Remote hydraulics on a Super A ?

Postby BullDAWG » Sun Jul 19, 2015 12:06 am

I'm not sure how to post only the pics from Tom's post but in this http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=126&t=77626 topic do my eyes deceive me or if you look close at it I think I see remote hydros there behind the seat just above the pto. Has anyone done this? How well does it work? Can it lift older hydraulic draw-bar implements ? If you have better pics of this please share and tell us how you did it n how or what you use it on/with

Thanks Chris/ aka DAWG

Looks like it does to me. I think it will probably lift anything a Super A can pull. IH made a remote hydraulic kit for the Super A, the valve is similar to the valve used on the Super C to adjust the pitch of the fast hitch. In the absence of the kit you can buy everything you need (hoses, fittings, spool valve, etc. at Tractor Supply, Northern Tool, etc.

I'd like to find an original IH setup. This part of the world is eat up with Super A--140s, but I have never seen one in person.

I think you will find you need a "by-pass- block" that bolts to the touch control reservoir manifold. I have never seen them at TSC or in their catalogs, but that doesn't mean they never did .


This what mine looks like.

I haven't looked recently, but someone on ebay used to sell the bypass blocks for reasonable prices. Maybe they still do? You need the one for the Super A, the Cub's is different.

The Super A's hydraulics are 3.5GPM at 1500PSI, which was pretty good for its day. Oil capacity is VERY limited, as the system was only designed to run the touch control. If you plan on operating large cylinders you will need an external reservoir.

Does anyone have pics of how to add an external reservoir ??? I'd like to see how to do that.... THANXZ

I'd like to lay my hands on this setup:

It's not a super-high priority item right now, but definitely something I'd like to add to one of my tractors.

This is a total shock to me! I never knew it could be done. I was talking to a stranger at a tractor show who mounted an electric pump on the plow frame ( like the ones used on p/u trucks) for snow plowing. That's just what he did to lift his 6' Jeep snow plow on his A....

If it's just an A, it won't have provisions for a hydraulic pump so you'd need to add something like an electric snow plow power pack.

This only works on a Super A and newer, with the touch control system.

You also should add a remote reservoir because of the low amount in the factory touch control (thats what IH did on the FEL's)

BullDAWG, I haven't been on here lately. I left the farm in Illinois and moved to Pittsburgh. I kept most of my tractors, including that SA. I bought a bypass block off eBay that goes between the TC unit and the factory hydraulic lines. Outstanding quality for the price. Can't remember what I paid, but it was pretty inexpensive for a quality part. I bought an old Case 12' disc and narrowed it to 8', added a hydraulic cylinder, and added an axle and wheels that I made. Very heavy disc. I wanted to pull it without tearing up my yard, and transport it. That was all the hydraulics were used for, raising and lowering the disc. No external resorvoir. No problem lifting that very heavy disc at all. also I had to buy the hoses,hydraulic valve and couplers. I got those at a Big R store in Morris Illinois. TSC, Farm & Fleet etc. Farm stores should be able to fix you up.
