Just take it to a hydralic shop. It'll be cheaper than you're dealer

I'm pretty sure they had a recall on this and they will fix it for free at the dealer. Not a 100% sure. Had the same problem but under warranty from dealer so I was good either way.

Part number 60 on the above diagram is the source part of the leak. As I said, no gaskets or seals appear to go with it.
If the seal or fitting is bad just go to NAPA they will make you a hose to fit in store.

The fittings (#60) that screw into the pump also take O rings, if loose they can leak, but can also be tightened. You can match up the O rings at any good hydraulic or power trans. house.

If it is indeed leaking from the middle of the elbow ( unlikely) then ya gotta replace the hose assy.
lawnsaspire,sorry should have explained it better than I did.Thought it was a flair fitting that is sealed when the flair nut compresses the flair to the mating surface.Looks like you have plenty of help now.

Crimped means CRIMPED, ya ain't pulling it apart!! The hose ASSEMBLY screws onto the adapter fitting (# 60), which is screwed into the pump housing.

You seem to be in over your head, and working in such tight quarters requires a certain skillset, and TOOLS, to ensure it ain't leaking when yer done.

Also, if ya gotta replace the hose, then you hafta deal with the same set-up at the wheel motor! Lotta potential fer leaks if ya don't know what yer doin'!
Got the fitting from parts tree and put it in today. The hose was not crimped to the fitting so there was no need to replace the hose assembly. The o ring had a tear which Allowd oil thru. I was glad I ordered a whole new part though bc it is a newer less bulky design. I'm guessing this is bc of the aforementioned recall. Thanks.
