  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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. I have heard that 4 bar NH56 rakes exist but have never seen one. Could somebody that owns one post a picture.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. How full did you have it before you started?
  23. Yes four straight flat stock type bars on rotor in grate section. At least that is it on our standard rotor 1680.
  24. I thought they had a gold 1026 listed on today's multiple location auction? I looked through the listing about a week ago.
