IHC_1470 Posted January 22 Author Share Posted January 22 I would not want to go very far steering it the way I did it that is for sure. It worked once I got on to it. The trick was keeping the draw bar between the two tractors relatively straight. Have not got there quite yet but it would appear that the splines are gone in the pressure plate. No chunks in the oil and I got the bottom cover of the speed transmission. The steering pump is external on a 2+2 and when I pulled it you could hold the shaft and turn the input shaft into the transfer case and with nothing turning at the pump drive. I have the stands under the motor and range transmission and I am building a stand to hold the speed transmission up. I have always worked on that transmission sitting on the floor but I am getting too old to bend over or at least that is what I am telling myself. Have not pulled the top cover off the range transmission yet to look at the park lock gear. Park was not holding real well and once in awhile it would roll when in park. I have a new park lock lever and spring to put in the cover and will have to see what the gear looks like at that time. It was also getting air in the hydraulic system and I was having to run it about 5 gallons over full to compensate so need to put some new seals on the suction tube. Nothing has ever been done to the range transmission or rear end so wondering with it approaching 13000 hours if I should look at the bearings. Like I said in the beginning it is somewhat of a money pit at this point. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
