Hello and thank you for using Just Answer. Could you be a little more descriptive as to what the symptoms are? Also, more importantly, what, if any, function began giving you problems before they both failed?

Weird hyd.noises brakes and steering intermittent when hot three point also
Expert:  JBFixxer replied 1 year ago.

Generally speaking, on these tractors, the cure on these can lead to a hit or miss/trial and error. The few I have dealt with, the problem was in the steering column. However, this was only discovered after resealing the scv valve and the rockshaft housing. One thing you can do is isolate the source of the noise and also, the warmest component(the heat would indicate where hydraulic oil is going past a seal). When the seals go in the steering, the oil dumps directly into the transmission.

Also, you will want to verify that the hydraulic oil filter can is seated properly and that the gasket is in place and in good shape. An air leak at that point could very easily cause your hydraulics to be intermittent.
