  1. Well the two tractor halves are one again with all the new parts in etc. Getting IPTO oil seals out was the worst of it, otherwise it all went smooth. Rejoining this smaller tractor was WAY easier putting the clutch on the tranny than trying to line up the freaking shafts to the clutch which was not apparently going to happen. Bolting the pressure plate to the flywheel from underneath was not a problem really, just sit on a stool and go by feel and forget about trying to see it. I never milked a cow in my life but it must be like that.
  2. 460, the solid shaft remained in the tractor but no matter, an alignment tool will be found or made. I am thinking the shaft wore so bad because the clutch had a "wobble"? See pics; if you look close you can see two broken springs on the fingers and uneven wear on the throwout bearing contact patches.
  3. Oops, didn't mean to repost that. OK, tank is not leaking but the glass sediment trap slowly builds up rust fines. Hardly any really. Mr. 460, do I need the clutch alignment tool?
  4. All the parts arrive midweek, can't wait to reassemble it. A few last questions; Do I need one of those plastic clutch alignment tools that mimic the input shafts, or would the old worn out drive shaft work? I have been told that a tranny/hydraulic system flush with diesel fuel would be "a good idea".....Do it or No? Since the fuel tank is off why not seal the inside of it......Any ideas on products to do this? Thanks for everybody's help so far! Here's pics of the worn drive shaft and where it meets the pressure plate.
  5. I have the fuel tank off my 1959 IH460 and want to coat the inside of it.....she be rusty. Could anybody recommend a product and method to do this?

  7. I split the tractor and found both the pto driven shaft splines worn as well as the clutch plate splines that received that shaft. This all sits in a dry clutch cavity, meaning no fluid or oil, so how to avoid this wear? Grease??? Don't want that on the clutch. Now that I am in this deep I am thinking of replacing the rear engine seal and refurb the entire clutch as required. Any other items????
  8. All fluids changed, and 10W went in to it. Both hydraulics AND PTO are weak so I think 460 nailed it. Will tear in to it before long, hopefully it is not the furthest forward shaft at the clutch......But so be it. Hired a guy to blow the driveway for the winter so I have time for a split anyhow. Thanks for the help, will let you know what I find.
  9. Awesome. Thank-you 460. I will do this as soon as Holiday Festivities are over. Don't want grease on the Santa outfit. I assume a tractor split is needed to replace the shaft?
  10. Hello, I need help determining what is making this god awful noise from my IH 460. It came on immediately when backing into a drift blowing snow. Tractor was warmed up, in use for 15 minutes or so at the time. Here is what I know (and Yes I ran the tractor for several minutes to do all this); Power to PTO not completely lost, enough to turn the blower but not enough to take up any load, blow snow. TA in or out makes no difference in noise, TA works fine. Clutch in or out, no difference. Tractor shifts and drives fine, no change in noise regardless of gear, TA in
