oil pan remove

Postby mario » Sun Apr 19, 2009 8:18 am

It has been a while since my last entry, and my tractor(hobby) has sat ignored since then. Jumping back in I would like to clean the oil pickup area within the oil pan, but am having trouble removing the pan. I have removed the cap screws and can't seem to see if the pan needs to slide forward to remove or is it being stubborn. Don't want to bend anything.

Did you remove the flywheel cover and the bolts on the rear of the pan? If so, it comes right off. It is likely that there is sealer holding it up there, pry it loose gently, it will come down.

Did you take out the three hard ones in the back??

mario: Have you removed each of the three bolts located at the rear margin of the pan? If so, try sliding a thin knife blade between the pan and block. That may break the bond and release the pan. Dan

As Lil Red said, there are 3 bolts in the rear flange of the oil pan. They can be a bear to get to. Either a wobble socket or universal joint is necessary. I have also had success with a 1/4" drive socket set and long extension. You have to remove the front cover from the bottom of the torque tube to get to those 3 bolts.

Thanks all. Are the rear bolts close to hidden. I'll go back and do a better eyeball.

Yes they are kind of hidden.

Dan, That's the way it was with me also, Lil"red beat me to. I was trying to beat the Bigdog. I was going to go back and edit and the other info. As long as the help is given and received that is what counts.

mario: They may be difficult to see but are visible if you are in a well lighted area. As BD said, they are often a pain to remove and replace. Dan

I did successfully,(and quite easily once the fly wheel cover was removed) remove the oil pan. Intake screen was very clean, however sludge was present in pan bottom as well as two half in nuts buried in the sludge. (I know there not supposed to be there.) I will start poking around, but if anyone has any experience with this and can easily pinpoint a source for these two rogue nuts, please inform.
Having fun on my back with bits of debris falling in my eyes,

Mario, If you could post the size of the nuts, or a photo, it might be easier to guess where they are from. There is a good chance that they were accidentally dropped and the PO did not bother to go fishing for them (or take off the oil pan).

When ConnectiKIT pulled his pan, he found a nut that turned out to be the nut that holds the TC pump drive gear in place. Ed

This past Saturday "Deadfoot" leaked a gallon of oil will mowing for 5 hours. Is there a manual that illustrate the steps to take to remove the pan and replace the gasket so that I can try to slow the leak I see at the rear of the pan? Deadfoot is also leaking oil from the clutch access hole. The property is rolling hills and somewhat rough, making for a bouncy ride at times.

FYI ...Deadfoot gots its name from the numerous flats it received trying to run over heavily spiked thorns. A Bottle of Slime in each tire (tube) has done the trick!
