Case 1370 No-Go

Just posted a message about DC Brakes, got a 1370 issue as well. I just moved back to 150 yr old family farm and bought granddad's old tractors. One is a '74 1370 that I spent a lot of time in as a kid. Anyway, previous owner just died and he knew what happened to it and nobody else does, but it simply will not move. It starts and runs like a champ. But when you depress the clutch, no belch or huff in the engine like I remember. With clutch in or out, you can change gear ranges freely, no grind, just nothing. Power steering works. Three point arms raise but do not lower. If these basic symptoms give anybody out there any clue where I should start, your help is greatly appreciated!!

The Torque Limiter could be bad but more than likely not in this situation because in these tractors it is driving the hyd. pump also. If hyd's work the limiters are OK. If this is a very late sunset or white tractor and I bet it is, the hollow shaft driving the Power Shift and hyd. pump has broke right in front of the Power Shift. This does not happen very often, I have only seen this occur 3 times in 40 yrs. Not a bad fix, split tractor between trans and torque tube and its right there. Rod

If your tractor grunts as you say that would indicate the Powershift is running and your problem could be a bit deeper. Grunting is caused by overlap in clutch engagement /disengagement and if present should have a good torque limiter feeding the powershift. A good healthy grunt when clutch is pushed in and a soft ringing would indicate planetaries running, listen for that and any other noises it makes.

Your problem sounds like the torque limiter, you split that at the engine to repair. Rod.

I think you hit the nail on the head.We had a couple of failures like that with a little more smoke coming out of the pipe.

Thanks Rod and Turbo. This is what I had hoped after looking at the service manual. This tractor runs about 185HP on a dyno, when it is apart can you give me a rough idea of what shops charge to update the powershift to 90 series? Should I worry about this or since it has held up for this long it is likely OK?

Torque limiters drive the hydraulic pumps on a 74 1370. If you have steering, the limiter is OK. The shaft from the limiters through the pump drive breaks just before the sun gear that drives the powershift planetaries. You can remove the LH cover for the extra hydraulic pump and see if the powershift is turning. If you are lucky, just need to replace shaft if nothing went through gearing.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
