2019 UPS Rate Changes

Another new year brings another shipping cost increase.

Compared to the 2017 UPS domestic rates (2 years ago), we expect an average of 11% increase for packages under 70lbs. For packages 70lbs and up, the increase will be around 25%. Larger packages will also see new surcharges, which will affect some mufflers and radiators. Similar or identical increases are seen for shipping to Canada.

Fuel surcharges are dropping, but are still higher than a few years ago, and are also calculated at a higher rate. For example, the cost of diesel in September 2016 resulted in a 5% ground package surcharge, that same cost would now result in a 6% surcharge. The current surcharge is 7.25%. Air shipment fuel surcharges are 30% lower than in October 2018, resulting in a 2.5% relative drop in air shipment costs.

We estimate the actual average year over year increase to be about 10% relative to 2018 rates. FedEx has a similar rate increase that is effective in a few days. The next Priority Mail International rate increase will be on the January 27th 2019 and be around 4%, this will only affect international shipments.

832991-Transmission Brake


1. Remove woven pad from arm.

2. Drill center of arm pad with 7/32” hole with ½” bit to 1/16” sidewall.

3. Chamfer 7/32” hole with ¼” – 20 tap ½” deep.

4. Tap 7/32” hole with ¼” – 20 tap ½” deep.

5. Assemble button to arm using ¼”-20 x ½” countersunk Allen head screw.


1. Clutch pedal up.

2. Transmission brake arm held against gear.

3. Lengthen clevis on adjusting rod until pin can be inserted.

4. Insert clevis pin and key.

830739-Universal Clutch Setting Tool

1. Adjust linkage so that the release bearing is at its most rearward position with the clutch pedal up.

2. Note position of the release fork. Optimal position is straight up and down. Any tilt forward removes travel of the clutch and causes poor release.

3. Place tool across the face of the bell housing (with the ¼” spacer facing toward the engine).

4. Record measurement (A).

5. Remove tool from bell housing and relocate to the pressure plate with the ¼” spacer resting on the release levers of the pressure plate.

6. Measurement (A) and (B) must be the same for free travel and linkage adjustment to work correctly.

830493-Draft Load Sensing Signal Splitter Kit Instruction Guide

Installation of the Draft Load Sensing Signal Splitter Kit requires 1 functioning sensor pin.


1. Connect the splitter end of the cable (in line) with the good pin.

2. Run the other end of the harness across the tractor, underneath the cab, to the other side of the tractor.

3. Disconnect the bad pin lead from the wiring harness and tie back the lead using the nylon tie supplied.

4. Connect splitter end to tractor wiring harness.

The draft load sensing will be back to functioning in the electronic mode.

830486-Draft Load Sensing Pin Elimination Kit Instruction Guide

The following steps must be completed on the left side and right side sensor harnesses.

1. Remove sensing pin retainer plate located on the outside of the link mounting bracket.

2. Unscrew the wiring harness connector from the sensing pin.

3. Remove the rubber grommet from the top of wiring harness protection tube. Pull wire harness up through the tube.

4. Plug in the Electronic Load Sensing Elimination Modules to the free end of the wiring harness.

5. Using the supplied tie wraps secure the sensor wiring harness with the sensor elimination module to the tractor harness that is routed below the back of the cab.

6. Reinstall the grommet into the tube.

7. Reinstall sensing pin retainer plate.

Hitch control functions will work in manual mode only, without draft control.

830485-Draft Load Sensing Pin Elimination Kit Instruction Guide

1. Unplug both sensor pins from wiring harness of tractor. Connectors are located under the rear of the cab, directly in front of the three point rock shaft, on each side.

2. Secure sensor pin harness to the harness tube with supplied plastic tie wraps.

3. Plug in the electronic load sensing elimination modules in place of the sensor pin electrical connectors.

4. Secure the electronic load sensing elimination modules to the tractor wiring harness with supplied plastic tie wraps to prevent damage caused by movement.

Hitch control functions will work in manual mode only, without draft control.

830484-TA Pressure Isolator Instruction Guide

This tool was developed to help diagnose lube light problems. The purpose is to isolate clutch pack pressure from the TA and Direct Drive clutch packs. This tool blocks off TA and Direct Drive oil from entering the torque jumper tubes. Lube oil is still allowed to enter the torque.


1. Remove selector spool nut and spool.

2. Install isolating rod (threaded end up) and nut.


1. With isolator installed, start tractor and read lube pressure.

a. Lube pressure comes up to normal operating pressure.

(a leak in the torque is robbing lube oil).

b. Problem with lube oil still exists.

(problem is in lube circuit of MCV or TA).

We also sell a selector spool nut socket P/N 830406

830467-Flow Control Valve Instruction Guide

To minimize problems in hydraulic circuit after converting to radial piston pump to a constant flow gear pump, it will be necessary to use a flow control valve, if a constant hydraulic demand is needed, such as in an orbit motor.

There will be three ports on flow control valve and will be labeled, IN, CF, and EX

From the hydraulic outlet on the tractor (this will be the pressure side of outlet) run a hose to the port on flow control valve marked inlet. From the port marked CF will be the controlled flow which needs to be hooked to the inlet port of the hydraulic component being used. The three reaming ports EX return from hydraulic function and return outlet on tractor hydraulic coupler need to be hooked together and can be Y’ed wherever it’s convenient.

Test for Pump Efficiency

1) Make sure needle valve on tester is wide open.

2) Run your system to its normal operating speed.

Note: GPM on flow meter

3) Slowly close needle valve on tester to system pressure.

(While under pressure note GPM) if system’s pressure is unknown, check with manufacturer

4) Take your GPM in Step 3 and divide it by GPM in Step 2.

This will tell you your pump’s efficiency.

Caution: DO NOT exceed manufacturer’s maximum pressure rating of pump.

830460-Dump Spool Pressure Test Instruction Guide

Instructions for Checking TA and Direct Drive Pressure

1. Remove the linkage from the clutch dump valve.

2. Remove the nut that holds the clutch dump valve in place in the MCV.

3. Remove the clutch dump valve spool from the MCV.

4. Install the Dump Spool Tester in place of the clutch dump spool. Be sure the hole in the end of the spool is pointing outward toward the JIC fitting. Secure with the JIC fitting provided. This fitting will allow you to hook up a 0-600 lb. gauge

5. When finished checking the pressure remove the Dump Spool Tester and replace with dump valve and spring. Reinstall the nut and linkage as before.


By installing a second gauge at the bottom of the MCV you can see the action of the oil as it comes back from steering and goes to the clutches in the torque amplifier. If the oil is slow or delayed going through the pressure regulator to the TA clutches, there is probably a leak somewhere in the system. A leak can occur in the seat, brakes, brake cooling and lube, clutch booster cylinder, TA, or differential lock. The oil and pressure can be leaking internally to sump and cannot be detected from the outside. By using this check spool you can check the oil pressure after the pressure regulator. The pressure regulator is designed to shut down the oil to the TA, should there be a leak or low pressure in the system. This will ensure that the tractor has brakes. The brakes get their oil before the pressure regulator. To find the leak or reason for the low pressure it is often necessary to block off one of the demands on the system at a time.
