I purchased my '87 Ingersoll 226 a few months ago and have been going through the whole machine doing the maintenance seeing I don't truly know how long it has been since it was done. The hydraulic 3/4'' diameter hoses that run out of the cooler were all nasty with dirt and gunk. I wiped them down and cleaned them up and noticed some small drips on my garage floor. I replace the short run of hose (about 10'' long) with no problem at all. However, this didn't solve the problem as there is still a small leak. The longer run of hose seems to be much more of a challenge to replace. It comes out of the cooler runs along the left side of the tractor past the engine and then turns up inside the tractor near the steering column. I cant tell exactly where it goes because it is in a very tight space and there is a bunch of other components in that same area. Any suggestions/recommendations when changing this line? I don't want to remove components if there is an easier way to do it. Thanks for any info!
