  1. Thanks for sharing the videos. Nice to see the W4 and 650 plowing. I spent most of one summer in the mid 1960s driving an IH 660 summer fallowing in Southern Alberta.
  2. I was watching a YouTube video on the new John Deere series of tractors and one of the features of the Europe built models there was an auxiliary hydraulic reservoir on the right rear axle and the purpose was to hold additional hydraulic oil for use of a dump wagon/cart that are very popular in Europe. So possibly your 844 being a European model that is the reason for the auxiliary tank.
  3. I forgot to mention the test as told to my Dad many years ago by an experienced IH mechanic when we had a 434 doing the same thing, is to put an implement on the 3pt, lift it up and close the Isolator valve and if the implement doesn't slowly lower then the problem is not the lift cylinder O-rings. We never fixed this tractor as it was used for loader work and in the winter it would have a back blade on the 3pt.
  4. Hi, I looked in my Service Manual, read the attached page below.
  5. I believe the 844 is an Open Center hydraulic system so the return pipe to drain plug. In an Open Center system the idle state of the hydraulic system is a continuous flow of hydraulic oil from the reservoir to the pump, out of the pump through the various valves and back to the reservoir. If you don't have this continuous flow the pump will be under high pressure all the time and hopefully there is a relief valve in the system or the pump or hydraulic line can burst. The only reason you would not require that line to the drain is if the auxiliary tank has a line out the bottom to the hydraulic pump but it maybe there to equalize the hydraulic fluid in the diff/trans and the auxiliary tank.
  6. Yes, a long time ago on the 434 with 1501 loader. The test for this is with an implement on the 3pt hitch lifted off the ground turn ON (Screw inward) the Isolating valve and don't move either the Raise/Lower or Depth Control levers and if the 3pt hitch goes down then the problem is the seals on the 3pt lift cylinder, if the 3pt hitch remains in the same position then it is an O-ring somewhere. We never did fix our 434 as we seldom used the 3pt except for a back blade in the winter.
  7. Hi read the IH Service Section Group 10 Hydraulic System, Page 7, it explains how the position control linkage works and I am wondering if your draft control valve or the drop check valve is sticking open? Is all the hardware where the 3pt top link connects to the rear of the tractor in good working order and the torsion rod for the draft control sensing is not broken?
  8. Hi, the Fast/Slow on the Raise/Lower lever controls the speed of the Lift/Drop of the 3pt implement when you are in Draft control mode. Example, if you are plowing and the hind wheels drop into a depression the Fast/Slow setting will determine how fast the Depth control will react to maintain the proper depth of the implement. If the 3pt drops rapidly it could be the Unloading valve under the seat is stuck open, usually they get clogged with debris and the 3pt will not go down. See: 454 and 885 has same hydraulic system
  9. My brother had the same problem with an IH 435 baler he bought from a neighbor that sat in a shed for 5 years. He just kept squirted penetrating oil into mechanism in the knotter. He took the twine out of the knotters, run the PTO slowly, kept squirting penetrating oil and tripping the knotters manually and it freed up.
  10. If you google and explore the different links, you will find a $12.68 cable from an A & I dealer that is if you live in the USA.
  11. It is time for a new cable, I see the outer part of the cable is not inside the bushing on the injection pump. Is that a 3cyl D-179 German engine on a 454 or 464? I believe the part number for the 454/464 cable is 529000R1 and if you google the part number you will find several options.
  12. Hi Edsfarms, since your 885 has the toggle switch on the left with the Rabbit and Turtle symbols, it has the two speed power shift option, the updated version of the old mechanical operated T/A option.
  13. Hi, the T/A or Two Speed Power Shift controls would be under the battery box just behind the bell housing, see attached photo of the Power Shift Valve and item #1 is a rotary solenoid and will have an electrical cable attached to it. I also included a photo the location of the Serial Numbers on an 885, included is the decode of the Transmission Serial Number Suffix Codes for the IH 84 series tractors, I could not find equivalent for the CIH 85 or 95 Series tractors. Re left hand hole in the dash, I have seen them plugged with a metal or plastic plug if no T/A was installed.
  14. Hi, a 685 will have a German D-239 Diesel engine and in the past someone probably over heated it and caused the O-rings on the sleeves to leak coolant into the crankcase. Do as CIHTECH says, drop the oil pan and put water in it and look for drips. Unfortunately with 4x4 it is a bit more difficult to drop oil pan. Do you have a service manual?
  15. Injpumped is correct on the older fuel pumps like the Bosch VA without fuel additives the seals will start leaking using ULSD fuel. The newer pumps were designed for ULSD.
  16. That is also what the local Diesel shop Tech told our neighbor when he had his pump from his Cat 2408 truck engine overhauled this spring. This Tech has 30+ years of experience on pumps and 20 years ago he recommended ATF but NOT NOW.
  17. Hi, welcome to this forum. I hope your 685 does not have a cab or it is more of a PITA. Here is link to CaseIH.com parts for the transmission shift lever parts: https://www.mycnhistore.com/us/en/caseih/tractors/agricultural/under-100-hp/case-ih-diesel-tractor/power-train/transmission-control-external/cn/12827D55-8FBF-E111-9FCE-005056875BD Last summer I helped my brother replace the outer left rear axle bearing on his CIH 495, same rear end as your 685, see attached photo below. His 495 had a roll bar as well which made it more difficult, so we chose to remove both fenders, fuel tank and roll bar as one unit and to do this we had to remove both rear wheels. For your problem, if you have a air hammer or long bar or rod, I would come in from the rear over the top of the axle housing and tap on the of part #22 in the CaseIH parts diagram. To get better access requires removing the seat and the deck plate which can be a PITA unless you have a helper. From the photo of the 495 you can see the outer support with the large bolt holes is swung upward as it normally bolts to the holes on the rear axle housing. The inside of the shifter assembly bolts to the side of the range/diff housing.
  18. Nice 585, D-206 is a very good motor.
  19. Is this update due to worn out bearings on has CIH came out with a new style improved bearing? The reason I ask is my brother has a CIH RBX 442 Round Baler and last year the bearing for the upper driver roller p/n 353125 started to over heat so he replaced it and then again early in the hay season the new bearing totally seized after only about 200 bales. The p/n on the new CNH bearing package is 9608135, made in Japan. He purchased both bearings through the local CIH Dealer at $125.00 CND each. He tried the local bearing shop that handles bearings and they can not find a replacement that will fit in the bearing housing, see photo from Messicks.com parts book. Does anyone have any info on this bearing being prone to failure? Or my brother just got a dud? There is no grease zerk to grease. Thanks for any info JimB
  20. Here are the manuals for an IH 674: https://www.redpowermagazine.com/forums/topic/121219-d239-674-engine-manual-pdf/
  21. Thanks for the great photos and hope the weather improves. Same here in eastern Canada we have great crops but can't get much dry weather to harvest them, in western Canada it is the opposite very dry and hot and lots of forest fires.
  22. I assume you have a service manual since you split the 584 to replace the lube pump? In the service manual I have there is a procedure for adjusting the PTO lever and linkage to get the total spool movement of 1.14 to 1.18 Inches and hydraulic pressure checks on a T-fitting by the MCV to be 260-270 PSI. Have you performed the pressure checks?
  23. Hi, See Highlighted Purple hydraulic line to remove and cap end near the fuel tank where it connects to the draft control, from your photo in photo below. Second photo shows hydraulic hose item #30 going from 90* elbow on top of remote valve to input of loader valves and item #35 elbow connecting to return of loader valves to drain plug under the right axle, item #28,27 and 29 are required to connect the return line to the drain plug. Trick to remove drain plug and install adapter and return hose, if you have a shop vac, stick the suction hose in the hydraulic filler hole on rear of hydraulic housing and seal around shop vac suction line, turn on shop vac and you should be able to swap drain plug with adapter fittings and return hose without loosing much hydraulic oil.
  24. Hi, I assume you want to a separate set of hydraulic valves to operate the loader and leave the remote valves free? See that L-shaped hydraulic pipe that is on the far left of your photo and goes back towards the fuel tank and connects to the draft control unit on top of the hydraulic housing. That is the high pressure return line from the remote valves. Remove this L-shaped line, cap off the rear port where the line connected to the draft control, loosen the lock nut on the 90 degree elbow where the front of the line connected and position it and connect this elbow to the input side of your loader hydraulic valves. The return line from the loader hydraulic valves will go to the differential drain plug under the right rear axle, the drain plug requires a reducer and a 90 degree elbow to connect with the return line from the loader. CAUTION, if you remove the hydraulic valves from the loader you must connect the loader hydraulic valves input line to the return line or the hydraulic pump will be under full pressure all the time. If you can wait a day or two, I have more detail on my other computer.
  25. To remove loader do as Snoshoe says. Before my Dad and brother bought the 2250 Quick attach loader, in the summer time we had a tree near the tractor shed that we had a couple chains hanging from that we would suspend the loader arms from to just remove the arms and bucket.
