Does anyone know where I can get a new hydraulic level check plug/bolt for a Farmall 460? I canít find the part in my shop manual or by searching online. Hopefully this forum can help me.

The 460 used A small bolt in the pipe plug to have a higher fluid level. I think it is just a standard course thread bolt with soft washer. The pipe plug was a flat head hex plug if memory serves me right. Lord knows I checked fluid level on many over the years.

Common 1/2" pipe plug you can get at any hardware store.

Hi thanks. Not the big 1/2 inch bottom case drain plug, the tiny little bolt on the left side of the case that you fill the fluid up to. Itís a small bolt, just donít know what it is.

Are you sure someone hasn't stuck a bolt in it....it's a pipe plug on a 560, I find it hard to believe a 460 would be different

this is not a 460 picture. looks like a farmall M. the 460 has a 1/2" pipe plug on the left side and the fill is on top by the gear shift.

This is my 460 and t had a small bolt for checking the hydraulic level. The problem is that I believe it is stripped and when I go to remove it think the head will snap off so I want to have another one handy if I have to drill this one out.

That is factory set up on a 460 to raise oil level in rear and transmission over a 350 etc. Just take the whole plug out and knock or screw the small bolt out and rethread for next size bolt and use a washer to seal.

It looks to me like someone screwed a 3/8 bolt into a 1/2" reducer bushing.

Put a big wrench (probably 7/8 or 15/16) on the big nut and screw the whole deal out......I bet a 1/2" pipe plug will fit in the hole then.

Hopefully, the threads in the rear end case are not stripped.

Should I get iron, stainless steel or brass for the new pipe plug?

just put in the 1/2" standard pipe plug, you don't need that setup. and if your really fussy about it... add another 1/2 gallon of oil once you have the plug in after filling it.
