  1. "Original Hy-Tran"......You probably should offer up some proof of what it actually is. Travis
  2. Those rear stands aren't as heavy as I'd like. They would work for holding the main center section of the rear housing after you've taken every thing off, but I don't trust them to holding up a rear end on an 86 series when doing a clutch job.... Travis

    1466 Rops ?

    The decal/stripe seems to be a bad attempt at a repaint while adding the late 86 series tri-stripe.... Travis

    Yep, like Dan said, it's a factory 4-post ROPS....those became the factory option around '75, if I remember correctly. Travis
  5. Tractorseats.com (K&M) or Hy-Capacity is where you want to buy your tractor seats. They are quality built. They will last. And they bolt right on. Travis
  6. Definitely get yourself an owners manual for your tractor....It will explain exactly what you need to mount weights properly. Travis
  7. I'm with J-Mech and CIHTECH as far as cleaning goes. I use the Roloc Bristle discs and the Super Scraper along with a good old putty knife and razor blade scraper to clean. Indian head/Wolf's head gasket shellac for some gaskets. Aviation form-a-gasket for some other gaskets. Grey RTV in some places where a gasket isn't used at all. Copper Coat for some head gaskets, Silver paint for some other head gaskets. Nothing at all for some other gaskets. Crisco All-Vegetable Shortening in a can for cylinder sleeve o-rings, and pretty much any other o-ring. Trust me on thi
  8. The black stripe argument gets going a lot on social media... Plain and simple, there is simply no cosmetic or physical change that proves whether a tractor is a "true" black stripe or not. There are definite serial number breaks that are listed in the parts manuals that can tell you whether a tractor is a true black stripe or not. After 40+ years, there has been a lot (A LOT) of things changed on any tractor...so you really can't tell if a tractor is an actual "true" black stripe just by those changes. Travis
  9. With the amount of reman injectors out there now, the letter on the injector tube doesn't make a difference if they aren't original injectors. Any reman injectors that I've put in are a mix 'n match of letters on the tube. The nozzle tip is the part that makes the difference. Travis
  10. There's a couple of them around this area with that early frame rail. One's a 1066 the other is a 966. Travis
  11. So many people take advantage of this program it's not even funny. I know of at least one person that has went through a salvage yard and wrote down serial #'s to get free gas caps. Travis
  12. The biggest block heater I've ever seen available for a 361-407 was 650 watt. Still not big enough. Most people put two in. On these engines your best best is to install a tank heater if you really need it to start when it's cold. Travis

    Remove your centerlink cover and inspect your draft control linkage. I'd suspect that the linkage has slipped around to the wrong side. Travis
  14. I already answered this on your facebook post...Anyway, since everything except the RPM works on the data center, trace the wires between the data center and rpm transducer. Test your RPM transducer if you can't find a problem in the wiring. Should be pretty easy... Also, once you get the RPM's to show, your pto speed will work, too. ? Travis
  15. Those digital hour meters are accurate.... Cable driven hour meters are only accurate at PTO speed... Travis
