  1. grow up!! I know the coffee shop has some BS in it, but look what you are doing to this site!!! Censorship 101!!!!
  2. Had both and there is no comparison, the 1150 is a MUCH bigger engine than the 3406. 257 cubes more.......
  3. I believe they’re 1086 components
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Thought this deserved more recognition that it probably got. Kudo's to the owner for a super sharp very late model 25B!!!
  8. 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.
  9. 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)
  10. I believe that was a wood mock-up of the TD-24.
  11. 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.
  12. Definitely looks like TD-15C and above track frames. Even the pivot shaft looks identical.
  13. Harvester, I believe, coined the term "All wheel drive" which pretty much sums it up....

    Well you might just want to keep it stock, unless you have deeper pockets. The V800 probably isn't the best engine to put much money in. Parts that are available, are very expensive and you probably would be disappointed with the outcome. You are correct, they were a much better engine when ran at 2100 than at 28-2900 but your still dealing with a almost 40 year old engine since it was last manufactured. FWIW, I believe you might want to look at something more "practical". Good Luck

    Give the kid a break! He's learning, maybe the hard way. We need to "guide" not tear down.
  16. Very poor design there! Why would they even make it like that?
  17. IMO, other than looks & show, I don't know who in there right mind would want one. You can't get parts and turning radius is horrific. Very impractical in this day and age....
  18. This is a pic of the stupid 400 filter not only is it a cartridge, but you can't reuse the cartridge. You throw the whole thing away and put a new cartridge ass'y back on. It is ridiculous to say the least! Again, why on God's green earth would you do anything this brain dead? A simple spin-on filter with a built in by-pass would solve a lot of headaches and problems! The only good thing compared to the 600 is the filter media looks a lot better quality & capacity.
  19. Yep, good 'ol 50mm socket. Never needed one until the 400/600 came along....
  20. This is the filter out of the 600, I can't believe how cheaply made it is. No supports to keep the pleats straight. When I first took it out it looked a lot more bunched up than it does here.....poor design.
  21. Thanks for your time uploading this information SDman! The pics are awesome. You are a great asset to this forum! Do the 400's use the same type of bypass and do they cause problems? It kind of proves my point with spin on's that have the bypass built-in, they never get the chance to wear out because they get replaced often....
  22. Note: looks like they never even attempted to use that fire suppression system
  23. That is good info! Is there a sn break where they put the newer base on? It's too bad I changed the oil already. Can you see it by taking just the filter back off? Yet another reason to have spin on filters they can build the bypass right into the filter on those..... crazy how engineers have to keep changing stuff that works. I wonder if a lot of it is to "justify" their job? Thanks SDMAN!
  24. It still makes no sense. A spin on filter can be mounted most anywhere and you don't need a stupid 50mm socket and a 3' breaker bar to loosen it because someone previously used a 2' wrench too overtighten it:( I'll be glad to crush and recycle a spin on filter even though it might be a little more expensive. And there isn't much better to say about the stupid final fuel filter also. What a JOKE!!! You bring up a good point with the 400's not only are they a canister type, but you throw the canister away and put on a new dumb *ssed canister back on! You can't make this stupid sh*t up!! Granted it's a 600hr drain interval but it should still be a $30 filter and not $100!!
  25. I just can't believe with a "state of the art" engine, why in the world you'd put on, not only canister fuel filter but also a stupid canister oil filter! Are the engineers THAT brain dead? They put the filter in a place you can't hardly get the dumb *ssed 50mm socket in to take the filter off. They do have a cheap plastic drain on it though so you don't get totally drenched in oil. What a moronic, stupid setup! It can't be a cheap setup to make, why not just put a single big filter like a 3406?
