  1. link to archived topic Ok so my old topic was archived. I figured I would start another to show my latest task. A 263 punched out to 291cid. So this is where I am at at this point tractor is split. Awaiting on parts from machine shop. Short block is assembled. This is not your normal 291, it has no Reliance parts. It has custom built pistons with modern .062, .062 and 3mm oil rings. NOS crank and rod bearings. Compression is right at 9:1, I have thermo coatings on the chambers, piston tops and exhaust ports. It has extreme duty valve in the head (Stainless) with good quality seats and broze valve stem bushings. Cam is a Vogul regrind.
  2. I have a 2005 4410 sprayer with just over 5k hours. Previous owner said one hydrostatic pump has been replaced (not sure which one). Today I started noticing some wonky things, I'll list them in the order I noticed them in. Also the dealer is coming out Monday to diagnose the problem. I figured I'd post it on here and see if any had any thoughts, or if nothing else I'll post what we figure out to help someone else out. (this all started happening when I was nearing the end of my load, so the sprayer was hot) #1 I noticed the chemical pump stopping and starting again when stopping and starting driving. (mph, not rpm) #2 Then I noticed the sprayer being pretty sluggish when using the hydrostatic lever. I was working around poles so I was doing a lot of starting and stopping. It felt kinda like I was spinning out, but I wasn't. And with the speed pot at it's minimum, and the lever at it's maximum, where I used to get 9mph (if I remember right) now I was only getting 4-8mph. (Sometimes 4 sometimes 6 ext,) #3 I switched fields and noticed I was only getting 26mph, and slowly work it's way up to 29. Where before it was 32 bang on everytime. #4 With the engine idling, the ladder won't quite raise all the way. But as soon as you rev the engine it'll come right up. Which speaking of the ladder, the ladder does not fail the "real" ladder test. (Pot speed 100%, rolling at 5mph, go full speed with the hydrostat lever, the ladder doesn't move at all.) The sprayer on the other hand takes an eternity to reach full speed. (or 29mph) I did notice however, when I was rinsing the tank. That when I do the ladder test with chemical pump on, the pump pressure will drop down to 15 or 20psi. Unable to stay where I put it. We used a infrared thermometer on what I think was the case drain on the wheel motors. The dealer said if the swash plate is messed up it'll bypass a lot more fluid. They were all within 10°(F) though. We're kind of suspecting the left side charge pump. Because from following lines it looks like that's what runs the chemical pump and maybe the ladder? Couldn't quite tell though. But honestly nothing quite makes sense to me.
  3. I’m having trouble with this tractor, the 3pt hitch will move up and down at high revs only but won’t lift 2 pounds.. power steering works at idle. On the control valve the “fast&slow” spool it’s free turning like it’s not connected to anything but the knob pushes out with the tractor running seeming like there’s fluid pressure, I’m not sure how it works I’m stumped any help would be great! Thanks
  4. Ok so i started a thread with more background info, and the research i did on the harmonic damper, and you can find that here. But as i continue on the tractor ill share it here.. this is what it looked like when i started using it. And it was sitting for about 2years.
  5. The left hand side of the draft sensing shaft is leaking on my 886. Can this o-ring be replaced from the outside or do I need to drain the rear frame and remove the PTO to replace it from the inside?
  6. I have a new IH U-123 Power Unit with Pulley Assembly that was used as a teaching aid in an ag engineering lab its whole life. It was used to teach the basics of valve adjustment, timing, etc. It has always been under roof. I am to the age that I am ready to down-size my lab equipment including this IH engine. I hope to find a large IH collector that would like to add it to his/her collection. I do not know the value of this one-of-a-kind engine assembly. I also have the original Operator's Manual and serial number information if someone is interested. I can be contacted at 830-644-2555 (landline, no texts) or send an email to GFC4320@hotmail.com
  7. Hello, I'm having some problems with a 1984 UK ih 885xl. The problem is with the 3pt lift. Basically it is slow to lift. Raise the lever and it could take 10/20 seconds or more before it will lift up. Revving up the engine helps sometimes but not always. It doesn't matter whether there is a load or not. An other thing is, it drops really quick and violently. The two things may be linked. Once the lift has gone up and you drop down the lever, the lift just drops (not the full way to the ground, to the position you have the lever at) there is no resistance to the drop. Seems more or less free fall to me. An other thing that may be related is if look at the lever linkages under the tractor there is one rod that is not connected to anything. I've tried to take pictures of it. The rod is leaning on the axle. We have had the hydraulic filter and fuild changed and a mesh part that was in where the filter us changed to because it had split. It a new tractor to us. Only on the farm a few months. Apart from the lift problem is a great little tractor. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  8. I have a 1962 IH 404 that I'm having some issues with. I've noticed that when the tractor first starts and until it runs for about 30 minutes or so, the pto shaft continues to spin even though it is disengaged. If I grab the pto shaft, it's not engaged and will stop spinning. If I engage the pto, it works correctly. Now, after the tractor runs for awhile and gets warm, this problem goes away. I'm wondering if this is an adjustment issue and if so, what needs to be adjusted? Since this tractor doesn't have live pto, I feel like this is connected to other problem I have which is that until the tractor gets hot after working for awhile, it's always grinding gears. I mean I can depress the clutch and wait 10 seconds for spin down and it will still grind going into any gear from a dead stop. If I feather the shift lever towards the gear I want, I can feel the gears still turning and then start to slow down with the pressure I'm applying from the shifter. If the tractor gets good and hot, this goes away and I can shift without issue. Since I have noticed that both the gear grinding and pto issues seem to go away when the tractor gets warm, I'm trying to figure out if there's a clutch issue or what. I just purchased this tractor and am new to tractor mechanics so I need some advice on what to adjust.
  9. Hello everyone. I'm new here and this is my first post. Im not sure if this belongs here but I got a killer deal on this IH #2 cart this weekend. The pictures are when I got it home. Does anyone know anything about these. I. Done a small bit of research and it seems like the early ones dont have a data tag. Also if anyone knows if these tires are original that be awesome. Thanks guys and gals.
  10. Ran across some older IH OEM U.S. Army K-7 truck manuals for 1 ton and 2 1/2 ton. I have to admit I was looking at some yellow paint track loaders for a smoking deal. In the process I did locate these and other yellow original Manuals and can have them all if I buy the loaders. Wife, loaders, wife, loaders? .... Hum, I'll get back to ya on that one. ?
  11. Looking for info on rd450. has 4bbl intake manifold. Anyone have any experience ditching the old tea kettle governed carb and retrofitting with a newer style carb? And what did you use?
  12. So first off I have never posted anything to a forum ever. So I have no idea if I’m in the right area. I pulled this cab off an old 806 I’m putting a clutch in the owner doesn’t want it. I was going to scrap the cab and I pulled the glass out. The glass that is broken is the right side pane, the rear, and the upper door glass ps. If there’s no interest I’ll take it to the scrap yard by Friday. Email me phil2875g@gmail.com. I’m thinking $200. obo... thanks
  13. Hello everyone - Greetings from Charlotte, NC. Unfortunately, my father passed away recently (he was 58) and I'm left with three Internationals: 1966 806D (pictured), 1967 806D, 1974 1466 These tractors were never show ponies - always work horses on a dairy. He bought the '66 806 before I was born (I'm 29). Because of this, they're all in need of a good amount of work - particularly the 806s, they both need a new clutch. I don't want to sell the tractors - I'd like to keep them and restore as I find time & money. Although I spent the first 20 years of my life milking cows, stacking hay, and cutting silage - I stepped away from that after college and now work in engineering. It's safe to say that these old tractors inspired my fascination with engineering and mechanical stuff. My first goal is to get them all running - some have been sitting for a few years, but were all running when parked. The '66 806 just required a new battery and a shot of ether to fire right up. I suspect the others will be the same. This will take years of work and tons of money, but hopefully it'll be worth it in the end. I'm sure I'll need the help and support of this community. Pictures of the other tractors to come shortly. Thanks, -Chad
  14. Howdy, I'm new here but not new to the Red World! I am currently in the middle of restoring a "L54-A" plow to use with my 1953 Cub. The "Correct Police" may squawk at the "L54-A" identification, but I choose to label it thus since my plow is composed of components from both the Lowboy L-54 and the regular Cub 54-A Grader plow. That said, I have also posted a video of my progress so far on my youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/ourpassthyme I look forward to enjoying this site and getting to know some of the others here. -Tom The direct link to the video can be found here:
