Sudden movement of the machine or release of oil under pressure can


cause serious injury to persons on or near the machine.

To prevent possible injury, perform the procedure that follows before


testing and adjusting the hydraulic system.

Personal injury or death can result from escaping fluid under pressure.

Escaping fluid under pressure, even a very small pin-hole size leak, can
penetrate body tissue and cause serious injury and possible death. If
fluid is injected into your skin, it must be treated immediately by a
doctor familiar with this type of injury.

Always use a board or cardboard when checking for a leak.

specific conditions.

 low pressure standby

 high pressure stall

Prior to making any pump adjustments, perform "Low Pressure Standby Test", "Margin Pressure
Test" and "High Pressure Stall Test".

Increase the hydraulic oil temperature to the operating temperature by installing the boom lock and
stalling the boom down for 60 seconds. Check for leaks.

Assembly of the Hose Assemblies


1. Install one 6V-4143 Coupler to each end of the 177-7860 Hose Assemblies .

2. Install one 6V-3989 Fitting to each pressure gauge.

Low Pressure Standby Test

Illustration 5 g00869469

c. Remove four bolts (11) and set the floorplate (12) aside.

7. Install the 8T-0856 Pressure Gauges with a range of 0 to 6000 kPa (0 to 870 psi) to each hose
assembly. Install one hose assembly to the pressure tap (5) for system pressure. Install one
hose assembly to the signal pressure tap (4) .

Note: Do not move any hydraulic hand controls or the steering wheel while the 8T-0856
Pressure Gauges are installed. The higher pressure that is created by upstroking the pump will
damage the gauges.

8. Start the engine. Run the engine at HIGH idle. Check for leaks.

9. Do not move any hydraulic hand controls nor move the steering wheel. The pressure reading
on the gauge that is attached to the pressure tap (5) for the system pressure should be 2850
750 kPa (415 110 psi). This pressure is the low pressure standby pressure. For best results,
the low standby pressure should be set at approximately 3100 kPa (450 psi).

10. The pressure reading on the gauge that is attached to the signal pressure tap (4) should be

https://10.100.28.25:8443/sisweb/sisweb/techdoc/techdoc_print_page.jsp?returnurl=/s... 03/03/2010
442D Backhoe Loader BRG00001-00827 (MACHINE) POWERED BY 3054 Engi... Pgina 6 de 22

approximately 650 kPa (95 psi). This pressure is the steering signal pressure. The steering
signal pressure is not adjustable.

Note: The steering signal pressure will vary with each machine. The steering signal pressure
of each machine should remain consistent with the previous readings on that machine.

11. Stop the engine.

12. Before continuing to the next test, remove the two 8T-0856 Pressure Gauges from both hose
assemblies. Install a 8T-0860 Pressure Gauge with a range of 0 to 40000 kPa (0 to 5800 psi) to
the hose assembly that is attached to the pressure tap (5) and to the pressure tap (4) .

Note: Failure to remove the 8T-0856 Pressure Gauges prior to performing the following tests
will cause the gauges to be destroyed, when the pump is upstroked.

Margin Pressure Test


1. Start the engine. Run the engine at HIGH idle.

2. Engage the boom lock. Stall the boom circuit with a one-third lever movement in the DOWN
position.

14. Table 6 shows the correct pump pressure and the correct flow rate for 416D and 424D
machines.

Table 6

PUMP PRESSURE FLOW

17900 kPa (2600 psi) 100 to 130 L/min (29 to 35 US gpm)

Table 7 shows the correct pressure and the correct flow rate for all other machines.

Table 7

PUMP PRESSURE FLOW

17900 kPa (2600 psi) 120 to 140 L/min (31 to 37 US gpm)

15. If the flow is not within the specification, then the torque limiter needs to be adjusted. Lower
all work tools to the ground and stop the engine.

16. Turn the engine start switch key to the ON position.

17. Move all the hydraulic hand controls through all of the positions in order to release pressure in
the hydraulic system.

18. Turn the engine start switch key to the OFF position.

20. Loosen locknut (11) . Turn plug (12) clockwise in order to increase the flow. Turn plug (12)
counterclockwise in order to decrease the flow.

Note: Use FT-2812 Modified Wrench for Adjusting the Torque Limiter .

Note: Take care to loosen the locknut so that the sleeve will not bind. If the bolt dislodges
from the sleeve, the sleeve does not rotate. If the sleeve does not rotate, no adjustment is made.

Note: Turning the plug (12) to the next flat side of the plug will change the flow
approximately 7.6 L/min (2 US gpm). Never, adjust plug (12) more than three and a half of a
turn. Adjusting the plug (12) more may damage the internal spring. If the spring fails, the
pump performance will be poor.

21. After the adjustment is made, tighten locknut (10) .

22. Repeat Steps 11, 12, 13 and 14.

23. If the flow is not within the specification, then repeat Steps 20 and 21. If the torque limiter is
not within the specification after several attempts, then rework the torque limiter. Go to the
next test in order to Rework the Torque Limiter. Repeat the test and adjust for the torque
limiter after you rework the torque limiter.

24. When the flow is within the specification in Steps 14, then proceed with the next Step.

25. Turn the engine start switch key to the ON position.

26. Move all the hydraulic hand controls through all of the positions in order to release pressure in
the hydraulic system.
