/ What have you done to your Branson today? #1,451
Everything else is dry as a bone, when i opened the weep plate, it was wet inside with oil. Where it came otherwise? I looked around, no other signs of leaking oil.Doesn't look that it's coming from the weep hole in the plate, other wise we would see the drop coming from the cotter pin in there.
Got a call from the dealer and they suspect a leak on the front drive line seal. They are going to fix it under warranty so that is great. But I asked them to pull the bell housing cover and look at the top of it because I am almost certain that is motor oil. It is too black to be gear oil to me. They said they would look. So I may have more than one leak which is disappointing to say the least.
The tractor just has not been worked very hard at all. Mostly mowing in 2WD. Pulling the land plane to help my brother is the hardest it has ever worked and that was just a long day and should not have been an issue. But I was pulling in 4WD on that job.
I will say I feel very blessed to have a great dealer that is willing to help! So many times we hear of dealers failing their customers but mine is doing things the right way. More to come!
