  1. Scott Welcome to the forum. My first thought is you have a pinion bearing problem. When the tractor engine is loading the transmission the pinion bearings are loaded in a positive direction, but when the momentum of the tractor is loading the engine then the pinion bearings are loaded in the opposite direction. This will change position of all the gears on the transmission shaft, which is where the noise is coming from. I would recommend pulling the top transmission cover and inspecting the bearings and gears, before you do more damage to the tractor. GT&T
  2. Don't hold back, tell us how you really feel.
  3. Minnesota Farmall Like Iowaboy has said those are both IH. The mower has been modified by removing the lift handle for the bar, and adding a hydraulic cylinder. I have one exactly like it and it too has been modified by my dad years ago. The hydraulic cylinder addition makes them a joy to use. GT&T
  4. Mule If you turn the steering wheel against the stops, and hold it there, does the steering wheel continue to turn? Does it act like the fluid is leaking through the steering cylinder? It may just have to have the Steering cylinder rebuilt. GT&T

    3pt ?

    Fball1208 I'm not sure what you are saying, but if I am understanding correctly, it sounds like the lower end of the right hand link arm may have stripped out threads. You might try to turn the crank and raise the right hand lift arm up higher, this will pick up new threads in the casting. This won't fix the problem but you will know what is wrong. Hope this helps.

  6. Happy Birthday Todd. Hope you and all the others have many more Happy Birthdays. Fred
  7. What Diesel Doctor said is very accurate, I would suggest that you try to tighten the pivots for the flyweights by re-riveting them. They may well tighten up just fine by tightening the rivets on an anvil. If they do that will be an easy fix, if they don't you have lost nothing. Hope this works. GT&T

    Good news!

    MTO That is great news, please tell him how many posts are on here just about him. God bless you both. GT&T
  9. IHhogfarmer I just saw an add in the Heritage Iron magazine, they said to call ahead and see what might be any restrictions with this covid 19 . GT&T

    Sherman vs Tiger

    Dads706 There is/are documentaries on you tube with, interviews by survivors, that might be what you are asking about. I will see if I can find it and post a link. GT&T https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bj0AzL95Weg
  11. 1466fan Those are some beautiful pictures, and looks like it has really yielded a quality crop. Not many people can realize how much work and expense is represented in those pictures.😃 GT&T
  12. I have a couple of these engines that act just like Waskadaman has described. When one of them starts up and dies, I remove the inlet fuel line from the Injection pump and take a small punch and insert it in the fitting on the rear of the pump. A very light bump on the check valve in the pump will unstick the inlet check valve and the tractor will run until it is left to set for a couple of months. What must I do to prevent this or replace the check valves? Thank you. GT&T
  13. MI sparky The Torsion Damper on these 400 series engines, is designed to remove the torsional vibration from the crankshaft. Torsional vibration is a rotary or oscillating vibration, that cannot be felt in most cases. However this oscillating vibration creates so much rotary vibration that it will break crankshafts and can cause excessive wear to clutch disc and transmission splines. It will also cause gear rattle in the transmission. This torsional vibration can also be transmitted to the fan by way of the fan and water pump belts. If the damper rubber is loose, the damper will slip and will not remove the torsional vibration. I hope this may help you and others to understand this principle. The things that I can't see or feel are hard for me to understand. GT&T
  14. JW Now that we know that the problem is in the Range transmission, Ole 815 is right. There is a locator tool for positioning the top cover over the shift linkage. If you do not have this tool, look carefully where the spring loaded detent roller needs to be located when the cover is lowered into place. Then when lowering the cover push the arm, spring and roller over with a thin piece of metal or screwdriver with a notch in the end. I hope this helps. GT&T
  15. MIsparky I would suggest that you should inspect the front damper on the crankshaft. There is a rubber isolator between the inner and outer hub. There are two alignment marks, one on the inner hub and another on the outer hub, these marks are aligned when the damper is built. If the rubber bond between the 2 hubs is slipping then the marks will get out of alignment. The front damper is designed to remove torsional vibration from the crankshaft, if the damper is slipping it can cause the crankshaft to break, and may be why you are having failure of the fan drive.

  16. Taken Apr. 14, 2019 The hose reel has 10" perforated field drain tile on it. I built this reel from van trailer axles, it has a hydraulic tilt reel and the center spear is made from the trailer axle and hub. GT&T
  17. Todd He does as good a job at craftsmanship as you do! Fred
  18. That was easy! Thanks for sharing that with us, many times people will ask for help and then never come back with the "rest of the story". GT&T
  19. JW Have you tried to shift the range transmission, while the linkage is unhooked from the shifter control? This will tell you if it is the shifter in the range transmission or if it is the linkage in the console that is locked. GT&T

    For the elderly here

    I had about forgot about that. Thanks for the reminder. I also remember jacking up that roll around floor jack, but I guess you were better behaved and didn't do that. Fred
  21. Overheal Welcome to the forum. I think you will find that this is a premier forum, You have an answer and a good one, in an hour and a half, complete with a part number, and an approximate price. And it didn't cost anything, anything better than that, and someone would have to buy it for you, deliver it to you, and install it for you. GT&T
