So this leak has been bugging me a few months on my CK 30Hst Mostly just drops, but more when backhoe was engaged.

As you can see, looks like some distortion. More exactly a protected location.

Was a bit concerned how much fluid I’d lose taking apart, but quite minor, few tablespoons at most. Removed tube and immediately found fitting to be loose.

Cleaned all parts and wrapped with teflon tape before reassembling.

My plan was to attempt to restraighten tube, but hesitant as I didn’t want to damage. So reinserted tube, rotated just slightly, and tightened the nut behind Oring.

Ran several minutes also under pressure from rear remote. No leaks. Rechecked half hour later still good.

Hope this helps someone. A much simpler fix than I was dreading.
