  1. I’m guessing you have bad fuel in the fuel system and the pump is sticking that’s why it’s not pumping fuel . I’m not sure what this motors have for a pump . Danny
  2. I have a couple new ones sitting on the self but I think there for a 400 series motor and I’m sure they are longer , if you can get me the measurements from center to center for the bolts holding it to the block . If you have no choice but to fix it you can put the style ones we have on out big pulling tractors and I have an extra one of those I could lone you or you can just make one to , it’s just two flat plates that bolt to the block and round pipe , not a big deal to make it . Send me a pm if you want and I will try and help you . ‘Danny
  3. I just seen that , must of been left over casts wheels from the 66 series . There was some roll over of inventory back then so it got used up and those units sometimes went out to the public or back to Hinsdale and scraped . ‘Danny
  4. That is awesome Tony , Josh is a really nice young man , it’s great to see the younger folks saving the history and having fun doing it ?? Danny
  5. Everything went good last night , it was a test and tune for us . There is always remembering everything so you do it all right , moving weights around , air psi in rear tires, oh and make you have everything full /full of fuel !! Oh well nothing hurt other than our pride ?? everything loaded on the trailer so it was good , until this coming weekend weekend ?? Danny
  6. Here is our 1086 , It’s the first one off the line , sn#8601 This tractor would of done the photo shoots , the show tour back in the day and then was sold ofut of Hinsdale Engineering to a dealer just northwest of the Quad Cities . I tried to track down the original owner and when I found out who he was it was to late , he was in a nursing home and passed away . Danny
  7. We just finished this yesterday for my good friend , it got some upgrades for the 2021 season , complete new front frame with air ride and I built all new weight frames , electric hood tilt ,painted the the hoods , frame . ‘This pulls in the Pro Farm Class 9500/10,000 lbs class , 466 cu in , 3x3 turbo , P pump
  8. Nothing wrong with that Tom?? Danny
  9. My nephew has one and he used to ride fields with it , not sure if he uses it anymore , I can ask him if he would sell it . Danny
  10. Hope your son turns out good , the ball park is really nice ? Danny
  11. I just got done with this project today , took out about 1 acre of trees , cleaned it at up with the land plane and seeded it with the old trusty IH 620 drill that we converted to use on my skidloader . The land plane just got its 3 reinforcement job , that skidloader is just plane mean on it ??? I took it to another job this afternoon and did some finish work around a new pond I built and hit a cut off stump , it passed the test , Danny hit the front window /plastic ? all good ?? Danny
  12. Matt , I pre delivered the last new 1586 at our dealership that looked just like the one in the picture , our customer bought two that time , a new 786 open station and and the 1586 with western interior . Here is the best part of this story , the guy still has them and there sitting in the shed he built for them and there brand new and he gets them out a couple times a year and runs them and puts them back in the shed . He was all red on his farm and was retiring early and bought these as an investment I’m guessing was his plan , I’m thinking it was a good one ?? ‘Danny
  13. 4 of us built this track , along with more donated help with trucks hauling clay , donated road grader guy , the list is endless . At the end of the day we have a few sponsors so instead of 4 of us paying out of our own pocket to put these pulls on so everyone can have fun if we are lucky we break even ? I have done a lot around this area to promote pulling and I really enjoy it and we are getting some of the girls pulling now and as you can see in the pictures there pulling the 10,500 lbs up ?? We have talked about having a tractor pulling training day to get more folks involved in pulling , just need to come up with something simple so we can simulate a load with out having a sled . Danny
  14. The disk is a 10 ft IH wheel disk that we converted so I can push it , it works great , you can put down pressure on it and it really cuts . Be careful of the rocks , those old blades don’t like that big skid loader , I will need to replace some blades . We have about 24” of clay on this track and we have had guys tell me it’s the best track around and it’s as good if not better than most NTPA tracks . We run two packers and I run my skid loader with that 8 ft wide land plane that we built . The day before the pull we disk it open and water it it with a big tank with a pump and flood it pretty good , disk in the water and pack it with our packers , land plane it and then one of our road grader guys stops down for a finish on the top . Depending on what the weather is doing for rain depends on the amount of water we put down . After a few years of doing this we have it down . Steve , that is a 1066 and I built it in my shop , my good friends wife is running it in the powder puff , we are trying to get the girls pulling and it’s working well , those gals can drive them ?? Danny
  15. I’m in charge of the dirt at our track so I run down to our track 3 miles from my shop and did alittle track maintenance yesterday, had to get rid of the winter weeds, people having to tear it up with there UTVs ? We have 3 pulls on the books for this summer in Mazeppa MN /Mazeppa Days starting on July 11th our biggest pull . If any of you guys are close or far away we would love to have you come and pull , it’s a two lane track with two sleds so we get it done from 10:00 to 3:00 last year we run 225 hooks through ? Danny
  16. That’s really cool , I have a smaller anvil and use it all the time . The mill would be handy but I’m not sure if I would use it enough , I do have a big machinist drill press that I can mill with if I want , just need to buy some tooling . Danny
  17. Make sure the sensor is adjusted correct , if I remember correct , turn it in all the way and back it 1 turn out . There is an ohm test , I can look that up if you need it . Danny
  18. I use soap from my powers washer guy , it’s a degreasing type soap and I use 3000 lbs of hot water with a rotary tip ?? ‘Danny
  19. Looks great Matt , just hard to beat this stuff?? Danny
  20. Dirt Boyz Proving Grounds at your service ? I will get my bag packed Tony ? Do you have you got a distributor with points setup in it , try changing that out also do you have the metal wire spark plug wires ? Look inside the distributor cap and see if the rotor is riding to hard on the cap /coil contact area , I have seen the rotors don’t fit down on the distributor like they should . Start it up and run it and put your Fluke Meter on the wire feeding the distributor from the coil and see how much power you have . I know there is different setup with those electric ignition setups . Is the heat range on the auto lite plugs the same as a Champion D15 Y plug ? Danny
  21. Thank goodness my name didn’t come up ? Just so all of you know I was going to throw the towel in a few weeks back over one guy that was causing a lot of grief on here . But here’s the deal I enjoy helping you guys and that would be unfair to the rest of you over me getting upset with one bad apple . Most of you know that person is not on here anymore causing trouble so life goes on . ‘This is a really nice site , BJ and his team of folks keeping this all in order is a thankless job. Thanks to all of you and the forum members for keeping it all alive and well . ‘Danny
  22. Dang Billy , sorry to see this ? That doggy would be dead if that happened to me !! I was bit as a kid and still to this day I’m very careful around dogs that don’t know you . ‘I’m glad our guard dogs here at the Proving Grounds are much more calm and only kill on demand the way you trained them ? Danny
  23. You need the drive gear and the adaptor that the pump mounts to on the back side of the front cover . A setup off a truck motor or a newer Ag application 466 with a inline pump is what you need . For pumps I have an extra P pump that’s all gone through open RPM’s , it made 1140 hp on the dyno and also have some new Bosch MW pumps that would work on that same adaptor for the pump drive . For your injection lines you want .093 line and for injectors there are lots of options depending on fuel delivery , turbo size and rpms. Make sure when your building a puller you do all the safety stuff don’t just bolt the big pump , lines , injectors and turbo on and go , you need a SFI flywheel /clutch setup , fuel dump , air shut off etc . Let me know if you have any questions there are a bunch of us on here that pull and are more than happy to help you with your setup . Don’t want you or anyone getting hurt . ‘Depending on what you what run there are a lot of options , Danny
  24. On the earlier tractors that return the fuel into the bottom of the tank I have been making a new line and returning the fuel into the top of the fuel tank . You can use soft copper line or steel brake line , drill a hole in the top front of the tank and tap it with 1/8” tap then use compression style fitting to clamp to the new line . ‘the reason for this is back in the day when it was returned to the bottom of the tank the forgot about the weight of the fuel pushing back on the injection pump so it’s harder to return the fuel when the tank is full . like the other guys are telling you if the flex ring is broke up and gone you do want to fix it , the pins on the cage will slam back and forth causing metal floating around in the pump and that’s a big no no , it ends up in the injectors , damages the head of the pump, oh and when it cuts those pins off on the governor cage it will run wild ? ‘Pull it and fix it is my advise . Danny
  25. Thanks for all the pictures Tony ? The Red Kid deserves ever award it gets ? Danny
