Early in the summer I upgraded to a hydraulic setup. After everything was installed & tightened down I was eager to hook on to a tandem disc. After hooking to the hydraulic lift cylinder, it only moved stoked the cylinder 1" & stopped. I checked the fluid & it is nearly empty.
The fluid is dumping into the transmission somewhere, however I am not for certian. I am going to pull the unit out here in the next couple weeks & I am wanting some imput on what & where to look for. In theory, If I can get a power shaft, cut it down to where the splines that drive the pump & turn the shaft down to fit in a 1/2" drill. My thought is that if I can get the pump to turn fast enough to build up pressure, it should be able to spew out fluid where ever it is coming from.
Any thoughts or imput on how to test this system out of the tractor would be helpful.
