TONY JACOBS said: If you replace with a used one from a Gas engine trans. the problem is solved as I said in my first post

How exactly would that help? Would it not be subject to the same vibration damage as the diesel version, or was it made from different material? Or, would it too be considered a 'temporary' fix? (sans 'balancer')

The original tube in your tractor lasted 50 years while being subjected to the vibrations from the diesel engine. The tube from a gasoline engine tractor would not have been subjected to 50 years of diesel vibrations, and so would probably last you 50 years before it wore out from being vibrated by your diesel engine. So yeah, it would only be a temporary fix.

I doubt that it lasted 50 years in our particular tractor. It looks as though this one has been re-built at least once. Too many pieces floating around with no damage other than the broken tube.

Given that and the failure rate on these tube, I wouldn't be surprised if they replaced that too at the time.

A position strengthened by the fact that there were no O-rings on either end of the tube as indicated in the manual. The other tubes have them.

We have a line on a gas tube, but until that becomes a reality, I'm still going with a weld+hyd hose sheath.

I am sure your trans. has been apart before , and I would bet the tube has never been replaced they generally start breaking at about 4000 hours give or take a few hours it does take a while for the metal fatigue to happen , and since there was no o-rings on your tube the previous owner or someone he hired and why it was not fixed then is any ones guess had it apart sometime after it failed because it will not hold pressure without them .
