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

Thanks Greg, with the lift rod off it cycled just fine, now working good as ever. Now for something warmer then 20 below today's Hi to go use it in. It's around 65 above in the shop Perry, just didn't want to open the doors to run the engine at -35 outside. Lot of work cutting that wood ya know:D
