So, while I was removing the crude from around the transmission & cooler, I noticed a shinny spot. Made me wonder what was rubbing. When I lowered the seat, I saw that the seat sits on the tranny cooler. Is that the was they are designed? If not, can anyone tell from the pictures what is assembled wrong?

Check the front of the fender pan, where it sits about the tunnel. There should be rubber stoppers below the latches.

I had a look and the rubber stoppers are still there. Maybe they are too short? Any other ideas?

Are there any breaks on the weld seams anywhere? Right side seat bolts don't look to be the issue...

Your last picture looks like a gap in the weld to the support. May be letting the seat sag just a little.

I agree with michiganmobileman, I had a Simplicity 3314 that had a similar problem, mine had been backed into something or run into and tweaked the seat pan a little.You are going to have to find a way to close the gap between the hinge and seat pan and tack weld it.

You should be able to remove the seat and then with some blocks and bar clamps (not saying a BFH might be needed too) pull that back together and reweld.

Thank you for the input! I had a look & yes, both welds have failed. I will try to sort that out over the next (???) couple of days.

You may be surprised how much force it takes to bend that seat pan back into shape. I know I was.

I final had some time to look at this issue again, now that I have the tractor in the shop to change the seals. The front seat support bracket is also slightly bent. There is also a crack in the frame that will need some attention. At least I have something to try out the repaired welder on now ...
