Hello all, this spring I've decided I am going to tear into the hydro on my 1886, and I have not found a video series on YouTube outlining removal & repair. If there is some interest I would be happy to make a detailed video, but I don't want to waste my time. I learn way better by looking at a video, or hands on so I figured it may be helpful for people who are on the fence about doing this.

 

Also, where can I get new slippers and cam ring (If need be) + all the o rings and seals?

That sounds like a great idea. You should do it.

Always nice when a member takes a few extra minutes to help an unknown future hobbyist.
Thanks for considering the project.

If you are going to rebuild it anyway, you may as well video it so we all can see how to do it!

The seals and orings can be had from your local hydraulic shop.  Last one we worked on had a worn brass bushing in the rotor.  Only sold as a rotor assembly for around $600.00.  I was able to find a bushing from a Minneapolis Moline wrist pin.  OD. was correct and I honed the ID. to specs.  I also had to make a tool to line up the rotor in the mill to bore the 5 holes in the bushing.  If I remember right the hole are 16 mm.  I did mark and save the tools back at the shop for the next job.

When my charge pump went bad it was the bushing and seal. Like Ducky I found a bushing with the correct OD and bored the ID on the lathe. Installed it and the seal and the tractor is mobile again. Less than $20.00.

Do the video if you have the time. I'm sure there would be people looking for assistance in the future.

Do you buy the internal parts from Eaton directly?

No all over the counter parts.  I am not sure where they priced the rotor assy.  Let me check next time I am up there.

I have a manual on # 6, 7 and maybe 11. They all look about the same. Lots of little stuff inside these simple looking rigs.
