    MF 240 stuck gear problem

    If you can spin the stick it's going to jam. I could never "make" it jam, darn well would jam in forward gear when facing a building or fence too. Limped it home one time in 4th gear to unstick it. Hired help and a crash box transmission won't mix on a good day. Good thing those 240s are so...

    MF 240 stuck gear problem

    I eliminated my 240 gear sticking issues by loosening the nut on the shifter lever and rotating it slightly. My shifter was "crooked" and it would jam, especially during a 4th to R shift in low range. I assume years of use caused it to pivot a little. I shift it a lot when I am using it...

    25 Acres worth buying hay equipment?

    This is true. I hay to feed cattle, which in turn generate manure which gets spread on the field. The fields that get manured every year yield very well, the ones that don't, need fertilized, limed reseeded.

    Exactly. I mowed one field 9-10pm, was baling it 11 am the next morning. Was a clear windy night. I do use a tedder, mainly since it gains me a few hours and ensures it's all mixed uniformly (not dryish on top, wet on bottom)

    Puma-54 Snowblower chain stretching

    Chain wears out, faster if not oiled. Old chain will have a master link with a clip. You can shorten the chain a couple links and put it back on, but keep in mind a well worn chain will eventually ruin the sprockets. Depending on how long the chain is, two links short might be too much, you...

    What is a New Holland TL80A hydraulic oil equivalent?

    Universal Tractor Fluid is what I would look for, then see what specs the pail claims it meets, than cross reference to your WSM. I've run UTF for years in an older wet brake / IPTO / remote hyd tractor with no issues. I do still run OEM oil in the wet clutch tractor. 303 is cheap for a...

    Running a Single Acting cylinder on a double acting valve.

    Not sure on how much real harm is done for a few seconds on relief, I did find that light touch on lever just allows the oil to flow "out" and not get pressurized the opposite other way.

    Running a Single Acting cylinder on a double acting valve.

    Double acting valve with float feature handles single acting cylinder easy, I have a wagon hoist, just put lever in float and it drops on it's own. I have used in on a double auto cancel valve and the only way to lower it with out deadheading/loading the used port was to just lightly hold the...

    Case-ih 485 injection pump parts

    It's 3 cylinder 100%. IH didn't really stick to HP/ cylinder in the model numbers for those world wide tractors.

    How old a tractor would you go if you require a front end loader?

    There are several versions of the 5610: 5610, 5610II and 5610S The 5610S is the newest, solid blue and New Holland decals, "S" on the radiator side panels. It was a very basic 2wd, 8x2 manual trans 70 PTO HP tractor. (The older ones had a smaller engine and 62 PTO HP, but could have manual...

    IH 674 Diesel fuel tank

    I'd check the vent, might be blocked. I'd put an air line against the vent and see.

    IH 674 Diesel fuel tank

    The tube you should see when you open the fuel cap runs to the bottom of the tank, if you look at the bottom of the tank you will see an unused looking fitting, that is the vent. I over filled the tank one time and fuel was coming out that way.

    CK2610 cold start… ALOT of smoke?

    White smoke like that perfect normal. It will be worse if your cold start assist isn't working good, i.e. glow plugs. If it started it's likely fine. I had powerstroke with 2/8 working glow plugs and it would blow white smoke heavy until it touched off. Good batteries and starter :-) Got the...
