  1. I took a leak on an electric fence once, I am pretty careful after that.
  2. I was always told to use a matchbook cover to set points. When I was a kid we had a 1964 Impala. 283 V8. Dad always kept an allen wrench in the glove box to adjust the points. Every so often he'd pull over and set them, and turn the distributor if needed. I've heard of a guy with an old Oliver that would put his arm across all 6 spark plug wires and kill the engine. I was never brave enough to try that.
  3. This is correct, also Z Machine at Ocheydan IA. 712-758-3720 Precision Rebuilders is at 712-476-5423
  4. Another one for the ugly club. It'll buff right out too! 😄 https://www.bigiron.com/Lots/International14682WDtractor-2
  5. So you lost your taste or sense of humor? You didn't have much of a sense of humor before! 😄 Seriously though, get well soon.
  6. I've been getting the Fleetguard 3316's from A&I. Their website also lists the LF 3420 for 66 86 and 88 series tractors., They both have standpipes but one is 6.8" tall and the other is 8.06 " tall. Both are 30 micron. ny other differences or are they interchangeable?
  7. Looks like 50000 for both. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KAAY#Early_years_in_Hot_Springs https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WLS_(AM) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Records_Landecker https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Lujack
  8. We get WLS here at night, they must be a powerful station. I remember the boogie check from WLS over 30 years ago. Interesting to hear these big AM stations late night. Another is WBBM 780 from Chicago. I used to listen to one in Manitoba in the winter just to get their temperatures. 570 AM boasts the strongest daytime signal on AM in North America, I believe. Yankton SD.
  9. That's because they haven't made new ones for probably 10 years. Mine was a new in the box Sony 25 watts per channel I think I paid $160 for.
  10. There's always some on ebay. I got one for my 5288 there. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2322090.m570.l1313&_nkw=shaft+style+radio&_sacat=0 Or this. https://www.triplertractors.com/electrical.html TRT# tractor radio 2 shaft I'm having these radios custom made for the 86 88 series tractors or anywhere a 2 shaft radio is needed. These are digital radios. am/fm also able to plug phone or ipod into to play music from them. will need aux cord purchsead from any electronic store. looks like old style when off but are digitally tuned electronic radios. Will need to trim the white fiberglass shell opening slightly but no big deal. Some wiring will be required. Radio does NOT come with the plastic mount shown in the picture. Picture used to show how it looks mounted. price is for radio only. If you need plastic its listed in the interior section part# 118376C1. if you click on picture to get a closer look. 1086 1486 5088 5288. 235.00
  11. I have this same tractor back and seem to have a similar problem from what I posted about 4 years ago. It came in this time to adjust the inching pedal for the powershift valve, hard to get into gear. He drove itr home and just all of a sudden the hydraulics got slow. I had a gauge on the remote coupler and it only shows 500 psi deadheaded. I had the pump rebuilt and put it back in today with new filters and still the same. Steering and powershift work fine. Just have to rev the engine up to get the loader to move at all. I b;ew the suction screen port out when I had the pump out by using a tennis ball with a hole drilled through it and blowing air into the port, hopefully to clean the screen. I drained the hydraulic oil before coming home and at first when I took out the plug it came out really slow. There was a piece of something there, so may just pull the pto to check the screen. Any other ideas?
  12. More compression helps for starting. Especially on glow plug indirect injection engines.
  13. Just copied what I read. Earlier manual here I guess. I have a 560 diesel head here back from the machine shop. With new intake valves they measure about .020" Exhaust about .025"
  14. My older brother lived in Dallas in the mid to late 80's. When they had snow or ice he just stayed home or be badly injured. They had no idea how to drive in those conditions.
  15. There were both hydraulic and air /oil seats in the 50 series. My 5288 has the air/oil and there is linkage from the raise/lower lever that may be disconnected. My 5488 has the other style and it's just a lever and a valve. They give very little trouble. This is the 5288.
  16. I know of a few 656's here with no rh grab hole. My 706 is a 1964 model but came with round fenders.

  19. I remember a lot of times International Falls MN had really cold temps on tv weather reports. Seems to be in North Dakota lately. Even colder than Barrow Alaska.
  20. -8 here and breezy in NW Iowa. You keep the gates shut so it stays there Dale. My oldest son live in Fargo and does most work on computer from home. Doesn't really like the cold but he could work from anywhere practically. Girlfriend is there which is probably why he stays put.
  21. I have a Super Snoot but I think it came off a 560. Also have a white colored one but not sure what it fits. Our 2MH always went on the 560. Still have some mounts around for that picker and a husking bed and mounts for a 234.
