Folks,
I just purchased a '77 MF 255 AD4.236 tractor. Fixing up some odds and ends on it. The aux hyd lines are leaking and if you look at attached pic these lines are a combination of rubber and metal. Can anyone comment if its ok to simply replace these old lines with new ALL soft lines? I was going to have NAPA store make me a couple of custom soft lines to replace the stock ones.

Don't see why not, that's what I would do.

Rework the support clamp so it is hose friendly. You can buy plastic block type clamps for rubber lines.

All hose ok. Better to cut steel line near hose and use compression fittings on steel lines and hose, pretty much like what is there now. Hyd shops can do that. Thats the way I go. Looks better and keeps hose away from operator.

I would not throw away those steel lines, once done no going back. All rubber would be just not the way to go, that would make it junky.

Those steel lines are there for safety. Bending a hose is where it will fail in the future and in the direction of the operator....

Yep, I will ask my hose guy to put a compression fitting on the steel line and take it from there.

My AGCO dealer cut the steel lines and fitted a flex line on no problem. Unfortunately, the way the metal bends were on the old lines he had to cut a decent amount of steel pipe off to make it work properly with the new fittings. Nonetheless, i kept as much of the steel line as i could and it all went back on np.
