Need to Bleed??

Recommended Posts

While I had it out of the B-112 working on the steering I changed the oil in my hydro lift, don't recall having ever bleed one. Is CRS getting me? It won't lift at all and would raise the blower with the starter cranking before. Only ran it a very short time as it's 35 below out so don't want to open the doors up. Pump shaft is turning.

Fill w/oil then try it with the lift disconnected. Need to purge the air out. It usually self primes with no trbl..? You didnt run it while empty I'm sure, so it should be ok after a couple full in & out piston strokes to purge any air...Good Luck

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
