My Super 55 got to the point where it is leaking gear lube so bad it has to be split. I've got the Oliver manual, the special socket for the PTO, and every single seal and gasket in the rear end ready to go. Since I've never had to get into it this deep, I was wondering how big a job I'm looking at and how long do you think I will need to tie up the garage. Reason I ask is winter's coming and Pam doesn't like to park out in the cold.

Quicker and easier than you'd think. Drive some blocks between the axle and frame to keep it from tipping,then unbolt it where the blue tape is in the picture. The dash,steering and everything comes right with the front half so the only thing you have to unhook are the wires to the lights.

Does the rear section get blocked and the front moved forward, or should the front get blocked and the rear moved?

Make yourself some alignment pins as well and however you support the front half make sure you have some adjustment on the height as you will find that out when You slide it together. Also I hope you noticed that some of the seals are different if you have a 518 or a 519 code rear end. Also adjust the PTO clutch before you slide it together. My e-mail is open if you have more questions. J.

I have mine split right now also. You mentioned you have the special socket, are you talking about removing the Clutch Spider retaining nut? The flat nut with the four notches? Here's how I split mine. I put two hydraulic jacks under the frame just behind the rear edge of the front frame, I also backed those up with two 4X4 blocks cut to fit between the floor and the front frame. I then placed a rolling hydraulic jack under the front end of the rear frame. The front frame stays in one place, and the rear frame rolls back, so make sure you have enough clearance behind the tractor to pull the two frames apart. I suggest you take the clutch spider off, as weell as Retainer for the PTO clutch drive sleeve bearing and replace that seal, and the two O-rings between the retainer and the PTO drive gear. Take off the retainer on the rear of the tractor and pull the PTO drive shaft out and replace the O-ring inside the PTO hub. You may not have to do that, but later on if it starts leaking taking the shaft out and lining it back up may be hard. It's easy with the tractor split.

Remember there are two allen screws holding the clutch pack to the shaft. It will save you a lot of time. Don't ask how I know!

Block the front and roll the rear> Look at the main clutch while you are there. Is this an early or late Super 55. Send me an e-mail? J>

Says this item is out of stock. I made one out of pipe, but you can also use a drift punch.
