    Default Front loader hyd. bleeding procedure

    I finally got the B6000E for the church. Person who donated it went into the Hospital the day I went to pick it up had to wait a while longer. He had a hip replacement and that comes with a long recovery. He is doing very good for his age.
    When I got the tractor over to the Church I changed the oils. I have air in the front loader hydraulic lines and have to bleed them. I was hoping someone could give me some guidance and let me know where to start
    For a tractor that sat for several years(in a shed) it sure runs great. Donor told me he brought the B6000E when it was new in 1973. He only used this tractor for a small garden and in all the years it never left the yard. He gave me all the manuals but there is nothing about a bleeding procedure for the loader.
    Thank you in advance- Craig

    Cycling both functions of the loader from stop-to-stop will clear the air, there is no need to bleed any lines or cylinders. The system is self-bleeding.

    Agreed.........Run it to the stops and the air will bleed back to the reservoir and be gone.

    And then recheck your level. Done deal.

    Thanks for all the replies. I was still having trouble with the loader being sluggish . I sat back and thought about it and realized the one thing I hadn't checked was the tension on the belt for the pump. Once I did the adjustment everything was okayAgain thank for your help!
