IT Runs! and drips! Oil gage question...

Well today the 600/800 finally got to run and move under its own power for a few seconds. The oil pressure gage was reading 20psi and dripping heartily, so I tightened the fiting a little, and got it to read 30 psi and still drip. I pulled the adapter fitting between the gage and the steel line and discovered a split where it screws over the gage. So, I went out back to the parts tractor and stole the fitting off it. I was real careful not to overtighten and still the oil gage drips at the fitting like a stuck pig. Anyone have any ideas about what I did wrong? Gonna take a real close look tomorrow. Also my temperature sender will not fit into the hole on the back of the head. The hole is too small and finer thread than the gage I got from a reputable parts place. Do I need to redrill and tap for the larger fitting or did I somehow get the wrong gage end? Hopefully tomorrow I'll have all the little details ironed out and the Delco 12V alternator all wired up. Then a few hours of testing and the loader goes back on. It sure looks like a whole new tractor, at least forward of the seat. IT sure was nice to have all the wiring problems gone, and a real key switch instead of hot wiring it all the time! (Having all four cylinders firing and no smoke is a new experience too!)

Hi Truck,

Can't tell if the oil line is an old or new line...and same with oil pressure gauge.

If old, acquire a new one from FNH. Because of the small gauge line, and if rusted or thin you can predict that a crack or break may occur again.

Contact George Bradish for a black bezeled oil gauge if you are wanting to get the correct type of 80# guage on your your 600/800.

The fitting should snug just fine onto any of the Ford type of gauges.

But, you may want to try some teflon tape around the threads and see if that works.

I'm working on an 871 with 703 loader right now, and it is now apart and in pieces in the drive, and various shades of the old paint, primer, grease and blothed white from zinc phoshpate. Three layers of old paint on this rig!

The hydraulic system which never worked before the engine swap also came to life immediately. All I had to do was remove the towel some previous mechanic had installed in the pump manifold intake side! Oh Happy Day!

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
