Looks to be steel tubing, so lines may have hole rubbed in it.Just have to get in there and see if you can see where leak is coming from.

What about seal in steering assembly?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 6 years ago

Can be, but that leak should be under the column.

Its wet in the area behind the panel under the key switch
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 6 years ago

With the steering gear, there are plenty of places for a leak, it's just so congested, it is hard to get a look. Just have to remove covers and get in there and look for source. Sorry, no good way to find a leak!

JD 4210 compact utility tractor: October a year ago, I was
October a year ago, I was using a scraper blade on rear of tractor when the rockshaft arms just fell all the way down. I serviced the rockshaft filter to no avail. I then drained all the hydraulic oil and changed the suction filter and the filter screen, hydraulic filter and replaced the hydraulic oil. Immediately started the tractor and the rockshaft arms began working again. However, the tractor since that time has seemed sluggish and has not performed to its peak. I have changed both air filters, fuel filters, drained and cleaned the fuel tank, replaced the fuel lines, checked and cleaned the radiator and nothing changes the loss of power I have experienced. Today, while cutting grass, the rockshaft arms fell to their full down position and I wasn't even using the rockshaft control lever. Any thoughts or ideas on what's wrong with with the tractor and how to correct it will be sincerely appreciated. … read more
