I'm not familiar with those tractors but I know a blocked vent will result in oil being forced out through the weakest point. In general terms the vent is normally going to be near the top of the hydro unit reservoir. I bought a JD314 and oil was leaking from the axle seals. I found that the vent filter was replaced with an unvented fuel filter allowing pressure to build up. An easy fix in that case.
