Greg, the nuts were definitely not locknuts, so I used loctite red. Tonight I managed to remove both my hydraulic suction and return filters. The suction filter only came out after I removed the side cover that the PTO engagement lever goes through. This allowed me to remove the yoke and sliding gear that engage and disengage the PTO, which then allowed me to rotate the suction filter tube up and out. The suction filter was covered and permeated with black sludge and flakes of red paint from the inside of the sump. I have a replacement return filter on order. When you flushed your hydraulic lines did you completely remove them from the tractor? Any tips there would be appreciated. I would really like to replace those cross shaft seals since I have them ordered and the fluid is out. There are some signs of leakage at the cross shaft (some caked on black greasy dirt). I'm so close, I just need that loader out of the way. So tonight I removed the right fender, right axle and right trumpet. I knew the trumpet had a bunch of sludge in it still, so I was going to at least remove the axle to clean it out anyways. I removed the 4 bolts holding together the spider that connects the loader pump and the shaft. So now the only thing holding the loader to the tractor is the 4 bolts that hold a plate to the front of the tractor. Thursday I will try to remove those and jack the loader up in the back. I figure I can lift both sides at the same time using the shop crane and the floor jack, lifting at the back where it mounts to the trumpets. I just need it to lift up about 2 inches to clear that cross shaft. Thanks for the support and advice. It is very helpful and encouraging. :)
