Depending on the location of the leak, you might be able to braze it. It's a fairly common repair.

Feels good yes it does :D :D , been a longtime coming to . The leak is on the line side between the line and the mounting flange , going to put some braze on , looks like the previous owner did some brazing also.

Thanks for the good words!

Hi,
Good news that it runs.

Here is a page from the Cub owner's manual telling how to fill the Touch Control system and remove the air from the system. Be sure to do what it says in paragraph 4 to remove the air.
The name of the fluid has changed since the manual was made.
Nowadays they recommend on here to use Case IH Hy-Tran fluid. :)

I finally found the correct fluid at Tractor Supply.
