Got it running and driving today!!! There's a couple things I don't know about tho, there's a lever with a hook on the top under the fender on the left side. It pivots about 45 degrees. What does this do? And she also leaks a little trams fluid from a small part on the front of the trans. Ill include a picture of this, it spins freely but I didn't spin it much as I'm not sure what it does. Any helped appreciated ImageUploadedByTapatalk 21371154203.253826.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk 21371154228.435752.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk 21371154245.035851.jpg

Congrats on getting her running! I knew you could do it!

 

I think the hook you are talking about is the hood lock?

 

The valve you turn it with the longer section of pin facing up or down (I can't remember off hand) But one position is for driving and the other is for pushing the tractor when it is not running. I haven't taken my valve out yet, but I have the trans out so I will try taking it off in a little bit to see if there is an o-ring or not.

I just had a thought, maybe it is leaking because you have it in the wrong position? Move it like I said, If it is in the wrong position from what I described then it will not drive or it will move real slow.

Ok here is what the spool valve looks like. There is no type of packing or O-ring on the nut that holds it in. So if it leaks it is one of the main o-rings leaking. Both O-rings are National # 113. the size of both are, 3/32" wide, 9/16" ID, 3/4" OD. If you notice on the rear of the O-ring they are using a nylon spacer (wiper) my front one was out of it's groove and destroyed, so I'm glad I took it out now :D

 

I removed the roll pin to make it easier to get the nut off ( Marked it 1st) then just get a 1" wrench or socket and unscrew the nut. I then just inserted my dental pick into the roll pin hole and pulled the spool valve out.

 

If you take it out to replace the O-rings just make sure the bore is smooth and clean before inserting new ones. also coat the O-rings with a little trans fluid or O-ring grease before putting the spool back in.

 

Good luck.

That is just the vent tube. unscrew it and make sure it isn't blocked, Mud wasps love blocking anything with a small hole in it around here :wallbanging:

Lyon, that is a combination fill, vent, and dip stick.  I wouldn't leave it loose, but only because it might vibrate loose and fall out.  Yours actually looks like it is solid rod, mine is a tube, much like a metal brake line.

 

As far as the valve that is leaking, the long end seems to go straight down for drive, and straight up for free wheeling.  I think it will still drive in the half way position, but it might not drive right and it might cause that device to leak.

Thanks Howard, so it's a dipstick for the hydro? I was wondering how to tell, does it just pull out?
I turned it so it's in drive( still leaks) it seems to drive better now I still susspect it's a little low on fluid

I took a second look at your photo.  That is a tube, but the end is blocked with something.  You remove it by loosening and removing the nut that is at the base of the tube.  You should find the tube pulls out, and extends past the nut by perhaps 2 inches or so.  Somewhere in that length, there is a slit cut in the tube.  That allows air to enter and exit the transmission when it gets hot.  The oil level should be visible on the tube somewhere below the slit.  

     I'd suggest you unplug the tube and see if any of your leaks stop.  Could be that pressure build-up caused by heat is forcing fluid out.  Doubtful, but worth checking.

Yes that is the only way to check it, unless you have one of the ones with the tank mounted under the seat.
