Hi,let's see if we can work together to get to the root of your problem! will try my best to help!

Oil quantity is correct, so what hydraulic pump do you have? One mounted on top, just behind engine, or on the transmission housing, just behind then step? Oil pump may have lost prime, and if oil does not pickup, the pump can be primed by removeing hose to pump, stuffing pump full of grease, and re-installing the hose. This will allow a better seal at the pump and should let pump pickup fluid.

pump is on transmission housing can i let it run to see if it will pick up prime.. i let it run for 2 min and didnt do ant thing

You don't want to let it run long, but reving the engine up to high idle might get it going.
