Hi! Does anyone know how to check a Case IH 1455xl turbo clutch fluid level if it’s even possible? Tractors slipping badly. Thanks.
Here’s a quick manual to your question: check a Case IH 1455xl turbo clutch fluid level.
- On the LHS of the bell housing you’ll find 2 scribe marks in the casting.
- Take the plate off the side & turn the fluid flywheel around until you find the drain/level/fill bung.
- Line up the bottom of this bung with the top scribe mark, take out the bung to see if the ATF is at this level. ( The lower scribe is for 1255 )
- If the fluid is at the correct level you can do a stall test.
- Hand brake on, foot brakes hard on, select top gear in high range.
- Hand throttle to flat out, release the clutch & see where the engine rpm settled.
- If it’s ok the rpm should settle very quickly between 900 & 1100 rpm.
- DO NOT hold it like this for longer than 10 seconds MAX.
- if the rpm is higher than 1100 rpm the clutch is slipping or the HP is above specifications or both.
- If it’s below 900 rpm there’s to much fluid in the fluid flywheel or its down on power.
To change the ATF turn the level/drain bung to the bottom & drop out the ATF, turn it back to the top scribe mark to refill with new ATF.
