  1. When we’re on corn we usually have 2 dump sites going, one with an 8” auger and the other with a 10”. We’ve got three drake hoppers and a 750 grain cart, running an 8 row head. It’s all we can do to keep up with anything over 200 bushel. Running the augers with super m’s so I’m sure that slows us down a tad.
  2. An auger that big might make J-Mech’s 784 lug a bit
  3. When you get a year with wet corn it takes a little power to run a 10” swing away. Plus these old internationals are just fun to play with. If ppl don’t keep them running there won’t be any around
  4. I know the history on this tractor so I would like to fix it up. My cousins always maintained things. I actually spread lime with it before that guy destroyed it and it ran great. It needs a new seat and a cab kit. All I’m gonna do with it is run an auger in the fall and plow some snow with it. I bought it expecting to put 5 or 6 grand into it
  5. Had a mechanic out today and I have issues in the bottom end. Cam shaft is also going out. Gonna pull the pan and see what we find
  6. I’m just going off of what the neighbor told me had happened. He likes his beer so his memory could be a little fuzzy haha. Rain collar was missing off of the exhaust stack so rain was running down it and rusted a hole in the muffler, turbo bearings feel tight, but idk about the seals. I’ll see what I find on that exhaust valve tomorrow and go from there
  7. I’d say the tractor has between 5,000 to 6,000 hours on it. When the head was off the tops of the pistons looked good, nothing was scored, inside of sleeves looked good too. No brass shavings on oil filters either.
  8. Yes I’m familiar with the injector pump tick on the international engines. I can hold my ear up to the pump and this noise is not the tick coming from the pump. I’ve had quite a few international tractors over the years 806,966,1066,1086,1586,1486. I’m running it with the valve cover off so I can watch the rocker arms and listen. This is a noise that sounds very similar to an injector knock. Obviously it isn’t the injectors though because I just replaced them and primed each line with fuel. I feel like exhaust valve on cylinder 4 is my issue. I will dig into it more tomorrow and let you guys k
  9. I could maybe try tightening the tappet screw down a tad bit on that valve and see if the tick gets any better
  10. I might just go for a lower end rebuild. I don’t really want to tear this back apart in 2 years because I cut corners. Especially after it was ran too hot
  11. I’m not hearing a misfire, it seems to run good besides the ticking. And yes I watched it while it was at idle. Do the worn cam lobes usually destroy the lifters?
  12. Might be time to call in a professional haha
  13. Yeah the only thing I can figure is maybe the lifter causing the noise. I checked my exhaust valves again and they are all at 0.025
  14. Well I just replaced all of the injectors and I still have this ticking sound. I watched all of my rocker arms and I noticed #4 exhaust push rod doesn’t have near as much lift as the other exhaust valves. Wouldn’t the cam lobe be the only thing that would effect the poor lift? The push rod doesn’t seem to be bent or broken either
  15. This past summer I bought a 1486 that my cousins bought new in 77. Before I bought it they let a friend borrow it and he blew it up while using it. It sat for probably 5 or 6 years so I was able to buy it dirt cheap. The engine has never been touched or overhauled. The friend told me that it blew either water or oil out of the exhaust stack and he shut it down right away. So he says. I figured he blew the head gasket and possibly warped the head. I dropped the fluids and oil and water both looked clean. Next I pulled the head and sent it to a machine shop to have it worked over. They told me e
