  1. I got ahold of Miller diesel and they are going to get one prepared for an exchange so I can get back going. Thanks for the recommendation they are easy to work with so far.
  2. That hose was replaced years ago with a hydraulic hose in a pinch. I will order the correct hose and put it on when I take the pump off.
  3. It had been a long time since I have updated on the progress of my 826 and it is still a work in progress. Just wanted to update that I have had it running and have it back into somewhat working form with still a lot of work left. After having it running i had to pull the plug on the MCV valve to make it function but I drove it and the the TA worked as it should. After a few minutes though it soon lost it’s prime and lost steering and TA. I pulled the MCV valve off and put a new hy capacity MCV pump and rebuilt and sealed the MCV valve but haven’t started it yet. I still need to make cables for the battery’s and order a new harness from brillmans. Because all of that was destroyed by the elements. It’s coming together slowly but surely.
  4. Good evening everybody. I am looking for recommendations for a pump shop for my Ambac 100 pump off our 1086. While finishing planting beans we had issues where the governor wouldn’t respond then would pick up RPM. Then soon after it started leaking fuel from the weep hole on the distributer head. I am in Maryland and was wondering if somebody in PA or nearby had a pump shop they would recommend to send it to. Or if somebody had a location to purchase an already refurbished pump and exchange this one for a core. We will need the tractor again around the end of June for planting wheat beans so it needs to be somewhat of a quick turn around. Thank you
  5. There is a pressure transducer in one of the steering lines that senses when you hit the wheel that goes bad often. On the bigger sprayers 3330 per say it is right behind the cab on top of the autosteer block. The part number is the same as the big sprayers #47626975 but sit down when you call because the list is $1,060. The old one is a round block with three wires and the new is a square block.
  6. There surely has to be somebody around that has a silver bullet for the hydraulics on those planters as many of them as they're are around.
  7. I still have the planter. Last year I rebuilt one of the marker cylinders because it was bypassing internally and it helped to get through the season. If you search online you can find where some people have "deleted" the master cylinder and gone to a flow divider. It seems like it is a common issue with these front fold 7200's.
  8. Just had block, head, and crank returned back to me from the machine shop a few days ago. Block pressure tested fine which was great news. Had to redo the sleeve O-ring area on a few of the cylinder holes. Had new injector cups put into the head and the head and valves cleaned up. I was able to order clevite cylinder kits with sleeves, pistons, and bearings for the D358 so I was happy about having their hard parts instead of reliance. Will have to source the gaskets from CNH.
  9. Had time to split the tractor and pull the engine out. Stripped all the accessory's off and pulled the crank out to get the pistons knocked out. Worked good having the crank out to hammer the pistons and sleeves out. Ended up having only one stuck bad, with it ending up coming out with the sleeve. Took and cut that sleeve with a grinder and put it in a press to split it in half off of the piston. Cam looked perfect but crank did have some spots where there was some rust/grime. 75% of the crank looked great. Block, crank, and head are all being sent to Spring Garden Repair Machine Shop in Lancaster County PA to be looked over. Hoping the block does not end up being cracked when pressure tested.
  10. Update: Removed the pan and pulled the caps off all the rods. Could only manage to get two pistons removed because the others still would not move well enough to get crank in correct orientation to remove other rods. Pistons 3 & 4 that where removed looked great with not much scuffing on the skirts or any funny business. The rod crank journals looked perfect and the bearings had little wear. The bad news is i did find a crack in sleeve #5 when trying to remove the rod. I have quickly came to the conclusion that the tractor will need to be split to remove the block and pressure check it and clean the scale. Would hate to do all the work and get it in-framed to only have the block be cracked from sitting outside with the potential of water inside. Have the head power washed off and planning on sending it off to be checked over and have new injector cups and freeze plugs installed.
  11. I am getting to that point. I figure she didn't become stuck in a day so she isn't going to become unstuck in a day. Hopefully the penetrating fluid works its way down around the rings and helps out.
  12. There was a lot of condensation under the valve cover. Still haven't had any luck getting everything moving. Pretty good size bar on the ring gear rocking back and fourth isn't cutting it yet.
  13. Bought this 826 from my neighbor It was his main tractor. SN#2510148U016485 It had been sitting outside for 10-15+ years. Gentleman quit farming and parked tractor outside and let it sit. Originally had bucket over exhaust but it developed a hole in it allowing water and dirt to go down into exhaust. Water was in the oil when I drained it but I am not sure if it was leaking past the liner o rings or just rain getting past the rings into the base. Either way going to inframe engine. Engine would not turn over at all. Surprisingly everything came apart nicely and wasn't to terribly rusty on the inside. Had to purchase another coolant manifold because the original had a hole in it. To the tune of $350 used..... Have PB Blaster and CNH penetrating fluid sitting in the cylinders now to try and get it to move. Still need to remove base and get pistons out. The tractor was missing the panels that have the international emblem on them and also the small panels behind them towards the rear of the tractor. With help from a friend from Ohio looking for them in junk yards we have found a clean straight set. Looking forward to her revival.
  14. I don't see a limit switch on the master cylinder. The main frame isn't level in the center and Is causeing the center two rows to have depth control issues.
  15. This is a flex model with the hinge point in the center. When raising all the way up the frame is level. When you let it down though the center part of the frame doesn't seem to come down far enough and it stops. The end of the frame continues down to where they should be running.
