    Please weigh in on a weighty issue.

    Perhaps one more thing to look at as far as longevity of the rear axle and the 3 point. Most of the 40ish HP tractor come with cat-1 3 point and a an axle matching that. My MX-4700 comes with cat-2, 3 point and a lot beefier axle in comparison to a mid 40ish kubota (L series) with cat-1 and not...

    Please weigh in on a weighty issue.

    I can easily pick up a 5x6 with a proper ballast. My need is very occasional. I pick bale up with a 2 in 1 pallet fork that has bale spear that I can take off and put back on very easily. Like others say I do it nice and slow and during transport I keep the bale as low as I can. On road I can...

    Hour meter repair?

    I think that OEM mechanical hr meter is calibrated to register 1 hr @ rated 450 PTO rpm. I hardly ever run my rig at 450 pto rpm or 2400 engine rpm unless I need it, so it will take me more seat time than one hr for the hr meter to reflect 1 hr. While in college I had an issue with my...

    Ford 1910

    Partially synchronized at least in my kubota means 3rd and 4th are fully synchronized meaning shifting on fly at any range, turtle or rabbit. My 1st and second gear at any range is non-synchronized, meaning full stop and then shift gear clutching first. Partial synchronized does not mean "...

    Longevity

    Oil and temp to watch and the rest is basic consumable. My 1700 has 1300 hrs in 40 yrs so it is not worked too much. Saying that, you can screw an engine in 1/2 hr brand new. Avoiding oil loss and not overheating is the key along with hyd oil maintenance for a long life. I have seen a 1700 with...

    Ford 3910 PTO help

    I personally think one should never grab the pto shaft after tractor is turned off and pto is still spinning and more so when the tractor is on with pto off. I perhaps use a long 2x4 and touch the pto from the side if I want to experiment. I hook implement on with tractor off always, many folks...

    Ford New Holland 655D Backhoe Hydraulic Mesh Filter Removal

    Nice , slow soft heat is the best for this application. Glad it worked out.

    Ford New Holland 655D Backhoe Hydraulic Mesh Filter Removal

    Nice. I like your adaptation of the wrench just to fit your application. Even superman would not be able to see that rubber disc without a bit of dissection, good work. I have also in the past made unique tools to fit just one application for my own equipment.

    Ford New Holland 655D Backhoe Hydraulic Mesh Filter Removal

    just thinking out-loud here, you certainly do not want to apply direct heat to soften the plastic. I would probably wrap the joint with thick shop rag or towel well and tie is with some jute twine or something and pour some boiling water over the towel and let the hard plastic soak up some warm...

    Ford 1700 head bolt torque

    Awesome Geo, glad to hear that and she does look good. I wondered if that is 1980 or 1981 model. Noticed a bracket next to the steering rod. is that a loader bracket? She'll serve you well, great lil working mule!!:)

    Ford 1700 head bolt torque

    You are welcome. My manual is plane Jane IT-FO44. The manufacturer's WSM would be much better like I have for my kubota. There is no instruction on how to prime the pump as there is not a fitting on the suction side that you can open and fill the pump inlet and pipe. If the pump has a good oil...

    Ford 1700 head bolt torque

    My manual does not say it very clearly,but I think it must be for the 6 nuts @ 111-115 ft-lbs. The studs are screwed in tight, does not say what torque for them but once you cinch down on the nuts it keeps the studs in tension even if they are not very tight. it is difficult to grab the studs...

    Ford 3910...air cleaner restriction light?

    I am not familiar with you rig but overall air pressure differential sensors work on a manometer (water or electronic) principle. The sensor would have two ports( tubes). One is placed before and one after the filter. Now as the filter loads up (gets dirty and plugged up) the sensor sees...

    Ford 1700 fuel injection question

    I use all the attachment in my signature with the exception of the dirt scoop since I have a loader tractor for the last 9 years. All my implement is sized to match my Ford 1700.

    Ford 1700 fuel injection question

    Refer to post #11. I have cleand and flushed block and radiator. I have an overflow for my radiator than I can watch very easily. Tractor is always parked in the barn, so if I have a leak I know. I do have a habit of constantly keep an eye on analog temp gauge, prefer them over idiot light any...

    Ford 1700 fuel injection question

    You would think that, but at the same time many makes and models have it there for ease of access and plus where else could they put it ? on a bigger rig they might have more option. I actually other than middle of summer put a 8x8 or 12x12 piece of cardboard between the radiator and the screen...

    Ford 1700 fuel injection question

    I have had some minor issues with mine, but they were all wear and tear and age related stuff plus some very basic routine. I try to learn as much as I could to avoid overheating, engine lubrication and injector pump issues. Make sure you have 2 oz of the same engine oil in your injector pump as...

    Ford 1700 fuel injection question

    sure , yes I do, No plan to ever part with it if I have a say in it.:D Can dig up parts in the manual on how to fine tune the pump if you would like.

    Ford 1700 fuel injection question

    I have not done that particular job. Can post the timing procedure later tomorrow. The injector repair should not affect the timing. it should be timed with cam shaft and crank shaft gears on the tractor . If you put witness make on gear location against the cover and other gears on disassembly...

    Ford 1700 3 pt lift problem

    I didn't try to clean it out--but should have. I have done a thorough cleaning of it not long ago. I am using the recommended oil--tractor hydraulic transmission oil recommended for Ford M2C 134-A. I did try to see if there was a viscosity difference between the used oil and the new oil by...

    Ford 1700 3 pt lift problem

    This is perplexing saying the least. it seems the pump is having a hard time maintaining the prime. This is either suction restriction or pump gear to case not in tolerance causing slippage (oil) with banjo removed at the screen you should have a stronger release of oil. That could be if your...

    PTO types clarification??

    Yup, that's exactly how I do it and try to never be in a hurry with my tractor. On top of that I always use the lightest shear pin I can buy from TSC by the lbs. Much easier to change a busted shear pin than the alternative. Overall, wet clutches for engagement beats dry clutch in longevity and...

    PTO types clarification??

    Just to add to what everyone said. My Ford 1700 does have , transmission driven PTO on Not Live with an internal overrunning clutch. The PTO can only run if tractor is in motion or if the PTO lever is engaged, gear in neutral, clutch pedal depressed and tractor turned on and once I let the...

    Mr. tobacco chewer, I think you are new to this site and posting in a forum. When you quote someone then you have something to say. Did you miss that? There is a file attached to this post. That is the brake system parts breakdown for your tractor. Click on it and it will open open up the...

    hydrate? oil leaking

    Hello, can you post a few pics and elaborate more. I m just guessing here , but there might be an oil seal when the shaft enters rear axle housing. I will look at NH website later on. Open the attachment , #29 is the brake assembly , it does not show where the brake rod comes in to rear axle on...

    Trying to replace Ford E1NN6714BB OIL FILTER - on my 1983 Ford 1700

    Nice progress Jay, don't let anyone borrow your tractor so they would not be confused on manipulating the joystick or two sticks in your case. Owners manual calls for NH-134 on all including front axle. My kubota aslo uses the very same hyd oil for the front differential and final drive...

    Ford 1700 3 pt lift problem

    Hmm , a bit strange. Flow in case of gpm or even electrical always take path of least resitance. I think what happened was increasing the pressure caused fee back on other circuit or some intenal leak in the loader spool feeding a different circuit. I think you have to draw a flow chart and look...

    Ford 1700 3 pt lift problem

    Good , I think you are gaining on it. As long as it works and now you are well aware of the limitation. If 1600 psi picks up your heaviest 3 point load then there is no reason to exceed it. Remember lift piston has a relief on the piston head which is a good thing when you hit a bump or...
  32. JC-jetro

    Ford 1700 3 pt lift problem

    Ok. I see. overall you have to have the relief after the pump. Saying that if the loader valve has a relief that is set about or lower than the main relief i Think it is okay specially when that relief over pressure is routed back to the tank. Power steering require less flow so 1/4" probably...

    Trying to replace Ford E1NN6714BB OIL FILTER - on my 1983 Ford 1700

    Jay, I say guten tight would be good as far as torque. I did look at the manual I had and it did not list torque rating for the banjo.The banjos are pretty stout and can take good amount of torque. I think it will be difficult to find a torque requirement as I do not have Factory manual. What...

    There is a hold down bracket with 8 fasteners. Need to take the bracket off to remove the light. installation is the reverse of the removal. That's what I did when I replace one of the bulbs. TSC doe have the exact dia light. if you lost the bracket, then it is pretty easy to make one from a...

    No tachee, no dirty!

    He was such a stand up guy. I really miss him. I had a pleasure of communicating with him on several occasions during my Kubota purchase. He really liked the deal I made with local Kubota dealer to be there when they put my rig together in exchange of some Venison chili and few French bread...

    Hello, Welcome to TBN Blue. You might look at the post dates of previous threads. This is an old thread, but Mr. Jinman has passed away many years ago and is not available to steer you in the right direction. It is best for you to start a new thread and explain your issue to the extent you can...

    Ford/New Holland 1720 Clutch Overhaul Questions

    indeed. It is very important how the operator engages the clutch. Ford 1700 has a rubber inspection handhole on the side of clutch housing that one can remove for inspection. Due to shape of the pressure plate you can see the thickness of the clutch disk. My 40 yr old Ford 1700 has the original...

    Ford 3930 bad input shaft bearing?

    Yes, Now I see it. Had to go to OP's pics again. I see anytime the engine is turning, obviously the flywheel is turning along with pressure plate that is fixed to flywheel and pressure plate coupled to the outer spline. That's interesting, I kind of second guessed myself but my Kubota's flywheel...

    Ford 3930 bad input shaft bearing?

    Ok . That's good to know. I did not check with NH website. I was going based on my Kubota and the WSM for my model. I think when I ge a chance will go to NH site just out of curiosity later on. Thx.
  40. JC-jetro

    Ford 3930 bad input shaft bearing?

    Thanks for correction . May be it is different in NH. I have my Kubota's WSM and it corroborates with my statement. Please look at the schematic below and give me your opinion. The flywheel on my Kubota is geared and it appears to couple with inner pto shaft.
  41. JC-jetro

    Ford 3930 bad input shaft bearing?

    Just re-read your #10 post. I think you said it in reverse. 1- The inner shaft , smaller diameter with smaller # of gear teeth is actually your PTO drive shaft. It couples with your flywheel gear. Through a counter shaft that torque is sent to clutch pack. Clutch pack is normally not engaged...

    Ford 3930 bad input shaft bearing?

    That's good to know Rick. That is pretty much what I have used in our vehicles brake for the last 20 Years. I am almost sure , my 40 yr old Ford has asbestos as it is original oem stuff. Do you know?
  43. JC-jetro

    Ford 3930 bad input shaft bearing?

    Yup, awesome. I kept looking at the clutch pack and pressure plate and could not see it clearly. Noticed the spline on the friction plate matched the outer spline and not the inner. Independent pto , specially with the hydraulically activated wet clutch like you have is the best set up. My...
  44. JC-jetro

    Ford 3930 bad input shaft bearing?

    Excellent Pictures. I think what has happened is due to mis adjustment of free play (too far rather too close) when you clutch all the way it could not separate friction disk from surface of the flywheel and the pressure plate cleanly and as a result it kept spinning parts (flywheel and...
  45. JC-jetro

    Ford 3930 bad input shaft bearing?

    you might re read what I said. I said exactly what you are saying. I only said if the clutch free play is not adjusted correctly and throw out bearing is constantly riding on the pressure plate fingers then the noise is constant and that is a fact if the bearing is bad.
  46. JC-jetro

    Ford 3930 bad input shaft bearing?

    Unfortunately that's is most probable reason. Do yo have issue with traction? clutch disk slipping? Have you ever done clutch pedal adjustment? if the release bearing consonantly touching the finger it would wear out the beaing/fingers but the noise would be constant. if your case clutching...
  47. JC-jetro

    Ford 3930 bad input shaft bearing?

    Do you mean clutch release bearing? the input shaft going through transmission case does have a bearing (ball bearing ) and then an oil seal. I think your issue is with the release bearing thhat is mounted on release fork to push the clutch pressure plate in to release the friction disk from...
