3-point lift leak

Postby mikebrinson » Tue Aug 04, 2020 7:19 pm

I have a leak in the 3-point lift assembly on my YM1610D. I need advise as to how to repair it. I obtained from Hoye the seal I believe I need (that's if I described what I thought I needed well enough to the Hoye folks when I ordered it).

In one photo, my finger is pointing to the little silver plunger which goes in and out to actuate the lift. It leaks fairly profusely when the plunger in pressed in, causing the 3-point to lift.

I included a photo of the seal in the plastic bag on top of the assembly, just to so someone can advise me if that is indeed the correct seal.

My question is what do I need to remove to install the new seal?

Should I be cautious of any pressure being released, when I do disassemble it?

I can't be sure and don't want to give bad advice but that looks like a gasket. I am thinking the seal is this but you check with Hoye.https://www.hoyetractor.com/PROD/10x20x7TC.htm

When you replace it just let the 3 point and loader (if you have one) all the way down and you won't have any pressure there.

To replace the seal, do I back that nut out or is there some other procedure?

I believe so, then the seal can be driven out of the nut.

Winston, you recommended the correct seal for the job and it is a unique little bugger that I'm sure Hoye Tractor is the only outfit in the known galaxy that has them in stock. Pretty straight forward repair. Now it doesn't leak nary a drop!

Thanks!
