The diesel JB pulls strong again! Got the hydro/diff swap finished. Lots stronger now, and power steering now works fine. When the hydro started getting weak, the cooler up front wasn't even warm, but the hydro was HOT, so the charge pump had failed. I've just been driving it around today with no hard pull, but the hydro is warm, and the cooler is equally warm on the inlet too, so oil is flowing through the cooler.
Need to take the 3pt lift cylinder apart & put in new seals. The guy I got the tractor from said he just had his brother rebuild the cylinder.....bro didn't do it right though. It's keeping the top of the diff wet with oil.
Looking good for plow day at Vevay, IN on April 16th!
