1600- gotta ask

Is there a possibility the idler gear for the hydraulic pump did't line up right with the other gear and now I have it jammed? It sounds like the starter is hitting HARD on the flywheel, and it's not even budging.

Just for kicks I engaged the PTO, put the front 1/2 of a pto shaft on it and with it supported on the end i put a large crescent wrench and a pipe on it, and stood on it without turning it at all. I even bounced on it.

If I gotta pull the top off again, how do I get the new oil out? I may work on something else tomorrow and get back to it on Sunday....

Sounds like that may be what I did. I was getting in a hurry as it was getting late and I wanted to get home for the night. I'm gonna pull it back off today and see whats going on.

I put a new hyd pump in our 1950gm years ago and the gears on the pump "stood" on top of the gears in the trans instead of meshing. As I tightened up the housing bolts I noticed the front ones pulling the housing down instead of it dropping flat. I was in too much of a hurry and kept tightening down bolts and then fired up the tractor and ran it down the road. I learned the hard way, but got it fixed the right way after realizing my expensive mistake.

I can't feature how it would have come down far enough to seat down all the way with it sitting right on top of the gear,but I suppose it could have lined up that way. I know I thought mine might be trying to do that when I put it together because it didn't want to drop down in front.
That oil's gonna be a messy problem. I think you can get most of it out that large plug down toward the bottom left side toward the back.That's not gonna be anywhere near all of it though.

Something else crossed my mind. I'd get as much oil out as I could,loosen all the bolts then get somebody on the pipe wrench on the PTO,then try to get a big screwdriver in between the cover the housing up front. Get them to turn it right as you lift. Maybe it'll pop in and you can do it with only loosing a gallon or so.
