Water drip from clutch area

Report to Moderator

I have a 4500 backhoe(I think). It has the hydraulic motor swing on back. I think it may have been shipped over from England. Everything works fine. But I have a small drip of coolant coming from area between engine and transmission. Am I right in assuming that there is a freeze plug on back of engine inside bell housing area, and will have to split tractor to access. Also, the hydraulic swing motor leaks some fluid while using.Is there a seal or something that needs to be replaced. I ordered a service manual from Ford-New Holland(about 11lbs and several books)but it doesn't cover the hydraulic swing. It covers a wide range of tractors and hoes instead of a particular one. Thanks in advance for any HELP. Nathan

Justice Brothers makes a Radiator Stop-Leak that is excellent. It won't rebuild your freeze plugs or head gaskets, but it will stop a leak.

Yes, there are 4 expansion plugs; 3 into the water jacket, one of these is in the back of the head with 2 in the rear of the block. The fourth is a large plug covering the rear of the camshaft. Yes, you will have to split your tractor & remove the flywheel & spacer plate to access the plugs. You will need a new cork seal around the crankshaft rear main seal (which you may as well replace, too). Sorry, can't help with your swing motor.

The swing motor is probably the same as the Massey Ferguson. Might check with a MF dealer and see if they can help you. Yours is the first I have heard of a Ford having a swing motor.

Thanks for the response fellows. It's what I thought but didn't want to accept. The hoe is not used very often. I might try some stop leak. The Ford dealer didn't know about swing motor either. He said if I would bring hoe model #, he might be able to help. I found that and will check it out. The hydraulic swing motor works real smooth because there is no slack like with chains or bushings and pins. Nathan

Today's Featured Article - Talk of the Town: Diesel Vs. Gasoline - by Staff. Another neat discussion from the Tractor Talk Discussion Forum. The discussion started out with the following post: " I am in the market for an older tractor (to be read... cheap). I have been told a diesel holds up better than a gasoline engine as far a wear, tear, neglect and abuse. Since I am looking at older tractors that have probably been through it all, is it better to buy diesel? I do expect to have to do a good bit of work on ... [Read Article]
