This tractor was brought to us by a collector based in the North of England. It is in stunning condition for its age and hours.
Reason for Job:
Tractor had partially lost drive in medium gear ranges and was suffering from very jolty gear changes and numerous oil leaks.
Main problems found:
As this tractor is parked in a collection, all internal and external seals were extremely brittle due to lack of use. This includes main piston seals which caused clutch packs to bypass oil; this resulted in slipping clutch packs.
The external hard o-rings were causing a number of leaks.
Front and rear crank seal on engine had failed.
Complete strip down and rebuild of the transmission. Many hours were required to replace all external pipe o-rings and seals to eventually achieve a tractor with zero leaks!
Partial engine removal in order to remove sump to replace front and rear crank seals.
