    d160 lost all hydro

    Got things back together and have some minor things to resemble but it lives again. Thanks for all who had advice to give, this site is well needed for those who have wheel horses or those who have information and like to share it.

    d160 lost all hydro

    When I told LJ that I could push the tractor without turning the tow valve he said the retaining clip coming apart in the motor was the culprit because there was no pressure holding the pistons against the swash plate if I remember correctly.

    LJ fluid is a great wheel horse doctor, tell him the symptoms and he tells you the fix.

    This is what I found when I opened up the motor, L J fluid is a must go place for hard to figure out issues. Now its time to order parts.

    d160 lost all hydro

    Just talked to LJ fluid and told L J what happened and he said that it sounds like the spring and retainer in the motor cylender block came apart and happens on the motor more than it does on the pump. It's a inexpensive fix if thats what it is and they have lots of parts for the D series piston to piston pumps. Will keep you all informed.

    Moved engine to check coupler and splines and they are all there, nothing broke, next is to check pressure.

    Getting a pressure guage from a friend and in the meantime I removed charge plug and oil and air bubbles flow out a couple inchs high when at idle if that indicates anything.

    Page 48 has the hydrogear trouble shooting chart and the symptoms point to a malfunctioning valve in center section and says to do a hydrogear tune up but I am unable to find the wheel-a-matic manual anywhere online.

    How much pressure should there be on the charge pump? And when engine runs alot of oil comes out of the implement and charge pump plugs when I loosened them but didnt want to take completely out because oil was already pouring out. Also in the manual it says if you can push the tractor when tow valve is closed and have no forward/reverse and no implement power it is somthing in the center section but what is the center section if anyone knows.

    would there still be oil flow if the pin was sheared even if it was low oil flow and is taking the pump off the only way to check? thanks

    oil pours out if I loosen either one of the plugs on top of the pump and I know its flowing back to the motor because the manifold gets warm, which line is the suction line, thanks.

    d160 lost all hydro

    I have checked the coupler and it turns the pump and the pump and manifold lines do warm up after running a while. When I loosen up the implement or charge plugs on top of the pump oil does come out. I removed and checked all valves on pump and acceleration valve on motor, replaced filter and oil and no luck. when tractor runs the pump is quite until you engage forward or reverse and 1 wheel is off ground and you turn the wheel by hand to get the wheel to start spinning the pump sounds like a fan with a wobble and the noise stops when wheel is not spinning. I was told it sounds like lack of fluid in the pump caused by a blockage or air being sucked in somewhere. I removed the hydro motor and the screen was clean and found no metal shavings.
  13. Any suggestions on a 79 d160 that lost all hydrolics( forward, reverse, impliments) while I was moving dirt and I was able to push tractor with tow valve engaged. When I jacked up tractor and engaged forward or reverse and moved lifted wheel the pump made pulsating noise when I turned wheel by hand and it did spin but able to stop wheel by hand and when the wheel stopped moving the noise stopped. I spoke to a hydro repair shop and he said it sounds like there is not enough fluid getting to the pump and could be sucking air somewhere. I checked every valve I could externaly and cleaned the screen by removing motor with no good results. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Good price for a 257h

    I have a 1989 257h wheel horse that I want to sell with 353 hours on it, it has a kawasaki model fc540v engine with electric power. Everything works and it still has the hub caps. Does anyone know what a good asking price is, I've accumulated to may tractors and need some room, thanks for any info.
