I changed the hydro oil & filter.  Fluid level is right on the full mark.  As soon as the tractor warms up I have oil leaking out around the oil fill plug.  The plug is new and screws in finger tight before snugging it down.  The seal is good and in place.  Is that a built in vent that is leaking or is there another vent some place that may be plugged?  Can not find anything in either manual about a vent for the hydro.  An ideas out there?

Is the full mark meant for cold or hot? I know automatic trans fluid will rise 1/2-1 inch on the stick from cold to operating temp. It may be overfull.

It don't say.  Only to stop the engine before checking.  I would think it should be checked at operating temperature.

Talked to a Kubota service guy today.  He said to check it cold along with the engine oil.  For the hydro, if it shows  on the bottom of the stick it is good as it will come up to the full mark when it reaches operating temp.  Manuals don't always tell a person everything or reasonably correct.  Get lost in the translation some place.

Lowered the fluid level to just touching the bottom of the oil check stick.  Checks full when hot but no overflow.  Thanks for the advise.
