  1. Plow tire size

    When we ordered the 710 plows new for stock we ordered them equipped with 6x15 rims then put on any decent used car tires we found the other option was a 8x14 rim with a factory mounted 9.5L -14 implement tire.
  2. Wire Harness

    ,It will not be a cost savings if you want it to look correct if you don't care about originality most any auto parts store can supply you with rolls of wire, crimp on terminals, and convoluted loom. But It will look patched together even if you do a neat job To have it look original you will have to go to the auto wireing specialty suppliers purchase rolls of wire in all the different colors and sizes needed, rolls or lengths of woven loom, in different sizes, packages of the correct terminals, and packages of the correct plasitic connecters the terminals fit in then a couple of rubber boots. you will probably end up with almost enough stuff to do a half dozen harnesses minus one or two pieces.
  3. Farmall M Front Wheel Bolts

    Parts book lists 21/32 x 1 5/16 13 ga is that sae ? Your turn to educate me ! I prefer the thicker narrower type that is not so hard the lock washer can't bite in.
  4. Dt 407 overhaul kits

    What's with this reliance rod bolt thing? I had not heard about it before what's the theory on the bolts failing?
  5. 450 power steering stoped working

    What type of power steering do you have factory or after market? If it factory do you have good power steering if you hold the remote lever on demand and lug down the engine? If you do the flow divider is giving you problems , if not the problem is more than likely the behlen assist unit Aftermarket it depends on which setup you have we could use more information , good luck .
  6. I had a couple of brain farts on my last post and couldn't get back in for a day or so to correct them filter number is 113940c1 for a 4366 Fleetgaurd HF 6024 I apologize for screwing things up.

    OEM was flat washer, lockwasher, and nut.
  8. 656 surging?

    656s were kind of trouble some for surging I do not know what was so drastically different about that carb to the 560 carb which seemed to have a lot less trouble, because the 656 had more of a tendency to surge, it seems the throttle shaft and bushings wore out fairly often check that also. with patience and attention to every little detail you will get it smoothed out.
  9. Forum issues

    TODAY I can get my RED POWER fix been on a terrible withdrawal !
  10. If clearance is an issue and you want to add filtration why not use the hydraulic filter from a 4386 PN 113910c1 it 9 inches long vs 6 1/8 for the standard 06-56 hydraulic filter. That is what ALLIED uses when they make extensions for the 1566-1586 tractors where the final drive is in the way one heck of a lot simpler than screwing around trying to jam two filters in a housing and it does not stick out so dang far The filter is also available from Fleetgaurd as HF6054
  11. 2+2 from concept to the field

    I remember butting up against an ALLIS it might have been with a 6588 I do not remember how close to the 50 series introduction the awd tractor was available it wasn't right of way but I do remember we sure as **** were not going to order one for stock at the time because of the interest that was accruing on the 50 series inventory already on hand. Interest now is 1/3 to 1/2 of what it was back then can you imagine how fast dealers would bail out now if they had to pay 18 to 23 percent on there new and used floor plan thats why they dropped like flies back then. I still have some old invoices for interest due from IHCC ( IH finance arm which carried the floor plan on inventory) in the back of the file They are there to remind me what can happen.
  12. Gear oil question

    Back when that manual was printed I don't think CASIH offered any thing but 85w -140 so it probably was a default thing. Times have changed

    What part of the world are you in?
  14. 2+2 from concept to the field

    What was built was sold . look what IH had to offer to a customer that wanted a 130 hp front assist row crop tractor A 1086 with an elwood . We were butting our heads up against ALLIS 8000 series and JD 40 series Farmers in general did not buy front assist tractors in that 100 to 175 hp row crop units in great numbers back then in any brand, that came about 5-10 years later now it seems everything but a lawn mower is front assist . In areas where the average tractor size was up to 150 hp the 2+2 did well where the small Versatile and Steigers were the big tractor the 2+2 was not what the dealer should have been pushing. Front wheel assist 50 to 5488 were a tough sell until the fire sale in 84-85 Rick did you see a lot of 86 series front assist out in that time period ? Back then when we had a customer ask about a front assist in this area I think the 2+2 captured a pretty good share of a very slim market
  15. WFE interchange

    the height of the rear support is different by a couple of inches you would have to add a spacer plate so the mount would clear the pan usually the pin is wore enough o the saddles would mount up if your off a little on the correct height. width is ok, the standard 460 hubs will not fit 400 spindles you don't say if you are using oem hubs on your current wide front but do yourself a favor and get a wide front that accepts the 560 row crop hubs the big bearing in a standard 460 row crop wide front is the same as the small bearing in a 560 hub rim bolt patters are the same wide fronts from 06 -1256 will also fit but the outer steering arms are shorter and that can give you some complications if you would rather not find a different wide front A&I offers a hub to use on that 400 spindle to accept standard 6 bolt wheels if you need to I could help you with hubs and I have a couple of the correct saddles on the shelf.
