    Hi, I have a 555A on the side but bok strates plain 555. Anyway serial is 555-a-271484T . Been going through everything to get back up to par, and noticing fluid coming out in the belly pan from what appears to be a weep hole with a small 90 coming out of it. What could be my problem? Seems to be a pretty good drip. Thanks for all the help, Steve

    U didn’t feel it.??
    Could b anything.. fuel, coolant or hydraulic fluid.??
    If it’s a steady drip from a weep hole.. depending on what injection pump u have, some of them have a weep hole in the pump housing to tell u the front seals have “gone out” and it’s getting ready to blow and dump fuel into the oil.
    Try shutting off the fuel at the tank or pinch a rubber line if u have one & see if it stops or slows down..

    Injection pump is leaking also, but this is coming from the transmission, and appears close to where the engine and transmission connect, where the pump is.

    The small a in your model and serial code just means it was set up as a loader apparently, FYI, you have a straight "triple nickel".
