has anyone used a permanent filter for the hydraulic system on a 400 series

Haven't done it yet Boomer but I'm thinking about sticking one over there someplace. Probably pick a remote filter setup at Summit Racing or someplace like that.I've got my hyd system tore apart and it would be a good time to think about it doing it.

There is an Ingersoll filter head with the ftgs on Ebay right now for $50.

Boomer,
Space is at a premium on these tractors to begin with and secondly..... it all depends on the year of the tractor because the plumbing changed slightly. The filter must be installed on the return line, between the OUT port of the travel valve and the IN side of the oil cooler. The engine under the hood would also affect the location as would ergonomics of getting on and off as well as operating pedals and levers. I don't know why you are thinking of the right-hand side of the dash tower. I believe that the one's I've seen are close to the front on the left side.

Pics of my install are in my gallery
Used the factory head, $20 from Brian.
Makes a handy spot to drain the system.
YMMV

As I said, it mostly depends on which year of tractor you are working on. If your tractor makes it easy to add a filter between the cooler and the tank, then no problem. Go for it. What needs to be avoided is putting the filter on the suction side of the pump and in any spot where high pressure will take place.

a good looking install on the filter.
in my CASE, i think it would hit my snow caster lift arm.

:oops:
I never considered models with the "over the axle" lift arm. It works damn skippy on units with the "under" mechanism. Cheap and easy/peasy.
