    656 earlier closest relative.

    The 656 was the most ambitious tractor in it's work class!

    Farmall M / W6 carb queston

    The top screw going in on an angle is the idle mixture adjusting screw. Some carbs for some reason or another will weep gas there.. it's not going to cause a problem. It could be from a high float level, or a partially plugged passage inside causing the idle well to run extra high at part throttle. From the picture though, it looks like your main adjusting needle is in a bit far. The one at the bottom going in horizontal from the front. Turn it in until it lightly seats then turn it out 1.5 to 2 turns. Then on the top screw, seat it and turn it out 1/2 turn and see if that cures the hesitation.
  3. Hi George! Would you happen to know why Oliver always insisted on setting the engine and entire driveline on an incline in relation to the rest of the tractor? Even the rear axle housings where the fenders or cab mount are on that angle. It just seems like a lot of extra engineering and setup for machining. If I recall though, the 2-135 through 2-180 were in flat though.. I really like White tractors.. look great, drive great, but a real pain to work on! As was mentioned, an old design with modern stuff added on many times.... takes some digging to get to the component needing serviced some times. Still light years better than an Allis of the same era! haha Darryn

    IH856 12V Dual Battery Help

    Both positive cables being on the solenoid post is the best way to go. On solenoids with a short terminal I have used these long joining nuts. Use the nut to hold the first cable, and a bolt into the back of the nut to attach the second cable. My local hardware store carries them.

    Another IH Related Modelling Project!

    ....also, it was mentioned making a model of one of the Iron Ore ships. well, hopefully soon! I am planning on an HO scale model of The International... made of sheet metal and steel! I have been collecting countless photos of her as she sailed under her many names over her career. Too many things on the go right at the moment though. In case you missed it last year, I did paint a large 4' cutout of her from 3/4" plywood.. it hangs on the wall in my shop. Thanks for the interest in my projects!

    Hi guys! Sorry I am late to the replies.. Hillman posted a link to steamers owned by IHC... well, I made a couple of those too! haha

    Another IH Related Modelling Project!

    Thanks! I would imagine that it handled all shunting duties around the plant.. from receiving raw materials to putting long trainloads of new implements together. It would have been great to see in person. Luckily I have a few friends that did get to see it in person.

    Hi Folks! Thanks for the kind words on my project. Here is a little video that I put together with the boys running it on our little layout. I think it's pretty cute!

    flu fires always in the back of my mind

    Could be, but I am sure you could find another brand somewhere. I am still going to sweep and fully clean out the chimney and woodstove at least once a year, but this stuff definitely helps with creosote buildup, and will promote better heating.

    Thanks for the kind words... I used a limited edition Proto Series 2000. It runs very nice and smooth on the track.

    flu fires always in the back of my mind

    This stuff works great! I used to turn the flue damper back and forth to break the creosote in the damper, but now there is none! Just sprinkle a capful on a low hot fire every couple of days.

    Another IH Related Modelling Project!

    I just finished customizing this HO scale ALCO S1 to resemble the one that IH used at the Hamilton, Ontario plant. A very tedious project, but it turned out pretty good. This particular loco, #308 was built in 1946... and after changing hands a few times, I have found it to still be in service for the New York and Lake Erie RR!! Here's a picture, and a link to view pictures of the build. Happy New Year!

    Dt407 rebuild problem

    That shaft is only supposed to go in one way! The tang is offset.

    Dt407 rebuild problem

    Pump timing on a Roosa Master does not get installed 180* out like the later Model 100 pumps on the 300, 400 series. A common problem I have encountered on the Roosa pump is the fuel control helix becomes gummed up and won't come out of shut off position. It is accessible under the pump top cover. Undo the throttle linkage and actuate the control by hand at the pump to see that everything is moving freely. The control helix shaft is near the rear in the center with a little arm on it. A good washing with penetrating oil is usually all they need>
