  1. The "+" or "." are on the shaft that the governor weights are on. One end will have these marks the other end will be smooth. It will only be visible through the timing hole for a very brief time. Get the timing marks on the pulley where it should be (38deg BTDC in your case) then the "+ or the dot" should be in the window, if not loosen the 3 bolts on the drive gear and use a 15/16" socket and ratchet to turn the pump until the mark in the timing window lines up. Be sure you're on #1 compression stroke and not #6 when you do this. I'm thinking you might have other problems though. Sometimes the RD governors will stick at rated speed when they have a lot of hours on them......
  2. -A long, long time ago I can still remember how that music used to make me smile..... American Pie, Don Mclean -Maybe she was smilin' in the mirror, maybe I was too 'cause I was stoned..... Stranger, Johnny Duncan
  3. With that Elwood front end, it isn't worth anymore than 2wd price, maybe even less if you have to buy the 2wd components to covert it back someday when something major breaks on that one.....
  4. Looks like the articulated 7140 under the towel???? BTW nice Scout too!
  5. grow up!! I know the coffee shop has some BS in it, but look what you are doing to this site!!! Censorship 101!!!!
  6. Had both and there is no comparison, the 1150 is a MUCH bigger engine than the 3406. 257 cubes more.......
  7. I believe they’re 1086 components
  8. All 86 series Steiger built tractors had pressure lubed fronts. The early 4386 had a similar brake setup like the 4366. Later ones had wet brakes, that’s probably the difference your thinking of.
  9. Nicely done, sure beats the ugly white factory color. All should’ve been painted this way IMO.... 3406B engine probably a little light compared to the 1150 cummins.
  10. 4366's were not pressure lubed hence the need to "overfill" the front housing like the rear's. xx86 fronts were all pressurized (not rears) thats why less oil is needed in the front's. -non pressurized pinions have a different part number.
  11. Thought this deserved more recognition that it probably got. Kudo's to the owner for a super sharp very late model 25B!!!
  12. Basically they were discontinued in 1965 because IH closed the Milwaukee Works where all Harvester's fuel injection parts were made. Since the single and twin plungers and injectors were being discontinued anyhow, that only left the RD and they could purchase Roosa Masters cheaper than moving a relatively low production item to another plant.
  13. I was looking for a gasket for my 806 with an M&W turbo and stumbled on to this site and thought I would share to those like me that thought they were long gone. Nice to see that someone picked up the ball and started making kits and parts again. Not they're are cheap, but at least we have options... M&W Turbo Kits | Rajay Turbo Kits | Turbo Rebuild Kits (genuinediesel.com)
  14. I believe that was a wood mock-up of the TD-24.
  15. Where are you from? FWIW, Komatsu ruined what Dresser didn't already. They took what they wanted and sold the rest off. What a shame. Dressta, unfortunately, is pretty much dead in the US. No dealers around anymore and parts for the older machines are slim to none and if you do find parts they are so crazy priced it makes people just scrap them and get something else that has parts and service support.... it's too bad.
