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.
