So you're saying that the loader is run off of the same pump that drives the 3 point lift, and the loader works good but the 3 point doesn't lift? If so, then there might be a diverter valve that's diverting the power to the loader and bypassing the 3 point lift altogether, but we would need to see pictures of the setup to be sure.

The reason I seem skeptical on this is that most loaders of that era were powered by a separate pump on the front of the tractor that was driven by a shaft off of the crankshaft pulley.

Is the loader run off of a hydraulic pump that's mounted to the front of the tractor? If so, then that's totally separate from the pump that drives the 3 point lift, which is mounted on the right side of the engine back near the flywheel.

That cotter pin goes into the bell housing. It's to keep the drain hole open so it doesn't get plugged with dirt and grease.
A drip there is fairly normal but the leakage is from either a rear engine seal or a front transmission seal. Oft times both.
You can usually look, feel, smell if it's engine oil or transmission oil.
Only by splitting the tractor and installing new seals can you correct the leak.

Isn't that the weep hole for the bellhousing and if so, perhaps its a rear main seal on the motor that is leaking and draining to the weep.

Cotter pin is there to vibrate and keep the hole clear so fluids can drain out. The short answer is "yes", you have to split it to get at just about anything in there. Not sure about rear main seal though.

Today's Featured Article - Antique Tractor Wiring Basics - by Curtis von Fange. One of the most neglected parts of old tractors is the wiring. After sitting in the elements for half a century or more much equipment wiring has deteriorated to sparsely covered strands of copper or other metal. Plastic insulation has cracked, mice have eaten through the older clothed style coverings and the exposed wires have reacted to winter moisture and salts by turning blue and powdery. Terminal ends have corroded, rusted or just plain evaporated away. Aged wires not only keep an engin ... [Read Article]
