My brother-in-law has a CA that I am tring to help him repair so now i am seeking help! His complaint are 1) would not pull a load & 2) lift is very slow when raiseing and very fast when lowering. I determined trouble with the final drive clutch because when you try to stall the tractor it will just stop but the pto and belt drive pulley will continue to turn. After dismantling i found the inside of the axle coated with old oil and grease. After cleaning all linings, bearings and such appear fine. My ??? on this is there anything special about re-assembly that i need to know, other than to replace the 2 seals? I don"t have a manual and have been unable to find any breakdowns or diagrams on the net. On to the lift! this is the first AC i have worked on so i don"t have any idea were to even begin checking, adjusting , or replacing anything on this tractor! Sorry for the long post and thanks to anyone with any suggestions that may help me help him. Mike

Mike, I"ve been rebuilding tractors for quite a while. The one thing that I almost always do when starting on a tractor is to buy manuals. I probably have 30 IT manuals covering every tractor that I have and some that I have had. I probably have more than 30 operating manuals. And I have lots of manuals written by the manufacturer. Shelves full of manuals.

It surprises me that people will look at a repair costing hundreds and not want to spend money for an IT manual.

I have been through the final drive clutch on my CA (years ago). I don"t believe there was anything unusual in reassembly. I also have repaired the hydraulics (years ago). I recall mine didn"t work because one of the spools was missing.

Mike, buy an IT manual. There are lots of small parts in that hydraulic system. It may not work because it was reassembled wrong. You absolutely need an exploded view of everything in there. You will never regret buying a manual.

Thanks for the reply Texas Denny! I completly agree about the manual as I have all the availible ones for my 1950 cub and 1950 ferguson. I just began this project yesterday for a family member and plan to try and get a breakdown before i get into the hyd. system. Just hate to buy it myself when i will probaly never own an AC or work on another CA unless he decides not to sell it and has more problems. I was kinda hoping for a simple adjustment fix i could try (seems i never have simple fixes like that). Thanks again for the advice. Mike

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
