I went to change the oil filter on this TE 20 and found the PO has welded the oil filter cap completely on the oil pan! WOW! Why would someone go to that much trouble if there was a problem why not change the pan? It's a good looking weld so it must have been off the tractor when it was welded. Amazing!

Shucks Don, I am fairly sure if you look in the archives you will find the same thing in there at least two more times. Some people like to weld. LOL

It doesn't look to be damaged in any way. Farmerizing is one thing but to remove and weld when you can get a new one easy, why bother? They have em new here for @ 150 + ship.

My TO20 it like that. To change the filter I have to drop the pan. Makes it really tricky getting everything in there lined up. I should buy a new pan some day maybe..but this one doesn't leak!

My To-20 is nearly bone stock. But my recent TE-20has the welded filter access too. No provisions were left for a filter after removing the oil pan.

Oil pan leaks can be stopped with Seal-All. Avaialable at Freds and Dollar General stores (discount 'dollar' type stores) here in Tennessee. I have to use it on my TO-20.

The te20 and to20 have a different oil pan set-up. the te20 uses a special nut to drop the filter cover. as near as we could tell, this nut was used on a very early model Renoult car. I torqued too hard on the nut and broke it. My 82-year-old friend glued the nut back together to use it for measurments, and he machined a new nut from stainless steel. I supposesomeone that had broken theirs welded an acceptable replacement. The original nut cannot be purchased.

The replacement pans I've found say they fit TE or TO. The 's e x bolt' (had to get past the potty filter) on the existing cover looks to be oem. The stud from the engine is a little off kilter but I can straighten that when I replace the pan. That's the only thing I can figure is it's off far enuff that it leaked so he welded it. A simple tack weld would have done and it could be ground off and retacked when the oil change was done. At this point I'm guessing. They sure went to a lot of trouble to screw it up. It'll be interesting to see what I find when I change it. Btw, do I need to take the long rods on each side of the engine off to replace the pan?
