  1. By golly it appears I am!! Good catch😄
  2. Saw this : Ser# 14095 Sold on Jacob Auctions $35000 CAD
  3. Here in north central Iowa 90% + beans get rolled either after planted, before planted, or after they come up. You see rollers around here a bunch
  4. Putting the lever on. It keeps it in place.
  5. 1660 IH Engine Removal Think I took the fan and shroud off. Engine slid forward enough. Then turned it sideways as it came out the back. You can see I took the railing off on the right side.
  6. Thanks for the replies. I hope I don't lose another remote. I will update when I get time to work on it. Ground is shaping up fast. Planters are rolling!
  7. Last fall noticed when I tried to fold disk wing, quit working. Figured hose coupler or something. #3 remote Fast forward till today. (10th season with this tractor planter combo)#3 Can't get enough flow to run bulk fill fan on 1250 planter. Need 3000 rpm, will only do 2400rpm flow knob adjusted full flow. For some reason won't work to have that on #1 to run bulk fill. When you do it won't let #2 raise planter. Got it to work with bulk fill #2 Planter raise #1 Am I right thinking #3 has an issue in remote valve under cab?
  8. I only use the jumper wire on solenoid if it goes bad, to get you by till you can replace. It's laying on floor in pic Nothing has been added recently electrically. The extra red wire on solenoid feeds my Raven monitor. The other wire with fuse that's not hooked up is for light bar. Had tractor for 40years. Has had those couple extra wires I mentioned for 15 years. It was prolly 8-10 years ago Ag Express repaired Tach. Like mentioned, might be internal issue with tach.
  9. Like I posted, 1980 model, mine doesn't have those oil pressure switches.
  10. Been around these tractors for 40 years, and if I've fixed this issue before must have CRS. Don't remember what causes this. Shut tractor off, Turn key off, digital lit 0's dim but stay on. 1980 model. Doesnt have oil pressure sensors beside Engine oil filter base. I had to unplug white fuse holder to shut tach off. Hmmmm, not sure the culprit on this. Thanks Mark Notice in my photo. I keep a jumper wire handy for when the solenoid goes bad....
  11. Clay, I also extended the rod (1.5") for the Parking brake manual release. Just in case, if needed to use that special tool furnished to pump up and release parking brake. It's under floor mat, access hole. Pic of rod assembly
  12. Its a 2002 model. 118000 serial # Here is a pic of me putting the Priority Valve back in after going thru it and checking some stuff. Was easy to get to it, and remove and install, with the extra clearance.
  13. Nice video of some great lookin stuff https://youtu.be/no6nrCZJLZI
  14. Thought I would bring this thread to top and show what I found with my MX240 that acted same as original post. Use remote and after, you could still hear pump stroked and pressure for most way across field like I mentioned in an above post. Found 2 things. Bleed Orifice partially blocked and oring on pump that seals compensator to swash plate tube was worn thin. Thanks SDman! You can't find orings and gskts in MX240 parts, but you need to look in early Magnum like 7140. Pics for you Was google searching for some other stuff for mx240. This thread popped up. Thought I would reply again with what fixed mine. It will surely help somebody google searching for a fix for their tractor👍
  15. Common issue on the first MX Magnums are how tight the hoses are and rub each other at front bottom of cab where they travel under and connect to tubes. Especially the power steering hoses that supply and return from the Handpump. Didn't know one of them was cutting into the oil cooler hose/tube assembly......until it was too late, ruined power steering hose. Also ruined the oil cooler hose that is part of a hose/tube assembly that is probably one of the most time consuming to get to and replace.(Pic of new and old) From advice of others that have done it. I spaced up the cab. I went up 1 1/2". One hockey puck and 1/2" steel plate. Makes it waaaay better now for clearancing hoses at front lower part of cab. I have it now, that none rub on each other. It was pretty much impossible to make the steering supply lines and the cooler hose to clear each other. They laid right on each other and aren't wrapped from factory. Arrrrrrg..... well I take that back. They rub so hard, they wore thru the plastic loom and then hoses ate each other right thru. I used metric threaded rod to make a bolt that would work. Fastenal part # in pic. 1 piece is long enough to make make 4 bolts. Cut at 9 1/2 " , weld nut on one end makes it 9" long verses the original 7 1/2" bolt. Drill hole in hockey puck, and punched a 5/8" hole in a 3×3 plate. Need plate above hockey puck for bushing that goes thru cab channel to tighten against. The original plate that is still used under hockey puck, is metric threaded, that's why you need metric rod so you can still tighten down original cab isolators. I didn't go 2" because it was going to be more of an issue with a couple things. But I still have way more room and it works great! Even getting cab air filter out, and fuel tanks in and out from mountings. Only way to get the front cab mounts apart to replace bolts is you have to remove fuel tanks. So that is the most work in spacing up the cab. That tube assembly can be sent in and fixed for $450 less than new, or can get whole new assembly for $335 less than CaseIH , from New Hydraulics in Oshkosh Wi. Part# 418919A2 New Hydraulics doesn't show the other hose/tube assembly (return) under cab 414576A2 but I'm sure they could make you one if they had your old one. These hose/tube assemblies are for tractor serial #'s with oil cooler cold weather safety bypass valve (last pic shows what it looks like, located under air cleaner) Few pics for ya. 😉 Yep, I replaced every hose at front of cab, prolly never have to do it again now that I can get to them, plus I did it right😄
