  1. Okay hold on. 

    First, Bolt 18 you completely remove, this closes the filter oil supply valve and drains the filter housing so you don't have a mess when you pull the filter cover.

    Second, the valve in the picture is an anti drain back valve between the rear filter and the front one.  It's located in the front filter housing i believe, hydraulics will function fine without it.  My 5488 had the same valve loose when I split it, they are held by a cheesy washer with a spring, I put a tack weld on mine to hold it in permanently, I'll see if I can find some pics.

  2. In my opinion there are three ways to build an M.

    Stroked 1 inch x 4.25- 4.375 bore, 350 CID good honest 90 horse, cheap build, runs forever

    Stroked 1.75-2" x 4.375 =421 or 436 CID is a very stable build capable of 150 horse or more, more expensive block work, 

    Big bore engines, 4.750-5.125" x 7.75-8" stroke, 530- 660 CID, 250 horse plus, very expensive build,

  3. Yes sir, always make a point to attend memorial day remembrance in our small town with my young family, explain to my kids how we have our freedoms and what prices have been paid to keep them, always gets a somber and respectful attitude from my kids, they stand at attention through the entire ceremony or they get a kick in the ass!

    if someone is cranking out 300hp i can only imagine the fuel cart in tow 


    Good luck finding a tractor that can do the same work on less fuel.  Our 9270 or 7240 can't touch the efficiency of the 5488.
