In the manuals the vast collection of useful information is compiled.
Lets begin by pointing out that most mechanical problems are caused by neglecting to maintain and regularly service the unit and of course normal wear and tear. Your tractors handbook will detail daily and hourly checks and services.
Should you not have the handbook for your model feel free to contact the GP Tractor Parts sales team to arrange a copy for you or advise you on your particular problem. Difficult steering Tight When steering becomes tight and difficult check the following points.
This is normally represented by a gap between the bracket affixed to the top of the kingpin and the kingpin housing. Remove kingpin and replace thrust bearings.
Grease all points and if necessary remove, clean and replace worn parts. Steering box internal components such as shaft and bearings may need replacing or lubrication. It is advisable to remove these and preferably mount nose weights onto the tractors weightframe secured onto the front support.
If you are experiencing difficulty in identifying the source of the problem, approach it systematically by jacking up the front end of the tractor so that the wheels clear the ground.
Separate the steeing box by removing the tie rod ends from either the steering box or where they meet the front axle.
Check the kingpins individually and steering box for tight turning. Fig 1 B Measurement A should be 10 to 12 mm less than measurement B Be sure to inspect all components such as front axle centre pins and bushes for wear as well as axle and kingpin housings bent or distorted due to accident damage.
Remove bottom water hose and pour a constant flow of water through radiator until all signs of rust dissapear. Check the core to ensure that none have been blanked of thus restricting the efficient flow of coolant as this is s common practice of some repair shops. Inspect the condition of the radiator cap which is important.
The radiator cap is designed to maintain the systems pressure thus bringing down the coolants boiling point and at the same time releasing exessive pressure.
Long and short reach radiator caps are fitted to MF tractors, make sure that yours is the correct length Fig. Check radiator for leaks by either pressure testing or if you do not have this facility run the motor until hot and leaks will become evident.
Fill radiator with water and antifreeze mix. Antifreeze is not only for cold weather but also inhibits rust. The flow of air should be drawn towards the motor.
Remove and place in boiling water and opening will be clearly evident. In South Africa with our warm climate it is advisable and common practice to remove the thermostat as it is not necessary.
Do this by removing the centre part of the thermostat and refit.
This will restrict the water somewhat and ensure that the motor does not run too cold. Ensure that there is no play in bearings.
If you are unable to solve the problem based on the above the unit needs to be taken to a workshop for a full diagnosis as certain problems may arise in older models such as exessive rust build up in motors water channels. A suitably qualified workshop such as GP Tractor Parts will also through years of experience detect unusual occurences not normally evident to the untrained eye.
We have had amongst others poor quality water hoses which collapse on themselves under hard working conditions. Fig 2 Ensure that this distance suits the radiator neck as MF have a long and a short type. Often radiator cowlings are left off.
These are important in directing air flow where it is needed. The heater plug supply is located on terminal 3 Warm weather: If the system is bled correctly and the battery and starter motor are in good condition and the motor will not or battles to start the answer is simple.
Your motor needs attention as it is suffering from low compression, blown head gasket, faulty injector pump etc. Strip fuel pump by removing top. If this is the case replace same. Hydraulics The hydraulic pump is located in the diff housing below the tractors seat. Ther are numerous reasons why the hydraulics become slower, weaker or stops working.
This is normally wear and tear or a small problem. The correct procedure is to remove the pump and lift cover for repair by a qualified workshop.Mar 29, · MF hydraulic lever/valve problems Discussion in 'Massey Harris-Ferguson' started by cccc, Mar 28, The tractor is a *great* tractor.
New Holland tc33da. All the right bells and whistles (HST, 4wd, etc). Problem with the tractor is, while not being considered a big tractor, it's still large enough to be useless on much of my property.
Some of the problems will require calculations, while some will be conceptual questions. This is a closed-book exam.
