    Isaacson Hydraulic Connectors

    True, but I want to get rid of every possible connection (and possible leak). I'll unscrew everything that will turn with a wrench or pipe wrench. A local shop will put two ends on a piece of hose, one that swivels---done! Four identical setups and the job is complete. Vic

    Isaacson Hydraulic Connectors

    Got it! Thanks, guys. I'm starting to get the picture without dismantling the lines. I've just got to decide how far I want to go to clear up some leaks in the connections. There are quite a few connectors, unions, etc. between the hoses and their destinations. There has to be a swivel on one end of each hose. Now I can figure it all out. Vic

    Isaacson Hydraulic Connectors

    ray54, I don't quite understand what you're saying. Can I tighten that connection? While there are four of them on the setup one is leaking. I didn't want to take it apart until I understood how it worked. What is it clamping? Those bolts look pretty tight. I visualized some kind of plug in with a seal or gasket of some kind. Where are the threads? I'm thinking of bypassing all of those connections and building up hoses to go from pipe to pipe.
  4. Does anyone recognize this hydraulic connector for the Isaacson blade on my TD-14? I'm wondering if there is a seal or gasket between this thing and the piece it's connected to. I'm reluctant to take it apart because right now it just leaks---if I mess with it and break it I'm not going to run down to the store & buy another one.

    Cleaning Tractors

    For you folks who like scenic photos, here' one I just took out of our kitchen window. They're not tractors but I love 'em!

    Cleaning Tractors

    Here's a quote from Purple Power Support discussing the use of Purple Power: "No, it will most likely dissolve the paint. Purple Power Cleaner/Degreaser is not a car wash and we do not recommend that you use it on painted surfaces".

    That's just a shot of the 270+ deg. view I have from my front deck.

    Cleaning Tractors

    I guess I was lucky in that department. Our '39 Farmall A arrived the same year that I did. It wasn't touched until I brought it from New York to Washington State & restored it a few years ago.

    Oil Filters

    Perfect! I think I've used this site years ago. Now I have it marked. Thanks!

    Oil Filters

    Can someone convert the oil filters & gaskets numbers from a TD-14 and a TD-14A to WIX part numbers? I have both tractors. Also, does each tractor take two of the same part numbered filters?

    Cleaning Tractors

    I guess I'll find out how good my spray paint is.

    Cleaning Tractors

    I've got a commercial steam cleaner that would do anything from wet the grease to wipe the whole tractor clean. I used spray cans for the restoration---is that considered "good paint"?

    Cleaning Tractors

    What is a good way to clean oil & grease from a restored tractor. My -39 Farmall Cultivision A looks great except for a few "leaks" here & there. The first time I used gasoline & it cleaned the grease plus the paint.

    TD-14 Injector Nozzle Body

    I like that idea! I hope there's no "next time" but, if so I'll be ready. Vic

    TD-14 Injector Nozzle Body

    Here's my idea of a puller. It's a 4" x 4" x1/4" steel plate with holes 2" apart to line up with the injector mount holes. It sits on the injector body studs. I pulled the injector body up until it hit the bottom of the plate. I then beat it back down & pulled it up again two or three more times until it was loose enough to pry out with a couple of screwdrivers. I used lots of brake cleaner and by the way---the studs were not damaged.
