I have been chasing a hydraulic leak in my fairly new (25 hours) tractor and I think I have it localized to the steering cylinder fitting area. As far as I can tell it is coming from where the fitting meets the cylinder.

When I first noticed it, the fitting felt slightly loose so I tightened it a bit (I didn’t want to over-tighten it), but I am still seeing a drip here. I tried to tighten it a little more, but I don’t think it made any difference. Is there anything else I should look at before calling the dealer? Thanks in advance!

If you are lucky it just needs a new o-ring in the fitting but it may require a new hose or possibly if it has a brazed on fitting on the cylinder that may be a problem.
I would squawk at the dealer and see if a tech can come to your house.

If you tightened the fitting and its still leaking, it's dealer warranty service time. 10 and 11 shown in the screen shot are both Orings and they are differnent from one another. Chances are this is the cause of the leak, either the ring is missing or damaged and my first suspect would be number 10.......but check 11 as well..........

Just to close the loop on this, I called the dealer (United Ag & Turf in Chatham, NY) last Monday and they had a tech out the next day to look at it. He ended up replacing the whole elbow fitting as he could not get the original one to seal correctly. UAT was very responsive and I wish I could get service like that from the Audi dealer for my car that cost 3x as much :p
