    Aquired a Case 580B-CK backhoe

    Nice, but 36 inch bucket is big. I'm looking for a 16 or 18 inch. Have a 24 and 36. If it's been sitting a while you can count on having to rebuild a few if not all cylinders.

    case 580B return to dig

    I measured mine for a guy on yesterday's tractors. Under crawler, dozer, backhoe heading. Page 2. Title just says 580b. If you need more than what is there post back. Some half inch water or black pipe, some 1/4 inch plate to make a clevis and some 5/16" or 3/8" all thread (dont remember...

    Anyone buy hydraulic seals from All States?

    Got some from them, reliable aftermarket and some from cross creek. All about the same.

    CASE 580B suddenly no gears

    Manual shuttle with two sticks is purely mechanical. Won't have a switch. 2 brake pedals on the right, clutch on the left. Either a shift fork broke, a key broke, or the range shifter is in neutral. There could be something wrong there, broken key or bent fork. Or the clutch disc failed completely

    Case hose size

    I recently replaced all the hoses on my 580b. Just took them to the local shop and he made them while I waited. Took all of a half hour to make 10 hoses. Wasn't cheap. But went with good hose. Didn't want to have to do it again. All but 2 were original 1975. Still need to do the stab cylinders...

    Ford 4500 1967

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/152113315252?hash=item236aa8fdb4:g:mw4AAOSwvg9XUIxO Getting the gland ( end of cylinder) off is the hard part. Some have a hex, some have either 2 or 4 holes for a special wrench, some are held in with an internal snap ring or spring wire. Then you might need the cheap...

    John Deer 310 D - hydraulic fluid leak right side

    I know nothing about JD. So take this for what it's costing you. Check the oil level in the trans to be sure no water got in from sitting outside. If it did it could be displacing oil and forcing it out.

    Cylinder “O” ring kit

    RAP is in Michigan, 2 days to get my parts in Tennessee. Dale is in Illinois, same 2 days to get parts. Reliable sells on ebay too. You'll need the # off the gland to order the seal kits. A lot of them even though the same year changed the seals.

    Cylinder “O” ring kit

    Got my seal kits from Reliable Aftermarket Parts. Dale Weiss at e-bachoeparts is another good place.

    Looking for Case 580 SE Manual

    No help with the machine, but Peaceful Creek for the user, repair and parts manuals. You may not think so but the parts manual is a great help with good pics.

    580L operating temp?

    Parts wear with a cold engine. Don't just take the thermostat out. Replace with a 180° if you think 190° is too warm. Engine will take a long time to warm up and still never reach full operating temp without a tstat. Looks like the 2 choices for a new one are 180 and 190. So it sounds like it's...

    Thumb on FEL

    Think a big log would be a bit much for a Jube. A big log would give my 3600 a workout. Saw your post on yt, then came here for some Case 580b info and here you are! I'm reslls there.

    580B little black smoke

    Pumpguy, do you mean don't turn while running? I know you are the guy for pump repairs and will get mine if/when it needs it. But how would you turn it if it was tight. I need to check mine too. Just got a 580b, oil was changed religiously but other things were neglected and it puffs a little.

    Does anybody replace brushes in starter?

    My cousin used to own a starter/alternator shop. He has a lot of obsolete part for starters, alternators and generators still in his garage. Along with parts for units up to about 2004. I take Ford starters to him. Gm and Ford alternators I just go get the parts and fix myself. Haven't had...

    Help with trans I'd, 580b

    Thanks guys. Manual showed up Tuesday. Know about flywheel. Have never done a car clutch without getting one surfaced. Only thing I don't get is the finger adjustment on pressure plate. Just kind of glanced over it. Didn't read it thoroughly though.
