    1456 clutch repair

    On my 1066 with a custom cab (diamond cab) it had a short pedal, with no booster. The person I bought a booster from told me the boosters always came with a long (or taller) pedal. I guess I believed him because my 766 and my 966 have boosters and tall pedals. My 756 and 826 have no booster and short pedals. The booster I bought for my 1066 didn't come from a 66 series, but it had a tall pedal. In that diamond shaped cab, the battery cover is in front of the clutch pedal, and that short pedal was difficult to get the pedal clear down. The longer pedal makes it easier to get the pedal down to start it.

    Does anyone know why tractors with a clutch booster had a taller clutch pedal? I would think without a booster a longer or taller clutch pedal would give more leverage and be more beneficial. But it is my understanding the shorter one is the way the we're without.

    A couple years ago I give 850 for one. We'll worth it for as much as it gets clutched though.

    Dreaded starter button thunk.

    I recently had a starter off that I had no trouble with, it was in the way for what I was fixing.I had it checked because it was off. I found out it had the wrong drive on it. They asked how my ring gear looked. I said fine. They said it wasn't going in the teeth all the way because the drive was wrong. Looking at the ring gear he was right. It was only one third of the way in the teeth. The teeth looked fine. I have no idea how long it was on that tractor. I have only put 100 hours on it since I bought it. You said the starter was a rebuild before you bought it. Hopefully it is the right one for the tractor.

    That happened to mine in the fall of 2017. Slipped on the low side. Put in new clutch packs in the two speed and redone master clutch. Expensive, but now good for a long time. I got a kit from triple r tractors. The cutch pack on the high didn't slip but it was in bad shape also.

    1066 battery tray (the long skinny one)

    On caseih website it's the same part number for each side. 157 bucks each! Ouch. I am surprised at the price. Bet they don't sell many anymore with them so accessible aftermarket.

    I am sure they are identical. I don't think there is any reason they wouldn't be.

    1066 Fluid Capacity

    I wasn't trying to be a smarta$$. But if you don't find all the plugs and drain them then the amount it will take to fill will change. I tend to trust the dipstick more than the capacity in the book. The owners manual should tell you where the plugs are. Good luck.

    Looks like one light is lit on the left front. Hopefully it isn't to much trouble to figure out

    Put it a little over full on the dipstick and call it good.

    Samson Tires

    For the piece of mind I would go with Firestones. I don't think I have ever seen them weather check. I have never had samson rears. But I have samson on my skid loader. But I put enough hours on it a year they won't last a long time. If it's a tractor you don't put alot of hours on you might as well buy good tires that you know will last along time.

    Go firestone. You won't regret it.

    Humor at my Governor's expense!

    I agree totally! People go to prison for murder and are out in a few years because they are reformed. But that governor had a stupid moment 30 years ago and people can't believe he could have changed! It is ridiculous. The liberals use the media to stir all this crap up.

    State of the Union

    It is ridiculous how the room was so divided on comments Trump made with half standing and half not. It is no wonder nothing gets done. All the democrats want to do is launch investigations. Trump is disrupting politics as usual with his leadership and I applaud him for that. I don't agree with him all the time, but he has alot of people on their toes. We need to manage for the future instead of spending so much money on investigating the past. I wish I knew how much money has been wasted on investigating. Maybe enough to build a wall?

    Cummins vs Cat

    I actually have a truck with a 3306 in it now but the motor needs work. Still runs but I am going to have to do something with it or move it. I don't want to buy a different truck and have similar problems but there are no guarantees. I have had a couple local guys tell me to rebuild what I have as that is a way simpler engine than something newer. Haven't decided which way I will go yet. If it was an IH tractor I would already ordered the parts!
