day improvement.
  20. The pipe grill was later. our 1965 has mesh and our 1968 had the pipe grill. Not sure when they changed.

    I think they had white border originally but it’s been a long time since they were new.

    Bought this 10 a few months ago. Pretty original tractor and it has the decals in the back corners. This is an early white cab with the different inside door handles like the ones on a loadstar truck.
  23. I put a behlen power steering on mine and run the loader pump with a chain off the front of the crankshaft. Kinda noisy but has worked good for 50 years.
