D17 Series III Remote Hydraulic/Transport Valve

Report to Moderator


I have a D17 Series III with the single remote and "Transport Valve".

The 3 pt hitch works fine (doesn't drop when loaded).

Problem is that I decided to borrow my buddy's New Holland haybine to cut my hay... I can only hook up one hose, so I tried them both until I got the one that would lift it - the problem is it won't lift it far enough - the cylinder isn't even half way extended and the skid shoes on the haybine drag on the ground, so I don't want to take it on the road.

I tried rotating the "transport valve" below the remote outlet, but that didn't seem to do anything - it acts the same with the valve screwed all the way in or out... I don't think this is normal, but it's the first time I'm trying to use the remote, so I'm not sure.

The other thing is my buddy has a JD 620 & uses pioneer ends on the hoses for his JD, but the guts of the remote on my D17 has a nipple on it, so can I use the same ends he uses or do I need to use an end with a nipple on it too?

I read the other posts about the hose from the 3pt hitch lift cylinder leaking, but my levels are all pretty steady, so I'm not sure that is my problem, that's why I'm thinking it could be related to the transport valve.

Any ideas?

Just re-read your post and the JD 620 issue stuck me- he might have a very low pressure cylinder on the Haybine. Your best bet would be to set up your own high pressure cylinder with one hose and use it when you borrow his equipment. Cheaper than having to buy him a new one when you blow his apart.

Your problem is that your hooking up single acting hyds to a double acting cylinder and doing so will not work. You lift it to a point that it is compressing the hyd fluid or tring to compress it. It would work if you unhook the one hose but then you will get dirt into the cylinder unless you put a vent cap on to where the hose was

Thanks for the info - I wondered about that...

Do you happen to know if the remote should work with the transport valve screwed all the way in or out or both?!?

Mine works no matter what position the transport valve is in.

From the Operator manual: Transport valve- All single-acting TRACTION BOOSTER remote valves must be connected to the transport valve outlet. The knob on the valve must be turned out as far as possible for automatic operation of tools connected to the lift arms. The knob must be turned in for operation of ram when automatic operation is not desired. Regarding old's comment about removing the hose and installing a vent- if you can't find a screened vent you can drill a small hole in a pipe plug, insert a cotter key. Same as you find in some gearboxes.

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]
