  1. We have not seen a second failure in any of the red tractors that we installed the updated drum it. I can't sat that about the green ones though. I discussed this problem with a transmission engineer from JD and while they are aware of the problem, their contention is that it is an operator problem and not a design problem.
  2. Is the tractor used on any sort of large honey wagon or grain wagon/cart? If used in the hills and the operator allows the push to overspeed the engine/transmission they will fry the reverse clutch pack. Case IH has a revised clutch drum that bleeds the oil off behind the clutch piston and prevents what is referred to as "centrifugal engagement". We are in a somewhat hilly area of western Iowa and we see this problem in both the Red and green powershift tractors. A poster here by the name of Farmall advised me about the replacement reverse drum.
  3. Here is a copy and paste of a post I made a number of years ago that may give you some help on getting this job done correctly the first time. I have learned the hard way after having a 407 score several pistons in the first few hours (the very first time it was put under load) after an inflame rebuild that the only way to rebuild these engines (361 & 407) is to take them down to the bare block, have the block bored for oversized OD liners (My supplier offers them in .002,.005 & .010 OD for 361 & 407 engines and I use the .010) and after the liners are installed have th

  6. Our camping group of 4 to 6 couples are looking for a place to ride UTV's this summer within a days drive from West Central Iowa. We are all in our mid 60's give or take a few years and mostly have Ranger type UTV's, so we are looking for scenic trails and not real difficult terrain. We are thinking maybe the Black Hills area of South Dakota, or the Cheyenne area of Wyoming, but are open to all suggestions.. We would like to rent lodging (AirBNB or VRBO???) large enough for us all to stay in one unit if possible, but we can split up if need be. If a place had beginner level river kayakin
  7. I am a Westendorf dealer and I can assure you that they offer many different mounting kits for the different tractors. Depending what tractor the mounts were on, and what tractor you switching it to, it is sometimes possible to make them work without too much trouble. But in some cases the mounts can be a lot different. Knowing what model tractor the mounts were on and what tractor you want to put them on would help. I am in western Iowa about 75 miles from where they are made and there are a lot of WL42's around here and sometimes you can find the mounts you need used. Be awar
  8. I've had this OTC branded one for probably close to 40 years. I don't remember for sure where I bought it, but it most likely came from an implement dealer that sold out in the 80's when the implement business was pretty tough. I started my business in 1976 and added a lot of shop equipment in the early 80's Replaced the cog belt a few years ago. These things also have a blow out safety plug in case you exceed the working pressure of the tester.......I am not sure what we did, but I know we blew it out at least once. The manual says it will blow if you exceed the pressure gauge max by 200
  9. Looks like a Gates PC707. Great hose machine and it will crimp the new style Gates one piece global ends. I have had one for probably close to 40 years (or more) and I make hoses almost every day. I did have to buy updated dies when I changed over to the new global ends, but that has been a long time ago.

  11. I don't see how you can JUST change the dash supports........if you move the dash up you are going to need different shifter vertical shafts, steering lines and other linkage and then the radiator support is going need changed or raised up too.
  12. I thought the fuel tank and steering column support was taller on the 8X6 series. Basically that the the hood/sheet metal sat higher. What are the few parts you are referring to?
  13. I may be wrong, but I am thinking a D358 is too tall to go into a 706/756.

  15. Gearclash, My helper Nate has been working on it and he has went over all of the PTO related wiring and he is generally pretty through. SDMan, We did have the controller software updated a year or so ago, that did not seem to change the problem. One thing I have not mentioned is this time the tractor came in on a trailer as it would not move because it would not engage the F/R shuttle clutch. A new reverse solenoid coil repaired that problem. I don't think that should of had a bearing on the PTO problem as the PTO problem has been cropping up for 3 years or so. The customer
