Recently picked up this tractor..
Repaired the lever that allows the lift arms to move up and down because it was broken..
Changed all fluids including hydraulic fluid.
Start the tractor / move the up down lever and nothing.
Lift arms probably haven't been used in years.
Has anyone had any luck applying air pressure to the dip stick hole to prime the hydraulic pump and if so..
is this way of priming the pump common?
Looked but don't see a bleeder screw anywhere on pump? which is weird...
I don't plan on using the lift arms for anything just yet but figured it's the only thing not functioning on this ole 55 Ford.. might as well fix it.
