help with hydraulic pump

Postby Danno » Thu Aug 10, 2017 9:14 pm

I have a 49 with a nice little hydraulic pump setup. just got the tractor back to running condition but no movement on the bar. it has a fill plug on the top left back of it, is this also my fill line? and what type of fluid would I use?

Hi,
Yes, the filler plug for the system is at the upper left side of the Touch Control.

Below are pages from a Cub owner's manual telling how to fill it, and get the air out of the system, it is important to remove the air, if the system was empty, or low on fluid.

They use Case IH Hy-Tran fluid, but there are other brands, be sure it works with IH systems before buying it.
Be sure to do what it says in paragraph 4 on the 2nd page to remove the air.
Be sure to fill it the last time with the arms in the rear or down position, the fluid goes up in the unit as the arms go to the rear. If you fill it with the arms ahead, it will have too much fluid. :)

If the block level is low, check your oil dipstick. If it's above full, the shaft seal on the pump may be allowing hydraulic oil to leak into the crankcase. Not a difficult repair.
