I have considered working on a video maintenance series for our tractors.
I know its going to be quite the undertaking as I have never fully worked on the hydraulics of my tractors :headscratcher:
thought it would complement the information provided online on these "how to's" as some people like seeing it done visually.

it would range from new hydraulic (motor) oil, to transaxle service to the installation of 3 points and pto's etc

do have some information on the topics above, I will have to re fined some of it.
I think it would be helpful but what do you guys think?

.... right now I am thinking of what I am getting myself into! :headscratcher: :drinkbuddies: :canada: :222:

you feel like being a movie star Tom? :wave:

This is a wonderful idea. Since I am a new Case owner, I was actually going to put together a list of stuff from basic to more advanced that a new owner should check over when they get a new [old] tractor. I was going to make a list and post it here and ask people to add or subtract from it. If you'd like we could make it a "living" document (as we call it in the enterprise content management world, haha). If the mods think it is a worthy document, we could update it and throw it in the technical section and put youutube links to all of your howtos in it. Just a thought, btu I'd love to help out with this, because I think it is really needed.

Being a vision oriented person, the idea appeals to me; and can we please start with clutch adjustment (EZ or not).? Those of us whose heuristic values tend to imagery, thank you in advance Mr. Calzone.

Dusty,
Feel free to begin a brand new thread. Start it off with your own list and then invite others to add to it. When everyone feels that it is complete, then I will have Dan create a new FAQ that incorporates all the salient points. :thumbsup:

BTW, we love it when members take such initiatives and bring their ideas forward like this. Everyone wins as a result.

seems like their is interest in this idea so I will do my best!

I can try Tom. :drinkbuddies:
Dusty- sounds good.
Troll- its on the list, but it may not be for awhile. still need to get my 222 running.

if all goes well I should be hauling 1 of my parts runs home tonight. then its install and film.
may need assistance on some existing written how to's for myself :facepalm:

anything special to put on hyd fittings prior to installation?
ooo I see the questions already brewing, will hit the tech section on the forums aswell.

Sly.... there is interest but it's a pretty large undertaking to get it right.

It has to be correct. The audio has to be CLEAR, CONCISE and INTERESTING. That calls for scripting, multiple takes, proper lighting and excellent editing.

Another issue is this. Where are these videos going to be hosted? This is where Chuck comes in and tells you what's possible. If these are to be placed on this forum, then they have to be hosted in a safe environment where they can always be accessed. In other words, you would relinquish control over the copies that are accessible at this site.

I'm not sure that I would have enough time to participate but..................I think that you should begin by creating a list of topics you think should be covered. Let's start with that and see where it goes. OK?


You do not put anything on hydraulic fittings UNLESS.........the fitting is pipe thread. Then....you coat the threads with a good quality pipe dope such as Master's.

hmm.
I do see your points, now it sounds more difficult :sad:
well, I havnt given some of it that much thought, but I would be uploading these onto ShnitzlHaus channel.
so it should be permanently up in that regard, embedding is always enabled. if something does happen (unlikely) I would have originals to find a new host.

topics to start, well.. I should be hooking up a 3 point asap on my 4118D.
after tilling 2 plots I will be taking it to the shop and tearing into the transaxle as the break is no longer functioning.

now I can use the first time hooking the 3 point up as practice :sidelaugh: then video it after the transaxle maintenance.

so a good start would be
- 3 point
- transaxle
- oil flush in the hyd system

either way I will film and post something, or I will decide if its either worth posting or not.

ps. Tom are you saying my videos are shit? LMAO :wink:

If something is worth doing, then it's worth making a big effort to get it right.

Can I find that on my satellite menu?

As I said, Snotrocket needs to confer with Jack and I on this issue.

Sly....that consists of undoing 4 bolts on the rear of the tractor and mounting the hitch. The balance involves running the two hoses under the tractor and connecting them to the lift valve. How will you show the latter part if you cannot lift the entire tractor off the ground high enough so that the camera can record the action? Most video cameras suck at close-up shots.

after tilling 2 plots I will be taking it to the shop and tearing into the transaxle as the break is no longer functioning.

I assume that you mean the "brake". That's on the outside of the trans-axle so....there's no need to tear into the trans-axle itself unless something has gone wrong with the brake drum shaft inside the trans-axle. Most of the time, the brake band can be relined. This would make a good video.

now I can use the first time hooking the 3 point up as practice :sidelaugh: then video it after the transaxle maintenance.

so a good start would be
- 3 point

Changing the hydraulic oil would also make a good video. There is a way to get around having to raise the tractor to film this.

either way I will film and post something, or I will decide if its either worth posting or not.

Did your momma not teach you to never ask a question if you think that you won't like the answer? :sidelaugh:

100% agree.

ShnitzlHaus coming to Satellite menu's 2012 :trink:

if not embedded as I understand that takes up forum space? a link would work, just not as pleasant to look at, but like you said, something you and the team need to touch base on.

purchasing sight unseen, I have a valve on mine!? its okay I will make it work. as for off the ground, I have a lift available but my wide angle lens will make this job doable and focus should not be a problem.

the woodruf key (thats the name?) must have sheered. we shall see the surprises inside

interested to hear

I think that it's a great idea. However, I also agree that it is difficult to get it "right". I have seen some real crap out there from do-it-yourself home videographers. If making these types of videos is not your profession (or serious hobby), what I would suggest is that you pick a topic to cover, film it, and post the youtube link on this site. Then invite everyone to pick it apart (not just if you performed the repair correctly, but also the videography). Be prepared for criticism but use it as a learning experience. Often times it takes others to see the mistakes that you might miss.

Stills and text can be printed and taken to the garage etc. They can then be consulted even though your hands are dripping oil or smeared with grease. Backing up to double check a procedure or reassemble is as simple as flipping a disposable page. Can`t speak for anybody else but, all my service manuals have greasy thumbprints... Not very smart and I frequently reread as I go to double check the critical bits. :wave:

I guess this is moot if you have a laptop in the garage :grin:
