Inspect the 3 brake pistons. I was even able to fix mine when I first got the tractor. The one thing youll notice on the 5130 is it will seem kinda doggy for an 85hp tractor. We are getting some kind of slippage. If you learn anything about the pump priming issue, be sure and let me know. The shipping charge will be displayed in your online shopping cart.
No matter how long you hold the clutch down and leave the range lever in nuetral the transmission continues to spin. Now try to put it in gear. How easy is it to replace that? If I could just hit the powerball!! The new ones need to be warmed up in hot water ,stretched, installed and re compressed. The clutch brake is adjusted with the linkage. If you feel some resistance it may be the dowel pins.
This snap ring may not have been used on your unit and is only for stopping the piston from over stroking due to very worn clutch discs. This is with the clutch pedal up. The gears are running in Hytran oil pretty thin and low in viscosity It can take as much as 15 seconds to slow these to the point that the gears will mesh with little clashing. The complete unit can be removed from the tractor for repair. Janicholson Tractor Guru Joined: 30 Jan 2004 Posts: 30754 Location: St.
You may need to jar it loose with a soft faced hammer. Install the 3 brake pistons in the valve housing with new orings. Hi Magnum, thank you for your reply. It is like it has to prime the hydraulic pump every time you fire it up. The first International Harvester 3088 Tractors went out of the factory gates in 1981 and they kept building them until 1985. Truthfully farmers wait about 15 seconds and rake it into gear with some grinding. The rear end gears can get quite spendy to replace.
Looked like a pretty straight tractor. Installing new ones is a procedure in itself. Everything we get just sends us in circles with no real answers. Is this something fixable without a complete split? If however, it grinds as badly as you describe, the clutch is dragging or the pilot is binding where the clutch shaft spins in the back of the crank. We are not keen on splitting the tractor to replace something that isn't broke either. Did the transmission brake have advantages compared to synchronisation or did american and european engineers just have different ideas of making shifting easier? Warm up the new ones in hot water and gently stretch them out just enough to fit over the drum. I have heard that they are weak in the torque amplifier and clutch.
If it doesn't help, or the smell is accompanied by a scratching noise, you need to replace the Farmall 3088 tractor clutch disc, pressure plate and throw out bearing. The clamps will need to stay on for at least 1hr. If there is a funny smell coupled with limited acceleration, most likely your clutch is slipping.

Get a shop manuel use the specs they say. If the rocker switch on the range lever detects that it is in the nuetral position, it sends power to the solenoid to send pressure to whatever activates the brake inside the transmission housing. Jam it with the jam nut or set screw. Power goes to the switch on the firewall behind the clutch first. There are 2 dowel pins that may hang up the separation process. This ol tractor of mine is an open station too.
Expedited shipping is available, just give us a call! Looks like it would be a major job to get to the other side of the pickup tube to replace the oring. Check the valve body for wear in the large bore where the teflon seal rings on the clutch carrier drum rode. We tried a few adjustments but that has not worked out as of yet. It is clean with new input piston oring and new dust boots. Most Farmall 3088 transmission problems can be traced to parts that the average person can change by following instructions provided in the service manual for your tractor.
The heavy duty version starts with 2 steel plates ,then a fiber then 1 steel,fiber, steel etc. Using a radiator hose clamp and a thin piece of plastic or cardboard to protect the new seal from the screw part of the hose clamp slowly draw the clamp tight around the seal ring making sure it is fitting into the ring groove on the drum. How long will they last? If you start the tractor in gear and holding the clutch down, everything works fine as long as you never let the clutch out without the tractor being in gear. Sometimes, the parts compatibility is determined by the serial number of your International Harvester 3088 Tractor, and that info should be listed on the part fit notes. The input shaft will be pointed straight up. Re assemble the spool ,plug, nut with new seal and finally thread the adjusting block back on the same number of turns that it took to remove it. Install gear and spacer on 540 shaft.
