Mission accomplished hydraulics rebuilt

Postby ShawnAgne » Wed Dec 08, 2021 9:27 pm

Mission is accomplished got the block back on the tractor all the parts back on fired it up and it will now lift and hold the A60 blade. After rebuilding the hydraulics here is my thoughts on the whole process for a SA-140.
1. If you are restoring a tractor just rebuild it, even if you think it works.
2. The HF Valve puller with slide hammer kit is a real time saver over using pliers or what not.
3. It wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be, actually it is kind of simple. Just need to make sure you keep track of what stuff looked like when it came out.
4. Along with O rings I went ahead and replaced the 4 plastic valves and springs A very nice gentleman who live in SC I was put on to who works on Farmalls told me to go ahead and do those since it wasn't holding the blade.
5. The block isn't hard to lift out and in but if you have help it would make it easier, I didn't.
6. Removing the battery and box makes life simpler especially when installing.
7. Take your time pull all the little screws out open up all the passages and take your time flushing it out and cleaning it.
8. Don't use the devils clue (aka Permatex) when installing the gasket. You or the next person may need to open it back up and that stuff is a PITA to remove. There is no need for it. I didn't use it but the gaskets were glued in with something.
9. The O ring on the inside of the pistons doesn't have to be replaced, but if you do put some lock tight on that nut so it doesn't come lose.
10. If you are adding a A60 blade to the tractor and its probably original plan on needing to rebuild the hydraulics. Mine held a mower deck fine but not the A60.

Only thing left I have not done is rebuild an engine. But we'll wait for that.......... :)

Do you remember the part number for the puller you used? I would like to grab one for my block rebuild.

They may have others that will work the only two pullers I used were the two small ones. But yeah wouldn't pay full price for it.

Hey Shawn. I'm in the process of doing the same thing you are. I live in SC. Any chance of getting in touch with the gentleman you mentioned from here? One of my 140s leaks down fairly quickly. Besides that the engine needs to be gone through or replaced. I sure would like to get some guidance and parts procurement info from those of you that have done this.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Give Eric a call at 843-250-4865 he sells parts on Ebay and in talking to him it is how I got the number for the mechanic (Frank) in your neck of the woods. Eric double checked with Frank before giving out his number so I'll do the same.
