    Broken Mower Deck Hydraulic

    So after having my FEL assembled for about a month I finally got to take it out for the 2nd time and do some work. When I parked it I noticed the auto connect hydraulic line got pulled off by some brush that got caught under the tractor.

    The hose was dangling / dragging and some of the rubberized protective cover was abraded. I need to look again, but is there any easy fix for this (can it be taped up for protection and zip tied to be held in place? I looked on JD parts but could not see how the hose was routed.

    Hopefully this isn't as bad as I am thinking

    I will try and post some pictures later today when I go back out to assess the damage further.

    As long as the steel wires are still intact, then the hose is still serviceable. Tape it up well and secure the hose-someone else will have to help with specific routing though.

    I have only done a few of the hydraulic lifts, but it should be routed from the lift piston on the left of the tractor, under the seat and follow the hard lines to the front ports. The kit comes with four rubber coated clamps that get attached, 2 under the seat and two attached to the hard lines. I attached the instructions for the lines, hope it helps.

    Yep.

    If you see steel braids coming apart...replace it immediately.

    The braids are all in tack, but when I plug the the line back in the mower deck attachment is not moving up or down. On JD parts right now to try to figure out how to take the side fender off to get a better look and some photos.

    I have a feeling this is not going to be good

    If you take the floor and lower panel under the seat off, it'll give you all the access you'll need. Removal is straightforward.

    Looks like everything is Still attached but there is a ton of tension in the line and the loops got pulled out. Not sure why it's not moving the deck lift
