    Default kabota bx23

    When I loaded the tractor on the trailer I heard a bubbling sound coming from the back of the tractor,what I saw was the breather was spitting out hydraulic oil all over. I stopped by the dealer and asked them about it, they said that it was getting vapor locked and I need to put in another air vent. They can do this for around 85 bucks or is this something I can do myself. Thanks for all advice you can give me

    There is a kubota specific forum where you might get better response.
    I've not heard of vapor lock on the hydraulics. Was it put up HOT after topping off the fluids cold?

    Are you sure it wasn't over full?
    It might have been the angle?
    Were did the oil come from exactly?
    Iv had some come from the dipstick that wasn't seated properly when i was at an odd angle?

    I had topped the hydraulics several days befor, I used a 9in auger drilled several holes then put back on the trailer. No I didnt over fill or was on a weird angle. The guy at the dealer said that they had two other tractors that did the same thing and they put in another breather tube and it fixed the problem
