    I got the tram motors to turn briefly by turning out the screw on the brake valve,I put the cover back on the tram motors and now it won’t do anything. Does that screw have anything to do with the pressure to the brakes?

    Cat 225 excavator part number 8k2183

    I’m not 100 percent sure it’s leaking at that joint ,it’s either leaking where I’m pointing at or at the oring mating surface. It’s leaking too bad to tell for sure. I just don’t wanna put it back together and it leak from that pipe. It’s definitely not welded because it’ll spin

    Cat 225 excavator part number 8k2183

    I’m pointing to the area with a screwdriver that it’s apparently leaking from. The top section that has the o/ring boss swivels on that tube that is one assembly with the bottom square block.
