  1. Our neighbors have a 3288 with a D-414 combine engine repower. It has a 1066 muffler on top. Looks fine.
  2. Hello, I have a problem hopefully someone has some knowledge on. Was using our 5488 and noticed a hydraulic leak coming from the top of the pump from a square cover on the top aft part of the pump. I realized then the pump seemed to be staying on high pressure. I installed a gauge on the pump output tee and verified that with no demand the pump stayed on with 2500 psi. 350 psi would be normal and in the standby position. I removed the .020 bleed orifice and found it dirty, cleaned it and retried it with same results. All the aux valves are in neutral. Everything works fine, all the aux valves and the hitch. I removed the signal line from the pump and tried that for kicks and it didn’t make a difference. Not sure if the pump needs low pressure on the signal to make it go to standby or not. Would a leak in the pump output to hitch cause this, or is it as simple as a bad pump and compensator block. Thanks for any ideas.
  3. Here are some pics of mine. Always wanted one since I was a 10 years old when I first saw one at the dealer when my grandpa would take me back in 85. I have been looking for several years to find a decent one. Several have slipped through my fingers, and saw a lot of iffy ones too. Finally found this one from a fellow forum member, it checked most the boxes. It has the inline pump, big front axle, 42 inch rubber and rack of weights. It needed new interior and I replaced the front axle pivot pin and bushing. Later this year I will give it a new coat of paint. Brian

    Also have a 5088, 6500 hours. Absolutely love it. I like it so much I just bought a 5488. I think the 50 series are good buys, I know they have their detractors but bang for the buck I think they can’t be beat. Just make sure it has a working Sentry and does what it’s supposed to do. As in anything that is almost 40 years old it will break but it’s all fixable. My two cents.
  5. I agree that would be a easy $15,000 tractor here in the East. I wish these 5-7 thousand dollar 50 series were here in NY. Beat up old 06 and 56 series are bringing more than that at auction here.
  6. Yes neukm I would be interested in talking to you about it. Sounds like what I’m looking for.
  7. I’ll walk away from this one and keep looking.
  8. Thanks for the help. I just wanted to make sure. Brian
  9. Here is a pic of what the engine looks like. Wasn’t sure if the the cooler was different between the inline pump engine or the rotary pump B series engines.
  10. I have a quick question. We are looking at maybe purchasing a 5488. The owner has sent us some pics of the engine. I don’t see any signs of a intercooler. We’re the early ones made without one? Thanks.
