  1. Mx110 hyd noise

    Got an eye on it yesterday. It doesn't sound like cavitation, but the loader shudders as it raises, kinda like it has a little air in the system. Also when the steering is up against the stop, it makes the same chatter. He held grapple at the end of its stroke, and I could see the pressure hose to the loader joystick valves really jerking. I don't know really anything about these newer hyd pumps/systems.
  2. Mx110 hyd noise

    Neighbors mx110 makes kind of a E-E-E chatter when he uses the loader to raise or roll bucket back. Makes same noise when deadheading a remote. Steering and trans work done. Hyd filter had 150 hrs on it but changed it again anyway. Cut it open and it didn't have any metal in it. When it is making the noise, the large line going from filter to remotes vibrates. It has joystick for loader. Is there a relief valve or something that may be sticking? Has close to 12k hrs on it. Any ideas? thanks, Rob
  3. 7120 no tach or gear indicator

    Sensor is hooked up and no broken wires up to where they enter the harness, but I haven't pulled it out yet. Trying to finish corn harvest, so as long as the tractor works we're going. Got around 100 acres left and last 70 have to haul up a steep hill on a dirt trail 2 hoppers worth at a time. Hope to be done by sometime Tuesday. Then have some stalks to bale for bedding and we're trying to get a machine shed up before full blown winter gets here. I'll let you know what I find
  4. 7120 no tach or gear indicator

    My 93 7120s tach stopped working this morning. First couple loads on the grain cart it was fine, then last one the tach just reads 0. Mph seems to work, but it won't put up a gear on the screen. Tractor works fine otherwise. The tach sensor is on the top of the pump drive correct? Is there a way to check it or just replace and hope that's It? Thanks, Rob

    Forgot about checking high idle, and my wife runs combine, so after broke both bolts holding right side chaffer rail, I checked. Someone had high idle no load at 2800! I adjusted throttle stop screw back to 2510 wot, idle at 1000+ or -. Hope this helps my sieve problems. Have about 300 acres of corn to go, so we'll see
  7. Rotor speed on corn

    I didn't know how far to drop concaves, there is a space between cage and concaves now. Cobs are mostly whole but chopper gets a few. I'll slow rotor more and possibly drop concave. Chaffer is around 1/2", and shoe is a little less. Chaffer could be closed a little, getting a few pieces of trash too. Have heard that running rotor too slow grinds also because cobs can't get out quick enough
  8. Rotor speed on corn

    What do you guys run for rotor speed on corn? Using a 2388, at 5 mph, 14% and 125 bu corn, rotor at 370 and concave at 4 plus, I am still grinding more than I'd like. I know it's dry and that may be most of the problem. It's going in a bin and the few loads that I hauled to elevator didn't have any dockage. Just curious on what everyone thinks.
  9. Hired Grain Haulers

    My wife is the combine operator while I haul, she's afraid to drive the semi unless its in low gear when I'm picking up round bales. Took a few years, but she will dump on the go onto the cart now! She did say she'd drive the 66 f600 silage truck if she had to, but dad helped another year. Sons got 1 more year of votech then plans to come back.
  10. corn is late , really late

    We've had 6+ inches of rain since Sept 15 and had over 5 in august after a mostly dry june/July. I thought it would be a tough harvest but hasn't been bad. Finished chopping Sept 29 and started beans Oct 5. Only had to leave a 50 ft square in one field so far out of 380 acres. Still have about 320 to go so might find mud yet. Weather supposed to be pretty good next week after a few showers this weekend
  11. 2388 cleaning fan belt

    Little Red, you were absolutely correct! The pulley hub was loose on shaft and hub was also worn at snap ring area and washer area behind hub, allowing it to move too far to the left. Lower sheaves are worn bad in spacer holes as well as where belt rides. Found parts 2 hrs away, my better half (aka the combine driver) should be back soon. Should have everything back together to finish the last 10 acres of the first field. Thanks a lot! The members on here are a wealth of info!!
  12. 2388 cleaning fan belt

    I'll check drive pulleys for movement. I pulled driven pulley off fan shaft and can see a lot of wear and rust on 2/3 of pulley. Unfortunately it's been outside mostly since 2012, but in process of building a storage shed, should be done sometime after harvest so it can be under a roof. I'm thinking problem is driven pulleys, waiting for parts man to call back
  13. 2388 cleaning fan belt

    Hi all, started beans and everything working good, except ate 2 cleaning fan belts in 2 days. With fan speed set on lowest speed, the new belt was very loose until I set speed up. I wonder if I have wrong belt, also tonight I looked closer, and inside ahead looks worn around spring loaded bolts? Is there bushings there? Maybe need new sheaves? At first with new belt, could get 1050 to 1100 with fan speed maxed out, but as day went on, sample got more trash in it and speed went down to low to mid 900s until belt broke. Any suggestions? Thanks, Robert

    Yup, lower sieve looked fine when we got top one out. Just started on beans tonight, I'll take a better look at everything in the morning, but seemed to work ok, no odd noises
