just like any hydraulic system there is A (IN) and a (OUT) on every cylinder and motor on tractor (even steering) loosten (NOT remove) the hose fitting thats on (A or In) to motor and attempt to move joint/device with controls if a steady drip of fluid is present then your problem is device (cylinder,motor) if no drip then follow hose up to power divider or solinoid or hand valve and attempt same procedure , keep moving up the line till you get a steady drip of fluid and last device in liine is the problem device , repair or replace it
ALLWAYS turn off motor and release pressure from hyd system before you attempt to completly remove any device from system for replacement , and note that booms and arms and heavy stuff will relax(fall) with no pressure in system , prepare for this to happen (blocking,chaining)
Look for a water leak, it may be to the base of the machine and will release out the vent UNDER the drip tray if you tilt the machine forwards. There are many places for it to leak, not easy to find, I have an outer housing with cutouts to allow me to see inside while it's running. Hydraulic ram and the distributor are the most common places to cause error 6 but there is also a tricky one where the valve on the pump releases to the drip tray. A leak is the problem, finding where/which is the hard part.
the oil coming from the muffler smell the oil on the dip stick to see if it smells like gas if so the needle valve in the carb is leaking the blades not turning on has oil dripped onto the clutch and burned it out?is there a bad safety switch not allowing the clutch to turn on ?
If you only tilted it 1/4" to 1/2", shouldn't have affected it's operation. Check the air intake filer to make sure it's clean. And while the front is removed to check the filter, look to see if any significant water remains in the drip pan. If there is, the drain hole of the drip pan may be clogged and needs to be cleared.
Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
Hi, the best way us to raise the front of the mower and use a rattle gun to undo them. If you do not have one you can place a block of wood between a blade and the deck. The blades will be tight and are a normal right hand thread. Hope this helps, regards Phil.
If it is leaking as steady as you say when the engine is running, it could be coming from several places you can check. Raise and block the vehicle good and steady enough to where you can slide under it with a good strong light. Check the oil drain plug, pan gasket, oil filter may have a hole in it from a rock flying up, the sending unit should be on the side of the block. It could be the rear main seal, but Its doubtful as you say its a steady stream when its running. You shouldn't have a problem finding it if its a steady leak, you will just have to look where its running down with the engine on. Keep me posted, and good luck. Shastalaker7
