    Hydraulic Oil Dumped!

    My dad has a 2001 model 4300 and the other day he lost power steering and all hydraulics. After getting off and seeing a trail of oil leading back to the tractor he found the leak. Here are some photos so you can see what happened.

    It looks like a freeze plug popped out. Seems odd to have a freeze plug on the hydraulic oil reservoir. Anyway, I can't find any reference to this plug in the service manual. Does anyone know what you call this plug and how to replace it? I'm guessing it's pressed in at the factory...

    Is this a 4300 with hydrostatic, gear or sync reverser transmission? It's really hard to tell what we're looking at from the photos as there is a lot of flair and lack of contrast. Is that plug on the front or rear of the rear housing? Unfortunately, the only photo that shows anything useful is the last one. Sorry - just trying to understand what we're looking at so we can try to help.

    A sticker on the side of the tractor says "Sync Shift". So, I assume it has a sync reverser transmission.

    Sorry for the poor quality pictures they are a poor attempt to zoom in on the location. The plug is on the front side of the housing on the right side of the tractor.

    I would also want to know why that plug would have come out in the first place. Is the tractor stored outside? Do you have freezing temperatures in the winter? I'd wonder if some water got in the fluid and froze at some point and pushed it most of the way out.

    Looking at the location and parts illustration it appears like the plug is covering an access hole for servicing the pinion shaft and bearings.
