Put the finishing touches on the 730 tonite. Had to replace a cracked head, never Ether'd or overheated, but anyway's. I let it run to warm up so I could re-torqe & I noticed the rocker arms weren't oiling properly. I pulled them off both heads & discovered they were never assembled correctly at the factory. Oil holes on the wrong side. I'm ashamed I didn't discover it in 1988 when she was majored, then in 2004 when I did a valve job. Will somebody please fire me??!!

I ran into the same problem on a Massey Ferguson 65. I did some technical reading in my genuine Massey service manual and my I.T. manual. They disagree on the direction the rocker shaft is installed. Then after looking the shaft over, I found the I.T. to be wrong. The I.T. manual went in the trash can.

Today's Featured Article - Welding Basics - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the most useful skills that an owner of older equipment can have is the knowledge and ability to weld. It seems like the older equipment can do a job, albeit slowly compared to newer stuff, but it tends to break more often. Many of the breakdowns are related to the implements that are being used: the disc, wagon or bushog are among them. Knowing how to fix stress cracks, reinforce weak joints by welding on steel support plates, or cutting and shaping parts and adapters out of raw stee ... [Read Article]
