  1. Yes you can, mine had one too that still had a dead inline coolant heater attaced to it. But this makes it very easy for you to add a heater if you live in a colder climate and plan to use the tractor in the winter. I kept the fittings in case i wanted to put one on down the road. Cheers! Al
  2. Great work. This is exactly what i wanted to do to mine. Thank you for sharing. Al
  3. Welcome! I would love to see your creative conversion. Please share your upgrade! Thank you
  4. If it's a Lucas pump, it might be the shutoff linkage internally that is stuck.
  5. I disagree. The Lucas pump shutoff Rod internally can stick in the pulled position. Then you have a nonstart. Most times a little tap of the hammer will free it. But I have had it stick and had to pull the pump cover.... always push your rod back in after stopping the engine. Al
  6. Thanks for the tip grassfarmer 75. I have seen all Canadian rednecks's videos,they are great and very helpful. I subscibed to him years ago. They are must watch for any owner of a Brit built ih from the era.
  7. Hi Kevin! I am alive and well. I went through a rough patch pre covid lockdown. Since then I have recovered and started a new job as a parts guy for a local tractor dealer. I still want those weights , just not sure when I will be heading out your way. Hang onto them please. Cheers! Al
  8. Wow that's ugly. You have gone in the one place I have yet to visit on my b414. Mine is a pig to steer with the loader on it but not that bad without it. I plan to dig into my steering box too because I need a new output seal. I have been packing grease in there for years procrastinating on rebuilding the box...
  9. Nice find! I love these b414. I too had a messy mangle wiring harness and opted to make a new one from scratch using leftover wire I had kicking around. I added a fuse box and wired in a delco alternator. Don't rush the project and take the time to do your connectors well. I also upped the battery cables to gauge 2. That helped a lot cranking in -20.c last winter. Feel free to pm me if you have questions about your b414. There is not much I have not taken apart on mine. Al
  10. Hi guys Quick question. I have a new leak on the hydraulic control valve again. This time it's from the flow regulator body. Looks like I need to replace the oring. Do I need to drain the tub before removing the c clip to avoid a hy-tran shower or will I pose just what's in the line from the pump to the valve. Thanks al
  11. looks like something @IHRunner would use for his explosion projects
  12. lol works until you get caught buying parts for "someone else's" machine ... sounds like a double funeral in the making. ☠️
  13. Can you tell me what size battery is needed for my 354 gas tractor?  I have looked and looked through my book and can not seem to find where it says a size.

      space is not an issue on the B414,, not sure how big your battery tray is on the 354, you might want to measure before ordering a bettery.


      I used a group 31  size, its more than enough for my diesel with glow plugs.  Might be overkill for a gas engine tractor.


      take care, Al

      note , i also made my own battery cables using #2 awg wire. #4 could not handle the glow plugs well.

  14. Keep us posted if you source a hub that fits the spindle. I might go that route with my w6 down the road if i get told im too hot for stock. Our "open" class would allow aftermarket front wheels. Have fun with your M! AL
