    Make sure the gearbox vent isn't clogged. I don't know where it's located but that could be the problem.
    My 4610 had that problem around the top area where the shifter assembly bolts to the gear case and my understanding there is (or was) a kit to vent the gear box.

    If you can't tell where it is leaking, how do you expect any help from folks who can't even see the tractor?
    Clean it up very well and observe closely. When you find the source of the leak, we can talk.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    Now if I knew where it was leaking from I wouldn't be asking for help. Have already cleaned the area before. So but thanks I don't need your help anyways Rick b

    well.. you just ignor3d the help from the guy here that is likely most informed about that machine as he is a CNH guy.

    good job! what's your next act.

    you were given good advice.

    pressure wash the thing.. then after it dries.. look to see what becomes oily first.

    there's your leak.

    I'm glad i don't have one of your RV's... service there must be pitifull based on the lack of diagnostic skills I'm seeing.
