Kenneth P - Gear drives may be simpler, but don't you feel you're missing out on something special by not having a "do-hickie flapper?"

Actually, having watched and read photos and conversations on clutches, broken shifter forks, etc, I'll stick with my hydros! Oh wait - I almost forgot, I found me a 100 sitting in a grove of trees on my recent trip to Nebraska. I'll be picking it up the first weekend in April. (I'm more than a little paranoid about working on it though, with all the talk of broken knuckles on large hands working on NF's!)

I feel a little foolish getting this tractor that's been sitting outside for at least the past 15 years, when Lucky Leon finds treasures! Oh, well!

Greg, besides the 108, I have an off topic Varidrive and a hydro. So I have do-hickies and thingamabobs to play with. Just fun to stir the pot.

GREG - Nice thing about GD's is the clutch & shifter problems are an OCCASIONAL problem. I habe a 46 and 43 yr old GD out in the shop that the insides of the trans on both have never seen the light of day since they were built in LVL. he reduction hgs & diff areas have since I put brake pucks in one and change the oil by removing the rear covers.

In very sever usage like IH Farmall plant used CC's in hauling trash, mowing, blowing, plowing & sweeping snow the hydro's held up better but for most mowing (open areas) & especially moldboard plowing, & spraying a GD works better.

Best thing is to have at least ONE of each.

Don, first look at your pic and thought 'what the h***'. Looked like the cylinder was over sized at the top. Then I saw what was going on. Had me worried there for a sec.

MORNING DON.

You making those end gaps on the top ring about .014-.015"?

The second and oil control rings can be a bit tighter if I remember the manual right.

Mid to top end of the range in the manual is better than the low end. Prevents ring end butting which is bad!

When installing hydraulic lift, should the spool valve, cylinder, lines, etc. be filled with hytran? How do you bleed the system?

KENNY P. - What is a "VariDrive"? There were a couple belt drive CC's, the '61-'63 Originals, 1100 and one of the 582's.

DON - as long as the pieces that broke off aren't too big things will be fine. I think your ring gaps are good too.

DON - the jd belt thing-a-ma-jig is called a "VARIATOR". My cousin had their #110 sitting by the barn maybe a year or two old once when I visited them, and our #70 was maybe 3-4 yrs old. I ran the 110 around to play with the variator, was O-K but not a hydro, and not worth the problems keeping it working right.

Later my uncle got a CC WF with a mower & tiller, might have had hyd. lift too.

On their big tractors they went from red, to green, to blue. WHAT were they thinking?
