  1. Farmall 806D Rear Remote Issues

    I have been experiencing issues with the rear remotes on my 806. It is equipped with dual remotes, and the leftmost remote (connected with JIC fittings under the seat) is finicky. It will raise an implement sometimes when the lever is inched and not pulled fully back. Otherwise it seems to not allow enough pressure to flow to the cylinder. Any ideas on what this is before I tear into it? I'm thinking maybe a leaking oring in the valve block, but was hoping someone had experience with a similar problem.

    We paid just under $200 through CNH last summer and about $20 on a cover gasket. It is helpful to use 7/16" threaded rods to guide the cover back into place (or 6" bolts with heads cut off). Might be worthwhile to change the return and supply line orings on the cover as you have to disconnect the lines anyways. Nice to have help or an engine crane as the cover is cast and weighs probably 150lbs.

    Agree with trying a new coil.

    The pilot valve above the TA housing.

    Thanks for all the replies. I finally resolved the problem by changing the flow divider valve and getting the air out of the system by turning lock to lock. After doing figure eights for half an hour, it steered great in both directions.
  6. 806 Hard Power Steering While Turning Right

    Well, I have replaced the hand pump with a NOS one, with no luck. I also pulled apart the flow divider valve above the MCV valve, cleaned it, and replaced the O-rings. I am still experiencing the same issues. The tractor does sound like it may be sucking air when turning the wheel at some points. I have over serviced the hydraulic resorvoir by 3-5 gallons. I also tried removing the plug under the MCV and removing and cleaning the relief valve. Any other ideas?

    I don't suppose you would have part numbers on that, would you? Thanks for all the replies. I ordered a seal kit for the hand pump, figured it wouldn't hurt to tear it apart and clean it as it loses its prime and won't turn with the tractor off.
  8. I am experiencing a power steering issue with my 806. The tractor will easily steer left, but turns right hard. The tractor has brand new fluid and filters. The problem happened after running an implement with the rear remotes, so I was thinking possibly got stirred up in the hydraulic system and caused a strainer or valve to stick. Anyone else had a similar problem?
  9. Farmall 806 Diesel Oil Pressure

    These numbers are with the engine warm. I was wondering if I should pull apart the oil relief valve and clean it. The tractor had been sitting a while. The hydraulic fluid was mainly water, and I drained the rear end and differentials, and put in fresh Hytran. Next on the list is fuel and air filters, which are on order. Somebody converted it to a single spin on fuel filter.

    That's good then. Do you know if the book gives a lower idle limit?

    Yes. I put a brand new SW gauge on it. The service manual I have didn't give a spec. Maybe I should look at getting a different manual.
  12. Farmall 806 Diesel Oil Pressure

    I just picked up an 806D a couple weeks ago, and was wondering what typical oil pressure is. After new filters and 15w40, I am getting roughly 10psi at low idle, 20 psi at high idle, and 40psi full throttle (it has a mechanical gauge. Is this in the ballpark? Thanks, Richard
