Oil Leak

Recommended Posts

I have a Simplicity 3112V and it seems to be leaking oil out of the transmission. It appears to be coming from the rear where the shifting rod goes through the case as well as on the side where there are a couple of places I imagine that there would be shafts inside the case. Is this a common thing? Is it an easy fix or am I looking at a dismantling of the transmission?

An overfilled transmission will leak out the shifter rod and axle seals. The shifter rod normally seeps a little anyway. Check the oil level and make it is level with the bottom of the fill level plug threads. Note there are three plugs. A fill plug on top, a fill level plug in the middle, and a drain plug on the bottom. If the level is correct and you still have excess leakage around the axle seals they will have to be replaced. Worn/leaky axle tube seals can be due to old age and/or worn axle tube bearings/bushings. A site search for axle seals should turn up some posts on how to replace them.

Chris every geardrive tractor leaks around the shift rod.I thinks thats pretty normal for our old rigs. As Roy mentioned though,if your axle seals are showing serious leaks you might want to replace them or at least keep a watch on the fluid level. Larry

Just picked up a Simplicity Landlord 101 and the previous owner filled the transmission up to the top filler plug which created quite a mess.This is the second one I ran across like this.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
