350c hydraulic oil leak

Post by Whauser » Sat Sep 07, 2019 8:14 am

I have a 1985 350c with 4000 hours , I have a hydraulic oil leak coming from lower portion , about 1/3 to 1/2 way back from front of machine, has been slowly getting worse. Can’t really see where it’s coming from because of skid pan. I know it’s not from the transmission. Any body have any possible idea?, Bill

Hello,

It could be from any of several places. I would recommend dropping the belly pan if you can't identify the source from the sides, looking under the seat, or by pulling the floor boards. Bet that is not what you hoped to hear, but getting the right diagnosis is more effective, and often less costly, in the end than the shotgun approach.

I am going to mark this post to be moved to the Late model JD crawler technical support Board. That is the right forum for questions like this one about your crawler. More of the folks will see it there.
