  1. Okay, so I connected a test gauge with roughly an 8 foot hose to the oil port and it took about 13 seconds to start registering any pressure. Once it did it quickly went up to 48 at idle. Once the tractor was fully warmed up the tractor does 35-36 at hot idle and 45-46 when you run the rpm up. When I shut the tractor off it drops to 10lbs within a few seconds and then takes longer to fully drain as the pressure drops reading completely zero in about 10-12 seconds. Rusty factory gauge shows the same thing. If you restart it within a couple minutes of shutting it off, it will immediately register pressure as soon as it starts. Does this sound normal to you guys?
  2. No I didn't, the bolts felt tight and I didn't think about the gasket.
  3. Hi, I recently picked up another issue with the old girl. When you first start the tractor it runs a good 10 seconds or so showing no oil pressure, seems strange because it never used to do that. At first I thought the old gauge might be sticky but I'm pretty sure that's not the problem. When the tractor is warmed up and working the gauge registers oil pressure changes quickly when you change the rpm. Also, when you shut the tractor off it smoothly drops to zero without sticking. I pulled the oil pan off and it was kinda sludgey in the bottom but the pickup screen was clean and from what I could see the oil passages looked clean. I cleaned everything out, replaced the oil and filter. I figured I'd see what replacing a few quarts with Marvel did so I ran it for a bit like that then flushed it and replaced the oil and filter. No change at all. If you loosen the fittings on the oil line running to the gauge while it's running oil is pumps out and the gauge immediately registers the change so I'm pretty darn sure it's not the culprit. If you guys have any ideas please let me hear em'. The engine sounds great while running and I have too much to do with the tractor to tear it apart right now. Not to mention I have no money either since it is all going into the new shop currently being put up.
  4. Interesting question, hopefully somebody knows something. I could use that on my 560 as well.
  5. Well, it was a pain but it seems like I was able to get the housing straightened out pretty good. When I rest the glass bowl on the housing there is no side to side wobble and only an almost imperceptible bit of movement front to back. Before there was about a 3/16 inch gap front to back. Hopefully the thick new rubber gasket should be good enough now to seal it up. Only issue now is whatever that sealer/packing material is on the shutoff valve crumbled and fell apart. It was so old and crappy I can't even tell what kind of material it was or how it was originally packed in there. Anybody have any advice on what to use and how to reseal those things?
  6. I got a couple new gaskets from the local case/IH dealer and they are a really nice thick rubber but the bowl rocks back and forth in the housing and leaks badly. The mirror is a pretty good idea. I had to twist my head pretty good to get a clear look under there and my housing is most definitely warped. I don't have an arbor press but do have a vise and some old bearing races lying around; it would be worth a shot. From what I can find, the aftermarket fuel bowl assemblies seem to be lacking in the quality department. I wonder if I can find a water separator/filter assembly from a diesel vehicle or industrial engine that will work.
  7. Hi, I need to replace the warped and badly leaking sediment bow assembly on the 560 diesel and was wondering if any of you guys have done something similar? It has been warped forever but now it just started leaking like a sieve. There was a mix of 4 different thick and thin cork gaskets above the glass bowl and no matter what I try now it will not seal up at all. It seems like the quickest way is to just put a ball valve on (not sure of thread size) but it is nice having a water separator since often times there is at least some water in mine. I don't care about stock appearance, I just need something that that works effectively and doesn't leak. Any help will be appreciated.
