    Cub stuck clutch, but I think it's a pack rat

    That's a question I had. How far back does the clutch pedal and linkage go? I can't tell what's how far back. From my looking at things, the clutch pedal part of the linkage is about half-way back on the torque tube, and the pile of crap starts about halfway back on the torque tube. The...

    Cub stuck clutch, but I think it's a pack rat

    Shop vac. Didn't think of that. I started with the wire, and didn't manage to get any of it to move. Really hard starting with a bend in the wire to get in the tube, then getting something to go over the top of the crud in there. By linkage, you mean the back side of the cradle that's...

    860 hood front upper support

    Mine just attaches at those four points. Two big bolts in bottom front, two smaller ones back by the console. I did get two pads when I replaced the radiator. I kind of thought they were to go under the radiator - some kind of spacers. But they weren't there when I took the old radiator off...

    Cub stuck clutch, but I think it's a pack rat

    I'm about the fifth person to post about a stuck clutch on a cub, but I think my problem is a little different. I bought a cub three years ago, replaced the stuck valves, did some more work on it, and it mostly runs well now. But the clutch has never worked right. The clutch plate works fine...

    Ford 800/900 Hydraulic Remote - Auxiliary Port

    Followup - you were both right on the money. But three notes: - This remote wasn't closed center. The only time the tractor worked harder was when the splitter was up against some of my nasty elm and couldn't make progress. - I wanted the hoses hooked up so I could pull the remote (on the...

    Ford 800/900 Hydraulic Remote - Auxiliary Port

    OK. So I'll forget about that auxiliary port - I'll probably just put the bolt back in it (has a special washer). I don't really have a use for it. I'll hook up the splitter to the remote's pair of hoses. I'll tie it one way and have someone operate the splitter to see if we like the...

    Ford 800/900 Hydraulic Remote - Auxiliary Port

    Thanks Mark! So what's the purpose of that auxiliary port then? Sounds like it's just for picking something else up like the lift arms do. If I made a modified fill cover that the return hose attached to, so it went directly into the sump, would that be a horrible thing to do? The remote...

    Ford 800/900 Hydraulic Remote - Auxiliary Port

    I have a Ford 860 with a Ford 311877 single spool remote on it. Works like this one at Steiner: https://www.external_link/FDS3364-Single-Spool-Double-Acting-Hydraulic-Remote-Valve-Kit, but it's not that one. If it helps, I can show some pictures of mine. Has one handle, for a pair of...

    Thoughts on Tire Sizes?

    Yeah, that's the plan right now. Maxed out on farm expenses for the year, so I'll put in a new tube, put it all back together, then buy two new rims (12") and two new tires next year. Thanks to both of you! Thought it would be good to get more opinions, just in case. [Edit] - BTW...

    Thoughts on Tire Sizes?

    But the kicker is that it's had the 10" rims and the 13.6 tires on it since before I got it. I've had it for 14 years. I expect it's had two-inch-too-narrow rims for at least 20 years. I'm kind of surprised I've never had a problem with W12 tires on W10 rims. Yeah, that's the way I'm...

    Thoughts on Tire Sizes?

    Just had a nail puncture my filled tube on my Ford 860. I kept wondering why there was 'water' on the floor, tasted it, and realized something was wrong. That nail must have been working its way in for a decade or more. But, when I got things drained and taken apart, I discovered I have the...

    McCormick 32 Sickle Mower - replace seal?

    OK, but how do you get the pitman bearing off? It's the smaller bearing, mounted on the shaft sticking off of that flywheel. It's in the way of the puller getting to the main shaft. I tried to pull that thing off and damaged the end of it's shaft in the process. The darned thing wouldn't go...

    McCormick 32 Sickle Mower - replace seal?

    Hey Rusty! Yours is in better shape than mine, from the pictures you had earlier. Someone bent my main support beam once upon a time. Still works great though. Except for that seal. That flywheel is 10 or 11 inches. Apparently you can get an 11" three-arm puller for less than $100 now...

    Farmall H (and others) - What's the center tube mount for?

    Thanks everyone! About to switch back from my tip loader to the cultivator, and was wondering. Very helpful!

    McCormick 32 Sickle Mower - replace seal?

    Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. Not sure where I'm going to get a puller that big. Might have to take the mower to a shop for that. Most of the people I know come to borrow [b:6cab5109b5]my[/b:6cab5109b5] tools, so I'm pretty sure they're not going to have one.

    Hmm. And what's the trick to getting pictures to show up?

    McCormick 32 Sickle Mower - replace seal?

    Anyone know anything about replacing seals on older McCormick sickle mowers? I have a number 32, and the seal behind the flywheel doesn't really work anymore. It flings out whatever I put in the oil reservoir within a half hour of filling it. I can get the [i:cb5d36a91a]front[/i:cb5d36a91a]...

    Farmall H (and others) - What's the center tube mount for?

    I have a question about a mounting point on my Farmall H. I kind of thought it would be used for cultivators, but it looks like it isn't. So I'm wondering what the heck it [i:a228173bfa]is[/i:a228173bfa] for. Here's a good picture: That mounting point is the lowest part of the frame in...

    Ford 860 PTO clutch not stopping right

    An update: Don't know if it's the only problem, but clearly I need to adjust that clutch pedal. Also trying to line up a replacement bushing for it. It wobbles a lot more than it probably should. I was able to loosen the lock nut, but the actual adjustment - um, thingy - is locked up and...

    Ford 860 PTO clutch not stopping right

    Thanks to the three of you - I need to dig up my service manual and look at the tractor to see how to adjust that pedal. Soundguy, for #3, which cotter pin is that? I won't be back out there until tomorrow night at the earliest, so I'll get back on here after that and report back. Whatever...
