There was a revision of the drive train on those hydros.  Is it possible the drive belt was changed because of that?

Both early & later versions called for the identical belt in the Agco books.

Yesterday morning I picked up a new 84", and 83".

Then I went to one of my carcass, and pulled the belt off.

It was a 83", and in good shape. Same length as the new

83" Dayco I'd just picked up.(when held against each other)

 I put the used 83" on. Looks to

be the right fit. I'll see later today when I get it running again.

I also got the neutral return cam back together. I had to make

up a step bushing that fits into the tower side because I melted

the OE bushing with the torch, when I tore it down.

Also drained the engine "Oil". :(  :(

I've never seen anything like it before.

It came out, like a half melted Gummy Bear.

I've been flushing it with varsol. Is there something better I should be doing?

 

Also put some new rubber on the back. One of the rears that was on it leaked.

Now you can take the new belts back! I think that 'oil' has see better days! I think I would run a bit of Marvel Mystery oil in with the first new oil and change pretty quick again. Should help flush out some of the nasty stuff!

Good news on the fit for the belt.

"Half melted gummy bear" LOL. Great mental image. This is the heated shop, right? I mean, that engine isn't 20 below or anything, is it?

As for clean out, varsol (zippo lighter fluid) should cut thru almost anything... But I usually use warm kerosene... Lower flash point.
For the few bolts a pan gasket, and the extra couple hours, have you considered doing an exploratory surgery & cleaning? I suppose if it ain't broke, don't fix it...

Thought about tearing it apart, but I think I'll see how runs on the ground first.

At this point, I don't even know yet, if the hydro is any good.

So far the only money I've spent is a spark plug, and cleaning toxins.

I don't know if we can get MMO up here, so I'll flush more with

varsol, and add Rislone to the oil change.

 

Yes, the shop is warm. That stuff was almost like Jello.

Who does that to an engine? :(

Rislone is good. You can also use a small amount of ATF. Main thing is to flush to engine. Let it run and warm up real good and drain it back out. The rings might be stuck in it with that goop in the crankcase.

Yes, if everything else works good, I plan on changing out the oil a few times

in short order.

Thanks for the ATF tip Kenny.

I saw that in the late 60s where some people put extra STP oil into their big engines and ran them hard. When the engine was shut down and cooled it wouldn't start again. When the oil pan was dropped it was full of "grease". Extra is not always better.

 

The engine in my HD6G had water in it. I'll be dropping the pan from it soon. No fun but its better than the consequences. Good Luck, Rick

:bigrofl: The ONLY thing worse than having melted Gummy Bears in your engine is to have Dancing Gummy Bears stuck in your computer monitor. :bigrofl:
