    5288 Electrical POwer Loss

    cab solenoid is behind the cover between the pedals where the fuses are. but I agree with 5488duke,sounds like a bad connection. start right at the source,the batteries,test, clean all conections including the grounds on the frame

    Hydro84 Transmission Clicking / Ticking noise

    sounds like a tooth missing on the gear for low range. have you checked the filter for any pieces of metal?

    IH, July 4th and 1976

    that was the year dad bought his first new tractor...….. a black stripe 966, got it that spring and had a yearround cab installed on it the following year. if we still had that tractor the cab would be gone and back to an open station.

    666 gas

    cant figure out what the carb is for a kit. took it to stieners tractor parts and they couldn't find any gaskets to match up. customer is buying a new carb. he bought the tractor with it this way and hasn,t run right since he got it. also getting new manifold. his is leaking exhaust and manifold surface is burnt bad.

    666 gas

    yes and has new points cond plugs wires cap rotor. compression is good, manifold gasket is not sucking air. good gas flow and new gas

    is the correct carb. for this tractor have a electric solenoid shutoff. this engine idles fine but misses bad when under load. thinking someone put a different carb. on it. has a zenith on it with cast upper half and aluminum lower half and no electric shutoff. help please...………. no numbers on it anywhere

    My Winter Project- 5488 Rebuild

    sweeeet…….. you should be proud. did some work on a 5288 awhile ago with only 3800 hours and I thought that was low hours. that is very low hours for your tractor. good luck with her,should get many years out of her

    What she don't know won't hurt her.

    ya, its all in their head. we had a cookout a few years ago and I had venison steaks on the grill and a few beef hamburgs. after we were done eating had lots of complements about how good the steak was. then I revealed that it was venison and one of the women began crying that she hated venison but was one of the guests that said how good it was. she actually made herself go out back and throwup. I remind her every once in a while how she said it was so good but she tells me she will never eat meat at my place again. some women??????????
