In our defense, us "experts" that is, I've never encountered that problem. Therefore, it did not occur to me that one might. Your B2 was not applying for reasons other than the little pin that is the common culprit. That may mean your B2 was not in the shape most are and let the strut drop for that reason.

The little pin connects a sequencing or timing valve to servo 3. This valve works with servo 3 to keep B2 from applying simultaneously with B3. If the pin is broken or gone the valve stays in position where B2 thinks B3 is still applied.
You can do anything you want to the engine and it will not hurt the SOS . . . unless you run it without oil in the SOS.

I already answered that question once.
"Re: Technically challenged SOS repair in reply to jeff pk, 04-16-2013 16:03:36 I've forgotten - why did we suggest this pin to begin with? Are you missing 5,6,7 & 8? If so remind us which tractor you have again. If this is the scenario, B2 is failing to apply for some reason. The little pin is the most common culprit. Since this is a spring applied band, one would guess a sticking B2 valve keeping hydraulic pressure applied as the next most likely cause. Either that or the band is shot, broken or not adjusted properly. Since you believe you've dropped a strut anyway, you'll likely get the chance to look the innards over well. Check it all out. Let us know what you find." This post was edited by Larry NCKS at 14:30:38 04/18/13.
