You say it's the Hyd. filter, which there are two, is this correct ? Is only one leaking or both?
I ride Moto Guzzi’s.. the tractor of the motorcycle world🙂A friend who raced Moto Guzzi motorcycles (back in the 80's) showed me one of the race mechanics' tricks. He put a hose clamp around the filter positioned so that the screw/worm tighening mechanism was up against the engine's casting. This prevents the filter from unscrewing and dumping the oil. Might that work for you?
Thanks for sharing the information!VINDICATED!!!!! My Kioti Dealer just told me that Kioti determined the filter was engineered with a defect that results in the filter unscrewing with heat/cool cycles. The dealer had 4 other people within 24 hours complain about the same issue and they reproduced it in their shop. They contacted Kioti who investigated the issue and determined it was a defect in the design of the filter. New filters have been issued (Part # T5855-46531) that are I believe the same filter used in their full size tractor. So I was not going crazy! Don't buy the old filter off Amazon or other locations that may have a stock of the old.
