Bleed your pump.
Looks like you have the squareish shaped vane pump.
I've never done it on one of those but there must be a bleeder on it.
Piston pumps (1955-1975) have a socket head pipe plug on the side of the pump. With the engine at slow idle crack that plug and let it spit till all of the air gets out of it. Then retighten.
Makes a big mess so use a pan under it.
What's the oil filter behind the radius rod for?
Nice looking tractor.

That's the Hydraulic Oil filter setup.
The gage on it is incorrect but I have the right one now.
It tells you when the filter needs servicing.
..... But I'm particularily concerned with the creativity that happened on assembling disk to rim. The Spirit had a sax repairman named Dave who is my neighbor, give me a thin tympany head years ago! I made two bongo heads out of it and had some left over. So I made backing washers for the disk itself and under the lug nut washer. I soaked them all in Tung oil, then thought baby oil might be best. Baby oil sucks on drum heads so i finally found a use for it.
Behind the head of the lag bolt is a bed of Prematex Ultra Blue I had in my stash.
The lug nuts would hang nicely from the hat ring, kept there by thread on leather washers, TOUGH and thin. :D
So with the heads hanging down 1/2" I loaded the heads and square drive with strong silicone.
It was touch and go for a bit till I fortunately realized I needed a handle I Could count on, to lower the disk without dinging the paint. I got it out of there quickly and went to build a handle out of a battery strap. . . the crappy ones without the little grabbers.
As I was torquing them, a tiny bit of oil came out, yet to look at them after an overnight soak, they hardly seemed fatter, but they were, holding oil . . .
Funny. . . best little gasket I've ever used. :D
I had to crank each leather washer on, first only thinking about sealing out water, so I was making the hole tight . . . but to my surprise I could use them to hold my bolts up like guidepins.
The first crappy disk handle I used, I almost slipped, but at least while down in there I reallized I could wiggle the disk onto all the suspended floating bolts!!
It was a thing of beauty, I'll tell you.
And not the slightest bruise on the paint. :D
I had to stick my arm through to hold each head and sometimes force them upward . . . through those pesky washers. So my elbow was killing me until I padded the edge of the entry port.
the nuts and washers I sprayed with some Krylon, metallic dark grey stuff that a sound engineer left me after I sprayed some speaker grilles for him. Pretty tough stuff. My red on the
axle wheel nuts was whimpy under the socket much moreso than the Krylon.
This Valspar gloss black rust paint smells very heavy duty and seems to be drying hard. I did my steering wheel spokes and the bottom of my International gas tank.
See if I've explained the photos well enough.
Ooops. . . photos to follow.
Don't mind me,
I'm a kid with a brand new toy
Saddest sights in the world
Are a tractor without wheels
And a farmer
Without joy :P
