  1. Does it have clamp style wheels. Seen an axle strip out the wheel casting. Tractor wouldnt move. It sat, and axle spun inside the wheel. Differential sent power out to that axle. Didnt make a noise while axle was spinning ...... So like mentioned. Try diff loc and/ or brake pedals to see if it will move. Simple stuff first
  2. Glad no one got hurt! Wow, how can it fall that far and not catch a latch. When you raise hoist, each post has safety latches that click into slot as it raises, don't it? To lower dont you have to hold the release for safety latches? I can see it maybe possible to fall when lowering. It looks like same brand of hoist we had in a place I worked.
  3. Flew over me while spraying beans this morning. Jumped out stood and waved, and grabbed a pic. Jus cool to see it flying. It is kinda far away. Was trying to line up tractor and plane....I took too much time.😜
  4. Works great like pete23 says. Dont even have to take the hoods off. Remove the battery from under seat so battery box isn't heavy. Jus remove the starter. I use a bigger floor jack under Ta housing, split it at clutch, separate it, and lower it down and roll rear housing and Ta housing out from under fuel tank and steering column. I do the same with 66 series when doing Ta job
  5. It looked terrible on the local news 'Kimt' They were caught up in the current, and headed down the river. Some, kinda floating, but several with heads sticking up out of water bellowing. ☹
  6. Hope everyone has a good time at the show. Been sitn here thinking about all the nice Red tractors I'm missing out on seeing
  7. It is at Mason City Ia Airport for a few days. $475 I could have went for a ride. This plane was finished being built May 1945. Never saw combat duty. Pilot today said it was used for some surveillance and mapping. Later duty it was used for spraying some insects in southern states. The spray had linseed oil in it, that is what preserved the rivets and panels. It was parked for many years before it was restored. Engines are 9 cylinder. Was neat to see take off and land. Smooth and slow.....jus awesome. Cant imagine what it would have been like sitn in those turrets running a gun.
  8. Thanks guys. Seems like they get closer together the older you get!
  9. How many times has flywheel been ground? Every time it moves the clutch assembly farther from the optimal release travel and geometry of throw out assembly. I would install an assembly from same clutch supplier. Replace flywheel most likely. Hard to believe but these tractors are 40ish years old. To be able to get the clearance on throw out bearing and clutch fingers and not worry about, use a spring to help with the slack on all the linkage. I dont worry so much about a certain pedal freeplay measurement. I make sure bearing has clearance and clutch releases. Then I adjust tranny brake and dump valve, my opinion and method......right or wrong.....it works😁 Edit, also make sure your cab isomounts are good, they can effect your travel of throw out bearing as you push clutch pedal down.
  10. Throttle like mentioned needs adjusted. I can tell that the cable end is prolly not right. Sometimes the spring inside that cable end with stud will rust up. Check it out. Jus doesnt look right. But maybe its jus trying to push pump arm farther off than it needs too. That fuel line........o my....🤪
  11. Keeping caught right up lol. One right behind the other.... not bad for a one man band! All 4 rigs in field today, grabbed a pic. Tree in the way with jus a couple rounds left to plant. I put it off, moving tree as long as I could....

    I'll be watching. Thanks for letting us follow along. What is it that is bad that your going after? Or jus going to rebuild it because of high hours. Sounds like a good project, I thought about bolting inner wheel to outer hub like that also when I worked on mine......

    Battery Covers

    +1. My 966 has had the covers removed since the early 80's. The batteries sit there fine. Plus nice to hook the chemical tote pump to for 12v power. The cables and post get washed off alot easier and dont corrode as bad.
  14. Put offers in. Try to sell 60% or better ahead. Today I switched a field from beans. Planted some more corn today. Rained on way home......Will switch more to corn if I can plant more before 1st of June.
