  1. I have an orphan 12 volt coil . New ,don’t remember where it came from to replace coil on motor , motor Coil has open secondary. No information on that coil. I don’t have the manual for a 1000. Like to use it if it will work on the 1000 .
    Measure s 3.3 secondary approx , ohm. 
    what’s a stock ohm,the primary ohm measure ?if anyone that has 

  2. I would suggest this, measure every thing( do not assume ) , flow fuel ( time fuel flow amount in container .) ,timing light-the timing . I find the fastest way to uncover engine faults is using a vacuum guage . Remove the vacuum port from the intake ,install vacuum guage. your vacuum should be 18 to 22 inches of hg and a steady needle . If not then the readings will tell you what isn’t working. 
    Get an I T manual orc shop manual and go thru one system at a time. 
    My tractors are 75 years old and they have issues with everything, from the grill, hood to drawbar. I’ve never found a Farmall crystal ball that works, guessing cost me big bucks .

    Post what your findings are so we can comment .good luck with your project . 


  3. Worked on the Farmall C governor over the weekend  ,got new springs from Steiner. Painted and installed it yesterday . I’ve had worse but I chose to replace anyway ,didn’t cost that much. 

    Brazed up the wear (flats) ,hand dress the radius with dremel and hand fine hand file good as new now , can’t get these . I’ve had a lot worse really

    They’re kinda funny in that they still want you to pay it off though!


    out with the folks and ST checking seeing a Tragically Hip cover band tonight. They’re really good. Fired some head gaskets in the Vmax today, she’s alive and not blowing coolant in your face when you lean on the throttle anymore. BRRRRAAAAPPPPP


    Will that honk on ? Looks like it ?

  6. As usual got myself into a revolting development. I was going to make (replace missing )a governor control rod clip on the Farmall C . This will take the lost motion out of the throttle of lever as I advance to the high idle. This is top of c touch control cylinder block.
    Well the new bolt I thought was goin to fit would not go . So took the tank off and got into the thunder why ? See the photo. 
    I’m thinking that if I just drill a hole into thru  broken bolt I can get some penetration oil in behind and with some heat it will left hand drill and back out. Thunder ! Dull five drills total. What is this bolt make of ? Every time in these old ihc bolts I get into an issue . Happen before .

    I bought a 9/64 carbide drill at the hardware store and carefully drilled it thru . Shot wd 40 back in the ,heat it with the torch . Still could not get a hs Steel drill to drill through . Went to the tool supply bought this set drills the salesman suggested for doing this type of work . 
    I did go through ,but chip the carbide drill when it grabbed ,ugh !

    since the original dill hole was of center noe I can’t get the easy out to grab it to turn it out. 
    Going get a small chisel to break up the treads pieces ,I think. If not going to pull the whole unit out and put on the bed of vertical mill and do it the right way ,  

    my advice is do not ever use a carbide drill with a hand drill it will grab and break off in sticking to the bolt .  It did not happen to me but I was fortunate,this time.
