That was a bearing cage ........... I would be breaking the machine down and find the problem BEFORE it becomes a situation where IT cannot be fixed!!!!!!Changing oil filters on kabota m7040 yesterday and found large piecescof metal in them, where could they be from?
That definitely looks like the race from a ball bearing.Changing oil filters on kabota m7040 yesterday and found large piecescof metal in them, where could they be from?
There is no such thing as a “benign” bearing failure.For that much of the bearing to have come apart and ended up in the sump, I'd guess the "event" was a while ago and by now the rest of the debris has gone to the bottom of the gear case too, Not a nice thing to see - but if there are no new sounds it may be benign for now.... If your dealer knows the M7040 they might be able to say where it came from and whether it should come apart to chase it.
Thank you. It slipped my mind.For that much of the bearing to have come apart and ended up in the sump, I'd guess the "event" was a while ago and by now the rest of the debris has gone to the bottom of the gear case too, Not a nice thing to see - but if there are no new sounds it may be benign for now....
If you could put a coin or other size reference in the pic someone might be able to guess where in an M7040 there are bearings like that - where to start taking it apart.
He contacted the agent he bought it through. It's a series of problems. There had been a bad sound, he thought the gears, he had dismantled the engine, now started on the hydraulics. The initial metal sound has gone. The hydraulics seem to work again now too. It's a work in progress. He thinks all the metal has come out in the oil. The pieces together may measure, roughly, the size of a cotton reel.if that ball bearing came apart, you'd know it. Any abnormal noises? Operate ok? Do you know the history of the tractor?
Everything seems to be working again. The hydraulics stopped after filling oil again, and would not show on the dipstick, sounds seem to have decreased. Now problem with the grass cutter. It's a continuous project. Fingers crossed no more problem from internal systems.Yikes!!! Hopefully you caught it before doing major damage. Good luck and let us know the results
You could try making a "minnow dipping net" that would fit through the filler neck and go fishing for it. You might get lucky quickly or it may take a little while. Shining a light down the filler neck might help to locate the object.I have a less serious, but real annoying problem caused by my own stupidity. 2014 BX 2370-- I fuel it up and when I added the fuel treatment, The foil piece inside the lid of the treatment bottle fell into the tank.
Dismantling and removing this will be a very expensive process. Tractor runs fine when tank is full, but on sled areeas when the tank is below 3/4, it plug the line somewhere. If I shut machine off and/or rock it to slosh the fuel, I can get it running again. Any quick fixes?
