The right brake on a new to me 2590 doesn't hold a prime and has a metal on metal sound when I do use that brake. It works, just noisy. Hydraulics and shifting all seem fine so I'm not sure if the disks have dissolved or it is just worn out. After the crops are in, I'm planning to dig into this.
The I&T manual shows the steps and can get the o-ring kit and disks from C-IH. I found 1370rod post on here about leaving the wheel on the axle.
Drain fluid, support the cab, pull the axle and replace the brakes. Liquid gasket to reseal the axle.
I have a few questions:
Does the brake housing just pull right out once the axle is off?
How long should the 5/8" bolt guide pins stick out of the housing before starting to pull the axle off?
Can I get at the suction screen to check and clean it once the axle is off?
Is this job as straight forward as it looks?
Any tips or tricks to share? I have split IH 560, 856 size stuff in the past and have an overhead hoist and skidsteer with forks to remove the wheel/axle assembly.
