Ford 1210 hydrostatic clattering when engaged


Noticed clattering noise when backing and then pushed hydrostatic pedal forward to see if it quit, same thing....stopped chattering when I disengaged. I noticed a front hydraulic hose had blown so I replaced thinking that would fix it...but it's still making clattering noise. Not low on hydrolic fluid. Any ideas out there?

Not in the engine...seems like it's coming from beneath the tractor...even thought maybe the shield covering the pto tied up with a wire might be catching...but that wasn't it.

I read where air in the hydaulic lines could make noise...but don't know about that.

Worried it's the pump...which is crazy expensive.

Ayuh,.... Any update,..??

Any air in the lines should self-purge reasonably quickly,...

Is the pump externally mounted, or inside the casting,..??

Joined two other tractor forums, picking as many brains as will let me. Am waiting on diagram from Ford New Holland re: placement of axel lube ports. Other than that, still bumfuzzled. Don't know if it could be a drive shaft coming apart or just something simple like needing to be lubed. Apparently it is lubed with hydraulic fluid from it's own designated port, which i sheepishly admit to never ever thinking of before now. Hope it's not too late. Love my little tractor, and it's never let me down before.

That trans takes 17 quarts,and if it's 2qts low,it will cavitate,and chatter.
It takes 3.6 seconds to pump 2 qts of hydro from a broken hose.
Recheck the fluid level,according to the manufacturer's directions.

This is very interesting. I checked the level as soon as I'd repaced the blown hose. It was still reading high...but milky. Water had gotten in. In the process i realized whoever changed it the last time overtightened the central drain hole in the differential, and now I barely got the drain bolt out. It started to spin and retighten midway. I guess It has reamed out the central threads. Now I'm in the process having drained all the oil, trying to get an over sized self tapping bolt to work. I just got it in yesterday, it threaded two threads by hand, but falls out when I put a socket it on it. Not a mechanic, is this something I need to prebore or rethread the hole? Or have a mechanic do?

Water will cause the chatter,also. Hopefully,it hasn't caused damage to the pump!
Since it was cross-threaded, I would advise getting a mechanic to repair it,or,you can go to a local auto parts supplier,and see if they have an oil-pan drain plug repair kit,that will fit it.

That's my hope as well....Will I still use the self tapping bolt or is that another wad of cash i just tossed out the window?

If you can use it,with out it falling ,do it.Just make sure it doesn't go in too far,and bind on a gear,or something. I'd still have a mechanic check it.

No, it's actually shorter than the bolt that came out. I wonder what the kit you recommend is? Is it a tapp?

It is basically abolt ,with pipe thread on the outside that self -taps into a stripped out drain hole.
They come in different sizes,and simply screw in,and the center has a removable bolt to drain with.Here's a link to one type.
