We have a '59 diesel and I'm about to pull the pump to see why ours isn't lifting. I believe the pump is a multiple piston type and it's located in the "belly" of the housing forward of the tranny. You should see a pan on the bottom. The AC manual and also the I & T manual have quite a bit of info on troubleshooting the pump and the system. I've never worked on ours, but as they say: "I fixin to learn"...In my case I have an 80 year-old mechanic thats going to look over my shoulder. If you don't have a manual, you need to get one. I might even have an extra one here, I'd have to check.

I think I have a new D17 operators manual (not a photocopy) and I might have an I & T Service manual (used in good shape and not a photocopy). I purchased the factory service manual new and have no "extras" of that one. Repost with your email and I'll get in touch with you. You can add a letter in your address or something to prevent spamming, or other means to hide your address from spammers, but where I could figure it out....

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
