So I made a new tube, which is very easy if you have a lathe.
I installed the tube, put manifold back on and filled the hydraulic reservoir first. Oil almost immediately start running out of the trans drain. I sure wish I would have tried that before I took the tube out. So, I split the tractor today to find the seal completely out of its bore, just sitting on the shaft. The pto shaft has quite a bit of end play and the trans output shaft is also over spec on the end play.
I've been studying my parts manual, but a lot of the part numbers in the illustrations don have a description so I don't know if there are shims on the pto shaft to adjust play or not. Any of you know?
And for the trans output shaft, it looks like there's a shim for the "C" sun gear that might take up the play I have. Any input on this as well?
I am hoping this doesn't snowball much more. But I know this is a 58 year old tractor that might need more TLC.
I think it is worth it. Under the red and then blue paint is the original gold on every part that I've checked so far. I kind of wish it wasn't a gold tractor because my heart says I need to repaint it to the original gold, but the red and gray is so darn pretty. Maybe I just need another tractor????
