New to skidsteers, purchased this 2001 753G a few months back. Had it out on the first job on Monday and noticed a wheel grind/noise coming from the right side (while sitting in the machine) when under tight turning. It only occurs when doing a zero turn, pushing out on the left lever and right lever in nuetral. I did check the Hydro levels/etc... prior to work on Monday. I did not recheck after, but did not see any leaks.

Did you have the revs up? you need to run the machine at near full throttle or it makes grinding/squealing noises when turning.

No, maybe 3/4 throttle.
3/4 should be enough....
Try near full and see if it works better, if not you may have another problem.
Mine makes a bit of noise when the revs are low, like 1/2 or lower but kick it to 3/4 to full it makes very little noise (that you can hear over the engine that is).
