He said he saw an oil spot in his driveway, the oil is full, is ther only the one other fluid ?? The tranny fluid.
I wonder if a hose is leaking but I don't see anything in my garage floor ?? I will look at the sight glass to see,are you supposed to check that cold not running ??
If a hose is bad where do I get another one or can I make up my own ???

The hose for the site glass can be had at an auto parts store, but JD isn't that high on it.

Put a clean sheet of cardboard under it after you've warmed it up for a while. That should give you an idea of where the leak came from.

Sounds like the neighbor is a little anal, if that's what it was.
Surprised the DEP wasn't called out. :biglaugh:

Another reason I'm glad I don't have any neighbor's close by. :fing32:

Could be that the neighbor was trying to be helpful in letting him know he might have an oil leak on his tractor. Or this could have been the first step before he takes you to small claims court to replace his driveway. Hard to say.
