    Re: 970 Case

    I'm in the same boat, but mine's just a bias ply. It's a COOP tire with a gash in the sidewall. Still holding but for how long? It's full of calcium chloride too. Both are pretty weathered.

    Re: 970 Case

    That's what I thought. If the inching valve isn't pushed in far enough the gears will still be turning some, thus the gear grinding. I believe a new clutch spring and cable adjustment would fix the...

    Re: 970 Case

    I'm guessing the lack of the surge is a cable adjustment problem, as in the cable isn't pushing the valve in completely. Did the range (1-4) shift OK or did the gears clash? The brakes are self...

    When you push in the "clutch" you are operating a cable that works a valve on top of the transmission. They should have an engine "surge" and you will hear some transmission whine. The easy push of...

    Re: 970 Case

    There is no dipstick for the hydraulics. There are sight glasses just ahead of the left rear axle. Was this a power shift tractor with a slipping torque limiter, or a manual with a bad clutch? Sadly,...

    Re: 970 Case

    If it's a power shift tractor, do this check: With the engine running, when you push in the clutch (inching pedal) there should be an engine surge and transmission whine. Leave the range shifter...
