  1. I have a 2005 4410 sprayer with just over 5k hours. Previous owner said one hydrostatic pump has been replaced (not sure which one). Today I started noticing some wonky things, I'll list them in the order I noticed them in. Also the dealer is coming out Monday to diagnose the problem. I figured I'd post it on here and see if any had any thoughts, or if nothing else I'll post what we figure out to help someone else out. (this all started happening when I was nearing the end of my load, so the sprayer was hot) #1 I noticed the chemical pump stopping and starting again when stopping and starting driving. (mph, not rpm) #2 Then I noticed the sprayer being pretty sluggish when using the hydrostatic lever. I was working around poles so I was doing a lot of starting and stopping. It felt kinda like I was spinning out, but I wasn't. And with the speed pot at it's minimum, and the lever at it's maximum, where I used to get 9mph (if I remember right) now I was only getting 4-8mph. (Sometimes 4 sometimes 6 ext,) #3 I switched fields and noticed I was only getting 26mph, and slowly work it's way up to 29. Where before it was 32 bang on everytime. #4 With the engine idling, the ladder won't quite raise all the way. But as soon as you rev the engine it'll come right up. Which speaking of the ladder, the ladder does not fail the "real" ladder test. (Pot speed 100%, rolling at 5mph, go full speed with the hydrostat lever, the ladder doesn't move at all.) The sprayer on the other hand takes an eternity to reach full speed. (or 29mph) I did notice however, when I was rinsing the tank. That when I do the ladder test with chemical pump on, the pump pressure will drop down to 15 or 20psi. Unable to stay where I put it. We used a infrared thermometer on what I think was the case drain on the wheel motors. The dealer said if the swash plate is messed up it'll bypass a lot more fluid. They were all within 10°(F) though. We're kind of suspecting the left side charge pump. Because from following lines it looks like that's what runs the chemical pump and maybe the ladder? Couldn't quite tell though. But honestly nothing quite makes sense to me.
  2. 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!
  3. I have a 91 1660 combine electric over hydraulic my head settled a little bit last fall now it is settling rather fast where is the first place to start thank you
  4. Hi guys, In an effort to find the answer on my own and not have to rehash a topic that has surely been beat to death, I have searched this forum and some other places, but to no avail. Either I can't find the answer or I'm not smart enough to understand the answer.... so, here it goes. (Also, thank you for the help with all my other 886 woes. You guys are awesome!) I have abandoned the PTO pump and mid-mount valve and plumbed the loader lift and tilt direct to the remotes on the 886, purged the air and topped off the hydraulic system. 1 - Loader is gosh awful slow. Is this normal for the little tractors? 2 - Loader won't lift front end of tractor off the ground. Hardly takes up slack in loader pins. 3 - I can hear a "relief" sound at max cylinder stroke going up and when fully tilted. 4 - PTO is strong if that means anything. 5 - 3PT seems to work as usual. 6 - Steering is strong and sequels hard on full turn like it always has. 7 - TA shifts strong, brakes are very good, everything responds fast and well except the loader on the remotes. So, where do I need to check pressures, what order do I check them in, and what other info do you need to tell me what to do next? Don't worry, I'm almost done with this thing, I think, and will quit pestering you guys for info soon, we all hope!? After that, it's off to the hobby ranch for a slow painful death.... Maybe for both of us....
  5. hello, I have a problem with the 3 pt lift on the tractor. it will go up no problem and will hold an implement fine. When you move the lever to lower the implement the hitch is very slow to descend. Could anyone help with the problem ? the PTO works fine Also the steering is only under power when i have the auxiliary value in the up position to a dead end. Could this be linked ? i have a video just unsure how to unload Thank you for any help
  6. I have a 1066 Hydro that I am servicing. When I pulled the transmission charge filter, the by-pass valve came out in pieces. I thought about attempting to reinstall it, but a couple of the pieces look damaged. Any ideas if the valve can be purchased independently? I can't seem to find any hits on one, or the filter head. Filter head part # 538653R2. Any help is appreciated!
  7. Hey, I have a international 986 with a turbo in it, We've recently just brought it to stick a scarifier behind it on the 3pl, When we brought it had been sitting outside for who knows how long with no front windscreen and no left side window so she is a bit rough, we have ordered a new windscreen and window for it. Everything except the TA works currently, The TA lever inside the cab is stuck but the cable isn't connected to the lever, I believe its just the spring inside the dash but we haven't had time to pull the dash apart right now. The main problem is that at low revs she just doesn't want to turn very well, the brakes don't want to work and the clutch is very stiff until you put it at just above mid revs (cant tell u what rpm because tach doesn't work), There's a little bit of steering in her until she just stiffens up and you cant steer her very easily you have to basically put all of your force into the steering wheel. Now the brakes do work just not very well sometimes, now I haven't tested this fully but it seems just at idle they don't push back all the way until you rev it up a little bit. Now I've read a lot about the mcv pump and there is more than 20 things to do to fix it. We're in the middle of planting right now so we don't have time to pull everything out for a little while but I thought I'd get this post up here to get as much help as possible while we cant do much. We have gone ahead and asked for a good 2nd hand MCV pump as new ones are out of the budget at the moment. Here comes the big problem according to the operators manual the transmission light should not stay on, ours does and I believe this may be an issue. I was also just wondering what kind of horses does the 986 push out with a turbo on it, I've been told the 986 turbo's are basically 1586's but I don't know how true that is. I will also post pictures when it is not muddy as I can't currently get to the tractor without getting bogged (got to love when it decides to just hit you with 80mm out of no where) If you need any more information to help me please just ask and I will get back to you as quick as possible. Thanks Jack.
  8. I recently changed the hydraulic filter in my 574. Before I did this I had no issues at all with the hydraulics. Now I can't seem to get the filter primed back. I have actuated the lift controls over and over again to try and bleed the air out of the system. I don't have any pressure and I can't hear my pump whining like it use to. Do you think it's possible I had a weak pump and finally just went out upon trying to prime back this time? I've NEVER had this much trouble after a hyd filter change. Below is a picture of the filter. Dry as a bone. Not getting anything into the housing when I start the tractor up. Thanks in advance for any insight.
  9. 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?
  10. 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
