Strainer on the touch control hydraulic system

Postby fishcop 126 » Fri Feb 12, 2016 11:08 am

Where is the strainer located on the hydraulic system for a 1949 Cub? I just aquired this tractor and got it running (hadn't run in 15+ years) and found that it runs really good! Have changed all fluids except hydraulic and want to clean strainer and change fluid. I do have an owners manual but it's not very descriptive of where the strainer is, other than on the engine block!

To answer your question, it is in the bottom of the Touch Control (TC) unit, not on the engine. You will have to remove the TC to get to the strainer. The strainer is a crush fit, oh, and is that puppy expensive. You might want to look at this How-To http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=83032 that describes making a strainer. One of the pics shows the location of the strainer.

If the hydraulic system is working fine, I would just change the oil and leave the strainer alone.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I agree, what the man said.

Thanks to all for the excellent information, will be leaving it alone. As the old adage relates, If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Hi,
In the newer Cub owner's manuals there were mistakes in the Touch Control section, IH put in info for another model of tractor. The Cub does not have what it says there.
Here are the pages below, this is a 1965 manual, and it has the mistakes in it. I have a newer manual than that, and it has the same mistakes.
The mistakes are the last paragraph on the 1st page, and the first 3 paragraphs on the 2nd page. :)

The section Glen pointed out belongs to the Super A to 140 tractors. As he said, not the Cub.
