Re: I like to suport the little guy, BUT

Back in 1991 I went to the local Case IH dealership to purchase a new door switch for the dome light of my 79 Scout. I was astonished to learn that all products and parts for it were dropped from their product line. Only a few months before I had ordered some new windshield wiper arms with no proble...

Re: Dreaded Hydro Gasket

There were several that laid claim to the idea and at about the same time. I never saw the point.
With the factory gasket proven to last 30 - 35+ years and costing less than seven bucks why even bother with anything else.

Re: Never had this happen

If $142. was spent back in the day then most likely the field windings were changed out. There does need to be some clearance between the winding retainer plates and armature. In this case I think that as things expand a bit an interference issue shows up. Normal operating temp for these units is ab...

An armature short can be one likely cause yes. The insulation is obviously compromised. Armatures can be problematic to test on the bench.

Yes sir it happens. The field windings can catch fire too. With their closed cases you will not smell a thing until the external paint starts burning.

Re: High-boss vs Low-boss Cylinder Head ???

A general rule of thumb when engaging threads into cast iron is one and one half times the diameter of the of the stud or bolt. More when ever possible. So a 3/8" bolt should protrude proud at least 9/16". Factor into this the thickness of the washers and head gasket as well. And yes,I totally agree...

Re: Starter or Relay or Something Else ???

Only one way to find out.
The chances are good. Knock off reproductions are just that. Likely it was manufactured using an existing unit as a guide, or their version of engineering drawings. Minor changes such as threads English to Metric may come into play. It's worth looking into.

Re: PTO belt problems

About nine years ago there was a run of defective IH-490489-R2 belts, this is the 1" shorter PTO belt meant for the narrow frame.

Type A belt will work just fine for the spindles. However for the PTO to deck belt I prefer the genuine article.
It has a much thicker cross section than a type A belt making it far less likely to invert when twisting around the idler pulleys.
