I have a 1026R that has about 100 hours on it and it is about 5 years old. The original hydraulic filter blew out the seal and lost all of the oil, I replaced it and the second filter lasted about 30 minutes before it blew out the seal on the oil filter. The third filter lasted about 1 hour before it blew out the seal. The second filter was tightened to specifications, 1 turn after seating, the third filter was tightened to 1 and 1/8 turns. The tractor is now at the dealer and they have no Idea what is causing this, ANYONE have any idea what can cause the pressure to increase and blow out the seals???

Are you certain the original filter gasket was removed with the filter?

When I did my first change on my 2210 I had the same issue - oil leaking from the filter seal. When I removed it I found the original filter gasket stuck fast to the housing.

I had the same thing happen to an engine oil filter on a car 26 yrs ago. Never happened again!

Yeah - have it happen once and it makes you look twice the rest of your life.
What fluid is the OP using in the hydraulics?

It is NOT the seal from the previous filter
IT is not the oil seal!!!! John Deere would not have put 2 oil seals on the first filter.

It is NOT the seal from the pervious filter

Proper troubleshooting procedure would be to assume nothing and verify everything - stranger things have happened.

It's ok. We are just trying to help narrow this down and it wasn't stated that this was already checked and verified. :thumbup1gif:

I can understand your frustrations but I figured that John Deere would tighten all the bolts on my brand new tractor but turns out even JD makes mistakes during assembly. So it's not out of the question to ask if there was two seals installed from the factory or missing one during a filter change and doubling up. Take a deep breath and think back through what lead to this event and maybe something new may come up. Hope the dealer finds out what's causing the issue, nothing worse than a brand new tractor that you can't use. If the dealer finds the problem, please post so we can learn as well.:bigthumb:

The OP stated this was a 5-year old 1026R with ~100hrs. From his description it sounds like the original filter was in place for the entire 5 years and 100 hrs. at which time the filter blew out the seal. The 2nd filter then lasted 30 minutes and blew out and the 3rd filter lasted an hour and then blew out.

I believe the filter is on the return/low pressure side of the system, so for it to blow there must be a blockage somewhere that is making pressure build.

Has the return screen every been removed and cleaned? Is the fluid clear? Machine stored indoors? I'm thinking worst case here but it's possible the fluid has grown an algae and is plugging the filter and screen.

I’ve read this post twice now. Where are we at on the oil seal, did the seal blow out or not? I’m kind of feeling :crazy::crazy: right now.

I put a oil filter on my Hemi Engine and did not notice the rubber seal stuck on the engine! So when I put the new filter in it blew out the seal just coming up to pressure. Pulled the filter saw the problem took out the old seal and put the new filter back on with it's seal on the bottom. Bet that is happening to this guy.

The thread on hydraulic filter on a 1023E, 1025R and 1026R is actually on the charge pressure circuit for the propel system.
The only filter these tractors have on the implement side of the hydraulic system is the suction strainer in the bottom of the differential.

Does it look to you guys that the filter is pressurized by the charge pressure relief valve, which has no stated relief pressure value?
