    McCormick tractors

    okay thanks for correcting me

    McCormick tractors

    They are made by Agco in Europe somewhere. Don't quote me on it by I heard they weren't very good.
  3. Could we have a pressure issue or is this normal when starting to work a tractor that had not been used for a while? There was definitely crud etc. but the screen had ripped off outer rim. It was purchased new by us from CaseIH. Probably less than ten hrs on it.
  4. Bendix parts it is, thanks guys!
  5. I believe New Holland took them over. to slightly satisfy your curiosity im starting to think the o-ring is a piece that doesn't belong in there at all!
  6. These were found in the bell housing of a Ford 8n with a Sherman over under transmission any idea what there for?
  7. Unfortunately switching hoses did not resolve the issue. No up or down at all with them switched. Swithched them at the block, not the cylinder. Maybe we should try it at the cylinder? Edit: Matt I found an older thread about a 560 with similar problems in which your advice solved issue. Will switch at cylinder and report back. I switched at block thinking it would make no difference, and fitting needed new seal on block.
  8. Hoping you all understand and can answer this. Where should the lever under seat be when attaching adjustment rod? I assume it should be where it is. Can't seem to get right adjustment without it staying on relief. I also am questioning if hoses off block behind seat to cylinder are reversed?? When I put handle up to raise it goes down. When I put handle forward or down it wants to raise. No literature that we have addresses these issues.
  9. O rings om lever shaft solved that leak, now cover is leaking with new gasket. Bought a few extra cover gaskets. Thought I had both cover and section clean. By chance will gasket seal itself with a little time? How much pressure is on that end of valve?
  10. Yeah I'm afraid your right certain serial numbers were known to blow up, however there are only a few cases and as vt said they were used for around 30 years
  11. They are from an assortment and I'll order new ones from cih with the gasket thanks
  12. Here are a few pictures to show you where we are at:we have the orings. This is as far as I'd like to go. Do not have a new gasket, hoping to reuse this one. Really want to get this tractor into service. Besides our time, is there any reason not to put it back together without going into valve body and spool? New o rings between valve sections and manifolds. The lift for the three point works fine, as does the power steering. I expect the side remotes would as well, but we would not be using them anyhow. Appreciate your thoughts.
  13. Thanks for replies. Will try to get GSS book, have had good luck getting pdf versions for other tractors and printing relevant pages. After cleaning valve bank it is very evident that the leak is coming from the follow up lever shaft on the Tel-A-Depth control valve. Not the side of the rod linkage, but the opposite side. Any more advice for this novice? We do have the I&H shop manual, not sure I'm confident in a complete rebuild.
  14. After finding more here it looks like o rings between valve bodies. Sound correct?
