Hi Guys,

As the title says, I had a seal go bad on the loader lift. Probably from back dragging the bucket.

Anyways, lost a fair amount of hydro fluid. Took off cylinder and dropped it off at the shop today.

Can you tell me what I need to do once I get it back from the shop and re installed? Do I have to bleed out the air? Anything I should watch out for.

Thanks,

Just reinstall the cylinder and cycle the loader a few times. Then top off the hydraulic tank.

Thanks for the reply. I assume doing as you suggested will allow the air out of the system?

Yes it will take the air out.

Assemble everything back into place, start the tractor and move the lever till you see movement on the cylinder. It can take a few seconds to react since it has to fill the cylinder. Then you cycle it back and forward a couple times.
