Since you mention dropping the oil pan to be a bit of an endeavor, I expect that yours has the cast iron pan. If you do need to drop it, the job can be made easier by instead of removing the bolster, replace the two bolts that go into the motor with some about four inches longer. then after removing the ones into the pan you can just slide the bolster ahead. You will still want a jack under the pan to lower it.

Thanks for the tip Showcrop! You are correct that the oil pan is cast iron. Since I just liberated the tractor from the loader last night. My plan is to try and inspect the oil pump shaft via the knockout/freeze plug thingy located under the oil filter. It appears that the front axle assembly may also need to off as well?? Just trying to figure out how far down the rabbit hole I'm going to go in order to remove the sump.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

You shouldn't need to remove the axle. It will help you to manage the bolster when you pull it ahead. you will have to disconnect a few things like steering, radiator hoses, oil cooler etc.

I popped out the plug under the oil filter and could see that the oil pump shaft was spinning properly. So I'm onto removing the oil sump.
The front axle looks like it is attached at two points and secured with two pins. The rear pin seems to be attached to the cast sump? Is that the case?
I'm getting the bolts today and planning on trying to sliide the front bolster forward.
Also replacing most of the steering parts and alternator upgrade while it's all torn apart. Are there any other high wear items that I should be looking to replace while I have it apart? This 5000 has 7700 hrs on it and while I've owned it for the last 5 years I have no idea of it's previous history.

Anymore thoughts or advice on the bolster seperation is appreciated!
