I just got this tractor back running (new starter) and fired it up to mow. It needed some exercise. Got a bad hydraulic leak down by the lift cylinder. Have to pull the deck to see in there and find it. Hope it's a hose!

Hope your luck is better than mine Kenny as I have to rebuild the power steering unit.  I did have a pressure relief valve spitting oil out the top

Hopefully its just a loose fitting, or another easy fix.

I'm hoping a hose! But then I have to find somewhere close by to make one up. May have to take it to Tulsa!

It never leaked before, so my money is on a hose!

Nope, it's not fixable. I'll come down and buy it for scrap value :D

Good Luck Kenny

Good Luck Kenny

Scrap value for this tractor is set at $750! Come on!

 

Found the leak! Oil cooler line. Looks to be at least a 3/8" line. Just has hose clamps on it.

It was a 1/2" line and no body has that unless I use steel reinforced 4000 PSI line. Throwed some fuel line at it and it holds for now. Ignition switch key decided to turn 360° and do nothing. Put another switch in and now it will not charge! Nothing from the stator! This thing is trying my patience badly! That means pulling the engine again!

It's Fixed! :dancingbanana: Found out the switch R pole was not making contact to the B. Found a switch that did make contact and it charges again! I was thinking stator because I got nothing from it, but forgot to put the meter to AC for those. DUH! I'm happy and Alan doesn't get it now! I think Uncle Willie has dibs anyway!

Great news Kenny!  It's sure a pain pulling the engine when required.

I was sweating that Daniel! I can pick it up but not to high and for a long time! Used it to haul the burn barrel down and dump ashes. Also moved the FF mower down out of the way. Seems to be doing great! Turns over about a quarter turn and fires off.
