Hey, EZ...now that you are an expert, I have TWO you can rebuild!!! We can videotape your doing it for presentations at cubfests!! What I should do is buy two kits (VERY expensive), rebuild both, then sell one unit to pay for the kits so that the rebuild on the one I keep is free!! Did that make any sense? Going to any cubfests...I can bring them!

BD,
Haha, No Cubfests in my immediate future.
These units are not really hard to rebuild. I suppose a video would have been good to have.
Problem is, you get so oily doing the work that you would surely need a second person to do the filming.
Very satisfying work when you get it all back together.

Most Cubfests are a long way from where I live in Northern Ontario.

This is a good write up on the TC rebuild, however I wish there was a specific "How To" on it covering everything and all steps and what to check and look for along the way. I have 2 to rebuild, and several units that could be rebuilt for spares.
How did it turn out EZ? Have you reinstalled it and tried out the operation?

AL,
The rebuild went well.
However, it has not been tested yet as I am still in the process of putting the 130 back together.
There is a manual available for the rebuild, not sure of the number right now.
Also when you order the kit it usually comes with a write-up.
Keep things clean.
As you can see, I stripped mine right down, catalogue all the parts, including orientation, take photos, lots of photos, I find the pictures help you figure out where things go if you forget.
Any more questions, don't hesitate. I may not answer right away though, as I am quite busy with photography right now and don't check in to the board all that much.

Thanks for the reply. I have just ordered the GSS-1024 Touch Control Manual, and have found it to not have very much info besides how to install an o-ring (roll it on) and it has the parts breakdown pictures. I thought it would have step by step diagnosis (it does have troubleshooting), and step by step directions on rebuilding the unit with a kit with pictures for the mechanics. From the list of service bulletins they list in that manual, it seems like those would really fit what I am looking for. Anyone know where I could obtain all of the service bullitens to acconpany my GSS-1024 manual?

Maybe I just need to go ahead and order the kit from Case/IH and just tear into it and make myself figure it out! haha.
