john deere 855

johnrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I've replaced both metal hydraulic lines coming and going to the raidator,A real pain due to the routing. Now one of them is again leaking, (its rubbed against a metal support and a leak formed.
Can i replace the affected area with a rubber hydraulic line. High pressure does not appear to be involved.

Dale G. Basgall john ; those cooler lines always test me out also, I think the designer had an anger management issue and designed in a test for every mechanic that has tried to do that one.

Anyway that may be lube oil returning and there is pressure associated with the tubing but can you weld the hole rubbed into it, those lines are steel and they offer an extra cooling potential for the oil. Try out hose but it could be a problem cause of room, weld it if you can but I know this is not in the book but how bout JB weld. Just cut some strips of tin foil make the JB and apply it to the hole like a very light coat and let it get sticky and wrap the tin foil around one time and let it dry. Then coat the next piece of tin foil and again wrap it and let it dry. Keep going until you have several good layers of tin and JB weld.

johnrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Thanks for a great idea, i've used jb weld before and I think your suggestion will work.
keep up answering questions, its really appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

johnrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Wasn't able to get the lines out easily and ended up using a tube cutter. The lines are aluminum and cut easily. Went down to an auto parts supply and bought some hydraulic resistant tubing and double hose clamped the piece in place, using cable ties to position.
All seems well. Keep this site working, it does a lot of good.
Thanks again.

danny After replacing both lines 2x for the same reason, I finally went with a hydraulic hose for one of them the last time and it has held up with no problem - a little tight on the back end, but no leaks after 2 years, the longest yet.
Brian I have the same issue. How did you cut the hydraulic lines? I am concerned if I use a hack saw I will get metal shavings in the hydraulic system. Thanks.
