    Anyone know IH and Perkins history?

    Mike, it seems your IH fleet has a bit of a thing for playing in the water,...is that the same creek you "bathed" the 86 in the other day.πŸ˜„ Good looking old Binders though mate, I'm guessing early/mid seventies when pic was taken??? How the heck did you manage to remember those colossal three digit phone numbers??πŸ˜†.....I guess the "I PHONE ZERO" must have had specially calibrated software back then eh LOL. It's funny how many different descriptions of AACO and ACCO come up over the years. the versions I know are : AACO Australian 'A' series cab over : ACCO Australian "C' series cab over. rumour has it that they skipped "ABCO" because it sounded too much like 'ABBO' (Aboriginal) .... very PC are our OZ matesπŸ˜‰ Cheers, Heath

    Anyone know IH and Perkins history?

    Perkins engines were also fitted to trucks and combines produced by IH in Australia. Heath

    5240 Maxxum: Name that ungodly noise.

    Not to be a smart a$$ Or any thing ,but is there plenty of oil in the tranny ??? my first thoughts were much the same as cihtech ,but now after hearing it I'm starting to think differently. like Jeff said ,oil going through a relief somewhere or maybe air in the system somewhere when the pump is on demand. Apart from the noise , does the steering actually work properly??? Could you try using the power shift while holding the steering on demand and let us know what happens please???? I'm wondering if there is a problem between the steering circuit and the regulated circuit which caused the pto to stop when using the steering. If I remember correctly , the steering priority valve and the regulated pressure control valve are housed inside the same valve body, and I'm wondering if there is some kind of interaction going on between the two of them ( o' ring blown maybe???) I hope I haven't confused the issue or started a wild goose chase. Its been a while since I worked on these, so I am a little rusty on it sorry, just my 2 cents, it will be interesting to see what cihtech thinks. Heath ,NZ

    Good old 10% horsepower increase

    Great information George, thanks a lot for sharing that, I always appreciate your comments and knowledge of this stuff. would you mind expanding a little on the "service factor of 1" terminology please?? I'm guessing it's similar to a duty cycle rating ?? Would a factor of 1 mean 100% ??. I presume you have an engineering background, did you work for IH by any chance?? Thanks again for your comments Heath ,Nz

    German Diesel DT402

    Don't forget the 402 has a taller block deck height than all the others, so putting this crank into 358 would mean changing rods and or pistons Heath
