So I purchased this Case 190 with FEL, during the winter and have not had much time to play around on it. Now that the weather is better I have been driving the tractor.
I HAVE FOUND THAT THE forward/reverse DRIVE IS VERY WEAK. Sometimes it can't make it up a hill. The tires don't spin. The motor does not strain much. It just seams like the pump can't push the unit. The FEL works great.
The previous owner installed a new Northern Tool pump in it about one year ago. I would think that he installed the correct oil. Maybe he installed winter weight oil?
My question is why is there a lack of power. Could winter weight cause the lack of power? Or something else? I am very ignorant of drive systems of the old Case's. Help! Help!
