I have run several drains for Seedhawks and I also have the same tractor as the OP. I have been using flat face connectors instead of the messy pioneer-with-the-middle-poked-out option. Seed hawk reps told me this isn't a problem the only reason they use open couplers is so that if the return comes unplugged then it wouldn't pressurize the toolbar. I wasn't concerned and have been running it this way for 2 seasons without issue. As far as the tractor plumbing, you really can't use anything thats factory on the Case, their "case drain" actually dumps back into the rear diff and takes a while to make its way through the system. It actually has enough back pressure that it can blow seals out of air cart fans if they run too much oil bypass, I know from experience. If you look on the back of the hyd tank there is a large steel pipe that has various different connections coming out of it, there is a cap on one of them, you can remove the cap and connect a hyd line directly onto there, it is a flat face o ring type fitting so make sure your dealer has the proper fittings to make a hose.
