  1. Potential engine faliure

    Hello I fear for the life of our 3588 because there is oil coming out of the joint on the exhaust manifold, not a huge amount but it coats the manifold and drizzles the filters and heatshield. It is not smoking as if it is burning oil, completely clear after 15 seconds or so after start up. Smokes a bit from the breather tube but that's normal. Only use it's seen this winter is moving it and some implements out of the way. Any theories? Our local mechanic is coming out to have a look at it just want to know what you guys think of it. And hopefully ease my stomach ache.

    Ok thank you everyone, i can rest easy agian as well as my wallet.
  3. About drinking raw milk

    Been drinking store milk all my life. Started working on a dairy farm where they drink milk from the tank for breakfast and lunch. First day drank it, the next had a very bad stomach for two days. Got back and drank it agian and nothing happend. If it was because of the milk or something else, no idea, i am raised on a farm with cattle so any bakteria from the cows i dout it.
  4. Quick question

    How much work would it be to change the o-rings/seals in the lift cylinder? We suspect it's leaking because the hitch only goes half way and won't pick up if you load it.
  5. Quick question

    Under the cab where there is this sliding grove on the lever were the pressed shearmetal shaft bolts on, moved it from the middle all the way to the right towards the front.
  6. Quick question

    15 years ago the rear end + gearbox was reabuilt, and this problem with the hitch arose. Now 5 minutes was all it took with a 13mm wrench to adjust the linkage and it is fixed! I thank you all for your time (wasted😉) but pete23 thank you very much!
  7. Quick question

    It will be truly amazing if it's ONLY in need of adjustment. The draft needed a bit of adjustment because it was pressed up hard agianst the lever on the draft shaft which made it hard to move into heavy and to stay in heavy.One thing that may not matter, when you move the position lever all the way down and into the narrow part it stops lowering. My father assures me that nothing was assembled incorrectly. This tractor will never see a plow agian and our cultivator is on the hitch hook so the pain of using draft control is easily avoided. I will get back with an update tomorrow or on friday.
  8. Quick question

    I was on about that previusly, but i looked inside and the piston has about 1 dm left of travel so i don't think they are. Besides the arms would not be "fully down" if they where on the wrong spline.
  9. Quick question

    I've removed the toplink mount and there is no leak from the lift cylinder (started the tractor), the draft linkage moves and does what it's suppose to. Is there a valve of some sort that could be causing my problem? Pilot relife valve, safety valve etc?
  10. Quick question

    This was not a quick question
  11. Quick question

    I really hope noone comes around and tells me that the bellcrank and rockshaft arms can only be assembled in one way, because i just thought that if it is you just take the arms off and twist the rock shaft until it's bottemd out.
  12. Quick question

    Update: The linkage on the outside moves freely. But i still have the same issue, i removed the fuel tank and opened the cover to seperated the linkage and it moved fine. It seems to be in the bowles of the rearend. Now the liftarm position lever comes forward when you force it into heavy. I need more help Edit: The draft control is now in heavy, the problem persists. 10 years ago this tractor was completely torn apart and that is when this problem started. Is the bellcrank on the rockshaft in the wrong place, would that be possible?
  13. Quick question

    The draft linkage moves to light but gets stuck halfway to heavy, the rest of way it just bends the arm.
  14. Quick question

    The draft lever is held in heavy by a steel wire to keep it in place, but it moves back and forth fine. I'll check if the linkage is ceased
  15. I'm at a loss

    As the title dictates I'm at a loss with our 3588, it sticks in 1st gear when the tractor is on in high, low or reverse. When in neutral or park it comes out, not "smooth" a tad bit rough. When the tractor is shut off it comes out the sameway in low, high, reverse, neutral or park. I have the TA, clutch and dump valve setup according to Farmall Doctor instructions, the transmission brake was assembled backwards with the lever pointing towards the front tire by the previus owner so that doesn't work. I'm thinking if the two balljoints are not parrallel, if that could cause the issue but then how did it work when brand new? I have no idea what the problem is, please help!
  16. I'm at a loss

    It's straight and on the left.
  17. I'm at a loss

    I have a hard time understanding how the transmission brake could affect how it shifts, at a stand still maybe but if you're shifting on the go it doesn't engage.

    Thought i'd share a few pictures of our two Ih tractors we have on our farm in southern Sweden.

    Why thank you, it's well kept. Has 13467 hours on it atm.

  22. Quality of life in the 3588

    Hello there Got two quality of life questions regarding our 3588. 1. The speed gear shifter is a bit heavy between 1st and 2nd and sometimes it even sticks and won't come out of 1st i've heard this either is a linkage problem or cabmounts. I've treid to adjust it to my best ability. So i'm wondering is there a way to compensate for bad cabmounts without changing them? 2. It about the fuel guage, we never use the seconde tank at the rear and since the guage shows the combined volume i was wondering if you could make the gauge show only the volume of the main tank?
  23. Quality of life in the 3588

    Done the adjustments and now it shifts very nice, you just have to look at the shifter for it to slide nicly in to gear. Thanks very much for the help
  24. Quality of life in the 3588

    I don't think any amount of adjustment can fix this.
  25. Quality of life in the 3588

    Very nice and helpful instructions Doc, i'll make these adjustment and see if it helps. The transmission brake however can't be done much about, tried to adjust it some time ago and it seems like the brake arm is split in two or something because the link arm just drops down.
