  1. Your constantly moving steering wheel to keep it straight n when u get to end of row to turn around it takes more n more turns as it get warmer. Someone said moving the steering wheel when it's not running will cause this problem that were they bi-directional valve was suggested. Idk. That why im asking on here
  2. J-Mech 1 3/4 turns from all the way left to all the way rite. Btw only 725hrs on this machine I don't know what the life expectancy is for a steering cylinder, but has probably been that way for 150 - 200hrs
  3. Yes when you turn steering wheel all way right to "stop" and hold pressure against it the steering wheel will keep turning with some resistance. Turns both ways against stop but less resistance when turned all the way right. Any thoughts J-Mech?? Thanks Slick
  4. Steering is very loose. i.e. you have to turn wheel alot to get a little at wheels. I do know damage was done by someone turn steering wheel when it was not running. Repeatedly (Power steering) anyone know the fix for this problem?? A friend mentioned a bidirectional valve maybe?? Thanks for any info Slick
  5. Danny, you probably mounted up the duals on my 66 or maybe that was a lil before time ? Hope your well!! Slick
  6. Would think your goose neck trailer should be at least 96" deck if not 102" Not sure of tractor width to answer your question. My 1066 with extended axels with hubs 6-8" from ends fits on my 96" deck Slick
  7. Maybe you should read the book 1st. And get the facts correct. Case didn't buy IH Tenneco did who already owned Case. Which then became CaseIH. But maybe everyone else has been wrong for the last 35yrs, but whatdo i know. Slick
  8. We had super 717 with 560 gas in front of it, if knives where set and adjusted rite could get hay silage to the back of Rex chopper box, otherwise not so much, corn silage no problem. 300 utility on the blower with cherry bomb rite off manifold... Loud!! Then the 1256 came to the farm and cousin ran that in front of super 717 until he got greedy with the rpms and blew 3 knives off the drum lodging 2 halfway up the chute and other shrapnel ending up in the wagon. Lesson learned. ( I think?) Slick
  9. Start with easy things 1st, check and or replace air cleaner, change oil then monitor level. If the oil level goes up then yes you have other issues, injectors, pump seals, small steps before jumping to conclusions. Hope this helps Slick
  10. X2. If your not really working those engines they will "wet stack" or "slobber" bad, winter time especially. As stated before change oil, work the heck out of it keeping eye on oil level. Slick
  11. 3406B Best engine CAT ever made, til 3406E then C15-C16 King of the hill!! Imho Slick
  12. Thank you, my point exactly. Was just trying to help a guy out. Been there, made that mistake knot on my head i remember. Slick
