    I went out to use the tractor this afternoon and now the hydraulic connection at the 3rd function valve under he tractor is leaking badly. A full stream of fluid. Looks like a faulty connection. Looks like the 3rd function installation was a bust for the dealer on this one....

    Appreciate your help.
    I will take some pictures of the pages later tonight. They should have gave you a copy of the instructions. I got copies of all of my dealer installed options.

    That's what I thought too, just didn't have anything to compare it to, but I was pretty sure it should be run under the tractor and up through the boot.

    Based upon the quality of the existing work, I would scrupulously inspect any future work perfomed by the same entity prior to signing off on it.

    That's awful nice of you. I wouldn't let them do any future work at all.

    That wire routing is complete crap. The factory kit is PERFECTLY integrated and designed so the wiring is all hidden and protected. That dealer took the stupid easy way out and did a piss-poor job. The only hope is that they adjusted the labor charge accordingly for all of the time they saved by NOT doing the work properly and per the instructions.

    Wanted to follow up with some after pictures. My dealer picked up the tractor the next day after it was delivered and basically did a complete "redo" om the 3rd function valve installation.

    This is what the 3rd function valve installation should look like....

    Where did the wires go

    That looks a lot better. I would keep a piece of cardboard under it to be sure it is not leaking.

    I have been watching it close....so far very clean...I can tell all of the 3rd function hydraulic connections have been replaced and properly seated this time.
