  1. 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
  2. looks like something @IHRunner would use for his explosion projects
  3. lol works until you get caught buying parts for "someone else's" machine ... sounds like a double funeral in the making. ☠️
  4. 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.

  5. 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
  6. Converting the tip loader to Hydraulic action cant be overly complicated. My 1501 loader looks identical to the tip version, it just has an extra bolt-on bracket for the cylinder. Who ever set it up added an open centre valve pack in-line from the pump to the hydraulic 3pt head.
  7. I love those Volvo BM. I had the pleasure of using a bunch 800 and 900 models on a local potato farm.
  8. looks like horrible photo-shopping to me, the teeth on the right side of the bucket are sloping down to the center instead of up....
  9. They are simple to service, the not fun part is getting the assembly back on. that floating disc inside the ear is not fun to line up with the splines. get read to wrestle with it... I used cheap mahindra parts off ebay on mine. two years later, no complaints. I hope this helps Al
  10. @Simon Friis Here's some pix of the brake setup on my B414 , they should be the same on your beast.
  11. @Dell lots of good advice above. I have seen an H out pull a well built SM. You have lots of homework to do. I myself had the M vs SM debate in my head and i walked away with the W6 in the long run. For me, MPH and weight where the deciding factors. Weight distribution and gear ratios will really be your deciding factor if your pegging an M vs SM. Engine wise both will end up costing the same to build. Here's some questions to ask yourself when deciding on a horse * class type ( stock or mod/open not stock etc ) *class speed limit ( if any ) * Are T/A allowed. this can be a game changer. * tire type * room to grow to next level/ class. *budget *competition *hauling your machine around. *fun or serious competition for points standings No one can tell you what to do, but we can sure help you not make the same mistakes we have in the past. 🙂 I have had the chance to pull a many different antique tractors in recent years, often against their respective owners in the same class, i often finish ahead of them with the same tractor. this is what i find keeps antique tractor pulling fun, big wallets do not guarantee a win. it sure helps , but nothing out pulls experience and properly reading the track. and of course a tap on the back from lady luck 🙂 They say pulling as addictive... they are NOT kidding, i hope you know what your getting into...😎 Al
