Trans leak and removing hydro control lever

Recommended Posts

Hi my newly-rebuilt trans (716h) is dripping fluid (very little but a few drops a day) from the trans... I put a new gasket in, could it just be that I don't have the bolts holding the two trans halves together tight enough? I don't want to overcompress the gasket, thinking that could be worse. Also, for the life of me I cannot figure out how to remove the hydro control lever from the side of the tractor. I take the nut and washers off, but the threaded stud appears to be part of the actuating arm (up inside the frame). Gently tapping on a sacrificial nut (to avoid thread damage) would not budge it. Any ideas?
