I have a rather old tractor, but it is very helpful.

Today I was driving it and fluid started pouring out of the centre of the steering wheel.

It appears to be somewhat aerated hydraulic fluid.

Any suggestions on how this could happen?

Correction: While looking for possible source of the problem, I found the manufacturers plate saying SD4643T.

Note: Oil level for gearbox appears to have dropped - now just above minimum level. ....

So I started trying to remove the steering column, but didn't make a lot of progress.
I'm guessing there is a blown seal in here somewhere for fluid to run up the column and out under the steering wheel, but I haven't found a helpful diagram yet.

Removed the 3 bolts that appear to hold the column and the power steering control together, but something else is keeping the whole lot in place... ....

It sounds like it has lost a seal in the power steering box. It's a pretty common problem.


Best of luck. ....

Nice to know I'm not too weird :-)

Anyone able to explain how I can remove the steering column?
I got as far as removing 3 bolts at the base, but something else is holding it in place.

Just had my arm operated on, so unable to do anything right now, but will be back in action soon. ....

There is a bracket pointing towards the front of the tractor that needs to be unbolted. ....
