  1. Hi guys. Well, the ring gear in my 100C (TD7C) loader is toast, and I'm nervous that I won't be able to find a replacement. Not to mention, the price of a new ring gear and replacing the starter which is also broken. I was thinking--and someone please tell me why this won't work before I spend a bunch of money. Could I use the main hydraulic pump on the loader as a hydraulic starter? I mean, most gear pumps can be used as a pump or a motor, and in most case, the can be run either direction. Not always, but usually. You take a standard Honda or Briggs gas engine connecte
  2. Hey Louie, the service manual is in the mail. Unfortunately it's still one and a half weeks away. This weekend I got the rad out, wiring, lines and gauges peeled away from the engine. Removed and capped most the lines out of the torque converter. Lots of room to work with that rad out if the way. Does the drive shaft have a slip yoke like a pickup truck? Im thinking it doesnt, and the ujoint strap need to be removed. Any tips? Hopefully get the engine out later this week.
  3. Well, the reason I got it cheap was because the ring gear on the flywheel is toast. Missing lots of teeth because the starter is not disengaging properly. It needs a new ring gear and starter pinion. I'm going to pull the engine this weekend. What's the easiest way? -should I pull the radiator for space? looks easy enough -should I leave torque convertor attached to engine? Thanks
  4. Thanks Louie. Thats exactly what I was looking for. I'll have manuals in a few weeks, but thats fills in some gaps for now. I've got some work to do on that throttle linkage. I'll get some pictures. Just waiting for the ground to dry a bit, then we'll build some roads. Little idea what I'm doing. Got a gravel pit, this 100C and a 200 hoe. More energy than brains, couple of kids we are. Thanks again Louie. Man thats a deadly little ripper on the back or your loader. Is that the stock unit?
  5. Hi guys. I'm the new owner of a 100C (TD7C in loader trim). I ordered the service and owners manuals already (first step with new iron). While I wait.. a few questions for you folks: -The throttle lever on the dash. Which position is the cold start position I'm hearing about? There seems to be a large notch at the very bottom--I'm thinking that is "stop". Just up from stop, like the lowest RUN throttle position.. is that cold start? I think my low idle is set too low, it dies at the lowest run position. -Should I hit the decelerator when shifting with the power shift? Or is the best
