I have a '63 4000. Today I started to clean up the power steering pump. It has been sitting in a container open, and up side down draining.
I went to clean it, and surprise, there is no filter in, and nothing to hold the filter in. Is this something I can just make up, or is there something special to the bolt that holds it in. Plus a small steel disc was in the bottom of the drain container. What is it from, it came from inside the reservoir?
Thanks, Pat

Here are some pics. I posted earlier this year to help someone out.

Maybe help you out too.

The hook goes in the hole, it will catch on a lip about 1/2 " down
the hole. The filter I have is 3" dia. 1 3/8" thick with a 1" hole.
If you make one be sure you have plenty of tension on the spring.

Yep that's the only way it will hold that filter down securely. Especially if ya make it 4" like I pictured above

I think that it's supposed to hook onto a lip on the inside of the big nut at the bottom of the reservoir.

What????? No holes or drilling needed. This filter spring hook is in the inside of the reservoir and only holds the filter in place. It does not attach to the cover pan if that's what he's talking about.

yeah, sounds odd the way i said it. the little hook on the end of the retaining spring needs something to hang on to and I have seen a few differnt little holes for th hook to hook inot on the little pad the filter sits on.

I didn't see a hole in it anywhere. I painted it yesterday, so tomorrow I'll flip it back over and take a look. If there's not, I'll drill one in the metal pan as William had.

I'll make it up. once I get a filter.
Thanks, Pat

You will just stick in the hole and catch the lip of the fitting.

You should be able to get a new latch spring. Its just a wire hook with a spring to hold the little cap in the center of the filter.

The hook on retainer went down thru hole in center of hex. That bolt is cut down on od of bolt so bail can catch on it.

That disc hold the filter against the little cup in the bottom. You essentially won the lottery as that is usually missing. You can McGyver a retaining spring that reaches through that disc and hooks to anything you can find, or fix a thin bolt to something that then will poke through that disk and take a wing nut.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
