this can't be good

Recommended Posts

Spray the oily areas down with Brake-Kleen or an equivalent so all gets dry. Drain down your existing fluid and then refill to the recommended amount, Start the tractor and look for leaks. The spray cleaner is a $1.75 per can and it makes a good cleaner. You will need more cardboard to catch the drips and probably a ventilated area.

I just drained the system and installed 3 qts of fluid, it leaked a bunch, I plowed and it worked fine and then leaked this amount. It always had a drip seems to have really started leaking more after I tightened the drain plug. I did spray it down with brake clean, seems like it's leaking most at the axle tubes. Why did I sell that spare rear end? I really hate to break out the 99 sovereign with 7 hrs and a triad for plowing.

I think Daves on it: you said it leaked more after you tightened the plug...isn't that when pressure may start to build in the case causing it to seep from path of least resistance (lower seals) verify if it does leak less with the vent plug off, or blow out the vent to be sure its breathing... Good Luck ?

Is the vent in place or stopped up? This will build pressure in the case and puke oil out in all kinds of spots if it's missing or plugged.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
