Changed my coolant filter on my 766 with D360 engine the other day and the top of the filter was black with engine oil. Upon opening radiator cap, I found that was black oil coated too. Its not grey, so I know I didn't run it long luckily but upon talking with my mechanic friend, he said I need a new oil cooler as it must be leaking oil into the coolant. I've checked everywhere I can think of and can not find a new or reman one (735259C91). Best option at this point is to take it off and have it rebuilt by Hy Capacity 4-8 weeks. I did see engine oil coolers for 360 truck engines available...anyone know if one of those would work or if they are (likely) different (part number 1810216C2)? Anyone have one by chance that would fit the tractor? I really don't want a used one as they are all over 40 years old and will be needing repair sooner than later. They do seem more available for the 400 series engines, although they were much more common than the 300 series. Thanks!
Looking for someone who may have a used plow beam for an IH 720 auto reset plow. Bought a new to me plow and in a couple acres I managed to snag a huge rock and broke the beam right off. If anyone has one in driving distance of Central NY or can ship let me know!
So Bill, did you guys get the F-12 running? Did you get to drive it? Hope you had a safe trip home. We enjoyed the show and stopped at Jelly Belly Jelly bean factory, and hit the "Gathering of the Orange" in Indiana. Bought 3 nice IH oil cans at that show, one I've never seen before fire extinguisher recharge canister. Saw another show in Bucyrus Oh which was nice as well and enjoyed talking to some farmers from out there. Only 2 dairy farms in their whole county, all corn and soy and mine is taller than theirs since they planted so late this year due to rain. Saw this and thought of you. http://oneonta.craigslist.org/grd/5628468162.html
Looks like a heck of a deal. I have enough trouble keeping what I've got running though.
hi mark, we just got back from methodist night at the binghamton mets. mets lost....
i was guessing that the F12 would be running by 2pm friday. actually, it was 230pm. i didn't drive it myself, but it was test driven saturday am after it was painted friday night, and then touched up before it was presented to CaseIH on saturday afternoon.
think i'll pass onthe CL 560. like you, i have more than enough to maintain/ rebuild.
you guys must have planned out your trip well, to hit that many shows on the same trip. it sure looked dry thru the I90 corridor in In and Oh.
