My D17 series II has a power steering oil leak. I seems to be coming from the breather in front of the radiator. I have not had anyone turn the steering wheel to look for the leak. Its leaked down past the gear or fill point and still leaks. I have always filled it just to the top of the gear you can see in the fill hole. The cap is always wet after running. Thanks Jim

Warning this is just an educated guess so I may be off on this. Most system like that have a vent and if it gets clogged it will cause a problem like what you have. But as I said this is just a guess and I would have to go out and look at my D-17 to be 100% sure if there is in fact a vent and sorry with the weather like it is I'll not be doing that looking at this time LOL

Thanks Old. It does have a vent or at least I'm pretty sure it does. I'll check it out, but the vent is where the oil seems to be coming out. I'll check it tonight. Jim

On my Series III, the vent is part of the filler cap- inch in diameter, about 3 inches tall, located behind the grille.

What happens is the oil gets hot and expands some and that pressure building up then cause the vent when it does let something out to sort of spray the hot oil instead of just venting off the air pressure which is what should happen

Got home last night and had to go to town to pick up supplies for the bathroom remodeling (wife highly suggested I do that) so I will check the vent asap and let you guys know what I find. Thanks Jim

Today's Featured Article - It Can't Be Done! - A Tractor Story - by Neil Campbell. I'll never forget the time back when I was a boy baling hay on our Farm in Big Rapid, Michigan. The most memorable event that took place was a trip up the steepest incline on the farm pulling an old New-Idea baler with a pony-motor for power and a haywagon. I had just talked my Dad into buying an old John Deere B with 6-speeds ahead and I was real proud of it, except it was a little smaller than the Case tractor that we normally ... [Read Article]
