Can anyone please tell me if the port cap or plug I see on the bottom of the hydraulic pump when I look up from the underside of the 2510 is the plug that has the filter screen (#R27173) for the pump? I am trying to decide if I am lucky enough that the pump is oriented correctly to pull that screen without having to remove the pump? There are several plugs on that pump on several sides, and if I open the wrong one I don't think it is the end of the world getting the piston and springs back in but it would be nice to have a better idea of how much time to budget on this.
The machine was bought in 2014. In 2015 I got around to changing the hydraulic filter and found it had tapeworms (about 6" strand of white teflon tape) in the filter. That fixed the 3Pt hitch chatter but steering is sluggish or delayed and brakes chatter so I looked in the manuals and found 3 screens or strainers. One in the reservoir on the frame behind the filter (R53169), one on the brake Housing (R42684) and the one mentioned above in the pump.
I ordered all 3 screens and a filter and am just going to make a day of it since I am throwing out 9 gallons of Hy-gard while I am at it.
2510 Row Crop, 1967? TYPE 711R SN 010966R
Gasoline, synchro-range transmission, axle or wide front wheels. And I believe it is the 4-piston pump, and may be an early version of that that IDT notes is slightly different on early SN's. Any help on if I can get that screen out of the pump without removing the pump would be great. I see that screen is in a lot of tractors and images online put that pump in a lot of locations, most of which look easier to access than on the 2510. What I can see from below underneath tractor photo is attached. Thanks.
This is a first time post for me a green tractor, and is a pretty simple topic. That should tell me something about what I should do with my red ones and the number of threads they have created over the years. Thanks ahead to any and all who can help.
