Completed the conversion to a spin on filter & changed the hydraulic fluid. I took some pictures to help explain the conversion to the spin on filter. Some of them are not the best pictures but hopefully they will still help explain the process.
The connection tubes & spin on filter plate. The tube that is still connected to the filter plate will be used to replace the tube going to the inline filter. This is on the right side of transmission. On the lose there one connecter that is needed in the filter plate.
This is the tube that is removed with the inline filter & not used.
This is the tube that stays with the tractor to connect to the filter & comes from the lift control valve. I was able to modify this tube while it was connected on this side. Removing this line may have made it a little easier but o lot more things would need to be removed from the tractor to disconnect this tube. By being careful & taking the time it can be done.
Shows inline filter removed. The tube that is not connected to any thing is the one coming from the lift control.
This bolt is remove to be replaced by a stud for filter plate mounting.
This is where the tube that stayed with the filter plate connects on the right side of the transmission.
The stud bolt for mounting filter plate.
The filter plate is mounted & this shows about how much will need cut from the tube coming from the lift control.
How much is cut off the tube. It is a flared tube but I had never seen this type of 2 piece connection use on flared connections.
Trying to show more on this 2 piece type connection.
Trying to show more of this 2 piece type connection make sure this is put on the correct way.
All connection made & filter mounted.
The top tube goes to the lift control valve. The lower tube that connects to the center of the filter goes to the right side of transmission.
While filling with hydraulic fluid I added fluid the third time before getting it to stay to the proper fluid level. Add fluid until it starts flowing from the fluid check point. Run tractor going through the different hydraulic functions. Check fluid level & add as needed.
Hopefully this will help any others that are thinking of doing this type of conversion.
