Not sure if you have a service manual yet, but here is one anyway

No sorry, mine is missing that info too, Perhaps your dealer would be willing to provide those few pages.

They are not very commonbut I believe theyare a decent machine. The only bad thing for me would be you can't run tracks over the tires because the door is there on the left. 


Re: 743 controll valve spool seals 5/2/2012 7:36:11 PM   (Total replies: 1)

I just did a later 743 (not b series though)

It had a 4 spool (yes 4 ) monoblock valve, (Some had a greasen segmented valve) and was told the one I had was easier.

I had to remove the suction line from the pump, a smaller valve bolted to the side of the machine. The side cover between the tires. Then I could just get my hand in there to unhook the linkages and remove the boots around the spools.

You can leave the detents all assembled and slide the spool out the back ...

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 ...

Re: Questions on 3pt with pto 4/26/2011 12:03:38 PM   (Total replies: 2)

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.
