Hello All...Happy New Year...new to the forum and recently bought a 1950 John Deere M. Noticed the oil level in crankcase is way past the full mark...thinking the hydraulic seal (touch o matic) has failed and leaking into crankcase. I bought this as a parade tractor and don't really have any use for the touch o matic hydraulics. If I drain out the oil from crankcase and refill to full mark and then just not use the touch o matic...would I hurt/break anything on the tractor? Your thoughts are deeply appreciated...thanks.
Jim

The hydraulic pump shafts, bushings, and gears are lubed by the hydraulic oil passing through it.

If you drain the hydraulic system, some residual oil would be left in the pump and likely lube it for quite a few hours of operation.

At some point, though, the pump will get "dry" enough to wear and gall parts. NOT a good plan.

The seal is readily available and not too big of a deal to install.

Also, for your uses of the tractor, the pump could be taken off and the drive coupling removed and the pump reinstalled.

No one would be the wiser looking at the tractor, and if the pump is needed to be functional at a later time, it could be taken off, resealed, and put back on with the coupling in place.

'Course, by that time the coupling would have gone missing!

I'd just put an oil seal in the pump ?
