  1. T/a question 756

    The most common reason for this is wear in the high side clutch pack. As the disks wear the piston has to travel farther to lock up the clutch. It takes a bit longer for the additional fluid to fill the clutch assembly causing the delay.
  2. Cub Cadet 105 - Starts, runs 2 minutes, stops

    The + side of the coil should be connected to the + battery terminal. If you are not maintaining 12 volts there have a poor connection some where. The only area where the voltage should change is while cranking between the - side of the coil and the points, 12 volts with the points open and near 0 volts with the points closed.
  3. Ever Done Something Really Stupid

    The pile of glass in the first picture reminds me of what I was left with when removing the hitch cover for the first time on a new 86 series tractor. I had left the window closed because there was going to be enough room for the cherry picker boom to clear as I lifted the cover. I didn't take into account that the gasket may be pretty well stuck so when cover came loose the boom bounced up and just barely hit the window. Just another expensive lesson learned. Always open the window before removing the cover.
  4. 5488 engine

    Mine is cast iron also. I brazed it to thick wall bushing material and used another piece to make another support for the other end of the stand for use with heavier engines. For the IH engines I have adapter plates like you have on your engine.
  5. 5488 engine

    Looks like the same gear box that I used on my stand.
  6. 856 charging problem

    Check the wiring harness where it passes near the exhaust pipe. It is a common problem to cook the insulation off the wires in that location if the harness is not routed correctly Make sure the regulator has a good ground. If not properly grounded the voltage regulator relay will not open to cut back on the current supplies to the field terminal.
  7. LB67 Fair Repair Act

    Automotive manufacturers are required to make available to the general public the same diagnostic and repair information that they provide to their dealers. It is pretty much limited to online subscriptions but it is available for a price.
  8. Extra Hand Lever on SW6?

  9. 20 Most Important Red Tractors

    Actually I believe the WK40 was the first IH tractor with a six cylinder engine. It had an engine that was used in trucks of that time. The WD40 was a four cylinder.
  10. Super M ignition points

    Are you putting lube on the rubbing block? Points used to come with a little tube of lube but it has been years since I have seen any new ones that come with it now.
  11. I serviced some '83 IH trucks for Schwans that had 345s in them. They switched to Ford and GMC after that since they could no longer get the gas engines to do their LP conversions.
  12. 1066 Hitch pump flow test

    A good tight system will only drop off a gallon or two before the relief valve opens.
  13. Cracked block?.......advice please

    As long as the head gasket seals on the top of the sleeves and not the block that type of crack normally does not cause any problems. Both sides of the crack are in the cooling system and the head gasket will seal the top.
  14. Inside a Spragless TA

    The oil flow to the TA should be 5 gpm whether the steering is at rest or held against either the left or right stop. When at rest this 5 gpm goes to the steering hand pump and returns through the top of the TA housing back into the MCV. When the flow is cut off by holding the steering against the stops the steering relief valve opens to allow the oil to flow into the same circuit as the oil returning from the steering. If the pump is working correctly and there are no other leaks in that part of the system there should be no change in the DD and TA pressures when the steering is against the stops. If someone has turned in the screw in the bottom end of the steering relief valve to raise the steering pressure it may not be able to open enough to maintain the proper flow.
  15. Really dumb question---oil change

    You can get about another pint out of the oil cooler if you remove that drain plug. The oil pans are the same on both the turboed and NA engines, just the dip sticks are marked for the different levels.
