Allis 8050 torque limiter

Report to Moderator

Yesterday my AC 8050 suddenly lost all hydro, pto and transmission power. I believe that it may be from a bad torque limiter, since there was also some oil coming out from a hole just below the flywheel. Is is common for the torque limiter to fail suddenly as it did, or could it be some other problem? Also is there any temporary fix to get the tractor out of the field? And how hard is it to change the torque limiter, does the tractor need to be split?

My 7060 did the same thing last year. all of a sudden everything stopped while mowing with a discbine. it was the torque limiter that was bad ,winched it on trailer and brought it to mechanic , I thought it was reasonable to fix total came to just over $800.00 including trucking.--ray

that seems real reasonable, our local dealership figured it would be $1200.00 + to fix.

its mostlikely the torquelimiter it has to be split at the engine the oil could be coming from the rear main seal or the front trans seal or both. no temp fix that i know of i just winched them on a truck but you will have to pull it you will have some steering but hard. pulling a long way isnt good all the gears are turning with no psi lube good luck

We towed it to the edge of the field , is it better to haul it to the shop or can it be done in the field. Last year we split a jd 7810 in the field to replace a seal and it was not to bad. Can you replace the seals in the trans or rear main when the tractor split, or do you having to remove the cab, and or additional parts? Also any other recommendations on things to fix or replace while we have it apart? I read somewhere that there is a cover plate that will prevent the oil from getting to the torque limiter if a seal was to go again. Have you heard of that? thanks a bunch 856 puller, CarKayor

yes there is a sheild kitthat goes over the torquelimiter i would change it they get cracks around the bolts. you can change seals when split. as far as spliting in the feild i wouldnt do it but i guess it could be done. if this is a mfwd they can be a pain to roll together on cement let alone dirt
