180 hydraulics

Can someone please help me out. I know this has been discussed before but I have a 180 diesel. With the hydraulic fluid full, it tends to "run out" of fluid. It seems that the fluid is not getting back to the reservoir as fast as it is being scavenged. Once the fluid is warm it operates correctly. Well, the steering is pretty slow all of the time but it is nonexistent in the above scenario. The steering, loader, etc. seems to work intermittently as fluid seems to return to the reservoir. PLEASE HELP. Is there possibly a screen in the return line? It is full of fluid and a fairly new filter. Thanks.

I"ve got a 180 that done the same thing. Check the rubber connection tube sleeves at the pump, make sure the clamps are tight. What finally fixed mine was adding extra fluid, about a 1/2 inch above the full mark solved the problem on mine.

Take the dipstick out and shake it , theres a steel ball under the metal cap along with steel wool, it has to rattle or move- thats the vent to let air escape

It does not leak into the transmission. Definitely getting starved for oil. Do I need to drop a pan or something to get to the sump or is there one on the return? Thanks

Yes there is a cast iron pan under the Powerdirector ; the pickup tube is bolted to it and runs to the pump , its about a 2 inch metal tube that runs along the frame

Theres a screen under the sump, its where the pump sucks the fluid, sounds kinda like its sucking air or the pump maybe weak,, does it leak into the transmission?

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
