  1. Ah, paint the engine day! I’m ready to put this thing back together and see if it’s runs!
  2. Our oil pump cover is pretty badly warped, which I've learned is fairly common. I plan to switch to coarser paper and sand it flat, polish it to 320 grit, and add 1/4" steel clamping plates between the bolts as suggested on an archived post google found on Red Power from a few years ago. Are there any other ideas I should consider?
  3. That looks like the two small filters someone mentioned goes in a 340, and gets incorrectly crossed to the 240 filter. I can't remember where I read that, maybe one of the old threads here or YT. 340: #24 is 375085r91 240: #4 is the paper filter - 375078r91 We are going to put the screen in without the mushy paper filter.
  4. The filter is not available from Case-IH as best I can tell. I looked up the part number, went to google, and the one or two dealers who showed it as available could not get it when I called.
  5. I removed a broken M16 bolt in a loader mount on a JD1026 last weekend. It was a rare victory for the easy out. I explained to him that easy outs were improperly named, since they are never easy and rarely result in 'out'.
  6. So... I bought a $10 toaster oven today and it does seem to work. Even swiped my wife's oven thermometer so I can set the temp reasonably accurately. How long does it take to cook a gear and get it up to temperature?
  7. The pics above include my 17 year old daughter and almost 15 year old son - that's the biggest blessing They willingly get up early and go. We had a better than normal turn out for that ramp. It has frequently been me (46), my son (14), my co-leader (58ish) and 3 retired folks - 65ish, 75, and 80. I didn't mean to derail the original thread. I pondered the Masonic Lodge for a while, finally decided I could do good through my church, and I didn't have time to devote to another organization.
  8. I try to get the men and youth at church out once every month or two to work in our community - we have a lot of fun and usually do a pretty decent job of helping someone out.
  9. ^^^^ above my pay grade... I'm going to look for a toaster oven or hot plate at the thrift store and do it all in the shop - I think the line would get drawn at using the kitchen table for assembly, and the time to get outside might be important.
  10. Old crank was cracked and the journal was badly worn. I got a replacement out of a salvage yard and had it ground.
  11. You are probably right. The cam gear was about 1/4" from fully seated on the cam. In other words, it was out towards the cover too far. The crank gear was loose on the crank due to the journal wearing down as well. I tend to be extra cautious with parts like this due to my lack of experience, I guess. My industrial background always says to put things back together as close to perfect as possible as well. In this case it is $95 worth of insurance.
  12. Turns out I can measure the alignment, the keyway is slightly off, maybe less than half a tooth. The keyways are aligned in this pic
  13. 1 - the cam gear was not installed correctly, and the gears are worn half way across the gear tooth. If they were put together correctly now they wouldn't mesh correctly. 2 - I counted teeth from the key way each way on old and new. On the old gear, the timing mark was at tooth 16, on the new gear the timing marks were at tooth 17. I looked because one of the parts guys at Steiner warned me the marks may be off when I was talking to him about a replacement crankshaft. Visually, the keyway on the new gear looks to be slightly off in relation to the teeth compare to the old gear, but I don't have a good way to measure that.
  14. First, I have very little experience putting engines together. I plan on asking a lot of questions. I bought new cam and crankshaft gears from Steiner. During one phone conversation the parts guy said "you may want to check the timing marks on the cam gear". I compared them tonight and the marks are a tooth off on the replacement gear. The crankshaft gear marks are correct. Now for today's question - what is the proper way to press the gear on the crankshaft? Is it ok to stand it up in a hydraulic press and just press it on, or does the crankshaft need to be support so the stress doesn't bend it?
