Have a JD59 snowblower on a JD3720 tractor. A leak has developed and gotten steadily worse only when the cylinder is lifting the blower.
If you look on the JDparts diagram, the leak is between parts 16 (elbow fitting) and 15 (union fitting) and appears to be weeping up the threads. I have attempted to tighten the connection - it was already very tight. Anyone know what type of connection this is? The part diagram does not show it but is it possible there is a failed o-ring? If not is this the type of connection that should (or could) have sealant? I donít see any sign of sealant in it now. I also donít see any signs of a crack but Iím know sure one would be visible to the eye.
