Tractor Seat Collects Water
I have a Craftsman LT2000 Series tractor that seems to be collecting liquid INSIDE the seat. I've had this mower for about 10 years and noticed a liquid sloshing sound when tipping the seat forward somewhere around year 2. It seems to collect more every year and now some is very slowly leaking out when tipped just right. By "just right" I mean removed from the tractor you can tilt it in the right direction to get a few drops out before tilting it again. You cannot feel the water in the seat when sitting on it so it's more of an annoyance than an issue. I bought this tractor new and have never stored it outdoors, it's always in the garage. I've also never used it in the rain.
Question #1: How the **** does the water get into the seat?
Question #2: How the **** do I get the water out? Can I drill a small hole somewhere on the bottom to quickly drain this? What I'm doing now seems like it will take hours.
Question #3: What can I do to prevent this from continuing?
Tractor is model 247.288851.
Seat is part# 757-04145.
