The 870 has external dry brakes, no diff lock and unless someone has had it apart and put new C4 stuff in it should have all sintered brass clutch plates in it. I'm not saying that could not have been done but all 70 series of that vintage had sintered brass plates, including the large C4 plate, not till much later was the gray fibre plates used and I'm not sure the others were ever subed to the early tractors, the fact that the failure is heat related leads me to believe you have pump wear. Pay a competent shop to perform a flo test on the system, with one hookup right at the remotes the entire system can be diagnosed including the power shift clutch leakage. Anything else is speculation. . mEl This post was edited by mEl at 14:48:11 05/06/13.
