superih Posted June 26, 2018 Share Posted June 26, 2018 Dirt is worked, crops are in and sprayed and growing so now I finally have some time to post my project from last winter. My 5488 has around 2500 hours now, about 400 hrs on an engine major, having owned it for 3 years now I've been slowly rebuilding it to like new condition. I purchased the tractor with a known oil leak between the speed and range housings. Come to find out the trans had been updated but whom ever put the tractor back together did not get the bolts holding the speed and range together tight letting the gasket behind the auxiliary fuel tank push out and leak oil. All of the bolts were very loose. I've been collecting parts for the last couple of years getting ready to split and fix the leak, check the trans and add updates that I wanted, so here we go! Day before tear down, washing the corn field off the tractor! Found this valve and spring in the PPH pump suction line, followig pic is where it was supposed to go and this is what they are supposed to look like installed with this wanky spring washer. I ended up putting a washer on the valve stem and a bead of weld so that it cannot come off again. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
