Customer Question

I have a JD 830 European style tractor. We had a major leak in the hydraulic hoses and after repairing that, the lift arms will not lift. the hydraulic pump in the front of the tractor is very hot and I am guessing air in the lines. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Remove one of the hoses directly at the pump. Use grease gun, or hand, and pack the pump gears with grease. Re-install the hose and start tractor.With the grease, it should have enough suction to start the oil flowing.
