  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. 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
  14. 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.
  15. I love those Volvo BM. I had the pleasure of using a bunch 800 and 900 models on a local potato farm.
  16. 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....
  17. 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
  18. @Simon Friis Here's some pix of the brake setup on my B414 , they should be the same on your beast.
  19. @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
  20. Hi Lucas, There was not seal on my B414, my carrier looks like the one on the right, there was a copper shim that looked like it acted as the seal too.
