I just bought this tractor and was getting ready to service it and I’ve read where several people say plug it off and do away with it I was just wondering what to do with it.

I wouldn't, it is there for a reason. If you don't want to deal with it where it's at, you can buy the spin on filter version for the 8000 series, and relocate it, this way it is easier to change, and you still have the filter.

Take it off and change oil more often. Have saw too many failures from blown gasket. A engine rebuild is costly compared to changing oil more often.                   MACK

The previous owner of my 7050 had that canister removed. I change the oil every 75 to 100 hours. I think the manual calls for 150 or 200 hour oil changes. Those bypass canister filters are a pain.

They can leak, as Mack said, and cost you a complete engine failure. The orifice inside can plug with filter lint fuzz, which then makes the filter inoperable and it does nothing. So, why even have it on there ??  I've removed them by the dozens over the years.

What about the 8000 series kits what’s involved to changing it to the spin on style? Do they cause any problems?

That's what everyone changes over to.

I've had my 7060 for about 10 years. It came with the spin on 3rd filter. There's been no problems with it.

I done this to mine few weeks ago, I got rid of the big cannister lube-refiner,, mostly cause of the reasons Mack said. I put the spin on type by-pass filter on it,I got the parts from Worthington tractor parts on my way to Hutch this summer,,I posted pics few weeks ago,,so go back a ways an see if ya can fine the post.. I'd put a link,,,but sometimes me and this puter don't get along to well...

Okay I’ll try and find a spin on kit from the 8000s to put on it sometime whenever I get a minute but for the time being the canister is leaking to plug it off you just cap the holes off from the 3 spots where it ports into the block?

Plug the outlet at the engine oil filters base, Leave all lines as-is except for the one at the oil filters.

Mine only has 2 ports, the 3rd line was a filter drain
1line from the filters/oil cooler to the large bypass (cannister),1 line back to the block on the LH side behind the starter

Did you check out my "out with the old,inn with the new"?

So it's okay to just plug the line on the left hand side of the filter base, just above the left filter. I've had trouble with my bypass leaking ever since I changed the filter last year, and I try and service every 100 hours anyway.
