Re: DB1210 surging RPM

I did mark the gears as per the manual but was confused about the original marks. Thanks for clearing this up for me.

Re: DB1210 surging RPM

I finally got a chance to look at this tractor. The oil in the injection pump reservoir was over full of oil mixed with diesel. I drained it all and replaced it with fresh oil. After running it a couple hours it began to lose power. I broke the injector lines and found only two of the four lines wer...

Re: DB1210 surging RPM

That's on me. I remember the mechanic warning me to keep up with this oil and I completely forgot about it. I'll give it a try and see what happens. Regards,

Re: DB1210 surging RPM

The pump was serviced with oil when I reinstalled it but has not been looked at since. I'm 500 miles from the tractor so I'll have to check this all out next time I'm at it's location.

Re: DB1210 surging RPM

I have not serviced the oil in the injector pump. I do recall the mechanic saying that the pump had no oil in it when I brought it in to be rebuilt years ago. I'll read up on it..

DB1210 surging RPM

I'm trying to determine where I need to focus my attention on a DB 1210. I had the injector pump rebuilt about 10 years ago. Last year I had to have the fuel tank rebuilt because the previous owner had used a "slosh" type sealer to coat the inside of the tank.The coating broke free, clogging the sys...

Re: Leaking steering column DB 1210

Thanks guys. Sounds like a good plan to just order a complete valve and eliminate the possible pitfalls of trying to replace the seal alone.

Re: Leaking steering column DB 1210

Can that seal be purchased for replacement or is a new valve required?

Leaking steering column DB 1210

I was plowing today and started noticing oil coming out of the top of my steering column. It just keeps getting worse. Is this a simple seal that can be replaced or is this an indication that the orbital motor is bad? The tractor still steers normally.

Re: Source for 1490 Radiator

I found a radiator for a 1690 that had been cleaned and tested for a fair price. The only difference between the two radiators is the 1690 has taller mounting legs on the bottom. I cut these down to the height of the 1490 and I'm back in business. Thanks for the suggestions I appreciate the help.

Source for 1490 Radiator

The radiator on my DB 1490 has failed and my local radiator shop is quoting me $900.00 to re-core it. I've hit all the sources I have to find a replacement. According to the Case IH website the part number I need is K304373, so far no one has a replacement. Would the radiator from some other model o...

Re: Anyone replaced/simplified Selectamatic hydraulics?

I finally finished this modification today. I wish I had done it long ago. With the old system my tractor couldn't lift my 6 foot thrasher off the ground. Now it lifts quickly all the way up to the travel lock position. It also holds position very well. Once again ollek and cossyrec show us that the...

Re: Anyone replaced/simplified Selectamatic hydraulics?

Thanks ollek, I've looked at the spacer under my Cessna valve and don't find the plug you referenced but I understand what we're trying to accomplish here. I made a "power beyond" plate and installed it above the Cessna valve to power other hydraulic systems. I would imagine that I can just "tee" in...

Re: Anyone replaced/simplified Selectamatic hydraulics?

I've followed this thread with a lot of interest. I've had similar issues with the selectamatic chest valve and I've finally decided to bypass the chest valve and operate the three point arms with the Cessna valve as ollek explained above. My 990 has a bypass filter housing in the location that was ...

Re: New to the forum with a 780.

Good luck with the project. They can be trying and rewarding all at the same time. I've got a 990 and a 1210 that keep me scratching my head. But they outpull any modern tractor of the same horsepower. They were well ahead of their time. My 1210 was built in 1974 and still plowed 25 acres of ground ...
