Thanks for the replys.
I saw in the manual about using the container and hose, but I would think that you would need to put some fluid in the pump tank before cycling the top, rather than just filling up the external container. Is this true?
I wouldn't think that the pump would be strong enough when completely dry to pull enough air to draw the fluid from the container to the tank. It seems like you would need a little fluid in the pump tank before you started, so the pump/cog mechanism would be submerged and form a seal. I know the pump is a positive displacement type, but it diden't look like the clearances were tight enough to pump air very well.
I disconnected the cylinders and manually cycled them to pump out all the old fluid (as much as I could), so the system is pretty much empty of fluid.
I am assuming that the fluid level should be up to the bottom of the fill hole to be considered full (like on a holley fuel bowl sight plug). Is this correct?
Also, I am planning on cycling the system with the hydraulic cylinders disconnected from the top to reduce wear on the top. I am planning on keeping the top cylinders positioned so they don't bind on anything as they are extending.
Does anyone see a problem with this, or does there need to be some "weight" on the cylinders to properly bleed the system?
