new to the forum, question on upgrades

Hey everybody, just picked up a Case 580 Super L 2. Have a question about any power upgrades that might be available? Can I turn up the turbo boost levels, or turn up the injector pump? Anybody know about hydraulic pump pressures also?

Higher boost comes with more fuel. More air doesn't make power. Need fuel to go with it.

Most hydraulic systems anymore run up around 2500-3000psi.

Traded off- '97 3500 C/C, 4x4, CTD

Ok, so how do I increase the fuel delivery on this system?

The adjustment for the hyd. pressure is on the loader valve block. It will have a jam nut you loosen and a allem wrench to turn the adjustment IIRC. You should be really carefull on it though. If they are turned up too much you will start breaking links and such on the loader and on the hoe. Do you need more break out force or is it just too slow for you? JJ

This is something you need to ask yourself...there is a reason for press. reliefs so you dont damage the machine...if its going to slow you may want to change your hyd filter just to start...I dont know much about Case equipment but they are pretty much all the same...hydraulics pumps dont create pressure...they pump fluid under flow so restricions will create your pressure...so most of the time your pumps are fine ...if you feel the pump is bad...just do a flow test...again just let us know what problem you would like to fix...more hydraulic power...or speed?? just my :2cents...good luck!
