  1. Between the racoons, skunks, and possoms the poor old pheasants don't stand much of a chance having a successful nest. I trapped several of each at the old farm place. South Dakota put a bounty on them and badgers this spring and summer trying to reduce destruction of nests.. No idea if or how much it helped but good old Minn puts a season on almost every animal so that makes things difficult.

    Several different sizes and threads. Original 3 & 400 tractors used fine thread and then switched to course thread. Some of them are for sheet metal and some for heavier metal so the depth of the clamp is different. Then you have the ones with four tabs that you bend over to hold in place. After that, you got metric thread. So, 5/16, 3/8 and then metric whatever.
  3. Has to be a way to get that medication without bankrupting you. Got to be. Never been hit that hard but medical bills have kept us on one knee most of our married life. Best of luck .
  4. Dang, don't know how I missed an AR version of the pump or a program with a kit. Failure must have been after that time period. I went to service training first year they were taking those pumps apart which would have been 67 as they put the D 310 in a 706 in 66. It might have been the AR version, can't say. So many changes the mind loses track of them. I will have to take a peek in my service manual and see if references the AR version. I started working at dealer in 58 and the mechanic got fired in about two months after that. Boss said he was looking for an experienced man to replace him, but, never happened. I was lead mechanic until I left CaseIH dealer in 95. New owners, nuff said. Finished at Deere dealer so I learned some of thier headaches as well.
  5. As far as I remember , (but that was a very long time ago) the BR pump and canister filters were on the first 706's that we sold. We had some problems with the hair in the filters getting in to the pump, under the check valve in head and causing rpm fluctuations. At least that is what IH claimed was the problem so they improved the filters. Twisted off a couple heads in the BR version and I replaced the head on one and on the other, had to install the CR version. I haven't checked my service manual but I don't recall any mention of the AR version as I thought it was already updated to BR when 706 was introduced. Actually, we sold a holdover 706 and it promptly twisted the head off in a couple hundred hours. We had a 756 on the lot and took that pump and put on the 706 and then I rebuilt the 706 pump and installed back onto 756. Same number pump. Not my idea but one does what told to do. It worked out ok.
  6. That is the replacement version pump. You can see on the tag it is a CR model where the original was a BR. The quickest way to recognize is the injection lines come straight out on this one where the original were at an angle out of the head.
  7. Not a lot of Case tractors around here. Dealer died in early 70's and Case put in a Co. store but that didn't last long. But after the merger, we of course had those customers so we worked on and sold them. Not much experience with failed power shift except electrical problems on the 94 and 96 series. Most Case guys were very faithful to the brand just like Red and or Green were. It was difficult for us with no Case mechanic withing 40 miles and at my age, I didn't really need to learn a whole new line of tractors. But, we made it. As far as leaving them in reverse, well, when you back up to hook up the pto, throw the range into neutral , they do get left in reverse. It could happen, deserved or not.
  8. Rotary Bosch, BR models, closed throttle and increased fueling pulled until contacting spring loaded plunger. On CR model pumps, use part throttle, like one third and also pull increased fuel to plunger. If no cable to shut off, (operates from throttle only) the increased fuel device is built into pump and automatically works until engine runs fast enough to build pressure in pump to shut off increased fuel. All three of these pumps have hydraulic governors. Then a later pump was used that has mechanical governor and that is just throttle operated also . So, starting procedure depends on pump model but I think a 70 hydro has a CR pump with cable but I may be the one with throttle control only. The mechanical governor pump looks quite a bit different from hydraulic governor style.
  9. You need to raise the parts above just a little bit by loosening anything necessary . If you have all the valves installed onto the bracket it will be a two man job or some yankee engineering due to the weight and position .
  10. You can use a snowblower in reverse , BUT, you don't want to do a mile long road without giving it a break now and then by going to neutral or forward for a little bit. Lot of those tractors on snow blowers around here. The big issue and some have already indicated , is leaving it stand stationary in reverse for any extended period of time.
  11. How about calling it just an extra bunch of junk added instead of building a few more cubic inches into the engine to get the intended job done.
  12. I agree he is losing oil someplace. The thing is weather it is normal leakage or excessive as they all leak oil from day one. That is what I was trying to explain with new tractors constantly having to turn the steering wheel when there was something causing them to pull to one side or the other like front axle problem, side draft or as mentioned, crown in the road. I had a couple Deere front cylinders apart also some years ago.
  13. If fully agree as I was born with these tractors so to speak. Lot of complaints from first buyers especially when using a moldboard plow that was putting a bit of side draft on the tractor. Like I said many times on this forum, IH released that special different spring in the pilot valve and it really did a good job of minimizing drift. I don't know if the spring is still available or not but I put a lot of them in over the years. It reduced the effort to move the pilot valve and also made steering those tractors more effortless all day long. I remember our IH service rep sitting on the tractor with his watch out checking for excessive leakage in systems. They all had some and some more than others but well within specs. Deere tractors whole different ball game as I was some what involved in them also later on in life. Another thing. The latest hand pumps incorporated a (searching for correct word here) blade in the lobe on rotor to reduce the slippage . Can't remember just which hand pumps that involved though.
  14. Jack up the front end and see if it stays straight ahead. This will tell you if pilot valve is not completely centered or if you have leakage in the front bolster. If it does not move over extended period of time while steering it back and forth now and then, you can be sure it is the front axle pulling you one way. The steering hand pump has some leakage in it so any pull on it will require constant correcting. IH released a different spring in the pilot valve and I installed a lot of them in 06 series tractors that really help over come the drift plus they steer much easier. You could also put a gauge in each line to front bolster and compare readings and they should be the same but gauges would have to be closely matched. I would bet you have more caster on one side of the front axle than other side.
