Thanks to all who rendered advice and helped me solve the problem I had with stuck bolts on my seat assembly on my '53 Super H.
My next question is a bit more involved. . .
I knew when I bought the Super H that it had a repaired transmission case that was leaking. The case looks like it has fractured due to being frozen. The repair that was done involved a combination of brazing a plate around the cracked area and JB Weld was liberally applied as a precaution to any further leakage. A few weeks ago I purchased a case to replace the leaking one. I have also noticed that I may have a few bearings that need to be replaced. So, here are a few questions:
1. I have never worked on a tractor transmission before. How difficult will it be to replace this case, including swapping out the transmission, et. al.? Can I split the tractor at the transmission housing instead of the clutch housing?
2. Should I have someone repair the existing case instead?
3. Should I pay someone to do this work (who knows what they are doing) instead?
Overall this looks like a daunting task! However, I covet your wise counsel.
Thanks in advance!
