    1966 T6 Drott price and problem

    This tractor would be a T6 series 62 with a 6 cyl. C-263 engine. What is the condition of the undercarriage? Does the engine smoke? Does everything work but the right steering clutch? The value would depend on the condition and what broke.

    How to tension track on ih 500

    If the tensioner has not been serviced in years the grease maybe dry and blocking the hole under the grease fitting.

    How to tension track on ih 500

    I have a '67 500. There is a grease fitting on one end of the tensioner. If you can't get grease to enter the tensioner, remove the grease fitting and replace it with a new one. If you are getting grease into the tensioner then the inner cylinder should push the idler wheel forward or grease should leak out around the seals. if the seals are bad it maybe lacking in grease and may take quite a bit of grease to get the inner cylinder to move. I was able to get parts to rebuilt the tensioners at a local hydraulic shop. The hard part was getting the tensioner off the rod going to the spring assembly. If the tracks are bad you should have enough room to get the tensioner out without splitting the track.

    IH 500 hydraulic blade controls

    Your driveway looks great compared to what it looked like the day I was there. Have you built the new house yet? I'll check the adjustments on my brakes and maybe tighten them a little. I'll take the spool valve apart and see if it has rust in it. The control valve for the winch was rusty so I cleaned it up and put in new parts and it works fine, so maybe the spool valves are rusty.
  5. I worked my 500 pretty hard for 3.5 hours yesterday working on the tractor pull track at or club grounds. The tractor worked great but I still don't have the steer brakes working right. It steers better forward than backward and steers harder after working it for a while. Should I try tightening the brake bands? The second problem is the controls for the 6-way blade they are very stiff particularly the one that tilts the blade. This made it very difficult to smooth out the track. Moving the levels forward and backward is not too bad but the sideways movement is very hard. Is there something I should take apart and clean? I can take and post a picture of the controls it that would help.

    Undercarriage specs

    I got them from Crawler Heaven. They list the TD at 15 New =28.00", 25% worn = 28.15", 50% worn = 28.34", 75% worn = 28.54", 100% worn = 28.78". Hope this helps.

    Track Chains etc

    It looks like amsundercarriage.com has 500 undercarriage parts. I did not look at actual availability or price.

    Ih 500 clutches

    That would be right. Make sure when you reassemble that the teeth on the first fiber disk mesh with the center hub. When I pulled mine apart the teeth were missing from the first fiber disk and the second one was cracked. It was not assembled correctly and I had to buy two fiber disks before reassembling. There was less than 500 hours on the clutches.

    IH 500 Dozer Reverse really weak PLEASE help!

    My 500 hydraulics whined and chattered because it was low on hytrans fluid. I filled it to the mark on the dipstick and the chattering stopped. The low fluid level also prevented the dozer from climbing a pile of gravel because the reverser was not getting fluid. This would not explain the weak reverse. I think I would see if adjusting the lineage arm would help before I worked on the reverse clutch pack. The arm may not pushed far enough to fully engage the reverse clutch pack.

    Ih 500 clutches

    There should be one fiber disk on the back side of the snap ring. The steel disk can move across the snap ring. I had one thrust washer stick to the bearing and didn't come out. I have a file that acbjohn sent me that really helped. I sent you a message--email and I'll send the manual. It's a pdf file and for some reason they are not approved files.

    IH 500 Dozer Reverse really weak PLEASE help!

    I've rebuilt the gas engine and the steering clutches and brakes but have not messed with the reverser or power shift because they look complicated. My previous tractors had standard main clutch and no reverser. I need at some point to look at the linkage for the power shift and maybe the transmission because I currently can't use 4th gear (goes into gear but won't come out without a great deal of force) and I haven't tried 5th. I assume you've checked the hytrans fluid and it's good. Have you replaced the filter on the reverser? I would think the bubbles in the fluid could affect function of the reverser but not sure why it would affect reverse more than forward. Do the blade hydraulics become slower? I guess the question is where the hydraulic pump is getting air.

    IH 500 Dozer Reverse really weak PLEASE help!

    Did you check the linkage adjustment on the reverser? It may not be allowing it to move fulling into the reverse position. I have not had any problem with my reverser so I have not made any adjustment to the linkage. The drive train service manual should show how to adjust the linkage. I can look it up if you don't have the service manuals.

    Hy trans vs 303

    I buy it at Blain's Farm & Fleet. I would think any tractor or farm supply store would have it.

    ih 500

    You should be able to get clutch discs and brake bands from General Gear at tractorparts.com or (800)531-9021. I had to replace two fiber discs and they were $21 each and they arrived in two days. One of the guys on this site had trouble with his reverser (no reverse). It was a linkage adjustment problem. The 500 is a great little machine.

    2424 industrial

    The IH 2424 uses the same engine as the 500 dozer. The plug in the third photo looks to be the drain plug. The plug next to the shifting lever should be the fill plug, which is similar to the location of the fill plug on my 500. There should be is full plug or a plug with a dipstick attached(which the 500 has). I can't see anything in the first photo. On the 500 one of the bolts on the top of the transmission is larger and taller than the rest has a dipstick attached. I don't know if I've helped any.
