Butch, i dont know which motor was in the TL. The low pressure filter problem you are reading about is a couple of the smaller old ALLIS motors. THe filter is an add on type thing. They bleed 15% of the total volume away from the lubricationi circuit, run it thru a filter and then dump that to sump. If you open the filter (less restriction) you loose too much to sump. These are not like a newer auto type motor where 100% of the oil is filtered then goes to the bearings. That type you would want low restriction in the filter.

Thanks Steve, that makes sense. I will change the filter again before I use it today. The motor is a WC, so I am told. When I got it the engine was stuck so I pulled the head and go it free. I noticed that the pistons were not coming all the way up, an old Allis guy told me someone had put in WD pistons but left the WC crank. You would think that it would be hard to start but it fires up in all weather from 100 to 20 below. Thanks again, you might have saved my motor.

i dont know a lot about the WC -Wd motors, but i dont think the pistons come up to the top of the deck on them. These old motors only have about 6 to 1 compression. If the piston is almost 1/2 inch from the top, that could be normal.

We had a TL10 for 20 years, and it had a WD engine in it.I overhauled the whole engine in 74 and it was all WD.

It could very well be a WD engine all the way . I have never had a WD or WC so I wouldn`t know the difference,maybe the piston thing is normal. At any rate, I did get a cotton oil filter before I used it yesterday.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
