  1. 1. 5088 or 3688 or 1086 with PFC hydraulics. 2. 1026 or 1066 hydro. Or an 826 hydro or gear drive. Really miss the 826 I had but sold it. 3. 560 diesel
  2. From what I can decipher from my ancient M&W book the AP 160 came in a sleeve and piston kit numbered SP 60. Says Hi T whatever that means. The SP 60 kit is 4" bore and standard was 3 7/8". 6.4 to 1 compression ratio vs 5.6 std. 247 to 264 cubic inches and goes from 36 to 53 belt HP . The sleeve and piston set was $95.42 in 1980.
  3. I'd also check for vacuum leaks between the manifold and the head. Spray starting fluid where the manifold and head connect. Should smooth out if there's a leak. Sometimes tightening the manifold bolts will fix it. Do the same thing at the carburetor gasket.
  4. My wife's family has a lake house about an hour away. I rarely go up there. Why sit around and get on each other's nerves? Just the way I see it. Also not much of a boating fan. Dry land is fine with me. Anyway,one of the times I did get up there I noticed a few interesting names painted on the back of these boats. One was flying around and sounded pretty mean. It was called "Pair of 9's" When my father in law stopped for gas I asked the attendant what that name meant. He said the guy had a pair of 900 HP Big Block Chevy engines in it. Another one is owned by a neighbor of theirs. The boat is called "Embraceable." Guess his occupation. Orthodontist. Any favorites of yours?
  5. I have a 1998 K2500 extended cab with an 8' box. I looked a long time for that combination. At least with a tool box I can get my ATV inside and close the tailgate. My other truck is a 2000 Silverado 1500 ext cab short box, With a tool box in front too. The ATV goes on a trailer or get the 98 out. Short boxes are a pain!
  6. When I had my heads ported and bigger valves put in they machined the boss where the studs went and went to hex head screw in studs and guide plates. Dual valve springs were needed with this cam, and I run stud girdles on it. Rarely set the valves.
  7. He's 20. I let him drive mine a few weeks ago and when this one came along he was very interested. The 72 has an open differential so needs replaced anyway, I'm not sure if it has an 8.2 or 8.5" ring gear. I had a 72 El Camino years ago that had a 8.2" 10 bolt with 2.73 limited slip rear end. I found a 12 bolt axle out of a 69 Chevelle with 3.31 gears that I put in it and then went to 3.90. That same rear axle is in my 71 now with 4.10 gears currently. I had my car on a chassis dyno and it showed 330 HP at the rear wheels which converted to just over 400 flywheel HP. About 9.5 to 1 355 so not too bad. This 72 he's buying has been in my same town since new, I know the original owner who got it new. Funny thing is when the current owner bought it maybe 30 or so years ago I rebuilt the transmission for him. https://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/62808/10002/-1 https://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/62804/10002/-1 https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-730962/make/chevrolet/model/chevelle/year/1972 https://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/62806K/10002/-1
  8. My son is buying 72 Chevelle from a friend of mine. (I have a 71 myself.) It's been in storage a number of years and needs a lot of work. The 350 in there is pretty shot and needs replacement or an overhaul. Standard Chevelle with an automatic, floor shift and bucket seats. 10 bolt rear with probably 2.73 gears. I've heard of people running late model Vortec heads on a small block. Seems they have good flow for stock. I have a 4 bolt main 350 out of a Chevy truck and have access to a pair of heads, There are intake manifolds available for carburetors with these heads. Anyone attempted or running this? I'm thinking bore the block .030 and put in flat top pistons. Dual plane intake like an Edelbrock Performer and 600 or 650 carb. 268 or 270 range cam, find some 3.55 or 3.73 gears and maybe a little looser converter. Do these heads require different headers? I've heard both ways. The chambers are pretty small so with flat tops the compression is probably 10 to 1 or so. I also have another set of 186 casting 1970 GM heads which is what I'm using on my car. Maybe should detune my engine and put it in his car and build myself a better one. 😛

  10. What he said. The foot throttle won't move the hand throttle. There are friction discs on the hand throttle to keep it in place. Use it to set your low idle. Then speed up if needed with the foot. I only ever drove one tractor with one of these, a 1026 hydro. Seemed like a good addition to a tractor to me.
  11. My last one was the Samsung rugby and now have the Kyocera Dura XE. Had this one over a year now with no issues.
  12. My message file was full, sorry. My 756 is a gas, would it still work? There is that override spring on the throttle linkage behind the battery.
  13. Ran across this on All States Ag Parts website. Would be nice to have for my 756 loader tractor but it's not listed for a 756. Foot Pedal Accelerator Kit Compatible with International 856 1466 766 1066 966 (tractorpartsasap.com)
  14. My 540 pump has a flow restrictor like this. I would think the GPM of 540 and 1000 pumps like this would be the same. https://www.surpluscenter.com/Brands/Prince-Mfg/1-4-NPT-5-GPM-Prince-WFC-400-In-Line-Flow-Control-9-7960-4.axd
  15. https://farmpartsonline.com/used-ih-international-planter-1000-rpm-pto-pump/ Or try this place. He has a bunch of planters parted out. https://greenwayfarmsinc.com/cyclo-air-800-planter/
