    Re: Tedder?

    If buying second hand be careful with hidden wear. I have an old Fella (Reco) useful 8m but not well built so would stay clear. Also worth checking tine prices.

    Re: Ford New Holland 8340 SLE help thread

    Make sure the the quick lift switch just behind the gear levers is off (the end nearest seat down). Start the tractor and cycles the position lever up and down a few times and see if you get anything.

    Re: Ford New Holland 8340 SLE help thread

    Have you got the quick lift switch turned off? I take it you have done the cycling of the hitch lever?

    You need Gapples again :D
    It sounds as though you are getting some air into the system somewhere, I think there might also be a steering priority valve that could be at fault. Does the lift work...

    Amazing to see these old tractors so smart and cared for. They seemed old even when i was a kid in the late 60s.

    Re: international 584 losing oil

    I hesitated to comment but on seeing Agrimax's answer I would 100% agree. You have come this far. It is not difficult to do pistons an liners in situ. Brother and I did an 84 Hydro years ago and it...

    Re: IH Hydro 84 Cylinder Head Gasket

    We have, as agrimax suggests, run 15w/40 in our IH 895 for years, and the same oil goes in the Ford 8340. Most of the modern multi grades will spec backwards if you see what i mean.

    Some might correct me but you might fill the coolant chambers in the block after taking the head off to see if you get any weeping through the liners or the bottom o rings. As already said you can...

    Re: New Holland 7840sle gearbox help please

    No wonder a rebuild without diy is so expensive. Would it be easier to remove the cab completely?
    Another option might be to carry out the basic legwork but let a pro do the rebuild of actual...

    Re: Ford New Holland 8340 SLE help thread

    Do you mean the middle lever 1-4/5-8? It might be worth having the floor out as above and checking the cable cone on that shift.

    Re: Ford 7740 SLE shuttle lever problem.

    Foots Fitter's answer is the best way to go first, the aero chocolate alloy cone that holds the bowden cable in place over the top of the transmission may have worked loose or fractured.

    We wait for Gapples re the steering going heavy but it might be something like a steering priority valve.
