  1. 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.
  2. Almost done, just need to break the new engine in. Pulled this out of Grandpas barn July 11 of 2017 and gave it a full rebuild. Grandpa bought it new it 1966. German D310. I’m going to convert the ih 560 plow to a 4 bottom.
  3. Started this project back in July of 2017, bought my Grandpa's 706 Farmall that he bought brand new in 1966. I have been enjoying working on it with him and actually got it running on Christmas eve. Just need to finish installing the wiring and sheetmetal and it is almost complete.
  4. I am restoring my grandfathers 1966 706 that he bought new. The restoration is a complete engine out overhaul and I would like to buy a re-manufactured external oil pump for the D310. Anyone know of a source I could get an oil pump at a reasonable price?
