    1023E steering cylinder leak?

    Just into my 50 hours of use and I have a leak. It is coming from a coupling on the left steering cylinder. Itís tight, but leaks. Doesnít seem to come off when I loosen the nut. When I loosen the nut, the coupler wiggles a bit. I will contact my dealer, but wanted to see if this is something simple first. I have not found any similar issues posted, this may be because I have no idea what Iím talking about. See pics. Thanks.

    You probably just need to replace the O-ring.

    That nut that is leaking is a jam-nut. Behind it is an o-ring, To replace that o-ring, remove the hose from the fitting by loosening the nut that is under the chaff guard, then loosen the jam-nut, then unscrew elbow from cylinder.

    Replace o-ring and reassemble.

    That is what's called an "ORB" fitting, for O-Ring Boss. This is a picture of one, but Jason gave you the correct steps to remove it.


    I would take the hose off, loosen the jam nut, then turn the fitting one full turn and then tighten the jam nut before doing anything else-that may cure your leak.

    Thanks so much everyone. Covered under warranty but I did the work myself with parts supplied by the dealer under warranty.
