I need to take the front mounted hydraulic pump off to fix a leaky gasket. I started on it but can't get it off. Anyone had instructions or information for removing it? Thanks.

Bill Bechthold in California does have a nice 55 and so does Landis Zimmerman. I'm located in Oregon, and have a friend with a couple, will find out if he has extra parts.

Do any of you have parts tractors or tractors you would sell? If so please let me know where you are. My neighbor has a 55 that needs a lot of work and I am trying to figure out if it's a project worth starting. Thank you. I'm in California

Get the numbers off of the injectors. I doubt if the Mazda ones will work as an assembles as the Hercules are a pintle type.

Thanks Steve. Yes, there are lots of good folks out there. In fact most of them are. The news always focuses on the bad things going on.

Thanks Blake.

Given the site a bit of a hammering over the weekend, looking through the Tech stuff - folk are really helpful, aren't they?...... It restores a person'e faith in human nature when there's so much other crap going on in the world!

Keep up the good work

Thanks Jack.

I've since been in touch with Landis Zimmerman and am going to go with a rebuilt Starter Motor which will leave me with a working crawler and a pile of Starter bits! If I can obtain a spare armature, I will overhaul the old item and hang on to it as a spare - good old Sod's Law dictates that 'when you have back-up, you won't need it". I now know what to look for.

The originals on ours were Delco 1109602. Armature is Delco 1888751.

You may get some hits looking for these numbers.

There was also an Autolite starter, but I don't have the number for it. Might have been fitted to the IXK3 on earlier OC3's or Generals. Probably had a bit lower power output, for the lower HP engine.

A couple of possible alternate starters: 1109609 and 1109454. I haven't used either, but they were crossed in some literature. I was told  by an Oliver serviceman there was one with 4 field coils - more powerful - but have no numbers for that one.

I've gone to 12 v. Another knowledgeable tech said the starters lasted longer in 12 v service, because they didn't have to work so hard - as long as the engine starts reliably. Prolonged operation trying to get a balky one going can fry the 6 v units.

I've had some success with London Generator in London Ontario Canada. Got an armature from them must be 20 years ago, and it's still in service.

If worst comes to worst, I may have a core here that they could rebuild.

Good luck; keep us posted.

Almost any rings can be purchased from Hastings Piston Ring's site.

I am told that there is a Mazda diesel engine around which runs injectors which will fit my Cletrac. Does anyone know which ones they are. I am also looking to rebuild my motor but don't know about parts availability before I start. Anyone tell me about supply of parts or alternative brands for rings etc
