  1. If the bus engines are 360s there is not much change other than the turbocharger. 806 had a 361 and the 826 had a 358 .
  2. Most likely the poor connection was internal to the battery. High resistance at an internal connection will cause loss of amperage and get hot under load. Gets hot enough and it goes BOOM! Unless you notice the loss of amperage there is not much to warn you when it is about to happen. I've seen this happen to several batteries where the customer lifted the battery by the post.
  3. My dad had a couple of # 64 combines. The one with the Super A engine (the other was PTO driven) had a dual on the side with the engine and grain hopper. The main tire was a 16" while the outer tire was a 15". Outer tier only touched if the ground was too soft.
  4. We had I believe 10 or 12 of those 686 tractors that were eligible for an upgrade to higher compression pistons to improve starting and less idle smoke in cold weather. I did the upgrade on one that had coolant leaking from the sleeve O-rings. Tried to get the shop manager to call the other owners to see if we could do the upgrade to some others but nothing came of it. Instead we sat around a lot of hours that winter with nothing to work on.
  5. I worked at Nord Implement from May of 75 to when they sold out in November of 84. It was then a IH majority owned dealership until it closed after the merger. Larson Implement out of Northfield ran a satellite store there for a few years after that.
  6. My C700 and C750 have the cooling fan connected to the end of the crankshaft rather than the water pumps. Both have 391s in them.
  7. Can't tell from here but my guess would be that the secondary throttle plates are sticking closed the times when you are down on power but opening properly when it runs correctly. May need to polish the sticking areas or adjust the stop screw to keep it from closing too far.
  8. Farmall H is 18" Farmall M through 1456 is 20" 66 and newer are 22"
  9. As long as he was not touching the ground when he jumped through the wire he would not get shocked. Just like a bird landing on a power line. Now a squirrel climbing up a power pole and touching both the neutral and the hot line has a whole different outcome.

  11. Nut is part number 6245D. Our F 20 had those and I think the 1943 H also. The parts book does not give serial number break but I believe the early Hs used that nut, later ones replaced with number 427642.
  12. Champion D89D (543 stocking number) are the only plugs I have found that are correct for the gas start diesels. When you try to cross them to Autolite or NGK you get plugs for the gas engines. Those plugs do not have the long extended electrodes that the diesels should have. On the other hand I have had customers say that the have used the gas engine plugs without a problem. Champion 543 at NAPA over the counter price $13.29.
  13. Be sure to send in the punch card to validate your warranty.😄 If it would even make it to the correct place, what are the chances anyone there would recognize what it is much less have any machine to read it.
  14. Right under the exhaust manifold. The #7 plug wire is supposed to run by itself behind the carburetor to avoid induced spark caused by running #5 and #7 running to close to each other. Timing is done on #8 instead of #1. .
  15. The tool bolts on to two studs and allows you to really hit the end to jar the cones loose. It helps a lot if both tires are still installed.
