Finally going to replace the gear oil in my B's final drives, after too many years. What's the best way to replace the gaskets? Can't seem to find pre-cut gaskets online or at local tractor store...so do I cut my own cork gaskets from a sheet....or should I use a fat bead of RTV sealant?

Thanks!

Hey;

I just cut some out of cork, and punched holes with a Blue Point set. No leaks for 3 years. Hope this helps!

Rod, the oil pan has a cork gasket, and the engine oil is thinner than the oil in the final drive. What's the problem with a cork gasket?

I didn't mean to imply that there was anything particularly wrong with cork as a gasket material. It's an old time choice that has been used successfully for many years in such service. I indicated that I made mine out of a non-cork material - actually Victolex. I prefer that over cork because I think it is less brittle and easier to work with if you are cutting your own out of sheet material. I also think it is easier to remove at some later time without tearing, like cork sometimes has a tendency to do, especially if a gasket cement had been used.

Thank you for the tip, Rod. That looks like the material to use. I really appreciate the post.

clean them good, make sure they are float, and a good bead of RTV works good. i prefer the orange stuff that is made for sensors, instead of the red or black.

I made new gaskets from gasket stock available from NAPA (not cork). I prefer regular gasket material to RTV where feasible. You might also want to consider adding a drain plug while the pan is off.

When I did them on my C I used silicone and they have not leaked since. Doesn't take all that much to do a good job

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
