Refinished the airbox cover and flange by sanding off all surface rust, using Rust Reformer, and re-painting in black

Ford's first job: remove our old cracked mailbox post. It struggled, but just had enough power for the job

Installed new spark plugs, a new fuel filter, and fuel line this weekend. Also sanded down and refinished most of the metal surrounding the engine

 

She's looking good! :thumbs:

Spark plugs made a big difference in how quickly it starts and how 'strong' the engine feels. Definitely smoother operation all around :firejumper:

I'm sure it's been said but get your self some wheel weights and chains for plowing snow, or you could load the tires. I enjoy plowing with my ford and am amazed how much snow it pushes. I have a 81 and 83 lgt 165. BE VERY CAREFUL..... this is an addiction and it starts by buying one gt then you have seven around the house  :smilewink:

Where did you find your wheel weights? Are there other brands that will fit?

Today was nothing compared to some parts of the country, but I sure had fun pushing snow!

Are you still in need of a cap for your hydro fluid reservoir? Here's a link that might help:

 

http://www.usplastic...parentcatid=838

 

I thought you might be able to replace your reservoir with one of these tanks. They offer some caps, but I'm not sure if they would work on your reservoir or not. I thought it might be easier to replace the whole tank and cap (you could buy a new tank and add a cap that was meant for it), than to try and find a cap for your tank. I'm not sure if these tanks are meant for oil though. Just a thought.

They also offer fittings that might be of help (to make the tank as close as possible in function to the original one), should you decide to make one of their tanks work (if you would even need any).

Thanks for the link, Gabriel. Unfortunately, it looks like the caps themselves are either too big or too small. Indeed, it would require putting a new complete reservoir in. I think I'll try to fix the cap or luck into one first, then consider a reservoir swap if needed.

 

.. stupid question:.. the hydro trans reservoir doesn't pressurize at all does it? I've been using it with the cracked cap and haven't noticed any real issue in doing so.

Have you tried New Holland for this cap? I found one at Messicks.

Or is it this one?

You can always call them to see. I have had them search dealers to find parts for me! Someone may have one on a shelf somewhere!

I don't think so. I think the reservoir is only for oil expansion.

Is ET103530 the correct part number? That's what I put in to find those results (at TractorHouse.com).
