Touch Control

Postby Rudi » Sun Jul 26, 2015 6:22 pm

Well I guess I am feeling better .. must be cause now I am thinkin I need to put a TC unit on Granny if I am going to keep her. The hand lift isn't viable for me anymore. So the question is do I upgrade Granny .. she is kinda grown on me over the years or do I keep the lastest acquisition my 53? It needs work as well .. like converting it back to 6 volt if I keep it!

So .. how difficult is it to put in the cam gear for the Touch Control? Yes .. the procedure is in the manuals .. but reading and doing is 2 completely different critters. What is involved? Is it worthwhile or should I consider keeping the 53 that does have a TC?

Thoughts?

Rudi, Do you mean the gear on the pump shaft? If so, that's done with the pump on the bench and is no big deal.

No .. that part is easy... what I mean is connecting the pump to the engine ...

The GS 1411 isn't all that clear ..

Doing the pump itself was pretty easy .. did that at Cecil's at the CubFest in 13 ... I have to rebuild the TC itself ... that I can handle .. I am just concerned about the mill itself .. works perfectly .. I don't wanna bugger that up..

Is it basically remove the cover plate and insert pump????

You just remove the cover on the engine and bolt the pump in.

The hydraulic pump gear meshes with the gear behind the cover plate. Attaching the pump (with a new mounting gasket) can be done in minutes. Then the hydraulic lines ( with new orings (2) and new mounting gasket which attaches to the T.C.) That is the last item to attach. The Touch Control will have to be installed with the Fuel Tank removed. The Touch Control weighs around 28 pounds or so.

The Touch Control is a must when you are a Gentleman Farmer!!

It really is a Great engineered design and two thumbs up to the IH engineering dept!

Al:

Thanks for that bit of info .. I wasn't sure reading the manual. Might have to turn the mill by hand for the gears to mesh at the most?

I have all the rest .. only got a pony tank on Granny - STILL :roll: :lol: so everything is ready to put the TC on .. I think I just might go that route -- Granny is definitely a part of the family and I don't really want to part with her..

don't want to part with the 53 either .. but oh welllllll....

Thanks NJ Farmer :-)

Hi Rudi,

Hope you are feeling better these days. Maybe you knew this already, the 2 bolt holes that the bolts are in for the cover where the pump goes, are where the 2 bolts go to hold the pump on the engine. Here is a page from the parts book showing the pump and bolts. It says they are 5/16 x 2 1/2 inches. 18 thread. The 2 bolts go through the whole thickness of the pump.
It's usually easy to put the pump on an engine. If the gears won't mesh, usually just turn the gear on the pump some should work.
Use an original type lock washer on the nut holding the gear on the pump, so the nut stays tight. That should be the best kind to use. It is number 2 in the picture. Have a good day, Glen. :)
