Finally got a bigger machine ..bigger than my Ford 8N and 861 Diesel put together...got a new (for me)84 580 Super E 4x4..EROPS..
Think I got a good deal..3393 hours 1 owner..has all records books manuals etc...machine has mechanical "HoeClamp"..not beat up at all ..60% rubber..starts and runs fine...$14200
Only found 1 leak ..both inside front rims show leakage from hub..
Several questions:
1) Any opinions what the leak may be and if it would be something I could tackle (have rebuilt both my tractors)
2)The machine has had only 1000 hours on it over the last 8 years..beyond changing all fluids / filters is there anything else that I should look at before I put her to work ..I would rather invest now then break something right off the bat
Thanks..all opinions welcome...
Alan

There are three places inside the hub from where oil can leak,there are two in the hub and one in the axle housing,it is not an easy job as the swivel pegs (king pins) have to be remove,look in the book, before attacking make sure that the hub reductions are not over filled and that it is gear oil thats in them,if the hubs have too much oil they will leak as inside with all the gears it's like a pump,the level is quarter to or past on the clock face, some people fill them right up and that will cause them to leak,if you do have to tear down pull the drive shafts and replace the seal on either side,hoping you won't have to go that far and good luck with your investment.
