I have multiple leaks of fluids under my B. I put a catch pan under it and it looks like about 6 different little puddles form in about a week or so. Sort of looks like hydraulic fluid, cut could be gear oil. Doesn't look like engine oil. Any way to stop the leaks?

Only way to properly fix oil leaks like that is to take it apart and install new gaskets. It will never stop otherwise.

When you get to be from 61 to 78 years of age, you'll start leaking too. If you're looking for perfection, I haven't seen an American made piece of machinery that doesn't drip.

I have several old John Deere Two bangers, and not a one of them doesn't leak. Think about it, the two cylinders are banging and rattling all the time and some of them are well over 70 years old now and still running. True, maybe as stated in an earlier post about American made stuff leaking, but here they are 60-80 years later with a lot of abuse in some cases and very forgiving about how you treat them and use them yet they are still around. Try that with new tractors, cars or trucks today domestic or foreign.

Its one of the last ones made, a 1952 model. I don"t know exactly where all its leaking from. Looks like two kinds of fluid is leaking. There are two more pronounced leaks, and maybe 4 little ones. The total over the last 6 months is maybe 3 cups between them all.
