What is the preferred method of bleeding the hydraulic system on a 48 WD? Where do you bleed it from to get all the air out of the system and the lift cylinders?

They are self-bleeding. Even if you open and drain the whole system, rams, hoses, sump etc , refill and by raising and lowering a few times they will self-bleed. The manual states this and we have had WD's for over 50 years so are experianced with it. I just did this with my 1948 WD.

Raise the lift and shut down the tractor. Then loosen the packing nut on either cylinder until oil drips out. Tighten the nuts back down until drips stop and drop the lift. (If the packing nuts are too tight, the lift may not drop.) You're done.

Today's Featured Article - Pop's Tractor of Gold - by Gary Teate. My father was a simple man but could repair just about anythin mechanical that was ever made. From the time I was a young boy growing up in Jacksonville, Florida, I would spend a considerable amount of time helping my father repair or rebuild equipment and engines, etc. on our 2 1/2 acre "spread". Pop always dreamed of having more acreage out in the country where he could retire and tinker as much as he wanted and often reminisced about his boyhood days on his grandfathers farm in Montecello, ...
