Plow Not Working

    I have a JD Gator with the Powertach hydraulic plow. I had to replace the raise/lower cylinder because it started leaking. I extended the new cylinder and filled it with oil before I installed it. Now the pump just whines and the blade does nothing.

    When I check the dipstick on top of the pump it shows full. It won't take anymore oil in that hole, but the lines need oil because they lost a lot when they were disconnected and it was already slightly low where it had been leaking.

    I don't know how to add oil to the lines or bleed the system.. The book tells me nothing.

    Any help appreciated, we have 4" in the forcast tomorrow.
