downhill runaway cured by new hydro fluid

Recommended Posts

I have seen a number of posts regarding hydro tractors that speed up downhill and I had a similar problem which linkage adjustment and other suggestions I have read couldn't fix. I just finished changing the hydro and differential fluids on a recently purchased Deutz-Allis 616H (thanks to help from this forum). I was surprised that it completely cured the problem I had been having with this tractor speeding up downhill. The transmission is also a lot more responsive than before. Perhaps the old fluid was too thin to allow the pump to maintain enough pressure on slopes.

What viscosity did you use? My CASE has a bad case of the trots.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
