    Door Glass

    I'm not sure how many people are on this board any more. I'm pricing a few parts to repair my 5740C. The biggest part I'm looking for is a door glass, which I've found for $950 (they're gone up a little bit). Does anyone have a source that may be cheaper than this?

    Running Hot

    500 hours 5740C - My tractor runs on the hot side. Occasionally I will try to wash out the radiator fins with a hose and that seems to work for a while but it quickly heats back up. It runs hot even when the fins seem to be clear. Do all of these tractors run hot? Is there something that...

    A/C in the summer - does yours work?

    500 hours 5740C - My A/C really doesn't keep the cab cool in the summer time. I'm running it now with the doors off just to keep it bearable. My question is: Do any of you guys who live in hot climates have an A/C that actually keeps the cab cool in the heat of summer? Just curious to know...

    Rear Seal Leak ?

    500 hours 5740C - I have what appears to be a rear seal leak. When the tractor is running it leaks, sometimes pretty heavily. When it is turned off there is no leak. I've been too busy and need the tractor too much right now to put it in the shop so have been topping it off with oil each...

    Tiller Tiller - Tines on one side only?

    I really want a weed badger, but they are too much money for me. Last year I tilled under my grapes by tilting my 3pt tiller crooked (at an angle) tnd then shifting it as far to one side as I could. It worked OK, but was still not ideal. Here is my idea: I'm thinking about removing the tines...

    5740C - No Front Wheel Drive

    I have an 05 or 06 5740C. One day it started making this awful racket down underneath up around the front end. It increased with the speed of the tractor. I found that if I took it out of 4WD the noise would go away, so that is what I did to keep working. A couple weeks later I went to see...

    Boost power with PTO pump ??

    I'm not very knowledgeable about hydraulics. I have a Montana 5740C. The website says the hydraulic pump flow is 8.72 gpm. I bought a bucket mounted hydraulic post hole digger. Its power is pretty weak and the auger turns pretty slow. Is it possible to put a PTO hydraulic pump on the back...

    Runs hot with A/C on

    My 5740C has started running hot when the A/C is on. With the A/C on it will push right up to the red. If I turn the A/C off is drops down to about 3/4. I have recently changed all the lubricating fluids. I didn't change the coolant, but did check its level. It does this even after...

    Oil & Fuel Oil Fill Question and Third Filter?

    I have a question about my 5740C. I have always used the engine oil fill cap at the back of the valve cover, but there is also a filler cap (with an oil can symbol) on the left side of the engine. What is this for? Also, there is a third, smaller oil filter on the tractor. I know where the...

    Air Filter - outer only or inner ?

    Montana 5740C What is the final word on the air filter? After searching past posts it seems that some of the early tractors may have had an outer and an inner filter but that the factory eventually switched to using only the outer filter. Is that what everyone is doing or are some people...

    Grapple Grapple Hydraulic Question

    I bought a new grapple from Vassar Mfg in Perkins, OK. I got it all hooked up but am having a problem with it. The upper claws will not stay in place when I let off the valve. When I open the claws fully and then let off the handle they lose pressure and fall back down. The same is true for...

    I've misplace my owner's manual. Whaere do I check and fill the hydraulic fluid on my 5740C? Is it the dipstick on the back end above the PTO shaft and the fill cap on the left side of the engine compartment sticking out under the hood?

    Attachment GPM requirements VS. Tractor GPM output

    I came across a used post driver that supposedly requires about 12GPM. My tractor manual (Montana 5740) says that it puts out about 8GPM. Will I have to pass on the post driver or can something be done to increase my tractor's hydraulic GPMs?

    Montana A/C Vents?

    On my 5740C there are five A/C vents in the roof of my cab. Three are up by the windshield and two more are back on each side of the operator's head. The three up by the windshield blow air, but the two farther back don't blow anything. Why??? I test drove a couple other Montanas before I...

    Montana Foot Throttle Location?

    I have a question about the location of the foot pedal on the 5740C (and probably the others). It is kind of off to the side.

    Montana Pallet Fork Question

    Has anyone here seen the pallet forks from Montana? Are the forks permanantly attached or are they just held in place by gravity? I need to be able to lift a Macro bin full of liquid and then tilt the forks to dump it, so the forks will have to stay on even when tilted all the way over. JC OK

    Montana FEL - mounting a grapple rake?
