  • I have a 1953 Ford Golden Jubilee. I had the motor rebuilt buy a "profesional" shop. But, ever since the oil preasure has been lower then it should be. 30lbs when cold at say 2000 rpms. Thens it drops as the engine gets warm. They installed a brand new oil pump when it was rebuilt. Being as it's been a couple years since it was rebuilt, I decided to pull the oil pan and look at the oil pump preasure releif valve, and the preassure tube rubber gasket. Well, as soon as I pulled the pan I saw the problem! They put the rubber gasket on the preasure tube, BUT failed to screw the nut on that squeezes the rubber gasket tight to the tube. Every thing else looks good, and I don't use the tractor much, so hopefully no damage. Now, I'm having a problem finding the round rubber gasket that goes around the preassure tube. I also need a preassure tube to oil pump gasket (wich I can make if needed), and oil pan gasket (and I have found those). I'm trying to find one supplier to buy it all from, so I'm not paying three different places shipping. Any help/suggestions appreciated.

  • Your source for that seal might be the same place I got a similar seal for a Fergy.
    My local hydraulic shop. Take in your tube with the old seal and a parts diagram.
    If the counterman has any smarts, he can find it in his catalog and get it for you at about $3.
    Just maintain the attitude, of "Let's try that." I really don't believe the local hyd shop is going to have a book or reference to your antique machine. I got a perfect replacement when I chased mine down.

  • Thanks, I never gave a hyd shop a thought. However, I went to my local new Holland dealer, and they pulled it up on there computor. $21.00 just for the rubber preasure tube seal, $3.00 for the pearsure tube gasket, and I think $6.00 for the oil pan seal. Should be hear in three days! Very pricey for the rubber seal, but I use the tractor to plow my snow, so I want to get it back together. Thanks again for replying.

  • Yeah. My hyd shop charged me about $1.47 for that tube seal. Well, the dealer should thank you for helping them keep the lights on and the heater going. Maybe at least they can gift wrap it for you. With a gold bow.
    Oh well, at least it should be working soon enough for you.
