One thing about it, you will know what you got when your done. And hopefully will get many more years of service from it.

That is the end goal….  Fix it and hopefully get another 7000 plus hours out of it.

What 88 series service tools did you buy?

They are the OTC tools for the 88 series tractors.   I’ll take a pic of them when I get back down to the farm.

I’d like to see a picture of what you got. Bought a bunch at dealer close out auction a few years ago. Haven’t had to use them yet so don’t really know if everything is there

@88seriesrestorer Hey Mike. My brother got parts from you today.  Quick question.  The synchro retainers, how important are they?   Once together are they needed?? Thanks.

Wow

That really shows us novices how it all goes back together.

We are new to this as well.  First 88 series we’ve been into.

Anyone have any issues with the neutral switches?    This one was folded over, got it straightened out and back adjusted but it wants to catch and fold over when it’s adjusted to where the switch works.

Kind of hard to tell from the pictures, but be sure to lube the shaft and gears when assembling,  or they may seize to the shaft on start up, before the pressurized lube oil gets to them.  The thrust surfaces of the gears and thrust washers need lubrication also.

That’s the neutral start switch, right? I relocated mine so it is now a “parking brake on start switch”.

We oiled the shaft when going together and are going to pour oil over gears and bearings before range and speed get mated.   Also are going to force some oil thru the shafts.  Or is there a better way??   Thanks.

So long as you lubed the shaft before sliding the gears on you should be fine. I just though that looking at the pictures things looked a little "dry". Forcing some oil into the shaft sure would not hurt anything either.

Yes it is,   Here is my scrap metal engineered update.   Time will tell if it hold up, but seems to work smoothly and doesn’t want to catch and bend anymore.

The inside of your transmission housings are Grey. Mine are primer red. Thx-Ace. 

They are closer to black in person, lighting makes them look grey.   Yours must be an early model Ace?

The motor came apart this weekend to see what parts we need.  Pressure tested cooling system before it was tore down to see where coolant was leaking in pan #2 was culprit.   Also found where excessive blow by came from.  #6 had a broken ring.  There was scoring on piston near piston pin ends on a few.     Now the question of what kit to get???
