How do you disengage the hydrostat transmission on a case 1070, for towing. The tractor turns over but will not start. Tried using ether but still wont run. Engine still turns over fine. Checked the air and fuel filter and they look fine. Any ideas? Ran fine at the beginning of the day then started to sputter/ lost power then died, since then it hasn"t started.

it's not a tranny problem. you can't pull start the powershifts. i had the same running issue today with the 970. when i blew out the fuel lines it started but still missed. so tonight i found the "diesel 911" as is printed on the jug. it is mos likely a water(condensation) problem and ice built up. that diesel stuff gets rid of the water . also i would drain the tank next time it gets near empty just to try to get the dirt and gunk out. you'd be supprised at what comes out
hope this helps you

P.S.: you can pick up the "diesel 911" at any gas station that sells diesel or at farm supply stores.

Everyone says it's a fuel problem, but ether should still make it fire for alittle bit but it does nothing!

Ether only works if there is spark. If there is not enough deisel for ignition you won't get a spark and will not fire the ether.

take fuel line loose . if no flow or weak then blow line out and blow air back into tank. run tractor back to shop and finish cleaning there. good luck

The 1070 was made either in standard shift or powershift, since you called it a hydrostatic I am assuming it is a powershift. The powershift on a 1070 is independant of the 4 speed portion, it is not a hydrostatic unit by any definition. The unit can be towed by simply putting the 4 speed shifter in neutral, but you will have no steering and hard brakes. It sounds like a fuel problem and if I were you rather than put yourself and others at risk , i would fix the problem on the spot, or have someone with the proper equipment move it for you.
