    Hi all, I found a good one in Ohio for $850 and $200 shipping. I'm well on my way to fixing up an old tractor for use again. Thanks to all for your help.

    Thanks Rainman, I found it. It looks great, I'm just not sure how to get it to Va. I'll see if he will ship it. Thanks.

    Now that I have our 1966 706 running I'm looking for a wide front end for it. Does anyone have one to sell or know where I can find one that is in good shape? I have looked at the websites of some salvage yards but most of them are in real bad shape. Thanks in advance.

    282d engine timing for a 706

    It was about 20* off. The IH book I have says it should be set at 0 but so many folks here said 3 to 7 before would be best so I set at 3 BTDC and it runs good there. And again, thanks to everyone's advice.

    282D engine trouble in a 706 Farmall

    Well, I just got back home from looking at it again. I set the crank timing marks to 3 BTDC and then adjusted the marks in the pump window to line up exactly by using the adjustment on the front of the pump. I runs now as it should. Didn't want to let down my 78 year father who loves these 706's. He now has 3 working 706 tractors. Thanks to everyone for your help.

    282d engine timing for a 706

    Well, I just got back home from looking at it again. I used your advice and set the crank timing marks to 3 BTDC and then adjusted the marks in the pump window to line up exactly by using the adjustment on the front of the pump. I runs now as it should. I was stressed and looking for something that wasn't there. Didn't want to let down my 78 year father who loves these 706's. He now has 3 working 706 tractors. Thanks to everyone for your help. You have made us both happy men.

    282d engine timing for a 706

    yes, I did get that. I'm going to look at it again tomorrow. The tractor is at my fathers farm 80 miles away. I'm going to set the crank at 1 degree BTDC and try to align the timing marks inside the pump. That didn't work before but we did so many adjustments on Monday I don't remember what we did. Thanks and I'll keep you posted.

    282d engine timing for a 706

    Are you referring to the dots in the pump and on the pump shaft I have been hearing about? If so, I don't know. We had a guy from a local tractor service place come over to install the pump. If that is what you referring to, is there a way to tell from looking through the front cover of the pump?

    282d engine timing for a 706

    can anyone answer this question? If the crank is at TDC and timing marks from crank to cam line up at 2:00 and the crank to idler gear line up at 10:00 and the pump gear lines up to the idler gear marks, how can any part of the timing system be off 180?

    rustred, where is this dot located? Can it be seen from the front through the access cover over the pump gear?

    282d engine timing for a 706

    is leaning the pump away from the engine setting the timing closer to BTDC or closer to ATDC?

    I may be doing this wrong but buy leaning the pump away from the engine is moving the timing closer to BTDC isn't it?

    282d engine timing for a 706

    I'm trying to set the timing as the book says at TDC. I can set it there but it doesn't run good and blows white smoke. I currently have the pump hub maxed and the pump leaned as far from the engine as possible. That has helped and it started to run better but I'm out of timing adjustment.

    282d engine timing for a 706

    horrible, the bolt that held the IP idler gear had come out and the gear was just bouncing around behind the cover and between the crank gear and the pump gear. I got a replacement idler gear and install it. Now here I am trying to get it timed after getting the front back on and getting the pump rebuilt.

    282d engine timing for a 706

    I think I have it close but just not quite there. I read somewhere yesterday and they said it would run if 180 out but not run well. I don't see how it would be possible to run if any part of the system were 180 out of time. Is that correct?
