  1. We sold and installed 3 spragless TAs back in the day. The first one worked very well. Unfortunately the other two didn’t. The problem with them was when shifting the TA under load, the tractor would almost come to a stop before it would abruptly engage. HyCap tried machining a bevel onto the TA spool in the MCV. That did improve shifting on one tractor but not the other. We didn’t sell anymore after that. Had customers ask about them from time to time but had to inform them about our experiences.
  2. There is a rubber hose in the rear compartment near the ring gear that goes from the suction tube upward to a fitting coming down from top cover. I have seen that hose split above the oil level and cause oil to aerate. If you replace be sure and use oil resistant hose. TheItem 17 on attached parts illustration
  3. Yes the hydraulic hose will cause horsepower loss. I had a customer’s 986 that I dynoed with a hydraulic hose then put on the OEM hose. It gained 15 horsepower just changing to the correct hose. Do not use heater hose. Just put on the correct one.
  4. Need to replace the hydraulic hose from final filter to pump inlet. OEM hose is much softer and will dampen pulsations from gear pump. Hydraulic hose will cause loss of horsepower
  5. But what do you do when the beans are dry and the stems are green? Bean fields around here are rapidly changing from green to yellow so leaves will drop soon. Some guys will be harvesting in two weeks or less. The moisture level will be low. The stems will be tough. Ever since the seed companies bred the plants to stand better and not lodge we have had to adjust for this. I agree that it would be nice to wait but the moisture level in the beans indicate otherwise
  6. Removing them will help keep the green material moving through the concave area better.
  7. The bulletin you referred to recommends that you remove the short straight bars that are located by themselves. They are only needed in harder threshing small grains. They actually retard the flow of material in corn and beans.
  8. As a side note, if the hose to the pump is a hydraulic hose, you need to replace it with an original equipment hose. It is a much softer hose that absorbs the fuel pulsations from the gear pump. Hydraulic hose will cause power loss.
  9. SDman explains it very well in a prior post https://www.redpowermagazine.com/forums/topic/113208-magnum-hydraulics-service-bulletin/
  10. No snow in the Grand Island area but 5-6” of rain reported.
  11. Not correct. Original equipment was the 301. There are numbers stamped on a machined pad on the side of the block near the distributor.
  12. The original cap can be removed too fast causing hot gasoline to douse the person removing the cap and possibly get burned. The new cap has an extra tang to prevent fast removal. Since it is a safety issue, the program will never expire.
  13. This is pretty easy to do. The 3088 was only offered as open center. You don’t need a different end plate. The numbers that referred to are identified in the attached parts picture. On part #7, remote valve end plate, disconnect hydraulic line #22. Hook up your inlet hose from your loader valve to the fitting on #7 end plate. Hook up your loader valve return to hydraulic line #22. That is all that needs to be done. One thing that you need to be aware of is that if any foreign matter comes from the loader, it could possibly damage the MCV pump. I have hooked up quite a few like this over the years and haven’t had any problems. Also if you disconnect loader valve from the tractor you absolutely need to hook the pipe back up to end plate as there is constant flow in that circuit
  14. I see a fender mount radio in the first picture. The unit mounted to the generator is a suppressor that is someone’s attempt to cut down static on the radio. No clue about the other item.
  15. Every 1400 series combine that I have seen has a water shut off in the cab located on the left side near the door latch. All you can see is the knob. Item 8 in the attached drawing
  16. I am currently running a Magnum 315 CVT on a grain cart. I just looked and it is definitely an electronically controlled fan. It doesn’t roar at all. There is a hub on the front of the fan with a wire harness. At one time Case came with different software to address the noise issue. Your dealer should be aware of it.
  17. There was a 196 power unit also. It was made up by Whites Inc out of Texas. We probably sold 50 of them for shallow irrigation wells. The engine was bulletproof. The radiator was the weak link. The motor was mounted solid to the frame so vibration was transferred to the radiator.
  18. I’m thinking that the intravance in the injection pump is not advancing the timing like it should.
  19. Yes. Just have to get a connector and a couple of wire terminals
  20. We fought this problem a lot when we started using the flared bin extensions. Problem solved by using a diaphragm style sensor. https://www.radwell.com/Shop?source=GoogleShopping&IgnoreRedirect=true&ItemSingleId=44653713&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&adpos=&scid=scplp44653713&sc_intid=44653713&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI87Lt-d7r6wIVVyCtBh3kcwdqEAQYDiABEgKNhvD_BwE
  21. Use a small pair of snap ring pliers. Put both points of the pliers in one of the flex ring holes and work it over one of the pins as you stretch the ring. Have done many this way.
