 Ford 1215 leaking hydraulic fluid

First off, I'm asking because the owner doesn't have Internet access so please excuse me if I don't know or supply all the necessary information.

He has a Ford 1215 (1998 model, I think) with a backhoe attached to the rear. It's leaking hydraulic fluid from the valve body (?) underneath the driver's seat on the right side. He wants to tear it apart and rebuild the valve body but would prefer either instructions, guidance, or pictures before he starts (to avoid surprises).

Does anyone have suggestions, pictures, or access to a service manual? He has the owner's manual but that doesn't cover repairs. He showed me the section that discussed attaching the hydraulic lines to the valve block but that's about it.

Thanks.

Mike

 Ford 1215 leaking hydraulic fluid

Having been a writer of service and owner manuals, not desribing things happens for two reasons: laziness on the part of the writers OR it's assumed the technician knows what he's doing so it goes without saying.

It's likely just an O-ring which is simple to fix. Don't just use any O-ring--it has to be rated for hydraulic fluid---I think it's called "Buna-N" or "L". He may be able to R&R the O-ring without even taking it all a[part since it goes around the spool where the control handle attaches--if I understand your post.
