    1066 gear issue/question

    Temporary? My wife hasn't escaped yet!!

    I thought all you needed was a roll of duct tape!

    1066 gear issue/question

    Gotcha. So, parts are arriving. I just realized the schematic book I have is partially lame..... I ordered some of those link parts. Little did I realize that the part number I looked at (part 16 on the schematic) does NOT show the EXTRA nut that you have to order (Part 17) because part 17 is next to a DIFFERENT part 16 and not the one I looked at. sigh I'll just have to use the old ones I guess. So, when I go at this, is there any way I can pull shift cylinder out of its hole WITHOUT taking the T/A arm off? I'd really like to just stay on one side of the tractor. (one of the bolts must be stripped on other side because the last time I tried to take that panel off, it just spun & spun.... I don't want to fight it if I can get around it) Also... I think the screw that goes THROUGH the shifter housing (the box hanging on side of machine) is a 5" screw? I think the guy sent me a 4" screw as his instructions are now starting to make sense. He sent a 4" screw AND a 1" threaded "rod" telling me to weld the threaded rod onto the screw which would then give me the length I need. Really? (forget the fact that I don't have a welder)... but really?? So now I have to drive 20 miles out of town (the opposite way I usually travel) to go to a fastener store and see if they have it.

    Air Cleaner Indicator

    Just like a pesky vacuum gauge would work!! (I'm presuming it works the same on a diesel..... I've always been confused by that)

    Thanks. Maybe I'll rely on the eyeball method.

    Air Cleaner Indicator

    Just curious how this works? I'm guessing this is simply a vacuum gauge? As I'm sorting out my shifter issue (waiting on some parts to rebuild the sloppy controls) I'm noticing other things that I'll address in due time. I seem to recall the air cleaner indicator gauge at one point, being in the green.... then another time.... in the red. Does it tend to be full on or full off or, as the air filter gets clogged, will the indicator show "50%" or some value in between?? I've seen a picture of one online but not the rear of it to show me if it's a hose or wires. I know I can figure that part out simple enough by looking at mine but I've not dug into the dash yet.

    1066, where to bolt speed multiplier on PTO?

    I got the mounting instructions from the factory today (Alamo) but, he didn't send me a diagram of the actual plate so I have no idea how THEY have it designed. None the less, their specs are for "at least 1/2" bolts" so I hope those threads will take them. I'm going to try to dig into that (and clean them out) this weekend. Thank you!

    Question, if you look at the picture in the first post, you will see various bolts around the 1000 pto and UNDER the 540 pto. (the bolts around the 1000 are the empty holes that I understand to be threaded. By the way, does anyone know what size they are??) Question.... if I remove one of the LOWER bolts (with idea of maybe using that as a bolt place for the plate after adding a bushing of some form to take up the distance) is there oil inside there that might leak out while that single (or 2-3 bolts) are unbolted?? My thinking is use the bolts around the 1000 output as a main holding force and use maybe two of the bolts under the 540 as a lower support. I just emailed my local fab-shop guy to see if I can drive it by over the weekend so he can get a preliminary idea of what's going on.

    For 20 years, I've seen what amounts to a hand painted sign by a driveway, about 2 miles from my house. Not recalling exactly, but it says something like "Concord Fab shop" and I think it literally is done by hand. To be honest, it looks like a cheesy "Lemonade .25 cents" painted sign that a 10 year old might make... (not that I care mind you) Come to find out recently that the guy is retired from some aircraft company.... I'm liking how this is sounding already!! Cutting to the chase, I called and he said he'd be happy to look at it. (when I first stopped and no one was home, I spoke to his neighbor who said he's a "magician" with metal) He told me in a bit of a far off voice (as in under-stated I hope) "Given what you describe, I 'spose I could make something fit" (I usually like it when someone "'sposes") Anyway, so my intent is to now drive entire machine (mower attached) to him and leave it there to see what it takes to make this happen. I am currently however, waiting for a couple more parts so I can rebuild the darn shift housing so if I drive it.... I can change a gear or perhaps put it back into park!! Hopefully, the parts will arrive this week and I can get it to him this weekend / next week.

    They make a universal fit adapter. What does that mean? It means it's a 1/2" steel plate with a single hole in it (for PTO) and either some other holes for the pump to mount to or maybe they have studs welded to it. (I have no idea) BUT the important thing is, there are ZERO holes drilled to attach to tractor so you still have to figure out how to mount it to the tractor. If that plate is rectangular at say, 8x12 inches (making it up), then the upper portion of it might conflict with the 1000 PTO (if things are hung plumb vertical). So they said no problem....since you have to drill mounting holes anyway, you can rotate it as much as 90 degrees from vertical. If it's rectangular, then where to the left/right am I going to mount it? So, I'm thinking a NON-rectangular plate... might be best. How to describe this... take a 6x12 rectangle, superimpose ANOTHER 6x12 rectangle but rotate it say, 45 degrees to the right. Make this a single plate that has a vertical and 45 degree section. Mount the vertical to the tractor and the angled part would be used for the pump. That make sense? I just don't know what I can bolt to on the back. I like the looks of those 4 holes around the 1000 pto. I've not looked and they're filled with mud. I'm guessing they're probably threaded (??) Prior owner simply welded some tabs to the machine itself rather than use any tractor parts. I don't have a welder so I'm at a disadvantage.

    Nothing requires hydraulic.... I found it for sale locally.... used it on his land (it cut everything presented to it) and it cost about $2,500. It's not pretty but I don't care about pretty. Just wanted it to do a job and the more cost effective, the better.

    In fact, the tractor/mower was being bought as a dedicated mower for the farm. Will it be used for other tasks? "probably" not.... my finish mower (6') just barely fits on it and the tractor cuts up some of the field (tried it other day to give tractor its first use here) Box blade? I have a 4' blade that again, would be too small for tractor. It has no loader nor backhoe attachments....and.... I already have an industrial backhoe/loader so won't need it for that. More of the story: Farm is about 250 acres. Some in the family are looking to finally sell the place (when their father bought it, decades ago, it was earmarked as being part of his retirement income.... now, he's gone, and they're viewing it as part of their retirement income) So to prep the place, it needs to be cut/maintained (used to be leased but all loose ends are being cleaned up so it would be a cleaner sale if it were to sell) So, this is really going to be a large lawn mower..... then if (when) the farm sells, the tractor/mower will either go with the property or, be sold on its own.

    Well, it just so happens that I agree with the chorus line here...and specifically asked them that very question. They said it wouldn't work but didn't explain any more details. Also... I noticed in the paperwork for the mower that the multiplier has two different gear sets.......one to be run off 540 and another for 1,000!. Mine has the 540 gear set. That said... I have no idea the what's & why's, only that they said it wouldn't work (or was it "it won't work correctly??) As to what it is, my understanding is it is a 4x multipler to raise the flow/pressure of the fluid i the system. So, these are the cards I'm holding in my hand..... how do I best play them?
  15. Here's picture of back end. I bought a Terrain King hydraulic flexwing mower to use with this tractor. The mower has a speed multiplier that mounts to the PTO (540). More accurately, there is a 1/2" plate that mounts to the back and the multiplier mounts to the plate. With the 1,000 shaft where it is, it would be in the way of the multiplier. They told me it can be rotated up to 90 degrees to make it fit. My question is, to what exactly would the plate be mounted to? The four bolts around the upper PTO? (I presume those are threaded) They said I can buy a generic fit (no holes drilled) plate for $500. Of course, I then have to find someone to drill the holes. To be fair to them, I understand if I went that route, the universal fit plate would already be prepped to mount the multipler. I'd just have to figure out the pattern for the tractor. I realize $500 is MSRP and I could probably get it for less (I certainly hope so!) but, that price has me looking around by default. What would the correct mounting spots be for a plate like this?
