    Ken,

    Nobody paying attention to you..??....I thought you'd be inundated with responses.....

    Not sure what hyd system you have....?? PTO Pump and separate reservoir..??...Any good AW-32 hyd oil or tractor/trans fluid would work (as long as it doesn't have water in it....)

    Unless the water has been emulsified with the hyd fluid, I would suspect it was on the bottom of the container, or reservoir/tank. Once it goes through the pump and several cycles, it would be emulsified.

    Git er done.

    Thanks Bill, Ya its a PTO with resevoir. I got the oil from my brother who has been a heavy equipment operator for about 45 years. the 5 gallon container got water in it some how and i did not notice it until I pumped about a gallon in.

    The Piston you rebiult for me looked great and went together nice and easy.

    Thanks for your help again, Ken

    Thought you might find this interesting while I was doing a google search on your Yanmar....

    Yahoo! Groups

    This could have been you......

    Yea, those PTO Gear pumps can handle any good quality hyd oil .....doesn't have to be the super premium stuff......

    Ya, I found that also today. But not much of any info out there on the 660. Thats why this forum is so great because of the knowlege of the members.
