  1. The spool seals were just o rings, replaced them and all the o rings for the fittings from a large kit I keep on hand, also found a broken spring on the weak side, I believe it was binding, found a matching spring at the hardware store and it seems to be working fine now and dry, time will tell.
  2. So I’ve been running this little dozer for a while now and everything has been working just fine, I’ve been doing a pond clean out since it’s so dry here and noticed my left track was intermittently not braking when I pulled the left lever, seems the hotter it gets the more noticeable it is, I noticed some oil under the machine and traced it back to the steering valve spool seals, left side is noticeably worse, could this leak effect the left steering brake application and are these seals available or will it be a find something that fits project, everything else is working fine.
  3. Oil is clean, specs on the oil bucket does say hy-tran equivalent among other things, from the looks of the steady stream leaking from the flywheel housing it’d be getting all new fresh oil every few days, owner doesn’t want to sink the money into the machine to repair the converter leak, labor wise it could get pretty expensive.
  4. Looking at another TD7E to purchase and have a question about the transmission oil, I know that the transmission pulls good in all speeds but the torque converter obviously has a leaking seal since when it’s running there is a steady stream coming from the drain hole in the bottom of the flywheel housing, I know the guy has been running universal tractor hydraulic/transmission fluid , not hy Tran for a while, question is, any reason this would damage the transmission, I wouldn’t think so but figured I’d ask, I know the torque converter needs to come out and be re sealed but just curious about the transmission also, it doesn’t leak and feels strong so.
  5. Here’s the suction hose, its ugly, and the strainer, the glue come loose on the ends, I was surprised at how clean the inside of the transmission was though, very little sediment and no metal or anything, I was just expecting worse I suppose.
  6. That’s it, thanks, now just to find one, could you tell me which parts book you found that in, I have the the correct operator and service manuals for the big power shift trans but no parts book, not sure which edition has the big transmission in it .
  7. Anyone have the part number for the suction screen in the Td7e early big transmission, the glue holding mine together has given up .
  8. I believe I’m gonna replace the rotten hose on the suction line and clean the suction screen and see if that clears up the cavitation problem so I can make sure the converter is working ok before I pull it out to reseal it, maybe go ahead tear into it and check it out, the transmission holds and shifts good but I’m thinking the pinion or pto seal is leaking into the diff case so I may snatch it out while I’m that deep into it.
  9. Just an update but I pulled the plug and put a vent line on the torque converter, still dribbles oil out of the hole in the bottom of the flywheel housing so I’m thinking leaking seal now.
  10. It’s called elitism, common trait in every left leaning person, they think they know what’s better for you than you do, and believe you can’t be anything but stupid if you don’t agree with their opinions.
  11. That hole is plugged on this machine, any reason why that would need to be plugged for any reason, internal leak etc ?
  12. Td7e, I’ve noticed clean oil coming from an open hole at the bottom of the flywheel housing, this hole is threaded with paint in the threads so I assume it’s been open for quite a while, I’m thinking torque converter input seal leaking or the converter itself maybe, the op manual mentioned a vent, I have no vent that I can find, but there is a plugged hole in the converter housing just behind the dash panel, any ideas or opinions?
  13. If anyone needs an extra dose they can have mine.
  14. I live in a small rural county, less than 22k residents, the majority of whom work in the Houston, Beaumont metro areas, refineries etc, we’ve had three deaths attributed to covid, one male 55 with pre existing health issues and a woman in her 50s suffering from terminal cancer in a facility where my dil is a reg nurse, and a lady in her 50s I know nothing about, .01% death rate, the terminal cancer patient was tested positive with no symptoms other than fever caused by sepsis from her severe cancer lesions, like I said in another post, we’ve had more drug related deaths than from covid, I don’t deny the existence of covid, the reaction is greatly exaggerated imho.
  15. There have been more drug related deaths in my country than have been attributed to covid.
