    Re: Free at last

    Re: Blue Antifreeze

    Re: Case IH 1056xl

    It could be that the drive the cable inserts into has stripped (damaged) or the dial unit/meter is damaged. Our 956 dial started bouncing on different speeds and evetually ceased altogether.

    Re: IH 2500 / 574 questions

    As Agrimax suggested remove the sump and you might see what is going on. We had a 674 years ago that let coolant into the sump. The o rings had failed.

    Re: New Holland to Manitou hitch

    I guess one would be to buy a manitou headstock and weld on brackets that fit your digger. Could be an issue with some insurance companies perhaps?
