Tranny leak at control lever

Recommended Posts

paull
My Vickers tranny (on a 416H) just developed a leak at the point where the control arm which governs the forward and reverse speed goes into the tranny. Big fix? Little fix? Shoot the thing? Another point, this tractor went from years of warm, cuddly basement storage to a cold shed (this year). Can the cold have caused some steel contraction leading to the leak. This often happens to shut down boilers. I'm waiting for things to warm a bit to see if this is the case. In either event, I still may need to fix the leak. Whats in there? O-ring, generic oil seal?

The housings were line bored crooked at the factory and sent out that way. Installing new o-rings is a tempoary fix but dose not last. Machine and install bushing with O-rings , housing will never leak again. More than 90% of the housings I have seen were line bored crooked. Leaky housing dose not affect performace of the pump unless you run it low on fluid. Just messy in the garage. Mark

Hope the warmer temps.'fix it' but don't bet on it.The housing that the shaft goes through wears and needs to be completely taken apart,line bored out,to oversize,and bushings installed with new o-rings inside the case.NOT an easy OR cheap fix as Vickers didn't use bushings and seals in the first place![bad design idea indeed.]Sorry for the bad news! dlc

      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 
      Paul
