  1. Beings you Have gone this far a new pump and spring kit for mcv not a bad idea because of what previous operator told you
  2. I used that timken 340495 seal last summer. I put jb weld around it and installed it then prick punched the casting around the seal and it has not leaked since. Good luck, worked for me.
  3. Same here. Lots of cardinals and woodpeckers
  4. Looks like your dog likes the 1486๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  5. Confucius say, man who stand on toilet high on pot.๐Ÿ˜•
  6. The grill alone on the scrap tractor is worth $500. Looks to be in good shape. Easily worth $300 a piece
  7. Nice find. Used to have a 544 gear drive utility on the farm. Always liked that little tractor. Good luck with restoration๐Ÿ˜€
  8. Remove the battery at the bottom of steering column then remove the plate that the battery sits on. You will see all the !inkage. Spray the cross shaft above the battery liberally with penetrating oil. Remove the long link to see what moves and what doesn't. Keep spraying everything, and try to keep moving all links. May take a few days. Good luck
  9. Unhook linkage where it goes into the tranny and shift it by hand. If you can shift low to high then you got to figure out where it is froze up in the linkage. About the carb---- make sure the governor is adjusted to the carburetor correct. Unhook the governor rod to the carburetor and move the throttle handle to full throttle and hold the carburetor butterfly to full throttle and adjust the rod so the connecting pin will install freely with no binding. Good luck
  10. I think that quilt is on a wall at Farmall Land USA in Iowa. Sure are some good quilt makers out there.
  11. Wow!!! Those rear tires don't look like the standard 15.5/38s on 656. That's what we have on ours. Are they 18.4.34s. Look to wide for 16.9/38s. Looks good๐Ÿ˜Š
  12. Nice job, that thing should move a lot of snow. If you haven't done it yet, I would change the rear end fluid (80/90). I have seen them freeze the bullgears in with so much water in the oil because nobody ever changes the oil. Have had to drag them into the heated shop and let them warm-up to get them to drain. Good luck with er
  13. Open just perfect for us. The 986 and 5088 open just like my truck and car. Hinges to the front of door.. Not saying the rear hinge door is bad, I do like it but the 86 & 88 series was not designed that way and it is what it is. Don't see it as an issue at all
  14. That is awesome. bet the smile on your face was just as big. That would make 3 happy boys. Congrats๐Ÿ˜€
