1965 International Lo Boy

Postby Masmith » Tue Jun 12, 2018 8:04 am

:{_}: The 61 lo Boy now has a cub friend. Brought this 65 lo boy home today. With very little work got it started and it runs great. Tires don’t match and deck needs a lot of work. Drove it around for a while with zero transmission whine, no knocks or smoke. Also came with rear weights. Lights work, need a new key switch. Someone lost the key and used a cheap toggle switch. I think one of the bolts holding the draw bar has broke off in the final drive. The hydraulics would not work as it was dry of fluid. I filled it with HyTran. Works good and quiet with no leaks. Not sure why it was dry. PTO engages and sounds good. I think it was well worth the $650. :D. :{_}:

Check the oil level on the dipstick. If the shaft seal on the hydraulic pump was leaking, the hydraulic fluid will drain into the crankcase and raise the oil level. You've got a nice pair of Cubs.

Bob Mcarty......If that is shaft seal on the hydraulic pump is leaking, how difficult is this to fix? I have never worked on a hydraulic issue. When I thought the pump was bad, I located a used one about an hour away from me for $50. He is a cub guy and said it is a good working pump. Is it easier to swap one out or about the same as fixing one?

To remove the pump, you need to drain the block, remove the manifold (bolts at the block and onto the pump). If you want to rebuild it, you have to remove the gear, open up the pump and either replace all o-rings and fiber washers or just the shaft o-ring. If you are exchanging the pumps, just remove the old one, replace the gasket where the pump attaches to the engine, replace the two o-rings in the manifold, and a new gasket where the manifold attaches to the block. Refill and cycle a dozen times to clear air from the lines. Here's a link to a "how to" on rebuilding the pump: viewtopic.php?f=141&t=44196
It's faster to swap it out, but the rebuild is not difficult to do.

Thanks for the imput. I leaning towards using the kit and leaning how to do the work. If I’m going to keep these, I should learn how to maintain them.
