    Which weights??

    Calcium is a last resort or anything fluid in the tires for that reason takes more power to turn the wheel with fluid than cast weight harder to fix punctures not the mention rim rot Our tire dealer doesn't even offer fluid anymore no demand for it here its all cast weight now all my tractors don't have fluid and if I aquire one that does i have to removed and new tubes installed

    For what type of machine?

    K&W spray Copper-Coat. Asking the experts.

    I have used that product also on several types of engines Mostly on Chevy V-8's that used the thin metal head gaskets and small engines I wouldn't be afraid of using it on a gas tractor at all ,On large modern Diesels I install the gasket dry to prevent excessive gasket shift since they require higher headbolt torque but it is great stuff

    IH at Allora annual vintage shows, Queensland

    Some strange looking variations of tractors compared to the US tractors of that vintage even the model numbers look odd not sure why they did this there and seeing right hand steering on vehicles also something that would take me getting use too but cool pics

    DT414 vs DT436

    I always got a chuckle out of guys turning up HP or putting bigger engines in tractors and then hearing about rear-end troubles axle bearings , pinion bearings differential problems never fails to amaze me

    DT414 vs DT436

    the engines are almost identical however the 436 engine made more sense to increase horsepower with in the 1486 as far as advantages there's none that I can think of the only thing maybe I noticed is the 414 was worse on electralis on the sleeves for some reason
