Thanks a bunch. I need to lighten up my tractor a bit for the local antique pulls. I thought about just pulling the powertrol off but getting rid of all the hydraulic system will really help. The nice thing is that I can leave everything intact for later if I ever want to put it back on. I've been putting it off and waiting for a real good reason to pull the rear cover and a couple weeks ago I had an axle seal go out so looks like I got my reason to do it now. I sure wish the seals were out on the end of the housings instead of behind the bull gears. :lol:
My JD 1250 has oil leaking out of a small hole on the back of the base collar of the shift lever. The other lever has the same hole built in. Attached is a photo of it, and a short video of the oil sort of spewing out.
