 L4200DT Steering Cylinder

I think I have a problem with the steering cylinder on my L4200DT (4wd). I have a significant amount of play in the front wheels and there seems to be a lot of oil spray around the area. When I jack the front wheels off the ground and manually work them back and forth, I can hear and see the "squish-squish" of the cylinder. Before I replace the cylinder, I have a few questions....1). Is this really the cause of the problem, 2). how hard is the cylinder to replace, 3). can I rebuild the cylinder or do I need to buy a whole new cylinder?

Thanks in advance for any advice. I just found this board today and after reviewing the history, it looks like I will be back frequently.

Regards

Tom

To here the squish you talk of is normal in cylinders when working back and forth. Do have some help and locate the leak. I wouldn't want to rebuild a cylinder for the price of a hose line. Yes they are rebuildable, I haven't known our shop to have to yet, so do look at all lines going in and out first.

Thanks... I'll spend a little more time to track down a leak. That would be much easier to deal with.

Tom

If you haven't run across related safety stuff, the general rule is that hydraulic leaks are found with paper or cardboard rather then fingers. You can't see the stream from pinhole leaks, and they can penetrate the skin. The remedy is surgical removal of the affected flesh within hours or gangrene may result and require more extensive treatment including amputation. PS system pressures are usually less than system pressures and they high mostly when the steering is active. Caution still is a good idea. Testing by working around steering parts with the tractor running and somebody else turning the steering wheel has its own set of hazards.
