  1. If you can read the tag on the trans the first set of numbers is the rated torque for the trans.
  2. Do you have to add soil back to your fields every so often? Seems like after harvesting the plants a depression would form where your rows used to be. Thanks for sharing the pictures of your operation.
  3. That would be a nice cost savings to submit.
  4. Welcome to the forum looks like a fun project! Is the KW a project too?
  5. Sweet find! Good thing the scrapper rats didn't get to it.
  6. I like the tuneable exhaust pipe. Looks like a fun project keep the pictures and updates coming
  7. One thing I've noticed about Case tractors is they grow on you. I bought a 1030 a couple of years ago as a short term tractor and was going to sell or trade towards a 1066 or similar. Well the Case is still here its a little clumsy but its dependable and cheap to operate.
  8. Another thing to check is to make sure there is no air intrusion into the fuel system. Make sure air is bled from injection pump and lines and if any part of the system is under suction ie from from fuel tank to injector pump.
  9. Is everything timed properly? Did you do the overhaul?
  10. One of these days I would like to add a 9 or 1086 to my collection but first is getting my 856 done.
  11. Are you going to keep the project 986 that your nicer 9 replaced?
  12. Chroming or thermal spray welding would have significantly less heat affected(virtually none) area than mig welding and turning in a lathe.
  13. If the axles are worn where the bearing race rides and is out of spec I would look at getting spray welded (what is done to crankshafts) and ground or look into getting that area hard chromed. Here is link to a company that does shaft repair I'm sure there are others out there. http://hausnerinc.com/industrial-hard-chrome-plating-services/hic/
