    is she on 12v?
    Yep 12v now, but wondering if the fuel gauge is still 6v... At any rate when you hook the sender to the gauge, it buries the needle all the way left.

    Lots of good info Soundguy, you've done enough of those old Fords, you could probably do one in your sleep. I remembered the point gap and plug gap, but didn't know the firing order is different than the old IH and Case tractors. Neighbor had an SC Case and he could take four fingers on the plugs when it was running and kill it dead, hurt just to watch him do that.

    OK, parts on order. Some from Wegners and some from Tractor Parts Express. The picture of Wegners aftermarket manifold looked dead on. We will see. Soundguy mentioned that all "new" manifolds are the same thing now, fitting the 801 series better than the 800 series. I will post back and let you know how it goes.

    Was going to order parts for the PTO bearing replacement and saw there were two shaft seal sleeves on tractor parts express. My parts book is at the lake 300 miles away.

    TPE shows 310087 and 9N73538 sleeves. Cheap enough to get both, but can anyone look in their parts book to see which shaft sleeve I need? Thanks! Chris
