  1. Ugh, my wife watches that too - I feel your pain.

    Battery Covers

    Aftermarket covers are not made quite right, the reason that the inside of the lid goes up when you tighten the hooks is because the outer edge is not contacting the edge of the battery. Maybe it's because the posts are taller, I'm not sure. I put a piece of weather strip on the bottom side of the cover where it should contact the battery and a thin piece of rubber where the posts would possibly touch and made them work but they are a PITA.
  3. I had to replace the flex tube on the wings a couple years ago, they had split open. When the wings would flex the tube would come apart and lose vacuum
  4. MinnesotaFarmall could be right, looks backwards to me too, it also looks like you will need to shim the steering arm to raise it so the cylinder will line up with the ball joint
  5. I use some black goop called WHIP on the cables and posts, comes in a small bottle from the auto parts store, completely eliminated the corrosion but you gotta start clean.

    That would be the easier thing to do but he bought the tractor non running as a project for a grade in a college course on rebuilding engines , not replacing it with something else. The tractor had the turbo on it already, he is just trying to make it more durable in the process. Appreciate all your input.
  8. You hit the nail on the head, PCA became a dirty word in our house in the mid '80s.

    Makes good sense, does anyone know the difference between a TO4B 9096 and TO4 B80 turbo, the latter is cheaper for some reason

    Do you need keystone rings to run the cooling jets? I had one mechanic tell me that It may use oil if you don't .
  11. Well they finally found parts for the shift valve and got it together , called me today and said lube pressure is higher now which makes me feel better, maybe I'll get this thing home yet.
  12. I believe your mfd output shaft seal is leaking into what should be a dry hole, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    My son is working on his 766 project tractor at college, this tractor has an m&w turbo kit on it . This thing appears after tearing it down to have gotten hot, three questions - the turbo has been replaced with a TO4B9096, his instructor and a diesel shop both said that's plenty turbo for a 360 so what should be on it, question 2 - does the radiator have the same number of tubes as say a 1066, question 3 - can cooling jets be installed on a non turbo 360 block, he said it looks like the port is there but is plugged with shot or something, and bonus question 4 - would a 360 turbo engine from something like a bus have a larger oil pan?
