What should I do?

Recommended Posts

Please see my previous two topics to get familiar with what I have. Tonight I removed the two magnet drain plugs on my Eaton 850 hydro and I found some small metal fillings on them. Not a lot but there was definitely some metal on them. Should I continue to replace the oil and filter or should I take the hydro to a dealer for a rebuild. By the way the oil was very clean and it smelled like oil should.

Depends on what you call a small amount. Some fillings to us would fell like a rock in our shoe to a hydro tran. However if you detect no drop in performance, continue to do the fine job your doing on regular service and mow on. BTW, thats what the magnets on the drains are for. So they catch this stuff instead of the gear rotor sections of the pump.

I've kind of got the tractor tore apart and it would be easy to drop the hydro and take it to the dealer. I guess I'm not sure if I should change the $26.00 filter and 6-1/2 quarts of oil just to find out that it didn't help.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
