Do you mean the hydraulic reservoir in the engine compartment or something else? That is the one that holds fluid for the power steering, engine fan and brake booster.

If you do mean the large hydraulic reservoir, it was made by Nelson, now owned by Cummins/Fleetguard and manufactured in Neilsville, WI.
Try Ryder Fleet Products for a replacement.

This article may be of interest Hydraulic Oil and Filter Change
I ordered the gasket from a Cummins dealer as Ryder did not have one. I have never seen a part number for the canister itself though.

Great article and the part number to the gasket. We believe the canister may have a crack in it but not positive. I'm just preparing. The whole reservoir is covered with oil. Cleaned it completely and drove about 300 miles and it's covered again. Not sure if it's the gasket not sealed or what.

It is easy for the gasket to get damaged when the filters are changed and that the clamp on the lid is not holding it down properly. Also the dipstick has to be turned hard down to expand the stopper. Do not fill above the low mark on the dipstick either.

Algoma's advice is excellent. Pay special attention to the dip-stick seal. Make sure you tighten it by turning the 'T' end clockwise (if left loose, the stopper will push out and then drop back when the engine is shut down, leading to a false indication of being secure).
The seal ring around the cover can also become hard over time and leak.

I'd be very surprised if the cannister is faulty.

Hi Kent, haven't heard from you for a while. Sorry to hear of your problem. I do not think I ever had that dip stick out. I think what Algona is saying with the T handle, is like the oil filler plug on a Cummins. Sometimes you need to hold the base to keep the entire plus from spinning, at the same time tighten the T handle. I hope I am telling you right. Hope that problem can be solve that easy. These guys are telling you right, Power steering brake booster and engine fan are all powered by the hydro boost. Best wishes, Don Robinson
