How do I get at my hydraulics leak? 316 Kohler

Ok, so my 316K has been leaking hydraulic fluid since I got it. The first thing I did was change the fluid and filter because I saw drips from the cooling pipe. I thought maybe loosening and retightening this during a fluid change might fix the problem. It didn't, I don't know if the problem is worse now than before or if I'm just more conscious of it but it is dripping pretty steadily.

Well, I got under there and cleaned a bunch of grime out and it seems the leak is coming from the very top hose above the hydraulic control valve. I can barely see the hose, let alone get a wrench on it's coupling. Am I going to have to take out all of the hydraulics lines to get at this thing? This old tractor stuff is getting less and less fun.

Maybe if you pull the fender pan and seat, you'll have better access.
I won't pick on you about that, because my kids are going to think I'm ancient when they realize I grew up with no internet.
I grew up with no car, no computer, no TV, and I turned out just fine. Wait a minute, somebody's clanging on my jail cell door.
