I am getting closer & closer to having a tractor, that's clean, and running. I have been working on this thing to long. I do it as my funds allow, and when I have time between all the other home projects, that have to be done first, and rain.

But now I have to pull the tank, and valve cover back off. I got ahead of myself, and forgot to test the return line from the injectors, for leaks. Arrrr! Trust me, it's not the first back up I've done, and won't be the last! lol

One basic question. which hole is the right one, for the power steering pump tensioner to be in. I had it in the one in the picture, but changed it to the straight above the one it's in, in the picture. I don't think it matters, but I asked to be sure.

All the bearings & bushings, and pin is new in the front end. I replaced the cam & gears on both ends, and all engine gaskets.

I have gone through the injector pump, went through the hyd pump, starter. Converted it to alt. disassembled the steering sector, cleaned the insides, and replaced the seals for the shafts.

Hooked up the right fuel filter. Took the injectors apart and cleaned them inside, and replaced the copper seals. I took the head completely apart , cleaned all the parts, lap the valve, installed new seals.

I took the oil pump out and checked it inside. Weld up all the cracks in the fan blade. changed from vertical exhaust to horizontal. Drained all fluids. cleaned the trans oil screen. bought all new bushings for the Rest-O-Ride seat.

Bought a new ignition switch, cleaned the gen & low hyd lights, and have new battery cables. I will make all new wiring myself.

Everything has been removed, cleaned and painted, not just sprayed around it. Then contact surfaces cleaned, where a ground is needed.

Yet to do.
Is replace the PTO seals, gasket, and anything it needs fixed under the seat, and in the brakes drums. Finish painting the blue, and start painting everything that's white, so that I can assemble the rest! and get all new gauges & proof meter. Buy a new battery. Paint wheels & replace front tires.

I know I have missed some things I've done, & need to do yet.

If I had to remove a bolt, it was holding something that need to be fixed, rebuilt, or replaced! I'm not done removing bolts, yet.

Pat

As I found it







So far now

Looking great TinCan!! Couple suggestions: I know that some color contrast is pleasing to the eye, so if you paint your starter correct blue, then paint the injection pump correct silver, (it should actually be unpainted but that is more difficult), You will have it closer to correct and retain the same amount of contrast. When you get to the brakes take pics of the springs for a guide for reassembly. The two sides are different.

Nice work.

One comment: Replace the fan blade if it is cracked. People have been killed by ejected fan blades.

Ill have to disagree on the injection pump color. In this video of the original sales slide show I converted to digital all the pumps on the red tractors are red. I have one on the 2000 4000 as well. The color of the film is off but best I can tell it is blue.

Thanks guys, I "appreciate it"

It been work, but I enjoyed doing it. I bought it understanding that I needed to roll up my shirt sleeves and do some work. I just didn't thing it was going to be so much trouble figuring the timing problem out. But Hey! It's fixed, and on to the next part, that needs it.

The starter is a replacement, and was black, so I repainted it black.

The fan blade, I believe cracked because it has a replacement water pump on it. When the made the hub on it, they forgot to tap one hole. It's on the leading edge, which would allow the blade to twist out wards, and eventually cracking it. I have weld it good, and taped the hole. It sits on it good and snug. I don't think it will crack again.

The injection pump was blue, so I repainted it blue. You can kinda see the blue in the picture.

The wiring was a mess. He told me that his father-inlaw had it so you had to put a jumper wire on some where to start it. It was so that he left it out in the field, and didn't want someone to jump on it and steal it.

He had died 15 yrs ago, and didn't show him (I bought it from the son-inlaw) how to start it. I just think it was so screwed up, that he had to do something other then turn the key, and push a button to start it. You had to see it, it was really messed up. Plus there was no wire going to the heaters (glow plugs).

The old saying, "It ran great when parked"

Thanks, Pat

Yes Ford puller I stand corrected. I was going by some distributors that I had seen that were bare alloy, knowing that the pumps would have been handled the same was as distributors during production. Looking again at the original brochure of the new tractors for 1958 that I have, I could see that what I was seeing was not the distributor itself but a bare metal data plate attached to the distributor.
