  1. I just kick start it. ? No seriously I ditched the two 6v batteries and have a single 12v group 31 on the other side.
  2. That’s what makes this such a cooL forum!!
  3. Had been terminating a cover crop in another field with glyphosate. The field it’s sitting in is a coastal Bermuda hay field that was burned on Monday.
  4. Tell me more about the rear wheel centers. Should I look for different wheels? I have a set of duals (hubs and rims) for it. But have never put tires on them.
  5. She’s just an old working girl. Got her cleaned up for maintenance.
  6. Thats just awesome!! Thanks for sharing.
  7. Agree 100%. I was trying to learn how to troubleshoot the solenoid and figure out how it works. When I got into it, it looked like a simple way to get it going without buying a new part. I’m not recommending this as a permanent fix-just saying it may be a short term solution to getting up and running again until you can get a new one. Solenoid removal and installation is also a really easy job. If it were deep into the tractor, I’d never put it back together without a new part. Thanks again to all who contributed to this post. I love these old tractors and always learn from the vast knowledge and experience on this forum!! Kerry
  8. Thanks to all who responded. I learned a lot. The copper terminals were worn and the washer was corroded. I took it apart and rotated the terminal 18p degrees and polished everything back up and it starts like a champ. Plan on ordering a new solenoid but thought this might help in case someone needed to make a quick field repair.
  9. I’ll take a look at that tomorrow. So when it just clicks the starter motor never spins. It you jump the 2 big terminals the starter will spin but the solenoid doesn’t pull the vendor into the flywheel to spin the motor.
  10. Thanks. What’s the other small terminal?
  11. I think the starter solenoid is bad on my 966. It started several weeks ago clicking but not starting. It feels like the Ben fix is pulling in but the starter motor doesn’t engage. If you keep hitting it it eventually will start. it has a 4 pole solenoid on it but only one of the small terminals has wires on it. Could someone please share a wiring diagram or explain how these are normally wired. Thanks1

  13. I think the 88 series red tractors are just bad to the bone. And gasp.....the long nose Deere’s like the 4440’s.
  14. I think it’s a heck of a find. That tractor is in way better shape than when I bought my 966. I’m thinking there may be some wolves in JD green clothing doubting the old girl?. Sure you’re gonna have some leaks here and there when you start using it but those old tractors were way over built. From the looks of that 1566 you obviously know what you’re doing! Post more pics and let us know how things progress. Make your friend proud!
  15. I paid 1.86/gal for off-road in waynesboro ga last weekend.
