New Holland LS170 2001 5/6/2012 7:39:50 PM   (Total replies: 2)
Hi guys, I have been a member here for a few years and finally bought a machine to rebuild. It has been sitting around for a while because of a dead engine and then parts were taken to keep another 2 machines going so I'm at this stage I am trying to find a wrecker or second hand parts, preferably in Australia. I have had a good look at Messics for new parts and Wegners in Meyerstown have a few of the larger things I need. If it helps to match parts for this machine to another model that ...

Hi again, sorry for the slow response finally got this sorted I hope.

It looks like I need to use internet explorer as the best way to upload edited text and photos, when using firefox I am unable to access the correct window to upload this information.

Will have a go at uploading this pic, I know its not pretty but it was for the right price, a lot of the missing parts are on a couple of pallets behind the machine.

It is now rolling on a set of 12 x 16.5 wheels, not ...

The rebuild is progressing well. I have bought most of the parts I need from a dealer in the states which should be here in about 6-7 weeks, more details to follow when they arrive. I did find a wrecker that is wrecking a LS170 here in Victoria (about 3hrs drive) but the costs of the parts was more than double. Found a few large and small cracks in the mainframe/boom so it looks like my brother will be doing some welding while it is apart. Does anyone have a good detailed picture or drawing ...

Time for some more photos, we found the easiest way to remove the tapered pins, with a home made puller.  Bill (my brother) made this from some selected inventory and it works great, but be very careful when the pin lets go its like a projectile.

The attached pictures have a lot more details and this one puller fits all of the pins on the boom. Fit the puller as per the photos and tighten, sometimes just this tension is enough to pop the pin free or tighten the puller and then ...

Hi Ken, thanks for the link.

Unfortunately I bought the same version frm tradebit nearly 2 months ago, oh well.

It does however have a few blank pages in the electrical section, does anyone know if this is missing some electrical or wiring diagrams?

Re: L175 N844LT engine 2.2lt 1/9/2013 9:59:45 PM   (Total replies: 2)
Well, some good news and bad news. Pulled most of it apart, cylinder head and vavle train all look real good. There are a few scuff marks on the back side on number 3 bore, when we pulled out the piston both of the compression ring gaps are in line with the scuff marks, this could be the cause of low compression/blow by etc. The scuff marks are only on this bore, just need to borrow a inside micrometer to check the wear on all of the bores. May get away with a hone and a new set of rings or ...

L175 N844LT engine 2.2lt 12/26/2012 3:51:53 PM   (Total replies: 1)
I just purchased a non-running N844LT engine out of a 2008 model L175 (thanks again Tazza) It appears this engine was replaced with a new crate engine in April 2010, it has been sitting in a dealers factory since then. I assume it has some serious problems otherwise they would not have gone to the trouble of replacing it, but at a quick look over we can't see the obvious reason for the transplant. We have not dismantled it yet, just carefully looking for the problem. The engine turns over ...
