I bought a seal kit for the rockshaft, just haven't fooled with it yet.

Not yet, was just servicing the tractor and looking at the box. I'll be digging into that soon.

Odd part, is that sometimes it does it bad, sometimes not at all; sometime when warm, sometimes when cold. There's no consistency which I find out.

Well, at long last I am pulling the tractor up to the garage in about an hour to start this repair. I will try and take some photos and post up how it went. Wish me luck,

Got it done, wasn't too bad. Just like Dave mentioned. Took everything apart to access the top of the rock shaft, the cover you need to take off is the one with the 3pt valve attached to it between your legs. The seal Dave mentioned was of course obliterated. So once the cover is off, just bounce the 3pt arms up and down to push the piston out, remove the old seal and guides, replace with the new ones, and reinstall. Simple process really.

Changes often!
Well done Jason. Not a hard job at all if a person is not opposed to turning a few wrenches.
