  1. 1680 valve stack leak

    Picked up a late serial number Case IH 1680 last summer (s/n117068) and for the price I couldn't pass up. Cleanest second generation axial flow I've ever seen. Very well taken care of machine. After harvest it's was washed and waxed as usual for me, I've noticed oil on the shop floor and it looks like the valve stack outside the cab is leaking... Everything is oily and it's been very hard to pinpoint. I have Field tracker along with fore and aft reel. Everything works as it should, nothing leaks down except the unloading auger will leak off and leave the cradle along with leaking back in if I run with the auger out. Maybe that valve needs gone through? Is this a easy fix as far as replacing o rings on all the nipples where the hoses connect? No means afraid of a scattered out project and little pieces. Rarely have the dealer out. I do all my own maintenance and know these combines very well except for this area. Thanks in advance for any help, Alex
  2. IH915 Air in Drive System

    A few years ago we bought a 915. We knew when we bought it that when the hopper was full the drive/pull of the combine would get sluggish. With that in mind we replaced the main hydraulic pump and pulled and rebuilt both drive pumps down at the drive wheels. The first time using the machine after all of these repairs seemed to be going well. Until the machine's drive/pull got sluggish to the point that the machine would not move. We found when this happens the hydraulic fluid is foamy looking with a lot of air entangled in the fluid. If the machine sits for an hour or so the air dissipates and it will move normally - until it repeats. I don't remember seeing a lot of 915's in this area (eastern South Carolina) growing up and we haven't been able to find anyone local that "knows" the 915 (or 815) machines. There were a ton of 715's! I am hoping someone sees this, knows from experience what may be causing the fluid to get so much air in it during operation and be able to give me a lead on what to do next? Thanks!
  3. 303 combine Ignition switch

    Hi Everyone! I'm working on the 303 again and I bent the starting switch (long story) and I was wondering where I could get a new one if anyone knows of any sites or a specific switch to get. I was looking at Steiner Tractors parts and they have a few, just didn't know which one would fit on it. Any help would be very appreciated! Jon
  4. Case IH Combine Pro Demo Team

    I've had a few requests from members to start a thread about the Combine Pro Demo Team. I have been apart of this Team for the past two years during wheat harvest and this year for corn and beans. To start off, I'll go into how I got started with the company. -When I was attending the University of Tennessee at Martin, I was an avid member of the ASABE 1/4 Scale Tractor Team. In which I became Team Captain and President during my Junior and Senior year. We would design and build a 1/4 scale tractor, from scratch, each year and go to Peoria, Illinois for our competition in June. During competition, my sophomore year, I became friends with a gentleman from Iowa State's team. We began to discuss different components of the tractors and what we had planned after we graduate college. I told him that it would fulfill a life long dream of mine if I ever got a chance to work for Case IH (I'll bleed Farmall red till' the day im dead). Little did I know at the time that he was actually on the Pro Demo Team. The next year rolls around, and I get a call from one of my good friends, former President of the UTM Tractor Team and now a Area Service Rep for NH, early one morning explaining to me that I need to send my resume to the Corporate Harvesting Division of CNHi. ( Side note: After my graduation this past May, CNHi has picked a student for the past 7 years from our tractor team at UT Martin. I was chosen last year and this year.) I get a call from the NAFTA Marketing Manager for the Combine Division explaining to me that he would like to get me onboard within the company and send me out to the Midwestern states to be on a team to demonstrate a brand new 8240 Axial-Flow combine and a 3162 Terra-Flex draper header. Now to actually talk about what the Pro Demo Team really is! - The Pro Demo Team is a group of two to three individuals (Product Specialists) that start off in Vernon, Texas at the Custom Harvester's Kickoff Meeting. During our time in Texas and Oklahoma we would mainly follow Pro Harvest around and go out on calls to different custom cutters in the area that were in need of assistance. Then we would travel to Kansas to pick up our demonstration combine and header. Our demo combine would be built and shipped from the factory in Grand Island straight to the selected dealership in Eastern Kansas. -Starting in Kansas, we would go from dealership to dealership demonstrating the 8240 and 3162 to different farmers in the area that were looking to get into either a larger machine, tired of their older machines, or simply, the most common reason, they were unhappy with their current brand's service in their area. After Kansas we would travel to Colorado and then to Montana. All while living out of a hotel room for three months at a time! The demo combine, for my past two years, has been purchased by a string of dealerships in Montana. So when we finish up in Montana, or reach the 240 engine hour limit, we will head to the Dakota's and start to use dealer inventory units to conduct the demonstrations. (-Going back to roles of the members. My main role is sometimes the dirtiest and most painstaking. When we are at demo's, I go out into the field and "rooster tail" and check losses behing our unit and the customers unit and determine if there were any changes that needed to be made to reduce loss. At the end of the day I would take all of my needed data and put it into an excel spreadsheet and send it to corporate. I would also give the customers a "walk around" of the machine explaining the Axial-Flow rotor, spreading system, and other key points of the unit. The other member of the team would actually be the one to get up in the cab and show the customer the ropes on what button does what and other necessary functions. ) -After wheat is all finished up we will go home for a week or two during August to see our families and the most important thing of all, TO SLEEP IN OUR OWN BEDS FINALLY!! -During harvest last year I did not go back out for corn and beans because of college, so this year will be my first for fall harvest. -During the end of August, first of September we will travel to West Tennessee to begin the process over again. Using dealer inventory units we would go out to customers to demo. After Tennessee we will travel to Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, and Wisconsin to follow the corn and bean harvest. I will upload some pictures on this thread as well along the journey!
  5. 303 combine tires and rims worth

    Hi everyone, I'm looking to buy some tires and rims for my 303 combine. I'm going down to Indiana to pick some up and I'm going to post some pictures of them. I'm buying all four tires and rims. They want $450 for them all and I'm wondering if that's a fair deal. Thank you!
  6. IH 303 combine tire size

    Hi everyone! I need some help. I am unable to check the tire size on my 303 combine (long story) and I'm wondering if anyone knows the standard size of them. I have an early model 303 combine. I'm going down to salvage yard to buy new ones because I just don't like the rice tires I have on mine. Any help is very appreciated! Thanks ~Jon
  7. I am having issues with the automatic head control on a IH 1460 using a 820 beans head. The combine uses electric over hydraulic. I am hoping someone can give me some advice to narrow down the problem. Here are the symptoms. In the past, when the head control was on, we could momentarily press the down button and the head would lower fully and then "float" back up to the set height. This year when I press the button it behave in a number of different ways. Sometimes the head will lower, but it will stop at the bottom and not "float" back up. Other time when I monetarily press the down button, it will drop, but it stutters as it goes down and just stops at the end. It does not float back up. Sometimes, I need to keep the button depressed until it bottoms out. When I release the button, it will rise to a set level on its owns. Sometimes it will not drop at all when I press and hold the down button. After i hold it for a few seconds, it will eventually drop. When it is down and I turn the height knob, it will raise and lower to a new height, but it seems to make big jumps. Even when the head raised to a level on its own after lowering it, it does not float. I tried lowering the head on a 2x4. With the head down, I pull up on the 2x4 to simulate going over uneven ground, the head did not react. I measured the voltage at the POT. I had 8,4volts. and 4.7 volts . I measured the resistance of the POT. With the head in the air, it was around 500ohms. AS I pulled up on the 2x4, I could see the resistance change to up over 1000 ohms as the 2x4 was pulled up and let down (pulling up on the flex head). We have the engine oil pressure switch for the header bypassed to rule out that issue. Looking at the schematic in the owners manual, it appears everything goes in and out of a Automatic header controller. I am starting to wonder if that is the issue. Can anyone give me some idea what to test and what to look for to narrow down the issue? I greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance Dave
  8. 1460 Combine hyd probs

    Well, we've got problems. Cutting yesterday and the steering, header reel, and unloading augar swing quit working all of a sudden. We've checked the solenoids and they are magnetized. Steering shouldn't have one I would think but anyways no steering, no reel lift, no augar swing. Need help
