IH dresser TD7C

Hello Robbie, since you said "Torque Converter" I will assume you have a Powershift transmission. Per the IH operators manual specs are as follows...

Transmission and torque converter (combined) hold 28 quarts(7 Gallons) of Hy-Tran oil.

Rear end/brake housing holds 42 quarts(10.5 Gallons) of Hy-Tran oil.

Final drive housings hold 10 quarts(2.5 Gallons) of 140 weight Gear oil Per side. Or in colder climates 90 weight.

Hydraulic reservoir holds 10 Gallons of Hy-Tran oil.


I am unable to find brake wear criteria in the IH service manual. Just talks about adjustments.

Robbie, when I did my lining (100C) we used .141 thick on the lining material. I measured a non-worn area at the time and came up with .141-.147. There is no specification given in the service manual for the lining thickness. It must be very close, I did that in the early '80's, still working excellent.

I have an update on the brake and steering clutch lining for the IH 100, 125, TD7, TD8, C and E models. I am having the lining replaced on my 100C, in the above post I stated the lining to be .141-.147, I purchased one lining just to get the measurements, the lining I purchased measured out at .186 but that is with the adhesive on the back, I did not know they came with adhesive on them, measuring just the lining I came up with .147-.148. I purchased the lining off of Ebay, however it came from FrictionWorksLLC, 4598 Whittlesey Road, Norwalk, OH, phone is 419-6771167 for anyone wishing to do their own relining. The shoe material is the same size for both size tractors. I am not into bonding my own linings, I am having it done by a brake material bonding shop in San Jose Calif. who is supplying the lining. This same company did the relining in the '80's for me. I will say the lining I took out still measures .137-.141, one of the linings is starting to delaminate from a shoe so I am having all redone. Wet brakes seem to not wear at all. I am posting the bonding instructions sent with the brake shoe. Michael Brewster is Friction Works.

eons ago, when available, the wet disc pads were bonded to a backer,which used 4 rivets to the actuator. Dealer had TSB and kit,so as not to destroy sun disc,between de laminated and  100% no go.Along with internal mods to extend life.

Yes turning brakes are std 340 dry.     $$$$$$,project getting to the $600 repair.
