I have an AC 160 with the perkins diesel. I don"t use it very often, so the hydrualic pump mounted on the engine needs to be primed about every time I use the 3pt. I stripped out one bleed port already. I was able to find a used one. I have heard of people installing a valve on the bleed port instead of the allen head plug. I think the port has metric threads? How heavy of a valve do I need to install to handle the psi. Has anyone ever done this modification?

Hello Cris,
I would look at you suction line for a air leak I don't know how your tractor is set up, but if it has a rubber line if you could loop it up above the pump it would always have some oil to prime it self and you wouldn't have to bleed it.
Good luck Ed

Yes,I have use a 3-8" pipe brass ball valve with elbows to point upwards and end plug, to keep dirt out. This go's on high presure side the only one you can get to. pour a little oil in pipe then than plug valve pipe open valve have to do this many times, also add a 2in. long niple to valve to hold some oil. hope this will help. wish I could post pic's ain't that smart yet.
