1952 Super C Rear Hydraulics Quandry

Postby HIGHNOX » Sun Apr 24, 2022 1:20 pm

Hello All: Thank you for reading this topic.
I have a 1952 Super C with rear hydraulics for the 2 point fast hitch (elevation only).
The previous owner replaced the original lines with hoses, and it works fine, except some hose rubbing.
I would like to know how the rear hydraulic lines were originally installed and connected. Photos, diagrams or advice would be so appreciated.
I really wonder where the inline block was mounted, and can you help me with the purpose, I assume a hydraulic lock.
Also, the "plumbing" at the control valve seems added. I have included some images for your perusal.
Thank you in advance, Rob

Your pics are not showing up on my end!

Have you tried looking at pics on the internet utilizing your favorite web browser?

There might be a good pic of the hydraulic lines in the owners manual

If you dont have a owners manual there might be one in the pdf manual section here at farmallcub.com!

I'm not sure on the Super C hydraulic line installation. But I think the lines from the rear cylinder originally went into the bottom rear of the tool box (where yours is ripped up). The hose clamp is showing. The check valve block may have originally been inside the box. Check the two unused holes ahead of the serial number plate. They may be where it attached. The other 2 hoses came out the front left of the tool box (seat base) and crossed the platform to the control valve.

Again, not sure but I believe that is what i have seen on some pretty original looking tractors.

Jim is correct about the rear hydraulic lines going through the seat support/tool box.

Thank you for your replies, I did look up a lot of images on Google images, and elsewhere. Problem is, they are all different due to homemade solutions to apparently their own failed tubing. Also, I am not seeing the block in any photos. I had also perused the online pdf manuals, but nothing for the super C. A friend did send me some pictures for his 300, which is a beautiful machine, but not a Super C. I thought I would come here to a Super C forum.
I can make the hard lines, I am just still in a quandry on the location of the block.
I ordered a manual, we'll see what it shows.
If someone has any pictures on a Super C rear hydraulic block placement, I would really appreciate it.
Thank you.

There is a super c manual in the pdf section here at farmallcub.com. I used it for reference to write this!

In it, on actual Page 25, illust 25a and 25b shows rubber hoses from the valve mounted on the touch control block going towards the back!

Actual manual Page 26, illust 26a shows hoses comming from under the seat toolbox to the hydraulic couplers, and quick couplers and hoses to the fast-hitch lift cylinder

I'd say hoses was standard from the factory!

Too bad there is not a parts book for the super c in the pdf section.

I have a super a manual and it also shows hoses run from the same type of valve to the rear for rear remote set

The check valve might just be the block in illust 25b on actul page 25.

In front of the seat tool box, just behind the gear shifter.

Edit:

There is also a noticable block between the seat toolbox and shifter in illust 24.

Ignore this post. Evidently my "ALT" key stuck. Couldn't do anything but get strange downloads.

Sir, my hat is off to you, I shall try again, try and find the pdf manual here, I appreciate your research. :worthy:

I would still like to see some pictures, I saw only one of hard lines on the Super Cs on the net.. And it did not look factory.

Again, thank you for finding it, I hope I can match your sleuthyness.

I agree with what SamsFarm said. One note, it appears that the front lines may have been steel tubes on some tractors. It isn't clear to me which ones. The parts catalog shows both available but it may have been a change on the 200s.
