Re: newbie with a 170 skid steer 6/27/2009 10:13:21 AM   (Total replies: 1)

Any good hydraulic shop will be able to match up the cylinder packings, that on is no big deal. Those early models of deere where made by the company that now makes Mustang (owatanna,  sp?) so you may be able to source some parts there.

Also alot of chains, sprockets and such are available from suppliers like Browning, not sure how your brakes are designed, but if its a simple disc brake setup on a shaft some place, they may be able to help. If its a wet disc clutch pack then ...

You should be able to find another master cylinder and wheel cylinders that will work if the originals are no longer available. Brake shoes may be tougher to come by, but I'm sure something cold be made to work if needed. Still take the parts to a few auto parts shops, parts may be common off the shelf stuff. Failing that try Mustang and let us know how you make out.

T190 engine miss on 3 and 4 cylinder, track tension cyl and more 7/16/2014 8:11:18 PM   (Total replies: 1)
I got this 3750hr t190 in for a customer. He bought it as a basket case. Someone put a head on it, But never bothered to clean the very dirty rad. He took the turbo off and had me put on a new one it did not need imo, before deciding its beyond him. Only running on 2 cylinders. 3 and 4 never get over 140 degrees on the exhaust manifold. Checked compression today and we are spread between 520 and 400. The 400 is one of the cylinders that is hitting. I swapped the injectors end for end and two ...

Blowby does not seem too bad and is reasonably smooth, not like one cylinder is real bad. I have no idea if the head they put on was rebuilt. I hooked the injectors up to the lines and they are completely worn out. So we are going to try a set to see if it will start running on all 4 again. Yes the spread is supposed to be only 10% When you head went there was no compression? or a mild leak between cylinders? How about into the cooling system?

Re: 909 backhoe on an 863 bobcat 7/21/2014 8:31:24 PM   (Total replies: 1)
Pretty sure you will need more beef then that, There is a lot of force away and towards the machine on those arms as you dig. Back as you try to get the bucket in the ground and forward as you try to rip rocks stumps and tough dirt out. There is a reason they make the arms that big. On most or the 909 the 2" trailer coupler on the back of the arms had the balls pulled right through it. Also a good solid connection to the frame saves your loader boom pins.

Re: 98 863 main control valve removal HELP 3/23/2009 5:46:17 PM   (Total replies: 0)

You already did the hard part, you might as well change the seals, the detent balls are a bear, but should be replaced when the valve is out as they tend to rust and the float function no longer locks on. Sometimes you need to butcher up a wrench or to to get all the fitting good and tight in the minimal space provided.


Re: Bobcat Electrical Attachment Hookup Explained In Detail !!! 10/31/2011 7:52:41 PM   (Total replies: 1)

That is what I put on my 185, the 7 /14 pin combo kit.

But I hate it. The problem is when using the landscape rake when reversing the loader I also reverse the hydraulic flow on the rake to make the drum turn the proper direction to rake while traveling backwards.

The problem is the d*mn  control kit override my selection of reverse hydraulic flow as soon as I touch the switch to angle the rake and kick the flow back into forward. Making a mess of my yard ...

I'm not certain, however I believe you would still have to buy the #4 combination 7/14pin harness and you may have to remove your non combination harness to plug the new harness in.

I just tapped into the the wire harness to access the left handle switches and made my own harness with relays and run it out to a trailer plug by the hydraulic couplers on the boom. This gives me 4 momentary hots to control attachments along with a steady ground.

I intend to avoid ...
