Thank you very much this guidance is exactly what I need...
I "think" I'll open up top cover and see what's going on for starts. I have a top cover gasket set coming.
Not sure about the cyl and piston? I gather from Ultradog and Tim I should put new internals in it while its out which shouldn't be much trouble. Then there's the question of the new CNH neoprene vs leather ring? Any thought on that? I think I would go with the neoprene if I had to guess.
Next issue- taking inspection covers off the side- I understadn one of them has the PTO lever thru it. As I recall (I'm about 170 miles away from the tractor during the week) mine also has a Howard transmission shifter there too. Am I going to run into trouble with that? Does the PTO thingy just slide out or does something have to be disconn? Anybody know about Mr Howards shifter lever? I have pictures of this (cover)at home I'm pretty sure I'll see if I can post them later.
I really appreciate this.
There is also the usual working in a semi unheated barn in Maine in winter. Lots of fun.
