  1. I will find the bulletin on the fender hole and step>
  2. I have the plugs in the shop, i can look tomorrow. I believe it a 17-s cap plug.
  3. Usually those seals leak from getting old and hard and make sure the seals do not spin in the housing.
  4. I’ll see if I can find the spec., yes I would be concerned about piston protrusion.
  5. To add to this I believe when fenders were ordered on a 66 series, you got both steps. I can’t remember without looking if 56 series came both steps or the right step was still an option.
  6. To add to your picture, those are later 66 series fender mounts on your double light fenders.
  7. There is a service bulletin when the right side step became an option. You may find an early 06 or 656 that has a hand hold in the right fender because you could have ordered the right step attachment for these early tractors. In the attachment there was a pattern to cut a right hole in the fender. After the right step became an option, all fenders had a right hand hold no matter if the right step was ordered as an option or not. And the custom did not have a right step or grab handle.
  8. Sounds right, I would have to find the info. There was around 750 made of the 756 customs.
  9. If you want send me a phone number I can send you a picture of the weights. I don’t know how to put pics. On here.
  10. I can’t say if you can do a German without removing the bolster. I remove it, gives me more room to work . Case Ih or there is an aftermarket kit that includes the seal, o ring, and the wear collar.
  11. The Pto delete and what I call a western drawbar is not unusual in the dakotas and Canada. Even thru the 88 series I see pto delete and western style draw bars.
  12. If you used an Ag parts spring kit, it will be too high. The spring they send is always too long. You will have to trim the spring or use your old one.
  13. I really haven't found an answer to the AA on the 1256. according to the parts book the single speed 1000 is the only option from the factory. so it is confusing why some 1256's have AA and others don't.
