    Default changing hydraulic/transmission fluids

    I'm ready to do my 50 hr change of all my fluids and had a question on the hydraulic/tranny fluid. Will dropping all the drain plugs fully drain the system all will some fluid be trapped in the loader cylinders? If fully drained I assume when I use it the first time it may take a few seconds for the loader to respond until the cylinders refill? I'm switching to amsoil (Feel free to answer this one Mark!) and was concerned about the residual fluid mixing with the synthetic.

    Gerard - I wouldn't worry about the left-over oil mixing with the synthetic. It won't hurt anything, with the quatities you're dealing with. To minimize the amount of fluid left in the system, you can retract all the cylinders.

    Does that mean 3 point down or up to get most fluid out?
