  1. As J-Mesh showed in the exploded view #11 is the storage flipper I was referring to. My 244 has the same feature, the owners manual covers this, I guess for long term storage it is to keep the clutch depressed to eliminate exactly what you are experiencing. Can't say I ever used it though but mine is kept in a dry environment, and used often.
  2. To the point about the PTO, this is not live power. This maybe a 3 person job, with tractor off. Wrench on front crank shaft holding engine. One on seat depressing clutch or use storage flipper to keep clutch depressed. Third person on pto use adapter with pry bar to turn pto. It may come free. Scott
  3. This a Hy Capacity kit that is now NLA. It really is a extension with some studs. I forget but I think some utility used the larger filter? If you look at my recent engine build thread, I cover the filter upgrade in the archived thread linked in post 1. I did some other things to enhance flow in the filter... Yes these are known for hydraulic whining. Mine did it but particularly due to filter conditions and even bypass conditions. It has the higher capacity 17gpm pump, I believe this was once a loader tractor. You sure can tell the power of the 3pt and ps with it in good working order. So as far as the nose it is actually bolted to a hydro 70 bolster, that was replaced due to a leaking lower seal, a guy was salvaging one with extremely low hours and could not beat the price. I did originally have the nose bolted to the 656 bolster, it bolted right up. Same 656 hood, same frame rails. I changed the white and red side panels at the same time or later, I don't remember. The only modification was I had to drill a hole so my pins for the 656 badges could stick through into the casting. The 666/686 had decals so no need for those holes. Thanks!
  4. I do that too! My 2014 F150 is 46K and is parked for the winter!
  5. Oil coating does wonders, been doing this for almost 15 years. Had a 94 ford F150 in Michigan that it virtually stopped the rust, after blasting and painting the underside. I never did any body work when I sold it in 2014 and it looked pretty good. Canada was doing most of the work till recently, I prefer Oil Guard but as already mentioned there are Krown places in Michigan now.
  6. Some real rough times, as I recall you elaborated on this before with the differences between you and your dad.
  7. Deep in Automotive industry here not to far from the Motor City. I grew up in a small town north in the Thumb of Michigan. Always tinkered with cars, motorcycles, tractors growing up, still do. A couple of years out of high school I Studied Mechanical Engineering at the community College while working full time for a Engineering firm. I eventually finished my degree going part time, working full time. Today I manage a group of engineers in vehicle benchmarking, I love my job. I also farm a 5 acres of cash crop, just so I don't forget my roots. Scott
  8. I updated my side panels on my 1966 656. I also went beyond the bar grille and put a 666/686 nose on. Its all bolt on.

    IH guard dog?

    So I crammed my 244 my 2 car garage as it is ready for snow plowing. Its funny looking through the little door you see the grille of this. Maybe it will deter burglars?? I hope to build my garage soon!
  10. I'm almost ready, just looking for a polly edge for my freshly repainted king cutter 6'. I also ordered some IH decals to look like a IH blade from the 80's.
  11. Here is the difference between the 3 single exhaust pipes my original is slightly smaller then 2-1/4. This proves the theory bigger is not always better.
  12. No I modified that manifold by milling the top flat and putting a hole in that location. The lower plate has a divider that splits the manifold, based on the firing order you are always firing back and forth. I guess the issue was to transition from a log to pipe and to pick up or maintain velocity in this transition. This is a pic of a split Stovebolt manifold, I know they do the same with Chrysler. I was trying to find improvement while keeping the stock manifolds for the farm class. A lot of time and some wasted material for nothing but, seeing is believing.
  13. Final wrap up day! Its done! I drilled the main jet from the previous time .070 to .082. I also opened up the idle jet from .028 to .033. I tried one last time on the split exhaust set up and just could not find the hp, down about 5hp. Ended up trying different pipe sizes from my 2-1/8, 2-1/4 and 2-1/2 on the single exhaust, did find a couple hp without the muffler go figure. Any guesses what made the most hp? Last weekend I straightened and pulled the fenders, this was a nicer set I traded. Less rust. Sorry no pics, I used the same method as covered in my previous thread linked in post one.
  14. Try Fawcett tractor in St Marys, ON. Wengers of Myerstown shows online they have the 31 t gear.
  15. I would not if engine is completely stock, the combine was a hydro and never seen the torque load. The tractor however seen hard torque loads due to gear drive. You can make compression changes, cam and cool the intake by splitting it from exhaust. It will then handle that carb pretty easily, but you would then easily be over 100hp even without it. A interesting note based on a recent pull of documents off the net Nebraska tests the 806 (301) and late 706 (291) used the same venturi size 1-3/8. Actually come to think of it I think dad is running one on his 301 in his 656 it is not that impressive in stock form.
  16. Did some routine maintenance and adjusted the valves. And finally did the manifold swap to try my split manifold concept. So far it does not like the small tubes. I am using 1-1/8 & 1-1/4 for the primary and 1-1/2 & 1-3/4. The smallest one I tried lost a bunch, like 10-12 hp. The bigger one is giving up about 5hp. I need a gain to make this worth while. I am going to try the bigger pipes next 1-1/2 & 1-3/4 and possibly even 2".
  17. Coating is heat barrier on exhaust ports and combustion chambers this is the same benefits as aluminum heads for the car guys. I knew trying to run more compression and 87 octane was a risk. This was the recipe to eliminate detonation. There was some port work done, I knocked the rough areas down on the intake and exhaust. I also worked the short turn radius on the intake ports just blending and smoothing, this was a learned benefit from the past on this particular head. We changed some of the seat angles and I will keep that to myself on what we changed. Depending on the type of usage which in my case, field use you have to keep in mind through this whole process this is on a governor and most time the throttle shaft is just cracked open when engine is light loaded. So the added benefits to larger ports or larger valves will not help, also there are some mistakes on this head and manifold that create some poor inefficiencies. You want velocity and good fuel mixing! Yes I did not go into detail but everything was balanced, crank, rods, pistons, balancer, flywheel and pressure plate. Yes pto dyno was a bit old but does the job he says it leaks a bit of oil... Thanks I hope and expect it to last the rest of my life! Scott
  18. Dyno video uploaded to YouTube. Link on YouTube
  19. Today was dyno day! We broke it in to seat everything. Doing the 30%-%50-%100-%30 load process. Could not be more pleased! 90hp at 540pto. It was sitting at 85 for a most of this then at the end I bumped the timing 2 degrees advanced and it jumped 5hp. It might make alittle more with some more fuel if I drill out the jet. It will be backed down about 10hp for field work it runs alittle cleaner and will make less trips to the fuel barrel. Not bad for 87 octane and stock 656 carb. I will upload a video later from YouTube. Scott
  20. Jeez thats nuts! Look at that a cat 2 top link is bringing $110. It was not that long ago I picked up a top link for a 1206 for $150.
  21. I bought the extension plate and gasket for my 656 year ago before they went out of business, because I'm running the 17 gpm pump. I also tore the outer paper off the filter because I felt it restricted the filter. I assume this was there to stop large debris like straw and chunks of metal? To me the pleats do a good job of that, any way I covered throughly in my 656 restoration/rebuild thread,the filter details are covered in the original thread linked in my first post. Scott
