627 yeoman tranny plug

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Anyone know if the plastic fill plug for the tranny on a 627 Yeoman is available anywhere?  Mine is split.  My parts diagram seems to say it is a 3/8 pipe plug, but I am sure it is bigger, more like a 3/4.  Anyone have any info on this?  I can get a steel plug but would kind of like the plastic one if I can find one.

I've been puzzled by pipe dimensions before. They designate a pipe as 3/8" by its inside diameter opening, not by the outside thread. A 3/8" pipe would be about 3/4" at the thread. This truck driver has learned this hard lesson removing cast iron radiators from a room (had to cap the pipe) and having to make multiple trips to the hardware store to get it right, while doing a little light home renovation while on vacation.

It is my experience that those plastic plugs are quite common. I though I had an extra one for you, Steve, but I have not found it yet. Have you tried your local tractor dealer scrapyard? Tom

Thanks for the responses!  It is a  3/4 pipe thread, and I picked up a steel plug today and installed it.  I am a bit confused as to why the parts book does not have a 3/4 pipe plug listed, maybe a misprint?  Anyway, the Yeoman is happy again and ready to start lawn mowing season.  Only problem is they are now calling for a chance of snow later this week!  Good thing the winter tractor is still ready to go too!

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
