Ok guys I got tired of the hyd. fluid dripping still (The prev. owner had just lost a line and 10 gallon's of fluid prior to purchase) so I started de-funking this thing and so far I have gotten about 70 Lbs. of crap removed. I figured it would be best to tell if it has any active leaks by getting it all cleaned up. The rear cover had a bolt missing and the insp. cover was slid back. This rear area was packed full of junk. After about 15 min. of knocking crap out I broke through and got about a gallon of fluid out. The 2 front holes were also blocked up - I got another gallon of crap out of the right front section as well. I have not made it to the very front of the unit and the goop appears to be pretty think as well. It looks like it might be more of a pain to clean out the front? Do I take the covers off the sides as well as coming through the 2 holes in front of the unit? As soon as I get all of the heavy stuff out I am going to take it to the power wash. It's good to see this unit now has a better home...
