Very nice rebuild - I just noticed the thread today and have to say that your work is top notch. I wish I had some suggestions on the foaming oil - but i'm clueless. Could the oil have become contaminated or mixed with another fluid? not sure what that would do - but if water or something was accidentally introduced I supposed it could do this.. then again I have no clue. Good luck - with all you have overcame on this tractor, I figure this will have a much simpler solution. 

 

Good luck,

Nick

I removed the high pressure line from the spool valves and I
held it in the transmission oil fill thats under the seat.
I started the engine and the oil was flowing through the
oil line and I sprayed it into the filler hole and I could
hear the air coming out along with the oil. It was
spitting out the end not a smooth even flow.
The pump is sucking in air from somewhere. I removed
the hydraulic pump and disassembled it and found
the o-rings inside are hard as rocks. The shaft seal
on the pump drive shaft is also hard and it fits
loosely on the drive shaft, I believe this seal is
more the culprit for the air leak. I have found that my
tractor is similar to a White field boss 16 and it looks
like the o-rings and the seal is available on the AGCO
parts website. There is a tractor dealer in New Jersey
that deals with AGCO parts. Here are a few pictures of
the hydraulic lines I removed.

Just catching up with this thread. Your tractor looks super. Nice work. It sounds like the seals may be the issue and you will soon be under way with a very nice setup for snow removal.

I got the new seal and o-rings for the hydraulic pump last week.
I cleaned all of the pump parts and blew out all of the
oil passage ways. I pressed in the new seal and re-staked
the pump body around the outer diameter of the seal.
I put a very thin bead of yama bond on the O. D.
of seal just because. It was very cold when I rebuilt
the pump and I was anxious to try it out so I did not
repaint pump for now. I'll get over it. anyway I primed the
pump and also filled the hi pressure line with hydraulic oil
and bolted both hydraulic tubes to the pump. I was ready
to start the tractor and see what happens. I was very
happy, The pump worked great and with no air in oil.
No more foaming. Saturday I put well over two hours on the
tractor doing some grading and leveling out on the back
of the property and no foaming. I am very happy!
here are a few pictures.

I'm glad to see that you have it working. You may need it this weekend. We are supposed to get a storm on Saturday so NJ will get it Friday night. Good Luck, Rick

Here is a video of the pump repair.

If you are having trouble sleeping this should put you to sleep.

I'm going to try to make a copy of the iseki trailer hitch. Here are
some pictures of a mock-up I made out of wood.
I don't have any measurements so I'm guessing and using
roughly scaled measurements from the sketch in the
parts list.

Here are a few pictures of the hitch I am making.
This is now made from cold rolled steel.
I think I'll use the one I made from wood for a napkin holder.
I'll give it to my wife for mothers day. And that would
be the last anyone ever hears from me! ha ha!

here is another video to sleep by. Its of the machining of the trailer hitch.
After I'm satisfied with the fit I will then weld all of the parts together.

I received a few things in the mail today.
The weeping head gasket has been bugging me
and the water pump is leaking and the shaft
in the water pump is getting very loose and
with my luck just waiting to fly into the hard to find
radiator. So I bought a new head gasket along
with a new water pump. The head gasket I
bought last year was not much of a deal after all.
I though I was doing good getting the first head gasket
for $59 but it started to weep coolant after a few
months. I believe the water pump is the original one
so it has paid its dues. I bought a new Mitsubishi
factory head gasket for $140 ( ouch! ) I hope to
do the head gasket and the water pump in the
next few weeks. Oh the factory head gasket
I just got is far better quality than the first one I installed.

Where did you get the water pump from? Mine is showing signs of wanting to retire.

I bought the water pump from

They sell Mitsubishi parts and I wanted a factory head gasket

and it made since to get the water pump from them

at the same time and ship everything from one dealer.

I bought a dirt scoop on Saturday and it was poring rain as
we loaded it into my mini van. We loaded it with a fork truck.
I was able to drag it onto the bumper and back my tractor
up to it and with a little grunting and groaning I was able
to get it hooked to 3 point and then out and down to the
floor of my garage. It needs sanded and some paint but
other wise its in good shape. My first 3 point implement.
Bolseki got soaked during the unloading process.
Here are a few pictures.
