Re: 885 Topping Up Gearbox Oil

Someone has connected a hydraulic return to the filler plug. The filler plug must not be used as a hydraulic return as the transmission lubrication system will be by passed in doing this. The end result can be damage to some bearings and gears in the gear box. Remove the quick coupler and connector...

Re: 885 Topping Up Gearbox Oil

The Operators Manual I told you about, gives you all information's needed in order to use and maintain your tractor. Get yourself a correct Ops. Manual, as soon as possible. Milky oil is because there is water in the oil. The water is usually getting into the gear box via damaged gear lever boots o...

Re: 885 Topping Up Gearbox Oil

At least your oil looks very clean. Is it the same when the engine has been ran for a while? It is clean isn't it! My old MF135 always had milky oil in the gearbox and it was fine. This 885 is new to me and I'm still discovering things about it - some of which are a bit 'mysterious' like the super ...

Re: 885 Topping Up Gearbox Oil

The following is a link to the parts catalogue page that shows the gear box oil filler, a 90 degree pipe on the right hand side of the PTO housing https://partstore.caseih.com/us/parts-search.html#epc::mr51083ar1043742 The Operators Manual you have is not for tractors with Q-cab, but for a so calle...

885 Topping Up Gearbox Oil

There is an inspection glass on the side of my 885 (see photo) which may or may not be indicating the gearbox oil level - which is low. The 885 user manual I have shows the filler plug and dipstick on top of the gearbox. These are not accessible to me because mine has a Sekura cab. Is the indicator ...

Re: 885 Rev Counter Cable Replacement

If you remove the steering wheel and then the screws around the side of the black dash top you can lift the dash top enough to put your hand through and undo the cable from the back of the Rev counter. The other end I seem to remember being self explanatory to undo but it’s a while since I’ve done ...

885 Rev Counter Cable Replacement

Bought a 885 and only realised when I got it home that the rev counter doesn't work :( So, I purchased a cable from Barclay Williams and am now faced with the daunting task of fitting it. My 885 has a cab, so there's all that housing around the steering column. I have no idea where to begin. Is ther...

Re: 885 Cold Start Wing Nut

Battery condition / charging of battery can be an issue we found. Our 885 struggled to start, switched to an alternator as the dyno wasnt wired in right anyway and re-wiring it all, after that it turns over alot better. So deffo check the battery condition. Also had to re do our earth points as the...

Combination of cold start wing nut, 30 seconds pre-heat and... a fully charged battery, makes a big difference!

Re: 885 - Terrible Starter

It is not a difficult task to remove and fit new seals to the cold start unit. Remove the complete unit from the fuel injection pump by undoing the large nut. Place unit in a vice and part it by undoing the small nut and then carefully remove the internal parts noting the location order. When assem...

Re: 885 - Terrible Starter

In Shropshire it’s known as a hand throttle! :lol: When you removed the cold start on the injector pimp was it a big job? Mine is free and works but leaks when turned to the cold start position. I may try and resolve it if it’s not a huge job. Also another little trick is wind it over with your han...

Re: 885 Cold Start Wing Nut

There are no adjustments for the cold start device. If it is left in the engaged position the automatic timing is inoperative. There can be numerous reasons for slow starting on an engine that is fifty years old - cranking speed,compression, state of fuel injectors,timing or a combination of these ...
