Curtis B. :

I see nothing that seems to fit what you are referring to. You do mean on the axle housing? Not drive shaft? Axle has breather and oil gage, but neither should be going to rear of tractor.??

Customer:

sorry for the delay. I finally found the part. It is the drive shaft cover (part number 6C040-5755-0). If you have a picture, you will see the bulb like section of the cover. There is a hole in the bottom of this bulb. The picture does not show this hole. It doesn't appear to be a crack, but more like a bored hole about 1/16". Should it be there or is it a puncture? Could there have been a plug that has come out? I assume that it is axle oil that is leaking.

Curtis B. :

The hole is a drain hole. It is drilled there. What is happening , is you have a leak at the transmission yoke or the front yoke to the front wheel drive. To repair you will have to remove the cover and the drive shaft.
