   Had to repair my leak on my tractor the other day IMAG0627.jpg When I started to tear it down I noticed my PTO belt had come off. IMAG0628.jpg So I stopped and fixed that IMAG0630.jpg . Now to finish tearing down my MFIMAG0631.jpg IMAG0632.jpg IMAG0635.jpg IMAG0636.jpg IMAG0638.jpg IMAG0639.jpg Found the reason for my leak. But I'm refusing to spend $45 on a couple O rings. My O ring kit, rings were to fat to use so I went up to the automotive store and found one. I was pleased, Put it back together IMAG0637.jpg After putting the controller back on my MF tested it, No LEAKS I'm happy, but then I started hearing a strange noise coming from PTO pulleys, So I tried to locate where the sound was coming from. IMAG0640.jpg IMAG0641.jpg So now I start to tear the rear end apart. IMAG0642.jpg IMAG0643.jpg Thought it was a bearing but nope, it ended up being the pulley itself, so wore out the wobbling of the pulley rubbed up against the frame, making the noise. time for a new one. Well after a whole day working on my MF I'm finally done and its back together.20.jpg

LOL I guess I 4got to update what I did there. I found that the pulley was wore out only on one side so I turned it around then loosened the PRO shaft and moved it back the distance of 1 washer. Eliminating the noise & giving me time to get another pulley ordered. LOL I new you would be the one to find a flaw in my posting lol.

Man, that is a nice tractor. Did you replace the driveshafts? That all looks new.

I found upon tearing my 1855 apart, the PO had removed rear driveshaft and upper pulleys. Maybe one day

No I didn't replace it. The whole tractor had been restored from ground up by oldcowhand a few years back. It's my pride and joy! It has its own home in my back yard lol I take good care of it. Keep it shiny :-)
