    All done putting proper replacement back up orings on manifold and no more leaks and back to pushing dirt. It seems like the tractor has more power now, not sure if tearing everything apart made a difference or if taking the dozer blade off for repairs a loud it to pop wheels now.

    Thanks but LJ is sending me the right ones, its amazing how much you have to retighten after the new gaskets soak up alittle oil.

    Put everything back together with new o rings and white spit back up rings and everything works. But than I looked for leaks and found out the white split rings they sent me were not supposed to be used but the black solid rings were to be used. I put the original rings back in on top of the orings and trying now to fix leaks from manifold and new gaskets.

    Got things back together and have some minor things to resemble but it lives again. Thanks for all who had advice to give, this site is well needed for those who have wheel horses or those who have information and like to share it.

    When I told LJ that I could push the tractor without turning the tow valve he said the retaining clip coming apart in the motor was the culprit because there was no pressure holding the pistons against the swash plate if I remember correctly.

    LJ fluid is a great wheel horse doctor, tell him the symptoms and he tells you the fix.

    This is what I found when I opened up the motor, L J fluid is a must go place for hard to figure out issues. Now its time to order parts.

    Just talked to LJ fluid and told L J what happened and he said that it sounds like the spring and retainer in the motor cylender block came apart and happens on the motor more than it does on the pump. It's a inexpensive fix if thats what it is and they have lots of parts for the D series piston to piston pumps. Will keep you all informed.

    Moved engine to check coupler and splines and they are all there, nothing broke, next is to check pressure.

    Getting a pressure guage from a friend and in the meantime I removed charge plug and oil and air bubbles flow out a couple inchs high when at idle if that indicates anything.

    Page 48 has the hydrogear trouble shooting chart and the symptoms point to a malfunctioning valve in center section and says to do a hydrogear tune up but I am unable to find the wheel-a-matic manual anywhere online.

    How much pressure should there be on the charge pump? And when engine runs alot of oil comes out of the implement and charge pump plugs when I loosened them but didnt want to take completely out because oil was already pouring out. Also in the manual it says if you can push the tractor when tow valve is closed and have no forward/reverse and no implement power it is somthing in the center section but what is the center section if anyone knows.

    would there still be oil flow if the pin was sheared even if it was low oil flow and is taking the pump off the only way to check? thanks

    oil pours out if I loosen either one of the plugs on top of the pump and I know its flowing back to the motor because the manifold gets warm, which line is the suction line, thanks.
