CA hydraulic fill point

I have a 52 CA that needs hydraulic fluid. I can get pressure when I'm on a hill but not flat land. The manual I have says the hydraulic fluid goes in the fill hole under my left foot (under the deck). However, I filled that with fluid and I still can't get any pressure. Did I do something bad? Or do I need to rebuild my pump? If I need to rebuild my pump, any hints on kits or rebuild suggestions?

Thank you,

Charles. there are three 1/2 inch pipe plugs on the bottom of the housing. the transmission, alxe, and PTO/hydraulic compartments area all tied together on the inside. You need to pull the plugs and flush out any water and crud. there is a small divider wall in the back and the hydraulics can get accumulated crud on the suction area. the filler for all thee is by your left foot as you said. refill with trans-hydraulic fluid (wal mart or farm store) or use a 20 wt engine oil. do not use gear lube or other thick oil, it can damage the pump. there is a 1/4 inch pipe plug on top of the pump that you can remove to prime the pump or blead off air if needed. take the hose off the cylinder and stick in a bucket and see what kind of flow you get.

its a good idea, but the hydraulics are so minimal and do so little that it dont make much difference. I ran 10w30 in a C engine and transmission/pto for some time and never had a problem. but no i use hy- trans in the "IB"

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Hydraulics - The Basics - by Curtis Von Fange. Hydraulics was one of the greatest inventions for helping man compound the work he can do. Itís amazing how a little floor jack can lift tons and tons of weight with just the flick of a handle. Whatís even more amazing is that all the principals of hydraulic theory can be wrapped up in such a small package. This same package applies to any hydraulic system from the largest bulldozer to the oldest and smallest tractor. This short series will take a look at the basic layout of a simple hydraul ...
