  1. Yup, had quite a few fixed there.
  2. Is this conventional or synthetic oil?
  3. If you have one wheel on the ground you need to go 2 tire revolutions because of the spider gears turning one wheel twice as fast. I saw a lot of IH Scouts and pickups with 3.70 front axle and 3.73 rear axle tags. Or 4.10 and 4.11. 3.07 and 3.08, well you get the idea.
  4. When you have time read this thread from Yesterday's Tractor. Pete 23 has a few posts in there. https://www.yesterdaystractors.com/cgi-bin/viewit.cgi?bd=farmall&th=1006550
  5. The former owner and mechanic I bought my shop tools and parts from said the 656 tractors were the worst for burning valves for some reason. He was the mechanic when they were new tractors. He also said the D15Y spark plugs with the extended tips helped somewhat. This book is in my service bulletin binder. Printed in 1968. GSSX 5016 is the book number.
  6. I'm not a big fan of Cenex oil but several farmers near me here run Irriflex low ash. On my own 756 gas I'm using 10w 30 Valvoline since it was overhauled 800 hours ago. No issues. Fire away guys!😀
  7. This all makes me like my mostly red 1970's to 1990's all paid for equipment that much better. At least I can plant if the satellites shut down.
  8. So is it a truck engine? It has a late serial number, and as far as I know the last ag use of that engine was the 88 series until 1986 or so.
  9. 😁 In our area they part out much nicer looking tractors than the ones in these pictures.
  10. Another one, 886 in Alabama. https://www.equipmentfacts.com/listings/farm-equipment/auctions/online/211121821/international-886?gtmlt=1&_ga=2.71716182.452066520.1642885385-1158569666.1628010593&_gac=1.174845334.1642712167.EAIaIQobChMIvsaP15vB9QIVziCtBh1LPwWcEAAYASAAEgLeA_D_BwE
  11. What is that engine in? My 5288 is a 1983 model and the engine number is 163170. Yours is a lot newer.
  12. All the 400 cams had the lift of .2907". intake and exhaust. The bigger bore lifters came out at serial number 140086 for the 466B which is 467 on the serial number. So it should have the wide lobe cam too. Looks like 440336 is when the wide bearings started. At least that's what A&I's website says.
  13. I took a leak on an electric fence once, I am pretty careful after that.
  14. 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.
  15. This is correct, also Z Machine at Ocheydan IA. 712-758-3720 Precision Rebuilders is at 712-476-5423
  16. Another one for the ugly club. It'll buff right out too! 😄 https://www.bigiron.com/Lots/International14682WDtractor-2
  17. 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.
  18. 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?
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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?
