  1. Headed wrap around the joint and secure with a hose clamp on each side, works great and will not leak
  2. That is a Super M carb. I bet the idle jet is missing, the small brass stem that screws into the fuel bowl half of the carb
  3. There are two of those valves, one in the front filter housing, one in the speed section housing, hopefully the pics help, I had no issues with hydraulic function before fixing the loose valve
  4. Okay hold on. First, Bolt 18 you completely remove, this closes the filter oil supply valve and drains the filter housing so you don't have a mess when you pull the filter cover. Second, the valve in the picture is an anti drain back valve between the rear filter and the front one. It's located in the front filter housing i believe, hydraulics will function fine without it. My 5488 had the same valve loose when I split it, they are held by a cheesy washer with a spring, I put a tack weld on mine to hold it in permanently, I'll see if I can find some pics.
  5. Plastic fan upgrade was only for late model with the rotary screen on the side, good thing to do the bearing mount at the same time, do not need to change the shroud.
  6. Man who runs in front of car gets tired
  7. Exactly, that invention is dumber than a football bat!
  8. This thread is full of a whole bunch of badassery right here!
  9. In my opinion there are three ways to build an M. Stroked 1 inch x 4.25- 4.375 bore, 350 CID good honest 90 horse, cheap build, runs forever Stroked 1.75-2" x 4.375 =421 or 436 CID is a very stable build capable of 150 horse or more, more expensive block work, Big bore engines, 4.750-5.125" x 7.75-8" stroke, 530- 660 CID, 250 horse plus, very expensive build,
  10. Did you hear the Kaiser wheels factory burnt down?
  11. Yes sir, always make a point to attend memorial day remembrance in our small town with my young family, explain to my kids how we have our freedoms and what prices have been paid to keep them, always gets a somber and respectful attitude from my kids, they stand at attention through the entire ceremony or they get a kick in the ass!
  12. Is the strap over the drawbar a factory option?
  13. Good luck finding a tractor that can do the same work on less fuel. Our 9270 or 7240 can't touch the efficiency of the 5488.
  14. This one is an animal, lucky enough to purchase it from a member here on Red Power, pushing 300 horse and uses it, just a pleasure to run!
