I have a JD 112L which is my wrenching machine, the GT235 gets all the work. Anyway I'm slowly "refreshing/restoring" the 112L and it has an Eaton Hydrostatic Transmission. When I was still mowing with this I would have to top off the hydro fluid before every mow, and sometimes during a long mowing session I would need to top it off during. Its not leaking around the drain plug, but its obviously leaking elsewhere. I went out the other day to start it and the transmission was dry. Are there rebuild kits for these? Would I be better off trying to source a used one? I don't want to sink a ton of money into this either, eventually I want to sell it for my next project.......

Check the final drive case bolts. If it has been previosly opened, there's a chance that the bolts have worked looseand dumped the oil.

Other locations are the seals on any shafts protruding from the case and any implement hydraulic lift hoses, etc.

Thanks for the advice I'll check all the final drive bolts.......I wish there were implement hoses to check, the 112L is a small lawn tractor......I see you're from Sault St. Marie, are you a SOO Greyhounds fan?

I do favour the local franchise, just not a big fan of the sport in general since the donnybrooks in the NHL of the '60s. I liked watching Hockey Night in Canada with Foster Hewett, but I wasn't a fan of the Saturday Night Fights on ice. Little Beaver and Al "Bunny" Dunlop on Saturday morning wrestling were more to my taste.

The NHL play-off season is now a w-a-a-a-a-y too long to be of any interest to me and that spills over onto the Hounds.

I'm afraid all of that was a little before my time, my only memories of HNIC is with Don Cherry.....a scary thought!
