I am new to this discussion forum. Would like to say thanks to those that made this possible and to the many contributors to the forum.
I recently bought a D17 Series IV Diesel at auction. It has an Allis loader with trip bucket (model#?) I would like to add a valve to the stack and modify the bucket for 2-way cylinder. I read some posts about "tapping off" the TractionBooster side of the hydraulic pump for an extra valve to run the bucket. Beings I won't be using the tractor for plowing or discing, is this a good method to use or should I search for another "stack" valve. It appears there are some changes to be made to the plumbing when shifting the outer (relief?) valve to the left when installing another valve. Is that simply a matter of shorter nipples in the lines or how is this done? Also, is it feasible to split the tractor at the clutch housing (keeping the engine with the front end & side rails) to replace the main clutch? If so, how does one keep the engine stabilized with the side rails? Or should the engine be pulled out of the frame and from between the rails? There is a slow leak at the PTO lever; can the PTO shift lever shaft be removed and a new O'ring seal replaced without splitting at the Xmsn ? Someone told me that the PTO shaft is held in place by a set screw accessible by removing the PD cover plate..
Thanks in advance, Gatz

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
