    Default ford 1910 peek-a-boo hydraulics

    I have a well seasoned 1910 ford, last week i went to move some snowbank(weather has been 10-20 degrees), made one
    pass and the hydraulics were dead, no loader, no hitch, no power steering. feared the worst, hoped for the best.
    2 days later came home w/ new fluid and filter...before
    the change the hydraulics were working....changed the f&f
    and all seemed well (yes the fluid was a little milky and yes a few ice crystals were in there) 2 days later,made one
    pass, hydraulics dead again...i thought poss ice in filter so i brought in filter, defrosted and drained, and nothing but good clean fluid, no water.....the system is set up
    pump to steering valve to distribution block to hitch/loader
    if the pump were dead or dying i would think it would have
    either stayed dead or died a little slower....
    please render your thoughts S

    Got a warm garage? Watch real close as the hydraulics quit; did the cylinder hit the end of the stroke? Might be wedging the relief open with some ice. Is the pump still spinning? Might be bad keyway or gear. Even replacing the fluid would still leave ice in the cylinders if the machine wasn't warmed and completely drained. All the attachments have to be checked for contamination. Find out how that water is getting in there. SteveV
