    Voltage regulator question

    I'm not clear on this JMOR. I understand you say to disconnect the wire at the generator's field terminal. But you lost me when you say "connect that Field terminal to the not grounded battery terminal". Connect a jumper wire between the generator Field terminal to.......... what is the not...

    Voltage regulator question

    I didn't actually search using that part number. I was using a more general search for a Ford 801 tractor 6v generator, which I guess wasn't specific enough as most of the results I saw were for 8N's, 12volt, or discontinued (out of stock). The few I did find were over $300. Your approach...

    Voltage regulator question

    Thanks Tim, Bern, and Sean for your responses. You are right Sean, that VR I referenced is about $125. Not cheap, which is why I was concerned about the confusing (to me) description of this generator as being 6volt on the main ad, but says 12volt when you dig into the detailed specs. If it is...

    Voltage regulator question

    I need to replace the voltage regulator on my Ford 881 tractor (6 volt, positive ground). From what I've read on this website, the 6v generator max output is 20 amps. I am considering buying a VR with specs of 26-32 amp, dual polarity, B-circuit. Will this regulator work on my tractor, or...

    IH/Case #10 grain drill fertilizer box

    Thanks Fritz. I took at look at maybe a dozen or more pictures of 510's and 10's. There are variations in grass seed box configuration, but one thing that appears consistent is the 510 drills have a handle for grabbing and raising the seed box lid. However, the #10 does not have a handle...

    IH/Case #10 grain drill fertilizer box

    No, I'm not certain. We had this debate when I bought it back in 2009. Even the equipment dealer I bought it from wasn't sure if it was a 10 or 510. I later convinced myself it was a later year #10. Now I'm not sure again. There is no nameplate that I could find. I found a #10 for sale...

    IH/Case #10 grain drill fertilizer box

    Thanks to everyone for the advice and sharing the stories! I managed to get some of the feed wheels out of the fertilizer box. To a while to work them loose and gently pry up. Four of them are still attached. Of the 4, 2 of them are really stuck and snapped one of them. Not sure yet how...

    IH/Case #10 grain drill fertilizer box

    I am working on cleaning up an IH grain drill #10 that has accumulated some corrosion from mice taking residence in the fertilizer box and from sitting for several years. The "feed wheels", as they are called in the manual, supposedly can be removed and shutoff covers installed to block...

    Need SOS help

    Yes, I agree. I meant to post 1/2 turn, but even that would be much more than needed to reduce the tension. Then I considered that if all the bands were loosened, if that could cause unintended new problems. So figured I'd better un-suggest doing that.

    Need SOS help

    DISREGARD my suggestion to loosen up the bands... especially at the same time. That might create another problem. Maybe Showcrop or other SOS users have more experience on that.

    Need SOS help

    x2 what Showcrop said. You could disconnect the traction coupling at the rear axle to disengage the rear end, then back off 1 rotation (counter-clockwise) on each of the 3 band adjustment screws, then re-tighten their locking nuts. Then try starting the engine. At least that would eliminate...

    Baling twine left on field

    I have a guy cut hay on our property and he gives us a receipt for hay sale that we add to income for farmland tax uses. I find a lot of poly twine bits all over the field when he is done baling. He did round bales this year, though he has done square bales in the past. I don't like having...

    Baling twine left on field

    They use New Holland balers, but I don't know the particular models. Here are a few pictures. You can see a couple twine bits a few feet apart in one of the pics; and all the pics were taken within about 15-25 feet of each other. So I took a walk on a field tonight after reading your...

    801 runs rough when timed

    Hi Jim L WA, Thanks for your post. I went ahead and checked the rotor position when #1 piston is near TDC. The rotor lines up with the #1plug wire, just slightly forward cw to the cap #1 post. The rest of the plug wires are correctly oriented 1,2,4,3 CW (you had a typo with ccw in your...

    801 runs rough when timed

    Hi, I've been struggling with my 881 gas (6volt) in trying to get run smoothly and hoping someone here has suggestions. It didn't want to start a week ago after having sat for a couple months. It had started to run a little rough and harder to start when last used it. -- Replaced points...

    801 runs rough when timed

    Thanks JMOR. At least I figured out why it ran with less misfiring after I disconnected the #4 spark plug wire: First I tried switching the plug wire used for #4 and connected it to the #3 plug (with the other end connected to the #3 port on the distributor). The misfiring didn't carry...

    801 runs rough when timed

    Thanks JMOR. I didn't make a lot of sense to me that a lower than max fuel flow rate would cause rough running engine. But then I'm not a mechanic. I measured again the fuel flow rate today, because I realized I did not have the fuel shutoff valve under the tank open all the way (only about...
