I retrofitted 01 series powersteering onto my 860 in the string, its all genuine for stuff no aftermarket.
Now I ran it for a few months, not much use and only leak was the cylinders, threw new seals in and all was well.
other day I backed it in the garage and noticed a very dark oil stain under the tractor. it appears the oil is coming out of the gearbox around the shaft for the steering arm on the left side of the tractor.
I painted everything before installing it, so its nice clean red, I see zero oil anywhere, but after poking around it seems to be coming out the shaft, running down the back of the arm, and then dripping on the exhaust.
So, is there a seal in there, and anyone got a part number ?

You need a new sector shaft seal.
You can get them from CNH or match them up at your local bearing house.
They are a bit tricky to install as they are small/thin things and damage easily.
I made a driver from a piece of pipe for those on my friend's lathe which facilitates the install.
Yes, it is 90W in the bottom of the box.

other odd thing I forgot to mention, it actually doesn't look like P/S fluid, its much thicker and darker. almost looks like thinned out grease that I'm finding

Today's Featured Article - The Ferguson System Principal An implement cutting through the soil at a certain depth say eight inches requires a certain force or draft to pull it. Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
