We bought a somewhat unloved 8970 last year to give us some extra tractor for harrowing and such. anyhow it got put on the grain cart last fall and proved itself as a very suitable unit for that purpose. It didn't take long before it developed a rpm surging habit, it also would just quit with no warning but would always start right up. its hard to unload on the go with that going on. With a lot of luck we found that by putting pressure with your thumb on the side of the ecm the problems went away. you will see in the pictures that a hockey puck with two quarters taped on the back and held on with a hose clamp solved our immediate problem. we have ran over two hundred hours this way. my question is has any one ever sliced the cover off one of these things? Im speculating that its a lose or broken connection in there and maybe....just maybe it can be carefully fixed. the way it is right now it works. any ideas would be appreciated.
