  1. What did this 466 come out of?

    The extra plug is about an inch below the bolt rail. I'm not sure what it would be for, because it is 3/8npt which seems too small to drain anything like a turbo. It is definitely a factory installed fitting. Also, I thought the 88 series tractors had a different rear plate. This rear plate is like one from a 1066.

  3. What did this 466 come out of?

    Hi everyone, I have a DT466 that I am fixing to put in a 1066. I have been racking my brain to figure out what it might have came out of when it was new. It is was painted black when it was new. The rear cover is the same as the 1066 tractor rear cover, but It never was bolted to tractor frame rails. There was that same factory black paint on the machined surfaces for frame rails to bolt to. However, there were bolts in the holes because you can see where they got tightened into the cast iron. It has a tractor style oil pan with an offset drain plug. This oil pan also has an extra 3/8 plug by the rail on the right hand side. When I bought it, there was no front cover. The engine SN begins with 467 so that kind of puts a date on it. I am thinking it came out of some kind of a 2+2, but I,m not sure how the rear cover and frame is set up on them. What did it come out of?
  4. International 966 rebuild - high oil pressure

    A lot of people have been having issues with the quality of reliance parts. I have ordered multiple 400 series kits from them. What I have found is that the gaskets are usually pretty good. Sleeves and bearings are usually ok too. The pistons are where I have ran into trouble, usually with bad finishing on the pin holes or ring grooves. For me, it has only been things like one piston out of the six is in bad shape. I ordered all this online from Howard enterprises. The good news is that when I have issues, I call them and they have no problem sending me a replacement piston, sleeve, or whatever was bad. I know receiving bad parts is not fun, but when the company has good customer service, it makes you feel a little better. But, the majority of parts I have installed from reliance have given zero issues. Nice rebuild pictures, by the way!
  5. 1486 oil filters?

    If they are from a dealer they should both be Fleetguard LF3316.
  6. "Farm Stock" pulling

    When I first started pulling my 1066, I had a custom drawbar that went in place of the stock one with a hooking eye welded on top of the actual drawbar. There is not an easy way to get to 20" with the stock hanger setup without making one, especially with 34 inch rubber I'd guess. Mine had 20.8-38 rubber and still wasn't quite at 20" with my stock modified drawbar and it was up as much as it could go. You're probably about right with 12psi in your 34's. I run my 20.8's anywhere from 16-18psi. The best way to gauge this is to look at the holes you dig as you pull off the track to see if they are concave or convex. Also my thoughts on gearing for more "stock" pulling is that speed is not always the best answer. Depending on how the track is, etc. spinning out in a lower gear can usually get you farther than powering out in a high gear. I suppose this could be said for almost all classes, but it seems the more power they have, the more forgiving the gear choice is. Good luck!

    Are you sure it is not the hammering noise that those injection pumps can make? I wonder what noise a slightly loose idler gear bolt would make. That could make quite a ruckus but I wouldn't think it would just be at idle. An injector misfiring or injector issue sometimes can be heard as a popping noise out the exhaust (especially noticeable with a straight pipe). A valve issue usually has a hissing noise when starting the tractor. After checking everything easy with no improvement, I would be looking at the wrist pin bushings or connecting rod bearings. You could crack the oil drain plug to look for shiny metal flakes in the oil just for a quick check. I don't know for sure but those are my thoughts! Good Luck!
  8. S2e vs 3lm466

    You'd be just fine with either turbo. S2E will whistle more if that makes a difference to you. I doubt you would notice much of a difference in performance between the two at your desired HP level.
  9. Square head bolts

    About the best deal I've found is through Case IH. They are about $7 per bolt, but that's not too bad considering they are fine thread and square head. 7x24= $168 (for 38 inch hubs). Then you can get nuts and lock washers from McMaster Carr for a good price.
  10. Bringing back to 'life'

    The only thing I'd see as a problem is if the fuel has gummed up. Seems to be a real problem with today's bio fuels when they sit. Good luck

  12. IH 966 tire choices

    If you want to get serious with the pulling then do not buy new tires. A set of radial all traction Firestones at about 20% or less tread is what I'd try to find. I wouldn't be afraid of a good set of BF Goodrich Powersaver radials either. I have both and honestly, I like the BFG's for pulling, but the Firestones are pretty good too. If your tractor has 34 inch centers you will either need a set of step up rims or wedges. Personally, I would look for a set of 38" wedge lock hubs before going with step up rims.
  13. 756 Jumpin' Gear

    They don't typically have issues with popping out of gear as long as the detents in the shifting mechanisms are functional. The shifters should have a firm snap when they are put into gear. Even with some wear, they usually don't have too many issues. Just make sure you have decent enough brakes just in case.

    There is only one correct answer and that answer is 50.
  15. Dt466 crisis, please read

    If there doesn't appear to be much oil getting up to the valve train, I would be looking at the head gasket. Oil comes up from the rear cam bearing, then goes through the head gasket. There were some changes throughout the years with how oil got through the head gasket area. Older engines had a passage through the block itself. Later engines used a gasket with a slot to get the oil where it belongs. I have also heard of a gasket partially blocking this passage. However, if you put an old style gasket on a new style engine, the valve train will not get any oil.
