  • Some History Showing On The Old Girl
  • A bit of history is showing on the Old Girl. At some time there was an event that resulted in something being throw at force in the hydraulics or differential. There is a corresponding place in the housing on the tractor; you can see the bulge under the gasket. There is a hole in the differential housing but I thought maybe it was normal. I seem to recall that water got into the fluid and Dad started the tractor on a very cold winter day not knowing that water was in the fluid.

  • The cracked flange seems like a fairly common internal injury. This is what my 2N looked like when I pulled the top cover. I believe this is caused by aggressively backing an implement into or over something that jams the upper lift arms higher than they are supposed to go. Most of the external 3 point parts on my 2N were not original to that tractor. The paint layers I removed were very different from other parts.

    I "fixed" mine by rebuilding part of the flange with a glop of JB Weld. Just enough to create about 1/4" of contact area for the gasket. It turned out better than I thought it might.

    The hole that exposes the ring gear is on all of them. That hole may be clearance and/or to allow the ring gear to throw fluid into the upper pump area.

  • The hole is almost identical to the one in my 2N.

  • Yes, I think that is just clearance for the Ring Gear. The other damage, according to the post I found was that the ram hit. How does that happen?

  • Here is someone that had the same. Stated that it was caused by the Ram Arm extending too far.

  • And another photo, very similar to mine. I think this was there the last we went into the lift.
