    Case 580B power steering not holding

    Those cylinders look to be a lot heavier than any I have seen on a B, nevertheless the cylinders look good and should work as they have been, the seals on the piston are the one to hold the steering in position, the seals must be good there, someone may have upgraded the cylinders as the parts...

    Case 580B power steering not holding

    The correct cylinders are duel acting cylinders piped in series, I have never seen any other set up, when I say piped in series means there are two lines coming from the orbital valve (steering box) if it is standard cylinders each cylinder will have two connections, one line will go to the rod...

    steering clutch of T6 international crawler

    The clutch on the T6/TD6 must be compressed before it can be removed, there are three jacking bolts used to do so, I forget the size now as it's sixty years since I have been at one of those, I think the bolts were 7/16 UNC, Go like said to Red Power and someone will have a manual. Good luck AJ

    D6B wet clutch stuck/won’t engage.

    More than likely the clutch adjusting ring had not been locked up properly and the inertia movement of the flywheel has caused it to screw itself in tight to the flywheel, all it probably needs is backing off and locking securely. AJ

    That's ok, next engine warm and on low idle remove the radiator filler cap, (protect your hands), watch the coolant for any sign of air bubbles coming up through it, how is the oil is it clean and the level not rising, do you know if it's a 3304 engine it has, is it manual or power shift. AJ

    It is quite possible for a final to go out on one side and not the other, some operators tend to be handed and can only operate the machine on one side, draining the oil from the other side and examine it closely for filings or have the oil tested will be a good pointer as to the condition of...
