Trying to help my neighbor with his 2590. Started the tractor this week and he had no hydraulics. When he pushed in the clutch there was no surge. There was no brakes or steering and the tractor would not go into gear while the engine was running. We changed the hydraulic filters started the tractor and it died. And how the tractor will not run. It will start but die. Are the two problems related? Can you check the hydraulic pump or the pump drive with no engine power. Could the charge pump be the problem. Thanks in advance

You don't say if the tractor is sitting in a heated shop or not......if not. I would be suspicious of ice in the housing, causing blockage of oil suction. Severe damage will result very quickly if you do succeed in getting it running. Procede with caution!!

If you have that much water in your hyd. system (we are talking alot of water)you have a lot bigger problems.Barring the hyd. problem will it now at least turn over. To clean that inlet screen correctly you must split that tractor.We had a 2590 that broke those beveled gears,plus ruined the input shaft.

The tractor is sitting outside in a open storage . Yes I have thought about ice. Would it hurt to not start the tractor and pull it into the shop? We can pull out the PTO housing and hopefully thaw the tractor out inside the shop if in fact ice is the problem.

Probably a plugged suction screen in the transmission is causing the loss of steering and hydraulics. The steering pump is seperate from the main hyd system so losing it points directly to an oil supply problem. Sticking pilot spools will cause the stalling as soon as the engine starts but should not with no oil supply. Let us know what you find. Pump failure is fairly rare but possible. mEl
