    Default LS G3033H line leak

    My new (7 hrs) 3033H sprung a leak! Two hydraulic lines running laterally under the transmission with a welded on support clamp/bracket, and the forward line sprung a leak right where the bracket is welded to the line.
    I'm a retired USAF aircraft maintenance chief, and any time a hydraulic line needed support, it typically had a removable adel or line clamp. Vibrations can cause forces over 10Gs, that split sheet metal and rupture lines under pressure. Anyway, I notified my sales dealer who had ordered the assembly. Has anyone else experienced this failure? When the new part gets installed, I'll look to make this support better if this will be an issue in the future.-leaker-jpg

    Same make and model although I think I have a slightly different mount. What model year is yours? Pic may be too dark to see.

    I haven't seen this on any of our LS tractors, but I've had it happen on Cummins engine fuel lines before.

    Follow up 22 Jul 2014: My dealer/service center ordered the hyd line I needed a week ago. It arrived 21 JULY 2014. 22 July, I pulled the faulty line and drove 56 miles to swap it with the new one, but the dealer received the wrong line! He suggested that if I didn't want to wait another week or so for a re-order, which I didn't, I could take the leaking line to a hose repair shop where he has an account and have them silver solder the hole. I did that, drove back home and installed it.

    So much for customer support and honoring a warranty issue. The dealer did let me have the two lines I did not need, free of charge, but what about the 112 miles and hours I have to expend removing, waiting for repair, and reinstalling? This was non-support for a simple hyd line, I can't imagine what I'd get for a serious warranty issue.

    I emailed Craig O'Brien (CRAIG.OBRIEN@LSTRACTORUSA.COM) to let him know how disappointed I am with this level of customer service, he read the email but offered no response.
