Hydraulic Pump Prime 2009 379XL
Just finished running new hydraulic lines, replacing a bad hydraulic cylinder and replacing all the seals on the leaking pump.
All went good until trying to re-prime the pump. Motor is running but I can't get it to draw any fluid.
Tried running it for 20 seconds and letting it cool for a while (6 or so times).
Anyone know of any tricks to help prime the pump. Spoke to FR today and they suggested to fill (prime) the hoses before connecting to the manifold in an effort to displace se of the air in the lines.
Thanks in advance.
PS- I'm pretty positive all of the hoses and wires were connected back to their original locations. I tagged them,created a paper schematic and took pictures.
I just tore apart the pump again just to double check that everything was reassembled correctly.
