I picked up this case 444 the other week for a great price. I've cut my yard twice and I'm I. Lobe. My question is this I was cutting yesterday and heard a pop all of a sudden thinking it was a stick I assumed nothing major. Well I was wrong. Lucky enough I just had finished mowing and backed the tractor onto my carport and noticed oil gushing out. Upon my investigation I found the the dust and debri cover had came loose and punctured the rubber hydraulic line. My question is this does some know what size line I need? This is the line running from the hydraulic tank to the radiator.

sc
i,m not sure of your 444 year,
but most did use a 3/4 i.d. hose
as stated by my case.
DO NOT USE AUTOMOTIVE HEATER HOSE
i use gates # 12 RLA hose. ( it was o.e.m. on my 82 448 )
it is ava. at carquest
# 85946 25' roll, but most will sell by the foot or inch.
it has 200 psi working pressure,
and a 800 psi burst pressues.
thank you. boomer

Just what Boomer said, don't use heater hose as it will be leaking/breaking and you will b replacing it soon. You need at the least to use hydraulic rated hose.

The model year of your tractor will determine the exact amount needed to fill the system. If you get 2 gallons of Shell Rotella-T 15W-40 or any other brand high grade "motor oil" you will be fine ..... Don't use hydraulic oil ....
