Adjusting charge pressure on Sundstrand

Recommended Posts

I see in the service manual (Allis 720) where the charge pump pressure can be adjusted by changing shims under the plug on the left side of the hydrostat. I would like to speed up the 3-point lift a little and wondering if anyone might have experience with making this adjustment? I believe there is an access plug in the sheet metal housing (chasis) next to the hydrostat. Thanks Nelson

There is a plug in the frame for that, But from what I was doing on mine it only set the pressure for the hydrolics, I had to adjust mine up a little bit, did not get any more speed. If you go in there have a magnet and pressure guage that goes up to 1000lbs

Flow = speed in hydraulics. Pressure = the work that can be done when converting fluid energy into mechanical energy. In this case how much weight you can pick up with the lift. The only way to get more speed is to increase the rpm's of the charge pump, or speed the engine up. The variable here is to check the output of the charge pump as it may be worn out.

Is it possible that the spring against the relief valve has weakened over time letting the valve crack slightly under pressure? I'm thinking that part of the flow would then go past the relief with the remainder doing the work. The 3P lift seems slow at low RPM but perhaps that's the way they're designed. I realize that the charge pump is not a powerhouse. Thanks for the feedback. Nelson

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct
