Fix For Problem Case IH 3-Pt. PinsCase IH owners with electronic draft sensing for 3-pt hitches can fix failed pin problems fast. The Draft Sensing Pin Eliminator Kit is a low-cost fix for the frustrating problem, says John Boersma, Ag Electronics Repair.
“Faulty draft sensing pins send error codes to the on-board computer, halting operation of the 3-pt.,” explains Boersma. “Each time the operator activates the reset cycle, the computer allows only a 5-second operation of the 3-pt. The OEM solution is replacing the high-cost sensing pins.”
The problem occurs on Series 71, 72 and 92 Case IH tractors equipped with electronic draft sensing. Boersma’s solution is a 2-piece kit that plugs into the existing wiring harness between the sensors and the computer. It cancels the error codes and allows manual use of the 3-pt.
“The kit is simple to install,” says Boersma. “Just turn off the tractor and disconnect the draft sensors on each side. Plug in the modified connectors to the tractor wiring harness.”
Boersma reports that load sensing is lost. However, all other functions are unaffected, as are other tractor components. He suggests it as a quick fix until draft sensors can be replaced.
“The kit can be a permanent fix for farmers not requiring the draft sensing option,” says Boersma.
The kit has been available from several distributors, but Boersma is now offering the kit direct at the wholesale price of $98.40.
