  1. e bourassa and sons radville saskatchewan makes after market 3 pth's, have one on my 606 and really like it, has built in float but also can apply down pressure,can get some pictures if you would like
  2. yep, learned to swear in four different languages working on those things, tried every disconnect tool snap on made.
  3. one more picture, also had to make the lift rod and chute control
  4. forgot pictures, don't know why they are upside down sorry.
  5. took the shredder off the 1650 and installed a qs42a that was given to me along with tire chains and added weights to the rear. the snow thrower is/was in tough condition as the rotor is wore thin and really bent up but with a bit of time it came back to usable shape. the rear weights i bought at a auction years ago they are 10 pounds each, made the bracket to bolt to the draw bar and mounts to attach it to the tiller mount.
  6. customer has a deutz 7145 that broke the cooling fan belts, went and looked at it, how the heck do you change the belts, front bolster runs tight against the crank pulleys, will i have to split the bolster away a few inches? this one has me stumped, any help would be appreciated, thanks.....dieselman.
  7. tough low rpm engine, have fixed many with the ticking problem caused by low oil pressure, usually cam bearings are wore out causing lifter failure or jumping out of the lifter bore, bent push rods etc. hard to find oil with any amount of zinc in its formulation but i always use 15w40 or straight 30 weight oil as modern gasoline engine oils lack a lot of the lubrication additives needed by these old engines. best of luck to you!
  8. well this is one of many favourites, love it because it is all original except for the muffler
  9. 2007 gmc sierra classic sle, 335,000 kilometers, love it. sorry for the crappy pics, shop is full.
  10. thanks hillman for the clarification, i guess it will end up in the scrap bin, don't believe there were any hillside combines on our flat prairie land here, i am sucker at these auctions, anything red catches my eye although i paid next to nothing for the valve.
  11. wow, pricey valve, thanks guys this site never fails to deliver, so many knowledgeable people on here totally awesome!
  12. hi all, any idea what this control valve is used for? another auction purchase i made, it has one single acting spool and one double acting spool, . part number is 588 338 R91 thanks in advance.....dieselman.
  13. under all the wrapping this what i have for blowing snow, my old 606 diesel with a 282 from a 706 in it and a 7 foot blower, works very well but makes the old girl roll coal in heavy snow, reason for having it all covered up is it blows the engine heat back on to the operator station, usually nice and toasty to run and i run number 2 fuel year round so no fear of gelling up the fuel system, old tractor like me but i love it. the jobber 3pth allows me to put down pressure on the plow.

    well as i suspected the balancing gears let go and broke the block and cracked the oil pan, my 16 hp has a larger diameter crankshaft on the pto side so my electric clutch or the standard clutch won't fit, oil pan would have swapped over but the flywheel is also larger, i guess i will be looking for another engine.

    well time to start another project, picked up a 129 with tiller and mower, has been sitting for years with a rod out the side of the block, i have a 16 hp kohler i want to put into it, can i use the electric clutch off a 1450 and i also got a QA42A blower given to me, wil it fit on the 129? thanks
  16. hi ralph, i do lots of work on all makes of old trucks with the eaton 2 speed, there are new complete assemblies available that use a circuit board instead of the limit switches, i get mine from westrans in regina, not cheap but it keeps these older trucks rolling.
  17. most wrecking yards here in western canada would have all you need, not sure if your 7 speed is direct drive in seventh or over drive. i think if your going for that major of a change might as well put a thirteen speed over drive in.
  18. 2 speed usually reduces the ratio when in low range, not sure if you need more torque or more speed, hope this helps....dieselman.
  19. very good friend and neighbor called and asked if i wanted to buy his 1256, i said of course, has not run in many years but was in a shed, went over today with batteries, coolant and other stuff, starter is dragging bad but with a sniff of starting fluid it took off, drove it home 2.5 miles, runs like a champ, t/a works as it should. it has many oil leaks and poor tires. went back to pay him as we didn't talk about the price, he only wanted 500.00 dollars for it, i tried to pay him more but that is all he would take and included another 1256 with a blown engine that has around 100 hours on rebuilt t/a and trans and diff. i am so blessed with great friends.
  20. have had a-fib for 10 years and who knows how long before i was diagnosed, still put in long days until i turned 65 and said i was going to slow down, well seems my shop is still busy even though i tell customers no, but after being in business for 40 years and having loyal customers i find it hard to say no, but i am pushing 67 my stamina is slipping and i have some upper body strength which makes me mad i can't lift what i used to. so my customers know i am not as fast as i used to be and are very patient. not many young guys do carb work so the old guys are still in demand. frankly i am scared to quit as it seems that guys who quit altogether don't live long around here. now i only work a max of 5 hours a day and enjoy sitting with the my wife chatting and watch all the nature around us, when you are busy making a living and raising a family a lot of that gets over looked. i guess my thinking is it is time to enjoy the simple things in life, sorry for the long story....dieselman.

    we have many deutz farm tractors in our area they are all high hour machines some over 10,000, only problem has been in the transmissions but the engines are super tough.

    bought several fuel tanks at auction, this one fit the best, that deutz sounds interesting no rad problems to deal with.

    all the hoses are 7/8 heater hose and the metal pipes were on the engine, just had to heat and bend them to the shape i needed. the fan is from an old Polaris quad and i made my own mounts, took a bit of measuring and bending of the mounts in a vice to get it mounted how i wanted it. used that style of fan because of the low amp draw as my alternator is only 27 amps, worked very well. used for about an hour and a half pulling 2 diamond type harrows to help dry my yard out and it ran a constant 185 degrees which is thermostat opening temp on that engine. filled with fuel before and after at it used about a quart of diesel. i am having so much fun with it it almost feels illegal, haha.....dieselman.
