blacksmith Posted May 18, 2022 Share Posted May 18, 2022 I picked up this IH 3800 Industrial Backhoe Last week.. Doesn't run well. Pretty smokey with strong unburnt fuel smell.. Almost like there is a exhaust valve open.. Have valve cover gaskets ordered so can get in there and check it out and adjust the valves if needed. I just got in the Owner, parts and engine service manuals (D282).. Looking for a transmission manual and injection pump manual and if possible a brake master cylinder manual (MICO) The machine had a fine layer of what I assume is dried oil and dirt which is about 1/8" thick over everywhere under the machine. I've taken a 4400psi pressure washer to it and the stuff is stuck on really, really well.. I started to think it's some sort of undercoating.. I have never seen such tenacious grime is that is the case.. I then went thru and greased every fitting I could find with Mobil CMM moly grease. The paint is really nice and shiny under the stuff. I am in need of a transmission filter and hydraulic filter. Any known dealers for Industrial IH products left? I started a facebook group.. There is nearly no information on these really cool machines.. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
