Hydraulic filter

Post by Mr. John » Sun Nov 26, 2017 6:16 pm

Hey guys, would like to change the hydraulic filter on my 450D crawler. Is it simply screw the old one off and screw new one on? Or do I need to bleed pressure after?
I’m attempting to go through most of the dozer, changing fuel filter as well.
Cheers!

No bleeding/venting necessary on the Hydraulic filter. You will need to bleed the new fuel filter:vent is a hex head bleed "bolt" on the top of the fuel filter housing.
Look closely at your hydraulic fluid: if it's at all milky change it.
A complete fluid and filter change on a typical medium dozer is about $700.00 btw.I only use OEM filters and fluids.
Pushin hard or diggin deep life is good.

Thanks Amos!

The hydraulic filter lies horizontal next to the seat. Any tricks to taking if off without making a mess?
