    Default Ford 555 backhoe leaking transmission oil ????

    I was using my 555 backhoe today it has tranny with no clutch just forward and reverse lever. It started leaking oil out of access plate on tranny . The one with 4 bolts and plate comes off and you can see torque converter. Any ideas is it dead and how complicated to repair any suggestions will be helpful.

    Sounds like the converter seal. Tractor may need splitting, and seal replaced. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
