44 Diesel Tech,
Thanks for the reply. Can you explain how to remove the hydraulic pump without splitting the tractor? I have the shortened IT shop service manual and it doesn't state anything about splitting the tractor to remove the hydraulic pump. The John Deere service manual and parts manuals I have tell you to split the tractor so that you can disconnect the hyd. pump from the transmission. I assumed if I get the pump disconnected, I can pull it thru the clutch housing cover. Currently, I have one of the power steering lines disconnected from the top of the hyd. pump by going thru the access door. I assume there is another one or two power steering lines I cannot get to?
