I am wondering how the front wheels can have such a big lug nut using a 1 3/4 socket you figure, when the rear wheels use 1 1/8 socket.

Oh, any time you don't directly answer someone's question exactly as it's asked, some people get bent out of shape...

Look, there is nothing wrong with providing additional supporting information, or getting someone to think about their issue from a different perspective. Maybe the person literally hadn't thought about just walking out there with a tape measure? When you can get a whole set of tools for what one wrench would cost, how is that bad?

A little extreme, but if someone came here with the question, "What kind of knife should I use to plunge into my thigh?" You would just tell him "butter" or "Bowie?" You wouldn't question his rationale for plunging a knife into his thigh? You wouldn't try to convince him that it was a bad idea and maybe there was a different solution to his issue?

I went work on the lug nuts today (12 degrees in the barn) and I can report there are 10 - 1 1/2? lug nuts on the front axel of an IH 706 with front wheel power assist.

I had a most fortuitous situation yesterday. After leaving Harbor Freight empty handed yesterday, I stoped to see my parents. I was telling my father about my new project and my need for large sockets. Out of the clear blue he said check in the back porch your grandfather?s mechanics tools are in the back corner under a bunch of boxes. Upon digging the old toolboxes out I found a complete set of S and K sockets going up to 2 inches, a total game changer.

My grandfathers old sockets that I found yesterday in my parents back porch, a little heat and some penetrating oil and the wheel popped right off. Next step installing a tube, so I can get this thing out of the barn.

Thanks for the followup. SK tools are sweet. Your grandfather had good taste. You'll be passing them on to your grandchildren some day.

You've got an Elwood axle on your 706, not the usual Coleman that would have come from the factory at that time. Coleman has 12 lugs per wheel and from what little I could find in the online parts book, only 1/2" diameter fasteners.

Elwood's a marginally better axle, better turning radius at least.

I was very lucky to find the tools.

One more issue....

The tractor apparently has one more issue.
There is hydraulic leak in the steering. Hydraulic fluid comes out of the steering wheel, the center, as it starts to get a little warm from use. After a few hours the steering isn't normal. I haven t seen it because I haven t started it but this is what I have been told. Does anyone have any thoughts.?

New to blogging should I start a new thread with question?

You can get a steering hand pump rebuild kit from IH, it is part number 86585473. They are not difficult to work on, just keep everything clean and pay attention to how it comes apart.

I should have said Seal Kit, it is just the seals and no hard components.

Thank you for the quick response on the steering issue. I will try to get it ordered tomorrow, is this an universal kit for all 706 tractors.

Thinking about it I should have grabbed the serial number and any other identifying information yesterday.

Are there any tricks of the trade to remove the unit and the re- install. I am somewhat mechanical but this is all new for me.

Thanks for any suggestions....
