I had removed the pto shifter cover when I changed the oil and found lots of sediment / gunk as you mentioned. I don"t know the history of this tractor nor of previous maintenance, however when I went to clean the strainer type filter I noticed it was wire tied (as is normal) in a fashion that looked to be original from the factory. Of course it was gunked up badly and the hydraulics barely worked prior to the cleaning and new oil. I now have a new strainer on hand and want to change the oil once again and install it. This is a "62 Diesel Deluxe with the Perkins and multi-power. The multi-power is froze up it seems but I will tackle that another day. Paid $500.00 for it last year and gotten to really like this old tractor. The working tach shows 34XX hours and still starts and runs well. Since I"ve owned it has been used on a five foot bush hog and in the hay field pulling tandem rakes.

The strainer can be unwired, removed, cleaned, replaced and rewired through the inspection covers but it is time consuming.

You may want to semply remove the lift cover to properly clean the strainer and the sump and renew the lift cylinder bore and rings while the cover is off.

A few years ago I did this to a 61 35 Perkins Deluxe and a 64 FE 35 Perkins that I owned at the time. It is not a difficult job but you will need a helper to R & R the haevy lift cover.
