    just bought a stx 425 its alot like my 9380 i also have, just finished changing all fluids and filters cant see to much different to look for than any other steiger tractor 


    as mentioned above i donno about the N14 anymore i thought it was the best thing ever to now since mine spun a main bearing destroying the block and the crank which i cant seem to find a replacement engine other than straight from cummins for to much  money 

    From my personal experience  ....................   I dont like N14 engines.  They will pin hole the liners even when you have a water filter and do litmus tests trying to keep PH correct........ and they fret the block on 5 and 6 mains .... so yes if you dont catch it ... junk block     I will quit now because there will be hurt feelings.  With that being said ........ I have 3 junk N14s and cast here is currently 200 a ton

  3. There was a fella on here from virgina but was originally from here Madison,Ne (he raised buffalo I think) Anyway his 1486 wrecked the diff and I tried to walk him thru the process BUT all the machine shops near him had a big issue with the mods soooooooooooooo since he needed a new diff housing anyway he bought one here , I needled it and assembled what I could here , drilled the bull pinion and put the swivel on .   Then the parts supplier here shipped it to him.  As far as I know he is still going strong with it. This was done a long time ago already

    those engines and similar are "ask" here for $3500 with >> 1.5 mil mi .not running short block

    up to $20K for some < 1 mil mi

    YIKES!!!!!!! Here and within 1000 mi radius that engine is worth 1000.00 to 1500.00   In fact I had 2 of them and sold ea and they ran for 1000.00 each and they went to Ohio

    Thanks Danny, that's what I was hoping to hear. I can deal with a little extra, just wasn't looking forward to splitting this machine again. Two years ago I had it apart, completely destroyed the constant mesh gears and broke the bottom trans shaft in half. I installed one that measured a little thicker from the salvage yard to avoid these problems. Would it be worth while to needle the diff while I have it out? 

    If you have it out and are willing to spend a bit more money YES by all means needle the rear ,,, you wont be sorry.   Yes its a tractor pulling thing BUT newer tractors come factory needled

  6. I think its funny when anyone throws it out there about so n so is a racist    AND Joe Biden has been featured in papers saying very racist things.     The deal with our gov ..................... I heard his speech replayed ......... NO thats not what he said BUT I am not surprised that its being touted that way

  7. This is what mine look like.  Wil wood 4 piston calipers and these disks.  Work AWESOME   And the "yellow" part is magnesium and weighs 4 lbs  I also take the tapered bearings out and run sealed bearings allowing the bull pinion to "float" = less parasitic drag AND helps the rearend run free so it responds easily to brake pressure I dont know how elaborate Gonzo is gonna get but mine is substantially modified to eliminate problems and make it run free 4878E695-542E-46B2-A492-568219EBD078.jpeg

  8. Since you are in SE SD how far from Norfolk Ne are you?  IF you want to stay with a non-concrete floor prep it and put 0-1 slag from Nucor steel in Norfolk down about 6-8" deep. Water and pack it with one of those vibrating plate packers   This sets up VERY nicely and solid  its not concrete but the next best thing

    Not too long ago my friend was telling me about an accident where a guy was hauling a JD combine with brand new semi and lo boy.  First load with the truck!    Got in an accident, not truck driver fault, and totaled out the whole works.  

    Im pretty sure THIS is that combine.

    You know, not every tractor has to have 500 hp. And the "sipping fuel" bullshit? The stock 282 is still one of the most fuel efficient engines ever built. What's the matter, you don't have enough patience to push the glow plug button before starting it? Everyone whines about an IH glow plug engine, but then brag about their stupid volkswagen, or kubota, or yanmar powered green compact tractor.

    Well my POS 706 you could hold the glow plug button till the cows come home but it wouldn’t be running to feed them ????? I will take my 966 EVERYDAY over that other junk.  Best thing that happens to 706 tractors besides Cummins swap is cutting them up and turning them into pullers.  ???? then they are useful  otherwise cast is $230 a ton

    Well, i guess i had better just plan on scrapping my 15,000 hour Farmall 706 D282 because it's just awful then. Seems silly, because it always starts, even though it's pretty well worn in at this point. The 656 Diesel will be sad too, because it spent it's life between '67 and '79 on hammer mill duty all winter and never needed a block heater because it never failed to start no matter how cold it got. 

    It's funny how closed minded people are about IH products on this forum.. Bash any IH product all day long, but don't dare say anything negative about their dodge diesel pickup engine or a frickin' deere, or look out! 

    Really???? I read this thread from start to finish before I said a word. BASH BASH BASH that junk Cummins  Well I owned a POS 706 with a 282 in it and I wanted to start it on fire more times than not.   And after seeing my buddies 706 with a 5.9 Cummins in it a driving it ........... ITS AWESOME !!!  He did a nice job on the swap and it runs great,smooth and tons of power while sipping fuel. So WHY do you think the newer tractors and combines have Cummins engines?  Could it be that they are JUNK and gets them repeat repairs? 

    Its this guys tractor and he can do as he likes for his situation.  And its BS like this why I rarely post anything anymore ............ HOW DARE I have a different opinion.   Plus I hate powerstroke and the god almighty 7.3    I dont have a boat therefore I dont need an anchor .     Carry on .......... I dont care

  12. Amazing to me how closed minded some are .   However a buddy of mine put a 6BT in a 706 and now its an AWESOME tractor.  Sips fuel , runs smooth and way plenty of power .   Best thing that ever happened to that tractor.  Took out the crappy glowplug JUNK that didnt like to start even in the heat of summer to something that starts in the cold unplugged   Thats a win win especially if its a chore tractor you need daily to feed no matter what.   Your tractor so build what suits you and your need sir.

    I mentioned the shroud because it can be seen from further away than the other clues.

    It's always been the easiest way for me to tell a 7 from any other 66 series, from a distance.

    again that wasnt my point.........................................

  14. It seems sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many missed my point.   a 66 series tractor from centerline of rear axle to centerline of front spindle are the same.  hoods are the same length   I AM NOT talking about a fan shroud or any other fool thing you wanna convince yourself about. So sheetmetal interchanges

    We have a 7 and had a 10.  That alone might suggest something.  From  a sheer power standpoint the 10 had it.  But for a tractor doing livestock related work, not at full power very much, the 7 was a much better choice.  Used significantly less fuel and the longer stroke non turbo 360 had quite a bit more grunt off idle than the 10.  

    Put 34" rubber on the 10 and then see if the "grunt" is so much better on the 7

  16. Little 66 ,,,,, big66 ,  you do know they are all the same right?  no frame size difference    fact if you put the tires off a 766 on a 1466 and didnt have 1466 stickers on it how quick would realize its a "big" tractor?     carry on

  17. Yes and I have a stack of billet mounting plates that will put a tuthill pump driven of the front side of injection pump.  I love this setup over ANY version of an electric.  Number 1 reason ..... it matches fuel delivery with speed of engine.  Faster engine turns faster pump turns.  Electric...... you get what it has no mater what.  High volume and pressures can lead to idle issues and barrels n plungers stuck.  Yes new light super component is made of 1 1/2” tubing   I made that fuel log actually.   For some that are in familiar. This is one of the best ways to do this.  Put your 3 way shut off valve below the pump and you have one line up to dual feed the pump.  I put the pressure gauge on just so I can look at it when priming or cranking.  Yes this system primes with pulling the pump back (that’s part of why hoses make this handy) put a drill with a mating drive on it and spin it up.  It will completely fill the system quick
