    Default YM2500 hydraulic-transmission flush

    Had problems with slow hydraulics which turned out to be weak pump. Have replaced pump and would like to flush trans, hyd and fel systems. Thought I would mix 50-50 diesel and utf, run until warm then drain and replace utr. I'm thinking the mix should provide enough lubrication but be thinner to wash out any debry. Has anyone flushed a system with a similar method. Thanks. Dan

    Point to consider: Would the fuel eat up any seals? You may have to flush the unit several tiimes to get all of the old "cleaning" fluid out. I would thinks new fluid run for a period of time would help clean out the total system.
