  1. A late C263 crankshaft supercedes into a D282 engine. I have done that swap.
  2. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Does anyone actually carry a check book every day.
  7. Nice , I always liked that series and model.
  8. Foaming coil cleaner works on cars and house a/c. Not sure about paint used to use “flesh eating cleaner” but whatever you do rinse everything down and then rinse it down twice more and use gloves. Will destroy roofs and anything else in the way. Will take grease out. Some from McMaster and grainger use in well ventilated areas.
  9. You have the early teledeph system. Same as early 60 series. The one on the brothers 240 is the later style. All of ours have worked over the years. 230,240, and 460.
  10. I bought a large bolt. Grade 8 that would be just long enough that when put in from the bottom have room for a washer and nut with room for a hair pin clip on top.
  11. Missed that was mentioned earlier.
  12. unless it is bolted down.
  13. I have seen people strap a child's snow slide toboggan under the hitch, ones that will roll up. Seriously we put 16.9 on our 686 and that helped a lot.
  14. Parts came in.... and one of the hoses, the end that is pushed into the base of the filter has been smashed flat. Just got to love parts handlers...
  15. He is also not dirty enough to be at the cursing stage. Just mildly inconvenienced. Mine usually go like this- engine oil cooler lines leaking on the Suburban- order hoses- get hoses-take old ones off- put the new ones on underneath engine- find the fitting that goes into radiator are a different size, have to put old ones back on because I can't close the garage door. Meanwhile the oily grease from the leak is all painted over my arms and shirt. Now I am not happy and the store does not know if the other set labeled for the Suburban are the right ones, either way they have to order them. To be continued in a back yard garage in Wisconsin.
  16. Ok there is a gasket on the C263 and the D282 so I' m thinking there is one on the crank to block. Make sure you use a silicone sealer on the bolts or it will/can leak through the bolts of the flywheel.
  17. Dad would pull the sickle. Open the foot vice so the section would just slide through but the bar would rest on the vise and then hit the back if the section with a ball peen, dropping the sections on the floor and pulling the bar down until done. Then on the anvil with a punch drive the rivets. He then on the anvil put the sections on and peen them over. If I remember correctly a 7 foot could be done in 45 minutes.
  18. Yes the T/A was great but try cutting hay with a 990 on a hillside with a Super H and the field is full of pocket gopher mounds and Badger holes. Having an independent pto was Heaven. Makes a new meaning to having your act together. Shift , start pto, drive, raise and lower haybine (990 was much better than the PT10) and hang on all at once. One more note none of our fields were square because of the contour strips.
  19. Both Iowa and sno correct on filter. Round object to the right in first picture is the screen that only opens if the filter is plugged bypassing the filter. It should be put in the new filter before putting the cover on. They can be a pain sometimes. Steering assist is a small piston connected to a very expensive rack between your legs when sitting on the tractor. The rack helps the right side cam/lever move when turning. Same unit is used on 300,350, and 460 utilities only. I have had two that were broken and for awhile you could not get parts. Recently saw ASAP or some one else with the part. My 300 U is about worn out and does strange things when backing up, but that repair is for a later date.
  20. One thing I keep coming back to is the settings for the D and S firmly set in their detents.
  21. I need clarification here. I was taught that this is considered a modified open center system. The unloader valve moving changes the flow with little pressure to flow with pressure when the pilot circuit of the valve is changed through the recesses of the valve spool being changed when you move the valve control handle. Or was I taught wrong. Here is some info from the service manuals.
  22. I got fittings and went right on the plate the pump is mounted to also but this sounds like either the valve bodies are junk or the pressure block or both if the given you said about pump was replaced. One plug is for the power steering the second for the main pump. I should also add maybe you restricted it too much and blew the pump which I have heard from past mechanics, been told it can be destroyed in seconds. Not sure I can add any more. Sounds weird that you can get pressure occasionally but not steady.
