the cab is open and the bucket is way up in the air. we are just pre testing to make sure it works before we seal it up again. so you are saying to put it together and move the bucket until it stalls?? its the hydraulic pump for the drive wheels
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 2 years ago

Thank you for that

drive pump, OK,

engine off, seat bar down key switch on(not running)

open the discharge line, will bleed out a little fluid

then crank the the engine couple times, don't start

NEVER OPEN LINES WITH BUCKET IN THE AIR

ok we tried to just k8ck itnover butnit started and sprayed oil out the top breathers. we just cracked them and ran it it in idle and cracked them a bit would leak out then tightened it again. the pump.wont turn when we try to move the controls when started. it moves just a tiny tiny bit like 1/16th inch. i dont think theres air in it.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
when we first installed the pump it was close to full maybe an ounce shy at most then we ran it and it wouldnt move.

ya there is
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 2 years ago

HI

OK, was just going thru the book on it

need to check your suction line, from reservoir to pump

make sure no cracks, kinks

also mentions that it is self bleeding drives

let it get good and warm and idle for 20-25 min

engaging drives every 2-3 minutes

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it doesnt seem as though there are any kinks or cracks. will keep trying to enfage the motor, its been running for almost 25 min now and not really any progress. maybe another milimeter in turning. maybe we should try cracking more lines and seeing if there is air anywhere and keep trying to bleed
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 2 years ago

Hi

Yes , I still believe it has air in motor

keep trying, and bleed it again

Wayne

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
there are 3 hoses on the back end of the motor. one large one on top one large.on bottom. a smaller one in the middle. then a tiny line on the front that connects.to the other hydraulic motor in the other side. we bled the top.large line and the bottom large line and the front small line. the top one feeds the pump we know this because we turn the motor over and it comes out of the line not the pump. we arent sure about the bottom. the middle is hard to get to. still not working. maybe it isnbiund up or somethig is there some type of brake on these motors or some other thing to try or just keep trying to bleed?
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 2 years ago

Hi

The brake is released , when you have lap bar down

and moving the levers

Wayne

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ya the lap bar is down. i meant on the motor or somethingm in sure theres no air in the thing and if there is its gotta be like a tiny little bubble or something
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 2 years ago

Hi

Yes , keep trying with the book and I have done,

if this does not clear up, you have a pump issue

I have never seen one take this long

it is possible, new pump is faulty , never know

Ask Your Own Construction and Road Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I think I have it figured out. The pump isnmot exactly the same as the other one its a different brand so we think that there ia an alternate brake port on the motor because we tested it and its a brake return line that is getting no pressure so we need to mess with it tomorrow and we will see what we can do.
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 2 years ago
