Super A hydraulics Again

I asked a question about this last August and the answer was right on target. I have looked at all 771 hydraulic messages in the archives, and didn't seem to find the answer to this one. Last August the hydraulics quit working and someone said to check the pump. When I took it apart, I found the nut on the shaft had came off. After putting it on, everything worked perfect. A couple of weeks ago I was going to plow, and the disk wouldn't lift. Thinking it was the nut again, I took the pump off but it was on and everything in there "looked" new. Well, I put new oil in, bled it good, (using both front and back levers at the same time) but it won't lift over a couple of inches with any weight on back. With no weight on back, it works like it is supposed to. I am using the same set of 4'disk that I've used for years. There is no oil getting mixed into the engine oil, so I am assuming there is no leak. I don't have access to a gauge to see how much pressure it is putting out. Being physically limited to what I can do at the present moment, I would like to do whatever it takes the first time if possible. Any ideas on where to start? Thanks guys for a wonderful site. Merlin.

One of the plugs on the Touch Control head can be removed to get to an orifice. I don't remember which one. If it is plugged, the hydraulics quit working. From what i remember, it stops completely. Maybe that is your problem. If not, at least it is relatively easy to check (compared with pulling the whole thing apart). You should be able to get at this by removing the battery.

Hi Merlin, Sure buy a pressure gauge and starting trouble shooting. Any thing less will be guessing but here's a hydraulic website to get you used to what to look for. Are you sure your oil level is ok?

Thanks T_Bone for the information. I enjoyed reading the hydraulic website. Yes, the oil level is correct. I bled it according to the manual also. I guess sometime this week I will pull the reservoir off and tear it down. I cleaned the filter, but it wasn't even dirty. Its garden time and I am going to try to put a small one in if I can. Thanks again. Merlin.

Today's Featured Article - Show Coverage: Fair Weather Tractor - by Dave M.. No, Fair Weather isn't some rare brand. It's the kind you can't leave out in the rain. Here's how it happened. I had been casually looking for a tractor for weeks. I saw a few 9N's, but they had even fewer amenities than the 8N my Grandpa bought new in '52 with a Dearborn loader. That was 10 years before I was born, so I grew up thinking that 8N was the world's best tractor. Grandpa had greenhouses, with over half an acre under glass, and that 8N did almost everything. It was the only ... [Read Article]
