  1. I had a real nice C70 with I believe the 225 horse turbo 8.2 and a 6 speed Spicer trans. Pulled a big enclosed race car trailer with it for several years. Never any trouble and actually pulled decent for the time.
  2. 180 stat helps these 8100's with oil consumption and also seems to perk them up a little. Now living in the arctic it may want a 195, but here in Indiana I've done several with noticeable improvement.
  3. It has a radiator cap, it's just on the overflow tank instead of the radiator.
  4. 8.1's have a rubber seal on the thermostat so no gaskets to worry about. I have switched several over to 180 degree stats which seems to help them. I agree with the others, start with the fan clutch.
  5. My 76 1486 has the chrome tach. Makes you wonder.....
  6. Dont believe this is true. My 1486 is a 76 model and has the deep steel box like a black stripe had. Have seen several others the same way. There is a video out there of serial number 1 1486 with the deep steel box. Also looks like 1086 number 1 has the steel box.
  7. Factory 1206 specific top link
  8. Not all 1206's got the claw end. There was a serial number break where the claw went away and the ball end was used.
  9. New cable helped my 1486 a ton. Shifts like a dream now after a t/a adjustment.
  10. Great series. Go to PBS.org and watch from there. The app seems to use a ton of data. I watch on my TV thru the phone.
  11. Backspacing and offset are different measurements. Offset is from the center of the rim.
  12. Key could still be sheared in the gear on the mcv. I've seen them where you couldn't tell till you pulled the gear. Put a load on the pump and the gear would slip.
  13. There are tons of pulling tractors out there at 540+ using a 466 block(not the 530 block). Just because you don't believe it doesn't make it any less true. Granted it may not be with stock parts, but it's done every day.
  14. Not a different block. Lots of tractor pullers at 570 with a DT466 block.
