The newer version of the 633a (can't remember the name) the one that came with my GT18 Craftsman has a release valve for pressure built into the top right side (input side) of the trans.

@MightyRaze Does it almost look like a grease fitting but doesn't stick out as much? I have one of those newer ones too but that's all I can see on it.

I will probably end up adding a vent next time I have the trans out.

Kind of reminds me of a pop-off valve.

Expedition deep in the jungle...ok it was 100 feet from my grandfather's house.

Almost rolled it trying to back down off this dirt pile. It was fairly steep getting up there.
The steering is a bit looser than it once was. Gonna need to shim some things up one of these days.

HASPIN PREP 2020! I decided that I don't want to risk fragging the gear flipped 633 that's been in the #64 since I built it. I'm taking the transmission out using one of the back tires to simulate using stuff available in the field...

I wanted to get an idea of how long a trans swap takes with normal hand tools so I timed it. From tractor completely together to transmission completely out took about 20 minutes. I think with everything ready to go and some practice that could probably be cut in half. If a 2nd person was there to help and maybe with a battery powered impact gun, 25 minutes to swap the transmission would probably be possible. Definately do-able between rounds of the Top Tractor Challenge if necessary.

I was going to swap in one of the new style 633's I have but I found out that the newer ones have wider frame mounts.

I wanted to swap out the gear flipped trans so I can weld the gears before it breaks. I have an older style 633 with the gears already welded ready to go in. The new style one (bare aluminum color one) is really kind of useless to me at this point, but I may be able to mod the case to fit the adventure edition later on.

Also, today I tried aluminum welding for the first time and it didn't go too bad. I didn't expect cast aluminum to weld as good as it did. Note the repaired spot around the upper mounting hole which was cracked. I welded a Z'ed shifter to finally solve the issue of my hand smashing into the belt cover in high gear. I've been talking about doing that for years, pretty much almost since I built it, so it should be nice to try it out. I think it will make things a bit easier, even though I've gotten used to being careful when I shift to 3rd.

The 633 with welded gears is now back in and everything is together. Used the steel pulley which is a lot lighter and should make shifting quicker I hope. The case on the new style 633 is also spaced differently where the input shaft is, so it would take a lot of modifiying to make it work with this frame.

Here's a pic of the new shifter setup. This is where 3rd gear now is, giving plenty of room to shift without smashing your hand into the belt guard at the right. Also it's a bit easier to reach now than it was. Just seems to be in a better spot.

I see the makings of a pit crew forming. Smile

I need to get some people to join yeah. It took only 20 minutes to get everything unhooked and the transmission completely out and on the ground. But today it took 25 minutes to get the transmission back in and trans mount bolts tight WITHOUT hooking up anything else. It's a super pain to line them up, especially alone. Finally I got a bit of help and even then it wasn't easy. You could slot the lower holes in the frame and put studs in the upper trans bolt holes or something to make it quicker. Brake bands went back on quick in only a couple minutes.
