 Agracat 254 drips Hydraulic oil

Agracat 254. This may seem a remedial question but I didn't see it asked already (or may have missed it).

How do I add hydrolic oil? I have developed a small leak around one of the seals on the steering unit and I have a bit of a shudder when lifting the bucket or turning left (Im guessing because of low Hyd oil/pressure). I noticed oil dripping from the steering hydrolics when I turn right.

Where do I add it and what kind of oil should I add. How do I relieve pressure on the system?

Will adding the oil and building the pressure cause the seals to close and the dripping to stop or do I need to expect a overhaul on the seals?

Thanks

Uh-oh! Shuddering is sign of cavitation or lack of oil. Lack of oil means that soon-- if not already-- the pump will be toast. Been there done that.
The filler cap for the oil will be likely be under the seat or high up on the transmission. It may have its own dip stick on it.
Seals: Yep. You're probably going to need to replace them.

EW

Would shuddering also just mean low oil pressure (I wish). My oil was very low due to that leak in the steering hydrolic and I will add more to see what happens.

What weight/type oil do you recommend. I have a local NAPA so if you have a type specific to them that would help.

What was it I read about foaming/non foaming.

Thanks
Jim

Shuddering will equal low pressure--which could be, or is, permanent. If let go for long, if not already, the pump will not make pressure. The shuddering is air or lack of oil and pressure going to the cylinders. As far as what to use---I stay away from making recommendations on that---the wrong stuff could destroy seals in some cases.

I added the Hyd oil (NAPA Premium AW standard) and the shuddering was gone. Everything worked smoothly. Maybe I caught the problem soon enough for salvage. We'll see.

Thanks again friends!

Yofrient,

You might want to check the bolts that secure your steering valve to the tractor. If they work loose, you will begin to develop a leak in the supply and return lines connected to your hydraulic power steering valve.

You may not need any seals. You may have a loose hydraulic line, instead. Replacing a broken or cracked line may not be the solution, as there is likely something loose that caused the power steering line to crack, or work loose, in the first place.

Grab hold of your steering wheel and see if it has any forward-to-back or side-to-side play in the steering column. If so, you will need to tighten the bolts that secure your steering valve to the tractor. This will likely involve removing the engine side panels and the dash, along with the dress cover that fits below the dash, between your feet.

My Kubota B2100 has four bolts that secure the steering valve to the tractor. They work loose from time to time. I recently replaced a broken hyd. line, and in the process of replacing it I discovered the reason why it cracked.

The bolts weren't very loose, but it doesn't take much for there to be a considerable amount of movement in the power steering lines.

Joel
