I have an old Hough H60B articulate loader. Its probably from the early 70's vintage.
Transmission has always been slightly weak. On the hottest days of the year the machine runs great its responsive and has great power. As the outdoor temps cool it (torque converter) gets sluggish and weak whereas high gear is unusable. It improves as the machine warms but still not great. I have it in the shop to attempt to look at this but not sure where to go. I am thinking its a restriction in the charging pump circuit or maybe just a weak torque converter.
Several times this fall after I started the machine it would not move. After shifting forward to reverse 6-8 time it slowly inched forward and began to move more and more until it moved normally. After I got it moving it was fine for the rest of the day. Not sure if that is related to the overall weak transmission or another problem.
The manual explains how it works and how to rebuild it just doesn't say much about troubleshooting. Can these torque converters be rebuilt? Is it O rings and gaskets or what really wears in a torque converter?
