    Default Re: FEL Quick-Connect problem

    Heath,

    After I get my loader off the tractor and before I disconnect the quik connects I shut the tractor off and then run the joystick in all the positions so the hydraulic fluid equalises. Then when you come back to hook up again there is no pressure in the hoses. I have even had times where the bucket has settled while sitting on the ground and I have had trouble. I put a rag over the hose ends and tap them on the ground to release the pressure. You won't hurt anything by doing that.

    Heath,the problem when hooking up is the hydraulic fluid in the hoeses and tubing has expanded do to heat from sun, ambient temp. Get some oil absorbent pads, shot loaded hammer,tap male coupler and connect. Made a tool with bolt, tee handle, U shaped bracket with notch to fit behind coupling, put pad under coupler slip tool on turn tee handle, relif pressure done.
