  1. I had a collision with my 1510. They were parked nose to nose in a shed. I was driving the 1510 with no brakes. It didn’t stop when it hit the 6x6 block, it jumped it. The Loadstar took it hard. The 1510 was spared. It’s taken me about two years to face the problem. Now I want to pay some attention to the Loadstar. I was able to straighten the grill, but these others are kinked and I’m no body man.
  2. Hello All, Been inactive for a long time. Life gets in the way. Anyway, I’m working on my 1978 Loadstar 1600 and I need some body panels. I was wondering about a source. I need the rounded panel to the passenger side of the grill and the panel that crosses below the grill. Does anyone know of a source for these? Thanks.
  3. What goes on at a winter convention? Is it like a smaller Round Up? Tractors on display? Vendors? Parts corral? Got one coming up next week. Thinking about a road trip.
  4. I know the arrangement, it's the orientation of the seat that I am unsure of. I assume the poppet rest in the beveled side of the seat, as I have pictured in the second photo.
  5. Finally got the parts today. The old "seal" or "disc" was destroyed, as well as the "valve." I'm not 100% sure how the new "disc" goes in. I think the valve seats in the disc like the second picture I've included, but it could work the other way as well. Anyone know?
  6. That is my first assumption as well.
  7. Got it. It is pressed in, it was just stuck. It is definitely damaged. The poppet and seat are worn and misshaped. Now hopefully Messicks has the parts I need. I'm getting excited now. I bought this tractor last February and in classic Johnny Cash style, I'm getting it back in action "one piece at a time." Maybe by the one year mark, it will be ready for a road trip.
  8. As some of you may remember, I have been working on the hydraulic system on my 1964 606. I had "hard spots" in the steering, which would cause times in which the steering became difficult momentarily. I have now found what I believe to be the culprit. On the steering control (pilot) valve, there is a "pressure check valve" on the input port of the valve. When I removed the control valve, the "poppet" fell out and it looks clear that there is further damage inside the check valve. The Blue Ribbon service manual GSS-1337-C, says "inspect the pressure check valve poppet and it's seat for grooves or defects that may result in leakage. If the poppet and seat seem to be defective, replace them." What it does not say is how to remove the parts. There is a retainer ring that comes out easily. The next thing I see is a damaged rubber "seal." How do the innards come out? I don't want to do any more damage, so I'm hoping someone here knows. Thanks as always.
  9. I finally got the pump put back in and fired it up. At idle, everything seems fine. As I throttle up, the hose from the flange to the steering valve spool gets really noisy and if I grab it, I can feel big bubbles going through it. This hose runs from the "rear" pump to the valve spool. The "front" pump goes to the 3 point lift. That hose feels fine---no bubbles. It steers fine while sitting still, but I haven't taken it out yet. What now?
  10. Finally got the new parts. The new suction tube is shorter than the one that was in it. The seal is close to where the original was. Why is the tube shorter?
  11. That would be a once in a lifetime trip. Oh the memories you would make.
  12. Great. Thanks for the info. I'll order a new one tomorrow.
  13. I would like to order my parts tomorrow and am hoping for a bit more information. Does the suction tube come with the seal installed on it? Is that the "kit" that is available for $29? I am willing to spend the $29 for a new one if you guys think that seal may be the culprit. Mine looks good and seats well, but I don't want to go through this again if it turns out my seal isn't quite right. I really appreciate the input.
