  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. There was a change to the lube valve spool to help with this problem, especially in cold weather. There was a service bulletin issued. Unfortunately I don’t have access to those any longer
  16. You’re not going to have 540 pto rpm at idle. Only at rated engine rpm will you have 540 rpm. Speeds that you quoted sound normal
  17. The screened valve shown in the hydraulic filter looks to be the original style. They were thermostatically controlled to allow cold oil to be drawn through the screen then were supposed to close when the oil warmed up. Unfortunately they were prone to stick open allowing unfiltered oil to go through the entire system. There was a service bulletin issued quite a few years ago that recommend swapping the valve out to the earlier style that had just a spring and a disc. The bulletin also recommended running the motor at a faster idle for several minutes in cold weather before putting it to work. If the pph system had used a charge pump, it would have solved several problems. The piston pump doesn’t create much suction.
  18. Have to have hydraulic pressure for TA to do what you want. Take the inspection plate off on right side of TA housing where flywheel is located. Use a bar with a flat end on it and pry on the flywheel ring gear. You have good leverage there.
  19. I saw your post on the sheet metal problems. I sold several salvage 50 series to a local guy so you might give him a call. His name is Jeff Ewoldt and he works in the service dept at Ne. Pererbilt here in Grand Island, 308-382-1044
