Hi.My name is ***** ***** all the blogs.One of them you were helping.My problem is simalar if not the same.It,s a dozy for me.I,ve already tried most everything the experts have suggested and still no go forward.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

It,s a 1979 straight John Deere 410 backhoe.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

It,s a long story.Might as well get started.

Give me the story. It will go in reverse, but not forward? Do you have neutral or does it move in reverse when in neutral? Does it lock up when you go to forward? The reverse clutch pack is locked and keeps engaged in neutral, and when the forward clutch is engaged, the two cutches are working against each other. Repair is to repair the reverse clutch.

I have neutral .Dosent lock up in forward.Just nothing.Just got serial number 410-D 317088t

Apparently.I always thought it was a straight 410.Parts I have been getting have been for 410 and have always worked. I know it,s a 1979

The clutch pressure check will determine if the shifter is moving the spool for forward and reverse. Did it fail all at once, or get worse over time.

Ask Your Own Construction and Road Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
It got worse overnite. I,ll finsh what I was saying.Oil was just a little below last mark.Put in oil and it would go in reverse and just a little bit in forward.Drove it around in morning,but did,nt have power to do anything.Brought back to house and it has,nt budged in forward since.No debris in screen at all.Changed filter.When I did that I took out the wrong bolt to drain.Relief valve.Bolt and spring came out is what i saw.So thats what I put back.Needed some parts,so Bought a new gasket for the bolt while I was at it.Saw on my parts catalog that there was suposed to be a valve.Looked in buckets that I drained.No good.Bought new one and put it in.Was running without valve for awhile.
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Take that back.When I started it the 3 hoses were leaking and I had to do whole thing over.200 miles to civilization for me why did,nt change them,and on Sat. Just thought I,d mention that.I don,t think I lost it though. Dipper valve had fallen apart. Cap on bottom was gone.Big acorn nut.Nothing let but spool hanging for shifting levers.Changed that with whole new used and tested one.Works great.Seems to have gotten rid of the morning chatter too.All leaks fixed.I am going to change another one on loader thats been bad for awhile.Have looked over linkage .Everything seems to be working fine.One more thing.About year ago starter quit working and came out of it.Now starter not working again,and I have to do the screw driver thing.Just trying to give the facts.maybe some that makes sense to yous
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I think your right about checking pressure is next move.I,ll get right on it when I get kit.Main pump was changed by deere couple years ago,but don,t trust that they put new one in.Guess pressure test will tell us something.Also.it never slipped before this.I saw no hydo fluid or parts when this happened.No smells of burning,or hot. Thanks for bearing with me.I,m pretty frazzeled.

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 4 years ago

There will be ports under the reverser, that you can blow air in. You should hear the f/r clutches engage when you find the right ports. Check it before you install the reverser if you can.

Hi Curtis.Got parts cleaned up and ready to go,and they did,nt send one gasket which I need.And those gaskets were for just putting the old one back together.Should,nt have even needed it.Reverser came with plate that goes to engine missing.Can use my old one,but need the gasket now.Anyway...I could air test,and was excited to try it,and can,t find the ports.Also was wondering about gasket sealer.Use,not use,and what type would you recommend? Thanks John
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 4 years ago

I would not use a sealer of any kind unless you are using an old or damaged gasket, Then I would use one of the Permatex, Ultra series of silicon, which will seal even in oil.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago
The surface on the new reverser where the missing plate goes it pretty scratched up is why I asked,and my old one had a few gaskets siliconed too.Both have been apart before.Looked at my parts book and cant find test ports.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 4 years ago

On the transmission housing will be ports, they won't be marked or identified, But just blow air in them, two will go to the clutch packs. You should hear/feel the clutch pack engage.

One of the rods to reverser linkage was all the way out to the point it could,nt go any farther.Had to adjust it in a bit to get it hooked back up.Think I,m getting close,but something I,m missing.Dont know.

Would not think the key has any effect. No solenoids on the transmission. FEL and backhoe function have there own separate pump. Transmission pump is internal to the transmission, and after looking, you have no torque converter.

Good morning Curtis.Long day yesterday,and long story.Anyway saw my old mechanic in Elco.He lent me his tester hose that he uses.Put it on this morning before I drained hydrolic oil again to put that check valve back in.Went pretty good,but no pressure.Did,nt even budge.I,ll put the check valve back in and try again,but think gauge would have showed something.Hoe worked and bucket lifted front tires off ground.Cant figure why I dont have reverse anymore.He got the page 35-9 up on computer.{clutch discs ect.}And he said that number 8 is a piston,and the O rings in that could of let go which means splitting machine.He said it was a new pump that they put in,and not a used one.Dont have fitting to check out the pump.One other thing he said I could try is cracking the pressure line to reverser control valve.Did,nt do that yet.So thats where I,m at.

The Man who bought it was a diesel mechanic who specializes in excavators.He looked at Backhoe real quick for me.From what I gathered from him was what you were saying,that the small pump he thing engages the clutch packs.Which now leads me to believe that the piston in the cluck packs have failed o rings..Looking like a split to me.Going to go see JD dealer on Monday or Tuesday and see what they would charge.Was hoping to pin point problem.Still going to keep trying.
