  1. 20’-24’ disk thoughts

    I have a Krause a lot like Reichow7120 minus the rock flex. Does an excellent job. Bout all the 5488 2wd can handle in the spring if you let her go in as far she wants to.
  2. 826 pto issues

    I was using my 826 on the baler he other day and the pto started acting up. When you pulled the handle up to engage the pto it acted like it locked up solid and would spin the baler as it should, then it disengaged or started slipping or something, it would continue to spin, but had no power. if you pushed the handle back down to the point where it started to engage when you pulled up on the handle, it would start working again for a bit. If you just pulled the handle up and left it it would start, die off, then engage again, die off(or lose power), engage again and so on. Is this normal when the clutch pack wears out or is there something else going on. To me it is like it was starving for oil, but the level was within the working range on the dipstick. Thanks for your thought.
  3. 5488 questions

    My Dad's 5488 lost the hydraulic pump one fall and it completely lost all the brakes, then it sat in the shop all winter waiting for IH to find someone to. custom build the hydraulic pump to original specs as they weren't made anymore or at least weren't available. Do your research before you bite off more than you want to tackle. By the way, I run a 7040 and a 5488. It wouldn't be too hard for the 7040 hydraulic system to outperform the 88. The AC was way ahead of anything IH was making at the time at least with the transmission and hydraulic system. Its my understanding that the two tractors use a very similar type pump, at least the flow control at the remotes work in much the same manner, just I can still control the 7040 from inside the cab. If I want to slow the flow down on the 5488 I have to crawl underneath the tractor with a screw driver and shove the control all the way to the slow side, then I can adjust it faster as needed with the cab control.
  4. 8920 & 1250 16 row

    My uncle and now my cousin run a 4700 through unworked bean stubble, I run a DMI tigermate after NH3 with colters in front of the knives. The colters seem to help cut the mat of stubble up a little, but I have run my DMI on untouched bean stubble as well. Both units have similar three bar coil tine horrows. If I stand mine straight up it will start to bunch bean stubble, lay it down one pin hole the stubble flows right through and levels real nice. The DMI has heavier springs and will penetrate better, but will pull a little harder than the 4300 Last year my tractor was too big for the 32' FC so I ran it almost 8 mph. Got a 44' and pulled it about 6mph. Works great as far as I am concerned. We usually don't encounter dry hard soils in the spring though. Usually finding a window to get them dried out is our problem.
  5. 5488 remote adjustment

    Got a chance to look into the situation. After reading another post on the same issue, I figured my problem really wasn't in the detent adjustment, so I removed the plastic top of the console. The arm on the number three valve that is welded to the cross shaft that the actual remote lever slides onto was wore to a slot almost twice the size of the original hole, and the short stem that fits through that hole is almost cut off. I welded the hole back shut and drilled a new hole, but the little threaded piece that screws on the rod and fits through the hole will need to be replaced. The other two I just needed to loosen the jamb nut and turn the rod until the levers lined back up with the lockout rod that slides through the handles. Now they will lock into all three positions. Not too bad a job, but might have been a little upsetting if my cab foam was in better shape as there were a couple of screws that were buried under the trim foam. Darren
  6. 5488 remote adjustment

    Thanks, That was where I was figuring the adjustment was, but wanted to check before I did something I regretted. Just curious, why do I not use the motor run valve to run the motor, does it pretty much kill the function of the other two, or is there another reason? Darren
  7. 5488 remote adjustment

    I am working on getting my 5488 ready to use on a planter. My number one and two hydraulic remotes do not stay in the float position which is a particular problem since the number one remote will need to run a fan motor. Where is the adjustment to fix this problem? Thanks in advance. Darren
  8. 826 injector pump rebuild??

    After 9500 hours a spring broke internally and tore up the inside, suppose dirty fuel could have created conditions necessary to cause the spring to break too. The guy who did the work also commented that some one was working on adapting a roamaster pump to that engine. Hopefully this one will make another 5000 hours or so and I won't have to worry about it.
  9. 826 injector pump rebuild??

    After some looking around and not really finding anything I wanted to replace my 826 with, I went ahead and had the injector pump rebuilt. The old one was completely trashed, the tech couldn't believe the tractor could even run, but in order to rebuild it he took a couple of old pumps apart to get enough parts to fix mine since new parts are no longer available. Is this true, and does this spell the end for this engine down the road? Just curious is all. Thanks for any replies.
  10. 4200 CIH Soil Finisher

    My dad had a 21' 4200 with the five bar spike tooth harrow. We maybe pulled it around 6mph. It seemed like if you ran the disk gangs deep enough to cut the bean stubble it woud ridge pretty bad. If you picked the gangs up so as not to ridge, then the stubble plugged up in the harrow. I am still trying to level some of the ridges that tool left back out. It works really good to fill in dead furrows. I took the advice left on one of these forums and bought a newer field cultivator and haven't had any trouble getting the residue through, so I sold the 4200. Don't really want another one.
  11. 826 advice

    Thanks for the input, the pump is going to need more than one seal to fix it as it is leaking fuel externally as well, i think around the shutoff. I kind of figured the injectors should probably be done at the same time the injector pump is done. Its still a straight solid old tractor, just reached the end of the road for this go around. The biggest problem is I don't use it under a load very often or at WOT so it gets pretty gunked up from wet stacking. Will this lead to problems or more just an annoyance? Was looking at a 885 case ih, but it sold, from other posts I gather the diesel engine in that tractor is a smaller version nuess. Does it have the same issues with wet stacking? Is there a heavy duty clutch option for the 826, that is one part that gets a lot of use, the last one didn't last very long. Thanks again, Darren
  12. 826 advice

    I'm new to posting, but not to reading, but now I need the voice of some experience. Pulled the dipstick the other morning on my 826 and it was at the add mark, but didn't plan on running it that long so I just did what I needed to and shut it off. Came back later that afternoon and pulled the dipstick to add oil, and the level was at least an inch above the full mark and the oil was quickly dripping off. I am pretty sure it is fuel as I started it the other day and the oil is still coal black, but with the outside temp at 10 deg. F still wants to freely run off the dipstick. unscrewed the drain and didn't see any water either. It has about 9500 hours, my Dad put close to 5000 of those on w/o a wrench on the motor. It uses quite a bit of oil, is notorious for wet stacking which has been getting worse, but still no trouble starting if you know how to use the advance. The clutch is at the end of its adjustment, and won't completely release in the high side of the torque. I know this engine is a good one, but I am not sure it is worth putting the kind of coin into to get it back up and running. My Dad thinks I should just rebuild the injector pump, and replace the clutch and see how far it goes. I'm thnking, see if someone would be interested in for a restore project, take all the money and find something different. What I really need it for is running an auger in the fall, although I do grind feed and use it on haying equipment, but I have other options for that work. If I do overhaul it how much does something like that cost, and is it going to require someone with some exerience with that motor? From other posts it looks like the motor will have to be pulled so new bearings can be machined to fit. Any advice or insight would be apreciated. Right now I parked it in the back of the shed so I won't have to move it anymore. Thanks in advance.
