  1. You don't need to take the cab off to remove the differential.
  2. I put a coleman axle off a 66 series on a 806 years ago . Of course the yoke for the ball and the driveshaft had to be shortened. I had a helper drive the tractor while 1 other person counted the revolutions of the axle yoke. Another person counting the transfer case yoke with the driveshaft off and transfer case engaged. in 100 revolutions I think we were within 1 or 2 turns.

    I did a 3688 years ago using 2 of the 180 degree hoses that connected the air filter to the intake on a 966 along with a short piece of tubing. the tubing may have have been from the 966 setup too .

    Cam bearings are a big wear item in a German diesel. the last one I worked on was in a 574 the oil pressure drop to 7 psi at idle when warm. I removed the tach drive after i had the head off and I put a dial indicator on #1 pushrod. I could lift the cam by the slot in it .017" The cam bearings have to be line bored after installation at a machine shop
  5. I toured the IH tractor and combine plants in 1977. they were building the 453 Hillside combines. That was neat to see them testing them for leaks by leaning the combine to all the extreme positions. I did tour the tractor plant in 1983 when I worked at a dealership. I toured the combine plant again just before it closed. I toured the Deere combine plant on a bank sponsored trip. they sat us in a room with the combine seat and joystick assembly for the seating. a video was shown with a guy starting the combine his brother had bought for the first time. That was a the guy that quit @ my present job and I took his job.
  6. I've never changed the gearing as you want to do but the 2600 rpm tractors also have a spacer plate for the MCV to make the pump gearing correct.
  7. It looks like 560 is written in black grease pencil on the right side under the 60
  8. yes I have seen the spring broken always amazed that the light spring the 86 series used would hold in park.
  9. I didn't notice the tires . I was looking at the woman that unhooked him lol
  10. I would think you could cut the housing down around a 300-560 ta assembly to lose weight. all the drivetrain is on center. The ta clutch part is dry so the only part that would need the oil contained would be the rear section though i'm not sure how you would couple to the output shaft gear. the belt pulley drive gear could be machined off to create a seal surface.
  11. If used to buy bushings for a 686 they fit the shaft without reaming.
  12. I forgot to say when working in the cab unscrew the steering wheel telescope nut completely so you can pull the wheel out and get it out of the way
  13. No need to remove the seat from the cab.The seat and the base assembly can be be removed by taking out the 5 3/8" bolts holding the base to the cab 2 bolts in front 3 in the rear.you need 3 feet of extensions to reach the back bolts.Open the rear window and lay 2 layers of cardboard on the cab panel behind the seat and out the rear window area so the seat can be lifted up up and layed back out the rear window.lift the seat and base up and towards the front of the tractor 4 inches first the you can tip the seat back and lift if out onto the rear panel. Use should be able to feel if the detent spring and rollers are in place by moving the shifter. The shifter should click into the detent position.You need a special puller tool to pull the range cover up off the reverse shaft and and special tool to hold the detent arms while reinstalling. if you don't use the puller to remove the cover you will pull the reverse shift shaft out of the reverse shift fork. this will require removal of the auxiliary fuel tank and then the side cover to reassemble. I used to vee out the top of the hi-low shifter shaft and the shifter arm and weld the 2 together, then grind the weld flat so the bolt could be installed again. very common for the bolt to come loose.
  14. I made some spacers out of old 263 sleeves . It was probably 30 years ago when I couldn't find the overbore sleeves. It worked for a couple years till the tractor burned
  15. I'll say that they look like the're in great shape.
