  1. Fordson F Tractor project

    Going to install the cam shaft. I thought the procedure was put number one up TDC . But I was told it was not true . To line up cam gear and crank gear marks. I was turning the crankshaft and the piston to work in more oil and and assembly lube ,since it was about three. Weeks ! . We put the one piston up and the timing mark on crank was TDC or up. So the timing marks must match center Line of crank and cam shafts. Well ,I will take a picture of it when I get it in. Sure glad I got some advice from Fordson guys. Ive learned a lot with this project! Ask before I do anything !
  2. Nice day and I wanted to get some painting done . Got the engine home from the machine shop ,took me two years , I told them to work on it when they had opening. Well that's not very often ,but I got home now and doing some painting .

  5. Meet Boomer ! The Holstein dog

    We got Boomer (a rescue) about three weeks ago. I call him a Holstien cause I don't know what he is , so he to me is more Holstien looking than dog. Anyway boomer is enrolled in puppy classes, which he is about the youngest. his feet I think are web , and walks around with his tail up with his nose to the ground. All in all we like him . Where the Farmall collar came from nobody knows ! but he deserves it and we want him to where it proudly ! πŸ‘πŸΏπŸ‘€πŸ€“πŸ© here he is
  6. Meet Boomer ! The Holstein dog

    The deal was that the grandson (7) was suppose to take care of him , well he lost interest in the agreement , so mom said to him that he was not keeping up with the agreement and put him on the adoption page. So tough lesion need to be taught, he is only seven but he need to take responsibility for his decisions ? Thats why !
  7. Fordson F Tractor project

    Should have measured the bore of freeze plugs . The Fordson , some with Remanufactured engines have a larger freeze plug. The orginal have 1 3/16 Welch plugs , this engine has 1 1/4 Welch plugs ? What you don't measure you don't control ! They say ! So I called them and they are sending out the bigger ones . I mention so if you do one you have a heads up to help so ! I thought I did something wrong , β—οΈπŸ‘€πŸ€“ they looked thight but something told me it was not right . I put a magnet on them . They all came out . Ugh ! πŸ‘ŽπŸΏπŸ‘€πŸ€“ moral of Fordson engines what you think is right isn't , verify everything !
  8. Meet Boomer ! The Holstein dog

    Boomer went to a new home this weekend ! Wish him the best life a dog can have. Sad to see him go but that's life! I here he has been matched with a great family. Ha walked like he owned the place . Was not afraid of them, I think puppy class reall helped him.
  9. Fordson F Tractor project

    No I did not , I can't get the motor to turn over ? As I got to number two it was harder ,put number one in it turn hard. And stopped at at 23 and three up. So I have not moved it from that spot, going to make a spanner wrench for the crank. UndI really don't want to pull it to start it ,and in need to I also noticed the soft plugs were bad . I changed the 1 3/16 plugs . I hit them with ball peen , πŸ‘ŽπŸΏπŸ‘€πŸ€“they all came out with a magnet πŸ‘ŽπŸΏ i got to make some calls to Fordson house .to see what I did wrongs , another bcause I got to adjust the valves .

  11. My unpopular opinion.

    One of the things that I've exiperence installing points on kohler S is to run a business card across the contacted to clean them as thet reccommend . Also I have had oxidation on the hm80 Tecumseh this year. First for me but it is a failure of points got to expect it I Have heard the new condensors offshore one will not ground properly in IH cause smaller od will clamp. I say the solid state has many advantages
  12. oil filter question

    You can cut one open and show me! Like to see it. I have run every filter ther is in our parts store that fits my truck , I have have used stp and driven from my home in Ohio to Colorado hunting in Rockies at 8500 feet above sea level and put 300,000 miles on the 4.6 using them all . I change oil every quarter . Qeustion I have about the failures you say happen is how old were the filters ? How many miles on them ? What additives were added to oils ? This is rare occurrence like to know why ?
  13. Fordson F Tractor project

    The oil is splash from the rods to the camshaft from crankcase . The valves stem are lubricated from vapors all splashing action filling block with oil vapors or mist.Thats the best i can explain it. Hope that helps if not , I can ask or find a better explanation from other Fordson experts that I call Fromm time to time to get advice. πŸšœπŸ‘πŸΏπŸ‘€πŸ€“ note the camshaft and lifters are not installed in the photos , awaiting new lifters , the new design solid lifter has a 5/16 hole in it to allow the cam rotating to pump or wipe oil up the lifter to lube lifter . I'll post a photo to show what I'm trying to say . also notice flywheel has u magnets as the flywheel rotates it is inside crankcase and that also slashs oil to the front of engine to lube crank and cam gears.

  15. oil filter question

    I can't speak for wix , I think that all the mfg. sell very good products, any failures I have heard about were installation errors , such as not checking if the oring came off with the old filter. Installed filter with ring attached to block which resulted in engine seized . i personal only seen one recall , that was a motorcycle filter and only one oil filter with a pin hole leak at hex ,spot weld for hex wrench head that's it 40 years

  18. Chevy Avalanche

    My coworker bought that same vehicle new , he left the lot went to go from the first traffic light and it would not move . Dealer had it a month ,they could not get a transmission, so they took one out of one on the lot . No problem after that . i sell parts , my best customers are GM owners . 6 out 10 are GM your vehicle the avalanche , brakes ,rotors and calipers wheel bearings fuel pump get prices now from your parts store you will be working on the above major engine code is fuel vapor canister solenoid valve and evap sensors , engine misfire , camshaft sensor ,temperature sensor there a sensor on that engine escape me now ,major engine tear down to get to , that what. Remember if you want I look more data
  19. My unpopular opinion.

    I still run points on the C's , magnetos and a distributor. So I don't have any experience with the solid state . I see hot spark and data Sheetz on pertronix, and it is very beneficial to have a coil triggered to release maximize secondary voltage to plugs . That's provided all the other components of the ignition system is optimum. Be sure you get the right coil with the right resistance ,that they sell or recommend cause it will fail. Good luck , I think I would try one on a pulling tractor for sure from looking at data. I use a dwell meters on other points before and it makes a huge difference.
