Can someone please tell me the purpose of the bolt circled in the picture. I thought it was a drain plug until I removed it
Thanks . Brian

Probably just an access point to a set screw, mine is just a 1/8" pipe plug. Your picture has me a little confused, looks like the right side of the tractor but clutch and brake are on the left side and 3 point quadrent on the right.

My tractor is a 46 also that Dad bought the year I was born.

It is a pilot bolt that holds a shaft in place, or at least is on mine.

It looks like a 1/4" smooth shaft that is 3 1/2 - 4" long . I was afraid that I may have unhooked something on the inside when I pulled it out.

You may have gotten lucky, looks like it is pin for the reverse idler shaft. Parts books are great.

You did want to rebuild the tranny this year didn't you?

Note to self: "DO 'NOT' REMOVE THIS BOLT!"
Maybe I should black marker it above the bolt as I 'know' I'll forget where I put the note lol

Do you think I have a chance of doing damage to the tranny?
It seemed to go back into the same place and it drove fine last night.
