1 - 305 mm, 2 - 149.2 mm, 3 - 190 mm, 4 - 35 mm, 5 - 139.7 mm

Remove a mounting bolt from each side of pto housing and install two guide studs. Support pto housing with a hoist, remove remainder of mounting bolts and remove pto unit. Withdraw the pto drive shaft.

Fabricate a connector plate using dimensions. Mount plate between range gearbox and rear axle housing to prevent housings from separating during removal of power shift unit.

Connect a hoist and chain to upper front corner bolts of power shift unit, Remove bolts connecting rear axle housing to main frame. Separate power shift unit from main frame.

Support rear of tractor with a stand under range gearbox. Use a hoist with a suitable lifting sling or chain to support power shift unit, then remove stud nuts and separate power shift unit from range gearbox.

Reinstall Operations

Use a hoist to position power shift unit on mounting studs. Tighten stud nuts to 100 N-m (75 ft.-lbs. I torque. Apply Loctite 504 Gasket Eliminator to end of main frame.

Roll rear section of Case 1690, 1290 Tractor forward engaging transmission input shaft in splines of clutch. Tighten housing retaining nuts and bolts to 100 N-m (75 ft.- lbs.) torque.


- transmission mounting bolts and bushings and tighten to 165 N-m (120 ft.-lbs.) torque. Remove connecting plate.

- pto drive shaft and pto unit. Engage pto and turn output shaft to engage drive shaft splines with pto sliding gear. Tighten housing mounting bolts to 75-85 N-m (54-64 ft.-lbs.) torque.

- drawbar support and drawbar. Connect draft sensing cable.

- hydraulic filter assembly and tighten mounting bolts to 47-57 N. m (35-40 ft-lbs.) torque.

- filter supply line using a new "O" ring and tighten retaining bolts to 47-57 N-m (35-40 ft.-lbs.) torque. Connect hydraulic lines along right side of main frame.

- lubrication line on top of range gearbox.

- power shift control valve and tighten mounting bolts to 47-57 N-m (35-40 ft.-lbs.) torque.

- Case 1290, 1690 Tractor transmission cover leaving mounting bolts loosely installed.

- remote valve using new "O" rings and tighten mounting bolts to 47-57 N-m (35-40 ft.-lbs.) torque. Connect remote valve hydraulic lines and control linkage.

- wedge and shim in front, of transmission cover. Tighten the rear cover mounting bolts and all side and front mounting bolts to 110-130 N-m (80-95 ft.-lbs.) torque. Tighten the two rear bolts to 205-245 Nm (150-180 ft-lbs.) torque.

- power shift and range shift selector assemblies and tighten mounting bolts to 23-28 Nm (17-20 ft.-lbs.) torque.
Reconnect wiring harness and neutral start switch wires.

- a new transmission oil filter and tighten filter cover mounting bolts to 23-28 N-m (17-20 ft.-lbs.) torque.
