Our 560 had a skip, we replaced an injector ($250), still skipped, took it to the dealer. He replaced a bad rocker arm and push rod. He split the tractor to do it. Said it was easier than removing the fuel tank. Bill $550.

That fuel tank can't be that hard to remove, is it? I had to change a rocker arm and push rod in my 656D. Mine was near front of engine, so no problem with fuel tank. My memory is a bit fuzzy on this, fuel tanks on 560 and 656 both went ahead over engine aprox. 2 cylinders, right or wrong. I don't know that the tanks are the same but close. They both hold 33 US gal. I would think most any wrenching guy on here would be quite willing to remove tank and put it back on for half the $550. Your probably talking US dollars, I would do it for half the $550 in Canadian money, 656 or 560 either one.

With engine running try loosening injector lines at the injector. Try each one separately, to see if you can isolate which one and if indeed it makes any difference at all. How is the power? Is there a chance it smooths out under heavy load. I had one of these tractors when they were new. I had pump set to give 90+ hp. After doing that, engine had a flutter when over 1000 rpm and no load. It would smooth out under load. I asked IH service rep if he could take the annoying flutter out of tractor. He said,"I can if you want to go back to 65 hp."

Interesting part is my tractor went 11,000 hours with a set of pistons and sleeves at 7,500 hours. In the end it put two pistons out through block. Another fact this happened with tractor on silage blower at tower silo. It happened with tractor running full throttle, no load while employees were making a quick change of wagons. I met a guy at a tractor show this summer had exactly same thing happen his 282 diesel.

I had 560 on dyno 3 times in the 16 years. It always came in between 90 and 100. Service man told me he got it over a 100 once, and he toned it down a bit.

Today's Featured Article - A 1937 John Deere Unstuck - by Gary Hickman. Here is my story of how I got the pistons out of a 1937 JD B that the engine had been stuck for about 14 years: About 12 years ago my Dad gave me one of the tractors I ran as I was growing up on our farm in central Nebraska. The engine on this tractor, a 1937 John Deere "B", had been stuck for 2 years before he gave it to me. This last spring (1999) I hauled the tractor to our 2 acre lot in St. Libory Nebraska where it joined my antique machinery collection, at that time a 1929 Caterpillar T ... [Read Article]
