Oil everywhere

Postby k9sicem » Mon Jan 14, 2013 2:39 pm

My son was plowing snow. He siad the tractor was leaking some oil in the rear. He backed it in the shop and let it set until I got home. Here was what I found.

I wanted to see if the Cub would move so I statred it up drove four foot and then there was nothing. Not sure what the issue is but it will be spring before I can fix it.

over full transmission?? that will cause the oil to leak out the differential seal. If oil is correct level then I would assume the diff seal is shot.

My guess also. Suggest draining the trans/differential. Putting tractor in a warm area or heat lamp on differential for several hours to see if any water/melted ice drains out.

If your tractor has been exposed to the outdoor elements, water could be the culprit raising the trans fluid level.

The Cub is stored in a heated building. It will not go into any gear.

suggest taking the shifter top off to see what is the problem. sometimes if a worn shifter can cause that problem. there is alot of other things that could have happened but arent common. was there any sudden jerk or loud noise before it started to leak?

Go ahead and drain the transmission. Since storage area is heated, wait 24 hours.

In the mean time while you are waiting for the transmission to drain, remove the transmission cover and check for problems.

With that much oil leaking out, about the only thing it could be is water, ice, or way over filled.

Do you mean the gear selector will not move into any of the 4 spots or it will shift but won't move?

I wouldn't think that plowing snow would put much strain on the final castings, Unless he hit something with one of the rear wheels. Where is it actually leaking from?

I doubt anything has broke in the way of a casting Unless a bearing roller or someting got into the gears. I have seen differential carrier caps bust out tearing up the rest of the trans but it takes a heck of a lot to do that

This may require a trip out to the shop. Will the PTO lever engage and if so, does it spin the pulley with the clutch engaged with the engine running?
