  1. We had the ac guy out to look at our mx135 and we figured since the 3588 only needs gas we might aswell refill it after 14 years or so. After some troubleshooting when it wasn't working we figuerd out that the thermostat does not get any power. These three wires runs from the heat regulator and thermostat down the left cab post and there are no where for them to plugin. Now where are they supposed to go? I do not have the complete wiring diagram and i can't find one for the ac stuff.

    IH 3588 a/c thermostat power wiring

    I got no power to the yellow wire from the lockout relay so i just ran a wire with a switch in between straight to the battery to engage the compressor clutch, need to change that one day. And it works, Horray! Thats a quality compressor. Thank you for the help

    IH 3588 a/c thermostat power wiring

    Thank you FarmallFan that' exactly what i needed. Yes i found the connector on the right side of the cab, now i'm getting power to the thermostat. Now i need to figure out why the compressor clutch is not getting power
  4. Hi i'm wondering how good the 86 series seats were, how comfortable they are and if they broke how hard are they to fix? As long as i can remember we have had a air suspension seat in our 3588, we have the original seat in our shop. This air suspension seat doesn't bolt up very well and i think it would be neat to have the original back in. Regards Patrik.

    As long as you don't use it as a Steiger then not really no. Make sure thou that it has never seen duals on the front axle and that the difflock has not been exstensivly used preferbly removed completly. Other than that it's the usual checks when buying same as 86/66.

    Pivot point play

    Hello I noticed today when discing a uneven field that our 3588 has a bit of play in one or both pivot bearings, about 1-2 cm (2/5"-4/5"). They have been replaced once before so it's a bit strange that it is needed agian. What is a good way to check the play in the workshop?

    Pivot point play

    I just put a jack under the pivot point and lifted it. A stupid question really. The transfer case part is sliding up and down, looks like the race is moving.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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?

    This was not a quick question

    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.

    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?
  22. Patrik

    Quick question

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

    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

    I'm at a loss

    It's straight and on the left.

    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!
