Have 1963 D17 series III with after market 3 pt. hitch. Have been using it lately with a hydraulic post driver while building fence around the farm. Everything has been working great until the other day. The 3pt. will no longer lift. The post driver is run off a seperate front pump. I checked the hydraulic oil and added some. When I try to raise the lift arms, the hydraulic oil is running into the transmission and now overflowing. Is there a seal between causing the leak or do I have a leaking lift cylinder or hose? How do I get to this to repair and where would be the best place to get the parts. This is my first tractor and I pick the D series because my grandfather has a D14 and swore by it. Any help would be appreciated.

had that happen to our series III several years ago. hose blown on the lift cylinder in the pto housing. start disassembly from teh back end till you get to upper lift arms and the cylinder. look at the hose, and cylinder seal.
