    Default IH 444 3ph/draft control lever removal?

    Anyone happen to know how these levers are removed? My shop manual doesn't cover this. It does cover removing the shaft from the case/reservior, but not just the levers. I would guess that other models are similar to the 444.

    There's one nut on the end of the shaft. I removed that nut, thinking that the levers would slide off the end, but they don't budge. Tried prying a bit, but don't want to bend or break anything. Are these pressed on?

    I'm trying to get the right brake housing off, but there's a big suction line for the aux hyd pump in the way. Can't get wrenches on to remove the hyd hose because this lift quadrant is in the way. Arrrghh.

    I don't know if this will help, but here is an exploded view of your quadrant, from Case/IH. Looks like it may not come off as one unit, but rather in sections.

    Hope this helps..!!

    What exactly does the draft control do?

    You need to remove plate under seat, on top of hydraulic housing and dismantle from inside.

    Briefly, draft control is a means of controlling soil engaging implements to give a constant depth whilst providing some weight transfer from implement onto tractor rear wheels to aid traction, ( this statement assumes constant soil conditions, but in reality conditions in a field can vary and as such so does the draft force on implements and tractor for a given lever setting, the operator can adjust his draft control lever to compensate).
