  1. What bugs me at consignment auctions around here is people starting the tractors or equipment standing on the ground. with people in front of it and allaround. Most of the equipment is very old and no neutral start or clutch depressed safety. Somebody is going to get killed and others hurt badly. My rule would be . Butt in the seat or the engine doesnt get started.
  2. I lived in Easly SC for 5 yrs in the late 80's I know where you're at. Now live where I was born, Brookville Pa. 1 /12 hrs from Pittsburgh, Youngstown and Penn state. About 45 miles north of MTO.
  3. Yep, I believe there are Hy cap dealers on this site. Heck I may place an order with one of ya. When I looked it up, 884 not listed, 885 is as close as I found. I have the IH parts book, Ill look it up and cross to Hy capacity.
  4. Well Gentlemen, It turns out the rear plastic cap on the back side of the square top was loose. Small socket head capscrew holds it on. I got 3 turns with my fingers before I went after the allen wrench. No worries... I dont really know but i would guess that plastic cap covers the smoke screw. Life is good.
  5. I scrubbed it up with a good coating of Dawn Dish soap this morning before Church. I'll pressure wash this afternoon. Get a good look.
  6. Anyone have a ball park price for a new Hy Capacity clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing and pilot bearing kit from Hy Capacity? This one has been my very busy loader tractor for 10 yrs and its slipping pretty bad. Should have time for a split after the pasture starts to grow and Im done feeding round bales for the spring.
  7. I started my big horse on the far today to move to shop and change fluids and filters . Prep for some spring work. FOund the metube that goes under my RD pump leaking fuel. Must have rusted out over the winter. I dont think i need a pump rebuild as the tractor starts and runs fine. But I d need a replacement tube. Anyone have a source?
  8. Update: Kit arrived from Brillman, they Sent Plug wire kit for a top mount distributer. I have a side mount distributer. Called them to order the correct length wires. Was told it was their mistake as sales person should have asked the question about distributer location. Sent the correct wires would not accept payment for the replacements. Wires were the last parts to install. This skid steer was always a little struggle to start, Crank for 39 seconds most times, even when its warm. With the choke pulled. Tonight I crawled in the seat turned the key on and barely push
  9. I'm with you on the square toes brother. Just bought some new boots as well square toes felt weird. Ended up with traditional round toe ariats. No other brands in stock my size. I usually get red wings. We will see how these hold up
  10. Thats what I have done on the tractors I added it to as well. Hot Coil, New correct Plug wires, New Cap. New Autolite Plugs. Just never thought about adding to this wisconsin. But its getting hard to start. Was going to tune it up. Figure this is money ahead. and should make it more reliable.
  11. Bitty, Ordered the parts from Brillman, Probably arrive in 2 days. Getting a catalog. Nice friendly people to talk me through the ordering process. Very knowledgeable. Probably going to order a few new harnesses from them soon too. Thanks for the tip!
  12. Thanks Bitty. I will order in the morning.
  13. My small Skid steer is a New Holland L445 with the Wisconsin VH4D. Tired of changing Points. too hard to get to. Anyone ever add electronic ignition to a Wisconsin engine? I have updated two different 606 tractors and a couple 400 farmalls. Really makes them start faster. But I dont know about a Wisconsin. Anyone Tried it?
