  1. You have to take the cab off to access it. If blowing from the bottom isn’t working, most likely the tray is built up with mud.
  2. CIHTECH, i would be interested in the manual as well. I will get you my serial number. Thanks Rick
  3. You’re fine lifting the blade, I don’t think you would have enough power to move it on gas.
  4. Ran a cIH 8380 for years. Cut very good in dry conditions, but in damp conditions, hay wraps on the top roller. Helps to keep the stripper bar set close. Never had any major issues with the drive system. Rick
  5. I would start by checking pressures. There was a post a couple months back describing where and how to check. Are you sure the temp gauge is working? Also check all your filters again as well as the suction line. Sounds like you have some oil contamination, time for a replacement. Good luck. Rick
  6. are you loosing clutch pressure while in 1st and 3rd? If it is staying up, i'd start with the selector. Rick
  7. Looking good! You’re disks should be fine. Once you have the machine running, just don’t let it sit for long periods.

    Maxxum pto

    I have the same issue. See my earlier post. CIHTech and GearClash explain it pretty good. I’m going to wait until the fall to tear mine apart. Good luck, please keep me posted. Rick

    5240 PTO Issue

    Cihtech/Gearclash...thank you very much for the information. For now, we’re just going to use it on the rake, where the pto is not needed. We will take it apart later. I will keep you posted. Rick

    5240 PTO Issue

    CaseIH 5240 started having PTO issues. It is stopping intermittently, but getting worse. My guess is the shift pins for 540/1000 PTO are worn. Any other ideas? History: -Oil leaking from internal of PTO housing...has been slow drip for some time. -Running baler @ 540 pto, stops intermittently.] -When you re-engage it, sometimes it will start again, sometimes it won't start. When it won't start, makes a noise as if gears are not quite meshed. -Dash shows PTO is in 1000, when in 540 position. More than likely going to have to pull it apart? thanks Rick R

    A nice looking 5088 for sale on a fbook group I’m on. I don’t know the asking price. Thought some of you might be interested. Rick
  12. Mercury power tune is a pretty good product. Rick
  13. Yes I have used the petrogen torch. Works very good, almost better than gas. Use it in the rescue industry as acetylene can’t be flown on a plane. Some good YouTube videos. Only down side is it is exspensive to purchase. For cutting, I now prefer a plasma cutter. Rick
