If the relief valve is stuck releasing the oil back to the sump will you not see turbulence? I have drained the fluid down to just below the top of the relief valve and see no turbulence.
I was able to get a finger on the T and confirmed it was moving with the Touch Control lever. Is it possible for the spool to become detached from the T shaft?
My first impression was the oil was clear and clean however as I have drained it, that in the lower area of the sump does not appear as pure. Would you advise I drain, flush and refill before I go any further?
This tractor has spent most of the last 20+ years only being occasionally started and used. Mowing with the sickle bar was the heaviest work it's done in at least 10 or 15 years.
