    loose fittings

    my tractor has 20hrs and started leaking at the fittings like crazy, i found the nut on top and bottom of plate were loose and the fitting on top of nut above plate was also loose. this one seems like it might have a o-ring between it and nut below, because i can see a faint black line under it. 3 tightened really good, the other seemed like it tried to keep turning after i snugged it down. no leaks right now. Is this normal?Click image for larger version.

    No, leaks are not "normal". This is a warranty item and your dealer needs to know the tech that installed the loader did not do a good job.

    The fittings do have o-rings in them, they may have been pinched.

    Shouldn’t leak. If you fixed something yourself and it leaked you wouldn’t be satisfied until you fixed it. You paid them to have it right in the first place, sir.
