International Td7e clutch pressure
« on: July 23, 2020, 11:21:34 AM »
Neighbor has a Td7e that sometimes while pushing brush etc the machine would sometimes just start getting slower until it stopped, clutch pressure gauge would show no pressure,  he would then knock it in neutral, raise the rpm for a while and the pressure would come back and away he would go again, wouldnít happen all the time, just now and then, any ideas ? Weak pump, air ? Or deeper in the converter or trans ?

 There should be a suction strainer, not sure where on 7-E, but the G has it inline. Pull that strainer and see if debris is blocking it. Depending on what you find, you may be able to clean it and keep working, but if you find metal or much friction material, you would best plan on repairs.
  Is there any sign of water contamination of the oil?

Oil doesnít look milky and the level is good but who knows how long since the last service, this has been a farm machine for a long time, the owner is around 80 and purchased a d3 with air cab a few years ago, He usually calls me to repair his farm equipment etc and he offered me this little dozer for 4k if I wanted it, heís an up front guy and told me about the clutch pressure issue, he said it may do it or maybe not sometime, I helped him move it back to his shop and rode it probably a mile and pushed around with it and it was working fine, runs like a top, steers good etc, just this intermittent pressure issue, I probably didnít work it enough to get it good and hot either to make the issue show up so itís a mystery to me right now.

I would look for an air leak in the suction line causing the pump to lose prime. Worst case would be a seal in the pump leaking. The suction lines get hard with age and are hard to clamp.

Isnt that a torque convertor machine?  

$4k is a fine price if the bottom has life left, even if it needs work.  Repowermag has an online forum for IH nuts and thats the place to ask.  Theyll know for sure how to sort it out.

Yes this machine has a torque converter, I also posted over on red power, havenít got much response yet but hopefully Iíll get some ideas, I agree 4K is more than fair for a running machine in pretty decent shape, he only offered it to me for that price because I help him out with his other farm equipment etc.

I have an 8E its been a great machine. Some where on line there is a machine repair forum that I have been on, covers all types of machines. It has been helpful sorry I do not have the address.
