I have a 1987 Ford LGT14D tractor with a rear Tiller on it.
I was siphoning out the gear lube in the lateral chain housing and I got a lot of water and thick sludge. (My first time swapping out the lube)
I want to pull the cover and clean it all out.
I can't seem to find out if it needs a gasket or a silicone gasket to put on there.

I have the manuals and it shows nothing about it.
New Holland's website doesn't seem to show anything for the tiller implement.

ANY help will be great!

Maybe gasket will  stay together enough to re-use with a little sealer?  Many just use slicone now days, I've never liked the mess working with that. Even company's building things have gone that route to be cheaper.  I once had a Horse tiller that needed a real long full case gasket between the gear case halves. No longer available is what I got. I had to cut my own from paper material I got at auto store. Easy to do. Best to have the hole punches tho to make the bolt holes, much nicer.

windshield mastic works good on large parts that see alot of oil.Accually it works good on tire beads to but good luck getting the tire back off without cutting or burning it off lol.

 

This stuff is NASTY to clean off but works very very good.I used this stuff on a couple old Snapper chain drive gear boxes and was very impressed on it's performance.Beats the heck out of permatex that's for sure.And your parts will stick together as soon as they touch lol.

 

A thin bead the whole way around on 1 surface is all you need.Guarantee it will never leak again.

 

Here is the stuff I used.It keeps for a couple years if you cap it good.You can also use it to temporarily fix rubber engine and transmission mounts on a vehicle till you can get a new one.Used it on my brothers 1990 Dodge Daytona front engine mount when it blew apart.He ran it after I fixed it for a couple months till he could afford to buy a new mount.

To find a gasket you might have to contact NewHolland and give them the model number off of the tiller.Price is going to be ridiculous though.

Wonder if the Sperry Rand New Holland Factories in Mountville, Belleville, and Lancaster, Pa are still going?Or did they go overseas like most of the others did?

The one in New Holland is still thriving. Not sure about the others.

Get some gasket material, and make your own!!!
The surfaces aren't that great that meet together, and use a good gasket sealer on both sides...problem solved;)

So I did find the right parts for it.
It does have a gasket. New Holland wants $52 + for it!
So.. I'm making my own if the one that comes off isn't in good condition.

Thanks for all the insight guys. I'm looking forward to getting this all ready!

Just a quick update!
I changed out the lube in chain housing and the gearbox on top of the tiller.
Housing calls for a 140 weight and the gear box calls for a 90 weight.
Used Amsoil in both and made my own gasket!
I wish I took more pictures of the gasket to share, but here is it after tilling up the land.

Which would have not happened if I didn't have the help from this forum. So thank you to all!
