If you are not a pretty accomplished mechanic you are going to be before this is over. The rear of that machine has two (One for each side) Hydrostatic transmissions. They are driven from a splitter box on the back of the engines. Any oil leak besides a external hose will require the removal of the complete unit and rebuild. Quite expensive even if you can find someone beside mother deer to do the work. Last thing in the world most folks that know is a 20/30 year old John Deer hydrostatic. Pretty much a money pit.

Maybe he'd be lucky and it's something that is just loose or needs a seal replaced. If not, despite what Lou thinks, it would be a good idea to get an estimate first if you have to do a major repair. Lou has this bizarre idea that you shouldn't follow a budget when fixing machines because you never what you'll run into. Sounds like a good way to spend more on repairs than a machine is worth. A 655B in working condition is a very good machine but if the hydro's go bad could be real expensive, real fast.

Thing is you are right he may find an external seal that looks like it is the source of the leak but it will be a worn out hydrostatic with high case pressure causing the leak. And as you say if even ones side is out will cost more than the machine is worth to fix it. That is why the 20 yr old hydrostatics just do not sell well. Money pit one way or the other.
