  1. I run mine at 175 and then have a regulator that I quick connect inline if I want lower pressure for any reason. its nice having the high psi for blowing things off and the impact guns actually have some power. Done it like this forever and never hurt anything.
  2. Early 90’s... unhook the corn cultivator.... drive 35 miles to town for tractor pulls... take 3rd... grab a burger at the drive in on the way home! A simple plan.
  3. Here’s my fridge. Samsung with IH conversation kit.
  4. Be good to rig up some kinda draft control Incase your girls too heavy.
  5. In my experience when you start these up cold the much larger hitch pump will pull so hard to try to get it’s oil through the filter that it will un-prime the MCV pump. dirty filter, weak MCV pump and cold thick oil all add up to this condition.

    Carb help

    Put a new rubber cap on there. looks like some vapor coming out from a crack in old cap. Pretty normal to see a little fog in that port for a short while after shutting off the engine. That is just a vacuum port that your not using in your application. Could go to a brake booster or pvc valve if used on a different truck. just my 2 cents
  7. They did make some fast hitch prongs that would clamp to a diamond tool bar like you have. I also have a vague image in my head of some fast hitch prongs that would bolt to those brackets with the slotted hole that you have but been decades since I’ve seen those.
  8. Welcome aboard! The ignition and sender studs should be insulated from the cluster metal housing. ignition is the 12 volt power wire coming from the key switch. sender is the wire to the sender unit in the top of fuel tank. you don’t need the negative if the bracket grounds the cluster to the dash but if the light doesn’t work you can run a grounding wire to that negative terminal. clear as mud? good luck
  9. I have a stack of older 100’s. if I keep them long enough they might be worth a hundred bucks.

    Sorry Ford guys

    In 1968 the fastest/quickest cars at the drag strip were the hemi cuda / dart
  11. Mid 80’s pic of my ‘78 power wagon, big block 4 speed. Was fun to drive , horrible gas mileage.
  12. Giant prairie dog killer?
  13. I couldn’t come up with anything good so I just put about 40 coats of black spray can paint over a couple days and it looks close to the factory coating and is holding up well. I will be interested if anyone has anything better.
  14. I was a school bus mechanic for a while. kids nowadays could make a new bus look like that in 6 months. ? I wonder who made the bus body?
  15. If you have a few days without needing the tractor I would charge them up good then unhook all the cables. check voltage on each battery (around 6 volts) and write it down. Come back in a couple days and check again. I bet one of the two has an internal drain and is pulling both down. New batteries are junk.
  16. One thing I have seen that does the same as your description. bad vent to gas tank. Try running it without the gas cap on and see if it fixes it. If not you ain’t out nothin.
  17. This is exactly right in my experience. the hitch pump is WAY bigger then the MCV pump and when you start up in the morning and oil is cold that hitch pump pulls so hard on that filter that it can actually pull oil FROM the MCV pump and un-prime it. the more restrictive the filter and the more wore out the MCV pump the worse the problem. If it was my tractor I would do a fluid and filter change first with new hytran, 80% chance that fixes the issue. If it still does it then a new MCV pump and MCV seal kit will be next, either way it’s all fairly easy to do. good luck
  18. Previous owners maybe put a fan and shroud from a 1206. It’s wider and uses different side panels
  19. I had the same issue on mine. I put a thin backer ring on with the oring and it sealed it right up. Any hydraulic shop will have a backer ring for a couple dollars.
  20. take the entire MCV off and buy the kit to seal the whole thing. If you try to just take the plate off you will end up with the bolts removed that hold the pump on and you will have a mess. There are four bolts that have copper washers. Leave those in to hold the pump to the MCV while you are taking it off the tractor. watch for the spring and little white plug in lower right hole. the kit comes with decent instructions, be sure to use correct gaskets as the kit comes with extras. good luck.
  21. If he is replacing the shaft anyways it seems to me like two minutes with a cut off disc on an angle grinder would have it off. maybe I’m missing something.
  22. Hold out for a 1486 or 1586. 3208 cats are worthless compared to an IH DT 436/466 in my opinion
  23. Cool that you’re going to keep your grandpa’ 806 running. here are the parts breakdown for the RD. In including the table of contents so if you need a few other pages I can get them. 70 page book so I’m not posting the entire thing. I would recommend getting a manual. They are pretty sensitive to dirt so be sure things are super clean when going back together. good luck.
