It took me a long time to get back. Old The leak from my power steering is not because the fill plug braether was clogged. I put parts cleaner in it and it ran right through the breather hole. Could it be the type of fluid. Rhe book says to use a 20 wt oil in prior to 42000 serial #. This one is 40xxx. Maybe its coming from under the radiater from a line ??? Thanks, Still looking when I get a chance (need the wife to get home long enough when I am home to turn it while I watch.) Jim

Any motor oil will foam in a PS system if it is not non detergant. Use the non detergant oil.

Hi, Jim. Old is correct about the fluid. If there is water or any standard motor oil in the system, the fluid will boil (foam) out of the vent/filler plug in front of the radiator. Sorry, I missed your earlier post.

I've been using 30W non detergent in my D-17 with good success. I have to add oil once or twice a year depending on use.

Thanks Old. The book calls for 20 wt so I can change oil. Also if a valve is stuck will it affect steering. It seems to be fine as long as the oil is at a good level.I fill it as specked in the book. I"ll keep looking. Jim

Ya if a valve was sticking it would make the steering sort of funny so its most likely you have a mix of oils and or water

Yes it could be a line and or the wrong fluid and the fluid is foaming on you. Could also be something stuck in the system like one of the valves.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
