The upper swivel is a part of the hose and this is where it usually leaks. The o-ring is built into the swivel and cannot be replaced. Because the replacement hose is around $300.00, I merely remake them for a fraction of the cost. 

I have been doing this for about 15 years and the finished product is better than the original. I will try to "cut and paste" my instructions and a picture to this post. I am not quite sure how to do it, but I will try.

Here goes:

460-560 Main Hydraulic Hose

To fix the main hydraulic hose that come off of the pump flange, cut off the pipe ½" below the old hose on the 560, or 1 5/8" below the old hose on the 460.

Obtain a black ¾" - ½" bell reducer. Using the mill, drill the ½" end out with a ¾ or 7/8" drill, depending on the size of the original pipe. Slide this drilled fitting over the original pipe and braze it on.

Make a ¾" 2-wire hose, 15 inches long with ¾" male fittings on both ends.

Couple together a 848FS-14x12 orb adapter with a 60SG-12x12 ¾"swivel. Install a 237-6014 o-ring on the tapered end and insert into the tractor hydraulic casting.

Install a 238-5117 o-ring into the original lower pipe recess and reinstall it onto the hydraulic pump flange. Couple the hose assembly to the previously install ¾" swivel assembly.

Note: I paint everything before installation.

Ok. Now to try to attach a picture; it is of a 460 that I did a couple of months ago.

That looks great! I'll round up some fittings and go to work, thanks!
