I can turn it by hand, bearing are good, replaced the hydraulic pump and bled the lines but still won't turn. I'm running the header on a CX8080.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

can't remember, but thought there was a shear key somewhere (on shaft the motor goes into?) it should be hard to turn by hand. good luck

Yes, there will be resistance trying to turn the hydraulic motor. Will be very hard to turn it by hand if still connected to the hyd motor.

Take off motor to center draper and make sure it is working. Mine was shot. Thrust washer in motor failed.

I had my center motor replaced a few weeks ago with similar problem, they say the pump is making filings and contaminating system and will fail, macdon should make it a recall since dealer has done it to all the 13 they sold

Cost is 3500 dollars to do it with service call
