This one just has a t-handle, and it has a bigger table than yours. I'd say you'll be fine with whatever you make.

Nice looking scores, Daniel! That drill press is sweet! You get plenty of use from it!

Had a productive day.  I got the old JD F935's drive shaft installed and parked under roof in the oldest freestall barn.

Then after towing the neighbor's Case 570 to the shop, I tore into it.  The injector pump shaft was sheared off.  Had to pull the radiator out to access all the cover plate bolts.  2 more bolts to remove, then pull the cover.  I'll do that tomorrow as it's time for a bowl of chili.

I figured after hours standing at the auction & lifting stuff into the trailer (school had forklift to lift the drill press) that I'd feel rough today, but must have been the good night's sleep, as I feel better than the last 2 or 3 weeks.

Glad you had a good day! What would cause the pump shaft to break like that?

He told me he's been buying road diesel (very low sulfur) and he needs off road diesel for the lube factor of the higher sulfur content.  May not be the fuel that caused it, but once repaired, I'll recommend he use only off road diesel AND a diesel additive for extra lubing of the pump.  These pumps run extremely close tolerances, so if not enough lube factor, they can simply seize up.  I suppose it's to prevent catastrophic failure that the pump shafts reduce down to about 7/16" or less between the driven gear & the actual pump.  If the local rebuilders can't rebuild this unit, then a reman pump will run $600 to $800 or more.

It doesn't matter if it's 'road' diesel; or 'off road' diesel.  It's ALL ULSD now.

 

I use, and recommend OPTI-LUBE as an additive.  It's  just about the best additive that you can get.

Today I took the timing cover plate off the Case 570 scraped off the gasket material, and got things cleaned up a bit.  First thing next week I have to source a rebuilder for the injection pump.  I have a few options to check out.  Otherwise I just need a gasket, a few fuel line rubber seals, and new filters.

You can see where the shaft seized as it isn't so polished. Glad they made somewhere for it to break rather than inside the pump.

Actually, the pump unit seized, not any part of the shaft.  The tang off the short piece of shaft slips into the pump to drive it.  The shiny part of the shaft is where it rides in a bushing.  If the shaft wasn't sized down smaller to form a shear spot, it would possibly destroy all the timing gears if/when the pump seized.

Busy day.  Took the 16' trailer 45 miles this morning to pick up 40' of schedule 40  2" ID and 40' of 1 1/2" ID steel pipe.  Stopped on the way to shell out $2100 for the land survey.  Got home & used the chop saw to cut 16 sections.  I will be moving 7 sections of auto lock head gates from the former dairy feeders closest to my house down to the feeders at the heifer field beside the old shop.  I drove the 1 1/2" pipe sections down into the 2" pipe cast into the concrete feeders.  They were full of crud, so I used the Cat loader bucket to push them down.  Then the 2" sections will slide over the 1 1/2" pipe, and all welded as one.  Then the "5 head" sections (x7) will clamp to this new pipe.  Gonna be quite a job for one person, but the last few days my neck and shoulders have improved greatly.  I just have to work smart so not to flare up pain again.

  Then I took down all my fly control rubs and stored them away.  Fed out silage to the heifers, fed out more rolled hay, put out more protein tubs, and loose mineral.

  Most I've done in a short day in a long time, but the best part was doing it with reduced pain.

Do you think that was the intent of the necked down area on the shaft ? We used to have 1994 F800 in the fleet , with if I remember right Detroit Locker rears that would break the axles right either inside the differential or enough that you couldn't drop it out easily, Most times destroying the differential   . I always thought that if the axle had a neck down or machined straight along the axle you would only do just the axle  . After changing so many the boss had us put in open rears , then they just got stuck and we winched out lol
