    German Diesel fuel pump

    I'm talking about the pump drive gear. I can't adjust the hub anymore in the gear slots to get the timing mark to line up with the bottom of the pointer in the FIP. If that makes sense.

    Well, it rained this morning so I checked things out a little closer. The other day, when I tore into it, I took a paint marker and marked out 14 on the crankshaft pulley, flywheel and put a mark on the timing gear. I guess I didn't look very hard for the dots on the gears. Today I looked closer and found them, and they're one tooth off. When you said to put the key slot at 10 o'clock, mine was at about 11 or even 11:30, but thought "close enough, right"? My Dad had this tractor overhauled sometime around 1980. Do you suppose they put it together wrong at that time? I tried to slip it over a tooth, but I think I'm in trouble and have to take the whole front plate off to do it. Am I right?

    when set at 14, the timing mark is behind the pointer, about 1/16-1/8" or so above the bottom edge. How do you adjust that?

    Got the other pump on. Sadly it didn't change how it ran. This was my Dad's tractor and as long as I can remember it's had kind of a flutter in the engine. Kind of hard to hear at idle until you take the muffler off. More prevalent as the rpms get higher. Changed injectors years ago, Dad thought it helped, I could still hear it. The thing starts easy, doesn't use oil, doesn't have any blow by to speak of, and has always smoked like a chimney. Could the problem be in the valve train? Thoughts?

    sure thing. I also got my hands on a I&T manual and it said to set everything at 14 degrees btc so I did that and now I'm gonna try my luck.

    I went out and played with it a little today. The pointer on the flywheel is pointing to a 20, the pointer is pointing to a 20 on the crankshaft pulley, the pointer in the FIP is pointing to a timing mark and the key on the shaft is at about 10 o'clock. Is it ready to come off now?

    Thank you for the detailed response. It will be helpful.

    What does swapping fuel pumps in a 706 German Diesel entail? I imagine you take the little plate off of the front of the engine, line up a couple timing marks and take it off? Is it that easy? Do you spin the engine with the flywheel and pry bar? Do you have to drain anything? Will I need new gaskets or anything? Your knowledge would be appreciated.

    Headlight question

    Thats the info I was looking for. Thanks. I think I'll go more in Cattech's direction.

    Headlight question

    Not really tractor related, but I got question about halo headlights. I have a Chevy Trailblazer that has scratched up headlights (boxcar Magnum style). Hey, I did mention a tractor after all. I was looking on eBay for replacements and saw some halo headlights. Are they direct replacements or do you have to wire other stuff in to make them work? Are they any good? Are they worth putting in there or a waste of time? Thanks for any replies.

    Is your dog helpful?

    My dog helps all the time. When I open the gate to give the cows a bale of hay, he watches the gate and doesn't let anything past him. When I open a gate to try to chase the cows through the gate, he doesn't let anything through .

    Has anyone been able to do any field work

    Last two weekends we've had 8" snows and are expecting one again tomorrow. Haven't gotten anything out of the shed yet. Today I started the Steiger and let it run for a while just because I wanted to listen to it run.

    K&M door cylinder

    I like that the k&m kit allows the door to open past 90 degrees. It makes getting in the tractor a lot easier.

    don't get me wrong, I only farm a couple hundred acres, but if i farmed 5,000+ acres I wouldn't want to tackle it with only a 2294.

    Just think what you're getting done in that hour though. Getting a lot of acres done in an hours time.
