Well gang I think after 40 years its time to rebuild teh Vickers in my 3314. It leaks its been acting up and other than that and a nice repaint its all thats wrong with my gramps tractor.

WHats teh best approach? Have it rebuilt? If so where? Buy a rebuilt unit? Same question? I know nothing about these units other than the only thing mecahnical thats ever scared me is automatic transmissions and this thing.....

Ray,

This is a complete guess, but could the Vickers be swapped for a later rear end?

Dave don't follow my advice until you have confirmation since I have no knowledge in this area.

Here's some posts about rebuild, the first one is detailed with pics:

In the above link, I think Ray named a different pic the same as the one in this post, because I don't think a Briggs schematic is going to get it. (Our system posts the latest pic with the name where-ever/whenever it is)
