I just acquired this tractor and got it running, very exciting. However, after an hour of running it, it started spewing fluid through the steering column. Any ideas out there?

fkmore,

The steering on your 3000 must be hydraulic power steering....I'm guessing.

If so, you have what's called a steering valve located somewhere just below the steering wheel.

Your steering valve has hydraulic hoses attached to it.

It's likely that your steering valve has blown a seal. There could be a problem with your system that create the pressure necessary to blow the seal.......or it may have just failed due to age.

See the link below.......
