But first want to say looking forward to being here. Name is Heidi-Ann and live in Eastern Oklahoma.

Now to my problem.

This is the bottom of a Ford 601
Something got blown out of the center and is leaking / pouring fluid. . . thinking hydraulic fluid.

Any idea of the part that blew out.

This is a link to the part image on OneDrive:

Heidi-Ann Kennedy-Fourkiller

Well I didn't have to shoot it. Still leaks slightly through the inspection plate. . . yet very little. Another project for another day I suppose.

When I'm ready for the tear down to fix that I'm sure I'll annoy you some more. ~smiles~

Again thanks everyone for the quick response and getting me in the right direction.

Heidi-Ann

[quote="Sean
If you think that it only leaked because of it being tilted, you can remove that inspection plate and use a spray brake cleaner to get the majority of the fluid out from inside the bell housing and then just top the hydraulic sump off and see if it leaks any more before tearing things apart.[/quote]

Good morning all and thanks Sean for the response.

Time to feed the chickens and turn some wrenches I guess.

I'll start by cleaning as suggested. I also see a leak started in the bottom of the manifold from the hydraulic pump. Assuming one the O rings blew out too.
So I'll check that and replace. Top off all fluids and check what happens from there and get back and let you all know.

Or carry the shotgun and have a quite ceremony with my little Ford.

Hydraulic sump is behind the transmission so it would have had to have leaked from the hydraulic sump into the transmission and then from the transmission into the bell housing, but if you have the same type fluid in both sumps then tilting the tractor could have done just that without you being able to tell the difference. A certain amount of fluid could have leaked from the transmission into the bell housing and just about the same amount of fluid could have leaked from the hydraulic sump into the transmission so the trans doesn't appear low.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

It's hydraulic fluid for sure: though transmission full and hydraulic / PTO emptied. So you know, some one hooked a chain to a box blade that was raised and stood the tractor up in trying to pull the tree. . . I know should have never been chained there. That is when it drained. . . is there no way it could have leaked into that area?

If the transmission is over filled, and the rear end is empty, that usually points to a hole in the hydraulic line running through the transmission. That's a repair I've never done, but others here can walk you through it.

That is an inspection plate on the bottom of the transmission bell housing where the clutch is located. The area inside there is normally dry. The hole in the center of the plate is supposed to be open to allow any fluid that does get into the bell housing to drip out so as to not get oil on the clutch. The hole is supposed have a cotter pin in it that rattles around with the vibrations of the tractor to keep dirt from clogging the hole. If there is fluid coming out of that hole, then either the rear of the engine or the front of the transmission, or both, are leaking into the bell housing. If it looks and smells like hydraulic fluid rather than motor oil then it is most likely the front of the transmission that is leaking, as most folks use UTF in the transmission, hydraulics and rear end these days.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
