Hydro lever on Deutz Allis 1920 is "sticky"

Recommended Posts

Finally getting around to using this tractor. But the hydro mechanism is very stiff and does not move smoothly. It sat outside for 3 or 4 years before I drug it home.

Everything is working great, just that moving the lever is difficult to "fine-tune" the speed.

Is there something I can do to loosen it up or will it get smoother in time?

AHA! There is a friction disc on the mechanism. Loosened it up a bit and much improvement!

The more I see of this machine, the more I am impressed by it.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
