    We own a Case 580 Super K 4x4 Backhoe/Loader and never received a service manual when we purchased it. I am currently bidding on one online at Ebay. I just have afew issues I could use some help with at this time prior to getting the manual. Heres the first question. In regards to the (v-belt) to change it do I have to remove the air-pump or can I just unbolt it and will the belt slip between it at that time. Secondly, the rear transmission: Should I check the fluid level after it has been running awhile or before running it at all.

    Im not a mechanic but do own a 2001 superm and yes you do have to separate the pump to change the belt the same thing on the l series my dad had a k also make sure you grease the zerk because the shaft will seize on it.
