Contaminated hydraulic oil

Recommended Posts

its probably just milky where its met the water. Drain resevoir down  and clean out. It'll flush through when you add fresh. Change filter also.

 

 Other than that you'd have to disconnect at the actuators, let it out and then just carefully bleed it afterwards. Unless its milky through out i just do the reservoir bit.

Thanks for that. Would certainly save a lot of hassle that way ?
