Re: Bobcat 773G Turbo Overheating 5/30/2009 1:28:52 PM   (Total replies: 2)

Mine the temp guage is cafuey, have change the sensor, computer and the guage panel and still, after a couple hours the guage will begin to float up and down, ( it moves too fast to be warming and cool of that much that quick, say every 10 seconds) often getting to the yellow, and ocasionally to the red, causing a shutdown. I have installed a standard guage in the machine and the temp is rock steady on the new guage.

I would install a separate guage to see if you really have a ...

Glad to hear it was a minor problem, Mine is getting worse, going to try removing the sender from the tstat housing and just letting it dangle in the wind near the engine, perhaps glow plugs will still function near normal this way, if it gets a little heat from the motor. Putting a standard 2” temp guage back in the hole. When the stock guage shows hot pulling the trottle baack to a idle will drop the temp just about as fast as the revs come down. Almost like it is feeding back form ...

All you need is to T the pressure and returns together, with a check valve in the cross over line that won't allow pressure from the loader to escape into the return line.

But when the loaders flow is suddenly cut off and the motor on the 3pt becomes the pump driven by inertia, then the oil coming from the return line on the motor can cross back into the pressure line and circulate through the motor allowing it to wind down slowly instead of being forced to a stop.

If ...

Yes that works also, and I guess you could adjust the relief on the return side to open at a low pressure and get the same effect as my cross over system.

That is kinda a pet peeve on my newer brusher. When I lift the boom I steal the oil flow from the cutter and put it to the loader cylinders.

This cause the cutter to lose momentum as the return flow from the motor comes up to relief pressure before it can cross over, where my home made ...

And so it goes with alarms, often they are more trouble then what they monitor. Yet I'd feel terrible if I ignored one and it was'nt a false.

Good to here there is no real problem. (aside from the minor wiring glitch)

As for the manual, I wish you luck, I had never heard of a heston skidsteer either though I'm aware of their ag line. Try ebay and internet seaches, post wanteds on the bulletin boards.

Also a hand held temp gun is worth it weight in gold to see if the light is accurate.

Kinda slow under the rad cap should be sufficient.


Re: hesston 4/3/2010 8:32:59 AM   (Total replies: 2)

When does the light and alarm go off? After 10 or 20 mins of operating or right away? I wonder if its a problem with the sensor/sender for the alarm or a bad wire that has had the insulation worn through and is touching ground, or it could be a bad ground in the wire harness.

Anyway you can fit another guage or pick up a hand held temp gun to verify how warm the engine is when the alarm goes off?

The coolant is normal looking I guess? if you blow a head gasket it ...

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.
