HI All,

I have questions on this line.

This line is from a 123 Cub Cadet.  It has been cracked by vibrations and is leaking.

This line went from the pump to the reseivior. 

What is it used for?  Pressure or Cooling?

What is the psi?

Is this the right length.? Can the line be shorter?

Can it be placed directly from the pump to the reseivoir without going around the pump?

Thanks for any help.

DB1

I believe that's the suction line for the hydro. It should only have suction and no pressure, the line on my 129 is much shorter than that or.

It may need to be that long for a little extra cooling. The line for the power steering on my Ford truck is 3-4 feet longer than it needs to be; was told that it acts as a fluid cooler.

The parts manual shows it going around the pump, so there must be a reason.

It was the first series Cub equipped with a hydro and that is how the line was routed. I just picked up a 123 with the same issue line being cracked. The 105/125 which was the next series hydro did not have the line wrapping around the pump like that. I have one of them also and the line is much shorter and has a 90 in it. I am in the process of getting a pick-up line from another 105/125.

Partstree.com shows the 125 also has the same long bent pickup tube.But they show the 127 as having the same long tube and I know that's incorrect as I have 2 127s and a 127 parts machine.

I would put one of the shorter ones on it or cut that one down.
