I picked up a 1512 diesel from a jd collector in indiana last week. I got it shipped to me and took delivery yesterday.
I will post up some pics as i go but overall it is in decent shape. The dash has some issues and it was leaking hyd fluid on the trip up.
I did get it started after sitting inside for a while and warming up. The fluid is coming out of the tiny weep hole on one of the check valves on the trans. The fluid looks like oil so im gonna take the valves out and send them out to get rebuilt and change the fluid and filter when i put it all back together.
I have a gear reduction starter that will be going on and plan on just cleaning it all up this winter.

If any of you guys can help me out with a part of my project.

The dash plastic where the hood sits is pretty much gone. I have repaired one on another tractor but it was only cracked not missing all together. Where can I get another one that  is in better shape? I have been looking around and haven't found any that are for a diesel like mine. It has the remote hyd on the front so there is extra labeling and such that are on my dash that arent on any of the available 782 like dashes.

Pulled the rear cover tonight to let it drain while i go get a filter for it and the oil in it is brown to start out with then turns a little more red once it gets flowing. The po must have had problems with the bolts loostening up or the cover leaking because all the bolts had red locktite on them and the gasket was siliconed on both sides. Took a hammer and a chisel to get it off. And there is about a 1/4-1/2" of a wax like buildup on the top half of the cover above where the fluid level would be. Whats up with that? Ive never seen that on the other ones i have been into before even though they were mostly manuals.

Came out red, soapy build up....

 

This is way off guess and before you discredit it.  I could be way wrong, but its an idea.  When I worked at a strip mine we would take and pack a leaky rear end with grease.  Not perfect, but it lubes stuff.  Grease is made up of oil and a binder.  A soap, wax, or something along the lines to bind it to make it 'thick and sticky'

 

After the grease is flung around for a long time, it will separate the oil/binder and oil like substance, a waxy substance, and some thats still grease like will be in there.

 

Sounds to me like it had a mix of grease and oil in the rear end.

 

Now I haven't read much about your tractor than other than I got a really cool Diesel Cub(that I would love to have) and what you found in the rear end. 

 

Not sure if you are talking hydrostatic drive and the rear end circulate the fluid from the pumps.  I could be way wrong.  But its something to consider.  My Ariens uses the 30 weight oil in the rear end as a way to circulate oil from the pump.  Not sure if thats how the cubs work, I never dug too deep into them.  Never had a reason on a cub.

Thanks. Yes it is a hydro and the fluid from the diff is used in the hydro so it wouldnt move at all with grease in it only. But maybe the po did something strange like that.

Found a way to flush out the rear end tonight.

Put my small benchtop parts washer under the rear end and put the brush on top of the carrier and just let the solvant do the work and it drains right back into the parts washer so im not wasting a bunch of brake clean or something.

And from the looks of the valves i will be just swapping them with another set i have on a parts tractor. Someone rebuilt one themselves at one point and it doesnt look good. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1384990619.934589.jpg

Be sure to put hytrans or equivalent back in that rear. I use this stuff from TSC.

I have an official case/ih hytrans in the garage for these projects.
I picked up a 5 gal pail a few years ago for my big tractor and never used any.

Would there be a downside to using a set of manual relief valves? Because i dont want to take them out of the 2 i have inside and making them leakers.
