Just bought a Case 970 with a really nice Buhler 595 loader on it. The tractor has been sitting for two years but it started up like it ran yesterday. Engine sounds beautiful. It has the 8-Speed standard tranny with a fresh clutch in it. All of that is fine. The hydraulics are slow and the steering is very stiff. Where do I start? New filter and fresh hydraulic fluid? Is there a screen anywhere on the hydraulics that might need cleaned? Thanks for your help.

I suspect your pump is on the way out, A flo test by a knowledgable Case Tech familiar with that series tractor will be your best investment. mEl

When I pulled the cap at the back, just out of curiosity, I noticed that the fluid was all the way to the top of the filler. It shouldn't be that full should it? Would that possibly have an effect on the pump/steering/hydraulics? Thanks for your help.
