I noticed yesterday when plowing I have a good leak coming from under the power steering under the tractor. This is a 1963 D-17 Series III, 226 Gas.

I would think it is a leaking seal? Any help on this subject is appreciated.

0 degrees is hard on man, and hard on machines!

All the best

Plowing ?? snowplowing ?? Out in the severe cold, I might expect it to be vomiting up out of the breather/fill tube. Not really a problem. It may be sucking air because of the wintertime cold. Keep it full enough of oil the power steering works and the problem may go away when it warms up. You should be able to see this if you look behind the grille screen after the tractor has been running a while in the cold. If by chance it was overfilled with power steering oil, it may have just corrected itself.

If you have an O'Reilly's part store go there and buy some Dye-Lite part number TP3090 and put some in the power steering fluid. That stuff is a leak detector so it will show you right where the leak really is

She has the belt driven pump , and from what I could inspect hoses appear to be good.

That has the belt driven pump, correct? Could be that, or hoses. Best rule them out first, before getting into the unit.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
