  1. Nixon was long gone before Carter was elected. Gerald Ford was president. He created a lot of resentment when he pardoned Nixon which probably cost him the election.

    New joke

    I go past this almost every morning. Spring is coming. The snow is down to the bottom row now. It was completely covered a month ago.
  3. It should be no problem. There is a plastic button on the bottom of the installation plug to keep the pump from turning before it is installed. You just wore off a bit of the plastic.
  4. The change to the swing brush alternator was a big improvement for alternators used on farm equipment. Vibration causes wear on the sliding brushes resulting in their hanging up in the brush holders, often when there was little worn off the slip ring contact area. Most auto parts stores will only have the sliding brush style (type 110) alternators. The swing brush style (type 115) can be identified by the three ribs coming off the bearing support. Type 115 swing brush Type 110 sliding brush You will sometimes find that re-builders of alternators for ag equipment will assemble a hybrid version where the front housing is for a 12SI to get the better cooling but also use the 10SI type 115 rear housing to be able to use the swing style brushes.
  5. Will it not be usable of will they just nor support it if you have problems. With my last Verizon phone they called every couple of months telling me that my phone was no longer supported and could no longer repair it if I were to have problems with it. I continued to use it for about four years after that with no issues.

    You take half of your SS benefits and add that to your other income. If that total is more than $34K single, or $44K filing jointly, you then add 85% of your SS income to the rest of your income before figuring the tax that is owed. This is the government at work. They are not going to make things easy to figure out.
  7. Drain the oil from the rear frame. Remove the PTO. Lift and support the axle housing. Put a wrench or socket on the cap screw on the inside end of the axle. Turn the wheel to break loose the cap screw. Remove the wheel. Remove the axle cap. Use a spacer between the cap screws on the axles. Here it is easier to use a box wrench rather than a socket. With the wrench being held stationary rotate the axle clockwise to use the bolt to force the axle through the bull gear and bearing. You will be able to move the axle about an inch before removing the washer on the end of the axle. Reinstall the bolt and use a thicker spacer. If you get to the point where the axle is not yet loose in the inner bearing you may need a longer bolt to continue to move the axle. Depending on the fit of the bearing to the axle you may need the longer bolt to reinstall the axle into the bearing. With the axle removed the inner bearing can be replaced by moving the back of the bull gear as far as possible to the other side. The H and M tractor are a bit more difficult with the smaller PTO opening. The replacement axles for a C used a snap ring rather than the original pair of bolts. That one was a real challenge to get installed.
  8. It only take a little spot of weld on the axle to ruin the hardening. When they break as a result you will see that the break starts at the weld and progresses out from there. You have the hardest part of changing the axle done already. You need to support that side of the tractor under the axle housing instead of the axle. Remove the axle cap. Remove the PTO. Remove the bolt that hold the axle to the bull gear and push the axle out of the gear and bearing. To make the job more challenging you should do it in a corn field with a picker mounted on the tractor. I'm sure there are a few here that have done that.
  9. Those bulbs are used as the warning light bulbs on IH tractors from the early 60's on.
  10. When cold the coolant level should be 6 1/2" below the top of the filler neck.
  11. The wrench and a few other small parts came in a burlap bag inside the cab when the tractors were delivered from the factory.
  12. If you are losing steering and brakes you have more problems than just a TA leaking. The steering has the first priority. If you don't have enough pressure and flow for the steering nothing else will get any oil to leak.
  13. Most likely the ignition points will be different. 560 used the early style, 706 started using the later style.
  14. That rotor design is basically the same as the stationary green pea viners and the later pea combines used dating from the pre-WWII era.
  15. The copper layer on in the bearing is a bonding layer to get the babbet bearing material to stick to the steel shell. It is hard enough the support the babbet but yet soft enough to allow debris to become imbedded or create a groove without damaging the crankshaft. If you see any copper the bearing is worn out. In the early/mid 70's copper prices soared and bearing manufacturers went to using nickle as a bonding material. Caterpillar was one of the first companies to find out that was not a good choice. The nickle was too hard to allow debris to be imbedded in the bearing and as a result caused many crankshaft failures. That is why they went to recommending bearing replacement every 100,000 miles. IH also had some engines built with that type of bearings. The ones I saw were in the 400 series engines in the 75 - 77 year range.
