  1. A pressure reading while trying to turn would tell whether problem is hydraulic or mechanical.
  2. When I started in the dealership M's were an everyday thing. Never saw a puller used. Two guys with prybars. One on each side. Pry as close to center as you can. Never on rim. Never took more than 30 seconds. I realize it sounds crude but always worked. I suppose if I had to do one by myself now I would probably try to rig up a puller but not until I could not find anyone else to run the other bar
  3. Yes it is the industrial version of the 504. Fill loader bucket when useing backhoe. If you take hoe off you will need all those weights and more on the rear.
  4. Chrome ring is top. Leaves black for second.
  5. That tractor did not have that backhoe when it left the factory. That is why all the hoses all over. Original circuit would have had the 12 gallon flow going to flow divider where hose comes from diverter now. That would leave 9 gallon to come out tee (it was an elbow then) back to auxillary, power beyond and loader. Piggyback then supplied hitch. Print this and valve assembly instructions and put in your book. Don't know if this rusty mind could do it again.🙂
  6. Takes four balls to make it work. Three smaller balls through holes into groove. One larger ball on top to push the three out. Number 8 is piston that raises larger ball to re lease the other three. Clamp spool 18 in vise by the flats with the spool standing up. Assemble 8 into 10 with small end protruding slightly from hole inside. Assemble 10,11,12,13 and 14 to spool and tighten. Drop sleeve 15 over spool. Then 7 over 10. Then drop the three balls. They should hit the pin and roll into a hole. If pin protudes to far balls will hang up. Just push it down a little. Next drop in larger bal
  7. Thats not good. Does it make any difference turning spool half over? How hard to move once in. I was just typing an assembly sequence to fill in gaps of J's shorthand version. Takes me awhile.
  8. Well I missed it. I thought he asked for opinions. I was wrong he asked for comments.
  9. If the rings are worn so are the lands in the piston. The sides of the old rings are worn to fit the old lands. New rings will not have the face worn off and will sit deeper in groove than where old rings were sitting and land is not worn as much. The outside edge of land will be rounded. Bottom of new ring won't be. This gives a shorter bearing area for the ring and results in a rocking twisting motion to the ring. This results in broken rings and lands. If it doesn't it didn't need rings in the first place. In all my years I have never seen an engine that uses alloy rings that didn't use jus
  10. Almost anybody here can do that. I'm a little busy to type it up right now. Will be back later if you still need help
  11. I can disagree a little bit. Backhoe return line would be a good place for a filter, but it will not replace internal filter. Useing gear box for reservour makes suction line filter almost mandatory.

    IH 856

    I don't have the picture posting ability of others but it is in mcv in bore above orifice which is 5/8 hex on lower rear of valve.
  13. I believe the source of the slime and grit is the interior of the tractor castings. I'm going to suggest a cleanup procedure. Remove clean and dry filter bypass valve. Tape over screen. So all oil has to go through filter. Use stabilizers and loader to raise tractor off ground and block it up. Run tractor in gear change speeds gears and directions once in a while. Listen for signs of pump cavitating. If it does slow down or change filter. Be sure diverter is in steer position so you have lube. When you think it must be getting clean. Operate loader and hoe to flush them. Try to avoid end of st
