The Old Tractor Forum / Re: 1949 Miniapolise oline ZAU restore
« on: October 05, 2015, 06:20:27 PM »
I love these old tractors.    My "old faithful" is an International 404 gas that was made in the 50s.    The hydraulics are driving me nuts.   It only works when it wants to.  It might lift 5 times straight, or only once per day, or less.    When it lifts,   it lifts strong and fast.   It is full of fluid.   I now have it running without a filter.    I have ordered one three times, and the local IH counter can't get me the right one, and I no longer have or remember the old one.    I rebuilt the engine in the spring of 14.   It runs great,other than the hydraulic issues.

Take your time...............Rome wasn't built in a day.   I'm sure you'll get the bugs out, but what you have done so far so quick is amazing.

Great job!

Didn\'t mean to leave this open.  I bought a  Massey Ferguson 285,  about 90 HP.

The owner covered up a  lot of problems.  I almost have everything fixed now,   but it has taken a lot of time and money to repair the old problems he masked.

A true lemon, I got burned pretty bad.   But considering the price I paid for it,   in the  long run I\'ll be A-OK, I hope.

Thanx,  CrAzY

I live 30 minutes from one of the largest tractor junkyards on the East coast.    "Fitz tractor" is the name of it.   They have  ACRES of tractors in all stages of disassembly.   And the prices aren\'t too bad.

My International 404 is bi-polar, lol.   Sometimes the 3 point hitch works, sometimes it doesn\'t.    I tore it down, nothing was broken.  Shouldn\'t be the hyd pump, or it would not work at all.   I think a line inside is leaking,   and when the pump picks the excess fluid, it works.  When it has pumped all the fluid  (Quickly, lol!)   I am going to overfill it just to see what happens.

    My Ferguson 285 has a cracked rear end housing.  Gonna tear it down next week,  I have to fix it before Spring planting season.   Housing is two bills, ouch.

    And then there is my 165 Ferguson.   Newly rebuilt,  just before it started smoking terribly heavy all at once, and lost power.  Barely made it home.    Loaded it up with injector cleaner, enough to do 400 gallons!   Let it set a year, then cranked it.   NO smoke, though it didn\'t sound exactly right.   NO hydraulic fluid was in it, so I just turned it off real quick.   Might be fixed, as far as I know, lol.  

With diesel fuel being so high,  produce prices are going up.   I may plant a giant garden this year, if I feel better.   Would surely save my family a ton of money.

Buddy, I hope you find all the parts and have time to complete it.   The number to Fitz is 404 685-7850.   I\'d be glad to go get the parts for you.

Looking better!   I have my later Fathers El Camino, but can\'t get a title to it.   He was a car dealer and never changed it over to his name.   We don\'t know whose name it is in, and it doesn\'t show up in any surrounding states by VIN.     The title companies on the net want about $400 for a clear title.    I can\'t swing that right now.
