Service Manual

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (CONTD)

Use the procedure in the Operation & Maintenance


Manual for connecting the battery and for jump
starting.

Use the procedure in the Operation & Maintenance


Manual for cleaning the spark arrestor muffler (if
equipped).

Fire Prevention
The machine and attachments have components that are
at high temperature under normal operating conditions.
The primary source of high temperatures is the engine
and exhaust system. The electrical system, if damaged
or incorrectly maintained, can be a source of arcs or
sparks.

Figure 1

Flammable debris (leaves, straw, etc.) must be removed


regularly. If flammable debris is allowed to accumulate, it
will increase fire hazard. Clean often to avoid this
accumulation. Flammable debris in the engine
compartment is a potential hazard.
The spark arrestor muffler is designed to control the
emission of hot particles from the engine and exhaust
system, but the muffler and the exhaust gases are still
hot.

Do not use the machine where exhaust, arcs, sparks


or hot components can contact flammable material,
explosive dust or gases.

The operator cab, engine compartment, and engine


cooling system must be inspected every day and
cleaned if necessary to prevent fire hazard and
overheating.

Check all electrical wiring and connections for


damage. Keep the battery terminals clean and tight.
Repair or replace any damaged part.

Check fuel and hydraulic tubes, hoses and fittings for


damage and leakage. Never use open flame or bare
skin to check for leaks. Tighten or replace any parts
that show leakage. Always clean fluid spills. Do not
use gasoline or diesel fuel for cleaning parts. Use
commercial nonflammable solvents.

Do not use ether or starting fluids on any engine


which has glow plugs. These starting aids can cause
explosion and injure you or bystanders.

Always clean the machine, disconnect the battery,


and disconnect the wiring from the controllers before
welding. Cover rubber hoses, battery and all other
flammable parts. Keep a fire extinguisher near the
machine when welding. Have good ventilation when
grinding or welding painted parts. Wear a dust mask
when grinding painted parts. Toxic dust or gas can be
produced.

Stop the engine and let it cool before adding fuel. NO


SMOKING!

Know where fire extinguishers and first aid kits are


located and how to use them. Fire extinguishers are
available from your Bobcat dealer [Figure 1].

Description

IMPORTANT
When repairing hydrostatic and hydraulic systems,
clean the work area before disassembly and keep all
parts clean. Always use caps and plugs on hoses,
tubelines and ports to keep dirt out. Dirt can quickly
damage the system.

The loader backhoe is equipped with two control valves.


The loader control valve (Item 1) [Figure 20-10-1] is
located under the operator seat and controls the loader
lift arm cylinders, bucket cylinders, front auxiliary
couplers and the optional rear auxiliary couplers.
The second control valve (backhoe control valve) (Item
1) [Figure 20-10-2] is located in the backhoe control
panel. It controls the boom cylinder, arm cylinder, bucket
cylinder, swing cylinders and stabilizer cylinders.

P-33329

There is one main relief valve (Item 2) [Figure 20-10-1]


that is located on the loader control valve. It also works
as the main relief valve for the backhoe control valve.

Pump Adjustment
The testing of the hydrostatic pump must be done in the
following order:

CHARGE PRESSURE
FLUSHING VALVE
TORQUE LIMITER
All testing is done with the hydraulic oil at 150 F (66 C)
The hydraulic hoses, tubelines and fittings are 24 DIN

cone metric fittings.


P-42707

To test the charge pressure, stop the engine and engage


the parking brake. Raise the machine and install
jackstands. (See Procedure on Page 10-10-1.)

WARNING

With the park brake engaged, hydraulic fluid temperature


at 150 F (66 C), start the engine and set the engine to
1000 RPM. Record pressure on the gauge (Item 1)
[Figure 30-50-2]
The correct pressure should be 320 psi (2206 kPa).

Put jackstands under the front and rear axle before


running the engine for service. Failure to use
jackstands can allow the machine to fall or move and
cause injury or death.

Stop the engine.

If the pressure is incorrect, loosen the jam nut (Item 1) on
the relief valve. Turn the adjustment screw (Item 2)
[Figure 30-50-3] clockwise to increase the pressure or
counterclockwise to decrease the pressure.

P-42703A

Tighten the jam nut (Item 1) [Figure 30-50-3].

Remove the plug (Item 1) [Figure 30-50-1] from the


charge port and install a 1000 psi (6895 kPa) gauge.
Remove the plug (Item 2) [Figure 30-50-1] from the
forward travel test port and install a 10,000 psi (68950
kPa) gauge.

Retest the charge pressure after adjustment.


NOTE: If the charge pressure was adjusted the
flushing valve test must be performed. If no
adjustment was made continue to the Torque
Limiter Test.

start the engine and engage the press to drive. Set the
engine to 1000 RPM. Record the pressure on the gauge
(Item 1) [Figure 30-50-4] in the charge port.
Apply slight pressure to the forward travel pedal (Item 2)
and release. The gauge (Item 1) [Figure 30-50-4] will
drop 30 psi (207 kPa) less than recorded pressure, then
return to recorded pressure. The correct pressure drop
should be 30 psi (207 kPa).

Loosen the jam nut (Item 2) and turn the adjustment


screw (Item 3) [Figure 30-50-5] counterclockwise to
increase the pressure drop or clockwise to decrease the
pressure drop.

Position a magnetic-base dial gauge on the axle housing


in the position shown [Figure 40-31-119]. Lock the pinion
and move the ring gear. Record the backlash measured.
Repeat this procedure on two or more ring gear positions
to obtain an average value.
The correct backlash value should be between 0.0059 to
0.0098 in. (0.15 to 0.25 mm).
To adjust the backlash value replace both shims, select a
shim from the chart below.

NOTE: All preloadings must be measured without the


seal.
If the total preload is under the permissible range,
increase the thickness of the shim equally on both sides
of the differential, while retaining the value of the pinion
ring gear backlash.
If the total preload is above the permissible range,
decrease the thickness of the shim equally on both sides
of the differential, while retaining the value of the pinion
ring gear backlash.

Attach one end of a light rope to the drive flange and


make 2 or 3 complete wraps around the drive flange,
attach the spring scale to the opposite end of the rope.

Position a magnetic-base dial gauge on the axle housing


in the position shown [Figure 40-41-119]. Lock the pinion
and move the ring gear. Record the backlash measured.
Repeat this procedure on two or more ring gear positions
to obtain an average value.
The correct backlash value should be between 0.0059 to
0.0098 in. (0.15 to 0.25 mm).
To adjust the backlash value replace both shims, select a
shim from the chart below.

NOTE: All preloadings must be measured without the


seal.
If the total preload is under the permissible range,
increase the thickness of the shim equally on both sides
of the differential, while retaining the value of the pinion
ring gear backlash.
If the total preload is above the permissible range,
decrease the thickness of the shim equally on both sides
of the differential, while retaining the value of the pinion
ring gear backlash.

Attach one end of a light rope to the drive flange and


make 2 or 3 complete wraps around the drive flange,
attach the spring scale to the opposite end of the rope.

Armature Short-Circuit Test: Use a growler tester, put the
armature on the growler and hold a hack saw blade
against the armature core while slowly rotating the
armature [Figure 60-40-27]. A short circuited armature
causes the blade to vibrate and be attracted to the core.
An armature which is short-circuited must be replaced.

HYDRAULIC/HYDROSTATIC FLUID SPECIFICATIONS


Specifications
Use Bobcat hydraulic/hydrostatic transmission fluid (P/N 6563328). If this fluid is not available, use 10W-30 or 10W-40
SAE Motor Oil (5W-30 for 0F [-18C] and Below).
DO NOT use automatic transmission fluids in the loader or permanent damage to the transmission will result.

WARNING
Diesel fuel or hydraulic fluid under pressure can
penetrate skin or eyes, causing serious injury or
death. Fluid leaks under pressure may not be visible.
Use a piece of cardboard or wood to find leaks. Do
not use your bare hand. Wear safety goggles. If fluid
enters skin or eyes, get immediate medical attention
from a physician familiar with this injury.
W-2072-0496

When temperatures below zero degree F (-18C) are common, the loader must be kept in a warm building. Extra warmup time must be used each time the loader is started during cold temperature conditions. Cold fluid will not flow easily and
it makes action of the hydraulic function slower. Loss of fluid flow to the hydrostatic transmission pump (indicated by
TRANS light ON) can cause transmission damage in less than 60 seconds.

WARNING
During cold weather (32F [0C] and below), do not
operate machine until the engine has run for at least
five minutes at less than half throttle. This warm-up
period is necessary for foot pedal operation and safe
stopping. Do not operate controls during warm-up
period.
When temperatures are below -20F (-30C), the
hydrostatic oil must be heated or kept warm. The
hydrostatic system will not get enough oil at low
temperatures. Park the machine in an area where the
temperature will be above 0F (-18C) if possible.
