    Fordson Major

    Hi-I can't get the plate off that holds the filter on the rear differential. I've taken the plate off that has the drain plug in and removed 8 bolts from the larger plate, 4 I think hold the filter on, the filter moves freely, the other 4 secure the plate. The plate is free at the front but apart from a 1/8 inch gap at the rear won't budge despite hammering in a bolster to try to dislodge it, almost seems as though there's a grub screw or similar holding it but I can't see anything. Any advice will be gratefully received, regards, Andy

    You should only be removing the four bolts that hold the small plate with the drain plug on.The filter should be accessible then.It's a while since I was in there on my P Major but am nearly sure that next plate won't come off until you pull the PTO shaft out of the back.If you are only wanting the filter out(which is a washable gauze),only the small plate needs to come off.
