  1. Your a wee bit tight. The high rpm race stuff you can get away with ~.040 with a steel rod for quench. I am about that tight on my 263/291 build about .020 out of hole with a .060 gasket. You could probably get away for alittle while but get a soot build up WHICH YOU WILL and you could create a knock which could eventually drive a rod bearing out of it. Scott
  2. A press fit overbored sleeve can be a acceptable repair. There is enough surface above and below the crack to eliminate water seepage. Many antique numbers matching blocks have been saved this way. You need to weigh the repair cost vs. the cost of a replacement block. IH did issue a bulletin regarding caution overboring .060 on the C301's. I have never personally witnessed one with issues but have taken atleast a half dozen blocks out to 4.00 or +.1875 without issues. Scott
  3. Ford tractors were built in Highland Park, MI till around 197x then Romeo, MI till 1988.
  4. Many years ago, I cut wood with a buddy using my dad's old Homelite on a hot summer day. My buddy had a Stihl MS310, well after seeing how effortless it cut and how much lighter it was. I went out and bought me one. It's been a great saw I cut a lot of wood and downed alot of trees.
  5. Trufuel 50:1 sometimes I can get it it on sale. I tell myself I don't burn that much but this year used almost 2 cans or was it 3? Clear cutting my back yard.
  6. Oh how I want to build one just like it for my new garage storage! Very Nice!
  7. The racing manufacturers and OEM'S I'm sure know exactly what the rpms they are turning. I have heard some of the newer rings rotating at a rate of 2-5 rpm. If you nick a cylinder, egg shape bore, or carbonize a ring land this could restrict rotation.
  8. At one time the gas replacement program was requiring sending the old one in. Or maybe I am confused CRS.
  9. Yes most utilities used a non vented cap. My dad went though this on his 656. As you can see in the first picture posted the tube that acts as the vent. Don't send that cap in! You will not get it back! Your best bet is find a used cap off a utility 404, 504, 444, 544, 656 should be correct.
  10. The 460/560/H-M housing has weakness for transferring torque between the bull pinion and final drives. It uses the top cover to reinforce the rear-end as without would drive the 2 shafts apart breaking the rear end. I have witnessed this in a NA pulling application on a 460 rear end without the cover effectively breaking the rear end, the solution was run a portion of the top cover, after replacement of the rear housing. The 656 rear end housing has a cast tower part of the rear end around the bull pinion and much greater webbing area effectively eliminating this weakness. Scott
  11. Can you link the bulb link please? Search did not come up even with corrected PN. Thanks, Scott
  12. This seems to be a issue with the early ones. Mine falls on the battery every once in a blue moon. I used lots of grease and in the past it has prolonged it. I plan to locktite it also next time but good luck for future service.
  13. Our old 1959 F460 from way back...a warmed over 282NA out to 430cid with spark plugs turn 6700rpm. This one was serial 7K and at one point in its life had the bull gear come through the rear end housing it was patched and brazed. Always was partial to the styling of the 60 series. Scott
  14. Someday I will have a full house Generac on NG. Having a couple quotes but I think most I can sub or do myself... One thing I will do is because my utilities and generator will all be in the corner of the house close by. I will run the battery in the basement a dry cell or AGM. No point of it being in the hot or cold or having a battery heater in the winter...the one guy I had quote it said they don't recommend as this would void the warranty😄
  15. Ok that absolutely sucks! I would be livied! I would be on every career site applying even during my customer support time even if was a separate personal computer! So now I'm really curious on what company this is? I know you dropped a hint. PM sent! Scott
  16. Ditto...can't go wrong with a Honda!
  17. And yet where are the $20 beans and $10 corn? I'm about to leave my small crop of sad beans in the field. The **** with it!
  18. Looks like the clutch manufacturers hub does not follow the OEM spec of flush fit on the flywheel side. I would be looking for a different disc or be contacting the clutch manufacturer.
  19. Firestone Destination AT
  20. 2 years ago any lawyer would win a client a pile of money against any corporation or business in a case like this. Unfortunately today we live in a different world and it appears that the new law will side with the corporation or appears that is the way the pendulum is swinging. I don't agree with it but that is what I see and it has changed fast. Robert you will hopefully find something better but trust me there are many many stories like yours. Scott
  21. As we settled into our new home last year I finally set up my 1/16 scale collection up. Probably my favorite is the CIH 1/16 combine. My wife as a city girl really likes them too. Cleaning up in the kitchen. On display...
  22. Trying to keep this IH related... I live in the suburbs with 2.2 acres moved in last year. Part of the appeal was I could build up to a 1600 Sq ft or 40x40 garage. I have given verbal approval that this will not be a problem. The issue I now face as I start to get into details is the height restriction of 16'. With 10' walls this puts me a 3x12 pitch. I am going to obviously seek a variance to 20' which would give me a 5x12. This would also easily allow my planned 2 post 12' Atlas car lift, the 656 will fit under the 8.5' door. I still may do scissor trusses to get enough vertical. My question is should I approach the township board pleading about the low pitch and excessive maintenance, advice fro over time and or disclose about the car lift as well, advice from the builder ect. Advise is usually great on the forum and any and all is welcome I wish there was still a area for this type of subject... Thanks, Scott
  23. Pretty interesting stuff, love to have those bins in my new shop. They are selling off everything including the bins. Wonder what happened? Scott
  24. Including height? 1" lower hitch height can make a world of difference. If it is the old factory drawbar most are bent. A fixed clevis shimmed with washers can also keep the hook higher as the clevis does sag under load, the twisted clevis is also a advantage as it sits higher then a conventional clevis and that can be shimmed rigid with washers too. I prefer cut steel plates that are adjustable by moving the bolt locations forward or back, off the drawbar depending on track conditions. It seems like your drawbar was to low. So either you need to raise it as much as the rule book allows or make a hitch that sits back farther that allows weigh transfer off the front end to the rear tires. Scott
  25. 3 rings are modern as compared to 4 rings, I have a Ford farm stock pulling engine 401cid where I left the 4th ring out. With metallurgy advancements rings have become thinner as they conform to the bore better under bore distortion. There are companies that offer ring spacers to utilize a thinner ring in a existing wider ring land piston. Total Seal is my go to for my ring needs, they seem to be the leader in cutting edge technology. Scott
