TommyW Posted December 7, 2021 Share Posted December 7, 2021 1985 IH 5088 2wd 4400 hours. When parked, it ran and operated fine (I was told this model had a problem with one side of the gears). A couple years later, I started it, but it wouldn't go. As I let the clutch out, it made a slight impulse forward (at the very top of the pedal), but that's all. It didn't put a noticeable load on the engine, and it would do it in any gear I tried. I tried it with the system cold and again after letting it run over a half hour. Power steering works. There's pressure on the brakes--since it won't go, I can't say much more about the brakes. I did jack the tractor up to make sure the wheels would turn. I changed the three hydraulic filters, and the fluid level is fine. Anyone have a clue about what might be the problem? You can tell I'm grasping at straws. BTW, no red equipment dealers near, so asking a local dealer is out. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
