    Default hydro filter

    OK, I guess I will start this forum also. My two Ingersoll tractors are hydraulic driven. Not a hydrstac trans like most tractors, but true hydraulic. It uses about 12 qts of 15w40 motor oil instead of hydro fluid. Now here’s my problem. There is no filter in the system. With the dusty envroment it lives in, and with the detachable hydro powered attachments there is a lot of chances to get dirt in there.. I would like to put a filter into the system. Now here’s the big problem, I don’t have a lot of room. The return line is ¾” and runs from the cooler in front, to the tank right behind the motor. This is only about 2.5ft. It is low on the tractor near where the lift rod goes to the front attachments, so size is a big factor. Any ideas? Any sources for a small filter that may work? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me

    For less than $100 you should be able to plumb in a remote oil filter, anywhere you have room, (firewall, frame, etc). I'd opt for the largest filter you can get, a friend of mine put on a remote filter that takes 2 PH8A filter, (~1qrt/filter).

    A friend of mine has a Case446. I think it's a 1977, he needs a new front axle, his is bent. Any idea of how much they cost ?
    If your fuel pump dies you can use a electric one. That is what we did to his.As for that filter ,I don't know. We just changed the hose your talking about,that was fun- there is no room.

    Oh ya, so you know my problem. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img] Mines not as bad as your friends, mine has a single cyl, but still. Also I will send you a e mail address in a PM of a guy I got some parts off of. He may have what you are looking for.

    Paul, here's the link for JC Whitneys probably could be found in a local auto parts store.

    Paul, can you explain what you mean by that statement? Does your Ingersoll not have a hydraulic pump?...a hydraulic motor? I'm puzzled at what the difference is. Some manufacturers even call power steering using a hydraulic cylinder "hydrostatic" so I am just assuming it's a general expression that means the power transfer uses liquid instead of a mechanical link or electrical link.

    From what I have seen most hydrostatic trans have the pump, and motor all built in one unit. This has a pump on the motor, and a motor on the transaxle, like a hydro tiller would be.

    I see what you mean now. Since there is a hydraulic pump on my engine that supplies fluid for the FEL, remotes, and hydraulic lift, I wouldn't call them a hydrostatic transmission either. Sounds reasonable to me...[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Jinman,
    But I could be wrong also.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img] Basically, it has a standard 2 speed transaxle, but instead of a belt, or a drive shaft driving it, it has a hydro motor. I read my earlier post and had NO IDEA what I was talking about. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]
