Case 580

I am looking at buying what I believe is a case 580 580ck. The guy was telling me about a leak that effects the drive of the tractor that I am just trying to figure if it"s a deal breaker. I"ll describe it as best I can but forgive my ignorance. He said that fluid is leaking from the area where the shifter is to the chamber behind it. If working it hard it will come out the breather that"s just under the front of the seat. This tractor has a loader but no backhoe. 3pt and runs and drives well. I think it"s a good deal but am a little worried about this issue. And help on how hard this would be to fix or how much it would cost to get done would be very appreciated. Thanks.

How big of a deal is this going to be to fix it myself? Any ideas on how much itd cost to take it to the dealer to have them fix it?

depends on who you take it to and if they know what they are doing, I would est when I was running my repair shop 500-1000, depending on where it was leaking, but that just my est.

Seal is bad between two housings (very common) you can run it that way but you have to put the oil (by hand) back into the one that is low from the one that is high.

the leak sounds like is on the 3pt rockshaft, seals on the lift piston would be my first guess, it can be a shaft seal but from your description I am betting the leak is in the 3pt, not a hard fix most times, pull the rockshaft cover do the repairs replace, if seals are the problem I would guess 100.00 or so in parts, but it has been a while since I did one, great units!
