Ok. I will have to just suck it up and give it a go I reckon. I have never had to even look at an oil pump before, so I have NO CLUE what I'm doing in that area.
I just changed the oil and filter in the tractor, so maybe I'll be able to save it. Would it matter if I didn't fill the filter with oil before putting it on the tractor? Since it mounts sideways, I figured it would all run out and down the side of the new paint, so I didn't think I should pour oil in the filter. If that is the problem....then that should be an easy fix.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeJust a guess, but since we are into 2013 now, it probably means that the tractor is beginning another year without oil pressure. :twisted:

With the cold weather lately (yes I know 25-35 degrees isn't that cold), I've decided to take the time to do some inside work where it's warmer. The tractor is in a building with no insulation nor doors, so it's cold working on it. When it warms up a little bit more, I'll go and get started on it.
THanks for checking up on my guys!!!

Now I have never had a 641 or even had the pan off any tractors. (Numerous cars, yes)

Idea that maybe good, maybe not.
If we assume its a un-primed oil pump
or bad leaking oil pickup tube.
What if you overfilled the oil to the point
the entire pickup tube was covered.
Run it,
If still no pressure, you can go ahead and drop pan and "do what you got to do."

BUT on the small chance you do get oil pressure, drain it back down to normal level. Run it, if oil pressure drops back to zero,
drop pan.
IF by a even smaller chance oil pressure holds,
my "guess would be a worn oil pump that would not prime itself".

That is what I would try.

What do the more experienced members think?
