    That was exactly the problem. It had the N26 heaters which would be appropriate for 440 not the N35 which would be the correct choice for 220. Ordered 2 NOS and well see what happens!

    Hi,

    Motor leads, yes. Heaters, dont know. It all appears to be factory. The transformers are fine, I think- I checked and they are putting out the correct voltages even when the motor has...

    Hydrashift electrical gremlins

    Hi,

    my victory was short lived. Motor cuts out after a few minutes use. Wait a while, then it will restart. Seemed like a thermal issue. Opened the back. Transformer warm and smells hot. Do...

    Aha! That copper line is just loose on the other end! I guess I am taking the valve block off... YET AGAIN!

    And yes, I wait until everything stopped before shifting too.

    Hi,

    thank you for taking the time to answer me.

    I agree it is not changing gears. The three possibilities are slipping belts slipping clutches and somehow a change in electric motor torque.

    so, +1 on the loose clutches. I tightened the clutch and the brake. I had to se a screwdriver to nudge the adjuster- no, I dint pry on it, just used it to get a grip on it. Is it possible to adjust...

    I dont think they were slipping- it was the belt to the hyds pump that deteriorated. Ill check hyds pressure when I get an 1/8 NPT adapter.

    The instructions say to lift the clip a tiny bit and...

    Thank you for the input. I did find a slipping belt on the hydraulic pump so Ill report back after leaning on it hard this weekend. I did get a sense that yes, I could load it down and it would...
  15. Oil sight glass, clutch adjustment

    Hi,

    wanted to bump this back up.

    I see in the manual instructions on adjusting the clutch but the instructions just say 'suitable'. Right now the clutch does seem tight enough that it will spin...

    Hi,

    thank you for thinking about this. Richard, especially, thank you for taking time to think and reply. It could be clutches and I have no idea if it did it 'before' as I drained it rinsed it...

    Thank you for the very quick reply. RPC is an ARP AD-10STK - none of the other tools in the shop seem to have power fluctuation problems. I didnt state, but should have, that the change in speed...

  20. 17" Cinci Hydrashift changes speeds unexpectedly

    Hi, All,

    thank you in advance. I am a relative noob getting accustomed to a 17 cinci hydrashift, purchased "ran when parked". After a bit of cleaning, rinsing, fresh fluids, degunking the QCGB and...

    Hi, All,

    I thought I would reply with the outcome. Again, what I do best is doing nothing. So, after making sure the apron had plenty of oil in it for the plunger/sump to use, I worked the...

    Mr. King,
