    Need some help, trans oil filter hit by drive shaft, snapped filter mounting threads.

    Hi,

    I could really use some help. I was mowing the lawn on my 1023e only the second time since I bought it used from Padula. Has a 54d Mower deck. Mowed the front lawn fine then I felt a slight vibration along with a bang. This is when I noticed hydraulic fluid leaking and the hydraulic filter rolled out from under the tractor. It looks like the rear part of the drive shaft came off the spline and hit the hydraulic filter busting it off the mounting stud, I am trying to see if the stud that holds the hydraulic filter on can be repaired or replaced. I am also trying to understand why the rear couple came off or disconnected.

    I can't tell if the housing for the hydraulic filter mount it replaceable or if the thread section that holds the filter on can be replaced or repaired. I am new to this tractor. The dealer installer the mower deck so I didn't think I had to do anything to adjust it.


    Any suggestions or comments would be great.

    Sorry to hear about your problem . I think there is a thread somewhere about a similar situation with another member's tractor . Hopefully someone chimes in with more experience than I have .

    The filter threads are made into the front cover of the transmission. It will have to be replaced in order to fix it properly. There's a chance a very good fabrication shop could reattach the threaded portion, but the cover will have to be removed for that to be done and by the time you pay the labor for the repair you've probably paid for the new cover.

    It's not a good spot to be in, that's for sure.

    If the dealer installed the mower deck I would be on the phone threatening to call a lawyer unless they fix it.

    For the other person this happened to, it was a few thousand dollars to fix if I recall correctly. There was just no way for them to fix it without replacing that section of the housing.

    Is it an autoconnect mower deck? With the auto connect on the driveshaft? They definitely had something not hooked up right.

    Very sorry to hear this... maybe you can post some pics?

    Padula has been pretty good about most things with me. I'd give them a call this morning and tell them exactly what you said here. They put the mower deck on and the PTO shaft came off the 2nd time you used it and did the damage. I'd hope they'd make it good.

    The folks at Padula Brothers are straight shooters. I'm sure that they'll either repair under warranty or take responsibility to make it right.

    On another note I think it's outrageous that the new 1 Series hydraulic filter nipple is cast into the transmission cover. Poor design predicated by "value engineering" that will most likely haunt others at their own expense down the road.

    Agree 100%, cost savings over quality, just like the fact that these tractors are made with cast aluminum transmission housings, cheaping out to stay competitive in price.

    This is also why I am VERY opinionated against the auto connect, which seems to be the common denominator in these pto shaft failures.

    Thanks for the welcome and the information.

    Unfortunately there was no way to repair the threads to the cover housing.

    I am working with Padula's on the repair. They have ordered the parts and should be installing them next week. Looks like it is going to cost a few $$$ to get it fixed. Keep our fingers crossed it doesn't break the bank.


    Thanks everyone
