That part is known as either a wind deflector or a Roof Fairing. I believe the latter is the correct technical term. To satisfy your curiosity about the other parts as well. I know it is a little more than you asked but what the hell I'm on a roll. 1: Tractor Unit (or Truck) 2: Semi- Trailer. 10: Pedestal (crank unit has 2 speeds) 11: Trailer Dolly( ...

It's most typically called a wind deflector. You can see it listed as such on this website. It can also be called a cab air deflector or even an air foil.

This does not sound like an electrical problem to me. Let me break down the issue a bit and see if we can come to some conclusions. The engine starts fine with starter fluid. This tells me that it is consistently generating a spark. Hence, we can rule out electric systems, except the possibility of a weak battery. You are turning the engine for a ...

Your mower has a transaxle. It's belt driven and has a primary belt that resembles a fan belt for a car. Here is an online resource. Search the URL with "Removing Primary Drive Belt (SX85)" and it will give a diagram and instructions on removing and replacing the drive belt, if that's the issue. The manual covers many other areas as well.

This is common practice in the agricultural industry ( I worked as a agricultural contract driver) as it is an easy and cheap way of adding weight to the tractor when needed. It works as the relatively low rotating speed of the wheels ( tends to be the rear mostly) means the water stays in the bottom part of the wheel. Edit: the extra weight can also be to ...

Just wanted to combine a number of the comments into an answer: Older diesel tractors really didn't have much in the way of electrics for the engine, aside from the starter, and you have already told us the engine turns over nicely so the basic assumption is that the electrics are okay. Also, as zipzit commented, if the smoke came as you touched the cables ...

This absolutely is the high pressure fuel injection pump for the diesel engine. I cannot tell for sure, but it looks as though this is a three cylinder engine (?) as I can only see two fuel lines coming out the right side of the injector pump. I'm assuming the third one is on the back side of this, behind the fuel line coming from the fuel tank (larger line ...

Turns out the carburetor just needed to be rebuilt. Once I was able to do that, the tractor took a second to start up, but it ran great afterwards.

You'll need about 40 HP @ 3600 rpm at a minimum in order to run it. Here is my math (please correct me if I'm wrong): 35 HP @ 540 rpm = 340.41 ft lbs (convert HP to Torque) 340.41 / 6 = 56.735 ft lbs (6:1 gear reduction) 56.735 @ 3600 rpm = 38.89 HP (minimum size of engine if actually running at 3600rpm) You'll need to look at the spec of any engine to ...

They used different manufacturers and models of carburetors through the years, or it could have been replaced with a different kind. You are best to pull the carb and gently clean it to find mfg or model numbers stamped into the throttle base or on a tag http://www.steinertractor.tv/Wrenching-with-Rachel/How-to-identify-your-carburetor/189272--3848536

I am presuming that a tractor has similar steering components as my Land Rover. If so the possible faults are - Universal joint broken that connects steering column to steering box. Splines stripped on steering box input shaft. Splines stripped on steering box output shaft. Steering box internals worn. Drag link disconnected from steering box output arm. ...

Gasoline is a fire hazard to the tractor, and can degrade rubber hoses and seals in the cooling system. Do a complete flush and fill, as soon as possible.

A standard 22.5" x 8.25" Alcoa wheel (p/n 88367x) has a disc thickness of .875" which is about double the thickness of a steel wheel. You can find this and more information here https://buytruckwheels.com/22-5x8-25-hub-piloted-alcoa-wheel-lvl-one-finish.html **full disclosure I work for buytruckwheels.com

As others have clearly stated, it is indeed a wind deflector or a roof fairing. As this article states, the purpose of it is to reduce the drag that would be produced by wind hitting the trailer directly. It is especially useful for highway driving, where the amount of wind encountered could substantially affect gas mileage. The foil cuts through the wind ...

I've re-read your post a few times. If you cant turn the engine over without the injectors, assuming its in neutral and there are no other external impediments, then it does sound seized. Id have one last go at trying to turn it over by towing it. Towing it in neutral and then in gear with foot on clutch should confirm that the gearbox, clutch, brakes &...

I'd suggest your float is stuck and allowing unfettered fuel to access the engine without flooding it (somehow). An engine will have grey-ish smoke when there's way too much fuel. If it's just enough to run rich, it will smoke black. The difference being the grey is raw aerated fuel coming out, where the black is partially burnt. I would bet if you pulled ...

I have refilled the steering pump oil reservoir with about 0.5 liter of hydraulic fluid, and the steering wheel moves smoothly and without any problem. I really thought that the power steering was operating on the gears/hydraulic oil just like the main hydraulic pump that moves the hydraulic arms.

You have four bolt holes in a line, you need to get or make a puller the uses the centre point on the shaft and the two bolt holes closest to the shaft to pull the plate off. Do Not use a hammer and smack the sh1t out of it as then the shaft increases in diameter and won’t pass through the hole in the plate. If you make one then you need some strong plate ...

The International I drove had a clutchless change between 1-2 then 3-4 and 5-6 , this was done with electro-hydraulic clutch packs. When they changed the clutch they put the low p sensor wire on the high sensor and vice versa - took a while to sort that!

My tractor friend diagnosed my problem after listening to what I had to say in less than 2 minutes. I used my manual for the amount of oil. The manual is incorrect, the proper amount in written inside the engine cover. I definitely added too much....... the key was dead, because he said, too much engine oil, I was going up a small incline which pushed the ...

Flush and refill as soon as you can as kmrash said. I would also refill it with water right after draining it run it for a little then drain the water. After this add the new coolant. To drain it there should be a valve at the bottom of the radiator. If you do not see one you can always remove the lower radiator hose from the, radiator not from the engine (...

What you are seeing is the use of fit type to form a positive seal. Older vehicles used harder materials (not to be mistaken for toughness or strength) for most parts. As a result it was possible to use an interference fit or a transition fit to form a seal. Attached is an image explaining this. Essentially, the fit is literally to tight for any fluid to ...

While I don't know the exact pressure of the 3-71 blower on the Detroit Diesel engines, it's actually quite minimal. It is meant as an air mover, which does pressurize the system, but nothing that great. From an educated guess standpoint, probably in the 1-2 psi range. The Detroit Series 71, being a 2-cycle diesel engine, uses the blower to ensure proper ...
