Hydro on the 876 Found a Leak

Recommended Posts

RJ Hamner

I noticed that the 876 was leaking trans fluid on the garage floor after i parked it.

Went out the next day and cleaned up the spot and put a can under the hydro.

Checked the next two days and nothing in the can.  So that told me it only leaks when its running

Fired it up this afternoon and let it run and cycled the lift a few times

Shut it off and checked all the hoses, filter and anything else I could see from the top

Crawled underneath and found fluid dripping from the area circled in the photo

If I replace the two parts noted on the photo is there a good chance that would fix the problem or are there bigger issues???:scratchead:

      I had wired the tractor according to the wiring diagram (I thought) and have been waiting on some parts to finish.
      Everything was ready to go except the ground wire connected to the battery.
      As I was looking at my handy work I thought that the ground wire would look better if I moved it to the other side of the fuel line.
      In the process of moving the wire it touched the negative post on the battery......ZAP SPARKS!!!
       
      Got out the diagram (see photo) and retraced the wires from the regulator (see next photo) to the switches in the dash (see last photo)
      Everything looked like it is where it is supposed to be.
      The only thing that I am not 100% sure of is the wire that comes out the bottom of the regulator and to which terminal on the starter/generator (hard to see in the picture, it's on the right terminal)
      I thought I had it on the correct terminal. That wire does not appear on the wiring diagram.
      Could that be the problem? or is there something I missed??
      Will appreciate any and all help

      One of the prior owners had added head and tail light to the tractor (876's did not have lights)
      I am getting down the the "short strokes" with the rebuild and trying to figure out the best place to add the circuit.
      My thoughts so far are to tap into the cigar lighter and run the wire over to the wafer switch (the PO did an outstanding job installing the switch to the dash panel)
      As most of the tractors that HAVE lights use a fuse in the circuit and I have been thinking of putting the fuse between the cigar lighter and the wafer switch.
      YES/NO??? Other ideas? 
      When I disassembled the tractor I know that there was no fuse and I am not real sure about wires
       (I wasn't paying that much attention to the wires as I had the diagram and didn't realize then that the 876 didn't have lights)

      I found this "field modification" (origin unknown). The dark square that has been wired to the rod is lead that weighs about a pound and a half.
      the 876 doesen't have the friction parts of the later models so I am wondering if this was/is an attempt to dampen the movement of the forward/reverse lever?!?
      Any ideas??

      Hello!  I have been reading posts for a few years as I’ve tinkered with my two great wheel horses.  I have a 1968 Charger 12 auto with a leak coming from the motion control linkage, as well as the tow valve being seized up, lastly, the parking brake is not locking up the transaxle.  My primary concern is the leakage though.  Do I need to remove the pump and motor to get at this, or can one replace it with them in place and just remove the linkage pieces?  I suspect if I have to remove them, then fixing the parking brake makes sense, and maybe I can find a way to free up that tow valve.  I have it soaking in PB blaster per a comment on that issue from a few years ago.   By the way, my other horse is a C-81.   Attachments include a grader blade, a dozer blade, 2 decks and a cultivator.  Looking for a tiller for the Charger.

      Well my old 1973 Auto18 just suffered a problem. And I have a feeling it is not good.

      It has been running like a champ past several years since the Sunstrand tranny was rebuilt beautifully.
       
      I have been following the instructions of keeping the oil clean, changing filters/oil every 50hrs etc..
       
      Was using it yesterday and suddenly it stopped moving forward or backward.
       
      It didn't take long to see that tranny  oil was pouring out the rear wheel axle. At least a quart or two poured out into that tray.  
       
      I jacked up the tractor and now  see that there is a good 1 ½" of exposed axle when i tried to remove the wheel.  Wheel did not come off as one of the bolts was frozen. So this is what I have.
       
      I'm sitting down.... Can someone tell me how bad this is?? Gulp! 
       
      At first I thought it was just an axle seal. But that would be way to simple correct?
      Thanks for any help on this matter!  
      Jack
