756 Farmall (in France)


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

I created a topic few years ago but lot of pics disappeared...

here it is:

 

I  still restore the tractor... I need more time to work on it and few parts were hard to arrive here because I didn't work with the good guy... But now I have almost all parts I need.

I have a question because I had to change the hitch levers support and I lost a part on the hitch distributor... ?

The hitch distributor is leaking so I will change the seal between it and the trans cover. But can I have all distributors by remove the 3 bolts I put in yellow on the pic? There is 2 rods for the hitch and I hope it will stay here

what do you think?

thanks for your replies

Not a lot of replies but perhaps I will find help with this one! :)

The hitch levers support had been broken and welded... sadly it was wrong welded. I had to change it and I found one but mine is with a spinnaker seal and a bushing (brass I guess). The support I have to replace has not that assembly, there is plastic bushing and that's all... (and O-rings)

What do you think? O-ring + plastic bushing are enough to be sure there won't be a leak?

After a long time to search, I found what I was searching

there is some plastic bushing, my dealer can have only 1 ref but it is OK because they are not ruined. I will change 2 of them because it is not expensive (4€ each) and while all is dismantle, it is the opportunity!

But I have a doubt about a part... It is a little bearing, ref #532408R1 (in yellow in my pic)

If someone knows dimensions of it... I don't know if mine is ruined or if it good, and I didn't found any dimensions on the Internet...

Thanks in advance!

 the brakes for USA 52-66' are + - 1/2" .50 us NEW and done when 7/16" .437 us

not sure after '65

there are 8 wearing surfaces to brake pack so .45 or less may not hold good

and <.43 could be none or over center and lock

this says they are < 7/16 NEW

Hello guys

I'm looking for paint for my 756

What is the good (or better) RAL for a 1970's farmall? The compagny where I will take the paint can't mix two RAL

For red, and white and silver (rear rims)

Do you paint the exhaust manifold with a high temperature paint? what color do you use (I can choose between black and grey (silver))?

and last question, how much paint will I need?

A compagny can provide me PPG paint. I know you use this brand in the US, so what references do you use?

 

Thanks a lot for your help!

A restoration pro told me about this cast blast and I tried it and really like it compared to other high temp black paints.

I don't find it here ? I will keep searching... It looks really nice, almost as a new part!

Thanks for the colors but if someone knows RAL... about red 3003 seems too dark and 3002 seems too clear, a mix between both isn't possible where I can have good quality paint (it is a paint maker, with prices 2 or 3 times cheappers than PPG, for the same quality)

  I am a gallon in right now and have not touched the wheels or hubs. Thanking two gallons will catch it. Maybe a gallon and three quarts but that would probably cost more than two gallons. 

  Do some research on that paint. Red is a hard keeper and I regret saving money in the past.

  Looks good thanks for sharing.

If you post your questions in a general ih forum you will get more replies. There are even a few French speakers on there to help with translations. 

BTW my family name is French.

  Then maybe buy equal amounts if it is good paint and mix them 50/50. Use hardner. We are going to work not the parade and our paint deal is a little quick. Some of it is hot water pressure washed with degreaser. Then spray it down with aluminum bright ( acid ) and let it dry. That etches the old paint and pressure wash it again. If you use sealer you can paint over shortly after spraying it that will cut down on the amount of color paint you have to use.  I did not do that taking my short cuts. Will not have any gray showing up if it flakes off. Will take more time doing the sheet metal.

  It stinks when you save a little money on paint and have a pink tractor 4 years later. Spraying Martin Senior this time. I thank it's good. Have to drive an hour for PPG but Napa delivers the other.

thanks for your replies

I have some informations which tells about 2 gallons. In my case everything is dimantle and I will paint each part one by one, which will ask more paint I guess. But 2 gal is a good start!

 

I will use an epoxy primer (with zinc in it againt rust) and a polyuréthane paint. Both with hardner.

What color do you use in primer? white or grey?

 

About brakes... I find kits to change all brakes but there is spings in the kit and I don't remember to have dismantle springs. Perhaps there was differents mounting?

  Last time the fenders were gray lacquer, the paint was pretty good. The hood was sanded to bare metal and a brown rust-Oleum primer. The red all turned about the same color in a few years.

I received the paint few month ago

the primer is white/ clear grey

I choosed the RAL3002 because I prefer clear red than dark red... It's my taste!

I have some questions about tools...

I own those tools: https://catalog.kingtony.eu/fr/2031-1216sr

and https://catalog.kingtony.eu/fr/1647-4526sr04

But I always need a wrench which isn't into theses combinations... I can do the work with a metric wrench but I don't understand... Does it exist others wrenches dimensions than I have?

About cooling system on my 756, I have to replace hoses.

The one at the bottom is #396355R1 and according to the next website link it is the good one: https://www.messicks.com/part/396355r1/hose-radiator

The other on the top should be #406766R1 but it exists the ref #396354R1 (if I understand correctly it is for tractors with serial number before 15185)

My serial number is 17871 so do you confirm it is #406766R1? You can the a pic of the tractor to compare, I am talking about the yellow circle :)

Thanks in advance for your help, those parts aren't frequent in Europe and I don't want to order for a wrong ref!

The one in red is # 3132912R1; it looks right: https://www.messicks.com/part/3132912r1/hose
