  1. throw them as far as possible. do not use them unless u want to have stuck valves in the future
  2. p&h minepros might still have a old guy in the back that might know something. or maybe old spec. info
  3. everyone should have the experiance of fitting babbit brgs. once in their lifetime. last one i did was about 10 yrs. ago at a powerplant that had 4 open motor compressors each having 4 10 in. dia by 18 in. long brgs. took 2 weeks to get them all perfect. still have a full set of scrapers keep them sharp and well oiled
  4. i put the plastic ones on about 10 years ago they made a big difference in feeding tough crops
  5. almost sounds like the kit had posi valve seals in it. if thats the case throw them as far as u can. then get regular umbrella seals. posi seal are good in the auto ind. not so much for a ag engine.
  6. early 915 had big wrist pin 407s like 1456 had 815 had small wrist pin 407
  7. the update included a larger dia. fan shaft, 4 legged fan support, and improved brg. the brg. is larger and has better seals to keep the dust out. and a bigger shaft coupling to water pump. put a few on back in the day. s 4698 is service bulletin on the update. my 52 and 54 have been updated. 50 never has. 52 is hard on front brg. i think who ever updated it never drilled the wholes right. just never have checked. next time it needs a brg gonna try to remember to check layout and mounts for air box. seems like every 2 years 52 needs a brg. 54 and 50 probably been over ten yrs since replaced
  8. the 310 has made it this long. a out of frame overhaul done correct will last another 40 yrs. there not the cheapest to overhaul but u can still get parts
  9. peacefull creek manuals, binder books or jensales although their not the quality of the first 2
  10. the shear pin is the pin that holds front half of engagement dogs on the shaft. think maybe a 5/16 soft pin with cotter pin in it
  11. for germ test wet paper towels place seed between them. put in a old cooler or anything that dont let much sun light in. put ten kernals in if 9 sprout u have 90% germ. if 8 sprout u have 80% germ
  12. the pin that goes thru the drive dog is supposed to be a shear pin. its soft its supposed to break before gear or auger damage occurs. farmers being farmers the first pin that sheared got replaced with a grade 5 or 8 bolt that they had laying around
  13. some ivecos had a filter in the blowby recover system. they never get changed . then they put excess oil vapor into the intake air system. the filter is usually on the back of engine . looks like a square box. its supposed to be replaced every 500 hrs. to prevent this. i think im the only one in this area that replaces them every one that comes in the shop. nobody ever knows they have one and its suposed to be changed with every 500 hour oil and filter change
  14. 1 in. impact, 200psi. shop air with 1/2 hose. havent had any that takes more than 10 min. to loosen
  15. does anybody know if someone is making new right hand console top pieces or where to get good ones from? dealer said nla. need the two top pieces tia
  16. imho if your buying bulls that cheap they probably shouldnt be bulls. for 9 head i would be looking real hard at ai program. then try to keep some good hfrs. and keep with the ai. in a few years u could be selling a lot more pounds at the sale barn or maybe even sell a better bull than what u are going to buy for 1900
  17. i wouldnt be afraid of the icons. i have been impressed with there quality. all my tools in shop are snapon or mac. service truck hasa little bit of everything in it from wright, williams or Slip and Kill. broke 2 SK ratchets 35 miles from home on a sunday. 10 miles from harbor freight store bought a long handle flex head 1/2 icon ratchet put 2 foot pipe on it. it took the bolts out that broke the anvils off the Slip and Kills
  18. had the same experiance growing up. except when turning wrenches on stuffit was a older brother. u should see what he can do to steel hyd. lines or inj. lines when they dont thread on right away. my dad thought if working cows they should always be running. lots of screaming throwing dirt clouds and cracking whips
  19. look at mcmaster carr. have got the same design from them just dont know about the right size. however that seem more reasonable than 1990625c1 price. $69 a piece. the cable ends for magnum hyd. cables. blew my mind
  20. there is plastic bushings in the cross tubes for shifter and park. they wear out and let it drop down causing this problem
  21. easiest way to tell if on no. 1 cyl. is to take the triangle shape cover off side of pump. theres a line on the pump head. if u can see the line u are on no. 1
  22. it depends on wich end the lines have on them weather u use steel or teflon sealing rings.
  23. i have a customer that has a xtx 185. he's hard on equipment and the xtx stands up as well as the magnums he has. if u need to buy parts for a mccormick cross everything u can to caseih their almost half price of mccormick on most things
  24. iowa i think is 24.5 cent tax plus 24.5 federal tax. a few years ago either state or feds added 11 cent tax that is non refundable but cant remember witch one. the initial 49 cents is refundable for off road use
