Re: 4/47 into a 900

Have you tried it, or just postulating? 4BTs and 354 Perkins engines live in other DBs. The tape measure says it is awfully close.

4/47 into a 900

Anyone done it? Will it bolt in? I have a 900 that is just plain worn out. Parts are like looking for hens teeth in the US for the 4/40. 4/47 parts are generally available, and I have a donor engine I can rebuild.

Anyone with a lathe and drill press can make a pivot pin, certainly cheaper than what it would be from Case.

The oil line is 1/8 BSP versus 1/8" NPT that is common here. The BSP is 28 tpi, NPT is 27. Sometimes you can get a NPT to seal in a BSP hole, sometimes you strip the fitting or it leaks. Adapters are available, I have also run a 1/8 NPT tap into the hole in the block to allow it to take a standard f...

RE: Kerosene aka Paraffin in 880

Winter diesel AKA #1 fuel is kerosene, or a blend of diesel/kerosene depending on where you are.

I keep a 5 gallon can of Kerosene in my heated shop as a rescue item if I gel one up on an exceptionally cold day.

RE: 1210 clutch housing

did you pop out the wedge at the rear of the cover? It is clamped in by 4 horizontal bolts that are in the little holes under the steering box. Bolt by oil filter? Starter bolts? I still like to look at a clutch while the cover is off to make sure everything is happening the way I want. For a clutch...

Re: RE: Problem with case 1494

A stuck latching valve will cause it to lift constantly A friend of mine had this problem on a 780 and more recently a 770 But with a tandem pump you are diverting all the oil away from the selectamatic when combined. I plowed a few acres this way while playing with mine and figuring out exactly wh...

RE: What is the difference in a 780 and 880 ?

The 770 from the clutch back was its own animal.

A 780 is more or less an 880 back end and engine with the 770 front frame and front axle

RE: 1490 questions

Without seeing how the front hydraulics are plumbed, it is anyone's on why. Follow the plumbing, or get some pictures to explain how the fluid flow and controls are set up. I have family in central VA. A snow monster is headed their way, calling for 24-30". It would be nice to have a way to move it....
