I bought my 2555 HST used with less than 200 hours on it. The tractor began leaking oil on the rubber mat, just under the steering wheel/dash area. I checked it out and the steering shaft seal was bad on the PSU. This item is made in Korea by the SINJIN Precision Co., LTD. I checked into a repair kit and there is nothing available. The dealer said I would have to replace it with a new PSU for around $1,100. I decided to remove my PSU and disassemble it. There is an inner quad ring #212, and outer shaft seal, 22 x 30 x 5, three larger case O-rings and four small O-rings for the hose fittings. All these will cost me less than $30. I'm a retired mechanic, so I figured I could rebuild this thing and if I mess it up or it doesn't work properly, I'll just buy a new PSU. This problem, the leakage of the PSU shaft seals is a common occurrence for the SINJIN units. They are machine very precision, but their choice of seals is not good. I wish Mahindra would redesign this PSU and have an American company build these, like Eaton or Parker Hannifin. It's a shame Mahindra purchases and install a faulty product for their tractors. To me, this is poor customer relations.

These series tractors are made by TYM. Not sure if the pricing would be less for the TYM vs Mahindra.
Someone should engineer a rebuild kit and market it!
