I work at a Case Ih dealership and there are a bunch of mods being done to the older 8010's we have. The most important one is the self leveling frame cracks and must be replaced. We have 4 or 5 04-06 8010s and all of the self leveling frames have been cracked on them. They are cracking right at the bend behind the cleaning fan motor just a heads up in case you guys running them dont know about this. The new frame has some braces on them at the bends. Also my dad has a 05 8010 with 600 engine hours and the fuel lines were cracked and bout ready to fall apart so might wanna check them also. Hopefully this will save you guys some problems down the road if you catch it soon enough.

The fuel line coming from the tank to the primary filter and the one going from the fuel pump up to the motor.

my dealership is about done with my 8010 the SLS frame wasn't broke but the metal looked ready to come apart fatigued I guess. there are some other changes inside and bearing strength has been improved on the elevators. waiting for the rollers in the back right now, seems they are backordered must be more than mine bad, flat spots.

talked to the dealer in central city Ne today said they had troubel with the engine fan blowing up on their 8010's 05 models I think it would be good to check them very close as they come apart and ruin the radiator

8010dude, did you guys do any updates to the engine balancer(vibration dampener) on the engines on any 8010's, I believe this would have been on 03 and some 04 models? Word is that the updated balancer was thinner and if the mechanic used the old bolts off the old thicker balancer they bottomed out in the holes before they were tight.

I picked this up off another web site....the guy had the dampner unload on him. It's at talk.newagtalk.com/ it's currently on page 5 of the machinery section, date 8/12/2007 13:03 CIH 8010 Combine Balancer, the guy that posted it is a regular poster on there. Maybe someone who knows how to can provide a link to the post.

I just did a vibration dampner on an 8010 and we have one left to do. It never said anything about the bolts needing to be changed and I didn't feel the bolts bottom out so I think that is a myth. We also have the update on the self leveling frame cracking but luckily we don't have any out in the serial no range for that one.

Just a reminder for that if you wash out your radiator to blow it out with compressed air afterward, and maybe let it sit overnight before you start it. The suction with the water in the radiator will pull the plastic fan blades into the radiator. Our dealer had 2 of them do it last fall.....

I wish you would have posted this about 3 weeks ago.

We had a alot of problems with the radiator plugging on our 2006 8010 this year. So we were washing it out at least every day and sometimes during the day if we were close to home.

Swung through the yard one afternoon and decided to wash it out before heading to another field. Sprayed the radiator down good and started the combine to head back out to the field. BAM!!!! One fan blade snapped off and poked a nice hole in the radiator. Ended up being about a three day fix since the nearest fan was in California (we are in MN).

Live and learn I guess....

So would someone go over the advantages of plastic fan blades? Pretty much have the disadvantages figured out. If this issue is not mentioned in the operators manual (and I doubt it is) I think there should be some consideration, parts at cost? And obliviously this message should circulated. Better luck.

CIH agreed to pay for the parts.


Good thing you didn't have me do the negotiations.
Glad you got something out of it.

Just go the bill today from the local dealer. The combine was out of warranty, but they talked to the CaseIH reps and CIH agreed to pay for the parts. We had to pay for the labor, trucking, and freight for the fan blade which came overnight from CA to MN (expensive!!).

So, the bill was still fairly large but obviously could have been alot worse.
