  1. You can still use the old style block cylinder and new style tie rod end if you are willing to grind new notches in your tie rods.
  2. Check fluids first and make sure it runs before he invest in fresh fluids and filters. Probably be wise to crack oil plug a little before attempting to crank it over to check for coolant in oil. Then the owner know more about what he has. That's pretty much how I'd start. If everything seems good I'd change engine oil when warm.
  3. I had one alternator do that on account of bad brushes. I wonder if 5288 be late enough built that they run 12si alternators? They run a tad bit cooler than a 10si. Both normally simple and reliable alternators.
  4. I 99% sure it isn't any heavier. Own one 656 and four 686 and they seem the same. Also own 544 and rear seems the same except for the brakes are smaller.
  5. I have heard that 4 bar NH56 rakes exist but have never seen one. Could somebody that owns one post a picture.
  6. I think you have to change the drives to sidehill style to make them run on a red. At least we did on our 1680. 540 spline couplers click right on the hex of the combine.
  7. Pretty sure we will be picking and cribbing ear corn later this fall. Do every year we get ripe corn and it still standing decent. Run a Deere 300 with 243 head.
  8. How full did you have it before you started?
  9. Yes four straight flat stock type bars on rotor in grate section. At least that is it on our standard rotor 1680.
  10. I thought they had a gold 1026 listed on today's multiple location auction? I looked through the listing about a week ago.
  11. I believe alot of parts for that specific kohler are no longer available.
  12. You should wait for the rings. Check that rubber elbow between turbo and air cleaner over real well. They can develop cracks. I think they may be no longer available.
  13. Yes we installed one on our farmall 544.
  14. A D466 in a 3688 should be pretty easily done. I think 3488s run a d466. A dt466 from combine be a little trickier I imagine cooling and exhaust wise. Didn't some combines run a dti466? Would that complicate things further?
