Customer Question

We have a very old tractor - international 606 (from 1965 i think). They hydrolics aren't working so the front end loader won't go up and the 3 point hitch isn't working.
the last time it worked the loader was jumping and then just quit.
My husband added hydrolic oil or whatever but it didn't help.
Any ideas on what would cause this or do we need a technician?
thanks very much!

Hi and welcome to JA. The first thing that i would do is to change the hydraulic filter to verify that it is not the cause and plugged. But to do this you will need to remove the hydraulic pump to replace it and while you have it replaced you should check the pump to see if it is in good shape.

The fluid is milky and my husband thinks perhaps we have an ice plug somewhere.

Also, it is a hydrolic/ transmission combination.

the manual shows that the pump is no where near the filter or even if there is a filter.It's a 65 or '66 diesel if that helps.
