If you decide to give that tractor away, I drive through Independence every March for a dairy meeting in KC. I can bring my trailer! LOL Watch me not get elected as a delegate this Fall now! Heck though, if you wanted to give it away, I'd make a special trip!:bigrofl:

Glad to hear of the success thus far. Daniel has you covered real well, all I might add is to use a small magnet to get to any fine steel particles that might be hiding inside there, before you put it all back together. Good luck.

A couple pics were blurry, but from what I can see, you have a good unit there! I think it'll be fine!

try to make this my last question on this topic

When buying gasket material to make my own what thickness material and what type of material?

I see lots of cork, and the original gaskets did not look like cork.

Or better yet since you are using Mr Gasket materail may I have the model number of the materail you are using

Again thank you

Exactly! Anytime anyone has ANY question at all, I URGE you to ask it. Someone here is bound to have the answer. I will check my gasket material for a part #, but it IS paper....never cork in this application.
