  1. Getting everything ready for hay season. Used the 460 to pull the old Farmhand F-5 up for service.
  2. Think you’re right, ran a pick down in the grease, I really can’t feel any threads, plus this makes sense if I was on the last few threads at the bottom, the hitch would be uneven. Glad to have that caught before hay season. 😳 I’ve ordered a replacement yoke from All States Ag. 👍
  3. My 2 point fast hitch has been converted to a 3 point, the problem I have is that it sets crooked, the right side is lower than the left. My quick fix, since hay season is only a few weeks away was to put machinery bushings under the duck head. When I took it apart and added the bushings, I can’t get the crank threads to take up, its like nothing is there even when I elevate the hitch to the point the crank screw bottoms out on the hitch frame. What am I missing?
  4. Well, with the suggestion of the parts lookup illustrations and yet another manual and I found it. I have all necessary parts on order.
  5. Good call! I see the rod ball 368298R1 listed (same as my suspicions from the utility brakes). I’m assuming there’s a spring, anybody have info on that?
  6. Ok guys, I’ve started a brake rebuild on the ‘61. The left brake functions, but is so worn out it does nothing, right has a little brake left. Opened them up last night, these brakes have been cobbled back together. I replaced ball bearings, disc pads (old ones were almost 1/8” worn down), dust covers and springs, actuators were in good shape just needed cleaned. Brake surfaces were flat, don’t appear to need machined. My problem is the connecting yoke (368 297 R1) has been broken off on the left side (I found new ones 403840R2 from Case), somebody jammed a coarse thread nut and bolt on to the fine threads of the broken yoke shaft and jammed it with a couple nuts and washers. Right side has an oversized nut in the pedal socket with two nuts and a washer jammed against that. My parts manual doesn’t show what pieces are missing, operator’s manual gives the adjustment, but I’m trying to figure out what parts are missing. Do I need brake operating ball 368 298 R1 (shown in parts manual for the 460 utility) on each side and a spring with 3 jam nuts? Just trying to get it back together the right way. Any help or pictures would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Thanks! I will try to get ahold of them. It’s just a neat piece of history for the tractor and I’d like to preserve it. I’ve got a long way to go 😂
  8. The dealership was Randall Implement Co. US 50 East Aurora, Indiana. Looking at it, I assume it was just white with red lettering.
  9. So I acquired a ‘61 Farmall 460 that needs a lot of tlc. While I’ve been going over it, I noticed the remnants of the old dealer decals. I can read all the information on one of them, but I don’t know what colors were common on them. Sadly the dealership has closed so no options there. I just thought it would be a nice touch when I get around to restoring it.
  10. Ok guys, thanks for the help, got it running last night. It ended up being a little of everything, sediment in the gas tank plugged up the strainer inlet, bad strainer screen plugged the carb screen. The previous owner tried to get it running, not knowing his mechanical abilities, I tore the carb down. Main jet partially plugged and some of the secondaries completely plugged. Got it back together and she fired right up. Had to leave the choke on a little, I’m wondering about that heat riser on the manifold. The spring is all torn up and mis-shaped. The butterfly is free moving. I’ve got a new spring ordered, but I’m not sure of the correct position. Saw a photo of the spring installed on a 460 on the internet and will use that as a starting point.
  11. Looks like some crud in the fuel strainer neck, no screen in the tank. There is fuel seeping around the inlet fitting, might be drawing air there too. Messed around a little after I got it home, got enough fuel in the carb to drive it off the trailer. I had quite the pile of stuff on the trailer. Farmhand F11 loader, Massey 3 bottom plow, the 460 and a bush hog mower.
  12. I’m going to look at a gas Farmall 460, turns over good, runs good for a short period of time then dies. Besides the usual plugged strainer, or scale plugging the inlet in the tank, what should I look for? Owner claims they have checked and have good spark.
  13. Allstates Ag, they have several salvage yards tractorpartsasap.com
  14. Could be, owner is certain it is a Case. I guess I’m driving 5 hours to see it tomorrow 🤪
  15. Ok, I found an old Case hay rake. Any ideas about the model? Parts availability? Thanks.
