  1. I went up and looked at the wheels today, and yes, the third type of lock is actually a wedge lock that does not have the horseshoe bracket on it. Tonight after the nephew got home from work, he put a socket on the center bolt, and he said it come loose with hardly any effort, so obviously it was not tightened enough, or had worked loose. this weekend we will jack it up and move it in. Thanks again for everyone's help.
  2. Again, thank you very much for your help. Will definitely get right on it.
  3. I'm surprised Paul's is still around. they were a really good chrome shop 40 years ago.
  4. Stronger 800, yes, we need to loosen the lock and move the wheel in where it should be. Have not done, because I thought we needed something else to do it. If you would, What is the proper procedure for loosening the lock with the horse shoe piece on it? Thank you for your help.
  5. That's what I say, the 1066, 100 Hydro, and 966 all have a different lock. The nephew say's there is a third style on one, but I did not look for it.
  6. Of the three big tractors, all of them have a different type of wheel lock from side to side. Was this a normal production thing, or over the years have they been monkeyed with? On the 966, it also has two different type's of wheel locks. This is the one on the left side. Appears to be pretty straight forward. This is the one on the right side. If you noticed, the one on the right is much further out on the axle than the left. This is not intentional, it has been slowly walking it's way out. There has been many discussions on here about needing the specia
  7. Sounds good. Thank you for your help.
  8. I was out brush hogging today with the 574 (gas), and was wondering about the hydraulic temperature. I am running a 7' single spindle 3pt brush hog, mowing pasture(2-3 ft tall grass, not real dense like a hay field). I was running mostly low 4th, about 2000 rpm. Tractor has loader bucket on it and underslung exhaust. It was also 85 deg. out. Front of grill was open and not plugged up. When I was mowing, and if I stood up, my legs were back against the sheet metal under the seat, and it seemed quite warm. I mowed for about 6 hours, and when I put it back in the shed, I could not keep
  9. If you ever go to Yosemite in CA, watch when you go. It's normal to set in traffic jams on the freeway, but I never expected it in a national park. Waaaaay too many people to ruin such a nice thing.
  10. No idea how this is setup, but it's not something dumb like it's missing the tension spring off of the throttle linkage?

    Depends on what your into. Frick Museum has some cars and carriages, Meadowcroft Village, HJ Heinz Museum downtown. Penguins are out, so nothing there. I haven't been down around there for sometime. There used to be some interesting ethnic activities and neighborhoods. There used to be a regatta boat races and the classic car races thru I think Sewickley, but they are probably later on. Beaver Springs Dragway is an old school 1/4 mile east of Pittsburgh. They are having some kind of todo this weekend. Jet cars Sunday night.

    TP1066, I can not find anything on this, where is there info? Thank you.
  13. I live in NW PA about an hour east of you. Our first tractor was 656 hydro gas, nf, still have it. For years that was our main tractor, now there are 966, 100 hydro, 1066S, all over kill for what we do. Wonderful tractors. but more than we need. We don't try to make a living at it, and mostly make square bales on about 80 acres. If your planning on doing a lot of plowing and such, then yea, go with something a little more solid, but that 656 has been a wonderful tractor, and is usually the first one to get used for something. A front loader is a great piece of equipment, but they to
  14. A couple of weeks ago, I was down at Lebanon PA, and saw the guys mowing this and had no idea what it was. Went by one day and they were mowing the heck out of it, next day all gone. Learned something new today.
  15. If it's trying to start, sounds to me like fuel. There is a solenoid hanging out the bottom of your carb at an angle. If you unscrew that out, it will show if there is any gas in the bowl. You can also check it to make sure it is working and not plugged. If you turn the key off and on, you should hear it click each time. That is the solenoid pushing the plunger in and out. If you unscrew it out, plug it back in, and you can ground the body against something and watch it operate. If you take it out and the bowl is full of gas, then it is working alright. Have you done anything fuel re
  16. Your coil isn't getting hot is it? Have had this before.
  17. Thank you for the reply's. On the clutch pedal, I had to take it off and grease the shaft and bore. On the brake side, I have the earlier serial number, but the drawing still shows a zerk. Looking at your picture, I do not have it. I think the hole may be there, I assumed it was the cross pin holding the pedal on. I obviously need to dig a little closer. Thank you again for your help.
  18. I like how they have gone to the "On" & "Off" on the ratchet. Wonder when it will be lefty loosey, righty tighty. I think I would be worried if your mechanic brought that out and used it.
  19. I am working on my master cylinders and notice the shaft that the clutch and brake pedals are on could use some grease. Problem is, I dont see a zirk on it anyware. Am I missing it, or do you actually have to tear it apart to gtease it? Thank you for your help.
  20. Our biggest local fair has already announced that they will not have any grandstand events, including pulls. Sigh, here we go again. Hopefully we can find some this year.
  21. A little off topic, but I worked in a tool and Die shop. We had big tables for laying out the prints for the molds. The table I used to use, had a 4' x 8' sheet of aluminum, and inscribed on it was a dashboard for a 60's something Dodge truck. Rather than a paper blueprint, it was on a sheet of aluminum. No idea what happened to it, I was out of state when that building was flattened and a new one built. Probably be pretty unique to have these days.
  22. I live in Pennsylvania in the north east. I drive out to southern California to visit and back. Driving pretty solid during the day and only stopping for gas, it takes me 4 days out, and 5 days back (you have 4 time zones across this country). So, that's a week for 2500 miles one way, and you don't really see anything. Just to give you an idea. New England is nice, but you could spend 3 weeks there easy. Lancaster area of Pennsylvania as mentioned above, is very nice. There is a lot to see east of the Mississippi river. West of that, it opens up quite a bit. Grand Canyon always amazes me
  23. This is a 1466 that is for sale near me. I know you guys are always interested in cab, open station, rops, but I have not seen one like this in your conversations. Is this a factory option, or was this after market? Just curious.
  24. When I was living in SoCal, I bought a parts cleaner from HF, and they had some water based, nature friendly cleaner for it. I put that stuff in it, and it just ate all the paint off the inside of that tank and turned it to a heavy solid rust, in about a week. Never did get to try it.
  25. It's sad what we used to take for granted is slowly disappearing in the name of progress. A few years ago, the wife and I were over in Wales on the coast. We stayed the night in this wonderful little village that sat in this cove, with a beautiful view of the ocean. Only problem, about a mile out, there were so many wind machines that you couldn't see the ocean past them. As if there there isn't some place out of sight to build those things.
