    International 500 Crawler Diesel Questions

    Could the sluggishness with the 500 reverser be due to a need to change the hi-trans fluid and filters? I have no problem with my 500 reverser. The gas engines in the 500 and 500C are the same but little else is. When I was looking for track pin & bushing and rails I was told that the 500C was not the same as the 500.

    T340 for sale in OK

    I messaged the seller regarding condition and this is the reply. "Its been sitting a while. It needs restored. Sprockets and tracks good shape. Motor is apart but i have everything to put together." I'm not interested. It's too far away and I don't need another project. If someone is interested and needs help contacting the owner, I will try to help. I hate to see old iron sit and rust away or go for scrap.

    Sellor has it listed as a Farmall 240 crawler??? Drive sprocket looks pretty well worn but one picture doesn't tell much.

    1968 IH 500 sprockets

    The pitch is the distance from the center of one pin to the center of the next pin. The pitch on the 500 track is "6 inches".

    1966 T6 Drott price and problem

    This tractor would be a T6 series 62 with a 6 cyl. C-263 engine. What is the condition of the undercarriage? Does the engine smoke? Does everything work but the right steering clutch? The value would depend on the condition and what broke.

    How to tension track on ih 500

    If the tensioner has not been serviced in years the grease maybe dry and blocking the hole under the grease fitting.

    How to tension track on ih 500

    I have a '67 500. There is a grease fitting on one end of the tensioner. If you can't get grease to enter the tensioner, remove the grease fitting and replace it with a new one. If you are getting grease into the tensioner then the inner cylinder should push the idler wheel forward or grease should leak out around the seals. if the seals are bad it maybe lacking in grease and may take quite a bit of grease to get the inner cylinder to move. I was able to get parts to rebuilt the tensioners at a local hydraulic shop. The hard part was getting the tensioner off the rod going to the spring assembly. If the tracks are bad you should have enough room to get the tensioner out without splitting the track.

    IH 500 hydraulic blade controls

    Your driveway looks great compared to what it looked like the day I was there. Have you built the new house yet? I'll check the adjustments on my brakes and maybe tighten them a little. I'll take the spool valve apart and see if it has rust in it. The control valve for the winch was rusty so I cleaned it up and put in new parts and it works fine, so maybe the spool valves are rusty.
  11. I worked my 500 pretty hard for 3.5 hours yesterday working on the tractor pull track at or club grounds. The tractor worked great but I still don't have the steer brakes working right. It steers better forward than backward and steers harder after working it for a while. Should I try tightening the brake bands? The second problem is the controls for the 6-way blade they are very stiff particularly the one that tilts the blade. This made it very difficult to smooth out the track. Moving the levels forward and backward is not too bad but the sideways movement is very hard. Is there something I should take apart and clean? I can take and post a picture of the controls it that would help.

    Undercarriage specs

    I got them from Crawler Heaven. They list the TD at 15 New =28.00", 25% worn = 28.15", 50% worn = 28.34", 75% worn = 28.54", 100% worn = 28.78". Hope this helps.

    Track Chains etc

    It looks like amsundercarriage.com has 500 undercarriage parts. I did not look at actual availability or price.

    Ih 500 clutches

    That would be right. Make sure when you reassemble that the teeth on the first fiber disk mesh with the center hub. When I pulled mine apart the teeth were missing from the first fiber disk and the second one was cracked. It was not assembled correctly and I had to buy two fiber disks before reassembling. There was less than 500 hours on the clutches.

    IH 500 Dozer Reverse really weak PLEASE help!

    My 500 hydraulics whined and chattered because it was low on hytrans fluid. I filled it to the mark on the dipstick and the chattering stopped. The low fluid level also prevented the dozer from climbing a pile of gravel because the reverser was not getting fluid. This would not explain the weak reverse. I think I would see if adjusting the lineage arm would help before I worked on the reverse clutch pack. The arm may not pushed far enough to fully engage the reverse clutch pack.
