    Cyclo 800 Hydraulic Pump question

    I'm not sure. Too much flow will mean more return oil and you don't want to overload the fan motor or oil cooler. But you could run the valve farther open and the tractor slower.

    Cyclo 800 Hydraulic Pump question

    My 6 row has a 1000 pump. The needle valve is right on the housing. I've seen 540's and the valve is in between 2 hoses right behind the pump. If you get an aftermarket pump you'll need a reservoir tank. Not a big deal. Call Bob at 712-470-0554. He's got a bunch of 800 and 900 planters for parts.

    Cyclo 800 Hydraulic Pump question

    The pumps for these planters have the adjustable flow valve to raise or lower air pressure which the others won't have. It's probably easier to find a used 1000 rpm pump. What tractor are you using? Some have used tractor hydraulics but you need to be able to vary the flow as well that way.

    Original Paint IH Tractors and Equipment photos

    This 1066 my dad bought in the early 80's with around 3000 hours. I'm the 3rd owner counting dad. 85xx hours now. This is the 1066 I bought last spring on Auction Time. Will be getting new paint eventually. Probably never sat inside! 😒Supposedly 28xx actual hours. Bought from the original owner's son. This 806 my dad bought in 1971 and was the 2nd owner. It had 1500 hours when he bought it and now has almost 17000. I overhauled it at around 13000. This 1964 706 is the first tractor I ever bought. I believe it's original paint. I sold it with a wide front and ended up getting it back on trade about 10 years later. Wide front was taken off.

    OH you know I'm kidding, right? Putting a u joint in my pickup and waiting for the snow to stop melting to put the driveshaft back on!!

    10 o`clock? 2 o`clock? 4 o`clock?

    I remember hitting a foxhole with the front wheels of our M when I was a kid. The steering wheel started spinning and whacked my fingers. 😡😬👿 THAT HURTS! Like said with hydraulic steering it moves around anyway. Otherwise I'd go for 4 O'clock.. He's just lonely in the doghouse and trying his wi fi antenna out!!!!

    TRW MCV Pump ?

    I think they were an OEM supplier years ago. .It must be pretty old. I believe they were called Thompson pumps at one time. The other was Cessna.

    Couple 966 Pre-Buy Inspection Questions

    Found this off one of my previous posts. Looks lile the serial number for the 966 updates was 17001 and newer. Nothing in the rear end though. Just different PTO drive gears,

    Couple 966 Pre-Buy Inspection Questions

    On the axle try to shake the front tires back and forth to check for a loose pivot pin and bushings and the ball on the back. Also check for loose tie rods and the splined arms on the spindles for looseness. Is the hitch a 2 point or 3 point? Both were available. On a 2 point the link is a pin that goes through the end of the lift arm. The 3 point has a yoke that the threaded rod extends through. I wouldn't be afraid of an early 966. I have an early and a late 1066. If I remember right the updates in the rear end were on turbo tractors, 1066 and 1466. But not sure. Good luck!

    She said I smell like her Dad

    Was her dad a hog farmer? Then it's a tossup. 🤡 You should see my wife wrinkle her nose after I help the neighbors load hogs! 😯

    Movies 🎥

    I usually do that too, all the movies are crap. Horror movies or stupid. The last one we saw at the theater was The Upside. That was pretty good.

    1980 1724 with 404 Gas Throttle Cable

    Got a used cable off a 466 equipped truck but the length is about 3 feet longer. Had to make a loop and rubs on the firewall. It works but barely. I found a website and they have my correct cable. A little pricey but not much else can be done.

    706 shifting issues

    It's really fun with a cab on. 🤥Take off both supports after removing the battery trays and all the shifting linkage. Need to support the fuel tank, I usually put a block or small hydraulic jack in there by the starter.

    1980 1724 with 404 Gas Throttle Cable

    I was going to haul a few loads of corn today and backing the truck under the auger I broke the throttle cable to the carburetor. No longer available from Navistar. Part number is 453694C3, one dealer said another dealer in Illinois had one but he said it's been gone a while. I did see one on ebay unless someone else has a source. Guess I could run a wire to the carb and wrap it around my foot! 😆 I guess it's had too many miles with it flat to the floor.
