Tom / Bob,

Here's a picture of the hydraulic control cover removed. I believe I see the roller you are telling me to tie up. Also, the spool valve is right there to the right..... right????.

Still not seeing anything odd although I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for.

I pushed the plunger down and it slid right back up nice and smooth.

I am going to follow up with a post of a few more pictures of the tear down to this point in case it may help others.

Your oil doesn"t look right to me. What color is it? Your photos make it look like a golden yellow/egg yolk color. It should be more of a green-amber color fresh out of the container.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Hummmm??? Not sure what to say. I don't have a whole lot of experience. I guess it looks a bit "milkier" than whats left in the jug.

I've done some research although I don't have all the history. I bought the tractor with my property and started using it about a year ago to mow and blow snow. I haven't done any major maintenance yet. I check the fluids, grease ect. but I haven't changed transmission oil or anything like that. I was planning the 100hr maintenance this spring after maple sugaring is done.

I haven't bought hydraulic oil. What I found in the garage (and I assume is in the hydraulics of my tractor) is Multi G134 from New Holland. From a bit of looking, it seems it's compatable with M1129 or M1129A which is called for in my Owner's manual.


Another picture.
