  1. Had a good day today. Put two new batteries in it and gave it a sniff of candy and she came back to life. oil pressure was excellent. Hydraulic steering and hitch worked great. TA linkage would not move, seems to be siezed at the clutch housing. Only real issue is the brake pedals feel very stiff and one doesn’t return well. Brakes did work though. dug through all the barns and found the draw bar, all hood pieces and side shield. also found the cab doors in like new condition.
  2. Okay, I’ve made the deal. I own it now. I’ll let you know how it goes
  3. Thanks for all your feedback, looks like I need to go buy two new batteries, fresh fuel and see if the old girl will run.
  4. My uncle had a stroke and hasn’t been able to drive it. He just ordered a smaller hydrostatic tractor to get around on. He has been renting his land out so he hasn’t needed this.
  5. Uncle bought it 25 years ago, he has an 80 acre farm. Pulled chisel plow and disc. Drove a school bus his hole life. I don’t think it was worked to hard, I’m more concerned about damage done from sitting in the weeds. My dad knows the original owner.
  6. I have both, what do these things sell for?
  7. My uncle has a 1972 1468 he wants to sell me. I’m trying to get educated before I commit to purchasing. The tractor ran when parked, but he took the hood off to clean rust out of the fuel tank. He has all the sheet metal. Are parts available for the d550v engines? I bared the engine over and it turns. Been sitting for three years. No duals or weights come with the tractor. He has the doors for the cab, but the interior is shot. One piece of glass is broken out. if it doesn’t run, what’s it worth if it does run what’s it worth thanks for the advice. I’m no stranger to rebuilding tractors, and I value all the knowledge on this forum.

    PTO Dyno

    I’m looking to purchase a PTO dyno to be primarily used on d310 engines. 100hp and less. Any recommendations on what to watch out for with a PTO dyno. Any leads on one for sale? I’m located in Indiana.
  9. yes, they have parts for the D358
  10. I will be using Anglo Parts that are manufactured in the UK. They made the last kit that I used for a D310 and the quality seemed good. You can buy the kit from Tractor Parts Direct. Search ebay for D310 kit and you will see several options for less than $1,000, or you can go to the tractor parts direct website
  11. I appreciate the advice. By the time I buy a gasket set, bearings and rings ($680), I might as well just buy the full rebuild kit for $1,000 that includes pistons, sleeves and wrist pins. I was hoping to keep some more of this engine original, but it sounds like re-utilizing parts isn't advisable. Thanks again for all the input.
  12. I acquired another 706 that my grandfather bought new in 1967. I have completely disassembled the engine and found the bearings and sleeves to be within factory specifications for tolerance. I tore the engine apart because When I acquired the tractor it was not running and when I went to drain the oil, there was a heavy crust at the bottom of the oil pan. The tractor was parked due to a bad injection pump. After a thorough cleaning of all oil passages, I would like to reassemble the engine with the same bearings and rings that I removed putting them all back in the same positions they came out of. Should I hone the cylinders prior to reassembly with the old rings? I have rebuilt my grandfather’s other 706 D310 with all new parts, so I am very familiar with the engine. Any tips or advice on reassembly of used parts is appreciated.
  13. I recently rebuilt a D310 and installed a new oil pump. I’m running 15w40 oil. On startup my oil pressure spikes to about 90psi and after it warms up it drops to 50. If I really work her hard it’ll drop down to 30 at idle. Outside temperature is 80 degrees. is this normal? I’m using a $80 auto meter mechanical gauge. I haven’t checked any other gauges. The oil pressure gauge and light take about 3 seconds after startup to begin reading pressure.
