  1. Run a later 1680 and there is a double v belt running from hydro drive pump to a small pump under the hyd reservoir. It looking rough kinda like it saying change me. Do all axial flow run this setup? Looks like that hydro pump has to be dropped to change belt. Somebody said there a coupling in there also that should be replaced. Anything else to watch for or any tips, ideas, or shortcuts would be much appreciated.
  2. I think All States Ag Parts carries them for just shy of 50. If I remember right I think you have to use the screw, knob, and nut over they not included with new one.
  3. Replaced pump with reman from cih dealer. Everything back working. Replaced steering pump gasket and no leaking so far. Hopefully it all holds together. Thanks for the replies guys.
  4. Haven't had much time to mess with it so far. Had a tiny drip coming from skid plates all summer running or not so got them off and washed under there and see it leaking between steering pump flange and the belly casting. Parts book says there a gasket in there so I be ordering new. Pulled filters and they not plugged. Drained all hytran. Hopefully find time to pull hitch pump tomorrow.
  5. They talk like rain tomorrow so I should get time to check all that out.
  6. They quit all of a sudden. Haven't been able to investigate yet. Original pph piston pump in there. If it boils down to that pump are new ones available? I see remans are. What luck people been having with the remans? There 7200 hours on that original pump. Like to avoid kitting it over to a gear pump. Hope it something more simple. Any input greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  7. Got four German powered 686's on the farm. Two with original IH/Canada oval mufflers and two with Stanley oval replacements. The Stanley's rattle like crazy like the insides are all loose. Got a Stanley oval on a 966 that doesn't rattle and vibrate like that. Is there other aftermarket choices out there? I have thought about maybe trying a round one if I find one that'll match up. Nothing can compare to the original.
  8. Had same problem here on 3688. Had to use loc tite on bolt and seems to be staying tight now.
  9. 3688 oil cooler failed. Oil and coolant commingled both ways. Looking for ideas to get oil flushed from cooling system. If this was covered in a previous thread please let me know. Thank you
  10. Didn't the 2+2 come with piston hitch and piston steering pumps originally? I think they both could be changed to gear pumps if they went bad. Also they don't have their steering pump on back of mcv. I think the tractor halves would bolt together. You might have to drop that big underslung steering pump and go with a pump on back of mcv. Also probably have to swap the hand steering pump. I think you could leave hitch pump alone. I sure there a ton of things I missing.
  11. I think 2350 was way to go for 686. Got a farmall 544 with 2250 on it. Also own three farmall 686 and I think they would wreck a 2250 pretty easy. Got to say that 544 with 2250 is a handy combo in my opinion. Be handier if it was hydro though.
  12. Many hours in the field/vehicle/barn/shop listening to him. 11am to 2pm in my time zone. He will be missed
