  1. I also did this to one of dads 12's. Although I put the s252sxe with I think a divided .83 housing on it. Darn thing sounds awesome when its lugging but it whistles so much that its can get obnoxious after 2-3hrs working dirt. Makes 20ish lbs of boost with mostly stock pump other than the external smoke screw turned a bit. I just made a 1" divided spacer to make everything line up and built my own exhaust elbow up and out the original hole in the hood.
  2. Lol yeah your not wrong there! I sure do appreciate the time it took for you to post! I’m of German decent but I don’t know any German. Thank you!
  3. Thank you! I’ve got a jensales German engine manual but I haven’t combed through it just yet. I wanted to confirm what we thought was the issue. We were correct, the bottom of the sleeve is cracked and it’s leaking pretty good.
  4. Evening all, I’ve got a 756 with a 310 German that has a antifreeze/coolant leak that is coming from around the number 1 injector area(will confirm exactly where tomorrow). Was curious if anyone here has ran into this issue? Has anyone changed injector sleeve/cups on a German? What tools are needed to take out and reinstall the sleeve/cup? Can the injector sleeve/cup be installed with the head in place?
  5. We had the same thing happen to our 706 with a German. Took the head off thinking it was the valves and the machine shop didn’t find anything wrong with the head. It turned out to be bad injectors, tips mainly. Had the diesel shop put new tips in and reset the pressures and it fixed the popping out of the exhaust. Also to note, it only did it after it was warm or at operating temp and after a hard load was just placed on it. So if it was going up a hill and we lugged it hard it made the noise, once it got to the top of the hill on a substantially lesser load and let the tractor calm down and cool down it went away until we would put it under another load. Hope that helps.
  6. I’ve got one but I repowered it with a 414 out of a 966. Still got the engine and everything to put it back the way it was other than the sheet metal looking like crap.
  7. Was wanting to rebuild the engine this year but the way things are going I don’t want to spend the money on something that ain’t broken, yet. I can use that money for cost of life things. Once it goes in for a rebuild I’ll do fire rings but for now I’m looking at what can be done easily/less pricy way to the possibility of blowing a head gasket……I don’t even know if it will blow the head gasket…..does anyone have experience at when a head gasket on a 400 series blow? I was told by one guy 35ish and another 50-60 lbs of boost would blow the head gasket. I was told maybe running a copper head gasket. Have you been around a copper head gasket? How do they work?
  8. With those, would those need cuts in the sleeves or head? Correct, I definitely agree with running it rich. Did you 40 degrees on a model 100 or inline? Not really, I’m trying to keep this tractor farmable lol and it’s damn close to not being able to farm with. I’ve got other things to do before I’m totally out of things to do to keep up. Thanks Also, I know boost is essentially a measurement of restriction, but what determines how high or low the boost gets? Is it ultimately the amount of air the turbo can flow? Is it cam lift and duration? The old turbo is listed to flow 65 lbs/min vs the new with 76 lbs/min…..it can explain higher boost. I’ve heard and seen some get much higher boost levels out of the same turbo I had, but mine with a smaller and bigger housing would slap 40 pretty easily but no more no less. Had a 3lm-466 years ago and it was the same way. Not looking for more boost just trying to understand what determines different numbers…..and maybe I answered my own questions…..some have more restrictions in they’re setups.
  9. That’s exactly what I did with the smaller turbo, and it’s smaller on the exhaust and intake side but yes, it made it laggier than the bigger turbo I’m testing. 1600+ as that’s as far as the gauge goes. I have not tried more timing, it’s 2 degrees past stock as is, it’s at 20*. Fuel is all the way, I tried that too. I’m just curious of how much can the head gasket take. Is there a trick or something that can be done to “leak” some boost off to regulate boost once it gets too high? I told my dad last night I can now de-fuel and use that as my regulator for the boost and not run it so hard. It’s definitely getting more air on the low end of the rpms by what it would do with old turbo and what it does with the new one. Idk, I think I helped it breath and run more free but I wasn’t expecting the boost levels that I’m getting…..see what happens I guess, might have to get a copper head gasket or put head studs in.
  10. Hello guys, playing around like usual, testing out new ideas and performance upgrades for next year for my IH 766 w/ dt414. How much boost will a dt414 handle before a head gasket failure occurs? It's been running 40-42psi boost on the old turbo and I've been testing the drive psi and its been plenty high, 50's-60's psi so I've ran bigger housings and got it improved some but the turbo seems maxed out because the egts get HOT with nothing changing the boost numbers. With how its been reacting with that turbo I'm trying a bigger one out of curiosity to see what it'll do and if it will help the egts, and I've been pleasantly surprised of how its been reacting, getting great results with it but I'm not sure how I think about the results. On flat ground, no load in road gear boost got to 38 and 39.5 exhaust psi, going up a fairly steep incline in the road, it hit around 55psi boost with 54-55psi exhaust which is where I want to be. Thanks
  11. Yeah it is as I don’t have most of those details. What I can answer is that I did have the head off and this engine has one piston cooler per cylinder and on number one cylinder, it has hatch marks on half of the bore and the other half has no hatch marks. I’d be curious to see if the side that has hatch marks has the oil splash on it and that’s why it’s got them compared to the other. I also do some tractor pulling with it also.
  12. I have another question for the community here. After taking measurements of the cam, I have some lobes that are worn way below minimum spec on a d414. Would it be stupid to just replace the cam and lifters on an engine with 8-9k hrs?
