How NOT to change oil in the stearing gear housing

Postby fire escape » Fri Jan 19, 2007 3:43 pm

This oil was sooo thick in my super A after 20 years. It would not flow. I put a spot light on it till it was good and warm. Still nothing. I could not run it to warm it up.

Then it hit me!!! I'll take my air tank and let it go inside the fill port.
BOY DID THAT WORK, but I advise not to do it. Look what it did.

What a mess. It shot about 15 feet across the garage, and the oil left on the tractor is so thick it won't run off.
I got it out though.
More up dates as I screw up. Still having fun.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Looks like something I've done before.

Old tractors. When I purchase them. I park them inside, remove the drain plugs from the transmission, differential and finals. Then put a bucket or large pan under the drain. Let set for several months. It takes a while for the 140 weight gear lub to drain out, but it does drain.

I have an excuse. CRS.

If you read the post "steam /pressure wash" it might help on the clean up. :lol: :lol:

You showed us what happened to the tractor and floor . . . but if you were standing there pointing that air hose into the gearbox, how much ended up on you??

Lucky I was standing out of the firing range.
My tire got it.
Presure washing is next. Just waiting on the weather.
