HC,
Checked the parts department and found the gasket set. What am I going to do with all that mat board stored in the shop?:):) Thought about inserting a modified copper grommet into the oil port opening of the gasket. Just a thought.
Have one more theory. My new theory is to wait for a lot of forum input before theorizing.
Mr. T. Minnesota

dry paper oe style gasket.. nothing else.

the only other possible mod I would do is have the cover cut for an oring that then sandwiched down onto the deck.. I have seen a fergy with a deck cut oring boss.. etc.

still.. I've done plenty N with paper gasket and have never had to go back in as long as the deck and cover were clean and smooth there.

remember if you put a metal crush gasket around the port.. the cover will not set true, making the outside of the cover be at a different angle, and thus encourage blow out.

the engineers covered this by 1939.. no need to reinvent it.

I've done a half doz of these. Just the paper gasket and no sealer. Use some 7/16" bolts with the heads cut off to hold the gasket in place while lowering the top cover into place. I also use a small wedge between the main draft spring and the rear end to hold the cover up while I re-position the control arm.

Correct gasket and NO type of gasket crude. Trying to fix what has worked for decades does not work with this area of this type/modal of tractor

I'm thinking that grommet is a good recipe for a cracked top cover. It takes very little unevenness on the clamping surfaces to crack a flat casting like that.

Sounds like you have had some personal experience along thes lines. Hope it was something cheap like a thermostat housing :roll:

I've done that. I also couldn't agree more with the possibility of a cracked cover.
