  1. I think they leave the factory as a closed system. Bought a 36 on an auction 14 years ago and it was converted to open center. I wish it was original closed center system. That conversion works but is kinda a squirrely mess.
  2. I feel the valves on engine should be both working and both shut off during warmer months. Why have coolant pressure on them long runs of heater hose all summer while it not needed. Truck outfits usually carry them valves alot cheaper than implement dealer.
  3. That tube goes to Ac temp dial switch. No need to pump down, vacuum, and recharge if that the culprit. If wire not in place it should still blow cold air till probably ice up. If it busted i don't think it would blow cold air. If you feel you think it broke you could jump that switch and see if you get cold air.
  4. Investigate air filter/intake system for rodent nests to at least rule that out.
  5. Bigger clutch will push alot harder. Is the 766 turboed? If not I'd stay with 12" .
  6. There is usually a couple different holes in drawbar for front pin to adjust the length. Are you sure it not slid ahead all the way?
  7. I think there a mennonite radiator outfit near greenwood that does radiators. They might be worth giving a call and tell them what you got. I think it called Popple River Repair.
  8. Thank you for the update.
  9. Cornhead grease is better than the 90 weight that leaks out so quickly. Many guys replaced seals and bushings trying to keep it holding 90 to no avail.
  10. Hixwood sold out to a English outfit about a year ago. All them trailers belonged to trucking outfit out of Thorp. I think new owners are doing their own trucking.
  11. Welcome to forum. Can you get some pics of engine and pump? It would help alot .
  12. Lol I speculating it originally an article from farm show magazine all doctored up.. Just speculation. Some farm show testimonials are quite amusing.
  13. Got a couple German 686 here with stanley ovals on them one is ok, one is a rattle trap. The other two German 686 have original ih Canada oval mufflers which I think are best but one of those are getting pretty rough. I think 756/826 diesel ones work just fine and will probably try a round one when that one finally deteriorates. Not at all familiar with this keba product you mention but it wouldn't take much to impress me over stanley.
  14. Guy owned concrete pouring business. I pretty sure he still does but I think he downsized. Been buying many red tractors since he was a teenager. I'm sure he has alot more than what was listed. I about 4 miles from his auction site.
  15. 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.
