Hydraulic Screen Trashed
I just bought a YM1500D with a non-working loader. I pulled out the screen in bits and pieces along with a bunch of sludge. It was a mess. Can I simply put in a new screen or do I need a system flush or something?
Re: Hydraulic Screen Trashed
You'll get lots of answers...but here I go. It sounds like your screen filter hasn't been screening or filtering for a while! So you want a new screen and new fluid. I would tend to put in the screen after draining the junk in there. Then fill and drain again after running for a bit. Clean the screen and hopelfully you collect some stuff. Then put in your now re-cleaned screen with new fluid (?overkill-get more opinions) I know it is a lot of fluid but it sounds you you could have a tranny case full of b"bits-o-junk" and I would want that stuff outta there pronto.
