When changing my lines from the Quick Connect back over to the FEL, I accidently hit the nipple at the end of the male connector (never thought I'd be writing that sentance, lol) and about a half a cup of fluid squirted out before I could connect the two. Of course the loader dropped.

It worked fine afterwards and I will be doing my 50hr change on 20 hrs.

Should I have to add any more before that service??

Thanks, Bill

A half cup of oil is no big deal. Next time all the hydraulics should be relaxed before working with QCs.

Thanks Trans, but I left the FEL on when Snowblowing and didn't think to relax the QR before reconnecting the FEL.
