Oh, and the gasket for the plug that looks like it is seeping.
    I just did my pivot seals and all is well.
    Yes. That oil coming from the plug is because I did not have a rag handy and is there from when I topped it off. Why in the **** did they put the plug on the side? I have to tip my long neck funnel sideways to fill it and of course some runs out when you get to the point where it is full. I looked at a newer kubota last week when I was there with my brother who was buying a new snow plow. Fill plugs were on top of the axle. I will get everything cleaned off good and watch it. Then I will replace all those seals when I do the job. I am still surprised they are bad after only 1200 hours of operation on the machine. But. I do not know what the guy before me was doing during the 1100 hours he had it.
