I am getting back to the 317 restore and one of the first parts to go back in the frame will be the hydraulic valve. I got it out and cleaned it up and it looks in extremely good shape for a 33 year old valve. I'm wondering if the spools have been rebuilt as there are absolutely no wear marks at all on the actuator shafts where they come out of the valve body and attach to the linkage. Even when you pull the spool shafts out and look at the full travel of the shaft it looks new. This tractor has a lot of hours on it and it just doesn't seem right that these parts would look so new. This tractor is hard to figure out. It was obviously in some sort of accident that involved a roll over and I have had to replace just about all of the steering from spindle to steering wheel but it also had a lot of new parts like the entire PTO clutch and battery, ignition switch, stator and voltage regulator. The drive shaft was also newish. It appears that a lot of work was done to keep this going over the years.
