Got a green 2955 that has not been used much at all,,,pulled a feed wagon most of its life.
The clutch felt kinda soft when I got it. When I checked the clutch master cylinder it was very very low so I filled it up, bled the slave cylinder and it was fine. I saw no leaks, drips or seeps. That was 6 months ago.
Went to use it last night to pull a load of locust posts and it was soft again. Checked it and it was low again.
Filled it, bled it and it seems fine.
I know the fluid is going somewhere...but can't find it.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Hummm...not what I really wanted to hear. Everything looked dry...as much as I can see in there. Sounds like another Winter project after the PTO clutch pack in the red 656.
Thanks for the help.

I think the wind off the flywheel keeps it spread out & thrown into places that won't let leak show if its small.[soaks into clutch dust] hard to tell how long you can get by with it if its just a top-off every once in a while---one i fixed was same way, one day it just blew--THEN you can see fluid.

I don't use it all that much. Got it from an old farmer that did not want to sell it to just anyone.
I only put about 200 hrs a year on it. Most of that is on the hammer mill.
