  • 600 Fuel Shut-off valve
  • I need a new fuel shut-off valve for my Ford 600. I have done the re-building trick. The first time, it worked a few years, but the second time, it leaks. I notice that the dealer cost is $107.00. The usual suppliers sell it for $25.00 to $35.00. I do not mind paying for the real deal if they actually exist. They are a hassle to change as you know. From what I have read on forums, most of them leak. What is my best option?

  • You can install an in-line fuel cut-off. It costs about $6.00 from a Stens dealer (local lawnmower shop). I put these on all the tractors or riding mowers I work on.

  • Yes, but what Doug said has its variables. Every CNH dealer does not use the same supplier -and CNH does not make parts so it will depend on who made the unit as to how well it performs. Do not assume because you bought it at a New Holland dealer it is going to be flawless. Nowadays we know so much crap is made in Cheena so watch yourself. The aftermarket Hundred Series bulbs have had leaking problems for years now. People need to complain, return the product and demand quality. Many Americans just get us to junk and take it without complaining...Write the BBB if needed.

  • Thanks Tim. I thought that might be the case. That is, they just sell the same thing and mark it up.

  • I'm not saying CNH does not use quality suppliers. I know my local dealer is not my first choice to buy any parts from. Mainly because they have raised their prices so much over the past ten years or so on all teir stuff, not just the old Ford Tractor parts. They don't make nor supply the old Ford M-4864-A /MC-134D spec'd Hydraulic Oil nowadays but the last time I went to buy a jug of their AMBRA brand, it was about $75 for a 5-gallon container. 15 years ago it about $55 a jug. CNH now only sell their synthetic blend for the newer NH models.

    CNH AMBRA MC-134D HYDRAULIC OIL -NO LONGER MADE/SOLD:

  • I went through the same thing with my early 2000.The original was really bad, bought a new one from a well respected vendor. 2 years later, leaks,then more leaks no mater what. Went to the NH dealer spent like 3 time more for theirs. End of story, Its been like 8 years , no problems. If I had to do it again I buy the dealer ship parts.
    As a side note of how things have changed, When I got my first Ford tractor around 1981, I could go to the Ford dealer here and leave with all kinds of parts for my 9n
    for $100.00, Now you get a fuel filter!

  • Doug,

    Thanks for you reply. That helps a lot. I posted the same message on another site that sells them and they deleted it. That is also a confirmation.

  • Re: 600 Fuel Shut-off valve
  • I just want to make it clear, I am not complaining about the dealer that sold me the filter, just the quality in general these days.If you do go with a reputable one, they will work with you the best they can , and thats is a big difference between a serious dealer and a fly by night one. Tim, not to sure about the different suppler thing with CNH, if you have some one make a part or assy. for you, you have tolerances, and specifications for every thing about any given part. that would not change just because it is a different company making the part for you. You would think that the part would meet specs where ever it came from.

  • I did figure out the problem. The brass seat is roughed up on the end. I looked at it under a magnifying glass. I think it is the original, or an original. It is marked Bendix. My dad bought the tractor new in 1957. I might be able to clean it up on a lathe, but it is probably not worth the effort. I bought one recently for a Cub Farmall with CNH on the box and it leaked a stream, not a few drops.

  • You can fix the original valve with a new oring.The alumnium stop pin is replaced with a 10/32 hex head screw.MMO will eat original o rings.The original valve was made by Bendix aviation.Tank has to come off to replace the O ring.Dont remove the valve body from the tank.

  • Re: 600 Fuel Shut-off valve
  • Thank you. I did the repair you suggest a few years ago. Now the brass screw
    seat is roughed up on the end and will not seat. It is not leaking by the o ring. If I could find another brass screw seat, I could fix this one.
