  1. Convincing dad not to switch oil!

    we run nothing but the cheapest oil in everything 303 or whatever is cheap 8000 hours on the tv140 hydro no problems 7000 hours on the mc135 power shift no problems not to mention the older tractors and skid steers. NEVER IN 25+ years of mechanic work have I seen first hand the oil at fault. If it gets water in change it. change filters at least once a year and quit worrying.

    966/986 or bigger definitely wins hands down as the easiest and cheapest to work on.
  3. I just completed a full mechanical clutch linkage conversion on an mfwd cx90. Pedal effort is reduced by 50% and no more expensive master and slave cylinders to buy. Would be willing to do the components as a kit for anyone interested. Eddie Eron 715 533 4701
  4. Building a Sentry Module

    Like I said in my original post..." The sentry's biggest stupidity is the fact that it locks in two gears at once EVERY time you make a shift. It has to sense oil pressure on the engaging clutch BEFORE it will let go of the disengaging pack. " Thus it ALWAYS locks into two gears at once every time it makes a shift. I used a single relay with the even gears wired to the normally closed side and the odd gears wired to the normally open side. This way it cannot be in two gears at once because the relay cannot power both solenoids at once. That is all you really need. The only timing function in the sentry is it locks out the trans if the shift happens faster than 1 second or takes longer than 3 seconds. If you want some form of "safety circuit" then that is up to you.

    That is NOT how it worked originally. But you are on the right track.

    Ahh the "Sentry" Biggest POS in the history of tractors... YES crap CAN THAT THING!!! I did a 5088 25 years ago and its still going on the same relay and trans clutch packs almost 10,000 hours later. The sentry's biggest stupidity is the fact that it locks in two gears at once EVERY time you make a shift. It has to sense oil pressure on the engaging clutch BEFORE it will let go of the disengaging pack. Just wire up a single relay using one NO contact for one clutch and the NC contact for the other. I used a 30 amp bosch relay from a chevy truck. I did not use a timer at all. let go of one solenoid and grab the other one that's all you need to do. There will be a slight lag in the shift at low engine rpm and especially with cold oil but that's about it.

    All valid points you bring up, thanks for your insights.

    You are about 3 1/2 hours west of me I might be interested in talking 715 533 4701 Eddie

    After some digging on the CIH parts net You are correct so I will be building my own transfer cuz I am not going to give Leahman's $4500 for one of theirs!!!!!

    nope but neither did the coleman or early elwood the used a 14,000lb FWD axle

    Rpm coming out of the transfer case is too low to drive a hyd pump efficiently but a good idea in principle.
  12. 966 MFWD INFO

    Agreed That's why I want to use a truck axle

    Thanks for your honest answer. I have a full machine shop and do not want to spend 10 grand on parts. The 2+2 transfer case is $400 from a local salvage yard. A truck axle can be had for $500 tires and wheels another $500 the rest I can make myself. Less than $2000 + about 40-60 hours and I will have a complete setup. It will be a nice winter project!!!

    I don't care about the disengaging mechanism we have been running an mc 135 locked in 4wd for 5+ years with no issues all gravel or off road use on the farm. I don't care about resale value or collector value either. What I am interested in is gear ratios. Coleman and the FWD axle fronts are single reduction. What transfer gears and axle ratio work with what tire size? I was hoping for some help with that.

    it will not get roaded on the farm
