My son and I were out with my 446 and we were pushing some heavy snow and really work'n the Case hard when I went to back up after pushing some snow forward and it stayed in one spot, hmm try forward, hmmm noth'n. Look under tractor, Holy JUNK! Oil everywhere! I lost about a gallon of oil in about 5 seconds. :lolno:
Went up and got my Dad, the Case DC and a chain, towed it back to the shop and located the problem. Drained the rest of the oil.
On the pressure side of the pump I removed the hose that goes down to the control valve and found a small hole in the hose that looked like a thin cut about 1/16" long.
Taking it apart was tough but I got it off without to much problem. Just took off the access panel on the dash and somehow got it loose and off. I bought a new hose for $50.00! ouch! I should have used one of my old spares, but as hard as it was to take off and replace I did'nt want to do it again. :lol:
Installing the new hose was a job, WOW! I don't know the proper way to replace this hose, but I managed to do it through the access panel alone. I think I stretched my fingers about an inch and got carpal tunnel trying to start the threaded end into the pump. :sidelaugh: :lol: Patience was the word of the day. :wink:
The good news? It does'nt leak and it now works! :thumbsup:

So I said all that to ask. What was the proper way to access this hose for replacement?

P.S. I'm so glad I changed the oil last fall and used the most expensive Amsoil 15/40 synthetic I could find so it could lube a 3 ft section of ground 5 months later. :cry: :thumbdown: :eek: :mad: :sidelaugh:

If you got it replaced and it doesn't leak, sounds like you did it the proper way! :thumbsup:

Myself I tend to tear down things too far only to find that there was a easier way or some cheap little tool that's widely available that would have made things easier and faster.

At least it dumped the oil in one spot, I had a 220 that my son was driving in our front yard that sprung a leak from one of the lines going to cooler and it just leaked in steady stream while he drove around. A few weeks later I notice that I had these lines of dying grass which looked like it was drawn in some wild pattern.

Haha. That would stink. At least this way you could see how straight his mowing was. :lol:
