Re: Mini Skid Re-Powered with Loncin Chinese Copy Engine - Low Charge Amps 7/30/2014 1:32:03 PM   (Total replies: 1)

My Launtop LT620 engine in my Bobcat 440b is also a copy of the Honda GX620.  It also had the 3A charging circuit.  The original Kohler Magnum was rated at 25A.

I looked at buying the parts from Honda to do the 20A upgrade.  The best prices I saw were on eBay.  Buying from Honda was going to be expensive - somewhere in the neighbourhood of $400.

In the end, I cheated and put a 55A Denso belt-driven alternator on.  Cost me about $100 all in.  ...

Re: Mini Bobtach Adapter - Pre-463 to S70/MT-5X Type 7/24/2014 6:45:17 PM   (Total replies: 1)
Hi farmall, looked at the QTK adapter. It would require some framework to be built behind it in order to turn it into an adapter. Also, it is a full size Bobtach setup(44" wide), not the mini style (35" wide). I already have a full size Bobtach adapter. But that is a very good price for what you are getting, best price I have seen. Cheers - SR

Mini Bobtach Adapter - Pre-463 to S70/MT-5X Type 7/7/2014 6:36:44 AM   (Total replies: 2)

In my ongoing quest to keep my old 440b as current as possible, I built up another Bobtach adapter.  I have been wanting to do this one for a while, and the stars finally aligned.

We have a local rental shop that rents MT-52 attachments for very reasonable rates, and I have had my eye on the trencher attachment that they have.  I have had some interest from some of my customers in having some trenchs dug, so I did not want anything standing in way from doing ...

Re: 2004 T-180 Floating before applying down pressure. 7/14/2014 6:30:44 AM   (Total replies: 0)

Sounds like a problem with one of the load holding valves in the loader control.  There is a valve in the output port of the control that prevents the load from dropping when you have the bucket raised and go to raise it some more.  With an open center hydraulic system, it takes a split second for the system to react to an incoming load and build pressure, hence without the holding valves, the load will drop a bit before it begins to ...

Item 7 is the boom lift spool, items 11 &12 are the load check valves (load holding vlaves) and the seats.  There are 2 sets shown, the ones on the right are for the bucket tilt, the ones on the ...

If you are just trying to keep dirt and moisture out, I would use a sandwich bag and a rubber band, one set per hose.  Put the bag over the hose and secure it in place with the rubber band.  This will catch any oil drips as well.

If you need something more robust than this, you can buy JIC plugs from a hydraulic shop to screw into the ends of the hoses.

I don't mean to burst your bubble, but in my opinion, trying a different oil is just a band-aid solution.  It might work, but for how long? And what else could get wrecked the process? 

You need to get to the bottom of the issue to fix it right.  10w30 is the right oil for these old machines, so it needs to operate with it.
