    Fuel Filter ?

    Filters should be installed before the electric pump to protect the pump.

    Using the TA Question

    Hyd TA is designed to be shifted hard and fast that's why 86 series TA shift handle was designed with the spring to put in gear fast but it wasn't designed for a brake on the road the low side clutches were put in to keep tractor from freewheeling like the old mechanicals did.

    MX200 problem

    If the fan drive assembly part number 255030a1 is bad the fan will not run fast enough to keep the engine cool .Use a photo tack to check fan speed when engine is hot. That assembly was used on early serial number tractors.

    When installing an electric fuel pump make sure you are getting one that provides 3 to 7 psi and no more or you will over power the float and needle valve and flood engine .

    Pumping hydraulic oil from tractor

    When I was younger and stupid used to pull pto run tractor nose in road ditch lift pto out . Ruptured 5th lumbar back surgery now I use a shop or truck crane. On the subject of draining rear ends, thirty seconds of cavitation can ruin a pump I'm not rich enough to take the chance for fifteen minutes less work.
  9. Pull the 3 pt top cover and pull the remote look for oil coming out of left front corner wheretop cover meets rear frame there's a Teflon seal ring there also check the flow coming down by the 3pt valve release remote lever and see if you have less oil if you do bad relief valve or oring in or on hitch valve. Also you may have blown the pump flange oring I always install a Teflon ring inside oring.

    756 Gasser Update

    The tractor is vapor locking that's why it runs fine when the fuel and engine are cool take the hood and side panels off to get rid of excessive engine heat. Check the exhaust manifold for cracks heat riser operation.
