Good Morning.....I traced a hydraulic leak to the
785733
rubber manifold that connects the oil line with the steering pump I think- see attached photo. Question- do I have to drain all the hydraulic fluid from the tractor to replace the part? Just completed my 400hr service and really want to avoid this if possible-
Thanks for any advice or help.

I'm no expert but I believe that is the low pressure return line. Given the height of that pipe I doubt you'll loose much fluid. To be safe you could always put a CLEAN drain pain under it when you loosen the fitting.
