Re: Where to find part numbers 9/22/2014 9:57:03 AM   (Total replies: 1)


Click the upper left link that says “Go to Parts Catalog”.  Once it comes up, look up your machine.  Best to have your serial number handy, but it looks like there were no s/n breaks on the 722.

I think the head gasket is p/n 6512401, but double check it.

BTW - the Ford engine in your machine was used in early ...

Re: Repower needed for NH L175 - can anyone help? 9/2/2014 11:57:22 AM   (Total replies: 1)

As far as a repower goes, a Kubota V2203 is in the right HP / displacement range.  There are lots of these engines arounnd that have been pulled from old reefers.


Re: 743 Bucket bleed down 8/30/2014 6:00:58 AM   (Total replies: 1)
Bleed down is most likely worn cylinder piston seals. These are easy to get at the dealer or a hydraulic shop. This is a common problem, search the forum for other posts on this topic.

OM will have a manual that will help, just make sure your profile contains your e-mail address. That said, getting the control out is the worst part of the job. The control it self is pretty easy to change out the spool seals; nothing is going to fly out when you take the rear cover off. Make sure you have your serial number handy when you order the replacement seals. Good luck!!

The other concern is over time the leak is only get worse, not better.  I will let someone who has a 743 weigh in on the difficulty of pulling the control valve.  It sounds like you only have one spool leaking right now, but I would change the seals on all of them while I was at it.

I have had the control out of mine when I added the auxiliary hydraulic spool.  It looked like a daunting task when I started it, but it was not too bad.  These valves are ...

Greetings Mr. Bond,

How did the fuel system parts look that you serviced/replaced?  Were they dried out, coated in varnish, etc?

It doesn't sound like an ignition problem, but if you are even considering replacing the spark plugs, just replace them.  I am partial to platinum plugs.

The next thing I would look at is the carburetor.  Take it off, take it apart, and make sure that it is squeaky clean inside.  Blow out all of the passages, and use a ...

Laser cutters are truly awesome.  I deal with their capabilities at work on a daily basis, and it has revolutionised the way I design things.

Here is one of my home projects:

Building this thing without a laser would have sucked!!

Nice work on the drive flange, definitely the way to go rather than try to make the old one work.

Thanks for the detailed updates, keep them coming!!

Cheers - SR

Sure, no problem, I can do that.  Just go into your forum profile and add an e-mail address that I can send it to.

Cheers - SR
