OK gang here are the pictures showing the sight glass and how I mounted an external filter for the s-o-s transmission. The bulkhead fittings on the tranny are 3/8 pipe thread. I used both compression and flare fittings with short pieces of 1/2 in copper tubing and used oil resistant hose to make up the rest of each line(easier to get around corners than trying to bend that size tubing).

I hope this gives everyone a good view of how I did it. Filter base is a NAPA 4267 with a NAPA 1622 filter. This filter has a built in bypass valve at 7-9 psi like the original filters.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I don't think Ford had a habit of repainting the gold tractors. Individual dealers may have or customers may have requested it.
I know the first gold IH 826 that came into our local dealership was repainted red when sold at the customer's request.

I think I might have found some gold paint on the front axle but I have to wait until I can get out in the sunlight to make sure. My Dad did have the tractor painted in 1963, but it was red when he bought it used in 1961. I know they probably repainted the demonstrators after they were initially sold and/or before actual sale as well.

Could be a reworked gold demo trans, the red paint on the trans looks different from whats on the axle housing

My 62 model 881 has gold paint on the 2-3 band retainer plate, I'm guessing they repurposed most of the hard parts back into new tractors has the old trans where swapped out

The sight glass is on the first pic on the round access cover. The sight glass itself is located in the middle of the plate and the top of glass is just below the centerline. It is kind of hard to make out.

The size of the holes for the bulkhead fittings was 1 inch. I measured the fitting to make sure I had a drill bit that would work.

R.E. 'sight glass' -
perhaps I am missing the obvious, but where is the 'sight glass'?

I do like your filter arraignment - what size holes did you need to drill in the case to do the plumbing?

IndFord,

I took a good look at the trans housing yesterday and it does look like GOLD paint underneath. I am going to check on other places on the tractor to be sure as I know a lot of s-o-s trannys were rebuilt and swapped out as modifications were done. Who knows, I might have struck gold! :D

I don't think so. Just white primer. Looks gold from flash on phone camera.

I should also mention, the washer welded on the cover plate is to hold the o-ring in place when the sight glass is tightened.

Thanks Dean. The worst part was hooking up the pipe from the control valve to the bulkhead connector on the right side to come out of the tranny. I didn't change the pipe inside(just in case) but I probably could have cut some off of it. I used a straight 3/8 to 1/2 tube compression fitting inside and then used hose to curve up to original filter pipe.

I like it, Brian.

It would be simple to install a cooler in front of the radiator.

Is that there gold under the red paint?

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
