    OT: Hydraulic Pump Flange Question

    LOL, I haven't been called retarded online in awhile. :D So you're saying I should machine the existing drive gear to press fit onto the keyed shaft? BTW, there isn't enough shoulder on the gear to use a set screw.

    As an aspiring CNC Job Shop owner, where can I go to learn the trade?

    I didn't do this track, but you might want to look at your local community college. I seem to remember that being an option all those years ago. I grew up in NY and you could do these types of programs at a vocational school called BOCES while in high school, but a lot of the same programs were...

    OT: Hydraulic Pump Flange Question

    Question, does anyone know if the input shaft on a typical hydraulic pump would be hardened? I was just assuming they were, but if they're not, I could do some work on the input shaft to come up with a fastening solution for the drive gear.

    OT: Hydraulic Pump Flange Question

    The Italian standard pump flanges were a dead end. I looked through all of those and it looks like the flanges are all rectangular on them and they're not even close size wise. Been thinking about it a lot today and it's looking like I have two options without getting crazy with different gear...

    OT: Hydraulic Pump Flange Question

    Tractor has plenty of horsepower to drive a larger pump. Currently my best estimate is that the pump is putting out about 5.5 GPM at 2200 psi so that's only going to require about 7 hp to run that max'd out. At high idle it hits the bypass and the motor barely grunts. Engine makes 25 hp so...

    OT: Hydraulic Pump Flange Question

    Exactly the kind of info I needed. Thank you.

    OT: Hydraulic Pump Flange Question

    This isn't a tractor specific question, it's in regards to pump/motor flanges and will involve custom fabrication and machining that tractor guys won't know anything about. I figured since a lot of machinists work exclusively with hydraulics someone here might be able to point me in the right...

    OT: Hydraulic Pump Flange Question

    So I have an oddball pump that I'm trying to figure out what standard it was made to. So here's the measurements: -4 bolt flange with a 3.54" (90 mm) bolt circle. -1.995" (50.72 mm) pilot -Tapered input shaft that's right around 1/2"/13 mm at its base and M8-1.25 threads at the tip. Taper is...

    Clark Forklift Pertronix Distributor Issue

    That's how I knew for sure where the noise was coming from on the forklift engine. Dripped a little oil down the shaft and it quieted right down. It was squalling like a worn out skateboard wheel before that. Since we're on the subject again, the old continental is still running great with the...

    Clark Forklift Pertronix Distributor Issue

    Update: Finally got the new module yesterday and dropped it in, being sure to not have the battery hooked up until all the wires were attached. Didn't want to fire initially because I had re-routed the wires and accidentally switched 3 and 4. Straightened that out and she runs like a dream...

    Clark Forklift Pertronix Distributor Issue

    Had that idea initially, but this drop in option just seemed so easy. Starting to regret that decision now.

    Clark Forklift Pertronix Distributor Issue

    Yeah, maybe I did remember wrong. This shouldn't burn up the module though, should it?

    Clark Forklift Pertronix Distributor Issue

    Mystery solved, sort of. Pulled the cap, rotor and cover off and found a burn hole through the side of the ignitor module. I guess I should assume this is something I did. If someone could give me guidance on what I did wrong here to make sure I don't burn up another one, it would be much...

    Clark Forklift Pertronix Distributor Issue

    Yeah, on the points setup, there was single wire from the positive terminal into the distributor and the coil negative terminal was wired to chassis ground (unless I'm remembering that wrong). So you're saying I had it correct the first time with keeping the chassis ground to the negative side...

    Clark Forklift Pertronix Distributor Issue

    The only wiring errors I found was that I had the negative coil terminal connected to chassis ground and the sub-3.0 ohm coil resistance (which I have since compensated for with a resistor between the positive lead and the distributor positive as per the instructions). I don't think either of...

    Clark Forklift Pertronix Distributor Issue

    First time posting here so if I break a rule, go easy on me :). Anyway, I recently bought an old Clark C300-40 forklift with a Continental Y112 4-cyl that ran good when I bought it and just needed the lift cylinder repacked. I got that done and on a quick test run it ran good about halfway up...
