Trying to change the hydraulic filters on a 1968 ford 4000

Customer Question

Trying to change the hydraulic filters on a 1968 ford 4000 tractor. Got the one closest to the top and hydraulic pump. The other filter looks hopelessly buried in the bottom. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Filter in the bottom is a basic strainer. It is accessed either by removing the three point housing, or through the side of the transmission, opposite the side mounted hydraulic pump, if it has the side mounted pump. If no side mounted pump, there is blank off plate that can be removed to access it. But you may just want to flush it with diesel or kerosene and leave it alone!
