    another wedge question thanks

    Try warming it up and melt wax into the threads. The wax will penetrate the threads much further than penetrating oils will. Oils will burn off, not get into the threads.

    If you have one of these...

    If you are burning wood, lower temperatures will lead to faster creosote buildup. 120-130* temperatures are also low enough to cause chimney temperatures to be too low. I thought you were burning coal, so maybe this won't be a problem. I have no experience with coal.

    Where used part locator?

    I know this is not really what you are asking, but IH had a Parts Department book that did list all IH part numbers and their application.

    Hard starting 966

    Also, because of the battery disconnect, it is likely the alternator is draining the batteries quickly. Are you sure they are fully charged? Maybe the disconnect is rated for a smaller motor and can't flow the amps a966 needs.

    Hard starting 966

    Also, might carefully feel each cable connection immediately after cranking . If one or more is especially hot, or warm, that would be a good connection to clean or replace.

    691 farms wis.

    I was at a farm auction at the time of the 80's dairy buyout. I spent some time talking with a couple retired dairy farmers I knew. The topic was how wasteful the government was to buy your herd of cows and then pay you for a year's production when the huge surplus of milk could have been reduced at a fraction of the cost by putting a bounty on heifer calves. The bounty could be paid by the government like a price support or self funded by dairy farmers. Their idea was all calves have their normal market value. Under their bounty plan, you would bid a price for your heifer calves to go to feedlots only, or direct to slaughter. At the time maybe $200, or $300 per calf would have remove and control future milk production. Heifer calves would be ear notched and have teats removed to prevent cheating. Huge penalties for violators. I always thought it was an idea that probably would have worked.

    Any tricks to getting a frozen tool box open?

    Have any air brake/ air line antifreeze around? Just spray it on with a spray bottle, and wait 10 minutes, it will probably open. Windshield washer solution should work too.

    IH 966 Hydraulics

    Another thought I just had is that there is an oring, or oring type seal in the hydraulic suction above the hytran full level. Some times this oring leaks in some way and sucks in air and causes the hydraulics to lose its prime. If I remember right, the result is what you describe. The cheap cure is overfill the hytran 5 gallons above the full mark. No harm will happen by being 5 gallons overfull. Much cheaper than splitting the tractor to replace a $2 oring. Sorry, I am not a mechanic. Maybe someone else can describe this better.

    IH 966 Hydraulics

    I would check that the hytran is full. The dipstick to check is by your right foot by the brake pedal. Proper color, not milky. Change the hydraulic filter next. Good chance the oil is old and contaminated. It is not normal to wait for pressure as you did. If the oil is contaminated, dump it and put in new. I would probably change it even if it looks kinda OK.

    Biiiiiig bird

    Eagles are fairly common here. (central Wisconsin) Usually see several every month. Year before last I had 7 one afternoon in my freshly cut hayfield feeding on the easy to find field mice.

    Hydro 84 - Puking out oil breather tube

    "We do lots of low idle, vegetable planting with this tractor." How much is a lot of low idle? Maybe running at idle, and engine not up to temperature, the sleeves are glazed? Might get by with just tearing it down and honing the sleeves?

    Hydraulic oil help

    There is a good chance the drivers/users of the truck left the hydraulic pump in engaged, instead of shutting it off between use. When left on pressure the oil shears, sort of homogenizes, and weakens the oil. I've seen 460 and 560 Farmalls that the hydraulic valves messed up and were stuck on pressure do the same thing with new, clean hytran. No moisture involved.

    Sounds like the hard working Clark County sheriff dept. They have tracks, witnesses, other information and tell you to be sure to let them know if any other information comes up. and be sure to call them. I'm just not sure what to call them. This was regarding a theft. They talk a good talk, but as soon as they are out the driveway, they already forgot about you.
