  1. Saw a video somewhere about a guy using a hose from the rear ports to prime. Not sure where or who it was.
  2. At least he was not experimenting with brake cleaner from a can and a flame like my son did...Garage still has the burn mark up one wall.
  3. Might have a small washer if I remember correctly.
  4. We tried cutting hay with a draper. Lets just say wet pocket gopher mounds are not compatible with a draper.
  5. Where is the drum roll when you need it.
  6. We had a 1466 with a white cab, for a few years and a neighbor sold my Dad a 5 bottom 20 inch 720 toggle trip plow. Went out to try it out in an old hayfield. First of all the only suit case weights we had were on another tractor. Well we dropped that puppy into the ground and saw a lot of sky as everything in the front went way up:-) After that first scare we were more careful and the tractor pulled it OK. Went and dropped a bottom off, and moved things forward. We could now plow without weights and full gear faster. I think the only time we ever plugged it was when my brother got too close to a fence line on rented ground and sucked in a barbed wire fence some one had taken down and just laid it up against the remaining fence.
  7. Yes, 720 moved tail wheel ahead and don't forget to move the back land side forward also.
  8. Yeah about the tractor trailer with the suicide sticker. And then they proceed to drive in the left lane only--maybe a exaggeration but seen it more than once. First cousin had a 600 and a 650. Poor guy died last year, I wonder what happened to them. Those earlier tractors had a certain grace about them.
  9. My first thought is that they were going to do a clutch job and when they removed the last center bolt, they lost control and it tipped over possibly hurting some one and the survivor said get it out of my sight.
  10. Part in the red box on the diagram above is bolted to the bottom of the bolster and controls the steering assist.
  11. Like mentioned it could be the spring. My self I would disconnect the shaft to make sure it is not affecting it because down at the bottom it has to allow the stub coming out to move in and out. My one 560 the spring did slide over the washers and caused something like it. Attached pic. You do have to drop the bottom stub shaft out first before you can pull this out. If I remember correctly the is something holding all the parts , some kind of a keeper. All this stuff can be dropped out the bottom but with a loader on it will be a pain. Dropping that side rail makes it go really easy. Support the tractor if you go that route.
  12. Looks like a clean tractor. Those wide fronts, I have had two and got along fine with them. One was on a 706 D.
  13. There was a bulletin of which cranks depending on the hardness you could use in that series block, also the gear for the timing train is the exact same part number. Not sure if I can find it though as that was 4 or more years ago.
  14. Actually the diesel crank ended up in the gasoline engine when I think about it. Still running and the guy who bought it off me still rubs it into my face how well it runs, he got the better running one of the two I had at that time.
  15. A late C263 crankshaft supercedes into a D282 engine. I have done that swap.
  16. Apparently they ran into them too often. Or in our case widened the shed door unplanned like we did with a 1466 and a new shed.

    786 engine

    our 766 has a 360
  18. Well some one may need to correct this but; When you steer the collar of the actuator moves a tiny amount forwards or back based on the direction you are steering. When it moves a channel(think valve) opens up letting fluid move pressurizing the correct side to assist in the steering. If the last knuckle down by the valve does not let the shaft move in and out a little it will defeat the steering assist. If some one took it apart the little stub shaft that goes up into the valve can be in the wrong place. Also I have seen some one weld the last knuckle on and then it will not work also. Splines have been stripped out etc. don't have the book with me right now.
  19. Wish I could remember where, but there was a guy I believe here with a 656 that he highly modded the motor. He did dyno it with various exhaust strategies even to split manifolds. Results were interesting.
  20. Does anyone actually carry a check book every day.
  21. Nice , I always liked that series and model.
