Been putting off replacing hydraulic tube through 901 Selecto Speed transmission. Start filling trans. in mid sixties we've been draining trans. and pouring back since then worked fine for years. Few days ago lifting some heavy stuff with boom pole has gotten worse so time to fix. I am not comfortable splitting the SOS. Would I be better off trying to sleeve it from front (manifold) or do a rear split. I'm old (70) and working by myself. Thanks

unless the sos trans is much different than a 4 or 5 speed, you can pull the hyd manifold and then you can see the pressure and suction lines.

If you are going to get a new tube made, then you can snatch the old tube out, from the outside.

Credit: Hobo for this tip, about using a tap to lightly thread the id of the tube, then you can screw a bolt in and use that to snatch the old tube out with a slide hammer or similar.

Or you can go the sleeve route with tubing and epoxy.

It only can go in one way :)

It is also a special stepped diameter tube, so it will need to be made or found nos.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
