Good evening gentlemen,
It’s been a while since I posted anything but I come across a stumper today. I got an 806 in the shop that needs the rear house replaced, cast is broke….long story.
Anyhow I’ve been on a search for parts the last few days and have run across a couple different cast/part numbers. Mine is a 380361R1. I located what we thought was a replacement over at Anderson Tractor in Bluffton, Ohio. When we loaded it up, I noticed theirs was a tad different than mine. Their number is 380361R2. Mine has two green o ring ports right behind where your left foot would be and theirs only has one. We were unable to locate one in the yard that had the two ports like mine. To top that off, the old techs at our local dealer said haven’t seen one in all their years with two orings like mine come thru their shop. I’ll attach some pictures. When did they switch to one port and why?
Now to add to the questions, my top cover also has the two ports. I assume they changed that to one port along the way as well. What does this second port do? Are these pieces interchangeable at all?
This has baffled a lot of people that I’ve talked to. Like I said, the guys at Anderson’s were super helpful but hadn’t seen it before and the techs at Burkharts were stumped as well. I’ve located one from Gene’s Recycling in Attica so I think I’m good on parts now. I’m really just posting this question out of curiosity sake at this point.
I know you guys have alot of knowledge, I figured this might be a good place ask.
