    Mystery pin?

    I bought a 1962 International 606 and in the process of changing fluids and filters. When pulling the hydraulic filter out these two pieces of pin were laying in the filter housing. Any ideas as to what it could be?
  2. Hi all I am in a little trouble here as the snow is piling up. I have a farmall 200 basically a super c with a tube style loader. the hydraulics have been marginal since buying the tractor but they did work all summer I moved approx 100 tons of gravel over the summer. but now they will not work. the last time I plowed they were slower than normal and I tightened all of the fittings as it looked like the oil had air bubbles . today the hydraulics will not work at all. The motor rpm will increase speed when the touch control levers are pulled back or the fast hitch lever is moved into position. there does not appear to be extra oil in the crankcase. there is a two way valve that allows the oil to go to the fast hitch lever in one position and the loader valve in the other and it seems like over the years sometimes have to move that valve back and forth to get the loader to work. I have done the following to the hydraulics this year but the hydraulics worked after doing these things. == replaced the 1 gallon tank with a five gallon tank as the one gallon tank overflowed often the 5 gallon tank does not. == replaced the inexpensive hyd oil with IH recommended low foaming oil it has been drained and refilled twice. == replaced the strainer with a new one (most expensive oil filter I ever bought). The tractor has sat for the last couple of months without running. I did plow snow last week with it but the hydraulics were not functioning correctly then either. A few more things I went out after lunch and started the tractor up and the hydraulics worked fine for a couple of minutes. I moved the touch control levers back and forth several times and everything worked I started plowing snow and after a couple of minutes the hydraulics quit an oil came out of the top of the reservoir. first time since I got the new tank. I did fill it this morning. but I am wondering if that may not be air trapped in the system . the pump is not hot to the touch. just as a side note the loader when lifted up and shut off will stay up for months. the backblade for a week or so. I have very little hydraulic knowledge. I would appreciate any troubleshooting tips
  3. Hello everyone, Im new to the forum, Love all the info. I've been a lurker for years. Ive always enjopyed IH tractors. I've read a lot of the previous posts which has helped, however I do still have a problem with my 1086.. If you could help troubleshoot this with me, i'd really appreciate it! 1086 tractor, closed ceter hydraulics. below is the time line of what i noticed happening. noticed that the PTO had trouble staying engaged early in the fall. it eventually stayed on when I was chopping clover. later in fall I noticed that the 3PTH wouldnt stay up. It was moving as I thought it should plowing but when tractor was off( I would come back in the moring and the plow would be on the ground) everything was still ok, (Or so I thought) I plowed 80 acres ..then my brother was finishing up plowing and the 3pth arms wouldn't come up and bring the plow out of the ground. (he decided to shut the tractor off and try it again) the arms came up so he decided best thing to do was head for the shop On his way up to the house he lost the power steering, (TA acted funny too ... I thought he said that the tractor would only move in DD) **TA would only work one way** I borrowed a setup from my friend who had a flow meter with a pressure gauge and put it on the remotes I could only get 5gpm out of the remote if i pinched back the valve I could build pressure ( around 1500) but I could hear the pump cavitate so i stopped) I grabbed some filters and found that the screen and filter was pretty much plugged. (see pic) lots of glitter in oil swapped both hydraulic filters and cleaned the screen (I knew something was definitely wrong) I needed to clean and wash the tractor to work on it. I put the flow meter back on after the filter change and it was similar (low flow 5gpm) and I could build pressure but it still wasnt right) I drove it a short distance ( the lube light worked as I thought it should and I had power steering) I had it in TA (lever back) on the way over becasue i was a little chicken and I didnt want to shift it I noticed that the PTO was turning when I got out of the tractor (I didnt engage it) it didnt really want to shut off but it finally did, it was like it was slipping we cleaned it off and prepared to remove the hitch pump (I thought that was it **THE SMOKING GUN**) We drained the oil and found lots of metal (see pics) unfortuntely we didnt keep track of what metal came out of which drain. (Not sure what the big piece with arrows is) I thought it came from clutch housing? pretty sure we got metal out of all drain ports got the hitch pump out and we thought we would have saw a smoking gun. took the cover off (the pump) can't see any signs of destruction) we were going to pull the mcv next and see whats in there Looking for some direction. were still looking for the smoking gun, any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks so much in advance!
  4. We put a second hydraulic pump and relief value (the one under the fuel tank) in my 986 and still have low pressure. A friend who works at an IH dealer came out and checked it with his hydraulic tester. He said the flow is good but when he applied pressure it drops off. We tested both hydraulic hook ups. He says he is stumped as to what could cause the issue and needs to think about it. I was hoping someone here might have run across something similar and can help us narrow down the issue.
  5. I have a control valve that is leaking on my 656. It is leaking around the back side of the valve to the point I gotta get it fixed because I am losing too much fluid. How hard are they to rebuild and is there a "how too post on here?
  6. I have a Farmall 656 that the 3 point doesn't always lift. You can move the lever to raise the hitch but the hitch may not move for a period of time then all of a sudden it'll raise, if I slightly move an aux lever it'll come right up. Trying to sell this tractor and not wanting to dump a load into it if this is something simple. I removed the top cover under the seat and checked the relief valve in the right front corner but it doesn't seem to be seeping much unless you deadhead it the hydraulics. aux and steering are fine, when hitch decides to lift it lifts fine even at low idle so I doubt pump is the problem. Any advice or ideas will be appreciated.
  7. 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

    Hydraulic fluid

    Has anyone ever used schaeffer hydraulic oil in place of hytran? We use their synthetic engine oil and it is very high quality and a great all around product. The salesman wanted us to try their hydraulic fluid on our hydro 84 but not sure what to do. He claimed that the newest hytran doesn't meet the specs that it used to. Any thoughts?
