Could there be any chance that this allen plug was screwed in ? Might have been weeping around the threads and tighten by mistake to keep it from leaking ?[ATTACH=CONFIG]14483[/ATTACH]

Hi ALC,
I cant place where this assy is on the machine? Is it internal to the trans? Where can I find the Allen screw? I am the only monkey working on this and I did not touch it. I will check it out if I can find it.

Many thanks

Is the Eaton on the 16 same as the 17? If I pull plug 56 and 39, do i need to drain fluid? Is there a lot of tension on the spring? It is also hard to see exactly where it is in the pic. I will check it out tonight.

Thank-you!

Woo, I am getting confused. Is this an Eaton or a Sundstrand hydro. I see both being mentioned here. Sundstrand has the charge pump draw oil from the reservoir thru the filter and eaton return the oil back thru the filter.

I could have swore that the parts pages were Sunstrand.

Just heading out to the garage. I think that is a Sunstrand as my Eaton does not look similar. I have the posted maintenance manuals and I cant seem to find those ports to the relief valve. But I will check the tractor.

Thanks

OK ALC, I now understand your attachment. I would have to open it up to check that. I know that would be too far down my list. I may run it just to see how long a filter with a bypass will hold out for. I have two others so this one may become parts. Sad thing is it is in perfect shape and runs great. Just the filters blowing apart is a bit of an issue.

Your right I was looking at the plug on the side , the relief screw is inside , I wouldn't think it would screw in on it's own , maybe plugged ? Don't give up !!

Ha Ha! Thanks for the kick in the ass. If I cant get those woodruff keys out of the axle on my other unit, I may be pulling the rearend on this one anyways. Then I might as well go inside! Well, one out of three machines running is not really bad.... : (

Wish I could be more help. I've only run into your problem once and it was my fault . I installed a engine oil pump rebuild kit in my Ford 3400 and the new relief valve had a solid plug cap , the old one had a small hole in it . Well that hole was for the exessive oil to flow back into the pan . As soon as I started the engine the oil filter puffed up and leaked .:wallbanging::wallbanging:

I have a pic or two to share but for some reason on this site I have issues. When the pick computer or URL comes up, I can get no further. If I go to the advanced, the pic manager screen is just gray.

Appreciate all the assistance!
