I got the rebuilt injectors installed today. Started right up, after air was bled out it quit smoking and ran very nice. Shut it down and let it sit for 15 minutes, engine rolled over half a dozen revs and fired right up, very pleased. Now onto clutch problem, but that will have to wait for warm weather. Jim

Still on the hunt for a set of factory steel wheels for this tractor. Have advertised in several places and have received several responses from people who have wheels off an L they want to sell, I turn them down for the most part not knowing if the axle sizes are the same from the L to the LA, knowing the wheels part numbers are the same for the LA and the 500.
Can anyone answer the question on axle sizes being the same on the L and the LA, if they're the same I would put a set of L wheels on it, and only a perfectionist would cry foul. I don't want to upset anyone, I just don't care for the amish steel wheels presently on it. Jim

I finally found a set of wheels just have to get them home. Now I'm working on fixing the clutch. The door into the building wasn't big enough for my A frame to go thru so I'm forced to do it outside, so I set up a canopy over the tractor. Crude but it works to keep me dry and the sun off my balding head. Jim

Years ago my oldest son wanted to work on a tractor of his own, si I gave him an F-20. One day I came home from work and he and his younger brother had pulled it up by the shed and set up an open sided tent over it that I use at the show, already had the head off and were working on getting the pistons out. That same sun bakes my skull also, straw hats became part of my wardrobe years ago but nothing beats an open sided tent for shade and breeze.

Well I got everything set and got the 500 split today and the clutch out. Then I found what I wasn't expecting, a big crack in the pressure plate. The clutch disk looks good, but won't know until I measure it.
Now on the hunt for a pressure plate. Jim

Is there a visible part number on that plate? I would think it may have been the same as used well into the 900 series production, but I may be wrong.

It maybe cloudy and trying to rain her today, but the sun is shining on me today. 1 phone call and the clutch parts are located and will be on their way tomorrow or Wednesday, y hanks Don. Then the work starts, putting it back together, Cory you free to get your hands dirty when the parts arrive. Jim

Before you put it back together, check the bushing in the imput shaft going into the transmission. One is the imput shaft of the transmission and the other is the live shaft the drives the PTO and hyd.
