Hi,

 

The transaxle filler hose plug on my recent purchase MF12 is missing.  I drained the transaxle fluid and it had some water in it.  I've looked it up on AgcoPartBooks.com (item 10 in the attached PDF) and the PN is 833834M1 but they are NLA.  I'm going to make a plug.

 

My questions are:

1) What does the OE plug look like (anybody have a detailed picture handy)?

2) Is the plug vented?

 

Thanks,

Andy.

For my MF12 I used a garden hose male end replacement with the fill hose clamped over it and then used the cap from a radiator flush kit to cap it off. I have heard of some just using a 1/2' bolt put inside the hose to plug it off.

The plug is still available from Caplugs. Apparently you can get it for free if you use their "request a free sample" option. The part is "WW" series ( Tapered caps and plugs with wide thick flanges), number 7x.  See www.caplugs.com for a full description with all dimensions.

Thanks MFGray.  I have to say that the Caplugs plug doesn't look like the blurry plug image on the AgcoPartBooks site (see my attached PDF above).  The plug on the AgcoPartBooks site seems to have a stem which protrudes down into the hose.  The Caplugs plug (see pictures below) doesn't have a stem.

I have always save the cap plugs when I get hydraulic hoses. That is where I found one to fit the hose on my mf12. Gene

You are right - the Caplugs picture doesn't look very much like the AgCo parts diagram, but neither does the hose it fits into, which has a distinct bend - not shown in the pdf either.

 

I may be wrong, but I have a '72 MF12G and a '66 MF10 from different sources and both have yellow plugs with "Caplugs WW-7X" on the bottom. I think the AgCo parts diagram is a not very accurate in this case.

Thank you for the information about the Caplug.

 

I went ahead and made myself a nice plug on my lathe using a 1 inch aluminum rod.  I hear that you all like pictures so I've attached a few below.

 

Andy.

Nice work! I love having access to lathes. It's times like this when a simple little thing just comes out so nice!

I think it needs to be powder coated in something like safety orange now...

I see that you fellows were discussing the filler hose plug back in March.

A couple of people mentioned that they thought it should be vented.  I think that I'll drill a small hole in mine for a vent.
