Follow-up to Overhaul Break-in Procedure on H

Fired her up on Saturday after the overhaul. After several miles up and down the farm-to-market road at various rpm's, she smoothed out very nicely at normal 'RUN' on the temperature. Part way down the road she started with a repetitive grinding and squeal, and of course the palms became immediately cold and sweaty in 100 degree heat. The fear faded when I determined that the fan belt was slipping on the crankshaft pulley. A noise in the area of a crankshaft will get your attention real fast. I never noticed that fan and generator hub assembly had been tightend against pulley with several loops of bailing wire. Evidently the nut to tighten the belt had been maxed out. Now I need to pull a functional water pump fan assembly (54 148 DA) from a parts tractor. The slippage doesn't raise the temperature that I can tell. Thanks to BKen and the Red on break-in's.

Congratulations! At least yours is running decent right off the bat. In 100 degree heat the indicator would definitely be in the run area.

Whew! I'll bet that you would've made the doctor blanch if he'd had you hooked up to an EKG when that squeal started! Hope the fix is as easy as it sounds.

Today's Featured Article - Chores - by Frank Young. The ceaseless passing of time! It is at once our friend and our enemy. It measures our progress and it makes us old. Like most features of our life, few things are all good or all bad, and most such judgments depend on our own perspective or viewpoint. In our particular hobby, we enjoy the nostalgic return to the days of our youth as we recreate many of the scenes that took place on the family farm that served as the stage for the first few acts of the play that is our live ...
