Re: jd440 ic hydraulic pump/hyd cylinder

It seems to have done the trick....tis a bit slower than i really like but may haps the next fluid change will get the aw32 and do better. I drove front end up on 6x6 and lowered blade to help get fluid into downside.

thanks for all the help

Re: jd440 ic hydraulic pump/hyd cylinder

Re: jd440 ic hydraulic pump/hyd cylinder

Well folks....that was nicely successful!!! Though it sure is reluctant to get the air out and oil in the cyls. got my hydraulic jack to lift blade a bit and work the actuator and was able to get the lift back to operating...the down pressure is still a bit reluctant to get the oil back there, once ...

Re: jd440 ic hydraulic pump/hyd cylinder

ok so will add the 20w non det that i have and will see what transpires. the 20w should give me a little heavier oil and will see if pump can handle or may be be more efficient?

Re: jd440 ic hydraulic pump/hyd cylinder

Stan, So now the question becomes....a bit more confusing....if i get the aw32 or aw48 hyd oil, is it ok to add it to the existing 10w or necessary to drain again? and if the 20w is non-detergent would that be mixable in system as well? Since installing the rebuilt cylinder i seem to be having a bit...

Re: Jd 40c good price or not?

Timr82 I believe you would be able to use a cherry picker, of course you must be very careful with them...most of work should be less than weight of a v8 engine...come a long are pretty handy too. One caution..do not use cement block for blocking....always use 4x4 6x6 etc. Have you gotten to read th...

Re: jd440 ic hydraulic pump/hyd cylinder

am gonna try to see if can just replace seals etc....actual leak was only a drip and not a pressure leak.

for $50 its worth a try
